Bradley County leaders decision to tax and spend, not sitting well with taxpayers

In Uncategorized on February 26, 2013 at 10:52 AM

The Bradley County News room just received an email that I thought would make a very appropriate “Letter to the Editor” type blog to be addressed in this news outlet and shared with our 50,000 plus readers in 106 countries.

The relevance of the letter comes on the heels of a huge regional tax and spend program startup with meetings to be kicked off in the month of March.

The Local Chamber of Commerce and other NGOs will be gambling billions upon billions of your tax dollars on “economic development” for our 3 state, 16 County megaregional “Thrive 2055” growth program.

The enormity of this project will be horrendously expensive and we the taxpayer will get very little benefit and we will see very little oversight by our elected leaders as non governmental organizations run amuck with your hard earned tax dollars.

The biggest message I received from this email was our locally elected representatives are not concerned with reducing our debt, only receiving more grants to spur new spending sprees. That is a fantastic summation of where our leaders are directing us with this regional growth plan.

They all “say or preach” the right thing when the press is around or hog the print to fuss about DC when they are doing the same thing only at the local level and on a smaller scale.

It’s time the citizens and ultimately taxpayers speak up and say enough is enough. We do not like the direction our County is going and we want to preserve our children’s future not gamble it away for the next federal grant that may come our way.

I think it’s high time we take responsibility for our city and county. Act responsible and live within our means for a change, cut our debt instead of mounding it on our children’s backs, robbing them of their own ability to be prosperous.

Letter to the Editor:

Gentlemen,
Let me please begin by recalling some of your quotes that are the basis of this e-mail to you all.
 
Gary Davis quote from TFP article by Paul Leach on Jan. 11 2013:

“These are all very good signs that we are slowly but surely growing our way out of this recession and, at least in Southeast Tennessee, doing our part to generate the revenue we need without raising taxes”
 
Jeff Morelock quote from TFP article by Paul Leach on Dec. 5, 2012:

“Are we going to invest in future industry here and have growth so we don’t have to increase taxes, or are we going to tell industry we’re not interested in you coming here?”
 
J. Adam Lowe from a CDB article 2/22/2013 by David Davis:

He “absolutely despises the conversation about reducing the deficit. I want to eliminate the deficit. I want to reduce the debt”.
He said his parents would pay more in taxes if they knew it would go toward paying foreign debt.
“There is not trust it will go to that”. “Their concern is that it will continue to fund programs…”
 
Each of these articles were about different issues but I found a common thread running through each of them in your quotes. All of you rail against Washington. All of you talk about how federal debt is an issue and all you ascribe to the same basic political and economic philosophies as the solution.
 
We have our own ever increasing debt problem in Bradley County and none of you talk about it (at least publicly as I can tell). It’s always about how bad things are in Washington. As a proportion we are at least as bad as Washington in this county. Is it not hypocrisy on your part to attack Washington when our situation is approaching a mirror image? And unlike Washington, you can’t just print more money until it is as worthless as the the currency became during the days of  the Wiemar Republic just preceding Hitler.
 
Instead of remaining within the bounds of what is expected of your job you take on the task of “economic development” based on the principles of sustainable development, public/private partnerships and now regional growth. We have been at this kind of activity for over 20 years now? How has it worked for us? Have all these PILOT programs, incentives and business “attraction” produced a ballooning budget surplus yet that you have so hoped for? No it hasn’t and it never will. Do you know what else? I cannot find one study, one piece of documentation anywhere that tells us this unholy alliance between big business and bigger government works. I have multiple studies from the right wing (The John Birch Society) all the way to the left wing (The NEA) as well as many other legal and academic studies that show what you are engaging in always fails. I defy you to find me one study that shows the success of government directed economic development. Understand: I want to believe it works. I want to believe that I can turn all of life’s problems over to my government and they will create a “livable community” for me. The evidence does not bare that out.
 
“Whirlpool is still here.” “Look at Volkswagen and Amazon”: is not a study. Sorry. There are always silver shovel ceremonies and short term bubbles of economic growth (makes for great headlines and photo ops) but that bubble always bursts. Then it leads to more economic development which means more debt! You promote these deals, we provide infrastructure and services at no cost to these corporations. They take federal, state and local monies in these programs. The result: either they are long gone by the time it is time for them to begin paying their full tax burden or if they are still here, we are hit up for another PILOT agreement. You are all aware of cities that have gone bankrupt such as Stockton, Cal. The big lie in the media is that it was all about out of control public employee benefits, retirements and the SEIU. I know there is some truth in part. However the real issue in these California cities is their net bonded debt that they could not pay. This debt was created by redevelopment schemes and business attraction programs just like what is being unleashed in our area now. What makes you think you will do better this time? Regionalism? Thrive 2055 will take care of it?  
 
As stated earlier; none of you suggest addressing the spending side of the equation to solve our deficit issues and spending “needs”. All of you agree that your activity will generate growth, that will generate jobs, that will generate revenue. Once again, we have been doing this for a long time, where is the budget surplus? Where is the debt reduction? Why do you still despair over a lack of revenue?

Your quotes are essentially threats to the people: let us spend this money on economic development or we will raise your taxes. Those are the only options you give. Jeff Morelock, this is especially true of your quote. You clearly give no thought to spending reduction. You want to grow the tax base to match the size of this government that continually increases. How are any of you different than Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama? I can’t tell the difference. These are the ones you probably all criticize and complain about “strings attached” as you continually take money in federal grants and sit back and act appalled at their behavior.
 
Let me make it simple and if you disagree, then at least I said my peace to you.
PILOT programs, TIF and other Tax abatements are wrong for four reasons: 
1. People like free stuff. Whether it is an individual or a corporation. I don’t blame them: they would be stupid for not taking what you are offering because if they don’t, their competition will. Once people or corporations start taking free stuff, they will never stop and demand more free stuff. I asked another county commissioner this  question to his face one time: Where does it end? He shook his head and muttered “I don’t know”. How sad of a response; yet he still votes for all this.

2. Corporations that have tax abatements do not pay for the services they consume. If you want to perform an experiment: let all county residents only pay the school portion of their property taxes for 6 months and see how far you get. And you don’t even have to build us a new fire station or a new road! The NEA study takes my position because they know the safeguards written into the law to protect school taxes does not work.

