Patriot Heroes Needed!!

"Republican Party Elephant" logoImage via Wikipedia

At the end of this post is a list of Strong Conservative Candidates that I have managed to come up with so far. Men like Oklahoma Candidate for Governor Randy Brogdon, and Florida Senate Candidate Marco Rubio, and the founder of the Minutemen Chris Simcox in Arizona. I would like to build this into a fully searchable list from all 50 states, with candidates for US Congress, and Senate from every district, as well as, local & state races, such as Governor, State Legislature, Mayor, City Council, and County Assessor. Please help me build this list by commenting, so I can add them to the list!

It's going to take more than just a few protests to return America to it's former greatness, and restore the principles of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence. We have to roll up our sleeves and get our hands dirty! These folks have the Courage of their Convictions, and are willing to get into the frontlines of the battle, the least we can do is support them!

Let's get the Right people in, and the Wrong people out!
  1. Get a list of everyone who voted for Bush Bailout (TARP), Stimulus, Housing Bailout 2008, or Housing Bailout 2009. Including Congress, Senate, Governors who accepted the $$, and State Reps & Senators who voted to accept it.
  2. Find out when their seat is coming up for reelection.
  3. Register to Vote as a Republican(can't change the Party from the Inside, if you're on the outside! And you can't complain about the type of candidates they put forth if you don't vote in the Primaries!)
  4. Find a viable, fiscal conservative candidate, and put ALL of the Tea Party resources behind them.
  5. VOTE FOR THE CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE!

Tea Party Action Idea

I have been brainstorming some action ideas for the Tea Party Movement. I know pe.ople have been talking about a March on Washington, DC. Well, I think this is a great idea, but it needs to be organized in a manner similar to the Million Man March. The Nation of Islam planned it MONTHS in advance, and gathered up donations, and chartered buses to take people to the march.

I think that's what we need to do for the Tea Party Movement! We should plan a massive gathering in Washington, DC on April 15, 2010. We should meet, and use the We Surround Them ideaology of the Glenn Beck 9-12 Project. We should literally SURROUND them, and then March in as a whole, slowly tightening the loop, until we all meet in the middle at the Washington Monument Plaza!

The Tulsa Tea Party (www.tulsateaparty.org) is already starting to raise funds with an eye towards paying for the use of charter buses to take as many people as possible. If enough Tea Party Groups throughout the country will do likewise, we could converge on the Capitol with several million people, and make our message known!

I know that it is difficult to get so many people to travel, but that is why we should start raising funds now, to charter the buses. If the transportation is already provided, many people will get "on board!"

The Tax Day Tea Parties, that were held on April 15, 2009, were a great success, but that was not the end of it! The problems of overtaxation, and out of control Government spending, have not all just gone away, because we got together and shouted about it! The beauracracy that runs Washington is still there, grabbing power for themselves, and ignoring "We the People"! We have to keep the pressure on! Keep having Tea Parties, keep talking to people about it, remain vigilant, because that's what it is going to take!

Tulsa Flag Day Tea Party- The History of Flag Day


Flag Day is a Patriotic Holiday celebrated each year on June 14th. Other than that, most people don't have any idea what it is. In fact, most people forget that there even is such a day, until it's mentioned. So, let me take this opportunity the information I found on the History of Flag Day
From www.USFlag.org
The Fourth of July was traditionally celebrated as America's birthday, but the idea of an annual day specifically celebrating the Flag is believed to have first originated in 1885. BJ Cigrand, a schoolteacher, arranged for the pupils in the Fredonia, Wisconsin Public School, District 6, to observe June 14 (the 108th anniversary of the official adoption of The Stars and Stripes) as 'Flag Birthday'. In numerous magazines and newspaper articles and public addresses over the following years, Cigrand continued to enthusiastically advocate the observance of June 14 as 'Flag Birthday', or 'Flag Day'.

On June 14, 1889, George Balch, a kindergarten teacher in New York City, planned appropriate ceremonies for the children of his school, and his idea of observing Flag Day was later adopted by the State Board of Education of New York. On June 14, 1891, the Betsy Ross House in Philadelphia held a Flag Day celebration, and on June 14 of the following year, the New York Society of the Sons of the Revolution, celebrated Flag Day.

Following the suggestion of Colonel J Granville Leach (at the time historian of the Pennsylvania Society of the Sons of the Revolution), the Pennsylvania Society of Colonial Dames of America on April 25, 1893 adopted a resolution requesting the mayor of Philadelphia and all others in authority and all private citizens to display the Flag on June 14th. Leach went on to recommend that thereafter the day be known as 'Flag Day', and on that day, school children be assembled for appropriate exercises, with each child being given a small Flag.

