As owner of a business that delivers healthcare Obama’s budget has me chomping at the bit to grow, expand, explode with new jobs! Good luck with that…
“President Obama unveiled an ambitious $3.9 trillion budget blueprint Tuesday that seeks billions of dollars in fresh spending to boost economic growth but also pledges to tame the national debt by raising taxes on the wealthy, slashing payments to health providers and overhauling the nation’s immigration laws.”
VOTE: CITY OF GAINESVILLE COMMISSION
The Todd Chase Campaign from District 2, The Craig Carter Campaign from District 3 and The Annie Orlando Campaign , At-Large, have put party politics aside and appear to be the only candidates who care about ALL the voters. They were the only campaigns to inquire about what concerns many of the Gainesville Tea Party supporters had about the future of the city.
Do our freedom loving citizens have the political will to form a new party? Do they have the strength of purpose to carry it out? Can it be done? These are important questions and this article is an important analysis.
“An adage says that history repeats itself. One party transitioning into another — that is what needs to occur today — that is the history that needs to be repeated. Conservatives today can do the same as our forbearers — unite, network with other people and organizations, and form a new, dominant political party.”
“The transition of the Whig Party into the Republican Party provides a model to follow and a successful, workable solution to the political turmoil of today. Whigs together with representatives of other parties agreed that one unified front was crucial to the fight, and thus founded the Republican Party.”
“There now is a window of opportunity between elections for conservatives to begin the process of forming a strong, viable, new political party. This moment in time is shortly after the 2013 elections, before the 2014 midterm elections, and well before the 2016 presidential election. It is before annual conservative conferences that provide the opportunity for necessary discussions and meetings to occur.’
“Today, Republicans, Reagan Democrats, Tea Partiers, Libertarians, Independents, and discouraged declined-to-voters can unify to form a new party. By reaching out to all comers — then and now — the new party draws from a much larger base by which to become the dominant party. Conservatives have sufficient numbers to form a new, dominant political party, according to polling data.”
The sooner efforts are begun on forming a new political party, the more likely liberty will be restored in America.”
Remember Obama’s comment to Putin caught on a microphone left turned on? “I will have much more flexibility after I get elected”. And so it starts – the takeover of Eastern Europe. And to where will it lead? The eventual takeover of Western Europe?
“It appears that Russia has taken control of Crimea without firing a shot and is referring to it as the “Autonomous Republic of Crimea,” presumably with the intention of making it a puppet state of Moscow.”

From Alfonzo Rachel from ZoNation-watch the entire video..it really sums up Charlie Crist (and the true liberal view of Tea Party and minorities)! Thank you, Alfonzo!
“The liberal defenders of government power attack concentrations of wealth, but in the true concentration of wealth is not found in the hands of a few billionaires, but in the hands of the government.”
“The editorialists talk about income inequality and the 1 percent, but they focus on individuals rather than institutions, and it is the concentration of wealth and power in institutions that threaten civil liberties.
The top 10 wealthiest men and women in America barely have 250 billion dollars between them. Federal budgets run into the trillions of dollars, and the national debt approaches 15 trillion dollars. And that’s not taking into account state budgets.”
“That is the difference between the wealth wielded by the 10th wealthiest man in America, and the mayor of a single city. And that is the real concentration of wealth. Not in the hands of individuals, but at every level of government, from the municipal to the state houses to the White House.”
Want to unseat Eric Cantor? Here’s your chance – the Republican primary in the the Seventh Congressional District of Virginia. Congressman Cantor is being challenged by Dave Brat, an economics professor and past Chair of the Department of Economics and Business at Randolph-Macon College.
According to Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon:
“One of the inspirations of the tea party movement was to actually take individuals who were not career politicians and have them jump in as citizen legislators and join the vocal process.” David Brat, a professor who chaired the Department of Economics and Business at Randolph-Macon College, is “jumping in” in a big way.”
This your chance to be part of the 2014 national revolution against the progressive Republicans who consistent support higher taxes, deficit spending and increased regulations. Act now before we have lost all of our individual rights! Give time or give money. No amount is too small!!

