A Message we should Follow next year … Election 2012


This is a great message for all Freedom loving Americans from Zan Green of the Rainy Day Patriots.  The Tea Party has been hit hard and it would seem that the air has been let out of the cause which is right and just.  Please read this letter and get ready for the battle next year.  It’s for your Country, your Children’s and your Grand Children’s.  Do not give up with excuses but prepare for the greatest battle of the Tea party.



Fellow Patriots,


As another year closes, it might seem that the war we are fighting for our personal freedoms is being lost, and that those who want to crush our still young country are the ones winning. Although it has been a long hard slog, a brutal battle against the never ending political attacks and the sing-song chorus of the left-leaning media’s distorted messages, we the people still stand defiant.

There is a desperate need of a strong leader who can be entrusted to lead our country. So with trudging determination, and an indomitable spirit with unflappable energy, the Tea Party must continue to step up; leading in small groups, often unfunded and in an unorganized fashion, but leading all the same. We must succeed where the elected officials have failed. Remember George Washington crossed the Delaware on Christmas Day, cold and with little hope.

We face the same tyranny, the same usurpation of our liberties.  It’s almost Christmas and we face this coming New Year with challenges, high hurdles, and more battles. The war will be won, we will Restore our Country.  We are Tea Party, and we will accept no less.  George Washington gave hope and a renewed morale with his Christmas Day Miracle.  Let us renew our spirits, our commitment, and our energies.  Let us restore faith in our movement and our mission this Christmas Season.  Let us look forward to the New Year with positive energy and determination to solidify our Liberties and recapture our Beloved Country.

We have no other option; we have no mission more important.  We have no one else to look to, no George Washington to cross the frozen landscape in our stead. We are the ragged army, the shoeless soldiers; we must be the ones to take the lead, the determined, and the miracle makers.


To you and your family,


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Is the Social Security tax holiday good or bad?

Commentary by Stewart Topping December 22, 2011

As I was researching the Tax holiday Bills in Congress I did it with the purpose of trying to understanding whether there was more to the difference of opinion that I could not see or hear. 
Today it is hard to trust any party or any Politician because it seems that a lot of politician are clueless on the workings of socialism and will say anything to get re-elected, pass any legislation, and yes to go home for Christmas.

The one thing politicians are good at is talk but with little or no action at all, just enough to please the majority.  Some politicians make a good case that we should be like being Robin Hood, take from the rich and give to the poor.  I call that wealth distributions, or how does President Obama say it; spread the wealth.  It is part of the platform of socialism.

Hopefully the new Tea Party elect-tee in the House will over time make a difference.  We must give them time and elect more to the Senate and House.  It may be our only hope.  Senator’s McConnell, Brown, Snow and yes Senate McCain are examples of progressive Republicans. They neither like the Tea party nor for what it stand for.  Why should we listen to them?  They have done nothing to cut the debt of our Country or stop spending

The battle over the Tax Holiday is a great example of what’s wrong with Washington. The House Republican Tea Parties are trying to make a stand.

What is deep down under the noise we hear?  

  • The Senate bill does not pay for itself. 
  •  The House bill does pay for it self by cutting spending.

So who’s looking out for us, I think in part it is the House Bill and the Tea party Republican.

Read the following comment made on the issue, looking at the bill itself.

Lots of debating and maneuvering with the social security tax holiday set to expire. Is it a good thing or a bad thing? Since social security benefits are based upon what you actually made and paid in isn’t it shooting yourself in the foot down the road? The less you pay in the less you will get. Sure it puts a few more dollars in peoples pockets right now (which is absolutely needed) but whats the trade off?
Is this how they (both parties) plan to shore up social security by reducing the amount of future payments to eligible retiree’s? Government actuaries are paid to calculate things such as life expectancy and projected benefit payouts years down the road. Have they calculated an estimated payout at present rates and future rates? Of course they have.
This tax break will affect the American citizens spending ultimately once retired. Personally I would favor leaving the social security tax rate alone and reduce federal wasteful spending and reduce the income tax rate to give people the extra money now. Just seems to me they have us cutting our own throats with this one.

What say you?

Elections 2012

Obtained at the Tea Party 911 website;

We are at a pivotal point in American history, and the 2012 elections could possibly be the most important elections in our lifetime.

The stakes have never been higher. The liberal agenda is progressing at an unprecedented rate, and it will be full steam ahead until these out of control senators and congressmen are removed from office and replaced by men and women of integrity.

This is where the Tea Party Movement comes in. When choosing candidates to support, we must be extremely careful and choose candidates whose values align with our own. Our three main issues of concern are fiscal responsibility, limited government, and free markets.

On average, government worker wages are 35% higher than their private sector counterparts and also have a 69% greater benefits package.

The national debt is now over 14 trillion and growing daily. Does this sound like fiscal responsibility? Federal, state, and local governments now employ over 23 million people (not including military personnel), and is the fastest growing job sector in America. Does this sound like limited government?

The federal government is now the owner of or directly involved in the banking industry, the automobile industry, and the healthcare industry. Now on the agenda for the EPA in an “end around” of Congress are the cap and trade regulations which would amount to the largest tax increase in America’s history.

Does this sound like free markets?

This has got to stop!

We have got to replace these politicians who will say and do anything just to get elected.

We need elected officials who actually have honor and will do what they say and not make promises that they can’t keep just to get elected. Tea Party members, please look at the individual and not a party. Be informed about the candidates and know where they really stand on the issues. Your vote in the 2012 elections could be the most important vote you cast in your lifetime and may determine the course of America for generations. Choose wisely. Read More at http://www.teaparty911.com

Gingrich Wins Tea Party Straw Poll

Monday, 19 Dec 2011 11:17 PM

By Newsmax Wires

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich scored a huge victory Monday, winning a key straw poll of Tea Party supporters.
The poll, taken among 23,000 Tea Party enthusiasts organized by the Tea Party Patriots, one of the nation’s biggest Tea Party organizations, had Gingrich winning with with 31 percent of their vote, registered in a conference call on Sunday night.

