Come Over To Rosemary's Thoughts

I have a migraine right now, so this may not be as creative as I would prefer. I am dropping my bid for Congressional District 37 so that I may support Star Parker. Yes, she is running! I am very grateful to her for letting me know so that I can stop my campaigning and put my efforts into her campaign.

I am somewhat relieved. I didn't know how I was going to overcome the distance between Long Beach and DC. Take a plane, you say? HA! Not on your life. ;)

If you are still interested in my opinions and military issues, please come visit me at Rosemary's Thoughts. If you are interested in a Tea Party, then visit Long Beach Patriots. This is the last post that will be posted here.

I'd like to thank all of you who have visited me. To all of you who have supported me (LORI), THANK YOU! Hugs. :)

Do me one last favor. Enjoy your lives. They are so short as it is, and we never know with each coming day which day shall be our last. Make sure you are right with God, love one another, be charitable, be cheerful, and take it all in so you enjoy it to the fullest. God bless you all.

I'll be on Blog Talk Radio Tonight

I will be on the radio, Blog Talk Radio, sometime today. It is scheduled for 8:30-10 pm central time. I think California time is 2 hours earlier than that, at 7:30.

I just received an e-mail from Twana letting Deb and me know that she will only be able to stay for 1/2 hour. She has a very important meeting to attend at 9 pm, so try not to be late!

I will be on with Twana from The Conservative Underground. Call in with any questions you may have. The number is (646) 716-4024. Looking forward to hearing from you! Have a great night.

Health Insurance Unconstitutional

This is one reason you should support me. This one of the many beefs I have with this bill. Below is an article which lays out the fact that you cannot 'tax' a person for NOT purchasing a product. I also believe that in a free country, you cannot force this same person to purchase something he may not want.

However this is only one of the many things that are wrong with this bill. The Democrats claim they will get rid of fraud. Um...they why don't they? They've been in power for over a year, and I have yet to read a report on even one case of fraud. Does doing the right thing depend on whether or not they get their way? This is not the way things are done in America!

Enough from me, read below.

"Individual Mandate" at Core of ObamaCare is Unconstitutional, New Report Concludes

Washington, D.C.: Arguments by backers of President Obama's health care proposals that the U.S. Congress has the constitutional authority to mandate that individual Americans purchase health insurance through the 16th Amendment to the Constitution, which permits the federal income tax, are incorrect.
So concludes a new "What Conservatives Think" publication, "Is a Health Insurance "Individual Mandate" Constitutional?" written by policy analyst Matt Patterson of the National Center For Public Policy Research.
Among the findings:
* Both the House and Senate versions of ObamaCare contain penalty taxes on Americans who do not have government-approved health insurance, the so-called "individual mandate."
* Such a tax would function as a direct, or capitation, tax, as opposed to a tax on activity, such as excise or income taxes, and would therefore fall outside Congress' authority to tax income granted by the 16th Amendment to the Constitution.
* The Constitution places strict restrictions on Congress' power to lay capitation taxes under Article I, Sec. 9, which reads "No Capitation, or other direct, Tax shall be laid, unless in Proportion to the Census or Enumeration herein before directed to be taken."
* Exemptions for some people built into the Senate bill's individual mandate tax would make it impossible for ObamaCare to meet this strict constitutional standard.
Says Patterson, "Some of the finest legal minds in the country have concluded that the enforcement provisions of ObamaCare's individual mandate would violate both [the] spirit and the letter of the U.S. Constitution. Apparently, President Obama and members of Congress think they are smarter than these scholars - and smarter than the authors of the Constitution."
"Is a Health Insurance "Individual Mandate" Constitutional?" is available online.
The National Center for Public Policy Research is a conservative, Constitution-respecting, free-market non-profit think-tank established in 1982. It is supported by the voluntary gifts of over 100,000 individual recent supporters, and receives less than one percent of its revenue from corporate sources
I don't know if there are enough Republicans with a backbone to stand against this loss of Liberty and take this to the SCOTUS should it pass. (Don't worry. It won't, but we still need your help. Keep those phones ringing!)

Why do I call it a loss of our Liberty? The larger the government, the smaller the citizen. We sent them there to represent us, not to tell us what to do and how to live. Once we give that away, we end up as slaves to the government. I don't know about you, but I'm not going for that!

This is why I am challenging my representative, Ms. Laura Richardson. She had the nerve to wait almost one year to write back to me about this health insurance, and it was clear she is not representing us. Let us come together this year, Republicans, Democrats, and Independents, and help me defeat her so we may preserve our Liberty. Thank you, and have a great week.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again. Digg! Digg!

Sacred Matrimony is Between One Man and One Woman

It seems as though it doesn't take much to anger this gentle soul anymore. With the homosexual society always in our faces trying to push their agenda on us and claiming it is the opposite, I've had it. There is no reason to speak with them because they are unreasable (I know not most of them!).

I do not bother anyone for what or who they are. I never have. When you cross the line and tell me that I have to accept your behavior or else, that's where we cannot go. This is America. Matrimony has been the rule for millennia, and you are not going to change it now.

In the first place, this is the first step in the destruction of a whole society. Don't believe me? Look at Rome! Many empires, countries, etc have fallen eventually due the fact that there were no more children. No children, no legacy; no legacy, no future.

That is, however, not the reason I bring this to your attention. They are at it again (still) in Washington, just as they are here in California. Please read below to see how 'nice' some of these homosexuals truly are.
Protect Marriage Washington Files Supreme Court Brief to Protect Privacy of Petition Signers.

Protect Marriage Washington filed its opening brief today in the United States Supreme Court case of Doe #1 v. Reed. Protect Marriage Washington sponsored a referendum in Washington and is asking the Supreme Court to prevent the state from releasing the names, addresses, and other personal information of more than 138,000 individuals that signed the petition.

The effort to place the names of the petition signers on the internet is the latest example of the campaign to harass and intimidate anyone supporting traditional marriage by making personal information available on the internet. Their efforts have resulted in death threats, physical violence, and property damage directed at individuals supporting a traditional definition of marriage.

James Bopp, Jr., lead counsel for Protect Marriage Washington, stated that “Public disclosure laws have been used to harass and intimidate voters. The First Amendment protects citizens engaged in political speech from being forced to reveal their identity to ensure that intimidation does not makes its way into the campaign toolbox. No one should have to endure death threats in order to stand up for what they believe in.”

On September 10, 2009, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington issued an order preventing the release of the names of the petition signers. On October 15, 2009, the Ninth Circuit issued a single page order allowing the release of the names. On October 20, 2009, the Supreme Court issued an emergency order preventing the release of the names until the appeal is decided.

