The Huntington Tea Party Candidate Forum was a bridge too far for us so no official blog post coverage. All five U.S. Senatorial Candidates were there answering questions and visiting with voters. We need to find the best candidate and show Washington who's in charge! We The People!!!
Fair warning...I believe that Marlin Stutzman is the best candidate at this time and that is my opinion and is not an official opinion of the Republican Party. I do know that Marlin Stutzman won the straw poll after the debate. Stay tuned for a report from an attendee coming soon!
This Sunday in Cedar Lake, remember?
Remember that the first Monday of every month is the meeting for the Cedar Lake/Hanover Republicans.

The evening will begin at 5:00 Pm with a Pizza and Pop Buffet. A $10.00 charge, tax and tip included, will include unlimited soft drinks, coffee and tea as well as the Pizza Buffet. Several special prices for cocktails will be offered as well.
The forum will begin immediately following the buffet. A standing room only crowd is expected. Plan to arrive early to ensure your seat.
During the Freedom Candidate Forum, each candidate will be asked to make an opening comment. Then, the moderator will open up questioning to the audience members. The candidates have been fore-warned to be prepared to answer intelligent difficult questions about their positions. The patriots that attend the Liberty Straight Up events are a well informed group of politically savvy local activists.
The following candidates have accepted their invitation to take part in the forum:
Don BATES Jr., Richard BEHNEY, Rebecca SINK-BURRIS, Mark LEYVA, Eric OLSON, Rob PASTORE,
Mike WHERRY, Shawn OLSON, Bill JOHNSON, Todd REINERT.
Many candidates in state level races have also accepted.
Each month, Liberty Straight Up invites you to join us for a splendid mix of grass roots activism, libations, and good conversation. We are a group of citizens who endeavor to limit the reach of government into our personal lives, to ensure life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
We are a non-partisan, social organization that seeks to unite liberty-minded individuals not only with one another, but also with freedom-based organizations within their local communities.
Please share this information with your Facebook and MySpace pages as well as your friends and family members. All are welcome.

Why do I keep talking about the Tea Party Patriot movement on this blog? Because these are the people who have realized that their country is broken and therefore it is time for them to get up and get out and be part of the solution. They want the Republican Party to be a party of Constitutional Conservatives and not a bunch of Beltway Boys. If we are true to our principles they will join with us.
Ronald Reagan would, were he alive and well today, be very likely on tour with the Tea Party Express. My fellow Republicans, open your eyes and ears! Tea Party Patriots want the same things Republicans used to stand for, before we fell for the lure of centrist moderate go along to get along mediocre muddle instead of fundamental conservative principles that Ronnie stood for and by which this country was formed and by which we grew and prospered!
I will be posting a few bios on some of the candidates running locally if said candidates send me some good information. Informed voters make better choices!
My fellow Republicans may not like this but my personal opinion is that Dan Coats has no business running for office in Indiana. I will tell you why in a subsequent post. Why did our State leadership want Dan Coats to come back from Virginia? I just don't get it! But that debate is for next time...
