You Can Make a Difference

Two years ago, if someone had told me that Republicans would hold the House, Senate, and gain the White House, I would have (nicely!) disagreed with them.  After the emergence of the killer “October surprise” video clip, there seemed no feasible possibility of then-Republican nominee Donald Trump besting Democrat Hillary Clinton.  Boy, was I wrong, and am I glad I was!

Since the 2016 election, President Trump and our Republican Congress have brought about one of the greatest economic recoveries in American history, installed not just one, but two (!) new conservative justices on the Supreme Court, and restored respect for our nation around the world.  Based on these results alone, it’s safe to say they’ve kept their promises made on the campaign trail.  As conservatives, we need this string of success to continue, and the only thing it depends on is, you guessed it—YOU.

A few weeks ago, I was listening to the radio during my morning routine and my ears perked up when I heard one of the DJ’s say that a recent survey had been released, reporting that at least fifty percent of millennials would give up their right to vote if it meant erasing their student debt.