Two weeks later on May 8th, the Board of Managers of the Pennsylvania Society of Sons of the Revolution unanimously endorsed the action of the Pennsylvania Society of Colonial Dames. As a result of the resolution, Dr. Edward Brooks, then Superintendent of Public Schools of Philadelphia, directed that Flag Day exercises be held on June 14, 1893 in Independence Square. School children were assembled, each carrying a small Flag, and patriotic songs were sung and addresses delivered.

In 1894, the governor of New York directed that on June 14 the Flag be displayed on all public buildings. With BJ Cigrand and Leroy Van Horn as the moving spirits, the Illinois organization, known as the American Flag Day Association, was organized for the purpose of promoting the holding of Flag Day exercises. On June 14th, 1894, under the auspices of this association, the first general public school children's celebration of Flag Day in Chicago was held in Douglas, Garfield, Humboldt, Lincoln, and Washington Parks, with more than 300,000 children participating.

Adults, too, participated in patriotic programs. Franklin K. Lane, Secretary of the Interior, delivered a 1914 Flag Day address in which he repeated words he said the flag had spoken to him that morning: "I am what you make me; nothing more. I swing before your eyes as a bright gleam of color, a symbol of yourself."

Inspired by these three decades of state and local celebrations, Flag Day - the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777 - was officially established by the Proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson on May 30th, 1916. While Flag Day was celebrated in various communities for years after Wilson's proclamation, it was not until August 3rd, 1949, that President Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14th of each year asNational Flag Day.


This year, Flag Day is going to be a little different in Tulsa! On June 13th, (I know, that's the day before Flag Day, but Flag Day is on Sunday) the Tulsa Tea Party will be holding a Flag Day Tea Party Rally at Johnson Park, 61st & Riverside, from 3pm-5pm. Entertainment, Patriotic Speeches, Costume & Sign making contests, and much more!

So bring the family, and clebrate the symbol of American Freedom, that just seeing it waving over that old fort made Francis Scott Key's heart fill with such pride, that he penned the, now famous, words of our National Anthem....
Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Strong Conservative Candidates for Office

I am trying to compile a list of Strong Conservative candidates running for office throughout the country. I have added some that I know about to the Widget above.

If you know of any, please leave the info in the comments, including their website, and the name of their opponent for the office they are running for. If they are running against a RINO, or "Mushy Moderate", please add that in the comments as well!
I will add those to the survey on this page!


We need to put the support of the Tea Party behind as many Strong Conservative Candidates as we can.

I found some good links for tracking the Conservative rating of incumbents. Perhaps you can find some more links like these for me to add to this post!

Interesting statistics on US Senators and Representatives, that I found at www.govtrack.us

Statistics on State Legisators at The Oklahoma Constitution

Based on these statistics, we get a good idea of which currently sitting candidates fit the Tea Party ideals.

The New Guy and the Old Guard

There is a "new face" on the Tulsa political scene, who is challenging the "status quo", and getting shredded for his efforts. Clay Clark, a successful small business owner, and the Oklahoma SBA Entrepreneur in 2007, has thrown his hat into the race for Tulsa Mayor. He is not a career politician, nor does he want to be. He told me

"I am only running for 1 term, I'm not going to be in there trying to get reelected. I'm going in to fix the problems with our streets, and the lack of Police on our streets."


Clay is a breath of fresh air in the "old boys club" of politics as usual, here in Tulsa. Most of the establishment within the Republican Party, have taken great pains, to either marginalize him as a "goofball", (one even introduced him as DJ Jazzy Clay at a GOP Event), or to attack him for "not understanding" the reasons that Tulsa County is the most taxed county in the state, despite also being the most Republican County in the state! The very party that claims to be about conservative values, like lower taxes and reduced Government spending, is the ones attacking anyone who proposes doing those things! Oh, they come out to the Tea Party Rallies, and say the right things, but behind closed doors, they attack those who actually try to make a stand, like Senator Coburn, State Senator Brogdon, and County Tax Assessor Ken Yazel! These great men, who defend our Constitution, also challenge the hold that these others have on power and money. When someone actually propose a real restoration of power to the people, and real tax reform, and tighter control on Governmental spending, they are shouted down, ridiculed, or have their character attacked.

It's despicable, and makes me want to sever my ties with the GOP!

However, if we are going to effect REAL change, we need to have the name recognition of the GOP, so I propose that EVERYONE who is a liberty loving, TEA PARTY going, American Patriot, go register as a Republican, show up at EVERY party meeting and Club, VOTE in the primaries, and make them take us seriously!

No matter what the GOP may say, they DO NOT know what is best for us, or the Party. We the People, need to let them know that WE are in charge now!

AND I ASK AGAIN....

What is Directive 51?

