I have witnessed dawn at night, driving through Buffalo. Massive fire line moving southeast. Much loss for friends of ours.

Statist politicians are too easily convinced of their own brilliance when it comes to “managing the economy”. They don’t seem to realize that the economy is us. The economy is made up of people, and those who would try to manage the economy through government force will always do so by trying to control people. #MakeMarketsFreeAgain

Don’t you wish the elections only happened once or twice a year and not when only a few people know they are happening so they can foist their will on the rest of us? And just to make matters more confusing – some areas have an election and some do not. So do your own research and be sure (see link below and at the end of the article)
Here’s a list by county so you can see if you have an election in your area >>>

We must reform civil asset forfeiture. Innocent Oklahomans have been subjected to the unconstitutional seizure of prope…
As we prayerfully prepare for another legislative session we cannot help but think of our schools, teachers and students and the fiscal challenges our school districts face. About 65 percent of your property tax funds the public school system. Since the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority does not pay property tax, for every home and business the OTA acquires, public school funds are lost, further worsening our current budget crisis.

With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men who have been made in God’s likeness. My brothers, this should not be. Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water. James 3:9-12
Isn’t it interesting how good and evil can come forth from the same mouth? One minute we are praising God and the next we are cursing or tearing down our fellow man. Out of the same mouth that praises God comes insults, cursing, slander, gossip, etc., etc. The Bible tells us that this should not be. It also tells us that the tongue is very difficult to tame and control. I believe, though, that with God’s help, it can be tamed and controlled.

It would seem to be a no brainer, that your representatives assigned to various committees would actually consider the bills brought before them. However, ask any activist involved for more than one cycle if you want to hear the war stories!
The House officially convenes on Monday, February 6, and their first order of business will be to adopt the rules which will govern how they operate for the session. On that day, a representative will propose the adoption of the “Open Government Rule,” which states, “A bill shall be heard and receive a vote in committee if the primary author requests it in writing; and a bill, having passed committee, shall be heard and receive a vote on the House floor if the primary author requests it in writing.”
A good start on Day 1″Also in the cross-hairs are pseudo-“free trade” regimes such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). ObamaCare is also on the chopping block. And the border will be brought back under control, the White House said. How much of Obama’s largely unconstitutional “legacy” will be undone, and how quickly, remains to be seen.”
In the last 2 years, we’ve worked to get more nullification bills introduced – and PASSED – than at any time in our history.
Since 2006, we’ve taken a stand for the #Constitution, and will continue to do so every single day going forward.
It is a few months after the election; do you know where your freshman legislator is?
Sending your naïve conservative hero off to the legislature is similar to sending your precious, innocent college freshman off to a liberal university.
You are turning him loose to the wolves.
You have done all you can to raise him up and prepare him for the real world, but you will never know how he is going to respond to all the pressure and temptations that come with his new life away from home and the people who helped him get there.
How will you know where he is, and the decisions he’s making, when you aren’t there to hold his hand?
