CAROLYN MCLARTY ANNOUNCES RUN FOR STATE SENATE DISTRICT 27

“It’s time to stop talking and start DOING! It is time to put the principles of good government to work. I am prepared to do this; I have the knowledge, experience and the proven conservative track record needed to be an effective State Senator. I am reliable and I am passionate about what is best for the people of District 27. With the current budget crisis in our state and multiple challenges in the economy, education, and health care, we need assertive and faithful leadership to bring opportunities for stability and prosperity back to Oklahoma,” McLarty said.

Dr. Carolyn McLarty is a retired veterinarian, who operated the Animal Care Clinic in Woodward for 20 years. Since 2008 she has served as the Republican National Committeewoman for Oklahoma. In this position, she has represented our state’s conservative values consistently. She has demonstrated her ability to effectively lead while serving on the RNC Executive Committee and as Chairman of the Resolutions Committee.

She believes that upholding conservative principles is vital for our leaders. “Leading based upon our moral compass and guiding faith can thwart pressure from outside influences. When we make decisions based upon our faith and values, we can build a safer more prosperous state for our children; a state where they can thrive and raise their own families with a higher quality of life,” McLarty said.

A strong proponent for education, and the quality of education our children receive, McLarty fought to encourage development of excellent new standards for Oklahoma education to replace Common Core. “It is vital that we provide our children the best education that we can. Education for good citizenship is imperative for a government “by the people.” Further, quality education ensures that our children can aspire to higher goals, and enrich the State with their talents,” McLarty said.

“Through my experience in the Republican National Committee, I have worked hard to create win-win outcomes between the establishment and the grassroots. I can work in the State Senate to pass legislation that ensures that our state government serves the people of the entire Senate District 27 from Northwestern Oklahoma to the end of the Panhandle. I will fight hard to encourage legislation that enables our conservative principles and values to bring security, liberty, and prosperity to the District. As a sovereign state, we must push back the encroachment of the Federal Government into state government functions,” McLarty emphasized.

Carolyn McLarty has been married to Tom for 42 years. Together they have three children and three grandchildren. She served on the Board of Directors at the Pregnancy Center in Woodward for nine years. She also served as President of the Northwest Oklahoma Veterinary Medical Association, was Chairman of the Board of the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority Board, Board Member of Eagle Forum, a national conservative pro-life organization and was a delegate/alternate to the Republican National Conventions for the past five Presidential elections.

NW OK Deserves Better-Learn From History

By Kenny Bob Tapp

Most politicians in Oklahoma talk the Conservative talk, God, Jesus, Family, Guns, while exhibiting the complete opposite with their voting record. All of the recent Oklahoma elected public servants who left office in a sexual scandal faced their first moral failure by violating the oath of office they swore before God and man. This is done by voting for more intrusive (BIG) government, and voting to steal your hard earned dollars in the name of taxes and fees to appease their Tall Building Crowd buddies.
I trust Northwest Oklahoma will not elect a new Senator who, as State Representative, exhibited a morally bankrupt character in violating his oath to God and man, violating the U.S. and Oklahoma Constitutions, stealing your hard earned money, and voting for more intrusive (BIG) government in our lives.
Northwest Oklahoma, we deserve better! If we fail to learn from history then we shall surely repeat it.

Let Not Their Sacrifice Be In Vain

There is no greater love than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13

Remembering those who gave all, that we might be free.
Let not the ultimate sacrifices of these brave men and women be in vain. Stand up and be counted. The inalienable rights that our loving Creator has bequeathed our Republic are almost lost. Pray and get involved.IMG_1193.JPG

Brogdon Condemns Unconstitutional OK Legislature Revenue Votes

By Randy Brogdon

IMG_1181Apparently almost everyone except the politicians (republicans) in OKC understand that revenue cannot be raised in the last 5 days of session. Article 5 Sec 33 is written in eighth grade English and clearly exempts all revenue raising measures. Changing the word “tax” to “fee” doesn’t change the meaning of the law. One would assume that those casting unconstitutional votes this week either didn’t understand the eighth grade language or they choose to ignore it. Either way they need to be promoted to citizenship back in their district and replaced with someone who cares about the rule of law. The republicans involved in this bate and switch game need to be replaced in 2018.

Lawless House Committee Passes Revenue In Spite of Constitution

Tonight with less than five days of the Oklahoma Legislative Session to go, the Joint Committee on Appropriations and Budget passed HB 2433 which raises the tax on new and used purchased vehicles to 1.25%. The committee also passed SB 845 which raises the tax on cigarettes by $1.50 a pack. HB2433 and SB 845 are now headed to the House Floor and could possibly be voted on tomorrow.

