Take the Patriot Voices Made in the USA Christmas Challenge!

Did you know that a large percentage of our Christmas gift dollars go to manufacturing companies overseas? That’s right. Many of the gifts that end up under the Christmas tree are manufactured in other countries.

This Christmas season, millions of hard-working American families, who count on their jobs in the manufacturing sector are struggling to make ends meet.  Patriot Voices is committed to changing that! In support of the manufacturing and small business communities, we are launching our 3rd Annual Made in the USA Christmas Challenge. 

As a part of this effort, we are asking you during your holiday gift buying to make a concerted effort to buy as many items as possible that are “Made in the USA”.  Let’s support American companies and American-made products at the checkout counter. 

You can help turn things around this season by taking the Patriot Voices Made in the USA Christmas Challenge. 

When you head out shopping on Black Friday, take a look at your gift-giving budget and decide to purchase as many of your gifts as possible from US Manufacturers.  It’s that simple!

And be sure and support Small Business Saturday on November 28th to help the small business owners in your community!

Add your name to the challenge, and let’s make this a Red White and Blue Christmas!

New EPA Regulations will kill jobs and hike consumer energy bills.


“Hardworking families across this country continue to face an uphill climb as long as President Obama is in the White House. With the announcement that he has put into place job-killing regulations on coal-fired plants, hundreds of thousands of Americans will lose their jobs.” Rick Santorum


I stand with Patriot Voices because:

  • These regulations from the EPA are unfair and unnecessary and will cost thousands of workers their jobs and millions more will face higher energy costs.
  • Obamacare is a heavy-enough burden for an economy coming out of the worst recession since the great depression.
  • With our shrinking economy, we cannot afford even more burdens and roadblocks on businesses that want to be hiring workers.
  • This radical proposal to stop “climate change” is part of the elite liberal agenda and is not supported by hardworking Americans across the country.

Enough is enough, President Obama. Stop the war on jobs and stop hurting American families.

To: All members of the 114th United States Congress

I, the undersigned, a lover of liberty, an American patriot, and defender of the right to bear arms, do hereby implore you, our elected representatives, to protect our Second Amendment rights and stop efforts aimed at "universal background checks."

Recent incidents of heartbreaking gun violence have brought the issue of gun safety into the spotlight.  Putting further restrictions on law abiding citizen-gun owners is not the answer.

We have gun laws in place, we need to work hard to enforce existing laws, not create new laws that do nothing to deter criminals and madmen.

The Second Amendment was drafted to protect our First Amendment rights, and according to my First Amendment right to petition, I expect review of this request, and will hold you accountable for your response to it.

Finally, I do hereby pledge to stand with Patriot Voices and conservative patriots nationwide in support of the Second Amendment and against efforts to implement "universal background checks."

Take the 8th Annual Made in the USA Christmas Challenge!

We have long been talking about how supporting the American worker and manufacturing will grow the economy in a way that benefits everyone. Donald Trump won the presidency talking about these important issues!

As we enter the Christmas season, millions of hard-working American families in the manufacturing industry or in communities impacted by that industry are struggling to make ends meet.

Did you know that a large percentage of our Christmas gift dollars go overseas? For every $1 we spend in the USA on manufacturing, $1.81 will be added to the economy. That is a great deal! 

Sometimes it is simply difficult to find products made in the USA. The next best thing would be to buy local. Support the small businesses and workers in your own community.

This is how it works. After you sign the pledge, just take a look at your gift-giving budget and decide to spend as much as you can on things made in this country or sold by local businesses. It’s that simple!  

Also consider shopping on Saturday, November 30th to support local businesses on Small Business Saturday.

Help make this a Red White and Blue Christmas by putting the American worker first. Join us by taking the 8th Annual Made in the USA Christmas Challenge!

No Budget No Pay

The “No Budget, No Pay Act” would require members of Congress to forgo pay for every day after October 1 that they don’t adopt a budget and pass all of its spending bills.  Once members approved a spending plan and appropriated the money, they would start receiving paychecks again but couldn’t collect any retroactive pay.  The premise is simple: don’t do your job and you don’t get paid.

Sounds logical enough. When you are in the private sector, if you don’t do your job, you don’t get paid or worse you get fired.  We should expect the same from our elected officials.

Remarkably, Congress hasn’t passed a budget since 2009. The United States faces its most serious financial crisis and Senate Democrats could not be bothered to write a budget because budgets force people to make choices.  This has to change.  

In the longer term, we need a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution so the federal government has to balance its budget like our states do.  And in the short term, we need a new law to start the process of fiscal reform today. The “No Budget, No Pay Act” is a good start.

Sign the petition below to support the “No Budget, No Pay Act.”  You can also obtain contact information for your Senator and Member of Congress.  Please call or email them and tell them to vote for the “No Budget, No Pay Act” (S. 1981 and H.R. 3643).  You can access a sample letter here that you can cut, paste, add your own personalization and then email to your Member of Congress and Senator.

Americans develop a budget within their household.  We should be able to rely on our lawmakers to do the same for our nation.  This is a core constitutional and job responsibility.