From Wikipedia:

The National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive (National Security Presidential Directive NSPD 51/Homeland Security Presidential Directive HSPD-20, sometimes called simply "Executive Directive 51" for short), created and signed by United States President George W. Bush on May 4, 2007, is a Presidential Directive which claims power to execute procedures for continuity of the federal government in the event of a "catastrophic emergency". Such an emergency is construed as "any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions." [1]

Let's examine this. First of all, this is a "Presidential Directive"

Presidential directives are a form of executive order issued by the President of the United States with the advice and consent of the National Security Council. As a form of executive order, a presidential directive has the "full force and effect of law.

This means that the President of the United States, is Legislating, from the Oval Office. This is a violation of the enumerated powers of the Executive branch as listed in the Constitution. This also circumvents the Legislative branch, (Congress) in making laws. This is very troublesome if you believe in the Constitution, and the Rights granted by it to the people!

Second, the language of the order allows for these powers to be implemented in any emergency "regardless of location" (does that mean outside of our borders?) that results in "extraordinary levels" of casualties, damage. or disruption (who defines "extraordinary levels"?) that severely affect the poplulation, infrastructure, environment, economy (a recession could cause this to be implemented!?), or Government functions(so, any protest that inconveniences the Gov?).

This "Presidential Directive" goes on to state,

when the president considers an emergency to have occurred, an "Enduring Constitutional Government" comprising "a cooperative effort among the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the Federal Government, coordinated by the President," will take the place of the nation's regular government, presumably without the oversight of Congress.

Hmmmmm....so, if the President considers an emergency to have occurred, he can implement a NEW Constitution that basically by-passes Congress?

Also, The directive, created by the president, claims that the president has the power to declare a catastrophic emergency. It does not specify who has the power to declare the emergency over!

Has President Bush unknowingly, (or knowingly) put into place the tools for a future President to seize control of the Federal Government, and basically declare them self, Dictator?

Worse yet,

The signing of this Directive was generally not covered by the mainstream U.S. media or discussed by the U.S. Congress. While similar executive security directives have been issued by previous presidents, with their texts kept secret, this is the first to be made public in part. It is unclear how the National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive will reconcile with the National Emergencies Act, a U.S. federal law passed in 1976, which gives Congress oversight over presidential emergency powers during such emergencies. The National Emergencies Act is not mentioned in the text of the National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive.

So, this "Presidential Directive" countermands federal law passed in 1976, and the MSM, has been ignoring it, and not reported, and Congress, for the most part, has just laid down!!

So far, only a few members of Congress have even bothered to raise any concerns! It seems that only Congressman DeFazio, a Democrat, and a couple of others, have bothered to question the ramifications of this directive, and asked to see the Classified parts of the directive! So far, he has been rebuffed!

After receiving concerned communications from constituents, in July 2007 U.S. Representative and Homeland Security Committee member Peter DeFazio made an official request to examine the classified Continuity Annexes described above in a secure "bubbleroom" in the United States Capitol, but his request was denied by the White House, which cited "national security concerns."[8] This was the first time DeFazio has been denied access to documents. He was quoted as saying, "We're talking about the continuity of the government of the United States of America...I would think that would be relevant to any member of Congress, let alone a member of the Homeland Security Committee."[8] After this denial, DeFazio joined with two colleagues (Bennie Thompson, chairman of the committee; and Chris Carney, chairman of the Homeland Security oversight subcommittee) in a renewed effort to gain access to the documents.

This is alarming to me! That not only did President Bush issue this order, but seemingly noone, has even bothered to question it! If I had not been researching into the rex 84 FEMA plans, I never would have heard of this! We need to get the word out on this, and get it stricken from the laws, before it is used, and abused to end the last vestiges of Freedom that America has left!

As Thomas Paine wrote in December of 1776,

THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right (not only to TAX) but "to BIND us in ALL CASES WHATSOEVER" and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the expression is impious; for so unlimited a power can belong only to God.


Well, it's not Britain trying to take our Freedoms, and enslave us, this time, but our own Federal Government, whom the Constitution was written to protect us from, that are in the process of circumventing, and making impotent, that very Constitution! If we do not wake up, and pay attention, one day we'll wake up, and it will be too late! It is time to do something about the runaway Government, and not keep burying our heads, and saying " all politicians are crooked, what can we do about it?" We CAN and MUST change the parties, and the processes, and remove the "career politicians" before they make the "de facto" oligarchy we have now, into an official one! Everyone needs to take an active role, get involved in your local party, find out who these people are, and what they believe in and if you don't like it, replace them with someone who is committed to the ideals of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. If we don't do it now, our hands will be forced.

“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. ... You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” Winston Churchill

Should the Government be Doing More?

