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!

REFORM OUR IMMIGRATION SYSTEM NOW

With the election of Donald Trump, we are finally hopeful that there will be sensible immigration reform for our country.

Since Congress has yet to have the courage to produce a bill we could wholeheartedly endorse, we are making suggestions for what we want a future bill to to look like. 

Patriot Voices chairman Rick Santorum offered an immigration plan last year that we believe makes the most sense and we hope President-elect Trump includes these important provisions in his plan.

Here are the highlights::

  • End President Obama’s executive order granting amnesty to illegal immigrants who have been here longer than 5 years

  • End birthright citizenship for those who are born here to illegal immigrants.

  • Withhold federal funds from cities that offer safe haven to illegal immigrants.

  • Implement e-verify for all businesses to ensure that employers who hire illegal immigrants are held accountable.

  • Implement a tracking system that monitors every immigrant who comes into this country, and would also keep track of when they have overstayed their time.  Those who violate the law will be penalized with fines and possible deportation.

This plan offers the most reasonable solution to our immigration challenges.  If you agree that this is the right approach to fix our immigration system, then add your name below.

Demand The Truth about Benghazi!

5,497 signatures

It’s been more than two years and we still don’t have answers about what happened in Benghazi, Libya when four brave Americans were killed on September 11, 2012. 

While the White House is doing its best to quietly and purposefully sweep this tragedy under the rug, we are Patriot Voices are refusing to back down.

We refuse to back down until former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton comes out of the dark and starts answering the important questions about who knew what and when.

Former Secretary of State Clinton asked "what difference, at this point, does it make?"  It makes a big difference.  The truth matters, and the victims' families as well as the American people deserve to know what happened.  Watch this video and help us demand that Hillary Clinton come clean on the following:

•         Who knew what and when?

•         Why were warnings ignored?

•         Was there a cover up?

•         Why were the talking points changed 12 times?

•         Why did her spokesperson delete critical facts regarding the attacks?

 


Stop Government Hypocrisy: Sign Our Petition!

6,325 signatures

Those who represent us in Washington are suggesting that they – the very ones who passed Obamacare – are finding ways to weasel their way out of having to follow that law.

This is absurd and an example of government hypocrisy:  Do as I say, but not as I do.

Patriot Voices is compiling a petition to present to Congress to tell them that exempting themselves from Obamacare is wrong, hypocritical and a slap in the face to our democratic process. Add your name below to those who want to stop government hypocrisy!

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."

Stop Chuck Hagel's Nomination as Secretary of Defense

1,867 voices

Senator Chuck Hagel is the wrong choice for Secretary of Defense because his confirmation would send a dangerous signal to Iran and other radical Islamic elements which would make our country and our allies less secure.  Not only did Senator Hagel tip off the Iranians that he would not use strength to prevent them from obtaining nuclear weapons, he disrespects our strongest ally in the middle east, Israel. Time after time, Sen. Hagel has sought to distance the United States from Israel and refused to support efforts to end terrorist attacks on Israel.

Chuck Hagel’s anti-Israel, pro-Iran mindset makes him uniquely unqualified to serve as our Defense Secretary.

Add your voice to Patriot Voices' fight to stop Chuck Hagel’s nomination as Secretary of Defense using the short form below.

UPDATE: We’ve learned that Chuck Hagel’s confirmation hearing is set for January 31st. Please take three minutes to call or email your senators now and tell them to vote "no" on this nomination.  Find your senators at this link.  

UPDATE #2: The Senate Armed Services Committee announced that they are postponing the vote on Chuck Hagel's nomination to be Secretary of Defense. This is because of your calls, emails and overall opposition to Senator Hagel! Let’s keep the pressure on! Here are three easy ways to take action:
