I respectfully disagree with S. Palin about Gov. Perry's endorsement. IMO he has increased government bureaucracy by increasing license and registration regulations for many who might want to start a small business. If used for good purposes, these requirements are not all bad. I have several personal and business experiences with a few of the State commissions established to regulate the licensing and enforcement of regulations. All I see is increased expense to small business in State… Continue

I have a friend through Twitter who goes by Augustine25, and he has asked me to help promote a project that he is on. Please read on here and I promise you won't be unhappy you did. It opens up a new road of fact-finding that I'm sure you were believing were just unsubstantiated comments about who the real person behind the mask of POTUS is.

The issues that mean the most to me are the following.
1. American citizens first, stop the endless stream of immigration both illegal and "legal".
2. Secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws. No amensty. No continual exceptions.
3. Fiscal responsibilty.
4. Adhere to the constitution. Clarify the 14th amendent.
5. Reduce the power of the federal government and its ability to overturn the peoples will.
These are just some of my thoughts.… Continue

Fellow conservatives, liberatarians and freedom lovers,
As we watch government waste destroy the eocnomy, let us reflect on an example of military waste that took a liberal to stop.
Defense contractors Halliburton and then-Blackwater received "no-bid' contracts. Is that right? Military waste costs us - in more ways than one, ultimately costing us American lives.

Be specific and detailed.

I am Canadian however have spent the last 4 winters in Yuma Az. I consider this home. I do not have the rights of a citizen but follow the politics very carefully. I did not like Sarah at the start but after watching her whole Nashville address was most moved. I thought Ms. Rice could have been a runner, but she was too much a George (Jr) pawn. All I can say is get with the program. I am proud to be a Tea Party Member. Do any of you know who originated the Boston Tea Party. I am proud to be a… Continue

On behalf of myself, Laurie Cardoza-Moore and my Exce. Assistant Diane di Stasio, we would like
to say how encouraged we were by the enthusiastic response we received, from the Tea Party participants, regarding the prayer for Israel and the singing of the National Anthem. What an exciting and historical evening to be a part of...it was a great honor!
For those of you who are planning Tea Party Rallies and events in this upcoming year and would like to introduce… Continue

The Obama administration is claiming it has the right to execute
American citizens without a trial. Our most basic civil liberties are
being destroyed. According to Administration officials American citizens can be
denied their right to a trial by jury based on the nature of the crime they are suspected of committing.
What, ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS CLAIM THAT YOU ARE A TERRORIST AND THEY
CAN KILL YOU WITHOUT A TRIAL? They have… Continue

Beyond all the hype and hoopla and there was plenty to go around, the convention succeeded in solidifying a few ideas among the attendees. No matter where I sat, or who occupied the same table, a few recurring themes were discussed above the barrage of organizers behooving us to thank them and the other speakers. (despite the fact that our tickets paid for everything)
First, act locally. Sure, support and help those running for U.S. house and senate seats, that's all fine and… Continue

In terms of leadership, the Tea Party needs to follow the example of
the 1st Continental Congress by electing interim Presidents with 1 year
terms. It was these presidents that were actually the first Presidents
of the United States of America before George Washington (do some
Google research on the 1st & 2nd CC and find out). Also, send a
message, vote out incumbents then withdraw from the two major parties;
we don't need self serving, special interest… Continue

I have seen some upcoming candidates for 2010 but few have really caught my attention. That being said let me preface this by saying I am biased in this. So I do not want there to be any misunderstanding here. I first met Vincent oddly enough through email on Facebook because of his Gear Up Foundation. The work he did as a 9/11 first responder holds a… Continue

So what does it take for us to look out across this land and realize things are not the way it is supposed to be. America has stood strong for a long time while standing on the principals of the founding fathers. Over the years it seems we get further and further away from those principals. We have turned our back on what is right for what is popular. Sometimes those can be two very different things, but in a world where everyone wants to be liked, it is hard to stand firm… Continue

If the shoe fits........ Since Obama's State of the Union address is almost identical to his Joint Session of Congress speech a year ago, after astounding defeats in Virginia, New Jersey, and Massachusetts, of course he's not an ideologue. Wonder why he felt compelled to profess this in another speech before the recent Republican Conference. Straw man! Jeeze, when does this man 'preside'?

I'm in South Western PA. I 'll enter a few facts here to give folks an idea of my background. -70 years old-was in the Army, Military Police 1958-1961 and 10 months in 1976- did four years of college- various blue coller and security jobs- mainly doing writing the past 12 years, and recently editing manuscripts.
I lived in West Germany 1958 to 1971 and have seen first hand the result of big government. The result is not what we want here.
