Important Legislation You Can Help Us Fight

July 16, 2009

RIGHT NOW, there are two enormous, and enormously dangerous, bills that are moving through our Congress! The Cap & Trade bill (HR 2454) is on its way to the Senate for final passage – a bill that would regulate the temperature of your home, raise your electricity bill ~90%, raise the cost of virtually everything you buy, cause thousands of job losses during our country’s recession, etc. http://blog.heritage.org/2009/06/22/cbo-grossly-underestimates-costs-of-cap-and-trade/ And the House of Representatives is busy deciding which Nationalized Health Insurance bill (primarily the Kennedy bill) to vote on by the end of the summer! – a bill that would end competition and force private insurers out of business, put bureaucrats in charge of deciding your health care coverage, and lead to nationalized health care and its reliable traits of: long waiting periods, inaccessible treatments based on age/health/etc., lack of innovation for disease-curing drugs, and general low quality due to the lack of tax payer money to fund an endeavor that would take over almost 20% of our free market economy. http://blog.heritage.org/2009/06/24/cbos-health-estimates-the-high-cost-of-spending-other-peoples-money

CALL CONGRESS NOW!  202-224-3121.  Contact your Senators and Congressman repeatedly, as often as it takes, and tell them to vote NO to these two bills. We must work as hard as we can to keep them from becoming law! They would both strip Americans of individual liberties like we have never seen before in America – and like we should never, ever see!”

Huntsville Independence Day Tea Party

July 16, 2009

The Huntsville Independence Day Tea Party started at 7:00pm on Saturday, July 4th, and ended after the fireworks! An estimated crowd of 5,000 attended!! We had 7 speakers including myself, Roger Richardson (ran in primaries for State Senate in District 7), Mary Scott Hunter (ran in primaries for State Senate in District 7), Les Phillip (running for Congress in District 5 in 2010), Rachel Gray (19 year old concerned college student), Sergiy Braylyan (shared his experience of living under socialized medicine in Russia for many years), and Linda Lawrence (with huntsvillecommunityrights.com, which focuses on holding the Huntsville Housing Authority accountable.) Mo Brooks (running for Congress in District 5 in 2010) was our event emcee. We also had a band play at the beginning, and had food vendors.

We’ve also had 2 special elections in North Alabama, and have elected two men who agree with our Tea Party goals (individual liberties, limited government, fiscal responsibility, and the free market system) and recognize that the Constitution is the law of the land: Paul Sanford (State Senate District 7) and Phil Williams (State House District 6!)

Now, We the People must stay politically active on all levels and continue work to restore our country to the Republic it was created to be.  We have a lot of work ahead of us, but we know what is at stake and we know our families and futures are worth it! We must make sure our elected officials hear from us often, and must hold them accountable with our vote. We must be sure to vote out the deficit spenders and  advocates of big government and socialism, and replace them with people that will adhere to the Constitution.

Health Care Tea Party Friday, July 17th

July 16, 2009

“This Friday, July 17th, is the “Nationwide Health Care Freedom Protest” where we will be meeting at congressional offices around the country to protest and keep the Nationalized Health Insurance bill and Cap & Trade bills from passing.  Right before this email, I sent out one that goes into detail about the health care bill and how we can fight it.  It includes lists of who to call in which committee as this bill moves forth – and it is moving forth towards passage now.  Please be sure to read that important email!


It’s time to act!!  If you stand for individual liberty and limited government, if the Tea Parties are truly more than just talk for you, meet us this Friday, July 17th, from 12:00pm – 1:00pm at the location of the Tax Day Tea Party (the vacant lot across the street from the Post Office on Clinton Ave.)  Bring SIGNS and LETTERS to Parker Griffith.  He voted against Cap & Trade when it passed the House and says he is against the Kennedy bill “as it is”, but has also said he believes health care is a right and that he is for comprehensive government reform of our health care industry.  Bring letters from your family, friends, and co-workers who can’t make it!  If you are unable stay for the full hour, simply drive into the parking lot, hand your letters to Jan Nolin (will have a name tag and be visible), and be on your way!  If you cannot attend, please phone/fax/email Parker Griffith.  We will be delivering the letters to Parker Griffith at 1:00pm – his local office is only a few blocks from this site.  We want LARGE numbers at this event, like always, but the Huntsville Police Department has required that, for safety reasons, only 70 walk together to Griffith’s office to deliver them.  Please come and stand with us from 12:00pm – 1:00pm!


Remember to park on Lot K (the back entrance will be open.)  Please remember to contact Senators Sessions and Shelby via phone/fax/email about these issues, as well.  All of our federal elected officials need to know what we want.


It’s time to keep the pressure on!! We will not go away, we are here to stay and restore our country to the great Republic it was intended to be.”
