Now is the time . . .
Now is the time ...
As elections approach, the blame game begins. Most of us blame our addled leader and his puppet-masters for our present chaos. But it is not only the Democrat Party’s figureheads but its addiction to power that is killing us. Unlimited power feeds delusion. California’s Democratic Governor Newsom’s promise to provide free housing and sex change operations to millions of illegal migrants in his state that is already plagued by lawlessness and homelessness is no less delusional than President Biden’s belief that he has secured our borders, stopped the inflation tax, and saved us from a white supremacist insurrection.
“In My Opinion”
Speak Up and Speak Freely
At the November 2023 Executive Committee meeting, a motion was proposed to censor speech/prohibit speech of executive committee members. Sadly I was unable to see this occur live, but I spoke with multiple members and read the minutes.
As defined by the ACLU, censorship is, “the suppression of words, images, or ideas that are “offensive,” happens whenever some people succeed in imposing their personal political or moral values on others.” What happened at the last Executive Committee meeting is 100% censorship, pure and simple, regardless of how anyone attempts to wordsmith or play language gymnastics with the text of the motion.
These are the Israeli citizens who were abducted by HAMAS Terrorists and taken back to Gaza to be held as hostages. Pray for their safe return.

Two Music Videos With Powerful Messages Worth Noting
"Rich Men North of Richmond"
"Rich Men North of Richmond" is a song by American country music singer Oliver Anthony that was released in August 2023. The song became an overnight viral hit after gaining traction on social media, and has been described as a "blue-collar anthem", an "everyman anthem" and a "right-wing anthem". Within days of its release, it topped multiple sales and streaming charts.
"Try That in a Small Town"
"Try That in a Small Town" contrasts rural and urban lifestyles. It asserts that behavior such as flag burning or protests and attacks toward police officers will face stronger consequences in a rural setting than an urban one, stating, "try that in a small town, see how far ya make it down the road" and "if you're looking for a fight, try that in a small town".
"In the end, they're not coming after me. They're coming after you — and I'm just standing in their way,"
- Former President Donald Trump

HISTORY OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY
Founding of the Republican Party
On July 6, 1854, just after the anniversary of the nation, an anti-slavery state convention was held in Jackson, Michigan. The hot day forced the large crowd outside to a nearby oak grove. At this “Under the Oaks Convention” the first statewide candidates were selected for what would become the Republican Party.
United by desire to abolish slavery, it was in Jackson that the Platform of the Under the Oaks Convention read: “…we will cooperate and be known as REPUBLICANS…” Prior to July, smaller groups had gathered in intimate settings like the schoolhouse in Ripon, Wisconsin. However, the meeting in Jackson would be the first ever mass gathering of the Republican Party. The name “Republican” was chosen, alluding to Thomas Jefferson’s Democratic-Republican Party and conveying a commitment to the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Party of Freedom
Though popularized in a Thomas Nast cartoon, the GOP’s elephant symbol originated during the 1860 campaign, as a symbol of Republican strength. Republicans envisioned “free soil, free speech, free labor.” Under the leadership of President Abraham Lincoln, the GOP became the Party of the Union as well.
President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, but it was the entire Republican Party who freed the slaves. The 1864 Republican National Convention called for the abolition of slavery, and Congressional Republicans passed the 13th Amendment unanimously, with only a few Democrat votes. The early women’s rights movement was solidly Republican, as it was a continuation of abolitionism. They were careful not to be overly partisan, but as did Susan B. Anthony, most suffragists favored the GOP. The 19th Amendment was written by a Republican senator and garnered greater support from Republicans than from Democrats.
