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 >>>

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.

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.”
OKLAHOMA CITY (Jan. 27, 2017) – A bill prefiled in the Oklahoma House would ensure utility customers could opt out of installing “smart meter” technology on their homes and businesses. Passage of the bill would allow Oklahomans to protect their own privacy, and it would take a step toward blocking a federal program in effect.
Rep. Scott McEachin (R) prefiled House Bill 1435 (HB1435) for introduction during the 2017 legislative session. The legislation would give residential and business utility customers the right to refuse installation of “smart meters.”

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.”
Citizen Involvement in the Legislative Process – January 28
The 2016 legislative session begins Monday, February 6, 2016 and we need to be prepared. There will be many bills that require our attention – being trained in how to be effective is necessary for success.
Amanda Teegarden’s Citizen Involvement in the Legislative Process training classes are in-depth working sessions.
1. Firing Government Nannies
2. Citizens Without Representation
3. Thrills & Chills Coming
4. Upcoming Programs
1. Firing Government Nannies. Not long ago we reported that Oklahoma City had banned pedestrians from using a public park. In the face of public outcry, the ban has been lifted. This is the correct outcome, and we applaud OKC for coming to the right decision in this matter of public property.
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.
Today at noon Eastern Time, Donald Trump will be officially sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America, with Mike Pence being sworn in as the 48th Vice President shortly beforehand. The Inauguration activities kick off around 11:30am ET/10:30am CT.
The video below is supposed to live-stream the Inauguration, for those unable to watch elsewhere:
To quote former President Gerald Ford from his inauguration,
“My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.”
Let’s pray that President Trump exceeds our expectations.

You who want to take from others by force to perform some “good” are promoting violence against your neighbors, your friends, and your families as well as those you dislike.
The “good” you seek does not wash away the violent means. It is not moral to take from others by force no matter that there will be some that benefit. It does not matter that you may not perceive the harm you are doing to others. It is there if only you are willing to consider.
To force others to labor for your desires is enslavement and theft no matter your good intentions.
This goes for all relationships, personal and otherwise, and yes, even governmental.