3. As you start using our tax money as an incentive do you not think other municipalities, regional entities, etc… are doing the same against us? I know in business when someone cuts a price, there is always retaliation against the price cutter. Soon a price war ensues. Gary Davis: I know you understand this: That is why you were caught on a YouTube video at the Walden Club asking our local municipalities to “stop competing with each other, that’s the point”. You said: “We don’t need to compete”. In business, that is a clear violation of the Sherman Anti-Trust act; In government, I guess you can create any sort of Cartel you want. You must be really excited about Thrive 2055. This is a whole new layer of unelected, unaccountable government who make decisions on what businesses will go where and what areas grow. However, this didn’t work in ancient Rome where it was pursued by Emporer Constantine in Constantinople. It did not work in the Soviet Union, and it will not work here. Central planning ALWAYS fails and leaves a trail of debt and poverty. Again, I will share multiple studies if you are interested.

4. NGOs like the Chamber of Commerce and quasi-government organizations like the Industrial Development board shop our tax money to people and corporations. I know these things are not your creation but your quotes and actions show you are more than willing participants. Again, these are unelected organizations and individuals that have no accountability to the people of Bradley County but declare themselves as our “representatives”. There were some very smart people who wrote our various state constitutions who outlawed the very activity the IDB engages in. I know full well these industrial development boards were created to get around state constitutional restraints that forbid municipalites from lending their credit to private comapnies or individuals. Again, many of these things came into being as a result of the New Deal and are not your doing, but they are still wrong. You can choose to not go along with this if you want. 
 
In closing,
We are poor. Let’s start acting like it. Stop complaing about Washington when in truth Washington is your life blood. We rely on federal grant money and you know it as well as I do. Its’ not just funding our local government directly from Washington – you can even look at our local “growth”. For example look at Spring Creek which is being built with HUD 221 backed financing. This is not real, organic economic growth and you know it. These developments are built with non-recourse loans with a lower down payment than any mortgage today. This is a formula for disaster. That’s exactly what caused the housing bubble in the first place! However there is always a recourse – The American taxpayer!!

Show Washington how it’s done. You have your own debt problem to deal with.
J. Adam Lowe: If you are serious about debt, I suggest you offer up a proposal to raise property tax rates in the county with all the proceeds to go to a “lock box” for debt reduction. Think about it – you can be the Ross Perot of Bradley County!! Remember he ran on a platform to tax a gallon of gasoline $.50 that went right to debt reduction? I don’t think you will get that far in your political career by pointing attention to our local debt load but it’s worth a try.

The truth of the matter is that all of you don’t want more revenue for debt reduction: you want more revenue for more spending. My proof is the wheel tax proposal that failed. More money for more borrowing.

Gentlemen, please consider going in a new direction. Consider these words and I am happy to reconsider where I am wrong in my conclusions. Can you say the same about yourselves? I have nothing against any of you personally as I have not met many of you. It’s not any of you as a person that drives me to write this: It is the political and economic philosophies you are following that I find objectionable.
 
P.S.
Let’s start by pulling out of that exit 20 land deal that the city and county paid about $4 millon dollars too much for. I would like a copy of the property assessment for that land by the way. can one of you please scan and send your copy to me?
 
Thank you for your attention,
 
Rob Bower

Ringstaff opts for PC with “we will not tolerate” guns in Cleveland City schools statement

In Uncategorized on February 13, 2013 at 10:27 AM

This week, the Cleveland TN City School Board has voted 7 to 0 to not allow guns in our city schools to protect our children.

The only exception made was that police resource officers may carry guns on city school property.

A move that essentially leaves your child as vulnerable today as it did yesterday. Politically speaking the city school board debated and voted to essentially make no new improvements or improve upon the security inside our city public schools and have given the teachers no added avenues to protect our children.

I agree that not every teacher has the desire or personality needed to confront an armed gunman face to face. The fact remains that many of our teachers are veterans and ex or current law enforcement officers and have more than enough training to yield a gun to protect our kids.

In the aftermath of Newtown and Sandy Hook and dozens of other horrible incidents in our schools, concerned citizens and taxpayers are asking for increased protection. That request has not only been ignored it has been stated and voted upon that we “will not tolerate” guns in our schools.

This to me means that only bad guys with guns will be allowed in our schools. Look at the message this sends.

I am assuming Mr Ringstaff and the school board will also have concerns about the most recent bill that is forging ahead that allows guns in parking lots for the safety of the teachers who travel back and forth.

In a world that is accepting of political correctness, the Cleveland city school board has obliged and have severely missed the mark. The opportunity to demonstrate to the community that your child’s safety is in our best interest was lost in the hopes to look politically correct in the eyes of a growing leftist viewpoint.

What a world we live in where the leaders of the city of Cleveland Tennessee are so attuned to the daily drumbeat from the White House that the safety factor is ignored for our children for the sake of not looking confrontational to the policies coming from DC.

Why not just choose to not make a statement at all Mr Ringstaff or how about making a statement such as the safety of our kids in our schools are of utmost importance and we will continue to protect them as we have for years, with guns, may I remind you. Anyone approaching our property with the intent to harm will be met with deadly force.

Instead, we get the PC version directly from the Socialist playbook, we will not tolerate guns in our schools, with exceptions.

Where is the day when leaders stood up and were accountable? Where is a community that cries out when a director of schools makes a statement that leads to absolutely not one added barrier of added security to protect your children but does allow for his anti gun rhetoric to flourish although the community is crying out for you to take action.

I am puzzled.

Let’s hope and pray in spite of our elected and appointed leaders that we do not have disasters such as aforementioned. Let’s make a conscious decision to hold our leaders completely accountable for any breeches o safety upon our kids. Hopefully this outcry will spawn action. The message that your desire to be PC is crippling this country and is leaving our children less safe.

I pray down an order of protection around our schools, obviously our leaders have chosen to do otherwise with this recent action.

This blog is only my opinion and if you read and disagree, I challenge you to tell me what they have done with this vote and a missed opportunity to protect our children.

If you are completely honest with your self, I’m sure you will come to the same conclusion as me and that is:

No added barriers of safety were decided and voted upon that further protect our children. Only a politically correct gun control statement was made and nothing else.

I digress for now, because I am bewildered!

Harwell/Haslam power grab limits TN legislators to 10 bills each session

In Uncategorized on January 9, 2013 at 8:02 AM

Speaker Beth Harwell and Governor Haslam try to gain iron-grip control over TN legislature

The latest news coming from Nashville Tennessee this week can be best described as a “Power Grab” by lawmakers and Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam and House Speaker Beth Harwell.

The recent steps taken by these two political puppets is clearly a step in giving the legislative branch of our representative government less power while taking the representation out of our state legislatures hands and puts the power to manipulate legislation in the hands of the speaker and the leftist Governor and out of the hands of the people they represent.

In a recent proposal made by TN House Speaker Beth Harwell, obviously made from a request by the Governors desk, calls for TN Legislators to have the ability to only sponsor and submit 10 bill proposals in a legislative session with many exemptions and no restraints on the Governor, giving him dictatorial powers only realized by a few states.

