OKLAHOMA CITY – A state lawmaker will lead an anti-war rally on the south steps of the Oklahoma State Capitol at 7 p.m. Friday, July 12. The public is invited.

The rally’s theme is “Not Our War!” and will be held to reflect the views of those who oppose U.S. intervention in the Syrian civil war, state Rep. Paul Wesselhoft said.

“The U.S. has no political or moral obligation to intervene in Syria’s intractable civil war. It’s none of our business,” said Wesselhoft, R-Moore. “Our involvement in shipping arms to the Syrian rebels commits us to a proxy war with Russia. This is not good, not wise, not acceptable, so we object.”

Wesselhoft said the rally will be bipartisan in nature. Musical entertainment will precede the speakers from 6-7 p.m. There will be co-sponsors representing both the left and right political spectrum. Each spectrum will be given equal time, he said. Wesselhoft hopes the Oklahoma rally will spark similar events in other state capitols and Washington, D.C.

“I went to the Wagoner County GOP monthly meeting on Thursday night to see what Barresi could possibly say to defend or sell Common Core to the public. Luckily, this was a group of very informed, anti-common core voters who had done their research. She spent a good 30 minutes on “fake fluff” – really avoiding the details of Common Core and speaking in generalities on how great it was. I could tell the audience wasn’t falling for the usual politician talk. We were asked to write questions down and submit them to be answered to keep the crowd under control since this is a very controversial topic.

As we scream and yell and show our outrage about the unconstitutional spying on Americans by the Obama administration we as Republicans should take a moment to look in the mirror.

Which of our legislators supported the laws that gives the presumed legal right to spy on us?

Who among us was outraged when President Bush was using the same or similar spying with his warrantless wiretapping in the name of security?

We have to be better than only being outraged when it is the “other team” doing the wrong.

“There are people who think that plunder loses all its immorality as soon as it becomes legal. Personally, I cannot imagine a more alarming situation.” Why is it that actions that are illegal and universally accepted as immoral suddenly, as if by magic, regarded as both moral and legal by many of our fellow citizens …more

The Case Against the Federal Student Loan Program

If you haven’t already heard, most federal student loan rates are set to go up soon. Scheduled to double from 3.4% to 6.8% on July 1st, both parties have treated the issue more as an opportunity for leverage than an opportunity for any well- or even moderately-informed debate. And with little chance of seeing any …more
