  • Code Words to Remember:

    Public-Private Partnership = Government-Sponsored market, opposed to a Free-Market.

    Program =  the ever expanding role of government intervention, opposed to Limited Government

    Incentives = unequal treatment under the law, a tax policy that panders favors to special interest supporters, social and corporate welfare, penalizing productivity and rewarding dependency as opposed to Fiscal Responsibility


  • Mr. Moffett made a good showing last night as the Tea Party candidate! Congratulations to Mr. Williams. Flat Tax or Tax Reform sounds like two good issues for Kentucky. We are so tired of Fiscally Conservative speech, but Fiscally Spendthrift actions.

  • Hello, Just joined the group here.

     

    We are organizing in Columbia, KY in opposition to local County Tax Issues.  We all know, All Politics are local.  Focusing on local taxation here, we can learn from other counties to avoid the same pitfals. 

     

    Would like to hear from others and thier concerns.

     

    Thanks for having me!

  • Interesting question, no matter your political persuasion...





    OK, this is beyond the 'birthers' questions.
    This is just plain old common sense, no political agenda for either side.

    Most citizens of a country and especially American citizens know a lot of people- people they've grown up with, went to school with, worked with, partied with. Heck, we even about famous people's habits and ways- that Andrew Jackson's wife smoked a corn cob pipe and was accused of adultery, that Lincoln never went to school or Kennedy wore a back brace or Truman played the piano.

    Good grief, we are Americans!
    We are known for our inquisitory (nosy) nature.

    Yet THINK ABOUT THIS:
    None of us know one single personal fact about the history of Barack Obama.
    Honestly, it bothered me for a long time that no one who ever dated Obama ever showed up during the presidential campaign.
    We saw his charisma cause women to be drawn to him so obviously during that campaign, hard to believe one would have missed the opportunity to tell us about dating him.
    We all know about JFK's magnetism. McCain was no monk. Palin's courtship and even her athletic prowess were probed. Biden's aneurisms are no secret. Look at Cheney and Clinton - we all know about their heart problems and certainly speaking of
    the opposite sex- how could we not remember Wild Bill before or during the
    White House?

    But no, not one lady has stepped up and said, "Barack was so shy" or "What a great dancer!!"
    IT GETS WORSE.
    No one he ever went to any school with anywhere remembers him.
    No One !!
    No classmates, not even the recorder for the Columbia class notes, ever heard of
    him.

    Who was the best man at his wedding? Start there.Then check groomsmen.

    Then get the footage of the school graduation ceremony. Any one of them.
    Has anyone talked to the professors?
    It is odd that no one is bragging that they knew him or taught him or lived with him.

    When did he meet Michele and how? Are there photos there?
    Every president gives to the public all their photos for their library.
    What has he released? Nothing.
    Doesn't this make you wonder?
    Ever wonder why no one ever came forward from President Obama's past saying they knew him, attended school with him, were his friend ??
    Not one person has ever come forward from his past at any level.

    VERY, VERY STRANGE..
    This should really be a cause for great concern. To those who voted for him,
    you may have elected an unqualified, inexperienced shadow man. Did you see a picture called The Manchurian Candidate?

    Let's face it. As insignificant as we all are, someone who we went to
    school with remembers our name or face, someone remembers we were the
    clown or the dork or the brain or the quiet one or the bully or something
    about us.

    George Stephanopoulos of ABC News said the same thing during the 2008
    campaign. He questioned why no one has acknowledged the President was in
    their classroom or ate in the same cafeteria or made impromptu speeches on
    campus.
    Stephanopoulos also was a classmate of Obama at Columbia - the class of 1984.
    He says he never had a single class with him.

    Since he is such a great orator, why doesn't anyone in Obama's college class
    remember him? And why won't he allow Columbia to release his records?

    NOBODY REMEMBERS OBAMA AT COLUMBIA

    Looking for evidence of Obama's past, Fox News contacted 400Columbia
    University students from the period when Obama claims to have been there-
    and none remembered him.

    Wayne Allyn Root was, like Obama, a political science major at Columbia who
    also graduated in 1983.
    In 2008, Root says of Obama, "I don't know a single person at Columbia that knew him, and they all know me. I don't have a classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia - EVER!

