Our principles are simple:
1. Restore the Constitution as the supreme law of the land as intended by the founders
2. Hold politicians accountable for their actions
3. Get government out of business. The defining characteristic of Fascism is government control of business.
4. Restore the 10th Amendment (the State's Rights Amendment)
Betweem 100 and 150 freedom lovers braved temperatures of 30 degrees and turned out to hear Sheriff Richard Mack speak about why the county sheriff is the most powerful elected official and why he alone must stand up to the ever increasing federal incursion into our lives.
The U.S. Constitution requires that every elected official take an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution, including our county sheriff. The sad thing is that most of them either do not understand or do not care to honor the oath they just swore to uphold. The words to them are nothing but a required but otherwise meaningless step to obtaining their office (and the attendant government paycheck) and to amass power to move toward attaining their next (and more powerful) political objective.
The U.S. Constitution charges officials to protect the rights of the people. Sheriff Mack reminded us that many sheriffs and other elected officials simply enforce the dictates of their political bosses while ignoring the duties imposed upon them by the U.S. Constitution.
Some sheriffs (notably in Wyoming) do understand and have successfully repelled unconstitutional operations by the IRS and other federal bureaucracies to take action against individuals for political purposes, trampling their Constitutional rights in the process.
Sheriff Mack cited as an example the incident in Texas where Texas governor Rick Perry illegally seized over 400 children from their parents at an LDS compound in West Texas based upon an anonymous tip that later proved to be false. Perry ordered the children taken to the rogue CPS agency. After the parents filed a lawsuit, the children were released back to their parents, but we can only speculate the damage that may have been done to these innocent children on behalf of an out of control bureaucrat who has his sights set on higher political office including, potentially, the presidency.
Debra Medina then spoke and assured us that she would uphold the Constitution, scrap the current property tax system as a means for funding our schools, and called for the arrogant Perry Aristocracy to allow Texans to hear all candidates for governor. Freedom loving Texans must unite behind Debra Medina and elect her as Texas governor so she can start cleaning house and restoring freedom in Texas.
Among other things, our founding document, The Declaration of Independence, makes the following challenge to the people:
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. --Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government.
The peaceful way to accomplish that challenge is to throw out despots like Rick Perry and many other elected career politicians and even local officials who are content to feed at the public trough their entire lives.
Why Guadalupe County sheriff Arnold Zwicke failed to show up at our States Rights Tea Party, especially since he had previously agreed to introduce Sheriff Mack, is a point worthy of speculation. My sense is that Sheriff Zwicke was either told to stay away by statist GOP officials (and you know who you are) in Guadalupe county or he is just another statist who is more concerned with violating the rights of the citizens of Guadalupe County and extracting money from these same people in the name of justice and is not interested in disrupting the flow of money into the county's coffers.
I will leave the judgement thereof to the reader and challenge someone who attended the Tea Party make certain that Sheriff Zwicke gets a copy of Sheriff Mack's book so that he understands the seriousness of the requirements and restraints placed upon him when he swore to uphold the U.S. Constitution.
This is what they did — these climate “scientists” on whose unsupported word the world’s classe politique proposes to set up an unelected global government this December in Copenhagen, with vast and unprecedented powers to control all formerly free markets, to tax wealthy nations and all of their financial transactions, to regulate the economic and environmental affairs of all nations, and to confiscate and extinguish all patent and intellectual property rights.
The tiny, close-knit clique of climate scientists who invented and now drive the “global warming” fraud — for fraud is what we now know it to be — tampered with temperature data so assiduously that, on the recent admission of one of them, land temperatures since 1980 have risen twice as fast as ocean temperatures. One of the thousands of emails recently circulated by a whistleblower at the University of East Anglia, where one of the world’s four global-temperature datasets is compiled, reveals that data were altered so as to prevent a recent decline in temperature from showing in the record. In fact, there has been no statistically significant “global warming” for 15 years — and there has been rapid and significant cooling for nine years.
Anyone using Facebook can hardly miss all of the posts for people playing the game Farmville. But, just like many of our politicians, few people want to play the game by the rules. Thus a mini-industry has evolved that develops applications to cheat or hack the game Farmville.

Judge Andrew Napolitano interviews Debra Medina on Freedom Watch.
This Republican agrees with Judge Napolitano that our political system is not a two party state as
both parties would have us believe. Rather, it is a one party system, the Big Government Party, with two slightly different approaches to Big Government control of our lives.

Defenders of Liberty "Forget trying to change the current parties from within"
GOOOH (pronounced "go"), or Get Out of Our House, has come up with a plan to replace all 435 representatives from the House of Congress with candidates carefully vetted and selected by the citizens of their district. Although the plan is not perfect, it is the best plan currently available, in DOLI's view, for replacing corrupt politicians and reviving our nation.
You may be asking yourself why DOLI would not recommend changing the current parties from within to more acurately reflect their constituents. Changing the major parties from within is a noble goal, however, in our view, the parties have already ignored the ever-increasing voices of their constituents. Corruption runs deep in both major parties and DOLI believes that a new group of representatives chosen to represent the voice of their constituents will do a much better job than the old group who know the workings of the House. Additionally, several of the Founding Fathers expressed concern over a party system. We do not believe that career politicians can vote better than the average citizen who is not influenced by special interests or re-election blues.
We invite you to find out more about the GOOOH plan and take action accordingly.

