The growth of the Tea Party is largely fueled by misguided leadership within the Republican and Democratic parties. Four years ago many of us were asleep when the Democrats nominated and the people elected a socialist to the White House. Then the Republicans promoted, passed and continue to defend legislation that authorizes the President to use the military to indefinitely detain US citizens that he determines are terrorists.
If you are a Tea Party regular you understand what is happening to our freedoms. Bring a friend to a meeting and help them catch up on federal, state and local politics. In the next meeting of the Kenton Tea we will discuss how to get involved in your local Republican party and return it to the party of limited government, free markets and fiscal responsibility. Democrats must also reorganize and return their party to American principals. Attend this meeting and connect with other like minded individuals. Wednesday, January 11, PeeWee's...see you there!

The Kenton Tea Party meeting on Wednesday, Dec 7 at PeeWee's Restaurant, 519 Enterprise Drive, Crescent Springs, KY. The meeting is presented to educate those wanting to learn about options to change the current tax system. The discussions about our tax system have increased since Herman Cain proposed the 9-9-9 plan. The meeting starts at 6:00PM and ends at 7:30PM. Many people arrive early, 5:30PM and order off the menu or stay after the meeting to socialize. Bios of the presenters from the Kentucky Fair Tax organization, http://fairtaxky.org/ are presented below.
What is the FairTax plan?
The FairTax plan is a comprehensive proposal that replaces all federal income and payroll based taxes with an integrated approach including a progressive national retail sales tax, a prebate to ensure no American pays federal taxes on spending up to the poverty level, dollar-for-dollar federal revenue neutrality, and, through companion legislation, the repeal of the 16th Amendment. The FairTax Act (HR 25, S 13) is nonpartisan legislation.

Thanksgiving is an American Tradition that first occurred because of capitalism succeeded and personal property rights were established. One local writer wonders if the Pilgrims could have survived, much less celebrated Thanksgiving, if they needed a petition drive and endless court proceedings to remove the shackles of central planning.

The Joint Interim Council on State and Local Government head a hearing to learn about problems with how the NKAPC petition was handled in an attempt to correct future problems. You can read about it by clicking here. The Kenton County Clerk was invited to attend and speak but she was unavailable. Interestingly, the Chair of the Committee, Senator Damon Thayer, commented that an elected official has NEVER rejected an invitation to an attend and speak to the Council. The Clerk spoke loud and clear to the more than 24,000 people that signed the petition that she did not want to hear from them either. The following is a summary of what the numbers represent.
