Let your elected representative know that the people of Oklahoma have, and will continue to reject the President’s Health Care Reform Law and that we appreciate their willingness to stand in the gap for Oklahoma citizens in the face of the Supreme Courts ruling to uphold the misguided health care reform policy.
Invite them to attend the Rally for Health Care Independence on Saturday July 7, 2012 and stand with us!

Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?’
‘That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,’ said the Cat.
What a disappointing Primary for those who are fed up with politics as usual!
There were some wins, in fact, but I want to speak to the looming issue of “losses”
So, which way ought we go from here? As the Cat explains to Alice, that all depends on where it is you want to get to.
Since I became actively involved in politics, I have seen a new awakening among the previously apathetic. In fact, I am one of those previously apathetic. I voted alright. I was told and believed it to be my duty. I was taught that it is most unforgivable to shirk a duty.
So I registered (Republican, of course) when I came of age and tried to choose the more honest of the candidates presented me and called it good. What spurred me to become active was the sense that the government had become unbearably intrusive, the realization that my generation may be the one to see the end of the great experiment that is the USA. To see this possibility and yet do nothing is not an option. In a more practical sense, politics for me is a matter of pure self-defense.
I consider myself lucky to have found myself in good company, there are many before us who cannot say that. A growing number of Americans are pushing back and as our government continues to fatten and intrude upon the many who simply wish to be left alone, we can expect this number to grow.
It is hard for us of like mind to understand why so many do not see the wrecking ball headed in our direction. We see it so clearly. If you are nodding your head right now, you may count yourself as one of the proverbial canaries in the coal mine. You are exquisitely sensitive to the signals that portend the loss of individual liberty, you bristle to witness that mere men now presume to usurp what is granted us by our Creator. This is the concept that sets America apart. We know that if we lose that distinction, we lose all. We should understand that we are a part of the first wave in a struggle that will take no less than a generation to see results. This is a distinctly unsatisfying position for those who have already lost all patience. I believe that when the turning point comes (if there ever is a clearly defined point of turning at all) most of us will not be here to celebrate.
The victory is in the struggle, the journey is the destination and we are laying the foundation.
Let’s not be so distracted by the need for evidence that we are right or “winning” that we forget why we are here. Accept no compromise or political expediency and expect no accolades for your labors in this lifetime.
So, where ought we go from here? Why, straight ahead of course.
Next-What we won….

Although the media seems to have overlooked what would have to be a news worthy event, I am happy to report that Sen. Brogdon won the GOP straw poll! 54 to 42 %.

Lets give this Liberty Candidate a push! http://www.rjharris2010.com/donate.asp
I hope that Oklahoma will recognize the strength of character that RJ Harris has and put their votes to good use in the upcoming primary.
Fascinating feature at Follow the Money, a site devoted to tracking money in state politics. This shows a graph charting donations by industry, individuals and groups, the amounts and places House and Senate candidates on either a winner or loser side. When you roll your cursor over the points it pops up with the breakdown on each candidate’s donations.
