Reince Priebus, Chairman
The Republican National Committee
310 First Street SE
Washington, D.C. 20003

SUBJECT: New Speaker of the House

Dear Sir:

If you want to save the Republican party, you and the old fogey members of the House (the establishment folks) need to either resign your posts or come out of the 1980's, or wherever it is you currently reside, and join the new generation in 2015. Your 'old' methods of governing simply do not work or else you consider becoming rich from bribes in office as somehow accomplishing something good for the country. In that case, they work very well on a personal level. John Boehner was a solid reminder of that fact.

Your party needs to elect someone with the intellect, courage, and cajones to take it to the opposition. Unfortunately, thanks to you and your compadres, we have to once again fight the Democratic
Socialists and the GOP establishment before we can set about responsibly repairing our broken nation.

For starters, Kevin McCarthy is a non-starter ... a guy who for years has supported talk of open borders? That's a vote for California, not the United States! In my opinion, the candidates for speaker in this present hour are:

Trey Gowdy (R), 4th District, SC Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi
Jason Chaffetz (R), 3rd District, UT Chairman of Oversight & Government Reform Committee
Jim Jordan (R), 4th District, OH Member of Oversight & Government Reform Committee
Louie Gohmert (R), 1st District, TX Member of The House Judiciary Committee; he also personally tore down the gates of the WWII Memorial after the president ordered the memorial closed to groups of visiting WWII veterans.

Any of these true, conservative republicans would put the Democratic Socialists and the president on notice that a new sheriff is in town. The socialists would be forced to vote on uncomfortable issues and the president would be forced to veto any legislation passed by both houses of Congress. Once and for all, the people (owners) of the country would know who the real obstructionists are ... and, it ain't the republicans!

You better get your act together before a new Conservative Constitutionalist party is formed!

P.S. In the Senate, you must work on dumping Mitch McConnell as Senate Majority Leader!

I believe that voters should have to take and pass a basic test on government and current events. And, I believe they should have to retake it every 5 years. I don't see why people who do not know the issues or candidates... More ›

4th, (or whoever else) What are your thoughts or suggestions about raising the voting age to 25 or 30?

Has everybody heard ... Jason Chaffetz has thrown his hat into the ring and announced he is running for Speaker of the House, challenging left leaning McCarthy for the position. Write or call your representative if you truly... More ›

4th Gen, I thought of term limits as well, but they would also eliminate, in time, the true constitutional conservatives I listed as exceptional replacements for John Boehner. The real answer, to returning our government to... More ›

So, 4th, I hope that you wrote your own letter ... let your opinions be known!

Bob, good letter and straight to the point. But, you know that power and greed trumps all in Washington. Never saw a politician come into power and go out broke. Those people in DC don't care about you, your family, or... More ›

Bob, Great to have another voice of common sense working toward a solution. Rally the Troops! Unless "WE, The People..." get involved we are going to continue on a downward spiral . H.R. Grimm

Bob: The fact of the matter is he made a speech outlining his position on Border Security. Like you don't get your thoughts from the GOP websites? But you never admit you are wrong and we know that, but it is sure cool to... More ›
