Welcome to LiberTEA Racine.
I'd like to thank all of the people who helped me take an idea and turn it into something real. It is the goal of all us at LR to raise awareness to the "Disease" that is "killing" Freedom everyday in Racine, America and around the world. Our Liberty's are being attacked one by one as the government grows at all levels. I have been chomping to get this site running for weeks now. In just the past few weeks our Common Council members killed a small Liquor store and pantry from joining our community to sell legal products legally, in a building where the landlord was supportive! Our Common council knows better? A vacant building is a better deal for the city? Today the State of Wisconsin passed a law crushing the Liberty of a business to decide whether it's customers should have the freedom to smoke or not smoke. President Obama fired the President of GM, and is in the process of turning the majority stock holding to the Unions that created the demise of Chrysler. Had Chrysler had the Liberty to actually make cars that their market research said the people wanted to buy, Chrysler today wouldn't be turning into a Govt. Agency! Mr. president have you ever had a job selling ANYTHING that wasn't a Govt. Agency??
These are just a few of the items that seem to come along everyday, week, or month. LR doesn't believe we can stop all of the fights against Govt. and Nanny state intervention, but we can be a forum for discussion and a group that advocates change, and then takes action at the local level to make change real!
Over the next few weeks we have in place a Website, and will use this Blogsite to welcome commentary from anyone interested in sharing their thoughts. We will also have 6 regular contributors, and we are considering offering "guest" contributors as well.
LiberTEA Racine is a group of concerned Racine area citizens dedicated to preserving and recovering our liberties from the near constant encroachment by government. We are an issue driven, active and non-partisan organization focusing on local issues that concern our liberties.
I'd also like to thank Denis and the TEA Party in Racine for the inspiration to "Do Something!"
Denis also directed me to the following quote:
"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote." -Benjamin Franklin
LR will have a group of contributors, as well as an investigative newshound or 2, looking for the News the JT and the local radio station don't cover. We will focus primarily on issues in the City, and County of Racine, with additional coverage of issues in the surrounding villages. LR knows Racine is not the Liberty haven we would like, but our surrounding neighbors are very supportive, and we ask for and will offer our help on their issues, too.
Liberty Racine is not a "Rent-a-Mob" that shows up around a statue every week shouting Jesse Jackson chants. But we do believe our voices are being ignored, and maybe it's our own fault. To change that we will have about every 2 weeks an "Action Call". No you don't have to ride on horseback thru the city at night...but instead we'll post the issue, and the appropriate contact people, (Alderman, Mayor, County Super. or County Executive, and on occasion Lehman, Turner, Mason, Vos, and even the Gov. ). It is our goal to make it so easy you can "Do Something" in five minutes..you don't even have to get out of your jammies!! A phone call or a quick e-mail. If you know a friend who would benefit from our "service" have them send LR an e-mail, and we will include it in the broadcast.
At this time this is a voluntary, unpaid, act of conscience, there is no charge to subscribe, nor any commitment to act, but you have your conscience's too;^).
This is a non-partisan group focus on winning achievable Liberty issues.
My Grand-parents gave me a free America, I owe it to my Grand-children to leave the "campsite" in better shape than I found it!! Keep America Free!