For those who believe that our Federal Government should be doing MORE to help the poor and underprivileged in America, I have compiled a list of demands to be presented to the President, and Congress, outlining what the Government can do...


We ask that the government undertake the obligation above all of providing citizens with adequate opportunities for employment and earning a living.

The activities of the individual must not be allowed to clash with the interests of the community, but must take place within its confines and for the good of all. Therefore, we demand:...an end to the power of the financial interests.

We demand profit sharing in big business.

We demand a broad extension of care for the aged.

We demand...the greatest possible consideration of small business in the purchases of the national, state and municipal governments.

In order to make possible to every capable and industrious [citizen] the attainment of higher education and thus the achievement of a post of leadership, the government must provide an all-around enlargement of our entire system of public education...We demand the education at government expense of gifted children of poor parents...

The government must undertake the improvement of public health -- by the greatest possible support for all clubs concerned with the physical education of youth.

[We] combat the...materialistic spirit within and without us, and are convinced that a permanent recovery of our people can only proceed from within on the foundation of The Common Good Before the Individual Good .


Now, before you go and start passing this around as MY idea, I think I should reveal the source of this list. This information came from the Nazi party platform adopted at Munich, February 24, 1920;Der Nationalsozialismus Dokumente 1933-1945, edited by Walther Hofer, Frankfurt am Main: Fischer Bucherei, 1957, pp. 29-31.


Now, we have all seen what happens when these ideas are take to their final conclusion. It turns into a class warfare, pitting the "poor" against the "rich" with no regard for how either of the two got into their situations.

I, for one, do not believe that the "rich" should be hated for being rich. Most have worked hard, and sacrificed many things in their lives to be successful, and deserve to enjoy the "fruits of their labor". Most poor people have taken the easy way out, not furthered their education, not worked hard, and are in the situation they are in, because they don't have any personal drive, and are waiting for someone to take care of them. Instead of punishing success and achievement, and rewarding laziness and failure, doesn't it make more sense to reward those who strive to better themselves, and to punish those who want to live of of others? We need to reform our welfare system, and make it impossible for someone to sit at home and live off of others. If a personis receiving Gov assistance, they MUST be made to either attend job training, or be enrolled in a work program. If the welfare recipient is recalcitrant, their benefits must be removed.

Having more than someone else is the result of Excellence, not theft. and having less is not because you were stolen from. Work is rewarded, sloth is punished! That is the moral and truly compassionate way.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. TEACH a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime!

If you believe that I am right, please pass this on to others. Tweet it, Share it, and comment on it!

Don't just complain about how unfair the world is, and how badly our government needs to change, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!

And I Ask Again....

Wrong People OUT! RIGHT People In!

San Francisco Tea Party on April Fools Day - 15Image by Steve Rhodes via Flickr

Everyday I talk to someone who is fed up with the "government". But, nobody seems to have any idea what to do about it, other than "throw the bums out!" Well, that's a good place to start, but HOW do we go about doing that? Well, I have an idea.

  1. Get a list of everyone who voted for Bush Bailout (TARP), Stimulus, Housing Bailout 2008, or Housing Bailout 2009. Including Congress, Senate, Governors who accepted the $$, and State Reps & Senators who voted to accept it.
  2. Find out when their seat is coming up for reelection.
  3. Register to Vote as a Republican(can't change the Party from the Inside, if you're on the outside! And you can't complain about the type of candidates they put forth if you don't vote in the Primaries!)
  4. Find a viable, fiscal conservative candidate, and put ALL of the Tea Party resources behind them.
  5. VOTE FOR THE CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE!
This needs to be done in EVERY DISTRICT IN THE COUNTRY! If the Tea Party Movement wants to actually have an effect, we MUST seek out candidates, instead of railing against "politicians"! There are candidates out there who do have ethics, morals, and a love for the Constitution, capitalism, and the American Dream! Find them! Find the "everyman" who has been inspired by the Tea Party Movement to run for office! Find the business owner, or minister, or construction worker, who has the Courage of Their Convictions, and is fed up with the guy we have in office now, and INVITE them to speak at a Tea Party Rally, or meeting! Have them set up booths to give out information, and meet the people. Give them links on your websites (or even WHOLE PAGES). Don't listen to the Party, and just take whichever candidate they want to cram down your throat! Make the Party listen, and run the person that you really want! It is time to step up, and take back control of our country!

Here are some links to the votes on the Bush Bailout(TARP), Stimulus, Housing Bailout 2008, and Housing Bailout 2009

Is Your Congressman Representing YOU with Their Vote?
DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!

Socialism, Fascism or Capitalism?

zooming in on the collectivist quadrantImage by neolibertariandotcom via Flickr

Which method of Government, and Society, would you prefer to live in? Let me define them for you.