    Nobody recalls him. Root adds that he was also, like Obama, "Class of '83
    political science, pre-law" and says, "You don't get more exact or closer
    than that." Never met him in my life, don't know anyone who ever met him. At
    the class reunion- our 20th reunion five years ago- who was asked to be the
    speaker of the class? Me.
    Why not him?
    Because no one ever heard of Barack!
    Five years ago, nobody even knew who he was. The guy who writes the class notes, who's kind of the- as we say in New York- 'the macha' who knows everybody, has yet to find a person, a human who ever met him."

    Obama's photograph does not appear in the school's yearbook and Obama
    consistently declines requests to talk about his years at Columbia, provide
    school records, or give the names of any former classmates or friends
    while at Columbia.

    NOTE: Root graduated as Valedictorian from his high school, Thornton-Donovan School, then graduated from Columbia Universityin 1983 as a Political Science major in the same class in which Barack Obama states he was.

    Some other interesting questions:

    Why was Obama's law license inactivated in 2002?
    Why was Michelle's law license inactivated by Court Order?

    It is circulating that according to the U.S. Census, there is only one Barack Obama but 27 Social Security numbers and over 80 aliases.
    WHAT!! ?
    The Social Security number he uses now originated inConnecticut where he is never reported to have lived.

    No wonder all his records are sealed!

    Please continue sending this out to everyone.
    Somewhere, someone had to know him in school - before he "reorganized" Chicago & burst upon the scene at the 2004 Democratic Convention and made us all "swoon" with his charm, poise & oratory pizzazz.
  • hello all I've been suporting teaparty movements just never really join a group . many things are coming down the turnpike and must be stopped or there will be no country for our children GOD BLESS ann
  • Well, the Nation's leadership for the next two years is in place or soon will be. Tremendous strides were made by conservatives. I can only hope that those put in their present seats/positions do not forget who put them there, and for what reason. They are there to be OUR voice in the D.C. If they don't continue to speak our language when they get to the D.C. we will need to take note. Senator McConnell, please take notice. You don't own the seat you're sitting in.
  • Band together and unite, is that clear enough?
  • it's time to strike legally

    No wonder Castro likes Obama ......DUH !
    They are great 'bed-fellows.'
  • The Big Question: What Is The Tea Party Movement, And Could It Change US Politics?

    Why are we asking this now?

    Scott Brown, the shock Republican winner of the special Senatorial election in Massachusetts to choose a successor to the late Senator Edward Kennedy, is America's latest political sensation. But the most significant recent development in US politics is the emergence of the Tea Party movement, a populist organization that contributed significantly to Brown's victory, and which is reshaping the country's political landscape. And rest assured that the Tea Party presence will be felt and heavily influence the November mid-term elections.

    As the Chairman of the Kentucky Tea Party allow me to quote from the Declaration of Independence…

    …”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.”

    How did the movement begin?

    The name, obviously, derives from that most celebrated anti-government insurrection in American history, the Boston Tea Party of December 1773. But its re-emergence in the early 21st century dates back several years".

    The name caught on, and Tea Party groups took root across the country. In April 2009, Tea Party members staged anti-tax protests across the country. During the summer they held rallies that often drew thousands of participants, aimed in particular at the Obama healthcare plan, the emblem of all they revile. The climax was a demonstration on the Mall in Washington on 12 September, described by supporters as the biggest conservative protest in modern American history.

    So they are conservatives?

    A majority of Tea Party members are conservatives however the number of moderates joining their ranks is growing at an unprecedented rate. Tea Party members are defined less by what they are for, than what they oppose: runaway government spending, high taxation, and large deficits, government control, epitomized by Obama's healthcare reform and the $787bn stimulus package. It is also a cry of fury by average Americans suspicious of pampered elites, and disgusted by bailouts of the undeserving. These range from those who stupidly buy homes they can't afford to greedy Wall Street banks and incompetent, eternally loss-making car companies. Tea Party members also oppose immigration. But there's a powerful libertarian, anti-establishment stake in the movement as well. In that sense it appeals to independents, who refuse to align themselves with either established major party.

    How big is the movement?

    Since it's a movement and not a structured party, it's hard to say. But by any loose definition there are millions of them. Indeed, an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll two months ago suggested the Tea Party might be the most popular political organization in the land. Over 40 percent of voters had a positive view of it, compared with 35 percent for Democrats, and 28 percent for Republicans. For now it can be safely said that the Tea Party is the third largest political organization in the United States and continues to grow at an unprecedented rate.

    But it surely benefits the Republicans?

