Grassroots Republicans Welcome Victories!

…But Urge Continued Action Following Elections

Tuesday began with many people wondering whether it would be a “good night” and exactly how the elections would turn out. The results were generally as expected, with Republicans winning back the U.S. House of Representatives and sweeping the state offices in Oklahoma.

The 2009 Tea Party movement occurred well before the primary season, vocalizing the general sentiment to “throw the bums out”. The initial battle cry was to start over with a new crop of elected officials. However, this election resulted in an expulsion of many Democrat incumbents while a majority of Republican incumbents retained their seats or moved onto higher office. In Oklahoma, for example, Tea Party groups decried stimulus packages and bailout votes, yet TARP supporter Rep. Mary Fallin won the Oklahoma Governor’s race by a wide margin on Tuesday.

Republicans have been presented with a double-edged sword of opportunity with Tuesday’s victories. Republican officials have been presented with a historic mandate to reverse policies and return to basic Constitutional principles. The Republican grassroots have shown their ability to get out the vote, make their voices heard, and effect a sea-change in government.

Although Tuesday may seem at first glance to have been a major victory, the potential exists for voters to sit back trusting the new Republican majority to take up the fight in defense of the Constitution.

“The nation is at a tipping point,” R3publicans’ board member Porter Davis explained. The fact that so many incumbent Republicans were returned to office presents the real possibility that they will not make good on their campaign promises, that their votes will be similar to their records when they were in power during President Bush’s term.

“R3publicans urges all Oklahomans interested in a limited, Constitutional government to maintain vigilance over their elected officials and prepare to hold their feet to the fire once they take office in January,” noted R3publican co-founder Sandra Crosnoe.

About R3publicans:  R3publicans is a grassroots network of activists working together to restore the Republic.  The group is based in Oklahoma and networked around the country.  The group’s focus is limited government, Constitutional principles and free market ideas. R3publican’s most recent project in Oklahoma was working with the organization, OK-SAFE,  to distribute their election summary guide “Positions On Oklahoma State Questions”.

Corporate Greed or would it be better titled International Bankers at Work

alternate title: International Bankers at Work brought to you by Bush and Company

A video about corporate greed – or is it simply about us? The slide at the end says that no raindrop believes it is responsible for the flood. I would submit to you that we are all complicit and we need to repent and turn individually and corporately – quickly. Please watch this video and let me know what you think.

I want to hear your comments and your input below or via email!/sc

Video – When Right and Left Meet

The recent Wall Street Bailout bill outlined the real divide in American politics, in which the hard Right and hard Left are often pitted against the big government, corporate center. Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich are on the side of the people whereas McCain and Obama are on the side of big business and big government.



[Editor’s note: Gotta watch this one! – the Southern Avenger nails it on the bailout and speaks the truth about the new political alignment on the horizon although not mentioned by name, we are R3publicans – restoring the republic – we will (right after we END the FED!). . .]

Buzz up! It’s painful for us in the mainstream media to concede points to the online blogosphere, but sometimes things are the way they are. Recently, except for bloggers, most media, online or otherwise, pretty much ignored another egregious executive power grab by the Bush administration, this time in the potential use of active military units
