On a beautiful Saturday morning, on November 14, 2020, seven suburban women and one man began their hopeful trek from Chester County to Washington, DC. Some of them were meeting each other for the first time, now allied by a common goal – to show their love for President Donald Trump and let their voices be heard above the false narratives, questionable election practices, and intimidation from the Left.
Filling two cars, the eight patriots discussed the positive impact that President Trump has had on our economy, prison reform, deregulation, revitalized military, and renegotiation of bad international trade deals. They shared how they felt their voices had been silenced at work, in public places, on social media, and by the “fake news” media. It was cathartic to be able to speak out loud about how much they appreciated this great man.
Exiting their cars at the train station in Maryland, most of the group felt compelled to hide their MAGA hats, flags and banners. Some had a lingering fear of confrontation with “haters.”
Let Freedom Ring
They continued their conversation on the train, arriving at the Freedom Plaza station. As they ascended the escalator to Pennsylvania Avenue, they felt the warmth of the sun and a growing excitement at seeing the sea of red hats, waving flags, and broad smiles of their fellow American Patriots. No longer fearful, the Chester County Eight put on their MAGA hats, unfolded their Trump/Pence flags and banners and joined the peaceful, joyful crowd moving towards Freedom Plaza.
Along the way, the band of eight met travelers from California, Georgia, Ohio, Nevada and many other states representing diverse cultures, religious affiliations, and ethnicities. The dedication and passion that empowered so many to come from all parts of the country was impressive. All of this for President Donald Trump. The crowd would alternate between singing the national anthem and chanting “Stop the Steal” and “Trump, Trump, Trump.” At Freedom Plaza they were inspired by the multiple speakers who demanded investigations and recounts in the states that had questionable behaviors and election results. They detailed the many successes the Trump Administration. The list was long.
Love Overshadows Hate
As the crowd began the 30-minute walk to the Supreme Court, the group from Chester County was struck by the endless ocean of Trump supporters climbing the sloping street before them. Looking behind, they were equally in awe when the saw the massive crowd of Patriots behind them. They determined that, in fact, there were hundreds of thousands who came out to support our President and our Democracy – not “thousands” as the news media claimed.
Hate was met with love when the crowd of Trump supporters began chanting, “We love everyone. We love everyone,” to a sole agitator, dressed in black, who spewed hate from a megaphone.
The positive feelings of hope, fellowship and support from the massive crowd was uplifting. This was further proof that when it comes to Trump supporters – “Love lives here.” Their united energy seemed to create a forcefield which protected the Maga Marchers all the way to the Supreme Court grounds. Their spirit was impenetrable, despite more than 4 years of attacks, lies, threats, and hate from the Left and their media puppets.
The Silenced Majority – No More
The team from Chester County joined the massive crowd gathered in front of the Supreme Court. They were there to protest the stolen election, the news media, and the censorship from the liberal cancel culture. They listened to Conservative voices uncensored by Big Tech and “Hate News.” They called for justice in an election marred with suspicion, fraud and cheating. They believed the stolen election was designed to erase Conservative voices and votes. They had had enough. “We the people” were reclaiming their voice.
When the speakers were finished, the crowd made their way back to Freedom Plaza and their means of transportation. A few Trump supporters who separated from the pack down a side street, were harassed and attacked by the radical left and Antifa thugs. Dozens of police vehicles made their way to quickly intercede.
The group from Chester County returned to the train station unscathed. Empowered by the day, the Chester County Eight now wore their Trump Hats and buttons on the train ride back. They no longer felt silenced, at least for that day.
Their collective hope was that their spoken truths would not fall on deaf ears. We all know how that turned out.
The “Hate News” media and certain Left-wing politicians called this large gathering of good-hearted Conservatives some pretty awful things, not worth repeating.
Antifa and radical agitators (let’s call them criminals) came out after dark to attack again. The media embraced them.
Yet, just as love lives in the heart of these patriots, so does hope – to keep America great!
The Family Policy Alliance needs our help to save girls sports.
The ACLU wants to enable biological boys to compete in girls sports. Once a champion of girls’ sports – now the ACLU wants to turn boys into girls’ sports champions by using a federal law, Title IX. The law was enacted to prevent discrimination against women and girls in educational opportunities, including in school sports. It has helped ensure that girls are not kept on the sidelines. Historically, Title IX has been used — by the ACLU itself — to advance opportunities for girls and women. But now, the ACLU, has filed a lawsuit to exploit Title IX to let biological men steal those very opportunities from girls.
Why is allowing boys to play on girl's sports teams unfair to girls? It is unfair because biological boys have numerous physiological advantages that make it hard or even impossible for female athletes to compete against them. Males have greater bone density, muscle mass, and larger hearts and cardiovascular capacity than girls. Even cross-sex hormones don't lessen a biological boys physiological advantage over girls.
In contrast to the ACLU claims, the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights recently ruled that a policy allowing boys to compete on girls’ teams violates Title IX. The Department’s reasoning is that if we allow biological boys on girls’ sports teams, we are denying girls the opportunity to compete fairly because the boys have a biological advantage that can take away winning spots in competitions and scholarships from girls.

1. Republicans fight for a healthy education budget in PA and Chester County
Your Republican Pennsylvania State Representatives diligently represented your voice in demanding stronger financial support of education programs and schools. For the last 5 years, Pennsylvania and Chester County Representatives have pushed for a higher education budget, despite Governor Tom Wolf not signing the PA budget for 3 out of those 5 years.
Education is a priority to every family and individual in Chester County. Our Republican elected officials recognized that highly ranked school districts not only benefit Chester County students, but also benefits homeowners, residents, and businesses in Chester County.
2. Thanks to Republicans, families can choose the best school for their child(ren) in Chester County.
Chester County parents and legal guardians want to ensure that their child(ren) have the best education available. Thanks to Republican elected officials, they continue to have this choice. School choice means that families can determine the best educational environment for their children regardless of the location of their home school district. This includes inter-district choice, Charter Schools, cyber-charter schools, educational tax credits, and opportunity scholarship tax credits.
Thanks to school choice and Republicans, some school districts in the Pennsylvania Commonwealth have made innovative curriculum changes to keep pace with school choice options and improve education for students. Sadly, many Democratic elected officials, don't support school choice in PA.
3. Pennsylvania's educational tax credits help to fund PA and Chester County school districts
Pennsylvania was the first state in the country to introduce a tax credit to businesses and corporations introduced by Republicans in 2001. Today, educational tax credits are available to eligible businesses contributing to a Scholarship Organization, an Educational Improvement Organization, and/or a Pre-Kindergarten Scholarship Organization.
Under the Educational improvement Tax Credit (EITC) and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC), businesses receive tax credits equal to 75 percent of their contribution, up to a maximum credit of $750,000 per taxable year. If PA and Chester County businesses agree to donate the same amount for two consecutive tax years, they see an increase to 90 percent of their contribution for both tax years.
In addition, with contributions to Pre-Kindergarten Scholarship Organizations, businesses may receive a tax credit equal to 100 percent of the first $10,000 contribution, and 90 percent for the remaining amount contributed up to a maximum credit of $200,000 annually.
For more information on these educational tax credit programs, please visit Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development website.
Voting Republican means voting for great education in PA
The choice is clear. Republicans are leading the charge to keep PA and Chester County education at the top of their priority list, as well as, the top of the school ranking lists.