The TNR article below reports the following exemptions giving the Governor more dictatorial power.

Proposed exemptions in the 10-bill cap include:

+ Bills dealing with cities and counties

+ Sunset bills

+ Memorializing or congratulatory resolutions that are not referred to a standing committee

+ Resolutions confirming appointments or authorizing charitable events

+ Resolutions that are procedural in nature that are not referred to a standing committee

Harwell’s office defended granting the governor and his staff special latitude under the measure.

“Much of the legislation presented by the administration has more to do with the nuts and bolts of running state government, and is necessary to the process,” Harwell spokeswoman Kara Owen told TNReport in a statement. “Further, we certainly want to allow members the latitude to use their ten bills for their districts’ priorities, so we feel the exemption to Administration is needed.”

Speaker Harwell and the Governor are citing costs as the driver of this proposal that limits representation from our state representatives. Some legislators are capable of submitting 90 to 100 bills in a session and some representatives have a reputation for “getting a great number” of those bills passed. State budget advocates say it costs a great deal of money to research each bill and apply “numbers” to each bill, stating less bills equals less money spent unwisely. Many citizens who feel bill proposal limitations are a way to deflect their voice and limits the power if the people using their representatives to legislate protection of their rights as members of a constitutional republic.

If this proposal goes forward and is approved by the legislature and ultimately the Governor, large special interest groups and lobbyists with endless money influence will rule our Tn State Legislature and will take the power of the people away and into the hands of a bureaucrat with deep pockets.

It is rumored in Nashville that many lobbyists and special interest groups are already lobbying for their place in line with each legislator, “I get the 2nd and 3rd bill of 10, so and so got your ear last year, one of those spots belong to me!” What a tragedy this Harwell proposal creates. The power of the people taken away at the expense of big government with constraints on those that represent them and lay prey to special interests.

One can argue that “I thought you wanted smaller government, sir? Yes smaller government is always better but smaller government with less representation is not a favorable solution.

Let’s get on the phone and let this RINO darling know that we want equal and unfettered representation in our State House. We the people on occasion suggest model legislation also with issues that affect us. In my opinion this move by the Governor and Speaker Harwell limits our ability to be represented in our own state.

Call the numbers below and quickly as this issue is being debated this week and a decision will be made soon. Let’s let Harwell and Haslam know that dictatorships are not well thought of in the state of Tennessee!

They together are trying to railroad a rules change to stop conservative policies from being implemented. Let’s not let this takeover of our representative government by a few puppets who are deadset on limiting the power of the people.

Here is the story:

Call or email her office and tell her NO rules changes!

Top 10 “must do” list to revamp the GOP for a win in 2016

In Uncategorized on November 8, 2012 at 10:03 AM

Whether you like the results or not, the left whooped our arses in this last presidential election. If it would have been a baseball game they would have called it in the fifth and invoked the mercy rule.

The left definitely listened to their demographic and capitalized largely on the citizens that reside in those certain groups. A very smart tactic that worked and made the grand ole party look like amateurish mush in need of critical life support.

The overwhelming message that glared out at me this election was how out of step the GOP was with the American people and how well the left executed.

Many within the GOP, the Tea Parties, conservative grassroots groups, Liberty groups and PACs were really doubting these guys could win. As we lifted Romney/Ryan to the pinnacle we would surely realize that no matter what we said or did this cardboard almost wooden, lackluster, no fight in the dog, Mormon elitist, pansy waisted, type robot could win the battle to be our next Prez! Heck, even Ryan didn’t resign his elected post and retained his seat! Even he didn’t think they could win!

I kept asking myself while watching the GOP shove these two machine proteges down our throats, “is this the best representation of the people that are in our midst? Surely not! My kids kept telling me, they are so lame, Dad! We need someone young and cool! They don’t understand us.

What is it going to take? Where do we go from here? What must be done to harness the strength of our youth, the wisdom of our grey hairs, the power of the womens vote, the face of a diverse nation?

I personally believe the GOP has been handed their last chance to prove themselves worthy of being called the Grand Ole Party! Time for the fossils to step aside and allow a new breed to take over the species. Time for it’s young to rise up, mature quickly and replace the sick and nimble. Third party? Renewed party? I think only time will tell but it’s time for change!

First, we must acknowledge that conservatives, the GOP, the right, Tea Party/Liberty groups will never win another election unless we restructure our approach to winning an election. Period! End of sentence!

The GOP/Conservative side has to realize we have a problem and that problem must be corrected or done away with completely and start over. We must be willing to restructure or get the hades out of the way and let the people lift up a candidate of their choice.

I have humbly prepared a top ten list, pretty much in the way David Letterman may do. It is a list that may grow. But after a restless night of thinking I awoke with these thoughts. Like or dislike, if we are to save our country from the leftist socialist they must be done and better than the left has done with these groupings.

1) Immigrants:

They are now a viable voting block whether you like it or not, they arent going anywhere and they represent perhaps 30 to 40 million voters and are growing exponentially every day. In 4 years under current leadership they may grow to around 100 million or so strong and the whites will be a whimsical minority. Give them a job, a home, status, a little respect and they will vote for you every election. You cannot ignore that fact nor will we ever be able to overcome those numbers no matter what we do if we don’t change our approach.

First, make them legal! Yeah, yeah, sending them back across the border and close them is not going to happen nor do they want to go home. They are now a part of us because we didn’t address the immigration issue 10 years ago. Our bad, now deal with it!

Make a concerted effort to capture at least 51 percent of this demographic. Give them a 3 point plan to become legal, pay their share of the tax burden, contribute as all Americans do and encourage investment in America instead of forcing them to send their money back to their homeland. Provide a way to for them to plug into the system instead of being a drain on the system.

2) Foreign policy

We must get our troops home and safe now, yesterday! We are spread out all over the place. I have heard some wrongfully say, we shouldnt be on any foreign land fighting other peoples wars. Listen up to this! We must maintain a strong military that is strong and vibrant and has a reputation of you muck with us or our allies you will suffer a certain death with the greatest force on tbis Earth that could send a punch that would knock your head off quickly and precisely. Hint at attacking us and the war dogs will be unleashed mightily and steadily till you are annihilated or neutralized. Untie our soldiers hands and don’t restrict or disengage their rules of engagement. Then it will be simple to minimize our involvement and leave strategic reactionary forces in hot spots to neutralize any aggression appropriately and swiftly if need be. Gives these guys the full ability to protect themselves an neutralize the opposing forces.

