#Election #VoterFraud will be more rampant and blatant, we are already seeing it in #Florida & #Michigan

I have said for some time that #VoterFraud will continue to grow as Democrats get more emboldened and therefore more open and blatant with their Fraud because they know the #GOP, the supposed #RuleOfLaw Party, will continue to let them get away with it without any real pushback. No…See More

#Michigan #Prop2 - Will NOT end GerryMandering of Congressional Districts...

#Michigan Prop2 - "supposed anti-GerryMandering" initiative....People need to understand/realize (and the ProProp2 folks rely on many Peoples' ignorance of the Law/topic) that, technically speaking, it is virtually REQUIRED BY LAW.

Our Venom is Our Vote

Rattle With Us is a TEA Party that was birthed on April 15th, 2009. Our first rallies were on Haggerty Road between 7 and 8 Mile and in Kellogg Park in downtown Plymouth. We are grass roots. We are everyday Americans who simply want the politicians to STOP the spending, cut taxes, follow the Constitution, and get government out of our way as we seek life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

This group has adopted the historic Gadsden flag as a symbol of what our group stands for. The words “DONT TREAD ON ME” effectively convey how we feel as freedom loving Americans. The rattlesnake is like the American taxpayer. According to Benjamin Franklin, both give generous warning before they strike. We truly believe that “OUR VENOM IS OUR VOTE.”

THE GADSDEN FLAG

Why the Gadsden Flag?

In December 1775, Benjamin Franklin published an essay in the Pennsylvania Journal under the pseudonym American Guesser in which he suggested that the rattlesnake was a good symbol for the American spirit:

"I recollected that her eye excelled in brightness, that of any other animal, and that she has no eye-lids—She may therefore be esteemed an emblem of vigilance.—She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders: She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage.—As if anxious to prevent all pretentions of quarrelling with her, the weapons with which nature has furnished her, she conceals in the roof of her mouth, so that, to those who are unacquainted with her, she appears to be a most defenceless animal; and even when those weapons are shewn and extended for her defence, they appear weak and contemptible; but their wounds however small, are decisive and fatal:—Conscious of this, she never wounds till she has generously given notice, even to her enemy, and cautioned him against the danger of treading on her.—Was I wrong, Sir, in thinking this a strong picture of the temper and conduct of America?"

WHAT WE BELIEVE

We truly believe that “OUR VENOM IS OUR VOTE.”

The time has come for people like us to take a stand against politicians who would seek to increase their power, restrict individual liberty, and spend money that does not exist. The powers of the federal government and its influence in our lives should be limited. Politicians need to remember that they work for us, we do not work for them. As Thomas Jefferson said, "The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself or be ruled by a small elite."

The members of this group know that the United States of America has formed the best government that history has known. The Constitution of the United States of America and the Bill of Rights has given the citizens of this country unprecedented freedom. Freedom is sustained when everyone is responsible for their own decisions and/or actions and in doing so must also accept responsibility for the consequences thereof, including those in political office.

I'm #CONSERVATIVE (1st/foremost) #Republican (2nd) - stand by any #POTUS when deserving and criticize when I feel necessary!

I am neither a Blind #TrumpCult member NOR one on the other extremists and/that suffering #TrumpDerrangementSyndrome (so, yes, if you are referring to #TDS folks as the #TrumpHaters, ok I’ll agree with you)….

#PrinciplesNotPersonalities…. Just as I have done with EVERY POTUS in my Lifetime… Supported and criticized at various time Reagan, HWBush, GWBush, and now Trump (certainly far less Support (very little actually) and more Criticism for Carter, Clinton, Obama)….

If you…

#Michigan: #Prop1: Pot legalization - How many are conflicted between YES or NO Vote - cuz its complicated!

My long and complicated stance on Prop-1. They had a great discussion this am on ART on WAAM Talk 1600 Radio and I found grounds of agreement with People on both sides of the issue. The WAAM interaction pretty much also sums up the many conversations I've had with others on this topic also and therefore, IMO, worth recapping/sharing.....

Janice Daniels raised the very correct point/issue of Personal Freedoms, Constitutional authorities, and PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY. I agree with Janice…

New US/Mexico Trade Deal. Better than NAFTA or just lipstick on a Pig??

Trump announces NEW TRADE DEAL with Mexico…. Before you start jumping up and down and shouting RAH, RAH, RAH… #AmericaFirst…. #WINNING!!! How about we wait and see the damn details and see if it is a real improvement over NAFTA (or just usual Political Theater and rearranging the Chairs on the Deck of the Titantic)?!?!?



#DevilIsInTheDetails…. The “‘American’ content” clause change in the upcoming agreement with US/Mexico DOES NOT mean any more Manufacturing in the USA. ‘Mexican…
