This September 11th, we will each have an opportunity to say thank you to soldiers who have paid dearly to protect the freedoms our families enjoy. The Central Minnesota Tea Party will proudly host a very important fundraising event for the Building Homes for Heroes organization. The event will run from 3:00 to 6:00 pm at the St. Cloud Holiday Inn.
Tickets may be purchased at $50 for an individual or $75 for a couple online at this link, or by calling (320) 281-4523.
The evening will include wine tasting and hors d’oeuvres, accompanied by motivational speakers from the Building Homes for Heroes organization as well as a great lineup of local speakers, including King Banaian, Steve Gottwalt, Dan Severson and others. Your support will assist the organization’s effort to build homes for four severely-wounded American veterans in 2011. Continue Reading Building Homes for Heroes…

The moment we decided hospitals must treat all comers was the moment Obamacare became inevitable. So we have learned from last week’s news out of the U. S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit in Atlanta.
[That] court struck down a central provision of [Obamacare], ruling that Congress overstepped its authority by requiring virtually all Americans to obtain health insurance.
It is instructive to consider the losing argument, because it demonstrates succinctly why conservatives must not compromise limited government principles. Doing so opens government’s throttle and invites an evermore intrusive state. Continue Reading Obamacare on Trial: Big Government Leads to Bigger Government…

There’s an early episode of The Simpsons where Homer, vexed by a flashing “check engine” light on his vehicle dashboard, “fixes” the problem by laying a strip of electrical tape over the light. To his mind, if there’s no warning, there’s no problem.
The same mentality is on display by President Barack Obama, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, and leftist commentators in the press and blogosphere. Labeling the recent S&P reduction in the federal government’s credit rating “the Tea Party downgrade,” big spenders everywhere are blaming America’s stuttering economic engine on those citizens raising alarm.
The argument is comical. Tea Party supportive Congressional Republicans objected to putting trillions more on the nation’s credit card. The Left argues such calls for fiscal discipline somehow caused the credit rating downgrade – not decades of unrestrained spending with no plan to close the deficit or pay down the debt. They speak as if reductions in spending weren’t even an option, as if the only choice before Washington were to keep borrowing or default.
Monday, President Obama declared, “We always have been and always will be a triple A country” in spite of our credit rating. This is indicative of the same fraudulent “everyone gets a trophy” worldview which has informed the Left’s policy prescriptions for decades and brought us to where we’re at. Never mind that man behind the curtain. The clothes are visible to all but the impure.

Tea Party coordinators Walter Hudson and Cindy Pugh will guest host The Sue Jeffers Show on NewsTalk 100.3 this Saturday from 4 – 7 PM. Hudson is the current chair of North Star Tea Party Patriots, a coalition of Tea Party groups in Minnesota. Pugh is co-founder of that coalition and one of its largest constituent groups – the SW Metro Tea Party in Chanhassen.

- Why the Tea Party is fundamentally incapable of “taking hostages”
- Why the Left has always taken hostages and fundamentally must
- Answering the claim that the Tea Party caused this week’s market crash
- Examples of government excluding constituents from policymaking
- How conservative voters should react to disappointing deals and compromises
- The critical WI recall elections