The case is Doe #1 v. Reed. It will be argued before the United States Supreme Court on Wednesday, April 28, 2010. Protect Marriage Washington’s opening brief, along with the prior orders in the case, are available on the website of the James Madison Center for Free Speech, under the “Washington Referendum 71 Petition Suit” heading.

James Bopp, Jr. has a national federal and state election law practice. He is General Counsel for the James Madison Center for Free Speech and former Co-Chairman of the Election Law Subcommittee of the Federalist Society.
It is indefensible to me that someone would send a death threat for ALLOWING YOU TO LIVE YOUR LIFE, yet that's not good enough for you. I know for a fact that isn't everyone. I am angry over this. Take that whichever way you want. You should be ashamed of yourselves. Then again, you have forgotten what shame is a long time ago, eh? Yeah, I said it, I meant it, and I'm here to represent it. Now what?

Some people you just shouldn't ever make angry. Especially sweet little ladies. It isn't nice. Have a day. Digg! Digg!

Russell Opposes Shanksville Terror Trials

I am a member of the Russell Brigade, and I want to bring this to your attention. If you live in a small town, speak to your councilmember, assemblymember, state senator, congressmember, and both senators and let them know how gravely important is it to you that they do not consider your town for this absurdity. It was bad enough when they knocked down the Twin Towers, that field in Pennsylvania, and Pentagon; but they will never find peace in America.

For those of us who live in bigger cities, we are not free from this. We should also get on the phones and make our voices heard. This is a terrible idea.

Have you ever heard of a prison break? That could be when a prisoner goes to court and has his buddies outside waiting for him to enter the building. Do You want KSM wondering the streets of Your town? I know I do not.

Please read what Republican candidate for PA-12th district is proposing.

9-11 Survivor Calls on A-G to Give KSM Case to Military Tribunal

(JOHNSTOWN, PA) – Recent news reports have indicated that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is looking for a location less populated than New York City to conduct the civilian trial for 9-11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. One of the locations reportedly under consideration is Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. William Russell, Republican candidate for the nomination for Representative in the 12th PA Congressional district announced today that he is adamantly opposed to holding a civilian trial for KSM in the 12th district including Shanksville.

“As a survivor of the terrorist attack on the Pentagon on September 11th, 2001, I have personally seen the death and destruction brought on American soil by these evil members of Al Qaeda,” said Russell. “On that fateful day, my wife and young son were also at the Pentagon. I know what it is like to wonder if your family has survived an attack and I do not want any family in America to have to experience that, ever! As a former member of the military, and now as a resident running to be a member of Congress, it is my duty to protect and defend the citizens of this country and especially the 12th district of Pennsylvania.”

Russell also believes that the trial for KSM should not be held in a civilian court, but in a court of military justice. “Every man and woman serving in every branch of the service receives justice in the form of a military tribunal or Court of Military Justice,” said Russell. “Why would our President and Attorney General say it’s good enough for members of the American military but not good enough for terrorists? It’s an insult to brave American who has worn the uniform.”

Russell concluded, “I will do everything in my power to keep the residents of this area from the possibility of living with a target on their backs and to insist that Washington move the trial back to the Courts of Military Justice where it properly belongs.”

Free Speech RULES!

Great news for those people who own a corporation. Today a lower court ruled that corporations have rights as well as other citizens. Check it out.
Federal Court Extends Citizens United; Enjoins San Diego Law Banning Corporate Contributions to Independent Expenditure Committees

A federal district court today extended the principle of the recent Supreme Court case, Citizens United, to enjoin a law barring corporations from making contributions to independent expenditure committees. The court had earlier ruled that contributions to IE PACs may be unlimited.

Citizens United said that corporations have a First Amendment right to make independent expenditures. Today’s order uses that decision to allow corporations and other organizations to pool their resources with other people’s to make independent expenditures. Individuals and organizations are now free to contribute unlimited amounts for independent expenditures in San Diego, thereby exercising their First Amendment rights to the fullest.

James Bopp, Jr., lead counsel for the plaintiffs, said, “Today’s ruling reaffirms what the Supreme Court said in Citizens United: When it comes to political speech, the government must treat all speakers the same. It cannot discriminate based on the identity of the speaker, or because it doesn’t like a speaker, or doesn’t like the speaker’s message.” Mr. Bopp added that he believes this is the first decision to extend Citizens United’s ruling to allow corporations to contribute to independent expenditure committees.

The court had issued an order on February 16 partially granting the plaintiffs’ motion for preliminary injunction. That order enjoined enforcement of laws that prevented (1) candidates from spending their own money more than a year in advance of the election; (2) political parties from contributing to their candidates; and (3) committees from using contributions greater than $500 for their independent expenditures. It was unclear to the parties, however, whether the Court also meant to enjoin the law that prevented corporations from contributing to independent expenditure committees. The court issued this order today to make its position clear.

The case is Thalheimer v. San Diego, No. 09-CV-2862 (S.D. Cal.).

James Bopp, Jr. has a national federal and state election law practice. He is an attorney with Bopp, Coleson & Bostrom and General Counsel for the James Madison Center for Free Speech. He is also a former Co-Chairman of the Election Law Subcommittee of the Federalist Society.
Hat tip: James Bopp Jr.

Republicans, I must warn you not to be so happy about this. While it is good news for the rights of all citizens and they are getting back to the First Amendment, that does not mean they want to give their money to you! (Us.) All in all, I'd rather people have their rights than benefit us. That is my personal belief. However I certainly wouldn't complain if they set up a Friends of Rosemary Welch PAC! ;) Digg! Digg!

Friendly Hello

Hello. I've been busy trying to get a campaign manager, getting to know some people in the Republican party, trying to find NAACP (I missed the meeting because I couldn't find them), had a Tea Party, and a few other things I can't recall.

PLEASE HELP ME TO HELP US!

I do not have a lot of money, because I do not know (like) how to ask strangers for money. I remember when I was homeless over 22 years ago, I still could not ask people for money. Not even when I went for a week for without eating. However, I think I remember I had no shame asking for a drink...maybe that's why. I was ashamed then, so maybe I am ashamed now? Associated thoughts? Hmm.

Anyway, please help me by either contributing or finding a campaign manager who is good at this. (And is willing to work pro bono for a while.) Where did my savings go? Filing fees, cabs, DBA (doing business as), publishing, website (under construction), etc. This is expensive!

Well, not if you're an incumbent. I found out that the state is more friendly to those who already hold office. What the...? Does this mean we start off behind the starting gate? Yes, it does. Why do you think they ask your name and email address?! Oh well.

We can still show them in it not about the money when you are right. STOP SPENDING OUR MONEY. Period. Thanks. Digg! Digg!

