TTTT Takeaway Activism and Notes – October 2012

This month’s TTTT was kept short to allow the attendees to leave in time for the 2nd 2012 Presidential Debate.  Folks were encouraged to attend a watch party at either Jo Ann Emerson’s office or Beef O’Brady’s restaurant in Cape Girardeau.  The owners there were kind enough to provide a room for CCTP to watch the debate, eat, drink, and be merry.

Speaker Notes:

Our speaker this month was Kara Clark Summers, Cape Girardeau County Clerk, and she spoke on the responsibilities, requirements, and activities of Poll Watchers.  Cape County Tea Party is working with the local Political Parties to ensure that as many Polling Locations in Cape Girardeau County as possible are staffed with Poll Watchers.  Please consider being a Poll Watcher… …and contact Brian Bollmann or your Political Party Chair to sign-up.

TTTT Takeaway Activism and Notes – September 2012

I’m just a little late with the documentation from the September Third Tuesday Tea Time meeting held on 9/18/2012.

Speaker Notes

Our first speaker for the night was to be Frieda Keough with the Missouri Precinct Project.  Unfortunately, she was under the weather and could not attend this month’s meeting.  Fortunately, we had planned on two speakers for the night, so our second speaker, Phillip S. Griffin II, was able to fill in the void.

Here is his bio / introduction:

Our second speaker tonight started practicing law in 1992 and started his own law firm in August 1998.  He has a general law practice specializing in many areas.  He regularly serves as local counsel for law firms from Virginia Beach, Richmond, Fredericksburg, Charlottesville, Roanoke, Baltimore, Bethesda, Pittsburg, and Charleston.  He has clients all over the country. He has appeared in more than 40 different Virginia state courts, the Court of Appeals, the Virginia Supreme Court, five Federal courts, and the 4th Circuit (covering several southern states).

Our speaker has served as counsel for a Who’s Who list of American politicians including John Thune, Saxby Chambliss, Virgil Goode… …John McCain and Sarah Palin in Tampa, Florida… …Senator Scott Brown, Senator Marco Rubio, Pat Toomey, John Raese, Glen Urgheart, Governor Chris Christie, Governor Ehrlich, Governor Rick Scott, Governor Rick Perry, Attorney General Jerry Kilgore, Senator George Allen former Attorney General Robert McDonnell, Governor Bob McDonnell, Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.

In both 2003 and 2006, our speaker was named a Businessman of the Year honoree by the National Republican Congressional Committee.

In his spare time he runs local races, was named SVR runner of the year for 2006 and 2009, has run four marathons, plays tennis, skis and previously coached little league baseball and BRYSA soccer.

He has four (4) children ages 8 to 14, and resides in downtown Winchester, VA.

Freida’s bio / introduction goes like this:

Born and raised in Germany, our first speaker tonight came to this country in the late 60’s. The Germany she left was very pro-American.

Having lived her formative years through the end of World War II, the total chaos of the German collapse, and the aftermath of the 3rd Reich, she always wanted to get away from Communism.

She was always politically involved but did not see the need to become an American citizen until 2007, and then, of course, her very first presidential election was very disturbing.

She realized, like a lot of us, that she could not just sit back and watch things but had to get involved.

Thus, she and two other concerned citizens, Anita Foelsch and Judy Sofka formed the Missouri Precinct Project.  The precinct is the smallest sub-division of our government and that is where we have to get involved to change things from the bottom up.

Their goals are to:

  • Educate and inform citizens
  • Encourage better voter turnout
  • Increased voter registration
  • Urge citizens to pay more attention to their local governments.

Phillip spoke to the issues with voter fraud and election monitoring giving the example that during the recall election in Wisconsin, the Republicans blanked the state with 35 lawyers to monitor for fraud… …the Democrats… …400 lawyers.

He also discussed precinct organization and provided the information below.  It is specific to the State of Virginia but is apropos, in general, to our efforts.

SEMO Homecoming Parade – 10/20/2012

Below are the pictures I took as we enjoyed our 2nd Tea Party entry into the SEMO Homecoming Parade.

This was the kick-off of our Here’s Your Bill project.  After handing out hundreds of our Flyers, we were happy to see that only a few were left laying on the ground post-parade!  Yes, we did pick them up.

Just Happened To:

By Don Fredrick
September 30, 2012

Obama just happened to know 60s far-left radical revolutionary William Ayers, whose father just happened to be Thomas Ayers, who just happened to be a close friend of Obama’s communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis, who just happened to work at the communist-sympathizing Chicago Defender with Vernon Jarrett, who just happened to later become the father-in-law of Iranian-born leftist Valerie Jarrett, who Obama just happened to choose as his closest White House advisor, and who just happened to have been CEO of Habitat Company, which just happened to manage public housing in Chicago, which just happened to get millions of dollars from the Illinois state legislature, and which just happened not to properly maintain the housing—which eventually just happened to require demolition.

P.S. If Obama just happens to win reelection on November 6, remember that hyperinflation just happens to be the inescapable consequence of printing trillions of dollars to cover massive government deficits.

Obama Inherited A Recision On 01/19/2009 That Was Over By 06/30/2009

Obama keeps reminding us that he inherited the ‘Worst Recession Since The Great Depression’.  Mr. Obama, if it was so damn bad, why did it only last 18 months and why was it over just 5 short months after you took office!?!

