Author & Entrepreneur Israel Vicente

The December 8 meeting provides a chance for enjoyable conversation and reflection among members and friends of the Montclair Republican Club, with a presentation by Mr. Israel Vicente as a central point of reference. Vicente, a technology entrepreneur, author, and New Jersey resident, will discuss his book For the People – Time to Take Our Country Back.

Israel, founder of GCS, a successful global IT consulting firm, is an avid reader, world traveler, and researcher. In his role as CEO of GCS, Israel has had the opportunity to speak to many people of all income levels throughout the U.S. and abroad, giving him a firsthand perspective of their experiences, successes, and hardships.

In 2013, he decided to dedicate any spare time he could find to becoming a published author. On long-distance flights to visit with customers, he replaced the previously customary glass or two of wine with a pen and a notebook. In 2014, he published two well-received nonfiction books, The Courage to Be Different and Divergent Lives.

Israel has always been interested in politics and how it impacts the lives of people everywhere. The lead-up to the 2016 presidential contest served as inspiration for his third book, For the PeopleTime to Take Our Country Back! He lives in New Jersey with his wife and children.

Montclair Republican Committee Endorses Donald Trump

Dear Montclair Republican,

The Montclair Republican County Committee voted to endorse Donald Trump and the entire Republican line this election.  We encourage you to vote Republican.

Three reasons to vote Republican:

Health Care

Our health care system, while it could be the best in the world, is being hogtied by Democrats.  Their objective is socialized medicine (they call it public option or single payer to confuse people).  They knew Obamacare was flawed.  Their next step is to declare Obamacare a failure and say that we must replace it with socialized medicine.  Hillary Clinton was an early architect of this plan.

Taxes

Regardless of what Hillary Clinton says, she will increase the size of government by increasing both taxes and spending.  Somehow, the tax-the-rich schemes always end up taxing the middle class.

Regulations

The Democrats have continually advocated and enacted into law more and more unreasonable regulations that hamper economic growth and are a major burden on business and ordinary citizens, preventing economic growth.

There are many more reasons to vote Republican, but these three alone should be persuasive.

Guiding Principles

Montclair Republicans stand for limited government, personal liberty/responsibility, and economic opportunity.  Our core values align with those of the Republican Party in 2016.

It Will Be a Night To Remember: August 6, 8 pm: Come Watch the Republican Presidential Candidate Debate

AldrinWhere were you on July 20, 1969? Mark your calendar & make Thursday, August 6 – the first Republican 2016 Presidential Candidate debate – another night to remember.

Most Americans of a certain age — and especially, Montclairians — remember very well where they were 46 years ago tonight — July 20, 1969. The first moon landing in history — that of the U.S. space program’s Apollo 11 craft with our hometown hero Buzz Aldrin aboard —  was a testament to America’s ‘Right Stuff.’

Locally, many still breathe with the inspiration of the 1969 moon landing and Buzz Aldrin. But, Montclair and friends…do we have ignition?

The control of the American Experiment is to be placed in a new chief executive’s hands in sixteen months, but its power lies with you. Come out to Montclair Republican Club’s sociable and friendly Debate-Watching Party on August 6, featuring Republican Party candidates, in order to start gathering information, discerning distinctions, and making your best decision on November 8, 2016: Town Pub of Bloomfield, 8 pm, a la carte menu. RSVP to montclairrepublicans@gmail.com. It will be a night to remember: let’s get fired up about our republic.

Bring your family’s young adults to this awesome lesson in American and comparative history. Sign up now: unlike Aldrin’s, and perhaps Washington’s perspectives, space for this event is limited ;).

…and since the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the Republican model of Government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally staked, on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.