  • socialism: "a theory or system of social organization which advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means or production, capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole"
  • fascism: "A governmental system with strong centralized power, permitting no opposition or criticism, controlling all affairs of the nation (industrial, commercial, etc.)"
  • capitalism : the social system in which all property is privately owned, and the government's function is restricted to the protection of individual rights.
As we can see, both Fascism and Socialism, favor the whole, over the individual. Centralizing power, and controlling the means of living. These are both versions of statism( forms of government in which the government is given complete or extensive control over the lives of its citizens.) Basically, Fascism allows individuals to "own" property, while telling them what they can, or cannot do with it, while Socialism puts ALL ownership under the government. Either way, the individual owner has no right to determine his own destiny. Choices in self-destination are limited to "do what the Government tells you" or "suffer the consequences".

There is no difference in principle between the fascists and the socialists, consider the following revealing quotations from various infamous Nazis and other fascists:

We ask that the government undertake the obligation above all of providing citizens with adequate opportunities for employment and earning a living.

The activities of the individual must not be allowed to clash with the interests of the community, but must take place within its confines and for the good of all. Therefore, we demand:...an end to the power of the financial interests.

We demand profit sharing in big business.

We demand a broad extension of care for the aged.

We demand...the greatest possible consideration of small business in the purchases of the national, state and municipal governments.

(Nazi party platform adopted at Munich, February 24, 1920;Der Nationalsozialismus Dokumente 1933-1945, edited by Walther Hofer, Frankfurt am Main: Fischer Bucherei, 1957, pp. 29-31).


Now, based on that, which do you think we are in the process of becoming? Or does it even matter? They are two sides of the same coin, and either way, are antithetical to the very ideals and principles that America was founded on! They demand that the entrepreneurial spirit of America give way to the collective.

We MUST NOT allow the failed policies of the fascism and socialism to take over our nation!
Stand UP! Pull your head out of the sand! Cry out against Entitlenments, and the Welfare state!
Refuse Government handouts, and "bait and switch" tax cuts for the poor, which penalize the people who produce, and give their wealth to those who won't work for their own betterment!

How Much Longer Does A Free America Have?

Every day, I come across new posts about Bills being proposed in Congress that basically strip away our Constitutionally guaranteed rights. I recently posted "Are you a Domestic Terrorist?" about the memos that have been coming out from various Government Agencies and think tanks, in which they label and define what they consider to be "dangerous, Right-wing extremism". This morning when I logged on, I came face to face with this

House Bill Aims to Strip “Rightwing Extremists” of Second Amendment Right
Rep Peter King of NY(D) has sponsored a bill "Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009".

That sounds like a great idea, doesn't it? Let's make it illegal to sell guns and explosives to terrorists! THAT will stop them! The only problem with that, is the fact that,

  1. We DON"T KNOW who the terrorists are!
  2. How many terrorists do you think buy their firearms and explosives at the local gun store, where they have to show ID, and go through a background check?
  3. It is ALREADY illegal to sell weapons to known criminals.
This Bill, if it becomes a Law, is aimed squarely at taking away the 2nd Amendment rights of Americans, who disagree with the Federal Government. The language has been left open to interpretation of who a "Dangerous Terrorist" is. We have already seen who the Department of Homeland Security is defining as a terrorist, and now we see how they are going to disarm the people. If you disagree with the Federal Government on taxes, abortion, euthanasia, "Gay Rights", socialized medicine, welfare, or the like, you can be branded a potentially dangerous terrorist, and they can forbid you to buy guns. This will automatically cause more "black market" gun sellers to start popping up, as otherwise law-abiding citizens try to exercise their 2nd Amendment Rights.

We are at a crossroads in the history of our nation. Never have our Constitutional Rights come under this many attacks, from so many directions! The conservatives in this country must UNITE NOW! Or we will have no opportunity to stop our nation from being taken over from the inside by our enemies! What are YOU doing to fight this? Quit screaming at your TV and Radio, and get involved! Write your Congressman and Senator, join a Political Activist group, run for local office, DO SOMETHING!

And again I ask,
Do YOU have the Courage of Your Convictions?

****So, how many did you answer yes to??

According to this report, practically EVERYONE is a Domestic Terrorist/ Violent Militia Member. War has been declared on the American People.