How proud I am to be a Reagan heir!
“Say again? The Tea Party’s reason for being is to support “fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government and free market economic policies” — and this makes it racist? And worse? Where have we heard this before?
If you guessed the Reagan era you would be right. Yes indeed, Ronald Reagan was accused of racism — among all manner of other things — for supporting exactly what the Tea Party supports: fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free market economic policies.
As the Tea Party prepares to celebrate its fifth anniversary, it’s exactly the moment to note that this is a group of Americans who in fact can lay legitimate claim to being called “Reagan’s Heirs” — the ideological descendants of the ideas identified with the man Americans rank as the nation’s greatest president.
The Tea Party is nothing more threatening than groups of like-minded Americans who are deeply concerned their country is being run off the fiscal cliff.”
From our own Ron Thornton:
Viet Nam Pilot Down……Wow, what a story! This is worth watching.Those who served can appreciate the eloquence of the speaker, the poignant message, and the dedication that true Patriotic Americans can appreciate.This is a compelling story of leadership, and of loyalty to military comrades. That feeling you will have while listening, is a stirring of patriotism and pride.
WATCH THIS, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT…
Endorsed by the Senate Conservatives Fund, Matt Bevin is the candidate poised to unseat incumbent Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell – “”Matt Bevin is a true conservative who will fight to stop the massive spending, bailouts, and debt that are destroying our country,” said Senate Conservatives Fund Director Matt Hoskins in a statement. “He is not afraid to stand up to the establishment and he will do what it takes to stop Obamacare. We know that winning this primary won’t be easy. Mitch McConnell has the support of the entire Washington establishment and he will do anything to hold on to power. But if people in Kentucky and all across the country rise up and demand something better, we’re confident Matt Bevin can win this race.”
Senator McConnell’s voting record shows he supports promoting and preserving big government. A true RINO this interesting page from FreedomWorks showcases McConnell’s flip flop voting as he crafts his power hungry career through his Senate tenure http://congress.freedomworks.org/legislators/mitch-mcconnell.
If patriots across the country will rise up, get involved and donate money or effort to these campaigns we have a great chance to change Washington! And quite possibly the last chance. SEND FIVE DOLLARS OR SEND FIFTY! No amount is too small! Contact the campaign and get phone lists so you can make phone calls from your cell phone! Whatever you decide to do JUST DO IT!

PLAN TO ATTEND!!!
When: Saturday, February 22, 10:00 AM
Location: Countryside Baptist Church, 10926 NW 39th Ave, Gainesville
November elections are rapidly approaching! It’s time to mobilize and learn how we can be most effective in getting the candidates who hold our values elected to office. We have many candidates across the nation who have been successfully vetted by tea party groups and need your support. We also are fortunate to have local candidates who adhere to the tenets of good government. So put this meeting on your calendar and bring your friends and family. We are not going away and we are not giving up!
If we patriots GET INVOLVED and help candidates around the nation we can make a difference in the Republican primaries!
Erick Erickson sums it up:
“What does the GOP stand for?
I know what conservatives stand for — limiting government, local control, free markets, and life. But what of the GOP?”
“I want Washington to leave me the hell alone. And the only way that is possible is this fight now in the Republican primaries.(italics mine) The patricians of the party must be defeated if we are to be left alone. If we do not change the face of the GOP, we will not change Washington. And if we do not change Washington, we can never change our country.”
In our ongoing Election Actions! to be involved with candidates across the country we need to help Virginia remove incumbent Congressman Eric Cantor who is being challenged by Dave Brat, a candidate who aligns himself with tea party values.
From Tea Party leadership in Virginia:
“Eric Cantor is being challenged in the Va 7th District, and we have a good shot at getting rid of him. The challenger is Dave Brat. He is a Tea Party guy who has a great background and is beginning to attract financial backing from wealthy donors. You can find out more about Dave here. We have begun to attract serious national attention. We have been in Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, National Review Online, and will be doing a Breitbart interview soon.
It’s ‘do-or-die’ time. Cantor is a progressive. All grassroots in Virginia know this, but many in the GOP don’t. Only we can stop him by bombarding the Virginia 7th district!
Here’s how you can help:
1. DONATE! at www.davebratforcongress.com. NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL! Please donate today and get all the grassroots in your state to give! Get the word out!
2. Publicize this race! Newspapers, TV, your web pages, Facebook, Twitter, whatever. Turn this into ‘Tea Party vs the failed leadership of Cantor.’ He’s wrong on Obamacare, amnesty, deficit spending, etc. We’re losing under Cantor. Dave Brat is the solution.
3. Provide boots on the ground, arrange with us to do phone banking, coordinate with us to do a mailer, etc. We need a maximum effort & you can help no matter where you live. Go full-throttle campaign mode!
I really feel we must pitch in now. A strong pushback vs. Cantor will stop him! Defeating him is highly possible and would send shockwaves all across the political spectrum!
Let’s go defeat progressive Eric Cantor!”
Today is an opportunity to tell your county commissioners exactly how you feel about placing a one cent sales tax referendum for Transportation Funding on the November ballot. At 5:00 PM the commission will meet to discuss and vote on placing the initiative on the ballot. Location: County administration Building, downtown Gainesville.
See some details below.
Here is one citizen who has already voiced her opinion:
I would like to express my support for the transportation tax, if a portion of it will be going to improvements in transit, cycling and pedestrian infrastructure.
I am a High Springs resident who commutes into Gainesville for work. I believe that providing good transit and pedestrian facilities is essential to a livable city and free up space on our roads for drivers like me. (italics mine)
Thank you so much for taking the time to consider this issue.”
This citizen wants cars off the roads so her commute is easier! Would you like to pay for it? The one cent sales tax will help you do that.
Portions of the motion for the sales tax:
Motion(s) regarding Transportation Tax