We need to be on our homeland, looking out across the globe like a cobra, ready to strike with a vengeance if you mess with the US or it’s allies, particularly Israel.

Let the rest of the world know we have the mightiest fighting force in the world and we will unleash it if need be with a quick response that will light up your sky like the 4th of July.

The enemy respects a strong military force and if they fear you they will respect you.

3) Fiscal conservancy

Pass a dang balanced budget and cut our taxes. Cut the fat! Reign in pork barrel spending! Lower taxes! Cut the deficit! Assume a position of authority on this subject.

My personal budget goes all to heck if I spend more than I make, why can’t we expect the same from our government of whom on average we send 20 to 50 percent of our income too. We call ourselves one of the wealthiest nations in the world based on our GDP, yet we are 16 trillion and growing in debt. We are broke! We are bankrupt!

Plan to decrease the beuracracy and eliminate wasteful and unconstitutional departments. Show the US some value in me sending a great portion of our hard earned money to the government, reassure me it will be spent wisely.

4) Put the fight back in the dog.

The one constant thing I keep hearing about Mitt Romney is that he too easily backs down from a fight or doesn’t stand up strong on the issues. He is not unlike a dog that is on a shock collar. Even after the shock collar is removed he looks around like he is gonna bark but withdrawals and retreats from barking further because it may be painful or uncomfortable for him. But if he just went ahead and barked he may realize the collar is not constraining his desire to bark.

The people want a man or woman with some spunk and vitality. Not over the top, just passionate about his or her platform.

5) Realize women call the shots

The women run things period! Momma aint happy nobody happy! My wife and my mom are the two least people that I want to piss off. The right has done a poor job of tapping into a woman’s creativity and ability to run a nation and have dismissed them and have resigned them to a mere support role.

A woman can do more before daylight than most established GOP elected men can do in a lifetime. Harness this power, understand them, use their knowledge of organization and structure to run this country and promote them up through the ranks. They are naturals!

There is a reason that more women were elected to key seats than at any time in our history this last election. They have the ability. They know how to get the job done and do it very well. And also they have a hormone thing that turns them into super women for a week out of the month which could serve us very well dealing with a dictator or for pushing a new bill through the senate or house.

Women are also tired of seeing this country ran by less than manly men. If you happen to be a man and in office, realize you haven’t done such a great job the last 250 years or so.

Oh yeah, and keep your pants up! The last thing a woman wants to do is consider casting a vote for someone who reminds them of an ex. Being elected to office shouldn’t automatically elevate you in your mind to Greek God status feeding grapes to your harem nor does being elected by your peers give you the right to do so. The exception being Harry Reid on the left, sorry about that visual.

6) Reach out to the kids, apply the ABCs

It is as simple as ABC for reaching our kids. A-Acknowledge they are our future, exist and are very important for our future, B- Be there to listen to them when they speak, C- Care about their issues.

Sure it is easy to dismiss a child and what they have to say as irrelevant or lacking understanding. Kids these days are attuned to what is going on in our world and they understand more than you think. We must reach out and touch the kids and ask them to contribute. Remember the curly headed, smelly, zit faced 8th grader is your voting block in 2016 and beyond. They are also dying to vote for someone that looks more like them and that understands them.

8) Replace the fossils, infuse the party with new blood and get rid of stinking thinking.

Which brings me to my next subject. A young face with new fresh hip ideas. Tres Wittum comes to mind! Look him up! Good looking, well dressed, young and willing to listen. (He would probably be embarrassed by these comments but he is more of what we need.) Sally Absher, TN state Executive Committee woman, a female, well spoken and versed on issues that are relevant to our cause on the right. Bobbie Partray, we all could learn from this person. Tres impressed me recently when he posted on Facebook recently and I took away from the posts that something is awry within the GOP and something must change. It may be time for him to launch his political endeavors. Notice I didn’t say career, we don’t need career oriented politicians, we need Americans who are going to stand up and be accountable and if it means pushing off the old outdated party, so be it.

7) Don’t rain on the rainbow warriors parade

Face it! The alternative lifestyle is a big portion of our landscape and they are very passionate about the issues. The homosexuals are a huge voting block and are demanding their voices be heard.

Ok, I know I take a risk here with socially conservative (gotta get rid of that word conservative) folks who will say they are sinners and they are going straight to hell!!!! Well aren’t we all sinners and werent we all going to hell the day we became accountable? Doesn’t the blood of Jesus cover all our sins and isn’t it good enough for all sinners?

Whew! I’m gonna hear the flak on this one. Allow me to finish please. What better way to reach “sinners” than to accept them into your flock and show them a kind and gentle God who had the ability and is willing to love all his sinners, his creation. I believe in the common theme worn by many youth on their wrists for years “What would Jesus do?” Ask your self this the next time you want to harm one of them. I think you know the answer.

8) Get rid of the religious nut jobs, give our churches a voice

The Church and it’s leaders have lost their way. The UN has infiltrated them with lofty goals of eradicating poverty through a deceptive MDGs or Millenium Development Goals and have stripped them of their ability to speak out of fear of losing their tax status.

This is such a sad statement that the church has allowed themselves to be muted from their pulpit because they fear speaking up and losing a little money. After all, in these tough times the church should be there for us everyday, in our hearts, not in some log jammed coporatacracy of what used to be a church. Remember, this is why you were granted this luxury of a tax exemption.

We have to release them and encourage them to allow them a hand in re shaping our future by influencing Christians in this country and in their congregations.

Abortion? I will simply say we need a consistent voice on this subject. Many young people are being pulled on this issue and our message must be clear and distinct. Do away with the rhetoric about it. No mixed messages.

9) Get rid of the word conservative or grassroots

The label conservative does not have the same meaning it did 3 years ago when I started my activism. The conservative of old meant you believed in less government, less taxes and more freedom. Now, everyone is a conservative! When the GOP took over and infiltrated the many Tea Parties and conservative groups with their big money machine and heavy influence we lost our way. Neo cons, RINOS even the left is calling themselves conservative. They have diluted it’s meaning. We are all now conservative and we all can’t be, we just can’t, it doesn’t work that way.

10) Resonate with the black and minority voters.

The GOP is about as white as the driven snow that is falling on the East coast today. Have you ever been to a GOP convention or meeting or even a Tea Party or Liberty meeting for that matter? White, all white. Not that it is intentional or we are racist but that it is the product of our involvement. Our message does not include them. They, for some reason are not hearing a message that resonates with them.

Take poor ole Allen West for instance. Black man with big cahunas and a strong voice and he can’t muster enough votes to at the time of this writing to swing a win inside whiteys world. A disconnect here and it must be fixed.

