Any up to getting the VRTLA recognized before the Hearing Committee of Congress? To address an issue that has suffered onto the People of the Commonwealth wrongful evictions and foreclosuers which, as yet, has not been recognizea as being done with criminal intent, or the sufferers bieng victims of crime?

Like you say Greg we lost the attorney general s and the governors office to a very close vote. We would have won the govenors race if it had not been for obozo paying a libertarian to run with no intention of winning but just taking votes away from Cuccinelli, the sad thing is that this man let himself be bribed by obozo.

The Hard part Is most people feel there vote does not or even Is not counted! I vote but have not convinced my wife to vote. We lost the Att. General office by what 800 votes? if 1,000 more people had voted we would have won!

Greg Swartz just said the reason why Republicans keep losing in the presidential vote and any other vote for that matter. It is because nobody gets out and votes. I bet that less than 10 percent of the population actually votes and with the democrats constantly cheating no wonder people are discouraged. My wife and I never miss a vote no matter what and this is the attitude republicans need to take that their vote does count but it will not unless they actually get off the damned sofa and vote.

To the Tea Party

My name is Greg Swartz. I am a simple Blue Collar Middle Class worker from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I have become politically active in the last few years prior to that I did not follow or even really care about what went on. I now read your post on face book and other media, I very concerned with the direction this country is going. I fully stand behind the “15 Core Beliefs” of The Tea Party. I do have a few thoughts that I hope will help advance The Tea Party if they are addressed properly.

The first thing that needs attention is getting people to vote. I think you will find a lot of people feel this way… “We The” middle class hard working but broke “people” feel we can do nothing to get our country back. The working class feel they can’t out vote nor out spend big business or the multitude living off the government. Then there is the Voter Fraud with dead people voting, there are more dead then alive so how can we out vote them? Miss counting, the Electoral Collage, bought votes etc. We don’t stand a chance so why bother to vote?

Then there is the general opinion that all the candidates are Liars and Crooks so what difference is it who gets the office? The special interest group with the most money will buy their votes any way! For 150 Years “We The People” have been loosing more each election to Politicians that were put in office by Big Money and promises. Then the promises they made are half kept, while behind our backs they do there own agenda.

So what can we do to get more people to Vote?

1. Some how we must convince them there vote counts.

2. Convince them that the candidate will do there Job.

3. Inform them better about Candidates. The Facts and not propaganda!

4. That there is Hope for this Country!

So here are a few of my own thought.

I love your post on Facebook they are funny and entertaining. Some of them have links to a page with all the facts about the subject! They should all have a link to the facts! We the people are bombarded daily with Half truths twisted to sway the reader! We all know the media does this and more of us would like the whole story so we can make our own opinions.

The Tea Party should put a little more focus on local elections! These are people that are known to the voters. When they get a office then they should endorse candidates for state that they know etc. up the line. States need to stand up to the Federal Government Not bow down to it! I know this is the job of the local Tea Party group. We need to be pushing hard on State Governments To Make it illegal to enforce Obamacare and federal Gun laws. All states need to reword there constitutions making themselves back into sovereign states the way they were intended to be in 1776!

This Last thought is just a personal opinion but I don’t think I’m alone in it! It might be helpful to stop making reference to Mr. Lincoln as a great president in some of your post. True Southerners have a much different opinion of Mr. Lincoln. We would say Mr. Lincoln started this mess we are in today. He blatantly disregarded the constitution of the U.S. on several issues! He lied to the People read his first inaugural speech, his second and then read Gettysburg address? Enough on that as I don’t want this to be History lesson but focused on “what can we do to save our Country!”

In closing I fear that the Federal Government as it is will Self Destruct in less then 25 yrs, Unless It is fixed fast. Some people feel this may be the best thing to start over with the original Constitution! There is much work to be done to preserve the local and state Governments so there is not complete mayhem if the Federal Government does collapse. The local and State Governments per the Constitution should be stronger then the Federal government so I feel we need more focus on them.

"Hello" to all my fellow Virginia Patriots!!  Together, we will stand and fight to restore our communities, State and Federal government to fall in line with the Founding Father's concepts of fiscal responsibility, limited government and personal responsibility and return the United States of America back to its true greatness.  I am proud of all willing to stand up and make this happen.  God bless you all.

ALERT ALERT

OMG!! -> Government Now Wants To Seize Your Car For Going 5MPH Over The Limit

We’ve discussed this on and off for several years now. Civil asset forfeiture is a legal process that allows the government to seize assets and cash from citizens without any due process or judicial oversight.

You don’t even have to be charged with a crime. You are assumed guilty unless you can somehow prove your innocence.

Of course, not everyone has this ability… if you aren’t local, state, or federal law enforcement, this is called stealing, and you go to prison.

But the government is actually a bigger problem than common thieves.

A 2015 report showed that law enforcement used civil asset forfeiture to steal more from US residents than every thief, robber, and burglar in America combined.

About $4.5 BILLION worth of cash, cars, homes, and other property is taken by civil asset forfeiture each year – hundreds of millions more than common criminals steal.

And it happens at every level. Your local cop can use civil asset forfeiture just like your state trooper. And then any one of the armed agents of the US government—from the FBI to the Fish and Wildlife Service—can rob you for whatever reason they want.

This travesty continues to grow because the cops who take your stuff get to keep it. Police departments and government agencies around the country depend on civil asset forfeiture to boost their budgets.

Cops will literally keep some of the cars they take as squad cars. And they make a fortune auctioning off the houses, boats, and anything else they confiscate.

Obviously this gives cops an incentive to steal, whether or not they actually think the property was used in a crime, or acquired illegally. Remember, civil asset forfeiture adds billions every year to their bottom line.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case of civil asset forfeiture.

Tyson Timbs was convicted of selling a small amount of drugs to an undercover police officer. He was sentenced to house arrest, and paid about $1,200 in fines.

But then police used civil asset forfeiture to take his $42,000 Land Rover which Timbs purchased with money from a life insurance policy after his father died. The money did not come from selling drugs, or any other illegal activity.

Timbs sued, and the case made its way to the Supreme Court, because every lower court in Indiana said the forfeiture was perfectly legit.

The case revolves around whether or not the seizure of the Land Rover was an excessive fine under the 8th amendment, and whether or not this protection against excessive fines applies to state governments.

And the public got some crazy insight into the government’s position.

The Indiana Solicitor General was arguing in favor of civil asset forfeiture when Justice Stephen Breyer asked him a hypothetical.

Breyer asked, if a state needs revenue, could it force someone to forfeit their Bugatti, Mercedes, or Ferrari for speeding? Even if they were going just 5 miles per hour over the speed limit?

And the utterly appalling answer from the Indiana Solicitor General was, yes.

That’s right… the official government position is that they can steal any amount of your property in “connection” with any crime whatsoever, no matter how trivial the crime may be… even exceeding the speed limit by 5 miles per hour.

This is how overbearing and authoritarian the government has become in the land of the free.

This is how much power your local cop has… and the power only grows as you go to state, and federal officials.

If there is any solace in any of this, it is that the other Supreme Court Justices were reportedly laughing at this exchange.

The justices seemed incredulous that Indiana’s top lawyer was using such absurd assertions and flimsy reasoning in his arguments.

So, for now, we can keep our cars if we get pulled over for speeding. But that may not always be the case…

Depending on how this is ruled, it could pave the way for even more egregious abuses of power… or it could curb the practice, and reign in these thieves in uniforms.

Just understand where the government is coming from. These politicians, bureaucrats and officers think they can do whatever they want. Absolutely anything goes, with no limitation whatsoever.

And that makes it a little tough to feel like you really live in the land of the free.
