The Democratic Party has morphed into the Communist Party/Socialist Party

The Democratic Party has morphed into the Communist Party/Socialist Party. When I was young, the Communist Party and/or the Socialist Party usually had a candidate for President every four years. The last time that happened was 1984. Beginning in 1988, the Communist Party has supported every single person running for President representing the Democratic Party. Why do you think that is? Notice the rhetoric of making "the world a better place", as opposed to making the United …

The Democratic Party has enslaved African Americans

"A GOVERNMENT CAUSED CRISIS"

Sheriff David Clark explains how and why the Democratic Party has enslaved African Americans:

“Several decades; three, four five decades of progressively Democrat rule that has created the expansion of the welfare class, the expansion of the state of dependency.  WE lead in these economic indicators; we lead in poverty rates; six poorest city in America; school failure Milwaukee Public Schools K-12 one of…

We need Jeff Noble for State Representative!

 

The majority of Michiganders are angry and confused as to why Michigan has increased taxes, grown government and expanded Obamacare (Medicaid).    A study just published this week, ranks Michigan as the seventh worst taxed state, by total dollars, right behind…

The Root Cause of the Flint Water Crisis

As I look at the whole Flint Water Crisis, I am struck by the disingenuous accusations that are flying. One side would have us believe that this is all Governor Snyder’s fault. The other side points to a Mayor of Flint and his staff that no longer are in office. There is no simple easy villain in all of this. It is in fact quite complicated.

This crisis began because the city of Flint was attempting to save money from the over-charging of another municipality, the city of Detroit. Flint…

Imagine

Imagine

How would you like to own a business where your raw materials are free, your gross sales exceed one third of a billion dollars per year and you have so much money flowing in that you are able to perform “special favors” for your friends by the awarding of lucrative contracts?  Imagine that you sell this product to everyone in your city and jack up the rates and sell this “essential to life” product to everyone in neighboring towns at a greatly elevated rate.…

Unfair Water Rates in Southeast Michigan

Fellow Neighbors,                 



I have been researching a problem that is a significant

problem to most of Southeast Michigan. The water rate structure as

determined by the Detroit Water and Sewer Department is unfair. The

communities in Western Wayne and Oakland Counties are paying more than

their fair share and, as such, are "carrying the load". These costs

are transferred to you and me by our suburban communities. The solution

is to demand that all… Continue

"Give me Liberty or give me death"

Hear the words of one of our greatest founding fathers, Patrick Henry.  Listen to the warnings that preceded the famous words "Give me Liberty or give me death".  Are the ominous signs of the coming attempt to subjugate the colonists that much different than the signs that we see of the coming, indeed sometimes  present , subjugation?  Isn't Obamacare all about control?  Are not the gun grabbers real intent to prevent us from preventing tyranny?  Is not the real purpose of the FCC's…

Burn the Congress Down!

Burn the Congress Down!

Regarding last week's Illegal Immigration Funding of DHS  - “Well where’s [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell? Where are our senator friends?” Gosar asked. “I mean, they took a bail on this one as well.”  

-  As dissappointed I am with my Congressman and Boehner,  I must admit the real villain is the Senate Majority Leader Mitch  McConnell.  In December the Republicans scheduled a "Gunfight at the OK Corral for February".    They scheduled…

Letter to the Editor - Plymouth-Canton Observer

Mr. James Huddleston,



I am responding to a letter (reference Jan 27 th Plymouth-Canton Letters to the Editor) that you wrote attempting to defame Senator Patrick Colbeck. You attempt to infer that the increased state revenue of 1.2 billion
 was gained at the expense of the poor and the middle-class. Nothing could be more untrue. The increased revenue was…

"that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth"

"that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth"

One hundred fifty years ago, today, the above words were spoken by Abraham Lincoln in  the Gettysburg Address (see below).  It seems to me that we are currently in a struggle no less critical than the struggle of the Civil War.  The very essence of our Republic, a government of, by and for the…

Can Wes Nakagiri help fix the Michigan Republican Party?

Wes Nakagiri is running for the office of Lieutenant Governor. Last night I had the pleasure of speaking to Wes before the Rattle With Us Tea Party and listening to him speak to the mostly packed room at the Plymouth Cultural Center.  I was impressed with both his background (GMI – Mechanical Engineer, management of Engineering in a fortune 200 automotive supplier) and his stated beliefs.  Wes supports the Republican platform, principles of the Republican Party and the values of True…

Regarding Calley and other so called Republicans that voted in favor of Medicaid Expansion:

Regarding Calley and other so called Republicans that voted in favor of Medicaid Expansion:

I have voted straight party Republican my entire life with perhaps one exception. (I am 63). In the last several years I have noticed that the Republican Party has drifted ( to a significant degree) from it's founding principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, respect for the constitution and belief in being self reliant. I am glad to see the surge of "We The People" in groups such…

A "Shot Across the Bow" concerning Medicaid Expansion in Michigan

“A Shot Across the Bow”

 

My fellow Republicans and Precinct Delegates,

 

On Friday, August 23, 2013, the Michigan Mackinac Center for Public Policy and Ohio’s Buckeye Institute for Public Policy issued a “Shot Across the Bow” for any Michigan Law Maker that would consider voting for Medicaid Expansion.  The study being released states:

"It is unrealistic to assume that the Obama administration will weaken the Medicaid requirements…

A less expensive way to work with Obamacare

I am encouraged that Senator Patrick Colbeck has found a less expensive way to work with Obamacare.  He has authored two bills in this pursuit.  SB 459 provides the regulatory infrastructure that would enable a low cost, high quality care, free market environment within the confines of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The second bill, which will be introduced shortly, would convert current Medicaid enrollees to low cost, high quality Qualified Health Plans featuring Direct…
