You mean to tell me we can tax them for not buying tea?

|1st Floor Rotunda at State Capital. NON Violent, NON Partisan Gathering of concerned OK Citizens standing up for our 4th Amendment rights. Speakers: Amanda Teegarden, Executive Director OK-SAFE, MC and Ryan Kiesel, Director OK ACLU, and Amy Stepanovich, EPIC Drone Policy and Privacy Expert. The time is quickly running out for us to stand up for our constitutional rights. If we don’t speak up we will never be heard.|
Sandra Crosnoe for Republican National Delegate 2012 (this is a pdf version)
What draws us together as Republicans are our core principles and our shared values:
We are for limited constitutional government and for free markets and for a lot less government.
We support the second amendment — the right to keep and bear arms.
Of course we are prolife — because every life is precious and a gift from God!
Here’s an open letter to share with friends going to the Republican Party District 01 Convention in Tulsa this weekend. I am asking for your vote and your prayers and your support in this effort. Thank you for all you do for life and for liberty in our land!
Dear Republican Friends/Leadership,
Most of you know me from things we have worked on together or via websites/blogs/emails/ and our mutual efforts to get our country back on course. I would love to represent you and serve in the capacity of a delegate to the National GOP Convention this year. I believe my experience serves the party well in this role. Most know that I have worked tirelessly to move the ship of state in the ‘right’ direction. I place core principles and operating philosophy above party, because I believe that is what will best grow our party and solve the tremendous problems we face. While Christian values will always trump party politics, I think that is what makes our party the hope of the nation — because we do honor ethics and values in our party. Sure we need to do better and we will as we challenge one another in the process and as we shine the light on matters.
We as a party must now come to a consensus and work together in the days ahead not only to defeat Obama, but to elect principled conservative, Republicans up and down the ladder. You know me and that I will continue to work to get out the truth and build our party around core principles. On that you can rest assured. In addition to that, I will continue to work to keep people involved in productive ways. There is much we all agree on and much left for us to debate as we work toward difficult economic solutions ahead and get our businesses set free from over-reaching regulations so that they can truly prosper and innovate and create jobs. We need less government — a lot less government!
Through the years I have served on most committees and in most volunteer roles available in campaigns and relative to issues advocacy in the Republican Party both in Texas and now in Oklahoma. In recent years, I have focused on communications networks and mentoring future leaders. I appreciate the many people and the countless hours that go into making our party great. You are a part of that process. Thank you! Together, we must hold our own people and our own party accountable to our platform and core principles even as we challenge our opponents on substantive matters.
It is important what we say and how we say it. The message and the actions must line up! I helped with some of the original teaparty efforts and rallies and became widely known for social networking; training and mentoring others all along the way. I will work with you to continue to grow our party and I believe that in doing so we will all help to Restore the Republic in the process. This will cause others to join us and actively engage as they see that we mean business and we mean what we say.
I ask for your support to be a delegate to the Republican National Convention to be held in Tampa later this year. I will do my best to represent you well and will work with with others to reach consensus on what is truly best for our party and our nation. We will achieve our common goals together. We must. The very future of the nation depends upon us doing so.

My personal bio online About: Sandra Crosnoe
Occasionally people wander into your life and change your life forever. I have been blessed with some truly remarkable friends through the course of my life, today I want to introduce you to Shelli Dawdy. If you follow this blog, you recently saw a post of a stop motion video by Tarah Dawdy a gifted budding young artist and photographer. Her mom and I have become good friends as a result of the Lord really because we both have a calling inside the political arena serving the Lord and His people in the process to the best of our abilities.
Shelli and her family live in Nebraska where she leads a group called Grassroots in Nebraska and together we share projects and information via the Constitutional Liberty Coalition and R3publicans. What some people may not know is that she not only organizes events, leads coalition efforts, writes and publishes online, but she homeschools her children. Recently after reading a very misleading article in a local paper, she wrote a series of articles about some apparently widespread misconceptions about our founding fathers and moral relativism. I believe you will find them educational and inspiring and sharable. You definitely will come away knowing that moral values are inherent to a free society. If we continue in moral decline, we will be enslaved. On the other hand we could choose to follow the Lord because ‘where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.‘ II Cor 3:17b
Thank you Shelli for a wonderful series and for all you do for life and liberty for all of us!

I salute you from afar David Hall! I especially thank God for placing the bell in your hands so that many could ring the bell and learn about what real freedom is indeed! Thank you for placing the bell between the Ten Commandments right where it should be.
To be free from the bondage of sin and death; what liberty is that?
Almost incomprehensible to our human minds, but our spirits soar with the knowledge of His rescue and Life in our midst. May you know Him and His resurrection power and His Life everlasting!

Proclaim Liberty – Ring the Bell for more information and to contact David Hall
At the time of this post over 46,000 people have viewed this video. Countless more have actually seen and rung the bell as David Hall and his family have made an effort to honor our fallen heroes whenever he could be there with the Liberty Bell. Please thank him in person or online and help him in this important calling where your paths cross with his.
I mourn with David at the recent loss of his mother, Vivian Hall, a lady who knew and loved the Lord and her family well. Vivian raised them to walk in His footsteps and do great things and touch many in His service. I celebrate with David the blessing of her life and treasure moments with the entire Hall family through the years.
