Pearland TEA Party Says ‘YES’ to Stovall – – – ‘NO’ to Stockman!

20131215-201418.jpg

Recently a few members of the Pearland TEA Party Board had the privilege to hear Rafael Cruz speak. During that speech he highlighted that the bible actually tells man how to choose a leader based on four things; “able men, who fear God, men of truth, those who hate dishonest gain.”

For months the Board had been vetting out the entrants into the U.S. Senate race for the Great State of Texas and after the filing deadline it became glaringly clear that there was only one candidate that we in good faith could support and endorse, Dwayne Stovall. He advocates several policies that we clearly support. First and foremost he is in favor of returning to the concept of Texas First. The 17th Amendment to the Constitution in essence ended Federalism or any opportunity the States had to veto Federal authority. It changed the election of U.S. Senators to a popular vote as opposed to elected by each States legislature. He supports returning the Federal government back to a limited government and allowing the states to have more control over the Federal Government.

He also, by his very presence in the race, highlights that the Federal Government was intended to be a Citizen Legislature. It was not to be dominated by Lawyers and a Permanent political class. He has been very good at educating everyone he meets on how the Constitution was intended to operate.

Based on our questions and conversations he has met all of the qualifications laid out in the bible and more. Based on a unanimous vote the entire board enthusiastically endorses Dwayne Stovall for United States Senator.

BRAZORIA COUNTY TEA PARTIES’ PRESS RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, DECEMBER 5, 2013
Since October 23, 2012, the TEA Parties of Brazoria County have suffered repeated abuses at the hands of the County Commissioners and District Attorney Jeri Yenne.
On that date, District Attorney Yenne presented her “interpretation” of the Texas Constitution to the County Commissioners. In that presentation, Yenne proposed that the Constitution forbade the use of county facilities by any group that was not granted funds by the state.
Yenne proposed, and the Commissioners adopted, a rule that stated that the county facilities could not be used for a private purpose by any private entities or individuals. The TEA Parties of Brazoria County were contacted the same day and told that they could no longer use county facilities for their public meetings. No other group was removed from the use of county facilities under that new rule. The TEA Parties were the intended victims of the Commissioners and D.A. Yenne.
Despite having been shown that Yenne’s “analysis” of the Texas Constitution was incorrect, at best, the Commissioners refused, and continue to refuse, to get outside counsel or to seek the opinion of the Attorney General’s office as to whether what they had done was allowed by the Texas Constitution.
The TEA Parties have repeatedly requested that the Commissioners reconsider what they had done and to order the D.A. Yenne to allow the TEA Parties the use of several county facilities as they had done for years before this set of events. The Commissioners have repeatedly deferred to D.A. Yenne who, without a reason, steadfastly refuses to allow the TEA Parties the use of those facilities.
In August of 2013 the TEA Parties served a demand letter on the Commissioners once again asking them to please stop the actions instigated by the inaccurate constitutional claims of Yenne. The TEA Parties were once again ignored. The Commissioners refused to even formulate a response to the demand letter.
We, the TEA Parties of Brazoria County, have done all we can do to peacefully resolve this matter. With a deep respect for the Citizens of Brazoria County, we lay this matter before them, and ask that they hear our voice, see what has been done, and that they recognize that we have done all that we could to prevent legal action short of accepting the abuses quietly and disappearing.
We, the TEA Parties of Brazoria County, act as your watchdogs to prevent the waste of tax dollars and to prevent the continued growth of government into areas that you, the People, have not authorized in our Constitution.
We regretfully announce that we feel that there is no more that can be done outside the courts and ask for your voices to be heard in Commissioners’ Court, ground floor, 111 E. Locust, Angleton, TX, 77515, at 9:00 a.m., Tuesday, December 10, 2013, so that, perhaps, the Commissioners can be reminded that they are our servants, not our rulers.

Perhaps the Last Chance for the Republic

20131208-202504.jpg

Over the course of the last sessions of The 5000 Year Leap we never made it to Principle 19 but based on the continued course of events it is worth a review now. One of the most heavily debated topics during the founding of this Republic was just how much power to cede to the Federal Government. The Founders originally despised a central government so much that the Articles of Confederation created such a weak Federal Government that it eventually became unworkable.
We are now in the midst of what the Founders feared most of all. That eventually the power would centralize so much in Washington, D.C. that the system would begin to slide into tyranny. Each passing day brings news that this is in fact the case. Whether it is by EPA Regulations or Executive Order, the corruption and extinction of the rule of law have led the Federal Government to perform acts as bad as or worse than when the Founders wrote the Declaration of Independence against the abuses of England. There is however one last escape route to restore our Republic. A return to Principle 19 of Limiting the Federal Government through the use of the Tenth Amendment and States Rights.
The words to the Tenth Amendment are short but powerful in meaning:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
I had originally glanced passed this but with the publishing of Mark Levin’s new book The Liberty Amendments, I started looking into this more.

Washington, D.C. has proven time and again it has become the ‘fire’ that President Washington warned of. No matter what the people try to enact on Washington the forces have become so entrenched that controlling them becomes like squeezing jello. The last chance now is to try and bring the fight more local. Push the state legislatures to take back their rightful control and put the Federal government back in its box.
Texas has elected one United States Senator that now leads the nation in what a Senator should be doing for his constituents but it now has a chance to elect one that could lead us back to our rightful heritage in relation to States Rights. I have had the pleasure of listening to Dwayne Stovall ( http://www.texansforstovall.com/ ) on a couple of occasions and he offers the TEA Party the opportunity to put its actions in alignment with its convictions. Each time I hear him speak he advocates one primary thing; returning the Senate to the control of the State Legislatures. That is a key piece of the puzzle to restoring the Tenth Amendment. Imagine if to stop legislation in Washington you can contact your State Representative and State Senator to put pressure on our United States Senator to kill the bill. This is the idea behind Strong Local Self Government.
My efforts going forward will be focused on opportunities to re-establish the Sovereignty of the Great State of Texas and I encourage everyone to do their own investigation into this avenue as well. Along with that take the chance to listen to Dwayne Stovall and I think it will provide new hope back into a long and tedious battle to restore our liberties!

Pearland Journal: Tea Parties of Brazoria County unfairly treated
