Candidate Information

»Posted by on May 23, 2018 in Announcements, Words from the Chairman | 0 comments

Although the SCTP does not endorse candidates, I’ve written to you in the past with my critique of candidates running for office (sheriff, judges, senators, etc). It seemed appreciated, so I’m doing it again because not everyone has the opportunity to meet with the candidates, study their platforms, or stay on top of the issues affecting our liberties, and in the end know who is best suited to advance our constitutional conservative agenda. Besides, when  it comes to politics, I’m kind of a geek. I spend a lot of time following this stuff, and have a passion for limited, constitutional government. And as I’m honored to be your chairman, I think it’s my responsibility to keep you informed and share my knowledge, insight, and views on...

We the People petition

Only an idiot or a liberal will not acknowledge the successes Trump has accomplished on the world stage in such a short amount of time. ( “only and idiot or a liberal~~”. That’s kinda redundant, isn’t it.). 1) He cause the North Korean screwball to walk across the DMZ to shake hands with the South Korean president. 2) He caused the little twerp to release three American prisoners. And unlike Obama, Trump didn’t have to trade five        high-valued terrorists and pay a few hundred thousand dollars to ISIS to get one traitor released. 3) Trump riled the liberals by pulling out of the disastrous Iran nuclear deal. 4) And just this week, the American embassy in Israel was officially move to their nation’s capital, Jerusalem. If...

A GREAT guide to find out where the gubernatorial candidates stand on the issues

»Posted by on May 6, 2018 in Announcements, Words from the Chairman | 0 comments

Fellow Tennesseans We WILL have a new governor this year. Who it will be depends on how the people vote. Will they cast their vote based on research, or will they vote simply on emotion? I and others received the following email earlier today from the founder of Family Action Council of Tennessee, and I think this is a must-watch. It’s a valuable tool. Here, you have an opportunity to listen to each candidate’s response to the same nine questions. You can replay each candidate’s answer, and compare it to the others. And you can replay their answers multiple times ( which I suggest).  By replaying their answers, you can pick up idiosyncrasies, and determine who is actually answering the question vs. dancing around the issue in hopes of hiding...

Responsibility of Christians?

»Posted by on Apr 26, 2018 in Announcements, Words from the Chairman | 0 comments

Every once in awhile, I’ll say at a membership meeting that the church shares responsibility — good or bad — for the condition of our nation. While I certainly won’t criticize today’s pastors for concentrating on the noble command of the Great Commission, they’ve forgotten that most early American pastors were members of the Black Robe Regiment. They’ve forgotten the example that their predecessors set when they did not shrink from preaching against an oppressive ruler. They’ve forgotten that pastors used the pulpit to hold their representative’s feet to the fire. Most pastors today have bought into the lie that religion and politics don’t mix. While they seperate themselves from politics, our spiritual...

Remember this in August

Everyone in the conservative movement and nearly all thinking republicans know that Bob Corker is a democrat who ran on the republican ticket. He knew that to get elected, he had to masquerade as a conservative if he wanted any hope of winning an election bid in a red state. He also knew that to be reelected, he needed a substantial number of crossover votes (meaning, he counted on a certain percentage of democrats voting for him in the primary.). He knows that this is an off-year election, and turnout is expected to be low. He also knows that democrats are consistently more motivated than republicans when it comes to voting in an off-year election. And, he knows that Bredesen is well liked among democrats and many republicans as well. So, he’s counting on...

FaceBook Dog & Pony Show?

»Posted by on Apr 12, 2018 in Announcements, Words from the Chairman | 0 comments

I’ve been hearing a lot of comments the last couple days –rightly or not — about the need for the government to intervene and regulate Facebook because it’s a monopoly. The problem with that is twofold; 1) F.B. is a privately owned business that uses public airways to supply a service to the public. If you don’t like your private affairs shared, then either don’t post them online or find another social media outlet. There are other forms of social media the public has access to, and there’s no requirement to use F.B.. It’s the consumer’s choice to either continuing using F.B. or go to another media source. And besides, everyone of us have “signed” a user agreement that tells us our information can...