According to the Oklahoma Constitution there is one huge problem. Section 33 B. states: “No revenue bill shall be passed during the five last days of the session.”

Sadly we have a legislature so obsessed with digging into Oklahoman’s pockets that they will stop at nothing, not even the law of the land.

Stop The Semantics Game and Cut Spending

With a few days to go until the 2017 Oklahoma Legislature adjourns and a $878 million dollar budget shortfall looming over Oklahoma, we have heard every thing from increasing taxes on oil production to fuel and cigarettes.  There has been very little discussion from capitol leadership and the media on cutting waste and then only using our dollars for core functions of government.

One example of how seriously our legislature is taking the budget crisis: Last night the House Joint Committee On Appropriations & Budget rejected legislation by Representative George Faught which would cut $30 million dollars of waste that the state spends on swag (pins, pens, stickers, calendars, etc.). http://webserver1.lsb.state.ok.us/cf/2017-18%20SUPPORT%20DOCUMENTS/votes/House/HB2405_VOTES.HTM
But apparently our “wise” public servants are obsessed with milking you the Taxpayer for more dollars to quench their thirst for bloated government instead of getting to work on much needed cuts.

Now the legislature is working on a plan to change the $1.50 cigarette tax proposal to a “fee” to avoid the Constitutional requirement of needing a 3/4 vote of the legislature to pass a tax. This plan also hosts a 1.25 percent levy on the sale of new and used vehicles.
House Leadership claims the new vehicle levy doesn’t violate the 3/4 vote Constitutional requirement because the levy removes an exemption.

The Tax, Tax, Tax Crowd on Lincoln Boulevard may think they are almost home free on raiding your pockets again or are they? It appears a wrench may have been thrown into their plans. https://www.sos.ok.gov/documents/questions/640.pdf

A State Constitutional requirement passed in the early nineties with the 3/4 legislative votes requirement for raising taxes as well with a provision which prohibits the legislature from passing REVENUE increase measures within 5 days of the legislature adjourning.  Taxes as well as fees are all viewed as revenue by the State of Oklahoma, so we shall see if the powers that be on Lincoln Boulevard have any more tricks in their bag of tricks.  Stop the semantics game and cut spending!

We Are Seriously Not Having the Right Conversation! — It is the Spending Stupid!


By Sandra Crosnoe via Finding Gems & Sharing Them

Color me livid.  We have lost before we even get started if we don’t correct this matter.  

Let me see if I can show you  how this game actually works.

Case 1:  I say lets cut taxes 20%  and you come back with how about 10% and we settle on 15%.  You think you won because we cut taxes a little.  Spending wasn’t reduced one iota in this scenario!  The revenue will have to be raised somehow by this generation or the next.

Amount saved 0%

Case 2:  What if the opening gambit had been let’s cut spending 20% and you come back with how about 10% and we settle on 15%.  In this scenario we both won and spending was actually reduced a little right here and now.

Amount saved 15%

Do you see the difference?  Please think about it.  Shift the conversation.  Talking about taxes is a trap and you loose no matter what the compromise position is.  Here’s a sample letter if it helps you get started:

Dear Representative,

I don’t want to hear another word about taxes.

Not one single solitary word.

Don’t even think about raising them – not on me and not on my neighbors either!

Don’t come to any of us asking for more money.  We are united on this matter.

You already have plenty.

You simply have not learned to prioritize correctly.

It is really pretty easy.

Do not spend more money than you have.  Do not ask me for more.

Let’s see how much government we can cut before anyone (not on the payroll actually misses any of it).

Thank you for getting our spending priorities in order and balancing our budget.  It is after all what we elected you to do.

Sincerely,

A Taxpayer

Oklahomans Must Take Back Narrative

We must redefine the narrative which has been hijacked by the media and progressives in OKC. They have coined the discussion.

On one hand you have the attack on this state’s bread basket (the oil industry) and on the other hand you have the attack on the average citizen’s pockets and household budget.

Both spawn the same results of more control, enslavement, and repeating the cycle, year after year, of bad budgeting and the shake down on Oklahomans continuing.

Oklahomans must find a way to knock that coin off the table and regain the narrative. STOP THE FRIVOLOUS SPENDING and return to Fiscal Conservatism.IMG_1168

Jason Timm Shares Dave Ramsey Wisdom On Handling State Budget Woes

By Jason Timm

Dave Ramsey tells families in debt to start selling off their non essential stuff. Have a garage sale. He says to sell so much stuff you have the kids worried they are next.

It works the same with government. The legislature should be dumping expenses and selling property. They should be doing this so fast and so extreme that Mary Fallin and Leslie Osborne are worried their desk, chair, and state salaries are next to go.
