In order to pull the State of Connecticut out of the ditch into which it has been driven by our Governors and Elected Officals over the last three decades, we are going to have to go back to our basic Connecticut values – hard work, perseverance, fiscal responsibility, and adherence to the rule of law. The tenet of the Democratic Party is to “Make poverty as comfortable as possible”, we don’t agree. The tenet of the Republican Party is, well, quite honestly, I have no idea what the Republican Party stands for anymore. Our plan is to grow the vibrant economy of our wealthy little state and that is the way to fight poverty, it brings comfort as well as pride, respect, and self-esteem. Our biggest enemy is the divisive rhetoric from just about all politicians over the past 12 years. We therefore, support the efforts of the Progressive Conservative Alliance of the United States of America.

We Need to Change the Debate Format
Watching the most recent debate between Bob Stefanowski and Ned Lamont the CTMirror reported that there were a “few zingers” but little substance. The audience, although frequently admonished, added to the casual atmosphere that we were attending an entertainment event rather than a political debate, by hooting, whistling, and applauding.
Let’s face it, debates are forums in which each candidate tried to get the best, as the CTMirror puts it, “zingers” and hammer home one point whether it is factual or impactful or not. Stefanowski’s mantra was “taxes” and the inevitability that Lamont, being a Democrat, would raise taxes. On the other hand, Lamont described how his opponent would rip the very textbooks from our children’s hands, take grandma’s life-saving medicine away, and resurrect the long-settled issue of pre-existing conditions. The only problem is that none of it is true. It is basically 90 minutes of what we common folk refer to as bullshit.

Constitution Day 2015
September 17 is Constitution Day. The Constitution will be 231 years old.
The Framers of the Constitution effectively protected us from having our rights taken away. But they never thought that we would give them away.
As countries go, the United States is one of the relative youngsters, nevertheless, our constitution is the longest lasting constitution in human history. So, Happy Birthday to the most important document in the life of every American citizen, a document which represents and embodies the freedoms that we have been enjoying for the last 240 years.
Connecticut is Coming Closer to Joining the NPV Compact and Becoming Part of California
Here are the Republicans who voted with the Democrats and Progressives (and with California)
Kevin D. Witkos – 8th District Republican
George Logan – 17th District Republican
Heather Somers – 28th District Republican
There was a very good article that appeared in CT Viewpoints written by John Stoehr. Although I agree with very few of the arguments nor his conclusions, it is one of the very few that I have read that presents a cogent and rational argument against National Popular Vote (“NPV”). Bravo.
Debunking the Myth of Equal Pay Day (Again)
I didn’t think there were many who still believe that there is a sinister Gender Wage Gap in this country. Everyone has heard it. Most people are aware that it has been thoroughly debunked, and frankly, I find it hard to believe that there are actually some people still pitching this , but April 10 was Equal Pay Day and every April 10, we must once again debunk this myth – “For every dollar a man earns a woman earns only $0.77”.
Connecticut is the wealthiest state in the country. We are situated between the Financial Center of the World and the Technical Hub of the East Coast. Within our borders are the headquarters of some of the most important corporations in the world. So, why are our largest cities some of the most financially distressed in the entire nation? See if you can detect any trends in this table of the most distressed cities in our state.

The Conservative Party was established in the hopes of being about to correct, or at least reverse the consistent failures and corruption of the current two-party system. The Conservative Party desires to support candidates for state and local government who will impose fiscal discipline, restrain the reach of the federal government as outlined in the Constitution and defend and preserve our eroding individual freedoms.
Connecticut’s deficit is out of control and it is nor only going to take significant expense reductions to balance the budget but it is going to require a total change to the way in which the state does business. The federal and state governments are out of control in their growth and need to be checked and made to arrest and reverse their overreaches. State employees need to be compensated fairly but more akin to the private sector and lavish pensions and benefits are unsustainable. Education is one of the attractions of our state, and our public schools are among the best in the country. but many schools and districts are not performing they are regressing and deteriorating and to fix this problem we need to determine what the issues are. THE SOLUTION IS NOT THROWING MORE MONEY AND HOPING SOMETHING CHANGES. That has been tried and has not worked. Throwing more money at failing school districts is not going to help without identifying the problems.
Join us to help keep Connecticut the best place in the country to live.
|It’s time to “Come Home America” and our home is Connecticut..
The time has come for true Conservatives and like-minded Independents to secede from their respective parties and join the Conservative Party of Connecticut.The present political establishment in Washington has consistently failed to hold to the principles of our Founding Fathers and can no longer be considered a legitimate representative of traditional American conservative values. This failure is the result of what has become a politically incestuous society dominated by the two major political parties, staff, and those who lobby.The Mission of the Conservative Party is to promote and protect individual rights and freedoms set forth in the U.S. Constitution and to limit the scope of Federal government authority and spending. We believe that the only way to achieve success in our mission is to return political activity to the local scene. <Read more here>
