Patriot Voices PAC supports Karen Handel

We are so proud to be supporting Karen Handel for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District special election to fill the seat created when Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price left Congress to serve in the Administration. 

Karen is a unique candidate who has broad appeal and can be a strong voice for conservative principles in Congress. Among her depth of experience, she formerly served as Georgia’s first Republican Secretary of State and was also deputy chief of staff to Gov. Sonny Perdue. She became well known when she resigning from The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation after it reversed its decision to stop supporting Planned Parenthood.

She has taken on Planned Parenthood before; lets send her to Congress where she can continue that fight and more!

Princeton: Santorum discusses degradation of traditional American values

The Princetonian

By Alexander Stangl | Apr 18, 2017

On Tuesday, former U.S. Representative and Senator Rick Santorum discussed the degradation of “traditional American values." Santorum noted that one particular value – freedom – is equally important for both members of the Left and Right, especially among modern youth.

According to Santorum, the manner by which the United States both conceptualizes and celebrates freedom is what sets the United States apart from other nations. He noted that Americans' unique view of freedom has been a key driver of the United States' rise to the status of world power. In particular, Santorum stressed the origin of rights. Santorum noted that, unlike in other nations, the rights of Americans come from “Judeo-Christian values,” upon which, he argued, Western civilization was founded. 

“Rights don’t come from government,” Santorum said, referencing the U.S. Declaration of Independence. “They come from God.”

President Trump will succeed if he keeps promises

By Rick Santorum

(CNN) If President Trump wants to go big league, he needs to make an immediate impact with a bold agenda in the first 100 days. From Supreme Court nominations to immigration and trade promises, Mr. Trump needs to make his priorities stick.

First, he must immediately nominate his candidate to replace Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. Trump's presidency has the chance to save the Constitution from obliteration by a runaway Supreme Court, and there could be no greater accomplishment. His Supreme Court nominations likely will define his presidency.

There are critical cases before the Court in late April that, without a replacement being seated, will further erode of our liberty. Speed is of the essence because the press is already beginning to report which candidates he is meeting with. If he wants his selection to get a fair hearing, the selection needs to be made in January, before Trump opponents can unfairly target the nominee for defeat.

Phila Inquire: Santorum - Trump must now deliver for working families

A political earthquake shook the nation and the world Tuesday when Donald Trump shocked all the prognosticators and won the presidency.

Those same pundits are digging through the wreckage of their predictions to try to figure out why Trump was able to prove them wrong, but to me, the answer was on full display over two years ago during a chance meeting I had with Trump at his New York office.

In the summer of 2014, Trump reached out to me to stop by his office the next time I was in Manhattan. Later that summer, I dropped by Trump Towers with my daughter Sarah Maria. When we walked into his office, he was sitting behind his desk holding a copy of my book Blue Collar Conservatives that I had published that spring.

The first thing he said: "I read your book."

To which I laughed and said, "The hell you read my book."

Trump shot back, "I did, it was great!"

So I did the obvious thing, I quizzed him on the message in my book - that the great middle of America was hollowing out as a result of big-government policies that were helping the elites but leaving blue-collar families behind. And to my great surprise, Trump passed my test with flying colors.

We discussed the problems facing Middle America - specifically the implications of unfettered globalization on American manufacturing and its effect on wages for blue-collar families.

The billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump not only got it, he was as upset as I was that these families were being left behind. He said he might run for president and, if he did, he wanted to take that message to the American voter - and did he ever.