A Tired American

My friend has sent me a link to this great video, and I would like to share it with you. It is about a man who is sick and tired of the people who blame this great country without recourse as if there was nothing to admire, hold up for praise, honor, and glory. Why don't you watch this video called "I Am A Tired American" and then we'll talk.

.

In case there is a problem with this video, you may watch it at NMA TV.

I understand this man's frustration. There are so many contributions that Americans, whether red, yellow, black or white (or brown), through their talents and sacrifices they have made to help create the most wonderful country in the world...ever.

When people speak of American, some people will say bad things about her. Then ask them would they rather live where they are or in America? Hands-down, they majority will say America! The people who live here now that would say otherwise, I truly do not understand.

Could it be our educational system? After 9/11/2001, many teachers were found to have said negative things about America. While we were all in shock, while we all came together for the first time in too long of a time, they were comparing us with these monsters! This is inexcusable to me.

I understand differing opinions. It wouldn't America without them. Gosh, it wouldn't be a family without them! How do you like having family get togethers for Thanksgiving, Christmas or Hanakkah, or the Super Bowl? (I know that isn't a holiday, but please forgive me. I'm going through withdrawals untl next August. *heh*)

So you see, no one agrees with anyone all the time. Wouldn't that be boring? Who would challenge you on what you think or believe to help you better defend it or change your mind? This is the fun part of learning. One of them, anyway.

But why do some people hate us? Because there is something wrong with THEM, not us. Remember this the next time someone tells you America sucks. If it were not for America, if America had never been, think of how many wars would have turned out the other way? WWI and WWII? Would the European continent be speaking French or German? Would there be peace in the world or more wars?

Sometimes we have to fight wars to prevent the spread of evil peoples' ideas and ideologies. We are called upon time and again to aid the poor countries. Countries that could prosper if their dictators would disappear and allow the common people to rule. Corruption is the destruction is the rule in many countries. Yet we are blamed for this. HUH? Then let them eat cake...but we cannot do that. We care too much about people.

Now am I speaking about the government or the citizens? The citizens, of course. Governments are something the people (in American anyway) have either created or have fallen captive underneath their oppression. Israel is not one of them.

Yesterday the man who was put in charge of finding out where the corruption was in the PA escaped for fear of his life after revealing the truth (something foreign to that part of the world). Did he flee to Jordan? No. Why not? It was closer? How about Syria? HA! No. Iran? Egypt? No. He fled to Israel. No matter what you think about foreign policy (should we be giving any country American tax dollars?), you must at least admit that Israel is not only an ally but a democracy and not a dictatorship. He knew he would be safe.

Back to America. If anyone has a problem with our Military, then they have a problem with me. The only reason you have the right of establishment of religion OR PROHIBITTING THE FREE EXCERCISE THEREOF, freedom of (POLITICAL) speech, freedom of the press, the right of assembly and to petition the government for redress of grievances, the right to own and bear arms, and all the the rights in our amendments is because these courageous young men and women are willing to do the deeds for you that you yourself will not do. Without them, we would all be slaves to another government. So don't ever speak down to me about our Military. Got it? I dearly hope so.

This certainly is a thought-provoking video. I was going to write a few lines aftward, but it now appears as though I'm ready to write a book! I shall leave with you this. I am proud to be American without hyphenation. We are all brothers and sisters. We have all our own struggles and wrong doings done to us and that we have done. But America is the land of second chances. Thank God! ;)

My Diary 2/15/10

Oh my goodness gracious! Thursday I went to Norwalk on the bus (3 to be exact), and I found out that I could not pay the fee until this coming Tuesday. Oh well.

I had also learned there is another person using the "Welch for Congress" website for his campaign, so I wanted to change my DBA (doing business as). When I went over to that part of the building, I learned that I'd have to pay another $140! Oh brother. I've received no contributions yet.

I think I'll pay someone to have a PayPal button put on this site. What's wrong with a blog? They're free, and I don't think the people of District 37 should have to pay for elegance for which they get no benefit. (This is free.)

Solution Graphics

Let's see if this works. I am going to create another page to include all contributions and how much they contributed. If you do not want to have name on this list, don't contribute. No favors. I want do them in Congress. so I'm not going to start doing them here! *heh*

I'll write more later. I want to add this to my page and my sidebar. I really need money since I am on a fixed income. I hate it, but that's another post. Have a great day everyone! I hope your Valentine's Day was loving. Remember, if you do not have someone right now, the Lord loves you and you should love yourself. That will be good enough for now, eh? ;)

Bill Clinton Hospitalized

Today former President Bill Clinton was hospitalized and underwent surgery for his heart. The doctor says that it was not a heart attack, rather it was discomfort. Clinton followed the doctors advice, and he did need one of his arteries re-opened. He will be able to return to work by Monday.

Many prayers and thoughts go out to the former president. Political parties aside, my prayers are with his family and him.

My Diary 2/11/10

Well, I have the schedule set for our next Tea Party. It will be on Saturday, 2/20/10. I had to reschedule because there is a Leadership Institute Training Weekend on the weekend of the 27th-28th. Then I have plans to attend the California Republican Assembly meeting on March 5-7. I'm hoping to meet some influencial people there that can help me with my campaign.

I thought I had someone to help with a campaign site and a paypal account, but he wanted $2000. I simply cannot afford to pay that much. Even if I could, I would not. That is what we call, Wasting Money. I can do most of the work myself, so why pay someone else to do it for me?

If anyone wants to contribute to me, they can reach me through my e-mail and get the instructions. There are many laws that have to be followed such as no corporations can contribute, it must be from a personal account, there is a certain limit to how much an individual or couple can contribute (have to find out what that is), etc. I know I can sure use those contributions. I haven't received any yet.

It has been difficult getting back the feeling of joy I once had. After I told my brother I would not run so he would feel better, he got sick again. We don't know if was because of my campaign or not. I did find out that Laura Richardson would run unopposed if I did not. I just couldn't let that happen, so I had a talk with my brother.

He is only concerned with my well-being. We played cards for a few nights. This was nice since we hadn't played cards together in almost 20 years. I was afraid to make any sudden attempts to start campaigning again in front of him. I still am. In front of him, that is.

I went to look for the money I borrowed to pay for the fee to become a candidate (it's been raining cats and dogs), and I found it missing. Not only that, all the money was gone! I'm going out of my mind trying to look for it. My brother let me borrow some money, but I have to pay him back. This is really bothering me, because I feel violated. Who could have come in here and stolen my money? It is not a very good feeling, not at all.

I am, however, ready to move full force toward victory in this race. Laura won this race by replacing Juanita when she passed away in office.

