This just in via email from Wayne Hill:
Here is the notice for our March meeting this Thursday evening (March 22) at 6:30. Our quest speakers will be State Senator Nathan Dahm who is a US Congressional Candidate for the 1st District. Senator Dahm is a strong supporter of Liberty and the 2nd Amendment. He is the author and sponsor of many of our bills. Please come and show your support for our friend Senator Natham Dahm. We will also have a legislative update.
Please invite your friends and relatives.
Several bloggers are collaborating on this analysis and shocking information regarding voting records during the recent special session. Here are the votes reviewed:
You can see the whole spreadsheet here:
Just look at all those R’s below 50% — not a pretty picture at all!
Me thinks we have some HOUSEcleaning todo…
Special thanks to the hero’s listed at the top and featured in the graphic!
Recently Senator Nathan Dahm kicked off his campaign for Congress in Broken Arrow. Special thanks to Bryan Mayberry for capturing the event on video for us. I believe Nathan is running for all the right reasons with a solid voting record to confirm that he is the right man for this job — not only that he actually reads the bills! He has my vote and my prayers and all that I can do to help.
For Life and For Liberty, Sandra Crosnoe
He is the right man for this job.

Trump says a lot in a few words “We must do a lot more with less” Hiring freezes are already in place and he is working on a cabinet that knows how to manage wisely. All this bodes well for the overworked American taxpayer.
Congratulations to Mick Mulvaney — here’s the backstory and some insight into how good he is as an appointment —
“Part of the job is saying ‘no,'” Mulvaney told The Post and Courier on Friday, less than 24 hours after being sworn in as the new Director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Color me livid. We have lost before we even get started if we don’t correct this matter.
Let me see if I can show you how this game actually works.
Case 1: I say lets cut taxes 20% and you come back with how about 10% and we settle on 15%. You think you won because we cut taxes a little. Spending wasn’t reduced one iota in this scenario! The revenue will have to be raised somehow by this generation or the next.
Amount saved 0%
Case 2: What if the opening gambit had been let’s cut spending 20% and you come back with how about 10% and we settle on 15%. In this scenario we both won and spending was actually reduced a little right here and now.
Amount saved 15%
Do you see the difference? Please think about it. Shift the conversation. Talking about taxes is a trap and you loose no matter what the compromise position is. Here’s a sample letter if it helps you get started:
I don’t want to hear another word about taxes.
Not one single solitary word.
Don’t even think about raising them – not on me and not on my neighbors either!
Don’t come to any of us asking for more money. We are united on this matter.
You already have plenty.
You simply have not learned to prioritize correctly.
It is really pretty easy.
Do not spend more money than you have. Do not ask me for more.
Let’s see how much government we can cut before anyone (not on the payroll actually misses any of it).
Thank you for getting our spending priorities in order and balancing our budget. It is after all what we elected you to do.
Oh I long for the day when the lamb will lie down with the lion, but we are not there yet! Here is a look at history from the perspective of before the age of American imperialism to now. I found the article to be insightful and hope you do to! Blessings/sc
The Pivot Back to Liberty
By Chris Rossini
Sincere advocates of liberty need to travel a tough and rugged path. Surrounded by the darkness of empire and its draconian reach into all aspects of our lives, champions of liberty must keep their eyes on the prize without becoming despondent.
This can be challenging in a society that has come to rely so heavily on the state. The ideas of liberty are hardly ever considered an option. Often they’re even frowned upon.
How does one deal with such a situation? Once you understand the principles of liberty, you can’t just give up on them and pretend they don’t exist. So how does one grapple with times that are so deleterious to liberty?
The easiest way is to contemplate the big picture. If there’s one thing about life, it’s that it hardly ever moves in one direction for very long. Pivots and reversals regularly occur and often when they’re least expected.
In fact, prior to the formation of the American empire, it was the warmongers themselves who were despondent. They were the ones who had to live with the reality that their ideas were not an option.
It’s hard to imagine, isn’t it?
