As we enter into the month of November, it’s time to begin making plans for the holidays. But this November also means we are just one year from an election in which we can take back the White House, and take back our country.
While it may seem that there is plenty of time to focus on the election, we need to start planning now. The Republican Primary will be held on March 15, 2016. The field of Republican candidates is large, and we need to be able to make an informed decision when we go to the polls.
Our October Newsletter contained the top ten GOP candidates, as determined by Real Clear Politics. The basic biographical information was given for those candidates, with a link for each one to their websites.
The Republican Party of Florida (www.Florida.GOP) is another source of information, and also has many opportunities with which to get involved.
I recently saw a quote: “When you do nothing, you feel overwhelmed & powerless. But when you get involved, you feel the sense of hope and accomplishment that comes from knowing you are working to make things better”-Unknown.
There are going to be many opportunities for each of us to get involved here in Lee County and we will keep you informed of those opportunities. Every little bit will help in the effort to take back the White House and restore our Country!
Let’s all get involved, and help bring back the principles upon which our nation was founded.

FROM OUR PRESIDENT JOYCE EASTON
A little gem making the rounds is purported to be a letter to the editor by a gentleman named James W. Anderson of Talledega, AL. It has been online and passed via email for several years, but it is still relevant today. Full of
snark and sarcastic wit, I hope it brings a little levity to your day.
12 Reasons I Voted Democrat
1. I voted Democratic because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I now may marry my Labrador.
2. I voted Democratic because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene but the Government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn’t.
3. I voted Democratic because I believe the Government will
do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.
4. I voted Democratic because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as I agree with what is said and nobody else is offended by it.
5. I voted Democratic because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.
6. I voted Democratic because I believe that people who can’t tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in 10 years if I don’t start driving a Prius.
7. I voted Democratic because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.
8. I voted Democratic because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education and Social Security benefits, and we should take away the Social Security from those who paid into it.
9. I voted Democratic because I believe that businesses should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.
10. I voted Democratic because I believe liberal Judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.
11. I voted Democratic because I think that it’s better to pay billions for their oil to people who hate us but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, spotted owl, gopher or fish.12. I voted Democratic because my head is so firmly misplaced toward the south end of my body; it’s unlikely that I’ll ever have another point of view.
No trees, Spotted Owls, or Red Cock-headed Woodpeckers
were harmed in the sending of this message.