Just as Madea, the lead character of many Tyler Perry films might say to the GOP “you better rec-o-nize fool!” Tapping into this very passionate block of patriots who have seen tough times and are not willing to forget is an essential place to be.

Reach out to this group, find common ground ask them where we have gone errant, re structure and embrace them while succumbing to their needs and desires. They are strong Americans looking to be led or to lead the flock, give them this opportunity.

I know I said 10, consider this one a bonus.

11) get rid of the excessive lobbyist, big-money corporate types and NGOs off the floors and in the hallways of the House floor and The Senate.

We dont need our elected officials taking bribes in a hallway from a corporate lobbyists to protect their interest. Put a 250 foot barrier around our elected officials offices and state houses and ask them to have no access to our representative bodies. After all, we can gripe all day about a bill or issue but if a guy in a fancy suit slips our rep with an unknown dollar donation, no wander we can get anything done to the contrary.

Summation:

I am only a blogger and activist. These comments above are only my opinions based on my observations. They do not represent a group or a party. They are only my opinions and thought.

Chew me up and spit me out if you wish but remember I have a personality disorder that relishes being in the fray, I find comfort and an odd peacefulness there. It makes me feel alive and in a wierd way sorta like channeling a modern day Patrick Henry type patriotism.

Our system is broken, the GOP is floundering and we have too many elitist running this country and the party of the so called right are completely out of touch and have lost their way.

I will end here! What we are doing to overcome the lefts punch is not working! Here is my submitted plan. Will anyone take the ball and run or will we simply stay in our comfort zone and lose again soundly in 2016.

My parting words,

IT AIN’T WORKING! GET YOUR SPIT TOGETHER AND DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT OR GET OFF THE POT AND LET AMERICA SAVE ITS SELF !!!!

Obamacare: Proposed mandatory tax form, sharing your medical history with IRS

In Uncategorized on November 7, 2012 at 8:22 AM

You want hope and change? You are fixing to get it except I don’t think you will be hoping for this type of change. In the aftermath of the beginning of our plunge into total socialism I have decided to not focus on the recent election and it’s results. We are all burned out on that anyway. Instead I have decided to focus on the consequence of re electing a socialist/communist to a second term and the affect it will have on you.

We are only beginning to see what this monster is capable of. The future will reveal many more tragedies as a result of the majority of Americans falling asleep at the polls.

Another tax, yes, Obamacare is a tax. And to pay a tax it will require another form. Another tax means that you will be responsible for paying that tax which equates to about 10 percent of the average income of all Americans in the form of a penalty.

Many more taxes will come in our near future to pay for the more than 6 trillion surmounted by this fake president and the trillions it will take to fund Obamacare. But today we focus on just the penalties for not purchasing the mandatory insurance from the government. Yes it is required and if you don’t purchase it you will pay hefty fines to the IRS, enforceable by law according to tax laws complete with imprisonment if not paid. Mr Obama has hired and trained another 25,000 IRS agents to enforce this new tax penalty.

Did I mention that you will be required to have a medical ID number, some have even said these may be implantable under your skin for quick access when your medical information is needed. Don’t scoff because it was in the first version of OBAMACARE and has since been removed but they keep bringing it up leading me to believe it will resurface at one point. A probable healthcare history questionnaire is probably not too far into our future and must be done quickly as the roll out and the big push to OBAMACARE starts in 2014. Giving my health information to the IRS? Didn’t think it would be in my lifetime.

Many exemptions will be given for religious or economic status and that will probably equate to about 50 percent of our population that will not be required to file this tax form which tells me that 50 percent will be paying large premiums, in Tennessee, it is being speculated that because we will be paying greater amounts for those exempt and those with no limits on their pre existing conditions we will most likely see premiums in the range of 1500 to 2000 dollars a month. And if you opt out you get fined for each month you did not purchase the governments mandatory health care plan.

Many in America placed this burden and many others on themselves by re electing the fake president to office. I am afraid we have gotten so wrapped up in the glitz, glamour and oratory ability of the fake president that we have failed to see the real problems that lie just under the surface.

Prepare for less of your income to be taken home. Eventually, our take home pay will be negative to zero and at that point all the goods and services provided by the government will be deducted from your check and we are at that time truly a socialist nation. You will punch a clock, work all day and consume your services that are deducted from your pay check and provided to you by the good ole US government! Doesn’t that make us slaves? Servants? Serfs?

IRS Tax Form for Obamacare Individual Mandate
Our projected IRS form assists 140 million Americans in their obligation to disclose personal identifying health information and calculate the IRS tax penalty.

As a service to the public, Americans for Tax Reform has released a projected tax form to help families and tax specialists prepare for the additional filing requirement of the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate provision.

Starting in 2014, all Americans who file income tax returns must complete an additional IRS tax form. The new form requires disclosure of a taxpayer’s personal identifying health information in order to determine compliance with the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate.  As confirmed by IRS testimony to the tax-writing House Committee on Ways and Means, “taxpayers will file their tax returns reporting their health insurance coverage, and/or making a payment”.  

Highlights from the Obamacare Individual Mandate Tax Compliance Form:

1.  Determination of “qualifying” health insurance.  Under the Affordable Care Act,  most Americans must purchase health insurance deemed “qualified” by the Department of Health and Human Services  (HHS) starting in 2014.  Failure to comply with this mandate results in a tax penalty which must be paid to the IRS. The tax penalty ranges from $695 to $2085, or more, depending on the size of a family.  The dollar amount grows over time and is tabulated on the form. Taxpayers must demonstrate that they obtained qualifying health insurance for each month of the year in order to avoid payment of this tax penalty. [See lines 12-13]

2.  Disclosure of personal identifying health information.  Every family that files a tax return (140 million households) will have to disclose whether or not they were covered by a qualifying plan, in which months they were covered, and what type of coverage they received.  Tax filers must also divulge and disclose their personal health ID number, the nature of their health insurance, and other information from their health insurance card as further IRS regulations warrant.  [See lines 3-4]

3.  Exemptions from Individual Mandate: Prisoners, Undocumented Immigrants, Welfare Recipients. The form also determines which individuals are exempt from the Individual Mandate and non-compliance taxes. Classes of individuals who are exempt from the mandate include but are not limited to: those serving sentences in the federal penitentiary system; those persons not legally able to work in the U.S.; welfare recipients; and those qualifying for an HHS-granted religious exemption.  [See lines 8-11]

4.  IRS penalties and interest on unpaid mandate taxes.  Because the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate penalty is a tax, the IRS will be able to assess interest and non-criminal penalties on those families who will not or cannot pay the tax. The IRS will issue regular, periodic correspondence audits to these families to help them comply with their filing responsibilities.

