America’s Last Stand

America’s Last Stand

On behalf of the Sevier County Tea Party (SCTP), I would like to thank everyone who attended our event, America’s Last Stand. I think the purpose of the event was well received; we need to reach out to the populous at large, and encourage them to at least get involved in the voting process. Since the event, I’ve heard nothing but positive comments, and an understanding that we do indeed need to reach out to our friends, families, and neighbors to remind them that the government derives its power from the consent of the govern, and that We the People are not subjects of the government. If we can successfully remind folks of that premise and get them to re-engage, we will most certainly be on our way to returning our nation to the constitutional...

Thomas More Law Center News Alert

»Posted by on May 16, 2014 in Words from Past Chairmen | 0 comments

As you are (hopefully) aware, states have passed Amendments to their respective Constitutions defining marriage between one man and one woman. Each time, leftist activists have filed complaints with federal courts, and the courts have routinely overturned the will of the people. Federal courts are allowing the minority to govern the majority, dictating todays social norms by judicial fiat. The courts are justifying immorality under the guise of fairness. This is nothing short of judicial activism, destroying our culture, morals, and our American way of life. But good men and women never give up the fight. I received the following notice from the Thomas More Law Center. Read this short email, and pray for their success. In Liberty, Steve Osborn SCTP Chairman...

It Only Took 97 Seconds For This Congressman To Destroy Obama Over The Benghazi Scandal

Republican Congressman Tom Cotton appeared on the House floor to call out the Democrats for their fake outrage. “Four Americans lost their lives that night in Benghazi. They deserve justice, and the American people deserve the truth. One other lesson I learned in the Army is we leave no man behind. And we will not leave these four men behind.” Read more at http://www.westernjournalism.com/tom-cotton-rips-democrats-fake-outrage-benghazi-investigation/#iR1ipKS1FKliOqSh.99 Republican Congressman Tom Cotton appeared on the House floor to call out the Democrats for their fake outrage. “Four Americans lost their lives that night in Benghazi.

Where Was The Tea Party

»Posted by on May 9, 2014 in Words from Past Chairmen | 0 comments

Members, There were several primaries for Washington D.C. offices this week, and tea party candidates were on the ballots in many of those races. Every one of them got a shellacking. Who would have thought that Boehner would be re-elected, especially after his plans to push amnesty was exposed? Even though Mitch McConnell has a tea party-backed challenger receiving campaign contributions from out of state, Mitch maintains a solid lead at this point. So where has the tea party been? One would think that after the republican establishment declared war on the tea party, we would know who our “enemy” really is, and have the fighting spirit stirring in our spirits. Admiral Yamamoto of the Japanese Imperial Navy knew what his attack on Pearl Harbor would...

Abuse of Power

Abuse of Power

Anyone who isn’t brain dead knows Obama has nearly fulfilled his 2008 promise to fundamentally transform America. It’s now evident that Obama thinks that as president, he has the authority to disregard our system of equal branches of government, and rule like a third-world tyrant. Sadly, and just as disturbing as Obama’s actions, many in congress are collaborating with Obama. Others, for whatever reason, are afraid to act, let alone publicly criticize him and his cronies.  A minority in congress who have been calling Obama’s action unlawful and tried to stop some of his actions were demeaned by members of their own party. That minority has the support of the populous, and they are now political stars. On May 8, 2014, Senator Ted Cruz...

Old Butch

Old Butch

Here is an object lesson in Political Philosophy:   Fred was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young ‘pullets,’ and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs. He kept records, and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced. This took a lot of time, so he bought some tiny bells and attached them to his roosters. Each bell had a different tone, so he could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing. Now, he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells. Fred’s favorite rooster, old Butch, was a very fine specimen, but this morning he noticed old Butch’s bell hadn’t rung at all! When he went to investigate, he saw the other roosters were busy chasing...
