who would fight to keep ndaa

who would fight to keep ndaa and why ?

Scared sheep

who think that as long as they don't do anything wrong it could never affect them.

The amendment to repeal NDAA

The amendment to repeal NDAA failed.

so sad....

they don't know...they are being used.

Former CIA boss George HW Bush while Vice President started this organization. I believe this relates to his famous NEW WORLD ORDER speech.

Many people are wondering how influential the International Democrat Union is for the Republican Platform this year - or previous years.

OK I watched the whole thing and it made me kind of sad

for instance: E-Verify don't these people know that by supporting the verbiage they just used that 1) E-Verify is Trademaked / Brandname and if the process should change in the future that could be a problem - they should have just used more generic terms for this and 2) the the GOP just endorsed Microsoft and Oracle Databases for a GINORMOUS Big Brother Database. I appreciated the small business owner who stood up questioning why she should be in charge of doing this when the government doesn't do it before the IRS hands out fraudulent tax returns. Of course Romney Lawyers chuckled at this and explained how easy it was to use.

OK letting that slide

What about the sex eduction in public schools discussion? See this is one of the reasons why I homeschool in the first place...so right there I was kind of astounded that the republican platform was talking about sex-ed.

The poor Raw Milk farmer guy. When he spoke the Romney lawyers laughed at him and then proceeded to defend the FDA. And when someone got up to defend RawMilk guy it was all POINT OF ORDER!!!

You always knew the Romney guys because they addressed the room as if making a proclamation and often slipped in, "When President Romney..."

I really don't like lawyers.

Maybe we should fornicate like pigs in a barnyard

They put sex-ed in when I was going to school, and I self-opted out. Didn't need to ask anyone, just told them no.

As point of order, my high school senior class ended up screwing each other (only 17 in class) in one big orgy, with the "chaperones" ignoring and encouraging. Since this was a small town, and many of these people ended up marrying other people who fornicated with each other or their sisters, this was well known by the whole town.

I remember not going on that trip because of some spite about me getting through high school in 3 years instead of 4 and not being eligible, and likewise, some of the same type of thing towards me and another student for being brighter.

Yet, I made it through high school without being a disgrace, and I'm old enough to know exactly what the propaganda on tv and in the classrooms is intended to do - to lose all honor and esteem for self and community. The society is being programmed and encourage to do these things - fastest way to break a society they suppose.

The school system is rotten to the core.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Did they adopt my resolution to end ALL foreign aid?

I tried to get this on both the King County and Washington State Republican Party Platforms here but to no avail.

It was partially my fault as I messed up the procedure for submitting it

Nevertheless - here is my suggestion for an amendment to the national platform:
A RESOLUTION concerning U.S. federal foreign aid (financial or otherwise) from the citizens of the United States of America:


Whereas there is no authorization in the United States Constitution to redistribute wealth from American citizens (by taxation) to any foreign nation;

And whereas we believe in the idea of charity, given voluntarily and individually, but not through government force;

And whereas the idea of taxing any American citizen (many of who may be struggling financially themselves), and re-distributing the fruits of their labor to any foreign nation is immoral;

And whereas if even one American veteran is homeless or in financial need after once offering their lives and limbs in defense of America;

We therefore resolve to reject the notion of giving any aid (financial or otherwise), by the United States government to any foreign nation for any reason.

In addition, we demand that any presently elected official or any person campaigning for an elected office sign a pledge to support and adhere to the above resolution which follows closely the principles of liberty as put forth in the American Constitution and various other founding documents.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Well stated.

I will try to get that on the Yakima County next year. Maybe when can get a county consensus here in WA.

Galatians 5:1
It is for FREEDOM that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

Well, there you are

Obviously, God wants Dr. Paul to be the president. :-)

Freedom is my Worship Word!



how do they decide

which delegates can be in this committee

See my comment below...

or did you mean who can sit-in and watch this meeting? If you want to know who has the authority to witness this meeting, then refer to this post I made. The committee members were given guest passes to invite their constituent delegates to witness the proceedings.

loll not really

but they did contend it a bit

stupid committee, why would

stupid committee, why would they oppose the raw milk amendment?

You heard the man...

The FDA is all knowing when it comes to what is best to put into your body. Just look at the frozen food section of Wall-Mart. They "blessed" anything in a bag and in a box and frozen for goodness sake.

It is so sad that the FDA couldn't just go away, they are there to promote the supplier and do not have the well being of the consumer in mind.

I have often wondered if an FDA official stood in front of a cow with teats so swollen they could milk themselves... would he know what to do?

Because a majority says they

Because a majority says they love small government with their mouths but vote big government with their grubby little hands.

it also outed all the Ron Paul supporters

hope everyone got a good look.
The whole thing made me really REALLY sad.

Monsanto & Big Pharma

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!