Chris Privette brings Doomsday preparedness to Bradley County, TN

In Uncategorized on October 31, 2012 at 5:24 AM

On November 6th, 2012 at the Cleveland/Bradley Public Library, 795 Church Street NE, 630 pm the Tea Party of Bradley County will be posting “super Prepper” Chris Privette.

Chris is an ex Marine, US Air Marshall and national speaker with lots of information to give us and puts on a very lively performance.
 
I recently saw Chris speak to the Tennessee Tea Party Leadership Conference in Ooltewah and was he dynamic. He will tell and show us all phases of preparedness and the importance of being prepared in all types of disaster whether they be by nature or man made.

As hurricane Sandy pounds the East Coast, the current state of our economy and the perilous time our current fake president has created, it brings home the message of being prepared.

Fake President Obama has warned us of a “October surprise” and no one in the media is even asking him what he meant when he said that. I predict it will be a turn of events that may or could halt the way we currently live in the USA. At this point in time, being prepared for any situation to survive on the basics of the land will be of utmost importance to you in these uncertain times.

Never before have I felt such an urgency to prepare, “prep” for a drastic shift in our lifestyles. You may not be able to to run out to the grocery store for your needs. If your neighbor has prepped for bad times, they will be highly unlikely to share any of their supplies with you as their families safety and security will be at a premium, you will be on your own. Your immediate and long term survival will be solely up to you.

To have my family deteriorate and starve because I didn’t take a few extra steps to prepare and feed them in a doomsday scenario is not a situation I would want to be in. It doesn’t take much to prepare and the time you invest in their safety and security will be well worth the time of a few classes.
 
Preppers, as you may know are being “eyed” by the Federal Government agencies like the TSA and DHS as trouble makers or Anti Federalist and the US government has even created a military program of how to deal with these types of Americans. For some reason, they see being successful and safe during doomsday scenarios as a threat to national security. Sadly, “preppers” are being targeted as potential terrorist threats by this administration.
 
We are living in extremely perilous and unbalanced times and we best be prepared for anything. Remember, we are not the bad guys here. We are protecting our country and our constitution and they call us anti federalist, go figure.
 
As you may sense, many, including myself feel that this election may be our last one as a free nation with the rights we now know suspended soon thereafter. Hurricane Sandy may well be the opportune set up to suspend or negate our elections and declare martial law, thus plunging us into utter chaos and many in America protesting in the streets. This will quickly lead to an undesired revolution. The time is prime for this possible scenario and the left may surely make this scenario possible.
 
As I have stated before, and many within our own elected seats think the UN coming to our country to participate in our election process is benign and it’s being blown out of proportion. The UN via the OSCE is sending 44 delegates to 44 different states to monitor our elections at the request of the NAACP, ACLU, SEIU and others.

I believe that they will be here to throw a wrench in our constitutional republican process and assure the left wins this election, so their socialist US breaking ways will continue. I firmly believe that if Obama does not win there will be massive protest and our world as we know it will be turned up side down drastically. The Armenian and French UN delegates will be in Nashville very soon to monitor our state. I firmly believe the product of their known participation may be very litigious if their candidate is not successful.
 
If and when martial law is implemented you may see a tremendous need to be prepared to survive in a freedomless country with very tight and strict restraints on you and the ones you love. You better know what to do and it would be wise to do so quickly!!!!!!
 
Soooooooo, do not miss this meeting! Of all the meetings we have had in the past, none are as personally important to you as this one.

We will be the “go to” leaders of this community and region if the bottom falls out of this country and we need to be able to have the knowledge to lead by example. Hundreds of thousands around you may be without the information to survive and quickly attention will be focused on those that do. Which side do you want to be on?
 
Bring someone with you. Wake your neighbor! If you have militia friends who need a little extra training from one of the best please invite them to this meeting. This guy is that good.
 
We need a great crowd and we are doing alot of advertising for this event and personally we need our whole group to show up and support these meetings. We need your participation to ensure the success of activities like this.
 
Hope to see you there and dont worry we will have you out by the election returns. Watching the election returns after watching Chris Privette will be a very ominous class. I can’t wait!
 
Come and enjoy the speaker and take away something you may need in the very near future for your survival.

I would also to thank US Senate Candidate Shaun Crowell, Congressman Scott DeJarlais, State Representative Kevin Brooks, John Smith and Brandon Lewis for speaking to our group last meeting.
 
As always, the next Tea Party of Bradley County will be the 3rd Tuesday of every month at the Bradley County Courthouse, 630 pm unless otherwise notified. As in this instance, because of the quality of this speaker we have acquired the Cleveland/Bradley Library for this special event!
 
Remember this meeting is at the library , Novemember 6th at 630 pm at the Library, not the courthouse.
 
Send this out to everyone you know and bring someone with you or two or three people for that matter.
 
See ya there with bells on!
 
Your future depends on you to be prepared and ready for what you will be inevitably be experiencing soon. This is no joke guys!
 
Our country could take a serious left real soon.

Check out this video on YouTube:

I have started prepping and have become overwhelmed with the ennormity of it, gotten frustrated and quit. But, this video makes it very simple and giving you a very easy 10 step plan to get you started. You can then take this plan and very easily build your stockpile bigger and better.

Have a great day and hope to see you there.

UN/OSCE sending “poll watchers” to monitor US election, TN included

In Uncategorized on October 27, 2012 at 10:02 AM

Breaking News:

The United Nations and the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) will be sending a 44 multi-national delegation to the United States to monitor and observe the US election process for human rights violations, voter suppression and election fraud.

The NAACP, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, and others have sent a letter to Daan Everts of OSCE to warn of “a coordinated political effort to disenfranchise millions of Americans- particularly traditionally disenfranchised groups like minorities.”

Giovanna Maiola, a spokeswoman for OSCE, said that the monitors will “observe the overall election process, not just the ballot casting. They are focusing on a number of areas on the state level, including the legal system, election administration, the campaign, the campaign financing [and] new voting technologies used in the different states.”

Why only 44 state delegates? Missouri, South Dakota, North Dakota, and New Mexico, permit international observation during elections. Maiola said that OSCE will only observe in polls in states in which international access is permitted. This only adds up to 48 states mentioned, my guess is they will attempt to monitor states that have an international waiver, defying state law, perhaps in a few swing states not mentioned.

News of the UN-affiliated observers comes one day after Breitbart Editor-in-Chief Joel Pollak reported that the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights has warned Americans not to elect Republican candidate Mitt Romney as the next president. Alluding to Romney’s refusal to ban waterboarding in interrogation practices of terror detainees, Ben Emmerson of the UN said that electing Romney would be “a democratic mandate for torture.”

