Campaign For Liberty West Plains Meeting

Posted: May 16, 2016 in Uncategorized
You are invited to meet with the Howell County Campaign for Liberty Group Thursday, May 19. At 6:00p Dr. Hal Brown, candidate for the eighth district US representative seat, will speak. (NOTE THE TIME CHANGE!) There will be time for questions and answers.  We meet at Chen’s Garden, 1705 Gibson, in West Plains. 
This month’s agenda:
·         6:00 – Dr. Hal Brown, candidate for the eighth district US representative seat, will speak.
·         7:00 – report on items of interest around the state followed by a general discussion
Dr. Brown has a second engagement this evening, so his time with us will be cut a little short. The good news is that he does get to spend some time with us. Here is some information from his website: HalBrownforCongress.com.
Dr. Hal Brown has practiced medicine in Cape Girardeau, MO for more than 30 years. He knows us and we know him. We have literally entrusted our lives to his care. He has helped us heal physically, financially and emotionally. Now Hal feels called to carry those healing priorities to a very sick Washington, D.C. He believes Missouri’s voice has faded to fly-over status as the so-called East and West coast elites further consolidate America’s wealth into fewer and fewer hands. At the same time, the national debt skyrockets and taxes become all-consuming to pay for increasingly reckless conduct. These observations have motivated Hal’s readiness to represent Missouri’s 8th District and work for real, positive change to ensure a sound future for our children and grandchildren.

KEY CAMPAIGN ISSUES & PRIORITIES

  1. We must balance the budget. National debt will leave an oppressive legacy to our children and grandchildren.
  2. Spending beyond our means, fueled by wanton borrowing, poses a severe threat to our nation’s well being. We must become faithful stewards of our Nation’s blessings.
  3. Fair Tax reform should replace the current federal income tax system that has become bloated, corrupt and unmanageable.
  4. Reduce federal government cost. Relocate federal agencies in less expensive cities around the country, thus also boosting those local economies.
You can find out more about Dr. Brown and his positions at his website.
Important dates this election year:
Date
Event
Location
May 20-21
State Convention
Branson, MO
July 18-21
National Convention
Cleveland, OH
Unfortunately, our Missouri state committee kept most of the delegates on the slate that will be voted on at the state convention. In determining how the delegates would vote on the first round at the national convention the candidates were awarded five votes for each district they won. That means 40 of the 52 first ballot votes were determined by the outcomes in the districts, however, there are allowing only three persons to be selected from each district to attend the national convention. 8×3 is 24 with the remaining 28 delegates being on the slate that will be voted on at the state convention. The state committee usually has enough control to be certain that their slate will win at the state convention. Again, it doesn’t really matter if someone wins on the first ballot.
The following offices are up for election this year and will appear on the August primary ballot:
Statewide: United States Sen., Gov., Lt. Gov., Secretary of State, state treasurer, Atty. Gen. and our representative to the U.S. Congress.
Howell County: assessor, Northern and Southern County commissioners, Sheriff, public administrator, coroner and surveyor and our State Sen. and our state representative. And, of course, all the committeemen and committeewomen for each Township.
Our state Sen., Mike Cunningham, is running unopposed in the primary and the general election. Our state representative, Shawn Rhoads, is unopposed in the primary, but is being challenged by Terry Hampton in the general election. I’ll wait until after the August primary to schedule them to speak at one of our meetings.
Both the northern Commissioner, Bill Lovelace, and southern Commissioner, Billy Sexton, have opponents in the August primary. I intend to schedule, at different meetings, the current officeholders and all their opponents before the August primary. The other County incumbents are running unopposed.
The committeeman position for Howell and Sisson townships are also being contested.
Most, if not all, of the state offices are being contested in the primary. I hesitate to ask anyone to travel the distance to West Plains to speak to a small audience. However, if the opportunity arises to cooperate with other groups in getting a candidate to this area, I’m open to that. And if I hear of any candidate being in the area to speak anywhere, I’ll let you know.
Several of the statewide candidates did speak at the West Plains Lincoln Day. I collected some campaign information from the candidates at that meeting. It will be available at our meetings until the primary or I run out of material.
We will have reports to bring us up to date in the following areas:
–         New ONSR plan
–    The Missouri state legislature is currently in session. Any comments?
–         COS update
–         Mike Slack –  DNR Land Purchase in Oregon County & Miscellaneous
–         Discussion of the caucuses/convention
–         Other –
I have copies of the General Assembly Roster 2015 which has contact information for our state and federal elected officials. Copies will be available at this meeting.  Copies of the US and MO constitutions and  Howell County Campaign for Liberty Group business cards will be available as well.  Copies of the 5000 year leap and Agenda 21 material will also be available as will “The Victory for State Sovereignty”, Mack/Prinz vs. USA by Sheriff Richard Mack. There are also newsletters from various organizations available.
The 2015-2016 Missouri Roster is here. It has contact info for county officials around the state as well as other information.  I’ll have copies at the meeting.
The books, “The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrates” are in. I will have them at the meeting. The cost is $6.75 each.

Comments
  1. I am tempted to come, but then again I am afraid of what I would say would not be received well.

    I find that despite good intentions, that 99.9% of people running for public office really do not have a clue as to what is going on in this country, nor do they understand Liberty.

    None of them seem to have read nor understand the Constitution. I was appalled by some of the statements made by a politician at the last meeting that I attended.
