Congratulations to Karen Cuellar!
Upon receiving the award Saturday August 24th in Tulsa, she said
“Humbled/honored/grateful/undeserving. I absolutely loved getting this tonight and standing beside and among so many great selfless liberty lovers. Thomas Paine, my favorite, so perfect and fitting: “If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.” Thank you for your encouragement, example, and giving my weary self the nudge I needed to continue the fight.”
With Joanna Francisco TC Ryan Ronda Vuillemont-Smith Josh Oldham David Oldham Nancy Humphreys Doc Liberty – you guys rock!

Washington County Precinct Meeting February 7 at 7 PM
Oklahoma GOP website (you can sign up for email online)
From the About page on Oklahoma GOP website:
History: Since 1906, the Oklahoma Republican Party has been working to make Oklahoma a better place for families and businesses to prosper. The OKGOP represents the values of most Oklahomans. We are the party of lower taxes, smaller government, personal empowerment, and individual responsibility.
The Republican Party has grown to become a powerful force in Oklahoma today. During the 2008 election cycle, the McCain-Palin ticket won 65.4% of the vote in OK, the highest percentage in the nation, thereby giving Oklahoma the title of “Reddest State in the Country.” In 2010, the OKGOP had the most successful election cycle for Oklahoma Republicans in state history- sweeping all eight statewide races, including Governor, and expanding majorities in both the state house and senate.
As Ronald Reagan put it, “A political party is a mechanical structure created to further a cause. The cause, not the mechanism, brings and holds the members together. I believe the Republican Party can hold and should provide the political mechanism through which the goals of the majority of Americans can be achieved.”
Statement of Principles:
We believe in limited government, individual liberty, and personal moral responsibility.
We believe Oklahoma should be a place of opportunity where people who work hard and abide by the rules can pursue their own dreams with a reasonable expectation of success.
As Republicans we believe:

He has recommended $1 Trillion in the first year of his presidency and eliminate 5 departments including the department of education. Enjoy his refreshing comments amidst a very friendly crowd at the Reagan dinner in Iowa.

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!