Coupled with the DHS Right Wing Extremism Report, this is the beginning of a Leftwing war on patriotism, freedom, and liberty. The socialists who control the media, education, and finance in America, are starting the process of painting everyone associated with conservatism, like the Tea Party, 9-12 project, 10th Ammendment Movement, and others, as Extremists on a par with Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, the Black Panthers, and Radical Jihadists! If they can make your neighbor believe you are a threat because you have a Ron Paul sticker on your vehicle, or read the Constitution, and Declaration of Independence, the path to the Civil Defense Army to become the next Gestapo, is wide open! The mainstream media will NOT report this, so we have to EDUCATE our friends, family and neighbors, about the true threat that is coming against those of us who love our country, and still believe we live in the Greatest Nation on Earth, and want to protect it from the creep of atheistic, globalist, humanist and socialist policies that our fathers, grandfathers, and greatgrandfathers fought and died to stop! Pass this along to EVERYONE you know! Please don't let this be another attack swept under the rug!

And I ask again,
"DO YOU HAVE THE COURAGE OF YOUR CONVICTIONS!?"


UPDATE:_________________________________
I forgot about one more memo that DEFINES Domestic Terrorists! The Domestic Extremist Lexicon.

My Personal Favorites!

  • alternative media

A term used to describe various information
sources that provide a forum for interpretations of events and
issues that differ radically from those presented in mass
media products and outlets.

--We disagree with the Mass Media! OH NO! We MUST be terrorists!--

  • anti-immigration extremism

A movement of groups or individuals who are
vehemently opposed to illegal immigration, particularly along
the U.S. southwest border with Mexico, and who have been
known to advocate or engage in criminal activity and plot acts
of violence and terrorism to advance their extremist goals.
They are highly critical of the U.S. Government’s response to
illegal immigration and oppose government programs that are
designed to extend “rights” to illegal aliens, such as issuing
driver’s licenses or national identification cards and providing
in-state tuition, medical benefits, or public education.

--We want the LAW to be enforced! How TERRORISTIC of us!--

  • direct action

Lawful or unlawful acts of civil disobedience
ranging from protests to property destruction or acts of
violence. This term is most often used by single-issue or
anarchist extremists to describe their activities.

--We exercise our 1st Amendment Rights! Oh the CARNAGE!--

  • rightwing extremism

A movement of rightwing groups or individuals
who can be broadly divided into those who are primarily
hate-oriented, and those who are mainly antigovernment and
reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority.
This term also may refer to rightwing extremist movements
that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to
abortion or immigration.

--The 10th Amendment is Terrorist, too!--

This is the kind of attack on the very fabric of American Liberty that I am talking about! The free exercise of your basic Bill of Rights Freedoms, makes you a potential Terrorist, and puts you under the watch of the Federal Government. If you DARE to speak out, you are deemed a dangerous subversive and listed on the Terrorist list. If "We the People" don't stand up now, it WILL be too late. Quit sitting there saying to yourself "I don't belong to any of THOSE groups!" and speak up for EVERYONE! Just because they haven't singled you out, doesn't make it ok to look the other way!

Benjamin Franklin said
"Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

I will not stand by and watch the liberties that my ancestors fought and died for be usurped by an out of control, bloated beast of a Federal Government, whose only concern is the extension of it's own powers, and comforts!

"These are the times that try men's souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it Now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict the more glorius the triumph."
Thomas Paine, The Crisis -- December 1776

The Tea Party Platform

***************************************UPDATE*************************************

Found this posting: http://www.aboldstepback.com/ which adds an even clearer statement to this!

*************************************************************************************

These are a basis of ideals from many sources, and my own beliefs, that i believe should be the basis of the Tea Party Movement, and thereby, the Platform of whatever party claims to be conservative! (This means YOU GOP!)

