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.”

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!”
One in Four Americans Unaware that Earth Circles Sun
So, if twenty six percent of the American population doesn’t know that the earth revolves around the sun, then how can we expect them to make intelligent decisions at the polls? I think that’s a no-brainer – literally! From Breitbart.com:
(AFP)—Americans are enthusiastic about the promise of science but lack basic knowledge of it, with one in four unaware that the Earth revolves around the Sun, said a poll out Friday.
The survey included more than 2,200 people in the United States and was conducted by the National Science Foundation.
Nine questions about physical and biological science were on the quiz, and the average score — 6.5 correct — was barely a passing grade.
Just 74 percent of respondents knew that the Earth revolved around the Sun, according to the results released at the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Chicago. Continue reading at: breitbart.com.
Will Obamacare sink the insurance companies and lead us to single-payer?
Thanks to the valiant efforts of a dedicated group of citizen activists an INDEPENDENT Special External Audit of GRU is being discussed tonight, February 6, at 6:30 at City Hall in downtown Gainesville. MAKE PLANS TO ATTEND! It is very important that the auditorium be filled with ratepayers who want to hold GRU accountable for the irresponsible financial decisions made by the commission over the past few years. (Parking is free). Only by showing that the ratepayers demand this audit is there any chance that it will actually occur. This is an opportunity for you to make a difference! Please see the letter below.
Support an audit!
Please join me and other fed-up citizens at City Hall on Thursday @ 6:30 pm in the auditorium to support a desperately needed external special audit of Gainesville Regional Utilities.
Properly designed special audits are necessary to gather information about past decisions that cannot be obtained any other way.
Unfortunately, several anti-progressive machine politicians on the Gainesville City Commission — those who have been responsible for bringing Gainesville the highest electric rates in the state, who are wrecking our environment and who continue to call out-of-state and overseas wood-burning energy speculators their “partners” — do not want a special audit.
Expect excuses like “too expensive,” “fishing expedition,” or “it’s time to move forward,” or, if those excuses don’t work, expect cynical efforts to limit the scope of the audit with arguments like “we need to concentrate only on what we can in advance guarantee will result immediately in identifiable reductions in electric bills.”
Cynical. Outrageous. Enough.
City of Gainesville commission candidate CRAIG CARTER is running against incumbent commissioner Susan Bottcher, the same commissioner who supports higher GRU bills and narrowing streets like NW Eighth Avenue! CRAIG CARTER stands for responsible, responsive government and, WITH YOUR HELP, can win in March! A volunteer meeting is being held TONIGHT, Tuesday, January 28, at 7:00 PM. Even if you do not live in Gainesville or in Craig Carter’s district YOU CAN HELP! Plan to attend! Also see campaign events where you can make a difference: sign waving, talking to voters, get the message out to voters that they have a choice for good government – CRAIG CARTER! Or go to his campaign website at www.votecraigcarter.com and donate a few dollars. NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL!
We’re having our first all-volunteers meeting, tomorrow (Tues) night! We need YOUR help!!!!
Come on out, hear how the campaign is going (great so far!) and hear the specific ways that you can get involved!
We need help — waving signs, making calls, walking neighborhoods — and helping to organize all of this activity!
Can’t wait to see you there!

On November 24, 2013, western powers, lead by President Barack Obama and his Secretary of State, John Kerry, agreed to a deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran — the leading state sponsor of terrorism in the world today — that betrays our allies in the State of Israel and all but guarantees a nuclear-armed Iran.
The deal lifts billions of dollars of crippling sanctions against Iran, undermines countless UN resolutions levied against it, and tacitly acknowledges its self-declared right to pursue a nuclear program. In exchange for this, the west gets nothing, or perhaps worse than nothing — an unenforceable bureaucratic and regulatory nightmare that will allow Iran to cat-and-mouse their way to regional supremacy and a nuclear bomb.
As Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu observed:
“As we learn more and more details about the agreement that was achieved last night in Geneva, it becomes increasingly clear how bad and dangerous this agreement is to the world, the region, and Israel.”
In September 1938, a war-weary west made a similar concession to Adolf Hitler, granting him, in violation of treaty, the right to annex the Sudetenland. What was deemed by liberals then to be “peace in our time” was, in actuality, the point of no return for stopping the bloodiest war in human history and the near annihilation of the Jewish people.

“We all know that Mitch McConnell and his mealy-mouthed minions believe that Obamacare is the law of the land and will never be repealed [root and branch]. But they are not man enough to publicly promulgate that belief. Instead they lie to their constituents and claim to be pushing defunding Obamacare, albeit with a smarter strategy. McConnell claims that the real fight will be when he becomes Majority Leader. He says so even as he admits that “parts of the law are OK.”
“Last night, Ted Cruz showed us all what it means to give voice to our concerns, instead of faking to vote with conservatives. We will never have a voice in Washington so long as Mitch McConnell is leading the Senate.”
Great article exposing the Progressive Republicans who are encouraging the destruction of our country. They are worse than the Progressive Democrats because they are wolves in sheep’s clothing. Get involved! These nasty guys need to go!
“So McConnell, Cornyn, McCain etc. want Obamacare. They want the never ending spending to go on and on. They want the destruction of America as much as the Left does.”
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
Plan to attend this great event featuring keynote speaker Derrick Wilburn, founder of Americans Conservatives of Color, www.blackandconservative.com, an organization dedicated to uniting conservatives across the nation.

FLETCHER, N.C. (AP) — Tea party activists, once unquestioned as a benefit to the Republican Party for supplying it with votes and energy, are now criticizing GOP leaders at seemingly every turn.
They’re demanding that Congress use upcoming budget votes to deny money for putting in place President Barack Obama’s 2010 health care law, despite warnings the strategy could lead to a government shutdown. Continue reading at: sfgate.com.
