The 9 Principles to remember

Posted by on Sep 15, 2016 in Slideshow | 0 comments

    America Is Good.     I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life. God “The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.” from George Washington’s first Inaugural address.     I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday. Honesty “I hope that I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider to be the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.” George Washington     The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government. Marriage/Family “It is in the love of one’s family only that heartfelt happiness is known. By a law of our nature, we cannot be happy without the endearing connections of a family.” Thomas Jefferson     If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it. Justice “I deem one of the essential principles of our government… equal and exact justice to all men of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political.” Thomas Jefferson     I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results. Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness “Everyone has a natural right to choose that vocation in life which he thinks most likely to give him comfortable subsistence.” Thomas Jefferson     I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable. Charity “It is not everyone who asketh that deserveth charity; all however, are worth of the inquiry or the deserving may suffer.” George Washington     It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion. On your right to disagree “In a free and republican government, you cannot restrain the voice of the multitude; every man will speak as he thinks, or more properly without thinking.” George Washington     The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me. Who works for whom? “I consider the people who constitute a society or a nation as the source of all authority in that nation.” Thomas...

The Power of a Sovereign State

Posted by on Sep 1, 2016 in Slideshow, Words from the Chairman | 0 comments

At our last membership meeting, I spoke of three incidents that highlight the effort of the left to destroy Americanism and pride in our history. One incident in particular was a mayor in New York who ordered the fire department to remove the American flag from firetrucks, using the excuse that the waving flag was a hazard to the firemen and other drivers. The entire fire department should have told the mayor that they would not obey, and continued to display the flag on their trucks. In doing so, they would have backed the mayor into a corner because he could not have fired every fireman. More so, it would have been a public relations nightmare for the mayor; one that he would have lost miserably. It was at that point in the meeting that I said we’re nearing the time for us to engage in civil disobedience, as the N.Y.fire department should have. (Thankfully, when Sevierville Mayor Atchely had the microphone, he said he would never order the American flag be removed from anything, and doesn’t anticipate any other city mayor doing that either.) Here’s why I mention it in this email: As per the Constitution, the Republic has three equal branches of government; the Executive, the Legislative, and the Judiciary. One does not have authority over the other two. Nor is the Judiciary the final arbiter or law makers. Although an equally important branch of government, their constitutional jurisdiction stops at rendering opinion((s). Wednesday, August 31, the Supreme Court of the United States ( SCOTUS ) handed down an incredibly asinine opinion: http://www.redstate.com/sweetie15/2016/08/31/breaking-u.s.-high-court-sides-social-justice-warriors-will-reinstate-voter-id-law-nc/ Governor Pat McCrory of N. Carolina is a strong governor, standing up to Obama and his transgender bathroom edict. He understands that he is a governor of a sovereign state representing his constituents, and not merely a governor of a province enforcing unconstitutional edicts emanating from Washington. I would hope ( but not expect ) that the governor remembers President Andrew Jackson’s reply when the SCOTUS gave their opinion that the Trail of Tears was unconstitutional and ordered Jackson to stop. Jackson’s reply was simple: “That’s your opinion. Now, try to enforce it”. Tennessee has strict voter I.D. laws in place. But after today’s ruling, I fully anticipate that our laws will be challenged as well. We need to engage our representatives, and remind them of the sovereignty they represent. I’ll keep you posted as to when our I.D. laws will be challenged, and what course of action we’ll need to take when the time comes. In Liberty, Steve Osborn SCTP...