  • All forms of government must abide by the boundaries set forth in state and federal constitutions. The 10th Amendment gives the State Legislatures, ALL rights not explicitly granted to the Federal Government. The Sovereignty of the States MUST be upheld!
  • All pork and earmarks in the stimulus, omnibus bills, and bailouts must be reversed and repealed. The national budget must be balanced. Spending cuts, not increased taxation should be used to balance the budget. Excessive national debt is generational theft, and stealing the future of our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We MUST have a Balanced Budget Amendment!
  • Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of happiness implies personal responsibility, not handouts, free-enterprise and capitalism, not government controlled economies. Some people choose to be irresponsible (and of course some fall on hard times due to circumstances), but it is not the responsibility of the general public, vis-a-vis government intervention, to guarantee or bailout irresponsibility and failure. Private individuals and organizations give out of compassion and generosity, not compulsion through taxation, laws, and pork barrel projects. NO MORE SOCIALIST WELFARE STATE PROJECTS!
  • ALL elected and appointed officials are under the employment and serve at the will of We the People. As Abraham Lincoln said, “Government of the People, by the People and for the People”. Neither major political party is “clean” on these issues. Both Democrats and Republicans have taxed excessively and neither have restrained the hand of government effectively. There are certainly individual representatives who have been faithful to their constituents and to the Constitution. However, too many are engaged in protecting their congressional positions and turf. The majority of government officials have insulated themselves from the people they serve, and hold themselves above the law. We are simply saying, “No, you aren’t above the law”. Stay within the Constitution, or we will retire you at the next election. Term Limits for ALL elected officials! NO MORE CAREER POLITICIANS!
  • America's boarder's MUST be protected! The illegal immigration issue must be addressed. NO AMNESTY for illegal immigrants. No more social services for illegal immigrants. Medical treatment in case of emergency only, and then immediate deportation upon recovery. 6 month residency requirement before the child born of a non-US citizen gets automatic citizenship status. No more late term pregnancies crossing the border just to have a child and gain citizenship. NO MORE ANCHOR BABIES!
  • No more dependence on foreign oil! We must start drilling our own oil, and building new refineries, in addition to researching viable alternatives to oil.
  • The Federal Reserve System must be ended, and the entire tax code must be revamped. TAX OUR MONEY ONCE, AND THEN LEAVE US ALONE! No more taxing our wages, taxing our spending, taxing our saving, taxing our living, and taxing our dying!
  • Repeal ALL gun control laws that infringe on the freedoms of LAW ABIDING citizens to bear arms.
  • Put a halt to ALL legislation, that infringes on Freedom of Speech, including, but not limited to the "Fairness Doctrine"
This is the platform that I would like to see. It's not perfect, nor does it cover EVERY hot button issue. But, these are ideals that, I believe, MOST can agree on. I call now for the Republican Party to adopt this platform, or one much like it, now, and quit sitting on the fence!

The gauntlet has been thrown! I ask again,

DO YOU HAVE THE COURAGE OF YOUR CONVICTIONS?

Is the Tea Party Movement Off Course?

Eric Odom, one of the first Tea Party orgainizers, and founder of TaxDayTeaparty.com, sent a poignant email to all who have become a part of this "movement", calling for everyone to reexamine the direction the Tea Party has been going. In his letter, he states many of the things that have been going through my head since the first Tea Party rallies on Feb 27. 

In his email, Eric points out how the movement is unfortunately being moved away from the "grassroots", and how some have tried to control it "from the top down". 
"Since day one, I've strongly held the opinion that there should never be an "official" coalition or group to "oversee" the Tea Party effort. In fact, my belief is that doing so is impossible.

This caused problems between myself and a couple other national organizers because some of us shared vastly different opinions on how this movement should function.

Yes, we had a website. And yes, our website had sponsors (some of which, by the way, I was not very happy about), but I believe our sponsors did help us get an early nudge that we needed for mass attention, and in turn, mass collaboration.

But to me that should have been the end of it. In my view, our goal should have always been to simply facilitate an environment where local organizers could take the lead in this movement."
That being said, why should we continue to move forward? Is there a point to continuing the Tea Party efforts? YES! I believe we still have a very important role to play in saving our country. I believe that role has to be LOCALLY focused! So does Eric
"And as a side note, we at some point need to understand the VITAL importance of regaining control of our LOCAL government. I get that fighting Federal battles is sexy and everyone is doing it, but I also get that we're losing our asses in our own back yards!

So I cringe when I see people claiming to be "leaders" in this movement make statements about the Federal government and how that is where all of our energy needs to be spent.

Here's a memo for you... the current administration as well as the current congress are doing a fantastic job of defeating themselves. Not to say we just ignore them, but if we devote all of our time to the Federal fight yet lose our states... we do so at our own peril."

To other words, we cannot win this war focusing on the Federal Government. We MUST become involved in our local government, City, County, and State, in order to actually make any real impact! 

Most of us have no idea how to get involved. We're just average Americans, who work for a living, and barely remember our high school Government classes. We wouldn't even know where to begin! 

That's where someone like the American Majority comes in! They do training for grassroots activists, to teach us how to be more effective at inluencing our local government. Also, for those that are interested in possibly running for local office, they have Candidate Training Seminars, where they give you the road map to how to run a compaign. To find out more, go to http://aftertheteaparty.com/ and sign up for more info. Also, if you are in the Tulsa area, you can RSVP with Anne Patterson (918)991-9026 or anne@americanmajority.org for one of the local seminars

This is the first step in becoming active locally!  


Eric also suggests a plan of action that has a "two-pronged" approach.

"1) Federal

At the Federal level, we believe we're looking at three very significant fights coming up that our coalitions and networks should be heavily involved in. It is our opinion that these are fights that we can not only play a major role in, but we think we can actually influence the outcome.

