For a true American Thanksgiving Day is the most meaningful holiday of the year. It is the only day of celebration that extolls and reveres what was the greatest societal accomplishment in the history of mankind: a country built on individual rights with a government put in place to protect those rights. Sadly, this country no longer allows for individual freedom and is rapidly becoming a dictatorship following the paths of Venezuela and Cuba. As of last Thursday, November 20, it was declared by Obama that we are no longer a nation governed by the rule of law but one governed by a single person. One exalted person, the President of the United States, has been placed above the rule of law and, as such, with “my pen and my telephone” will now control our lives. Even though the majority of American citizens say they do not wish to live under a dictatorship there is no political will in our elected officials to stop this tyranny. The will of the people is now irrelevant. So get prepared as we follow the path of all dictatorships. It took less than a decade for Chavez to ruin Venezuela.
So what do we have to be thankful for? Our world freedom ranking has so far only sunken to number twelve in comparison to all other countries. We are still freer than West Africa and North Korea, China. So enjoy your diminishing freedom while it still exists and give thanks that we are not yet Cuba. And it should take a bit longer than a decade to ruin America.
As we rapidly devolve from a republic which values individual liberties to a dictatorship we still have heroes in Washington willing to fight against the demise of our country by defending and upholding our Constitution. We are fortunate that our Congressman, Ted Yoho, is one of those heroes. Please email or send a Facebook message thanking him for standing firm and confirming your support for his action, the Executive Amnesty Prevention Act. Thank you, Congressman Yoho.
From Sunshine State News:
“U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., offered a bill on Thursday to prevent President Barack Obama from using an executive order to allow illegals a path to stay in the nation. Yoho insisted Obama was overstepping what the executive branch can do and hopes his “Executive Amnesty Prevention Act” will cut him off at the pass.
“Article I, Section 8, Clause 4 gives Congress the ‘power to establish a uniform rule of naturalization,’ while Article II, Section 3 lays out clearly that the ‘the president shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed,’” Yoho noted about the Constitution. “With the go-it-alone approach of the president on immigration, I felt it necessary to introduce this bill and stop the president from going around Congress and the American people. An executive ‘fix’ of the law is unconstitutional, temporary, and will establish a very dangerous precedent.”
“Yes, the president has prosecutorial discretion – in certain cases – but that does not mean he has the authority to provide blanket amnesty or pardons to 5 million illegal aliens,”
Thank you, Congressman Yoho, for holding to our principles by voting against John Boehner continuing his run as Speaker of the House. With both his votes and actions, Mr. Boehner has repeatedly worked against individual liberty and the Constitution. His leadership is one of the primary reasons our country is facing so many hardships and it gives us great comfort knowing you are in Washington fighting for the rights of your constituents and the liberties provided to us by our Constitution. You face a grueling uphill battle everyday and we want you to know that we are solidly behind you. As Joe Vasquez, a great patriot, continually reminds us: STAY MOTIVATED!
Very astute analysis of 2014 election results offered by Derrick Wilburn, committed conservative activist. Be sure to read entire article.
“Yet the massive gains by Republicans in the U.S. Congress come at a time when congressional Republicans have all-time low public approval ratings. Indeed according to Public Policy Polling.com congressional Republicans are less popular with the American people than cockroaches, traffic jams, Brussel sprouts, colonoscopies, used car salesmen, and head lice. (At least you can get rid of lice.) But despite the fact that seemingly nobody can stand them, Republicans walked to massive victories. It speaks directly to what the American people think of the current, massively leftist Democrat agenda that over it they would prefer people they can’t stand.”

There is now a non-partisan political group in Alachua County focusing on the fiscal responsibility of local government. Citizen Coalition is comprised of concerned citizens who want to take action to protect the taxpayers in our county. The group is currently concentrating on fighting the proposed road sales tax that is on the ballot for November 4. For those of you who want to contribute to their effort by donating a few dollars for signs opposing the tax please go to www.citizencoalitionpac.org or contact Debbie Martinez at debbiemartinez44
This is an opportunity to GET INVOLVED!!!
JUST DO IT!
Attention Alachua County voters! Many of you are already aware that Susan Baird, our county commissioner for limited government, is not running for reelection. Once the primaries were over this partisan race narrowed down to a Democrat candidate, Ken Cornell, and a Republican candidate, John Martin. Every county voter can vote for this distract seat! As is our custom Gainesville Tea Party will host a debate for this seat which is certain to reveal the differences between the two candidates and give our citizens another opportunity to get answers about the positions each candidate takes on the important issues. Those of you who have attended in the past know that we are not afraid of asking the tough questions. Let’s keep our tradition of hosting the largest turnout of all the candidates’ forums!