Coming in a close second was Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, with 28 percent. Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, pulled 20 percent; former Sen. Rick Santorum, 16 percent; Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, 3 percent; Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, 2 percent, and Jon M. Huntsman Jr., 0.3 percent, The New York Times reported.

The results come as Gingrich is seeing some of his once-formidable lead slipping away. In some recent polls, he is either slightly leading in Iowa or behind Paul.

The candidates, who spoke in succession, were asked 10 minutes’ worth of identical questions, all of which assumed agreement in the premise of the question. For example, all were asked how they would repeal President Obama’s health care law — not whether they would repeal it.

Gingrich said he would ask the House and Senate to pass legislation to repeal it and move the bill in time so that he could sign it on Inauguration Day. He said he would ask all House and Senate candidates who are running to pledge in advance to vote for repeal.

Romney said he would issue an executive order to grant a waiver to each state. For states that did not accept the waiver, he would introduce legislation to repeal it.

Bachmann said she would campaign for those candidates who pledged to repeal the health care law and argued that waivers would not work.

Santorum, meanwhile, said he would use the budget reconciliation process, in which only 50 votes in the Senate, not a supermajority, are necessary to pass a budget, which could be stripped of all health care spending. “Gut it,” he said.

Rep. Steve King, a Republican and tea party favorite from, told the listeners that so far, he was disappointed in the field. He lamented that none of them had “articulated the depth of the financial problem we’re in.”

Richmond Tea Party says city audit is harassment

By Steve Szkotak November 29, 2011 7:22 am

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – The Richmond Tea Party said an audit by the city is retaliation for the conservative group seeking refunds for rally permits and fees, arguing that Occupy Richmond activists have not been charged anything for the same activities.

The audit is outlined in a Nov. 14 letter by the city’s Department of Finance. It states the group has not paid admissions, lodging or meals taxes collected by the city, so is now being audited.

The tea party said Monday it has never charged an admission or offered meals or lodging associated with its rallies.

“Every month the forms are appropriately filled with zeros,” Tea Party spokeswoman Colleen Owens wrote in an email.

The group said the audit is punishment for its complaint that the city had charged it $8,500 for permits and other costs for rallies, while Occupy Richmond activists have not been assessed any costs related to their former occupation of a city-owned plaza.

The tea party sought a refund, unsuccessfully, from the city.

“This audit is an obvious attempt to intimidate and harass us for standing up against the unfair treatment and discrimination against our Tea Party,” Owens wrote in the email.

A spokeswoman for Mayor Dwight C. Jones said his office wasn’t aware of the audit and that the Richmond Tea Party is among 700 businesses that were not compliant with admissions, meals or lodging excise taxes, known collectively as ALM.

“The Richmond Tea Party did not file any of the required ALM monthly returns during 2010 and had only filed January and February 2011 when this account was selected for audit review,” Tammy D. Hawley wrote in an email to The Associated Press.

Since then, it has filed returns for 2011 but not 2010, Hawley said.

Owens said the tea party treasurer had been told by a city official he would comply with the 2010 filings. The official said not to bother because the group would have no reports of tax activity sought by the city, she said.

“We’ll be glad to fill out the forms but all the forms will be zero,” Owens said in an interview. “We’ve never owed any taxes.”

The Richmond Tea Party has publicly criticized Jones and his administration for favoring Occupy Richmond activists. They have cited his public comments stating his sympathies with the anti-Wall Street movement as a child of the civil rights movement and its protests.

The Tea Party said Jones’ administration sought permit fees, portable toilets and other demands for their events, but had given Occupy Richmond a free pass.

The Occupy movement pitched tents for two weeks on a city-owned plaza until police cleared them out in a pre-dawn sweep on Oct. 31.

The occupation costs the city $17,640, primarily for police and public works overtime costs, according to a city accounting based on a Freedom of Information Act request filed by the AP.

The costs did not include a subsequent occupation on the lawn of the mayor’s neighbor.

Parties Contest Election-Monitoring Techniques

Not only are Americans divided over the presidential candidates, they appear to be divided over how people should vote for those candidates.

Texas tea partyers have launched an election-monitoring effort designed to weed out voter fraud. Civil rights groups call it an elaborate intimidation scheme targeting minority voters.

“They’re trying to put in place a solution for a problem that doesn’t exist,” said Judith Browne-Dianis, co-director of the Advancement Project, adding that voter fraud is uncommon.

Still, the tea party poll watchers point to errors in voter-registration rolls as proof that the system is broken. By monitoring the elections, they seek to prevent double voting, voter impersonation and ballots cast by illegal residents.

“Our goal is to bring focus to a national call for election integrity,” said Catherine Engelbrecht, president of the King Street Patriots, the group behind the poll-watching effort.

The group has raised $140,000 and has already provided election-monitoring training to tea party groups in 30 states through its “True the Vote” project. Engelbrecht said she has a lofty goal to train 1 million people by next year’s elections. Read More >>>

Tea Party Numbers Grow As Presidential Election Nears

Barack Obama has clearly earned his day of reckoning with the American people. That should happen at the polls on Election Day 2012. Yet one important question appears, will the American people actually show up to send this President packing? The growing dissent over the President’s initiatives and programs are now reflected in most American opinion polls. For example, theSeptember 2011 CBS/New York opinion poll showed Obama’s public approval rating at 43%, the lowest of his Presidency.
