chp_capitol

Attitude Reflects Leadership   The election is over, the results are in and the people have spoken. President Obama won the electoral vote by a distinct margin as well as the popular vote- although, admittedly by a lesser margin.

Reality Bites – Lessons From November 6th

WH

Democrats had an amazing election night, so much so one would think Republicans would be doing some serious soul searching. Instead what are we hearing? • We lost our momentum due to Sandy • Our country is made up of more “takers” than “makers” with those takers just wanting free stuff. • We weren’t anti-abortion enough • The liberal media is in the bag for Obama • D...

This was just another slap i...


Let Women Die Day – A Day to Remember

Let Women Die Day turned out to be June 13th.  HB 5711 just passed 70-39 with six Democrats voting yes...Charles, Brunner, Paul Clemente, Bob Constan, George Darany, Richard LeBlanc and Lesia Liss.  HB 5712 and HB 5713 will be reviewed after their summer break as they want to make sure the proposed ban after 20 weeks of pregnancy — which doesn't include an exception for rape, incest or fetal ...