Bottom line; your policies are fully responsible for the tepid rebound since the recession:

How Tax Cuts Work

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill for all ten comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this:

 

  • The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
  • The fifth would pay $1.
  • The sixth would pay $3.
  • The seventh would pay $7.
  • The eighth would pay $12.
  • The ninth would pay $18.
  • The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.
  • So, that’s what they decided to do.

The ten men drank in the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day, the owner threw them a curve.

‘Since you are all such good customers,’ he said, ‘I’m going to reduce the cost of your daily beer by $20. ‘Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.

h/t revenue.alabama.gov

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected. They would still drink for free. But what about the other six men – the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 windfall so that everyone would get his ‘fair share?’ They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they subtracted that from everybody’s share, then the fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid to drink his beer. So, the bar owner suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man’s bill by roughly the same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.

And so:

  • The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).
  • The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings).
  • The seventh now pay $5 instead of $7 (28%savings).
  • The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings).
  • The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 ( 22% savings).
  • The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).

Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued to drink for free. But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings.

‘I only got a dollar out of the $20,’ declared the sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man,’ but he got $10!

”Yeah, that’s right,’ exclaimed the fifth man. ‘I only saved a dollar, too. It’s unfair that he got ten times more than I!! ”That’s true!!’ shouted the seventh man. ‘Why should he get $10 back when I got only two? The wealthy get all the breaks!’

‘Wait a minute,’ yelled the first four men in unison. ‘We didn’t get anything at all. The system exploits the poor!!!’

The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up. The next night the tenth man didn’t show up for drinks, so the nine sat down and had beers without him. But when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered something important. They didn’t have enough money between all of them for even half of the bill!!!!!

And that, boys and girls, journalists and college professors, is how our tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

For those who understand, no explanation is needed. For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.

The Real Obama Tax Increase

If the voters authorize your subdivision association to spend $10.00 per year, and they spend $11.00 per year.  That’s a $1.00 increase in taxes that dwellers will be required to pay.  It’s a 10% tax increase.

Now magnify that to the scale of Obama’s 4 years.*  American’s authorized the Federal Government to spend $9,836,745,000,000… …yes, that’s almost $10 Trillion.

Barack Obama and the Democrats spent $14,658,185,000,000 — that’s $14.6 Trillion!

By the logic in the 1st sentence, that’s a $4,821,440,000,000 TAX INCREASE!  Per citizen, that’s a $15,306.16 Tax Increase… …a 49% tax increase.  It’s $4,000 per family just for the interest on Obama’s debt

So much for lowering taxes on 98% of all Americans.

*This reflects fiscal years 2010 – 2013 over which the President presided.

It’s Time To Get Some Skin In The Game!

What have you done to affect the outcome of this election?

Have you stepped outside of your comfort zone?

Made an effort to change minds?

Made an effort to get out the vote?

It’s time to get some skin in the game.

.

h/t gopcampaigner.com

We are nearing in on 30 days until the election, and it will take every last Conservative, Freedom-Minded World citizen to steer America away the socialistic, freedom-crushing, citizen-enslaving, out-of-control Federal Government envisioned by our current President.  I purposely say World Citizen because the outcome of this election affects every person on the planet.  As America goes, so goes the planet.  The choice couldn’t be starker: Freedom vs Enslavement.

In 2008, I made my first phone calls during the primary for Mitt Romney… …because I realized that John McCain was a terrible choice as a candidate for the Republican Party.  I’m a computer geek, and I had no idea what I was doing.  It was outside my comfort zone.  But, I did it anyway.  It’s THAT important!

So, it’s time to get involved. There’s no more waiting!

How can you get skin in the game?

  • Door-To-Door
  • Phone Banks
  • Email
  • Print Media
  • Street Signs
  • Absentee Voter Recruitment
  • Direct Mail
  • Leafleting
  • Election Day Mobilization
  • Robo-Calls
  • Education and Policitcal Socialization
  • Radio Ads
  • Television Ads

According to a Yale study:

Across a number of mobilization experiments, one consistent finding is that more personalized messages are more effective in mobilizing voters. When Donald Green and Alan Gerber put forth this generalized finding in Get Out the Vote!: A Guide for Candidates and Campaigns (2004), they contended that door-to-door canvassing was the most consistently effective and efficient method of voter mobilization, and they suggested that the success of canvassing could be attributed to the personal, face-to-face delivery of the GOTV messages. In recent years, this finding has proven to be robust. More recently, however, experiments of professional and volunteer phone calls (Nickerson 2006b; Arceneaux 2006; Arceneaux and Nickerson 2006) have suggested that personalized messages delivered in a conversational manner over the phone may be as effective (and cost-effective) as canvassing.

So, the top two methods to Get Out The Vote and influence the voter are activities you can complete in your own neighborhood or on your own phone!  Even better, if you can make calls from home into the Swing States, your efforts are magnified!

Where and how can I get involved to make calls or go door-to-door?
(I’m sorry to 3rd parties, but I believe we need to first send Obama back to his mansion in Hawaii)

Get to it! There is no more time. Get some skin in the game. Change voters minds. Get Out The Vote!

(People have asked me ‘what can I do’… …well this is it!)
