On the Right Side: Attend Tea Parties to find truth

(Continued)

Let them spew on. All we conservative Americans have to do is move forward with purpose and determination and we will take this country back in November. We have to make these radical liberals powerless and insignificant for the sake of our country's future.

There are 218 days to go. Stay strong, stay focused, stay united and this November the Democrat Party will go down in history as a past embarrassment of this country. After seeing the agenda it has planned and the harm it has caused this country, it can never be allowed to lead again.

Tea Party events that I know about:

· Saturday, April 24, from 1 to 4 p.m. at River Valley Ford, which is about halfway between Oneonta and Otego on Route 7.

· Saturday, July 3, beginning at 10 a.m. in Sidney and going on all day. I'll give directions at a later date.

I know there is an active group in Norwich, and if a verifiable member will send me a schedule of its future events I will be happy to post the information here.

  • Schreibman tops Chris Gibson on women's issues

    As the time to vote draws near, we need to remember how money can run politics more than we can. Raising funds is a prominent (if not the dominant) task of getting elected. Raising issues is also crucial, but those efforts are subject to distortion and fear-mongering.

  • Romney focuses on self; Obama emphasizes unity

    Mitt Romney criticizes President Obama for saying a person's success is rooted in his community, and is not all his alone. Romney belittles this with his belief in individual initiative. He is better at the put-down than the push-up.

  • Romney shows little regard for common man

    The Republicans in Congress have voted over and over, 33 times, redundantly and uselessly, to rescind what they call Obamacare.

  • Scouts' gay ban creates problem where none exists

    The Boy Scouts of America's "emphatic reaffirmation" of its vow to exclude any and all homosexuals from its hallowed ranks is ill-considered and pathetic, especially in view of its having reviewed the matter for two years.
