Lapeer County Tea Party Patriots Response to the County Press Wall Street Protest Editorial

The Lapeer County Tea Party Patriots Leadership, in response to a recent County Press editorial, makes the following statements. First, we categorically reject the notion that the comparison of the Tea Party Movement to the Occupy Wall Street Protestors is in any way significantly similar. The small number of protestors, the nature of the protest, the obvious organizational and financial support from specific radical groups, the lack of specific values and issues, the disregard for…

Tea Party is the foundation for change (County Press Viewpoint)

 

The debate over raising the debt ceiling and the subsequent downgrade of the credit rating of the United States has given rise to certain commentary that, while interesting, is fallacious. I have heard and read what essentially amounts to blaming both political parties. If one argues that both political parties contributed to the creating of the unsustainable debt, it is a fair argument.

Both parties spent money like a sailor on shore leave. However, I believe it is not…

Response to local misinformation in the Lapeer County Press

  In Wednesday's edition of The County Press, Lynnette Burns stated that she hoped the Tea Partiers were happy with themselves and that the rich are richer and she is poorer.  Well Lynnette, I hate to tell you but after the recent passage of the “debt crisis legislation”, we are ALL poorer.  This legislation was not a win for anybody except those that are not truly serious about moving this country out of debt and onto a path of economic…

Make pie better

(From the County Press"In Your Words" page and Lapeer Tea Party member Roger L. Ruhmann )

Setting political garble aside, we sometimes find that simple solutions are not without merit and work just fine. Every household and business at one time or another is forced to examine their books (so to speak) and turn-around management firms are experts in finding solutions to either a negative or eroding bottom financial lines.

Engine of Prosperity?

So, the administration comes out and tells the world the US economy is no longer capable of leading economic recovery? Thanks for the honesty Tim Geitner; howevewr, that is your job. Or, under this administration, is it? Could it be any more obvious that their goal is to bring the economy down and to insure world redistribution of wealth. Is this not treasonous? What will it take to wake up people If they are so brazen as to say it publicly, what is requred to get people to understand and…

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