    For the time being, yes. But most importantly it must be recognized that, more than anything, the Tea Party is "anti-Washington" – and Washington right now is run by Democrats. Republican leaders like to feel that they can ride Tea Party energy and anger to big gains in November's mid-term elections, but must recognize that Tea Party members, by and large, clearly recognize both existing political parties as intrinsically corrupt organizations. Tea Party members want to bring power back to the people, where it rightfully and legally belongs. Politicians need to be removed from politics. For now at least it can be fairly stated that Tea Party members are carefully scrutinizing each candidate, regardless of party affiliation, and voting the for the person, not the party. After Massachusetts, Democrats are petrified that this grass-roots fury could topple dozens of their Congressional incumbents.

    But could Republicans be hurt?

    Wiser heads in the party are alive to the danger. Right now, as one senior Republican Senator puts it, there is a "convergence of thought" between Republicans and the grass-roots activists "that will be a catalyst to send more conservatives to Congress". The danger, though, is that the Tea Party will push Republicans so far to the right that it will become unelectable. In a closely watched special election last November, Tea Party and other right-wing activists effectively split the Republican vote, handing Democrats a Congressional seat in upstate New York they hadn't won since the Civil War.

    In Florida, Tea Party hostility could doom the quest of Charlie Crist, the state's popular governor, for an eminently winnable Senate seat this autumn. The risk is that across the country, moderate Republicans like Crist could face primary challenges from conservatives, pushing the party further right. And if, and when, Republicans do win power again, they will be in the incumbents' hot seat.
    So the Tea Party will remain a movement?

    Being at the forefront of Tea Party planning, I think that the movement will eventually become a political party unto itself. But for the immediate future it will remain as a political activist organization. That way, it can remain above the sordid political fray in Washington. Its lack of a detailed policy agenda will, if anything, broaden its appeal, while the establishment of a leader and an internal bureaucracy might create the impression that it is just another party – as corrupt, selfish and petty-minded as those that are so grievously failing the country now.

    So will the movement last?

    Yes...
    • American voters are unprecedentedly angry and thus open to Tea Party structure
    • The two major parties have lost touch with the national mood
    • Populist movements have a long history in US politics

    Want change? Try these solutions.

    Each political candidate is given their rendition of changes he wants for America.

    Here are a few that the Tea Party Members believe all Americans want:

    • Limit Congress from serving more than two terms.

    • Stop Congress from voting for their own raises and benefit packages.

    • Stop paying for lawmakers’ high-priced insurance premium. Make them pay for their own insurance coverage just like the other citizens of our nation.

    • Stop paying lawmakers a full salary after serving just one term, or at retirement. We need to get rid of this ridiculous pension plan; they’ve let other companies get rid of theirs. You are lucky to get 40%-50% of your salary after working somewhere for 35 years, but they get their full salary and benefits.

    • Make Congress pay into the Social Security system. They make the laws for it. If they spent some of their own money, they might be interested in making it solvent.

    • Stop handing out aid to illegal aliens. If we did, then Medicaid and the Food Stamp Program would have enough money to aid the aged and the poor citizens of our nation.

    • Secure our borders. Crack down on illegal immigrants residing within our nation.

    • Stop allowing babies born to illegal aliens in the United States automatic U. S. Citizenship.

    • Stop the abuse of our overly benevolent Welfare system. We feed children free meals three times a day until they are eighteen. Churches give away good, clean, clothes. Companies buy and donate school supplies. Emergency rooms provide healthcare at taxpayer expense and the Food Stamp Program is buying food at home. What are parents doing for their own children?

    • Develop and implement a system that cross-checks social security numbers with fingerprints to stop fraud on many fronts. Use the system on voter registration as well as at the polls.

    • Stop bailing out mortgage companies and banks and give loans to people who cannot afford them.

    • Stop companies from paying CEOs and other executives’ outrageous salaries and bonuses while doing away with workers’ pensions.

    • Stop all unnecessary spending so that we will have money for our Nation’s security, and to help the truly needy and elderly Americans.

    • Stop permitting anyone to have a photo with their face covered on driver’s licenses. Stop issuing driver’s licenses and for that matter any other form of identification to illegal immigrants.

    Only members of Congress can do this, as they are lawmakers.

    I don’t believe Congress is interested in changing anything, do you?

    Let’s join together and support change that we can really believe in… Help us to take the periods out of U.S. leaving US, We the People of the United States of America…
