Local NY Southern Tier Tea Party news update

The latest event news about the local Tea Party organizations involves both the regular meeting for the Southern Tier Tea Party, as well as news from the Norwich Tea Party Patriots about the upcoming rally in Washington DC.

For the Southern Tier Tea Party, the next meeting is scheduled to be on April 5th. In that meeting Liberty Learning Center Director, Ms. Jane Stebela will be providing a class on Fiscal Responsibility (in government), which will cover the Founders’ view of the proper policies for government debt, spending and taxation. Ms. Stebela will be describing the ten tenets of Fiscal Responsibility and their meaning to American citizens.

Ron Barrett, President, The Southern Tier Tea Party, stated about the meeting that

“It is an non-partisan association of citizens from all parties who support three core principles: constitutionally limited government, fiscally responsible government and an environment favorable to free enterprise and personal liberty. All those who subscribe to those principals are welcome and encouraged to join us.”

The monthly meeting, held on the first Tuesday of each month, will be at the Vestal Library at the corner of Route 434 and Route 26. Contact is stteaparty@gmail.com and the phone number is 607-752-3861.

As for the Norwich Tea Party Patriots, the effort to gain a chartered bus to go to the Washington DC rally on March 31st did not generate enough people to go through. Instead there are 3 vans that will be going down to the nations capitol. The Central New York Tea Party members will be joining organizations from across the country, all of them focused on a singular thought. To remind the GOP and Congrerss in general that they have not forgotten the reasons why the 2010 elections were a rout on the ideals of the Obama Administration and Democrats.

The event is turning out to be far bigger than initially expected. Several speakers have agreed to join the rally. They will include Dick Morris, who can be seen as a regular commentator on FOX News and other media as well as a best selling author, and Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann, who has made headlines of her own.

The current plan at the end of the rally is stated as meetings with the representatives of Congress for all the various organizations across the country. In the Southern Tier that would include Representative Richard Hanna of the 24th Congressional District and Rep. Maurice Hinchey of the 22nd District.

Given the responsiveness of Rep. Hinchey during the mid-term elections (which we have well documented) the attempt to speak with him will be most interesting. As for Rep. Hanna, our experiences bode far better for those that venture to DC.

We hope to have reports and photos from the event as quickly as possible.

Space is reported to be limitied but available for the rally, contact Gilda Ward, Norwich Tea Party Patriots – 607-764-8303 Email = mward9@stny.rr.com – for further details.

    Forcing your will upon someone else is slavery. Forcing someone else physically is one way; mentally is another way. Most all of us here, in the United States of America, agree today that slavery is wrong. There exists another form of slavery in most of the world and some are trying to bring it here. It is called Socialism or Communism. ‘Government Control’ is forced upon those who try to exercise a little Freedom or try to better themselves and are not in government control. They are having their ‘strings pulled’ rather than being the ones ‘pulling the strings’. The citizens are NOT doing what they want but what someone else wants. People are better because of what they do and accomplish. However, that gives them no right to rule us. Do they think they should rule us? Do you now see why it is wrong to have ‘Career Politicians’ making decisions affecting others for life?

    Communism is State owned and State controlled. Socialism is Privately owned but State controlled. Capitalism is Privately owned and Privately controlled. Both Socialism and Communism are where things are controlled by the State, which means ‘Big Government’. It is not about Ownership; it is all about Control. (Look-up the definition of ‘State’. In referring to ‘Government’ it means ‘Country’ or ‘Nation’. So we are the ‘United Countries of America’.)

    Imagine you own a car but the government controls it. The government decides Who drives it, When they drive it, Where they drive it, Why they drive it, and How they drive it. Nevertheless, you own it; it is still your car. Really? It does not seem like it. It does not seem like it because it is not about Ownership; it is all about Control. Yeah, your name is on the ‘Title’ but if it was really your car then you would decide Who drives your car, When they drive your car, Where they drive your car, Why they drive your car, and How they drive your car. It is not about Ownership but instead about Control.

    In addition, why do descendants of former slaves in this country vote for politicians in favor of ‘Big Government’, which is government control or slavery? Do they not want the Liberty their ancestors did not enjoy? Most Democrats and some Republicans are in favor of Government Control. Plus, most in favor of ‘Big Government’ are in favor of ‘Abortions’ and ‘Special Rights’ for Homosexuals. Two issues that those ‘Americans’ are not in favor of. (I say those ’ Americans’ and not ‘African Americans’ because they are not from Africa. Their Ancestors may have been but they are not. My Ancestors were mostly from Europe but that does not make me a ‘European American’. They are as American as I am. How about we drop the whole ‘Black/White American issue’ and just call citizens ‘Americans’ no matter what their ‘Race’ may be. Let us judge people by the ‘Content of their Character’ and NOT by the ‘Color of their Skin’ as Martin Luther King Jr. had foreseen.)

    Remember the ‘Cold War‘ with the former Soviet Union. The CCCP translated to USSR, which was an acronym that stood for the United Soviet Socialist Republic. The ’Cold War’ supposedly ended because of Military Expansion that bankrupted them and then we gave them money to help them. The ’Cold War’ did not really end. Russia just changed tactics. We are still at war with Communism and Socialism, which is now all over the world. Moreover, Socialist Policies are bringing this Capitalist Nation down. As of today, Socialist Programs are failing and bankrupting us.

    Social Security is going bankrupt. Medicare is going bankrupt. Both are ‘Big Government’ Socialist Programs that are failing and bringing the rest of the nation down with them. Benjamin Franklin once said: “The People should support the Government. The Government should not support the People.” Yet one of our problems today is that we have generations of American families on government aid. Why should a healthy young man, twenty years past birth, receive taxpayer funded checks for ‘Dyslexia’ instead of working in a ‘Field of Work’ that does not require reading? Can he not shovel gravel, work on laying pavement, lay concrete, nail boards together, etcetera? In addition, Social Security and Medicare are only two of numerous Government Programs that are failing and should be cut; not ‘Phased Out’ over the next half-century. No Government Program should have a ‘Phase Out’ period of more than ten years.

    The difference between our Republic here, in the United States of America, and the former United Soviet Socialist Republic is that ‘We the People’ tell those ‘representing’ us what to do; not the other way. Therefore, if you choose not to vote, Primaries too, you are choosing to be a ‘slave’ to the government. Vote but get informed before you do, about all levels and all issues. Our ‘Union of Countries’, the United States of America, needs the participation of the ‘People’ to ‘Function as Intended’.

Thank you for lending your voice. We appreciate hearing what you have to say.