I've been watching the clash between the mullahs and the people of Iran, and I'm wondering where in God's name is President Barack Obama? He is supposed to be representing our republic and her people, and there is no way we would allow this type of treatment here. So why does he think it's okay over there? And he wants to have talks with their phony leaders after they have declared they are now a nuclear state? Not on my watch! Gotta go. Have a nice day, and be grateful for our Liberty.

My brother is feeling better and we had a talk. It appears he is still feeling a little woosy, so we determined it was not my campaign that was the issue. He gave me his blessing to continue the race for the people of district 37.

I will have more to post as soon as I get back in touch with some people. I hope you did not give up on me. He gave me quite a scare. I would not desert you if you gave me the honor of serving you.

It Has Been Fun

This shall be my last post here. When I woke up today I found my brother doubled over in pain due to the stress he was suffering because of my decision to run for Congress. I cannot endure the thught of making my brother ill. He is highly susceptible to panic attacks, and I just cannot do that to him.

I would like to thank everyone who has supported me so far. I may stay closer to home and try for a seat on the Central Committee. He believes I can better work there for our cause. While I disagree, I do understand his point.

I hope everyone the best. My thoghts and prayers are with you. (Yes, some of my dollars, too.) You will be happy to know that no one has contributed any money yet so I don't have to go through the pain of returning it. Wheh!

Now I have to close out everything. That should be fun. Not. I am so sorry because I really wanted to serve you. I suppose I still can.

I just never wanted to start this campaign without being certain I could carry it to victory. In a way, I have carried it to victory. I am putting my desires aside for those of my brother's health. God, please help my brother. Amen and good day.

My Diary Page 23

When I started to write this diary, I wanted to capture the events, emotions, etc., so that others may learn from my experience. I slacked off because it was a little difficult to piece things together each day prior to starting this diary. (I started on the 20th.)

Now that that's out of the way, today I went to the post office. It would have been easier if I had been an illegal alien! To be fair, I think that's because they would have known what to bring with them to get a PO Box.

I had my drivers license, a letter from the registrar's offices, voter register forms that were sent to me, a credit card, and yet I could not get a PO Box because I did not have a passport (I had my SS card with me), I am not a member of our armed services, and I don't have a car so I don't the registration for a non-existent item. That is all they would take for ID.

There was no way to prove to this lady that I am me. I even had the label for my prescription with me! (I am epileptic). Ugh.

I came home, ate two salads, and passed out. Let me explain about the two salads. My brother bought me some of that pre-made salad so you only have to add dressing and eat. I only put a little on the plate because I was so tired. I stayed up all night again, and I didn't want to fall asleep without eating.

After the first plate, it just tasted so good! So I poured some more onto the same plate. So actually, I only had one one salad. There is still some left over. I'll have that in a little while, maybe with some cottage cheese. I like the small curd, how about you?

I love it when you take a can of fruit and put it in the fridge, let it chill, then make two helpings with half cheese and half fruit in each. Mmm.

Lori is such a dear friend. She has been remarkable. She is helping me, and she is looking for a job at the same time. She is very good at graphic arts so if anyone out there is looking for a graphic artist, I highly recommend her! She is creating labels, brochures, and posters for me. They are fantastic!

I would like to ask a favor from my Christian and people of faith friends. Please pray for Lori's daughter and Lori. They were in an accident the other night. A stupid driver in a truck rammed them (I think) from behind. Now she also has no car. They are both (eh) okay. There is pain, but they are alive. Thank you for any and all prayers in advance.

I'm glad I got the diary thing straightened out. Now I can go on from here. Oh yes. I took forms 1 and 2 for the FEC with me when I went to Norwalk to file, and they told me I did not need them yet. Being me and not knowing how to do this, I had called everyone prior to then.

I called the FEC today to find out if was okay if I used a PO Box as my address instead of my address (don't have to worry about that anymore!), and the discussion of these forms came up. They told me I should return them PRONTO! Gosh, I'm glad I asked. *heh* Good night.

PS. I just noticed, it should say 'day' instead of 'page' in the title. I'll change that tomorrow. ;) Digg! Digg!

Counter Terrorism Threatened

There is some news I am bringing to you (through the Warrior Legacy Institute) which, if they have their way, could have very grave consequenses to our war against Islamic jihadis. Yes, I name the enemy, because I want them defeated.
January 18, 2010
The Legal Assault against our Counterterror efforts- Universal Jurisdiction & Targeted Killing.

The Warrior Legacy Institute has released it's latest paper "Universal Jurisdiction & Targeted Killing" which discusses our policy of killing known terrorists and the authorizations for this. One of our most successful tactics against al Qaeda has been the use of armed drone aircraft and if we are to continue this we need to make certain we are on firm legal ground. Congress passed an Authorization to Use Military Force against al Qaeda following 9/11 which gives legal standing within our own judicial system for these strikes. There are trans-national organizations that believe they have jurisdiction over our operations, such as the International Criminal Court and we need to establish that our inherent right of self defense as a nation gives us the freedom to attack enemies who represent a terrorist threat wherever we may find them. Recently the American Civil Liberties Union filed a Freedom of Information Act request for the legal justification of the drone strike program. This will not be the last challenge to this program.We suggest a treaty that enshrines such a right similar to pacts that recognize piracy as a borderless crime. Failure to do so could leave our forces in danger of actions from organizations that claim a Universal Jurisdiction over what they consider war crimes. Download pdf here.
We hope you will share this paper and video with your friends and family. This is an important issue that affects all of our brave troops and you can use this knowledge to be part of that discussion and decision.

Cordially,

My Prescription For Obama

I received this email a couple weeks ago, but it is so pertinent today. Please follow the link on this one. It will be worth your time.
Drug Store Stops Medicaid Drug Sales
January 08, 2010, 12:57 PM

Yes, this story is from the State of Washington--but it shows what is going to happen to seniors with Obamacare.

Under the current Medicare, doctors and drug stores are no longer taking new clients and ending sales and relationships with old clients.

Obamacare is going to cut, off the top, $500 billion from Medicare--meaning many more doctors and drug stores will stop supporting the Feds effort.

Plumbers get $65 just to show up at your door. Doctors, under medicare get paid $35 to have you sit on a table.

The Feds do have a plan to ration health care--less money, meaning fewer providers.

Obama does have a death panel--fewer providers of health care and drugs means fewer people getting life saving care--that is a death sentence--except for the rich--who BO is really representing.

Get angry, your life depends on it. Read More...
So we are supposed to believe there will be no death panels? Let me see if I can figure this out.

We start out with (let's say for sake of simplicity) 100 doctors and 10 pharmacies. Add to that 10,000 patients who are on medicare. That would make it - on average - 2,000 patients per doctor and 20,000 patients per pharmacist.