The hypocrisy these days is sickening, not from the politicians; we all know they’re a bunch of criminals who couldn’t care less about their victims. No, I’m speaking of the rank hypocrisy from the victims – republicans and democrats alike. The attention on government health care is as unrelenting as the hypocrisy.
“Democrats” claim government mandated insurance is humane because people shouldn’t die because they don’t have health insurance. "Republicans” talk about liberty, that people should not be forced to buy a product or service. Really, where have I heard that before?
Rush Limbaugh and some other “conservative” radio hosts are talking about this being the first time in American history Americans would be forced to pay for a service. What??? Apparently Rush has never heard of an obscure group calling themselves "government"?
Government is a service you’re forced pay for. How did that escape the most brilliant “conservative” minds?
How can republicans/conservatives and democrats/liberals talk about being humane and loving liberty? If there was no delay on radio and call screeners, maybe we’d hear people on air calling these guys on their glaring hypocrisy.
Let me make this perfectly clear: if you believe there should be government, then you’re neither humane nor a lover of liberty.
I don’t care if that angers you; as long as you advocate any level of government you are inhumane and an enemy of liberty. Statist (democrat, republican etc.) claims of being humane and lovers of liberty are vox et preterea nihil, as empty as the political campaign promises you always believe.
I’m sick of the usual political deflections and personal attacks when we, lovers of humanity and liberty, point out the truth, truth you already know; but refuse to apply to your owners. That’s right, the politicians own you and you know it. You rant and vent your anger towards people who actually love liberty instead of directing your contempt at the ones stealing your energy to the tune of TRILLIONS every year.
Here’s the truth you keep hiding from: Taxation is compulsory. Is that really so difficult for your government schooled mind to accept? We all know this; but you call me an idiot insisting I move to Afghanistan rather than you being an adult and accepting this simple truth and what it means. Sean Hannity always says, “Elections have consequences people.” Funny thing though, paying taxes has consequences too, Sean.
And what does it mean? Despite all your voting, you don’t voluntarily support governments. Governments have no voluntary support; they are violent parasites - no one wants them. I don’t care how much you think you do, you’re only deluding yourself.
Do you really believe people who force you to pay them are even remotely interested in protecting you? Think about that for a minute; stop watching “reality” TV or texting and really think about that.
They force you to pay them; what does that tell you about their nature? What kind of people force themselves on others? Democrats pretend to be concerned for those who cannot afford health insurance while conveniently ignoring the violence inflicted everyday by a group of men and women no one voluntarily supports. Conservatives pretend to abhor the use of violence to make people pay for insurance while cheerleading the same violence when used to pay for weapons of mass destruction.
I’ve pointed out how politicians admit they have no duty to protect you and instead of being angry with them you get angry with me. Here it is again, “Police have no statutory duty to do anything.” Souza v. City of Antioch, 4/30/1997, 2 Cal. App. 3d 1090, 284 Cal. Rptr. 16.
Do you get it now? There are hundreds of such examples governments have no duty to protect you. You know support for governments is always compulsory. This isn’t some wild “conspiracy theory”; TAXES ARE COMPULSORY; pay or you’ll see who really owns you.
What has to happen before you realize governments are never benevolent? What does it take before you grow up and stop attacking people who point out this irrefutable truth? I could shake your faith in God easier than your faith in government.
They force you to pay for "protection" while admitting they’re not there to protect you. And what do you do? You get mad and call me an idiot and a liar.
So if you still believe governments should exist, then do us lovers of freedom a favor; stop pretending you are humane and love liberty. Grow up - own your depravity.
Because those who truly love liberty are not fooled by your hypocrisy.
Hot Air blog tells us that Republican voters have lost confidence in their elected leaders. This is a surprise to anyone? Many of us have been screaming this fact to the GOP hierarchy for years now but no one listens. I for one do not expect this to change. Liberty loving activists in the Republican party continue to be disparaged by the party elite to this day. So much for their highly regarded "Big Tent" policy.
From Hot Air
"President Obama told an audience at a Democratic Party fundraiser Wednesday night that Republicans often “do what they’re told,” but GOP voters don’t think their legislators listen enough to them.
Just 15% of Republicans who plan to vote in 2012 state primaries say the party’s representatives in Congress have done a good job of representing Republican values.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 73% think Republicans in Congress have lost touch with GOP voters from throughout the nation. Twelve percent (12%) are undecided…
Republican women are nearly twice as likely as men to say their representatives in Congress have done a good job of representing GOP values."
Constitution Party presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin's list of America's greatest presidents:
1) George Washington: America's greatest President, without whom this republic would not exist. His "Farewell Address" is the greatest political speech ever delivered on American soil and should be regarded as "must-reading" for every American citizen.
2) Thomas Jefferson: America's greatest defender of individual liberty and states' rights.
3) James Monroe: for his leadership in establishing America's strategically important "Monroe Doctrine."
4) Andrew Jackson: for standing up against the bankers.
5) John Tyler: for defying his own party (Whigs) and twice vetoing the incorporation of the US Bank. And also for supporting the Southern cause for secession.
6) Grover Cleveland: for his honesty and devotion to the US Constitution.
7) Calvin Coolidge: for his dogged determination to limit taxes and federal

Wouldn't it be great if more of our alleged leaders had the courage to defy the party leaders like John Tyler and Andrew Jackson? Sorry, I guess I am only dreaming.
