"United We Can Win--Building Passion for Republican Principles that Unite Us"

Too many times as Republicans, we focus on what divides us and fail to appreciate the positive vision and principles that unite us. This presentation shares the exciting results of an e-mail survey with a sample of members from the California Republican Party. With a contagious blend of inspiration, tasteful humor and patriotic inspiration, you will explore the six principles that most unite us as Republicans. Reclaiming the optimism advantage will not come from another dose of Pollyanna thinking. It will come from Republicans facing the challenge of re-earning the confidence and commitment of voters for an agenda and principles that Republicans and fellow Americans can get excited about!

"America's Choice-Optimism or Learned Helplessness"

Both Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama came to the Presidency in a time of economic distress. One man chose to believe in the American people and unleashed the power and potential of American capitalism that ushered in over twenty years of prosperity and pride. The other came to power promising hope and change, but his optimism was based on a belief in the government's ability to meet the needs of Americans. By electing President Donald Trump, America has chosen to return to the Reagan optimism that transformed a decade and impacted the future for generations to come. Dr. Paulson speaks with passion and insight on how to rekindle and save the American Dream.

"Reclaiming the American Dream"

Belief in the American Dream is at the heart of our pioneering and practical culture, but there are still some in our country who feel the 'real' America is an unfair, oppressive place, without opportunity and without hope. Fortunately, Americans of all races prove them wrong every day. America is still the land of opportunity, and the Republican Party is the party of individual opportunity. The party is committed to sustaining every citizen's natural rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Come celebrate how individuals, unencumbered by government controls and empowered by freedoms and opportunity, can still make their lawful dreams a reality, limited only by his or her determination and natural abilities. Explore what must be done to save the optimism and sense of unlimited possibility that has been one of the hallmarks of America. If the dream dies, envy and dependence are the result. Every generation must protect and teach the dream or America will die. Help save the dream for this generation!

"The Kind of Leaders Republicans Need"

As we look to leaders who can meet the challenge of change while holding firm to the principles that we treasure, there are certain leadership qualities that ought to be evident. The best leaders make an emotional connection to the people and use that connection to drive a positive vision for the future. They have the character and the core Republican values that provide an invaluable compass in a challenging and changing world. They have the confidence to get the best people around them and have the wisdom to listen to them before making decisions. They are known for using financially tight controls where they can while being willing to invest resources where the government is needed. The best leaders are also master bridge builders who can bridge across the political divide to listen and work with even people they disagree with. And, most important, great leaders inspire action and optimism in the people they lead. They appeal to our best hopes, not our worst fears. This program takes a thoughtful and, at times, humorous look at political leadership and how to make it work for all of us.

"What We Can Still Learn From Lincoln"

Lincoln is often rated as America's favorite and most respected President. Lincoln's ability to learn from and persevere in the face of failure, his resolve in the face of sustained conflict, and his breadth of insight about leadership and life are still relevant to America. You'll hear ten of Lincoln's best quotes and explore how he can still speak to us today. This engaging and entertaining program on America's most loved President is one you won't want to miss.

Here's what others have said...

"Even though it was pouring when we left, not a drop fell on me -- I was three feet off the ground, and felt sunshine all around me from your warmth and the "gossip" about you. "Best program we ever had" was the most frequently heard. If every Democrat could hear your sunny message, they would immediately re-register Republican. I will encourage all to partake of your weekly wisdom. ... Thank you for being there, you are amazing and delightful and touchingly truthful."
--Sheila Bryan. Past National Issues Chairman for the Calif. Fed. of Rep. Women, So. Div. National Issues, Opposition Research Chairman for Riv. Co. and Program Chairman for San Gorgonio Pass Republican Women

"Thank you Dr Paulson for a most inspiring evening. Your topic focusing on what we Republicans stand for, opposed to what divides us, was most timely, encouraging, and needed. While your presence drew our largest crowd ever, it is a shame every one of our 215 members were not there. We all look forward to seeing you again."
--Terry P. Kay, Past President, Sun City Palm Desert Republicans

"You were great! I've spent many meetings watching the audience. You had them sitting on the edges of their chairs, begging for more. Even the handouts prove your success. Normally, about a third of the group take them. This time, out of 70 handouts, there were only 4 left ... and one of them was mine!"
--Linda Owens, Woodland Hills Republican Women Federated

"Thank you for the stimulating talk you gave at the luncheon.... We all get bogged down at times with our political activities, so it was wonderful to be inspired and motivated to make change work and move forward with our programs and responsibilities."
-- Virginia Knowles, Los Angeles County Federation of Republican Women

"We were so thrilled that you were able to come and speak for us. Thank you for making the drive and sharing your talent and enthusiasm with us. I have already received much positive feedback and the meeting will stand out as a highlight this year. What an entertaining, yet profoundly challenging, presentation. You touched on our biggest challenge as Republicans and that is effective communication of our message. I remember reading a column by Peggy Noonan in which she essentially said that our task was more difficult because the liberals get to promise candy and sweets and we must tell folks why the candy is not good for them -- and the worst part, why we are going to put them on a diet! It is far more complicated to speak of visions and goals that represent delayed gratification; that can only be attained with sacrifice and effort. But the rewards are so great and our civilization will only be saved if we continue to invest rather than constantly demand and take. Character does count on a national as well as personal level. We just have such a tough time explaining this without sounding judgmental or preachy. You are the perfect spokesperson for conveying how to best approach this challenge we face."
--Karen Lugo, Past VP of Colima/Hacienda Republican Women Federated

"After the meeting, I stood at the door and spoke to people as they departed. Every single one was smiling and up! Your wise words gave us a clear path to follow as we step off into the future. It was great!"
-- Verna Heckman, San Pedro Republican Women Federated