Now let's follow Obama's plan. Let's pretend that no one loses their job and all things remain equal. In the plan, the price per doctor is #35 dollars, and the pharmacist usually has to put up some of his own money becuase they don't even pay him at cost prices. (I can't price every pill.)

The government, your so-called friend, is going to reduce the amount paid to both the doctor and the pharmacist, because they have now added everyone to their coffers-er-bailouts-er-general fund. We now have 300,000,000 people plus living here. Eventually everyone will be on this government plan.

Now for this exercise, let's say that there are only 1,000,000 people. That would mean that only 10% of the people are currently on the plan. If the doctors and the pharmacists are not making enuogh money to cover their expenses now, what do you think would happen when 900% of people were thrust upon them?

Let me ask you one question. Why do you go to work? Don't you want to get paid? Why? You greedy sob! What? You mean you worked for that money? But you don't understand! That belongs to the government! It has to in order to pay for all the things everyone wants that they could buy themselves. Oh, I got off track? Yes, that happens.

Okay, the doctor has 2000 patients at $35 which equals $70,000. But wait a minute. There has been a cut in pay. I don't know how much, but let's say 20%. That would equal a $7 pay cut. ($35-7=$29) That would leave him $64,000. And he still has to pay taxes! Can he claim any losses? NO.

(Try to get a plumber to come to your house for $29!)

They make more than that now. What happened? Oh, these are medicare patients. It's amazing that my neurologist makes so much more than this. Most specialists do. They see people this way like they see cattle for sale. Ship 'em in, take a look, next! What happened to those nice doctors who used to come to my house to check up on me? LAWYERS.

President Obama. Your plan will destroy the will for many young people who are making up their mind whether to become a doctor or a politician. With the plan you put out there last night, it is better to work for the government? Like heck it is! STOP GROWING GOVERNMENT, and LEAVE OUR MEDICAL SYSTEM ALONE.

Already 45% of our doctors are ready to quit because they cannot afford to make a living on your plan. With 900% more need, 45% of the doctors gone, pharmacists closing, how do you expect to stay alive?

Yes, you brought change. Keep it. I'd rather have the dollars. Digg! Digg!

The 'State of the Union'

There were so many lies and absurdities in last night's SOTU that I had to take some time to cool off. It didn't work. How dare he blame President Bush for his mishandling of any issue over one year after he's left office.

But beyond that, the depression he has pushed us toward with his arrogant desire to force health care INSURANCE (to be bought by a private company which they are raising their prices so when there is a cost freeze, they won't be hurt) down our purses whether we want to purchase it or not. This is unconstitutional.

Some people say it is not, I disagree. Show me where it states in the Constitution that Congress shall regulate and dispense health INSURANCE. They certainly do not take care of our car insurance, and the state's mandate that we have that. Are they going to buy us the car as well? Ugh.

About homosexuals in the armed forces. Obama, put on a uniform please before you decide to change anything that has to do with the military. I trust the generals and the grunts who say it would interrupt cohesion. BTW, President BUSH successfully made that agreement with Iraq. For you to take credit for it just shows how little of a man you really are.

Any Republican and Democrat who cares about saving their skin should drop this whole farce of health care insurance and cap and trade (tax). It is nice to be able to tell people how to run their lives when you don't have to live under those same rules. You fly around on a jet that we pay for, you live in a house that we paid for, and you have the gall to talk to us as if we're idiots?

GLOBAL WARMING IS A SCAM. A political, money-making scam. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Bring Home The Politicians

As many of us have noticed this past year, it is very difficult to speak with our representatives when they are in DC. Aside from the fact that is difficult enough to speak to them when they are home. Maybe we can demand a day or two out of the week for us to be allowed to make appointments?

I can understand they have much work to do. After all, it is very difficult to destroy a nation without much effort.

This brings me to the point. I have a video which I think hits the nail right on the head. (I hope they're not kooky, I haven't heard anything bad about them.) Now for the video:

Here is the link to YouTube, just in case this video isn't working properly.

They have asked me to add this to my site (on the sidebar), and I am going to do just that. It is about time we caught up to the 21st Century. I hope you enjoyed the video. Please comment and let me know what you think. Have a great day.

PS. I found this juicy bit which makes me feel a lot better. Now I understand they're okay. Enjoy!

Free Speech 1, Tyranny 0

Today the Supreme Court of the United States has reversed itself yet again to allow incorporated groups to use political speech even days before an election. The Citizens United v. FEC case decision came down today, and it is great news.
James Madison Center for Free Speech
1 South 6th Street
Terre Haute, IN 47807
www.jamesmadisoncenter.org.

PRESS RELEASE
January 21, 2010

Contact: James Bopp, Jr.
Phone: 812/232-2434; Fax 812/235-3685

U.S. Supreme Court Embraces First Amendment in Case About Hillary: The Movie
Today, in Citizens United v. FEC, the U.S. Supreme Court protected the First Amendment right of citizen groups to engage in political speech, even if they choose the protections of incorporation. The case involved the ability of Citizens United to broadcast Hillary: The Movie.

The Court held that there is no corruption in assuming the corporate form, so incorporated groups could no more be prohibited from broadcasting their political speech than other citizen groups. The Court reversed its holding in Austin v. Michigan State Chamber of Commerce (1990) that “corruption” based on adopting the corporate form justified prohibiting corporations from expressly advocating the election or defeat of federal candidates. And it reversed its holding in McConnell v. FEC (2003) that corporations could be prohibited from making “electioneering communications” (broadcast communications that merely mention candidates near elections). As a result, many campaign finance laws—those based on rejected corporate-form “corruption”—are unconstitutional. The only corruption that can justify campaign-finance regulation is quid pro quo, i.e., votes for favors. The Court decided that Citizen United could be required to put required “disclaimers” on their electioneering communications and report expenditures for them.

James Bopp, Jr., who has litigated numerous campaign-finance cases, makes the following statement concerning the case: “We are pleased that the Supreme Court has reaffirmed the First Amendment right of citizens to participate in political speech. The Court guards the people’s self-government right to associate and speak, safe from incumbent politicians who dislike criticism and would silence it if permitted. This case reaffirms that the people are sovereign and require broad protection for their liberty to engage in political speech.”

Background

Citizens United is a nonprofit (§ 501(c)(4)) Virginia corporation founded in 1988. Among other activities, Citizens United produces movies. Some of its documentaries have won awards.