The ACLU, SEIU and True the Vote (ACORN associated) are sending 300 plus attorneys and thousands of volunteers across the nation to observe the voting process that in their opinion will “disenfranchise minority voters and not allow them to cast their vote.”

These plentiful leftist organizations along with the United Nations are making it very clear to the world that anyone getting elected but Barrack Hussein Obama is not going to be acceptable and they will do everything within their power to make sure that Obama is elected, even using international bodies to do so.

Armenian Gayane Horhannisyan and French observer Nicolas Teindes will be doing the duty as UN/OSCE observers in Nashville Tennessee and Frankfort Kentucky. In neighboring Georgia and Alabama the delegation assigned is as follows: Spanish observer Isabel Menchon-Lopez and the United Kingdoms James Morrison will do the honors in these states. The 44 person delegation assignment posted does not specifically address which one will go to which state, but be reassured they will be there.

In summation, one word “UNBELIEVEABLE!” We live in the United States a completely sovereign nation with our own election process that has served us well for many generations. For the most part it has gone unscathed and has done what it is constitutionally supposed to do, leaving us with a peaceful and serene transition.

Now I feel that our political system along with our Nation has been hijacked by a fake president with his race baiting, racist, war mongering, hate promoting, peace abating, clan of Socialist, Marxist, Leninist and un-American thugs are going to create a huge disruption at the polls this Novemeber 6th, 2012 that could possibly plunge our nation into a deep crisis and perhaps a revolution.

Think about it? The ACLU sending out 300 plus lawyers across the nation, the NAACP and Project Vote have petitioned the UN and OSCE(a human rights and voter fraud international watchdog) to watch our voting process. Something smells!

What if the election were to go to Romney and the Socialist favorite Obama loses? This raises the questions of why are these international delegates, attorneys and race baiters so heavily involved? In my personal opinion, I am convinced that the vote and the count will be protested and the election process will be halted and Obama will remain the fake president for an indefinite period, mass riots will break out, martial law will ensue, the Obama civilian police force and the US military activated, our guns pulled and our rights as humans suspended indefinitely. A recount of the vote by “international bodies” with international pressure to reinstate the Marxist dictator and the vote overturned. Obama nominated as the next president and the UN “calling him up” to be a world leader with supreme power over the New World Order. Before I lose you, I’m a blogger and activist, I’m supposed to inject likely scenarios based on my opinion and research. You want get it in the mainstream media, that’s for sure.

I know this reads like a sic-fi movie thriller straight out of Hollwood but im afraid it is a very likely scenario in our midst and these leftist guerillas within our own nation are imparting their will on our civil nation.

Let it be known, this scenario and possible future unrest will not come from the right, the patriots of this country. It will ignited by the aforementioned above. True Americans love this country and are willing to protect her. We do not need a fight in the streets and all restraint should be exercised but how much can this nation stand? War is hell and should be avoided at all cost. The left is setting this country up for it’s demise, the puzzle pieces are falling together and the spark they create on election day may be more than a free nation can bare.

In light of this recent news, I am curious as to how our State elected representatives will react to this news. I know a few will read this blog. Is it time to man up or woman up? If those who lead this state choose not to intervene and stop this potential disaster, are they to blame? Will inactivity by our state leaders be viewed by the citizenry they represent as passive and complicit? Only time will tell! We will see.

Thus far, I have not been able to find any public reactions to this debacle by our Tennessee elected representatives, but the news is young and has just surfaced, it may take a little more time for them to respond.

Will our State Representatives Eric Watson, State Representative Kevin Brooks, our Tennessee State House Leader, other reps, Congressman DeJarlais, Congressman Fleischmann, State Senators Mike Bell, US Senator Lamar Alexander, US Senator Bob Corker, Governor Bill Haslam and other State Representatives step up and re-establish our State and National sovereignty from the UN? Call them and demand they act. I hope they react. I honestly hope so, because I feel the safety and security of our state depends on it.

I want to also thank Karen Bracken, a national patriot watch dog for sending me the email detailing the UN/OSCE delegate and their assigments. I also would like to thank Brietbart.com and their staff for providing many of the quotes from the above article.

I have provided an unusually long list of sources for this info as I expect many will dismiss this as too far out there to believe. So for those many naysayers who refuse to believe that our country has been hijacked and many within do not want this country to exist in it’s current form, read and decide for yourself as our nation crumbles.

Unfit to Rule, an old document must be revisited

In Uncategorized on October 18, 2012 at 9:32 AM

Nearly 250 years ago our founding fathers stood against a tyrannical oppressive government in the form of King George and suffered greatly at the hands of a King that cared not where his swift hand landed.

Today, again, repeatedly we find ourselves at a point in history where we find it necessary to make a stand against the same type of government that our original 13 colonies and it’s leaders faced. They saw fit to rise up and replace a form of government that was no longer representative of the people.

King George, as any elected or appointed ruler must be dissolved when that person is no longer a representative of the people.

Commissioners, Councilmen, Mayors, NGOs, State Representatives, State and US Senators, Governors and Presidents must be replaced at the ballot box when they become complacent and no longer representative of the people.

We as a country, a community stand at a crossroads where if we do not act the country we have will be no longer. Out free nation is standing at a crossroads. We have a fake president who is unfit to lead. We have many federal, state and local representatives of our country that are no longer in elected positions to uphold the constitution and assure the sovereignty of its people remain. Just as our forefathers saw the need to restrain and replace a King, we now must take the same steps and replace a King and his oppressive government once again.

This upcoming election and the ones soon thereafter will be the most important decisions we as a country will make in nearly 250 years. The conclusion is our current form of government is not a true representation of the people.

The document that separated the powers and saved this country is once again being called upon to provide guidance as we “overthrow” another tyrannical government. The pertinent and relevance to what our forefathers suffered and our current situation is uncanny.

Just as those that led before us, we as a people, and electing body must stand for what is right in our country and decide what we must do. Shall we see our country slide into the abyss or make a much needed stand against a government that has grown way out of control. Patriotism and loyalty to our country are the only thing that will stand between freedom and tyranny. We must decide and soon what will happen to our country and our community. We must act now!

When you ponder what to do at the ballot box carry with you the same resolve that our forefathers carried. Realize the power you have and the decision making power you have. Because of them, you have the ability to restore our form of government and you can change our country drastically and emphatically with a pull of a lever.

Please don’t stop reading here! Please take a few minutes and read the document below and compare the events of 250 years ago and see the relevance to the situation we are facing today.

If our country can’t be changed by a vote, will another revolution be the answer? I don’t have that answer but the question is important.

