  • Provide resources to support our local, state and national candidates who share the basic values of the Republican party on traditional values, family, business,etc.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe in the traditional values of the Republican party which encourage hard work, personal responsibility, lower taxes, 2nd Amendment, etc.  I further believe that we need to bring back the basic values to our state by helping to identify and recruit Republican candidates who can make a difference in the affairs of our state.  I think we need to provide the public,  information on many topics in a non partisan way so they can make an informed decision on many issues.  

We need to make California a Golden State again so that our citiizens can choose to live here rather than moving out of the state because of higher taxes, crime and violence affecting the quality of our life.