In late 2007, Citizens was preparing a feature-length (90 minutes) documentary, Hillary: The Movie. Citizens produced three ads to promote the movie. It filed suit because the ads would be broadcast during electioneering-communication blackout periods and name a candidate and so would be regulated as “electioneering communications.” In January 2008, the movie was released. It included interviews and scenes of then-Senator Clinton at public appearances. It was shown in theaters and sold on DVD. Thomas Nelson Publishers paid a royalty for book rights and published a compendium book. When Citizens United received an offer to broadcast the movie, it sued as to the movie because it was prohibited from broadcasting it by the prohibition on corporate electioneering communications.

A three-judge federal district court held that the public disclosure provisions were constitutional as to the ads and the movie. And it held that the movie was an “electioneering communication” and that the prohibition on corporate broadcast of such communications was constitutional. Citizens United appealed. After initial briefing, the Supreme Court ordered additional briefing and argument on whether the cases relying on a corporate-form “corruption” should be reconsidered.

Consequences

As a result of today’s opinion, substantial campaign finance regulations remain, but they are focused on the concerns the Court originally identified in the 1976 Buckley v. Valeo decision. There are still limits on the size of political contributions, in keeping with the Court’s concern about quid pro quo corruption. Gone is the notion that just because citizens incorporate they lose First Amendment rights.

Another result of today’s opinion is that many state laws patterned on now-rejected federal law are unconstitutional. States have even enacted laws going beyond what Congress has done, and these will now be clearly unconstitutional, too.

So-called campaign-finance “reform” groups will decry today’s opinion as allowing corporations and unions to have undue influence in politics and public life. But they fail to grasp the genius of the Framers of our Constitution. The Framers understood that in a free Republic the proper response to speech one opposes is speech in opposition, not opposition to speech. The Framers understood that layers of speech regulations and restrictions chill political involvement, so they forbade Congress to restrict speech and association. They did so to allow people of ordinary means to pool their resources and speak on the issues vital to them. The result of modern campaign-finance “reform” has been to make political speech available only to those who could hire expensive experts to guide them through the maze of regulations and restrictions, thereby cutting out the people of ordinary means. So ironically, it is not rich corporations and unions whose speech has been suppressed by purported “reform,” but the common folk, who cannot afford to hire the lawyers that the rich corporations and unions can afford. Today’s decision is a step toward returning to the day when any citizen can stand and speak her mind—without a second thought about complying with some maze of opaque regulations—because she is an American.

Quotes On Brown's Victory

Project 21 is a remarkable group that I've been following for several years now, and they are astutely aware of the political consequenses and/or gains in these days. Here is the email I received today dealing with Sen. Scott Brown:

Black Conservatives Comment on Brown Victory in Massachusetts

Washington, D.C.: Black conservatives affiliated with the Project 21 leadership network are speaking out about the stunning victory of Republican state senator Scott Brown over Democrat state attorney general Martha Coakley in Massachusetts.

Kevin L. Martin: "Scott Brown's victory in the bluest of traditionally blue states can only be viewed as a complete loss of confidence in the policies of the Obama White House and its allies in Congress. People have tasted the fruits of a government dominated by liberal ideologues and they've not found it to their liking. What remains to be seen is if this repudiation has been heard and understood. Will Obama, Pelosi and Reid see the writing on the wall, or will they continue their heavy-handed attempts to ram through their agenda against the will of the people?"

Horace Cooper: "Yesterday's victory by State Senator Brown is reminiscent of the upset off-year elections of 1994. Then, the Democrats could have seen the results for what they were - a repudiation of big government liberalism - but they refused. As someone who worked on the Hill while these races were happening, you have to wonder if this time they'll get the message before it's too late."

Bob Parks: "As someone who ran - and lost - in Massachusetts, it's great to see a conservative win there. While Massachusetts Republicans and independents can enjoy their well-earned opportunity to gloat, they can also revel in the fact they did the impossible in an impossible state. And let's hope leaders in Washington realize that the people responded to a conservative message - not one of moderation."

Ellis Washington: "In Massachusetts, the site of the first tea party in 1773 and the renewed tax revolts of 2009, citizen defiance may have saved our republic. The stakes could not have been higher for the Obama Administration and congressional liberals in this special election. This may be the day in which it is guaranteed that Barack Obama will be a one-term president. Scott Brown's election will help America take a giant step toward renewed freedom and liberty. It bodes well for renewing American exceptionalism, market capitalism and the protection of personal property and sacred inalienable rights."

Get Well Soon Charlie Daniels

This is breaking news from Yahoo News:

U.S. country star Charlie Daniels recovering after stroke, Reuters.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – American country music performer Charlie Daniel, whose hit "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" won him a Grammy in 1979, is recovering at home after suffering a mild stroke, his agent said on Tuesday.

Daniels, 73, was snowmobiling in Colorado on Friday when he suffered the stroke and was released from hospital two days later. He has no plans to cancel any upcoming concert dates.

"Charlie is doing well and looking forward to beginning The Charlie Daniels Band 2010 concert dates on February 27th in Ft. Pierce, Florida and February 28th in Brooksville, Florida," his agent said in a statement.

Daniels is behind a string of country and pop music hits that include "Simple Man," "In America" and "The Legend of Wooley Swamp."

"The Devil Went Down to Georgia" was included in the soundtrack of the 1980 movie "Urban Cowboy," which starred John Travolta and Debra Winger and in which Daniels also made an appearance.

Charlie, we all love you. We are praying for your health, your family and friends, and you. Please rest. I know you feel like a spring chicken, but please listen to your doctors! Get well soon dear. God bless you.

Time To Get To Work

Today is a good day. There was an election that did not end up in court and there was no mention of any injuries. It is sad when one has come to expect this behavior, but it was not that way this day. I am grateful for this. Mrs. Coakley was kind enough to concede shortly after the polls closed. That was classy.

I'm also happy because I live in a country where the people WILL rise up when the politicians go too far in either direction. Yes, all of those Tea Parties were not just a bunch of misfits who didn't like President Obama.

While it is true I do not like his policies or the way they keep Republicans out of all the writing of any bills, I do not know him. Therefore I cannot determine whether or not I like him personally.

I am not a Lefty. I do not hate people because they differ with me. If people didn't differ with me, how would I know if my ideas stood the test of scrutiny? It is good to debate. That is how we learn and grow. Staying convinced of that which is not true is only detrimental to ones self until you try pass bad law because of your belief.

Take for example cap and tax. Global cooling global warming climate change could mean anything. What happened? Why did they change from cooling to warming to climate change?

The climate has always changed. This is obvious. We call it winter, spring, summer and fall! Ah, but this is not what they mean. They are trying to use words that sounds politically correct but mean something quite different.

The so-called scientists who worked on the computer model have been proven frauds, and the Leftist Democrats are trying to move forward with this cap and tax bill anyway. Not so fast! Scott Brown won his election today, and he will help us to defeat this nonsense.