Mark your calendars! Encourage your friends and family to attend!
Gainesville Tea Party Debate for County Commission District 4
Tuesday, October 21, 2014, 7:00 PM
Countryside Baptist Church, 10926 NW 39th Ave, Gainesville, FL 32606
From Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jundal:
“Consider the Prevention and Public Health Fund, a new series of annual mandatory appropriations created by Obamacare. Over the past five years, the CDC has received just under $3 billion in transfers from the fund. Yet only 6 percent—$180 million—of that $3 billion went toward building epidemiology and laboratory capacity. Especially given the agency’s postwar roots as the Communicable Disease Center, one would think that “detecting and responding to infectious diseases and other public health threats” warrants a larger funding commitment.
Instead, the Obama administration has focused the CDC on other priorities. While protecting Americans from infectious diseases received only $180 million from the Prevention Fund, the community transformation grant program received nearly three times as much money—$517.3 million over the same five-year period.
The CDC’s website makes clear the objectives of community transformation grants. The program funds neighborhood interventions like “increasing access to healthy foods by supporting local farmers and developing neighborhood grocery stores,” or “promoting improvements in sidewalks and street lighting to make it safe and easy for people to walk and ride bikes.” Bike lanes and farmer’s markets may indeed help a community—but they would do little to combat dangerous diseases like Ebola, SARS or anthrax.”
Makes one wonder who really is behind this website ranking Alexa.com…
“How could every major alternative website that challenges the mainstream, establishment view of Washington and the world be experiencing a drop-off in readership while their counterparts on the other side of the political spectrum are gaining readers? It appears unlikely, yet that’s exactly what happened last month, according to Alexa.com, which measures web traffic and ranks websites from the most popular to the least popular. Alexa rankings are important because they are among a handful of measurement tools used by companies when deciding where to spend their advertising dollars.”
The Drudge Report, WND, Breitbart, Fox News, the Blaze, Newsmax, CNSNEWS, the Daily Caller, Infowars and Natural News are all plunging in popularity, according to Alexa’s rankings. At the same time, pro-government sites like the Daily Kos, ThinkProgress, Media Matters, MSNBC, NPR.org and Democracy Now! are all rising in popularity, according to Alexa.
“Those critics who have been citing Barack Obama’s foreign policy fiascoes and disasters as evidence that he is incompetent may be overlooking the possibility that he has different priorities than the protection of the American people and America’s interests as a nation.”
As part of our commitment to get involved with elections outside of our districts I urge you to get active in candidate Carol Platt’s campaign who is challenging incumbent Alan Grayson for the 9th Congressional District in central Florida. Many of you are aware of the idiocy of Alan Grayson but to refresh your memory or get acquainted with his despicable antics go to http://
Orlando Sentinel Article showing differences on issues – http://touch.orlandosentinel.
From Carol Platt’s campaign:
“Nancy Pelosi has decided to stump for Grayson. The only reason she would be here is that he is vulnerable. Let’s show these people we can make a difference and get the grassroots folks mobilized. We need money but also volunteers to send emails, make calls and walk door-to-door in the District.”
Carol’s website is: www.carolplattforcongress.com
Amendment 1, which allows the State of Florida to use a percentage of tax dollars collected through the payment of documentary stamps required on any land transaction for more environmental property purchases by the state, will be on the ballot on November 4th.
From Daniel Peterson, Executive Director of Coalition for Property Rights:
“The fact is private owners are better stewards of land than government. Government should not be handed $18 billion of taxpayer money to acquire and control land.
The American dream embraces the principle of private citizens owning and using property as a protection against the potential tyranny of the state. Increased government ownership threatens that principle with no guarantees of better land stewardship.”
Mr. Peterson clearly explains all the reasons why citizens should vote NO on Amendment 1.
Amendment 2, which allows for more widespread use of medical marijuana in Florida, is being hotly debated. Until recently the polls seemed to indicate a majority of voters in favor of the initiative but that support appears to be slipping in these final weeks leading up to election day. We have provided this link which may help you decide how you want to vote as this is a social issue, not a fiscal issue.
Amendment 3, which allows for an outgoing Governor to appoint judges for positions that become vacant on inauguration day rather than the incoming Governor, is also being hotly debated. Opponents say that this is a simple power grab for the incumbent party (in this case the Republican party) but the same requirements would exist for any incumbent party no matter which party is in power. Hopefully the following links will help you decide how you want to vote.
