controversy surrounding the confederate flag: by Will

There has been a lot of recent controversy surrounding the confederate flag. We are in the process of removing it from all public display, use, sale, and possession.I must point out that this fervent activity is about much more than removing this one symbol from public life. This is merely the opening pretext that will be used by radical historical revisionists for removing other symbols of our American history and culture.There are now calls for the cleansing of the American flag from our…See More

MAY TEA PARTY MEETING SUMMARY by Tim Lintz

LAPEER TEA PARTY MEETING SUMMARY by Tim Lintz

LAPEER TEA PARTY MEETING SUMMARYOn April 7, 2015 the Lapeer County Tea Party held its monthly meeting at 7:00 PM at Maple Grove Church on Maple Grove Road in Lapeer. It was an exciting meeting with two guest speakers, State Senator Phil Pavlov and State Rep. from the 82 District Todd Courser. Both men spoke before an audience of over 80 people. They each talked about what was going on in their area of government (Senate & House). They spoke about their personal position on issues coming to…See More

MICHIGAN IS TAXED ENOUGHT by Carol Brown

March 31, 2015 Michigan is Taxed Enough AlreadyThe television advertisements make it sound like Michigan Ballot Prop 1 is Michigan’s last chance to fix our roads. It uses dishonest language to deceive us into thinking the gas tax will be eliminated. It does not say it will be replaced with a higher wholesale tax that Concerned Taxpayers of Michigan estimate will raise gas prices by about 10 cents a gallon, raise state sales tax to 7%, raise vehicle registration taxes and increase our federal…See More

VOTES WON'T BE FORGOTTEN by Carol Brown

Disappointment does not begin to express my feelings about the amnesty issue facing our nation. When the Mulvaney/Salmon/Brat amendment was introduced to the CRomnibus spending bill that would block funding for President Obama’s amnesty policy, I was hopeful & encouraged that a solution had been found to stop our tyrannical leader from being able to implement the immigration amnesty law. My hopes were dashed to pieces when the House Rules Committee blocked all amendments including the…See More

Thoughts On The Ferguson Issue by John Lengemann

             "A man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest" wrote Paul Simon over 30 years ago in his song "The Boxer."  That describes much of what's taken place in Ferguson, Missouri.              From the time Michael Brown was killed until now the media, the President and the protesters have heard what they wanted to hear.  From the beginning the media [principally the left wing leaning media] told a tale that fit the template it sees as emblematic of America; ie, white cop…See More

Elections have consequences by Terry martin

Elections have consequencesIn 2009 President Obama famously told Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a private meeting that “elections have consequences” referring to the 2008 election when Democrats won the White House and majorities in both the Houses and Senate. Unfortunately we have witnessed the consequences of that election for the last six years with devastating results.Where's the story?6 Points MentionedThe first and most obvious consequence was Obamacare which was forced…See More

The election is finally over by B. T.

The election is finally over. The votes have been counted and more importantly the phone calls have stopped.There has been a lot of discussion about the meaning of the results. The obvious answer is that the people do not like the direction our country is heading. If they did, they had the opportunity to grant one party control of all 3 branches of government. The results are most likely due to the electorate becoming uncomfortable with the extent to which the political direction has swung to…See More

America’s People Must Stop Illegal Immigration by Carol Brown

I see illegal immigration as an economic fairness and rule of law problem. Our economy is slightly improving, but there are more people who are under-employed because of Obamacare and economic hardships in America. The thought of bringing even more people into the country to compete for jobs that Americans here are still having trouble finding is very troubling. What is happening at the border, the way people are coming across, ignoring the rule of law and being unfair to those who have…See More

We’re Dragging Anchor

                                                        We’re Dragging AnchorThe nightmare continues as the current administration’s flawed ideological approach to world affairs brings us ever closer to disaster. Much as a large ship dragging anchor in a storm, the United States drifts ever closer to the rocks and could ultimately wind up in the Sargasso sea of the failed nations and empires of history. The United States has suffered through poor leadership many times before, but never to this…See More

Oservations From Europe by John Lengemann

Oservations From Europe Listening to the news on BBC, Sky News and CNN Europe you obtain a different take from what you get by listening to those who cheerlead for the administration in the United States. There is little support for Obama’s policy against ISIS and for any intervention in the Ukraine. However those who live in the Baltic States such as Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia are extremely fearful of what will be the next shoe to fall. With populations that are at a minimum 25% Russian…See More

conservative policies at the state level by: Bill Thomas

Time To Unite

TIME TO UNITEI think it's time to stop all the angry talk about who won in the primary election and who didn't. I would also hope the talk by some to not vote at all, or vote for the other party, is just emotional talk. Everyone needs to remember they are voting for their party’s platform and the importance of supporting their party. If you don't vote, or decide to vote for the other party out of spite, your real wishes for the direction government should go could be lost. Isn’t it the basic…See More

PLEASE VOTE by Tim Lintz

Posted on May 1, 2015 at 11:50am 0 Comments

PLEASE VOTE

The polls open on May 5th to vote on Proposal 1.  This proposal will determine if the sales tax is raised from 6 cents to 7 cents in Michigan.  If you think this will never pass, don’t count on it.  One of the problems is when people think like that and don’t bother to go to the polls to vote. Those in favor of it passing are counting on it!   The fewer people going to the polls may just pass this bill. 

There are so…

Proposal 1 Road Funding by Larry Leidline

Posted on May 1, 2015 at 11:42am 0 Comments

My opinion on the Proposal 1 Road Funding is that it is not a road funding proposal and does not even meet the criteria as a well thought out proposal. It is up for vote because Lansing could not agree on funding and left it up to the voters. Further, it represents a failure of the Governor and Legislature to do the job they were elected to do. Only a slight majority of the $2 Billion it raises goes to road funding, parts of this proposal go to increased educational funding,…

Modern Political Conservatism: A Preliminary Obituary

 First, let me describe what I believe to be traditional or true political conservatism.  True political conservatism has five core principles: (1) Respect for the Constitution and its literal interpretation, (2) Limited federal government and respect for state’s rights, (3) Fiscal responsibility - low taxes, balanced budget, and low debt, (4) Individual liberty – defense of the Bill of Rights, and (5) A strong military.  The word conservatism, of course, may also apply to religious and moral…See More