I don't mind if you believe in this. Do everything you can to help stop using carbon dioxide. While you're at it, stop breathing. Every time you exhale, you are spewing carbon dioxide. (CO2=1 carbon element+2 oxygen elements.)

This is what plants need to grow and expel OXYGEN into the air so we may breathe. But you go ahead and kill the trees and all our vegetation. That'll do us a whole lot of good. Feel a little silly do ya? No, I didn't think you would. *sigh*

How did I get onto this topic? Hmm. Anyway, I do feel joy and peace. I am encouraged to know that even in Massachusetts you cannot pull the wool over the people's eyes anymore. Thank God. If it can happen there, it can happen anywhere. There is hope, and the change is a'comin in November.

Please contribute to my campaign for US Congress CA-37. Ms. Richardson has ignored our petitions. She has ignored our calls. She has ignored our e-mails. She has ignored our visits to her office. Well she won't ignore us much longer. Not with your support and our message.

NO to their form of healthcare insurance taxation. NO to forcing us to purchase from private companies something we have the inalienable right upon which to decide to purchase or not. She is not our dictator. She is not representing us.

Yes, we can change this. We are going to bring balance and common sense back to Washington. There is no reason why we should stay there all year and fly back and forth on the weekends on the taxpayers dime. That is criminally immoral.

There are limits in our constitution, and they shall be enforced. Finally. What belongs to us and/or our state, the federal government can no longer take and has no say about how we run our Sovereign states.

There are many ideas that you have shared with me, and I have heard you. So have many of us Tea Partiers. Now it is time to put it into action. You asked us, "What do we do now?", "Where do we go from here?". We get rid of those who are not keeping their oaths by replacing them with us. Woohoo! It's gonna be a hot time in the old town in November! Have a great day. Digg! Digg!

Sen. Scott Brown Has Won!

Great job, Scott. Scott will now be the 41st Senator from Massachusetts, and he will take his rightful seat in the US Senate within the next couple of days because Coakley gave her consession speech. This means that there is no reason for anyone to contest the election results, so kiss it Reid and Pelosi!

Warden a no-show, police open machine
Posted on January 19th, 2010 by Robert Romano

By Andrew W. Griffin, Oklahoma Watchdog, editor

LAWRENCE, Mass. — At the Essex Towers senior public housing, voters are being allowed to vote despite the poll warden not showing up. According to a poll watcher for Republican candidate Scott Brown, a Lawrence Police Department officer unlocked the ballot box. This was observed by Americans for Limited Government, and Brown and Martha Coakley poll watchers.

The poll warden had taken a child to school, according to one observer. The police later opened a polling machine for a handicapped man. There was still no evidence of a poll warden one hour after the polls opened.

Andrew W. Griffin is the editor of Oklahoma Watchdog.

As I wrote yesterday about dead people voting, the Secretary of State William Galvin has refused to take this issue seriously. Apparently, the DoJ has found him guilty of not reporting how many absentee ballots went overseas and how many were returned. Our Military men and women along with others didn't get to vote in Massachusetts possibly. This is unconscionable.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day

Today as the rain pours down in California, let us take some time to remember and celebrate one of our own. Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. was a fascinating man to the millions of people, me included. It is a sad and cruel thing that he was assassinated in 1968, but let's look at all the good he did.

He was a very articulate speaker. He spoke as he saw things, and he knew much about our constitution. This worried many white people as they were still ignorant to the fact that black people have minds just as great and creative as theirs. Many white people, however, understood this in a good way and stood up for him and believe in his speeches, his religious teachings, his approach of non-violence, and much more.

These white people were Christians. We must, however, understand that the KK used religion as al Qaida is doing today. I don't want to make this into anything political, but the truth must be told. Most KKK members were Democrats, while Martin Luther King Jr. was a Republican.

If the video is not working properly, here is the YouTube link. Hat tip: superjsuh.

Many things have changed since the time of his murder, so let us not dwell on which party did what. I do not believe he would have wanted it that way. I know he certainly would Not have wanted all of his brothers and sisters to flock to one party or the other. He would want us to think and speak for ourselves and also to dialogue with each other.

He was a great man in my mind, and America is a better country for having Martin Luther King Jr. amongst us. Even if it were only for short while. Thank you, Rev. King, for opening up all those doors. Thank you for your persistence and knowledge and kindness and belief that one day, we would be able to stand together-hand in hand-and praise God for such a beautiful country and all of our blessings. Thank you for all of this.

Thank you for braving that frontier. Your work has been very successful. We still have a way to go, however. Some of the people who were with you have forgotten or have become bitter because of your assassination. Please do not be too disappointed. They loved you and your message. Have mercy on them.

When they realize the truth, when the scales off their eyes, we can once again climb to the top of that mountain and reach out to touch the Hand of God together. Until that time, I shall do my best to help restore your dream, our dream. God bless you, and I pray you are resting peacefully with God.

Happy Reverend Martin Luther King Day everyone. This is everyone's day of celebration, and don't let anyone tell you different. God bless.

District 37 Needs You

Good afternoon. I pray all is well with you. District 37 has an incumbant Congressman under indictment (innocent until proven guilty) and a challenger who has the philosophy of a strong defense, limited government, and free and fair markets. Life and Liberty are also importmant.

It is now time for us patriots to come together and fight back at the ballot booth. They won't listen? We will throw them out of office. They want to control our lives? We shall take back the LITTLE amount of control we delegated to them in November. They won't have the same insurance plan as they want to force on us? No way!

I am her opponent. This time you have a choice. Does this healthcare insurance worry or bother you? Does the process which the parties are using bother you? It should. Where is the transparency?

They had a conference yesterday on transparency with Vice President Joe Biden and the Democrats...behind closed doors. Huh?

Let's get to the point. I need 3000 signatures in order to wave the filing fee of $1740. If you can spare any time at all to help me gather these registered voters signatures who live in District 37, please email me.

I am grateful for all the support you have given me so far, but this is only the beginning. I've learned about many things that are being proposed in this so-called (non-)conference meeting, and it's enough to make ones head spin off. For example, they want to cut TriCare (healthcare for our National Guard vets), cadillac tax on luxurious healthcare plans EXCEPT for the unions, and more.

Please help me. We need to have this done by February 25 at noon. (Someone brought to my attention that this was the actually date and I told him he was wrong. I WAS WRONG, AND YOU WERE RIGHT. See? It isn't that hard at all to admit. haha) I will always be as honest as I can (except when it comes to national security or CIA issues, then I will let you know I cannot reveal what I know).

Let us get moving so we can send these money-grabbing, drunken spenders, corrupt liars on their way to the unemployment lines they helped to create!

