Congratulations to Donald Trump. What Now?
The People have spoken.
For all those that can’t believe a billionaire celebrity candidate has won, remember that he is only running for president, not dictator. We seem to be overly concerned about what any presidential candidate can do once in office. In 2008, we were horrified at what Obama would do. BUT he could NOT have passed OabmaCare, handcuffed our banking system and destroyed our economy with crushing overregulation without the consent of Congress (which was firmly in Democrat control for the first two years of his term).
So Trump will win or Hillary will win. The question becomes, would they sign legislation sent to them from Congress that will unleash the power of the American free enterprise system and create jobs and opportunity for all?
I’m pretty sure Trump would. He would listen to his fellow business leaders who clearly know that overbearing federal regulations and high taxes are hurting small business and job creation.
Would Hillary sign this legislation also? If she learned anything from Bill Clinton, it is that cooperating with a Republican congress can have huge benefits for the economy, the country and a president’s legacy. I remember Bill Clinton signing all kinds of legislation from workfare, to tax reform, to balancing the budget – all coming from Republicans in congress.
Remember that no matter who wins in November, the true fate of our country still lies in the hands of the House and Senate. Those campaigns around the country will be more important to the future of the conservative movement than the presidential race. Right now, conservative members of congress are fighting for control. Let’s get them some help this November.
I hope to see you on the campaign trail.

Conservative Society for Action
CSA is Guided by Some Simple but Profound Principles:
"I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size."
"I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom."
"My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them."
"It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or that have failed in their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden."
"I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is "needed" before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible."

New York Governor Declares His State Unfit for "Conservatives"
Tough we've know this for a long time, Andrew Cuomo has finally said what he would have denied. Listen to this short radio conversation he had about "conservatives". You might then understand that our fight for individual liberty in our own country is a serious battle that must be won.
CSA's Flanagan Interviewed about the IRS Tea Party Scandal:
As Obama and his Czars attack the small business community and belittle success & free enterprise, we think back to the founding principals that turned America into the envy of the World and the last stop for those seeking freedom everywhere. Consider the following:
By Thomas Paine
"I do not choose to be a common man,
It is my right to be uncommon … if I can,
I seek opportunity … not security.
I do not wish to be a kept citizen.
Humbled and dulled by having the
State look after me.
I want to take the calculated risk;
To dream and to build.
To fail and to succeed.
I refuse to barter incentive for a dole;
I prefer the challenges of life
To the guaranteed existence;
The thrill of fulfillment
To the stale calm of Utopia.
I will not trade freedom for beneficence
Nor my dignity for a handout
I will never cower before any master
Nor bend to any threat.
It is my heritage to stand erect.
Proud and unafraid;
To think and act for myself,
To enjoy the benefit of my creations
And to face the world boldly and say:
This, with God’s help, I have done
All this is what it means
To be an Entrepreneur.”