While reading below, place your self in their situation and ask your self have we once again repeated history and allowed a King or Kings to be the ruling party in our country? The comparison of what they faced and our current situation is eerily close.

You have the opportunity to decide if your leaders are unfit to lead. You have that power, now exercise that power!!!

The Declaration of Independence in Congress
July 4th, 1776

When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

Dear Fellow Tennesseans,

I want to express great urgency in this letter to you. We are at an extremely volatile and pivotal time in our country’s survival. We are on the brink of collapse and the freedoms we now enjoy may be no more in the near future. Please continue to read and while reading be plotting out in your mind how you are going to spread this message to others.

This is not about endorsing a particular candidate. This is not about whether you are a Democrat, a Republican or Independent. This is about saving our country and getting our country pointed in the right direction again and quickly. It has to start with removing this sitting president from office with the power of the vote. Step 1 has to start with replacing Obama as our president, period. We must look at the most viable way, decide who that candidate is for this term and vote accordingly.

I have heard over and over I won’t vote one way or another or I just won’t vote. This is a pitiful excuse and by doing so allows the Obama regime another 4 years. We as Americans will continue to clean up this country after this election, but we must unite to save our country today, the here and now, in real time. We can start mapping out our future course the day after the election and hold the next President accountable as well and if he doesn’t fall in line we look at presenting a candidate for the next 4 years. A split vote or a no vote at this juncture will not be the best thing for our country right now.

Believe me, I too am all about getting sick of voting for the lesser of two evils. I too am sick of looking at the most viable candidate and holding my nose at the ballot. This dilemma is partially our fault because we have not spoken loud enough to make the needed change. We as Patriots have failed miserably to raise up a candidate from within our own ranks. We have also failed to support an alternative candidate into the Presidency. This election cycle has left me with a dilemma too but with much thought and internal strife I have come to the conclusion, Obama and his progressive communistic socialist type leadership has to go.

We must put our our full effort into this campaign. We need great numbers and alot of activity to get this man out of office.

Please pass this message along to everyone you know. Call, text, email or Facebook all your friends and tell them to get out and vote on October 17th, 2012! It’s the most important thing you can do as an American who loves their country.

You already know what must be done.

We can’t wait four more years..

To put people back to work
To pass a responsible budget and begin reducing our national debt
To drill for our own oil and gas
To restore respect for religious freedom and freedom of speech
To show respect to our allies overseas
To stop federal control of every part of our lives.
We can’t wait to elect a new president.

In Tennessee early voting starts on Oct 17th. Why wait to make your stand? Join us in sending a message to the rest of the country with these 3 easy actions.

The Tennessee plan that can be easily adopted by other states:

1.  Vote on October 17th, the first day of early voting in Tennessee

2.  Encourage your friends and family in TN to join you in voting on October 17th.

3.  Encourage your friends and family in other states to vote against the president as soon as their state allows.

On October 17th we will see you at the polls.

We Can’t Wait! 

Pass this along quickly!

UN connections to our community, it might surprise you

Every elected official should watch this video by John Anthony called “Agenda 21 for Public Officals.” It is a very simple explanation of how Agenda 21 has been brought to your community by these NGOs and how they are affecting your property rights and eventually your way of life.

Check out this video on YouTube:

NGOs, as explained and listed below shows you the massive involvement of the United Nations and the effort being exerted to completely transform our community.

Ask your self, “why are so many organizations partnering with the UN!” “Why in our community and in our neighborhood?” The answer is simple. Every community must have the infrastructure in place in every community in the world before a One World Government or a New World Order can be established. It’s a collaborative effort that is using common themes such as the eradication of poverty to promote social justice by redistributing the wealth of our country for the collective good of all!

The infrastructure, the growth plans, the right environment and a vast arrangement of people and organizations must be in place before the big plan is shifted into place. Pretty much the way I put a jigsaw puzzle together, fill in the borders then piece by piece fill in the middle till complete.

An NGO, according to the UN is an organization that is committed to the implementation of Agenda 21, a definition directly from the UNs Agenda 21 program.

Agenda 21: Chapter 27

STRENGTHENING THE ROLE OF NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS: PARTNERS FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
PROGRAMME AREA

Basis for action

27.1. Non-governmental organizations play a vital role in the shaping and implementation of participatory democracy. Their credibility lies in the responsible and constructive role they play in society. Formal and informal organizations, as well as grass-roots movements, should be recognized as partners in the implementation of Agenda 21. The nature of the independent role played by non-governmental organizations within a society calls for real participation; therefore, independence is a major attribute of non-governmental organizations and is the precondition of real participation.

I thought it would be interesting for you to see the United Nations influence on businesses and organizations that we in Bradley County are directly or indirectly involved with. This list is by all means not complete.

The circle of influence on our society is growing daily. This overwhelming influence leads me to believe there is a reason it is so saturated in our city and nation. The UN wants to control every aspect of our lives and eventually set up a New World Order under One World Government with a One World Religion as it’s base.

Simply not knowing or refusing to believe that your organization is not a partner is no longer an acceptable answer. The implementation phase is well under way. It is time and we must hold those organizations that have partnered with the UN on Agenda 21 to be accountable for our country’s demise.

Long gone are the days of arguing whether Agenda 21 exists or is being implemented in our community. We know that it is so we must stop it. If our elected officials will not step up and stop this then let’s step up and replace them with those that will.

A list of assorted NGOs participating in the implementation of Agenda 21 in our community. A few are indirectly involved with our County but the majority have direct NGO status or are heavily involved with NGOs that are.

For a list of NGOs, please see the link below:
http://unpan1.un.org/intradoc/groups/public/documents/un-other/unpan014562.pdf

If you want to further research whether a company has involvement with the UN, simply google the company and the United Nations in the same sentence or go to the UN web site at http://www.UN.org, in the top ti
right corner just put in the company, name of a person or anything you choose and read the articles that the UN has created that prove their involvement.

Have fun searching. It’s not hard or it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure it out or I would never be able to see the connections.

Lastly, ask these organizations listed above why they have partnered with the UN as an NGO. The first answer may be you are crazy and whomever is saying this should be ashamed. Some may say it is a tax break or the guys upstairs, higher ups must have did that but regardless it was done. At least you have exposed their involvement and now continued participation is advocating their association and makes them guilty of assisting in the insidious destruction of our country from the inside out all in the name of the 3Es of Agenda 21, Social Equity, the Economy and the Environment.

Show them the list or link provided or your own research and ask them to explain their involvement. I am afraid many will just give you that deer in the headlights look and say “What are you talking about?” Have fun with it and see how many times you can get that reaction.