I look forward to hearing from you. Have a great day everyone. Digg! Digg!

My Diary Page 9

I pretty much said it all in my post today. Please see Page 23.

Today on the Beat

Today I did so many things that I can't even remember what they were. I had to call several people, I know that. I called the CA Republican Party in LA, the IRS, the Registrars office, the RNC, and a few more people. I've also put in a call in to the NAACP, but there has been no return call as of yet. I think I'll call them again.

I also filled out some more forms today. It's kind of weird. One section tells you that you don't have to, the same section a little bit later says you do. Well, I filled them out anyway. With the IRS, it's always better to have done the paperwork and be wrong than the other way around. Hey, I'm an accountant, I trust my judgement on this. haha

I stayed home today. This is the first day all week I've been home. My brother needed someone to be here. I finally confessed to him that I have decided to run for office, and he already knew. It's very hard to keep anything from him. He's good!

He didn't want me to run for office, because he believes I can do much more with my blogging and activism. He doesn't want to see me get dragged through the mud and hurt. I can understand this, but he really shouldn't worry too much. I've never felt more alive, more energized, because I am finally going to do something about the problems we face rather than just write or complain about them. Yes, I do believe it takes a servants heart to be successful at this. This is something I pray I possess as much as I need.

I know I have a servants heart when it comes to people as a citizen. Our prayer request list grows everyday. Please help me to remember to always have a servants heart. I'm counting on you guys to help keep this gooook off me that they seem to have in Washington. Yuk! Please be my fellowship partners. I will need you more than I need your financial support.

Oh, btw, I'm going to the Post Office tomorrow to get the PO Box so you may start contributing if you so choose. I am going to need a lot of money, and I really don't like to ask but I must. If I cannot get 3000 signatures in a short period of time, I will need to pay $1,740 to have my name on the ballot.

If anyone has any suggestions as to how to get the press involved, my ears are wide open. I've called, written, etc. Maybe if I get those signatures...I need the numbers of the people who vote in our district. Maybe I can get the signatures that way? I was thinking of hitting the schools in my district. Maybe some of the Churches also.

Right now I'm just rambling, because there is so much on my mind. Thank You, God, for the internet! What a wonderful thing it is for us to express our thoughts and share them with others. Thanks for taking the time to read it. God bless, and have a wonderful day. Digg! Digg!

My Diary Page 8

I probably shouldn't have, but I stayed home today and tried to catch up on my emails and blogging. I sent out the news to the members of the Long Beach Patriots through emails. I probably should have said that. Oops.

It felt good to sit down for a minute. I know this takes a lot of energy and energy I have, but I just wanted to sit down and take it all in. This is not something I will be able to do after I get my candidacy filed.

I am going to have to set up some fundraisers, but how? Who do I know? That is why I called about the list of registered voters. They are going to send me something to fill out, and that costs bucco bucks. Should I try calling LB Republican Party again? They haven't answered my last 2 calls. Nor has the LA County called me back. That's quite alright.

I may not be rewarded anyone, but I sure am keeping score. The Republicans are just as responsible for this fiscal disaster as anyone else. They started it by signing into law (President Bush) the TARP. While he did leave at least half of it, $350,000,000,000, for President Obama, we were calling like crazy telling them not to do it. *sigh*

We have been feeling abandoned by the Republicans anyway. We in the Tea Party are Conservatives, Liberals, and Independents. You cannot put us in a box, we won't allow it.

Oh, I went shopping today for 3 dresses. I figured I should have them for when I need to look proper. *heh* I usually wear jeans. If men can wear them while they're campaigning, so can I. I just won't wear them at a fundraiser or a social function where I'd feel more comfortable in a dress.

My brother went with me to show me where the good stores were. It was pretty cool. We found this cute little thrift store. What? You thought I was going to spend a lot of money on myself? I don't do that. I don't see the need to do that. Except when it comes to shoes. Hey, we've all got to have the one item right? That's mine.

He knows. Someone called me back when about the something, and he overheard me say, "I have to be quiet for a minute. My brother can hear." He said, "Hear you talk about your campaign?" I almost dropped! I was so relieved! We talked, and he decided I should go for it.

I guess it is because he has noticed the calm I have felt ever since I made the decision. Oh, remember I said I was supposed to go to Norwalk to get those registration forms? I forget them. Remembered everything else but those! Ugh. Now I have to wait for them to get here before I can gather signatures. I don't want anyone to have the excuse that they are not registered to vote. *heh*

Rep McClintock Endorses Citizen Power Initiative

REP. TOM McCLINTOCK ENDORSES
THE CITIZEN POWER INITIATIVE TO FIX CALIFORNIA
.

Tustin, CA [January 14, 2010] - California Representative Tom McClintock today announced his endorsement of the Citizen Power Initiative, a proposed ballot initiative that will ban the practice of allowing taxpayer money to be funneled to politics through public employee unions’ paychecks.

The Citizen Power Campaign (www.UnplugThePoliticalMachine.org) is currently collecting signatures to qualify the Citizen Power Initiative for the November 2010 ballot. Proponents have until mid-April to render nearly 700,000 valid signatures to the Secretary of State.

Tom McClintock, who represents California’s fourth congressional district, said, “The Citizen Power Initiative is absolutely necessary to bring real reform to Sacramento. People on both sides of the aisle know that public employee unions have too much power in Sacramento and stand in the way of real reform. They have that power because they have a special privilege no one else in politics has – the ability to automatically take money from their union members’ paychecks without their permission and use it for politics. This initiative will stop that automatic flow of money by simply taking the state out of the business of collecting political contributions on behalf of union bosses.”

“Restoring power the California’s citizens through the Citizen Power Initiative is our Number One priority in 2010 and Tom McClintock’s endorsement proves his commitment to stand on our side,” said Mark Meckler, one of the measure’s five proponents who as the California co-coordinator and a National Coordinator for the Tea Party Patriots.

THE CITIZEN POWER CAMPAIGN

The Citizen Power Campaign combines grassroots taxpayer organizers, retirees, and political veterans. The initiative’s official proponents are Mark Meckler and Dawn Wildman, California’s Tea Party Patriot state coordinators; Larry Sand, retired public school teacher and founder of the California Teacher Empowerment Network; Allan Mansoor, Costa Mesa Mayor and Orange County Deputy Sheriff; and Mark Bucher, Orange County attorney and author of the 1998 ‘paycheck protection’ initiative, Proposition 226. The Lincoln Club of Orange County, a group of about 200 business owners and executives who believe in limited government, lower taxes, and the promotion of free enterprise, has been an early supporter and financial contributor to the Citizen Power Campaign.
