The Republican Party must stop in-fighting and start working together to help American tax payers and stop the current administration's road to socialism. The RNC and Republican leaders from Congress, Republican governors, and conservative leaders from organizations must come together with a strategy and priority list for Americans.
Republican National Committee Chairman Michael S. Steele on Thursday challenged some of the most prominent critics in his party to fire him or "shut up." Responding directly to a report Thursday in The Washington Times that some top donors are bypassing the RNC to give to the Republican Governors Association and other party campaign committees and candidates because of discontent with Mr. Steele, the national chairman struck an aggressive tone.
Mr. Steele referred to former RNC chairmen and finance chairmen who have criticized him publicly as being "the problem; they're not the solution." Former RNC Chairmen Jim Nicholson, Rich Bond and Frank J. Fahrenkopf Jr. have questioned some of Mr. Steele's side activities, including giving speeches for pay and promoting his new book, "Right Now: A 12-Step Program for Defeating the Obama Agenda," while holding down the party's top job. Everyone should read this book and develop a plan.
The Times on Thursday quoted Mr. Nicholson - who served as secretary of veterans affairs for President George W. Bush - as saying, "I do not see how a chairman can do book tours and give speeches for fees that go to him and not the RNC, which needs more money badly."
Mr. Gingrich told reporters that "Michael Steele makes a number of old-time Republicans very nervous. He comes out of a different background. ... But I think he's pretty close to what we need. He's different, he's gutsy and he's going to make a number of Republicans mad," according to an Associated Press account.
Mr. Steele defended his stewardship of the party and his handling of party finances, saying RNC cash was critical to the party's gubernatorial wins in New Jersey and Virginia in November. Let's raise cash and win elections.
There are several key issues that Republicans can target to win seats in Congress.
Be Truthful and Honest to American Citizens
Limit Federal Government Powers
Stop Borrowing Money
Be Fiscal Conservative (Cut Useless Programs and Spending)
Promote Individual Rights
Term Limits for Members of Congress (w/no benefits)
Support the RNC in its efforts.

Congrats to Mike Steele in winning the votes today to become the next RNC Chair. The Republican Party needs Mike Steele to refocus its efforts and to win the confidence of the American people.
Michael Steele’s election as Chairman of the Republican National Committee is a historic achievement for Maryland, our Party and the nation. Now, the RNC will focus on the concerns of all Americans in the spirit of President Lincoln and Ronald Reagan. Having had the privilege of working with Michael Steele in the Maryland Republican Party, I look forward to supporting him in his efforts to rebuild the Republican Party. He will include more working families, give them hope and have them keep more of their tax dollars. He will help the party in its efforts to gain the American trust and restore the values of conservative fiscal policies. Mike will help our party grow and craft the strategy of fighting our way back to a Majority in Congress.
Again, it is a great day to be a Republican in the United States!!!

We all agree that the Republican Party needs a new message and messenger. Republicans lost their traditional “economy” issue due to the economic crisis and the “bailout” worth billions of dollars—proposed by a Republican President. The Republican values of a free market, smaller government, and individual responsibility were thrown out the window during this election cycle. The Republican Party let the Democrats steal their issues.
The economy was the overwhelming issue on the minds of voters. Democrats were able to define their message; whereas, the Republicans were simply unable to frame this issue in a way in which voters could relate.