--Socialized Healthcare
--Internet Taxation
--Union Card Check
(and a few other free-market related issues as well)

2) Local/State
Our goals at the local level are as follows (not limited to):
--Revitalize and strengthen the initiative & referandum process
--Heavily support and push through Term Limit legislation
--Identify candiates for school board, city council, county boards, state legislatures and state constitutional offices... and arm them with the tools and knowledge needed to succeed at running for office
--Develop a large scale fifty state network of independently operated grassroots networks/coalitions that can effectively combat extreme local taxation
--Identify potential leaders and groups within the movement and provide them with the tools needed to expand and become politically successful"
And all of this culminating with a national rally at the Capitol of all 50 states, on Tax Day of 2010. Let's all remember that the Tea Party started about Federal Government interference in the free market, and attempts to alter the very fabric from which this great nation was founded. Let's not lose site of the long term goals, which are to return America to it's roots as a Free Market Republic, and put a stop to the spread of the FAILED socialist agendas that the leftists are implemeting!

The Age of Insanity

Got this from a friend on facebook, hope you enjoy!


And it came to pass, in the Age of Insanity, that the people of the land called America, having lost their morals, their initiative, and their will to defend their liberties, chose as their Supreme Leader that person known as The One. He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning; but He hypnotized the people telling them, “I am sent to save you.. My lack of experience, my questionable ethics, my monstrous ego, and my association with evil doers are of no consequence. For I shall save you with Hope and Change. Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the land that he who preceded me is evil, that he has defiled the nation, and that all he has built must be destroyed.”

And the people rejoiced. For even though they knew not what The One would do, He had promised that it was good; and they believed.

And The One said, “We live in the greatest country in the world. Help me change everything about it!”

And the people said, “Hallelujah!!! Change is good!”

Then He said, “We are going to tax the rich fat-cats,”----

And the people said “Sock it to them!”

“---- And redistribute their wealth.”

And the people said, “Show us the money!”

And then He said, “Redistribution of wealth is good for everybody”

And Joe the plumber asked, "Are you kidding me? You’re going to steal my money and give it to the deadbeats???”

And The One ridiculed and taunted him, and Joe’s personal records were hacked and publicized.

One lone reporter asked, “Isn’t that Marxist policy?”

And she was banished from the kingdom!

Then a citizen asked, “With no foreign relations experience and having zero military experience or knowledge, how will you deal with radical terrorists?”

And The One said, “Simple. I shall sit with them and talk with them and show them how nice we really are; and they will forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!”

And the people said, “Hallelujah!!! We are safe at last, and we can beat our weapons into free cars for the people!”

Then The One said, “I shall give 95% of you lower taxes.”

And then some, lone voice said, “But 40% of us don’t pay ANY taxes.”

So The One said, “Then I shall give you some of the taxes the fat-cats pay!”

And the people said, “Hallelujah!!! Show us the money!”

Then The One said, “I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell your homes!”

And the people yawned and the slumping housing market collapsed.

And He said, "I shall mandate employer-funded health care for EVERY worker and raise the minimum wage. And I shall give every person unlimited health care and medicine and transportation to the clinics.”

And the people said, “Gim’me some of that!”

Then the One said, “I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas.”

And the people said, “Where’s my rebate check?”

Then The One said, “I shall bankrupt the coal industry and electricity rates will skyrocket!”

And the people said, “Coal is dirty, coal is evil, no more coal! But we don’t care for that part about higher electric rates.”

So The One said, “Not to worry. If your rebate isn’t enough to cover your expenses, we shall bail you out. Just sign up with ACORN and your troubles are over!”

Then the One said, “Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let’s grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education, free lunches, free medical care, bilingual signs and guaranteed housing...”

And the people said, “Hallelujah!!!” And they made him King!

And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers. Others simply gave up and went out of business and the economy sank like unto a rock dropped from a cliff. The banking industry was destroyed. Manufacturing slowed to a crawl. And more of the people were without a means of support.

Then The One said, “I am the The One – The Messiah - and I’m here to save you! We shall just print more money so everyone will have enough!”

But our foreign trading partners said unto Him, “Wait a minute. Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will have to pay more...”

And the people said, “Wait a minute. That is unfair!!”

And the world said, “Neither are these other idiotic programs you have embraced. Lo, you have become a Socialist State and a second-rate power. Now you shall play by our rules!”

And the people cried out, “Alas, alas!!! What have we done?"

But yea verily, it was too late. The people set upon The One and spat upon him and stoned him, and his name was dung. And the once mighty nation was no more; and the once proud people were without sustenance or shelter or hope. And the Change The One had given them was as like unto a poison that had destroyed them and like a whirlwind that consumed all that they had built.

And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish, “Give us back our nation and our pride and our hope!!!”

But it was too late, and their homeland was no more...

You may think this is a fairy tale, but it’s not.

It’s happening RIGHT NOW!

Food for thought, isn't it?
