Thank you Senator Santorum for leading this diplomatic mission to Israel. Please send our wishes for peace and solidarity for all people of good will in the Middle East.

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.

CRPD is back! We stopped it once before but efforts are again underway to ratify the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.  We need your help again!  If ratified, this dangerous treaty would threaten U.S. sovereignty and parental rights - it must be stopped.

While we are still waiting for the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to schedule a hearing, there is something you can do right now.

The House Sovereignty Caucus is preparing a letter to the U.S. Senate and House leaders voicing their opposition and asking them to not ratify this outrageous treaty. Will you help us recruit your congressman to sign that letter? These members of Congress need to hear from their constituents so your communication can make the difference!

  2. Take 5 minutes to contact your Representative by email and phone to urge him or her to sign onto this important letter to oppose the ratification of CRPDClick here to find a sample email and a link to find your congressman's contact information.

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?

We certainly need tax reform. I have heard Mike Huckabee say good things about the Fair tax. Unfortunately, I don’t think it will happen with Obama in the White House.

To seek truth, beauty and goodness

I'm searching for happiness, which is the longing of every human soul.  As Augustine said centuries ago, our hearts were made for you Oh God, and they will not rest until they rest in you.

I'm trying to do my part by joining Patriot Voices and promoting conservative principles in my community.  I'm also working on being the best mom, wife and physician I can be.

Preserving the traditional definition of marriage in law is key to protecting the only institution that connects children with their moms and dads.

The birthright of every child to know and as far as possible be raised by his or her married mother and father trumps the emotional needs of consenting adults.

We must promote the marriage culture of getting married before having children in order to pursue the conservative goals of limited government. When the family structure breaks down, the government has to step in with costly social services.

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:

• Go to to send an email to your senators

Click here to to find links to tweet your senators:

• Call the capitol switchboard and ask to speak to your senators: 202-224-3121

UPDATE #3: Sen. Harry Reid has scheduled the confirmation vote for Friday, February 15th.  A 60 vote threshold is required.  Keep calling and emailing!

National Petition for a Balanced Budget Amendment

Sponsored by Patriot Voices

To: All members of the 114th United States Congress

I, the undersigned, a lover of liberty, an American patriot, and a concerned citizen, do hereby implore you, our elected representatives, to immediately introduce, vote on, and pass a 28th amendment to the United States Constitution mandating a balanced budget.

A Balanced Budget Amendment would require by law that the federal government not spend more than it takes in and would ultimately cap federal spending at 18% of gross domestic product (GDP).

Because our country can't afford to continue down this unsustainable fiscal course any longer, I urge you to pass this Balanced Budget Amendment before completing the federal budget for the coming fiscal year.

According to my First Amendment right to petition, I expect full compliance with this request, and will hold you accountable and responsible for fulfilling it.

Finally, I do hereby pledge to stand with Rick Santorum, Patriot Voices, and conservative patriots nationwide in support of fiscal sanity, accountability, and a balanced budget.

Hereby signed,

I am not a big balanced budget amendment fan, but this past few days have been absolutely ridiculous. If I don’t see serious entitlement reform in the next 60 days, I will have no choice than go throw my support behind the balanced budget amendment movement.

My husband thinks that the world economy will collapse if we pass a BB amendment. Not sure why…what does Senator Santorum think about that concern?

I agree, we should patronize Hobby Lobby. They have done a great job with custom picture framing in my home.

Religious liberty is a fundamental human right and the government shall not prohibit the free exercise thereof.

Gun Violence Commission - I nominate Karen Santorum

President Obama said that he wanted to include people from across the political spectrum in VP Biden's gun violence commission.  I nominate Karen Santorum.  I believe that her experience as a mother of eight children, an author of a book about grieving the loss of a child, a nurse with skills in patient advocacy, a lawyer and a gun owner makes her uniquely qualified.  Patriots across America want an advocate for children, patients and the second amendment on Presidents Obama's commission.  I nominate Karen Santorum.


Please consider using social media and calling the White House to nominate Karen.

This is my personal endorsement and does not necessarily reflect the view of Patriot Voices.
