1. I believe we should focus our message and efforts to our constituency (whether Local or State) in a fashion similar to the "Contract with America" method employed by Newt Gingrich and fellow Republicans the year prior to the 104th Congress (1993-1994). Here is why:
a. It worked and conservative Republicans were overwhelmingly elected.
b. It enables us to provide common sense solutions of which I still believe is more closely aligned to our voting
public than solutions provided by Democrats.
c. It provides clarity and an easy to understand message for voters in general.
d. Refer back to 1a.
2. I just retired after a 21 year Army career...I continue to be an avid supporter of Republican politics and I do not pretend to have the answers...I just want to provide some thoughts to help Republicans based on conservative principles get elected in the same vain as many as you...while I was prohibited from political engagement during my military career, I plan on engaging from this day forward.
