Who Will Be Nominated for President in 2016?

The media are already speculating about who will be the Republican candidate for President in 2016. Maureen Dowd has already predicted that the Democratic nominee for President will be Hillary Clinton and the Republican nominee will be former Florida Governor Jeb Bush. Will the Republican nominee be the one who scores best in the televised debates? Will he be a conservative who is supported by grassroots Republicans? Or will it be a candidate selected by the Establishment, the people we call the RINOs (Republicans In Name Only), or sometimes call country-club Republicans? The answer to that question is up to you, and to other grassrooters who care about the future of the United States. We must offer the American people a real choice not an echo of failed policies – a candidate who is a real conservative who responds to the grassroots instead of to the Establishment.

A Choice Not An EchoI believe there are millions of conservatives who believe in America. It’s our job to find them and get them to vote and to participate in our political Party process so we can preserve this great country that God has blessed so richly. I’m inspired by the story in the Bible when the fishermen Apostles complained to Jesus that they were hungry and the fish were not biting. Jesus told them, "Let down your nets for the catch," and they caught so many fish that they almost broke their nets. There are millions of conservatives who believe in America; it’s up to us to find them and get them to vote and to participate in our political party process so we can preserve this great country.

Grassroots conservative Republicans have won in the past, and we can do it again in 2016. We won in 1964 when we defeated Nelson Rockefeller and nominated Barry Goldwater. We won again when we nominated Ronald Reagan in 1980. So we know we can do it IF you make up your mind to participate in the political party process.
