Generations of Stolen Black Dreams


In response to my article, “Please Tell Black Lives Matter to Shut Up and Go Away”, a sincere black activist emailed asking me with what would I replace it? I asked him to explain. The bottom line of his lengthy passionate reply is “Negroes” are still not free in America. He says America has reneged on…

Hating Trump's Message

While on an aerobic machine at the gym, I caught Trump on TV. It occurred to me that Trump's high poll numbers really represent the American people vs the America hating Left. Trump's campaign slogan is “Make America Great Again.” Them's fightin' words to the Left.

For decades the Left has used its domination of the…

Please Tell Black Lives Matter to Shut Up and Go Away!


Born in 1856, Booker T. Washington was an amazing black educator, orator, author and adviser to US presidents.

Isn't it interesting that black men and women in America way back then were achieving extraordinary success? Meanwhile, liberals and Democrats claim America is such a hellhole of racism that… Continue

Nothing ignited my late mom's Baltimore living-in-the-hood anger more than someone “messing” with one of her “nine months” (her kids). I have a similar protective reaction to attacks on the Tea Party/We the People.

Not only have We the People had to endure mainstream media, Democrat and GOP establishment attacks, some on…

Why Liberals are Dangerous and Must Never be in Charge


The Left (liberal mainstream media) practically had a ticker tape parade for Ohio Gov John Kasich for answers he gave on two issues during the GOP debate.  Liberals' praise of Kasich shows they have chosen emotion over logical reasoned thinking. This makes liberals irresponsible and dangerous. These…

About the RPV Network

This "Ning" web site was established to assist the RPV with it's goal of expanding the use of Web Technology to enhance communications with and among Republicans and those who believe in it's core principles. While this is somewhat experimental, we believe it will have a positive impact on the Republican Party of Virginia.



Corruption in government is not a Left or Right problem, it is a problem for Everyone.

Its a matter of Right vs Wrong



"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent."

Thomas Jefferson



Looking to the future if we intend to make a difference we must include more in our focus than the elections of the political players.  We must pay attention to the legislation that is under consideration expecially as it comes up for votes and equally important are any treaties that may come up for Senate ratification.

We must be on the lookout for Presidential Executive Orders that usurp power from the Congress and in those instances demand that the Congress take action to restrain incursions and enforce the balance of power according to the Constitution.

Listed below on this page are links for the contact information for your Congressman/woman and your US Senators, please use them.  It is important that we maintain a conversation with our representatives to make our views known.

A silent citizenry are but slaves to the government as our Republic is such that for free men to remain so they must remain vigilant and exercise their voice.  Who decides?  We do!

"Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country."

--Noah Webster, On the Education of Youth in America, 1788

"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman."

 --Thomas Paine, The American Crises, No. 1, 1776

"We are a nation that has a government -- not the other way around. And this makes us special among the nations of the earth. Our government has no power except that granted to it by the people. It is time to check and reverse the growth of government, which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of the governed."

--Ronald Reagan



"No morn ever dawned more favorable than ours did; and no day was every more clouded than the present! Wisdom, and good examples are necessary at this time to rescue the political machine from the impending storm."


 --George Washington, letter to James Madison, 1786



"To get the inestimable good that freedom of the press assures one must know how to submit to the inevitable evil it gives rise to."


--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America, 1835


"Let us recollect that peace or war will not always be left to our option; that however moderate or unambitious we may be, we cannot count upon the moderation, or hope to extinguish the ambition of others."


--Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 34, 1788



"The multiplication of public offices, increase of expense beyond income, growth and entailment of a public debt, are indications soliciting the employment of the pruning knife."



 --Thomas Jefferson, letter to Spencer Roane, 1821

Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Wilson's Message for Tea Party

I confess. With 5 minutes left in the championship game, Russell Wilson's third interception and Seattle two touchdowns behind, I turned the channel assuming Green Bay won. Upon turning back to the game, I was shocked to see Seattle ahead by one point. Seattle ultimately won the game in overtime and is going to the Superbowl. During his post game interview, Wilson said despite 3 interceptions and the score, they simply kept fighting.…See More

Six years ago I wrote the song, “American Tea Party Anthem” and was asked to perform my song at rallies across America on a Tea Party Express national bus tour.

He cited a recent incident in which a little girl was kicked out of school for saying “God bless you” when a classmate sneezed, punished for…See More

A Little Past Due Love for Cousin Glen

As a 9 or 10 year old, my knowledge of the situation was limited. Therefore, I can not pass judgment on the adults. I do not know what was done or not done to rescue my cousin Glen, a little boy who was severely abused by his mom, my late aunt Bummie (a nickname). My dad threatened to report Aunt Bummie to the authorities and…See More
