OK, yes, I have been at this for a while but I started young! Philosophically I am a conservative, limited government freedom lover. I was a co-founder of R3publicans in 2008 (after the Ron Paul campaign). OKGrassroots and Constitutional Liberty Coalition arose out of local coalition efforts and teaparty efforts in the 2009/2010 timeframe. I live in Oklahoma now, but I grew up in Texas and was a cofounder of Associated Conservatives of Texas in the 90’s. We launched the Traveling Liberty Bell there with my good friends the Halls. Ring the bell whenever you get the chance!

Together we are working to restore the republic and proclaim liberty throughout the land.

For Life and Liberty,

We Are Seriously Not Having the Right Conversation!  It is the Spending Stupid…

Color me livid. We have lost before we even get started if we don’t correct this matter.

Let me see if I can show you how this game actually works.

Case 1: I say lets cut taxes 20% and you come back with how about 10% and we settle on 15%. You think you won because we cut taxes a little. Spending wasn’t reduced one iota in this scenario! The revenue will have to be raised somehow by this generation or the next.

Amount saved 0%

Case 2: What if the opening gambit had been let’s cut spending 20% and you come back with how about 10% and we settle on 15%. In this scenario we both won and spending was actually reduced a little right here and now.

Amount saved 15%

Do you see the difference? Please think about it. Please shift the conversation. Talking about taxes is a trap and you loose no matter what the compromise position is.

Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas, current National Director of OR/OSA states, “Looking back on how the Lord has used this ministry, we rejoice in the thousands of lives that have been spared, the souls that have been saved, like Miss Norma, and the many death camps that have been shut down. We pray the death of Roe (Miss Norma) prophetically signals the death of Roe vs. Wade. May the destroyer of men made in the image of God be destroyed in Jesus’ mighty name!”

Sincere advocates of liberty need to travel a tough and rugged path. Surrounded by the darkness of empire and its draconian reach into all aspects of our lives, champions of liberty must keep their eyes on the prize without becoming despondent.

This can be challenging in a society that has come to rely so heavily on the state. The ideas of liberty are hardly ever considered an option. Often they’re even frowned upon.

earth-sun-space-public-domain-700x400A draft of the summary statement that will be released at the conclusion of the 70 nation conference in Paris on Sunday has been leaked.  As you will see below, this communique is going to call for the division of the land of Israel, for the establishment of a Palestinian state, for the 1967 borders to serve as the basis for final negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians, and for the condemnation of any officials that refuse to support a two state solution.  Of course this comes on the heels of UN Security Council Resolution 2334, which many believe represented America’s greatest betrayal of Israel.  Israeli government officials are publicly warning that there is a possibility that the principles agreed upon at this conference may form the basis for another Security Council resolution before January 20th, and this is something that we should all be watching for very closely.

Editor’s note:  It is definitely time to pray!  

In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all the nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. I will enter into judgment with them there regarding My people and My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; they have also divided up My land.  

Joel 3: 1-2

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Tuesday, U.S. Senator Rand Paul reintroduced his Federal Reserve Transparency Act, widely known as the “Audit the Fed” bill, to prevent the Federal Reserve from concealing vital information on its operations from Congress. Eight cosponsors joined Senator Paul on the legislation.

Representative Thomas Massie (KY-4) has introduced companion legislation, H.R. 24, in the U.S. House.

Drain the Swamp by John Stossel

Drain the Swamp!
by John Stossel

President-elect Trump says he’s uniquely qualified to “drain the swamp” in Washington, D.C. He can do it, he said at one debate, because as a businessman, he understands American cronyism. “With Hillary Clinton, I said, ‘Be at my wedding,’ and she came to my wedding. You know why? She had no choice because I gave.”

He said that’s why he gives money to politicians from both parties. “When they call, I give. And when I need something from them two years later, three years later, I call them. They are there for me!”

That’s crony capitalism. Ideally, laws are applied equally; no one gets a special break because he gives money. But today’s complex government allows the politically connected to corrupt … most everything.

The 2016 Election: A Victory for Middle American Values?

The election is over. Trump has won. Celebrities are running for the hills, rioting and protests have broken out in major population centers across the country, and I heard from a friend watching, that a talking head at Good Morning America (the Thursday after the election) felt the need to explain the vote as a reality not a nightmare.

Trump, trumped Clinton – there’s no way around that. With the media projecting Hilary as the winner most of last year and throughout the night – even after he took Florida – it was clear by Wednesday morning that the media, liberal America and the celebrity class were shocked beyond reason at the result of this election. I’m not surprised – their total inability to understand the thought processes and lives of middle America represent a majority of reasons for the outcome of this election.

For several days now I have been wanting to do a post on judicial retention in Oklahoma. Sadly, I was never able to find the information that I wanted to do a post I would have been satisfied with. It is election eve and many of you have already voted in early voting. I apologize for that, but this is all that I have found. My summary version on how I plan to vote is that at the moment of writing this Hudson is the only one I plan to vote to retain. My general philosophy is “When in doubt, vote them out.” Hudson was the only one I could find any philosophical reasons to support him. OCPAC said,

He was recently appointed by Gov. Fallin to the Criminal Court of Appeals. Hudson appears to be a serious Christian, and everyone consulted gave him very high marks.

You can often tell a little about the judicial slots by who appointed them and that tells you a little about the current problems we face (that information on appointments is documented in the Sooner Politics article referenced below.

The best article I found was published by OCPAC. The section on judges is reprinted here:
