Minnesota North Star TEA Party Patriots to Hold Historic Judicial Town Hall


MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (September 24, 2010) – North Star Tea Party
Patriots, a recently announced coalition of Tea Party groups in Minnesota,
will hold a Judicial Town Hall in Monticello MN Wednesday, 
September 29th, 2010 at 7pm - 9pm. (map) The forum will be held in
the city council chambers of Monticello otherwise Known at the
Mississippi Room.

Candidates will give brief Biographies and then field questions from
the Moderator Attorney Marjorie Holsten.

13 of the 24 candidates seeking election to the open seat in Court 3 of
Minnesota’s 10th Judicial District have confirmed their participation in the
forum. The race is the most widely contested judicial election in the state.
The vast majority of judicial incumbents will go unchallenged this November.



To the best of our knowledge, this will be the first Judicial 
Forum of this type in the history of the State of Minnesota.

It comes in the wake of several legal victories by contested
judicial election advocate & Minnesota Supreme Court Candidate 
Greg Wersal, attorneys seeking election to the bench in Minnesota
have greater latitude than they have in the past to express their
views on legal and political issues.

As a result of these suits,  the US Supreme Court has struck down
many restrictions that Minnesota previously placed on Candidates
for Judge.

Minnesota North Star Tea Party Patriots hopes to provide voters
in the 10th District the opportunity to cast their ballot as informed
as possible.

TEA PARTY - Planning the 2nd Enlightenment (Part 2a of 3)

!
This is an excerpt from one article in a series I wrote on Examiner.com regarding parallels of the current conditions in the USA to the conditions at the time of the 1st "Enlightenment".  Please read the excerpt and, if you find it interesting, click on the link at the bottom of the excerpt to read the rest of the story for free.

"Before I say anything else, let us establish a baseline of expectation.  Think critically.  Do not passively accept any information from any source without vetting it yourself. Next I will say to you what no Politician would ever dare say: "Do not believe anything I tell you".  Do not believe anything i tell you until you can vet it for yourself with your trusted sources and/or upon research in books, libraries and the internet.  Do not believe anything i tell you until you know it well enough so you can explain and defend it  to someone who would challenge you on that issue. Question everything.

Before we go further, it may be useful for you to review the information from TEA Party - Planning the Enlightenment  (Part 1 of 3)

Next, please try to open your mind to a new perspective of the world around you.  Your perception of reality has been distorted and colored by indoctrination, Propaganda, Censorship, Duplicity, misdirection, distraction and Lying, Smiling Faces.  Ultimately, i will suggest to you that if you begin viewing the world around you from the perspective of Natural Law...."

Minnesota CD3 Tea Party Patriots Email Update


Minnesota CD3 Tea Party Patriots Email Update

September 7, 2010
mncd3.northstartpp.com

*Please advise waltershudson@yahoo.com of any events or announcements which may be of interest to Tea Party Patriots groups in Minnesota.*

*Please forward this to your friends and neighbors in CD3 and beyond*

There's a ton of stuff going on this week into next. Most of it hosted by other Tea Party groups around the metro. Let's support them as much as we can.

MN CD 3 TEA PARTY PATRIOTS PRESENT
"FREE TO CHOOSE:" A 10 WEEK COURSE IN FREE MARKETS W/ MILTON FRIEDMAN

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010
7pm
Maple Grove Library, Main Street Meeting Room
ongoing schedule below

Join us for a ten week study of Milton Friedman's PBS series Free to Choose. Each episode contains a half-hour presentation by Friedman covering free market issues, followed by a half-hour discussion with academics and economic stakeholders, many of which are socialists. Friedman takes them all on at once in defense of free markets.

Handouts will be provided to aid viewers in taking note of the arguments. Following the screening of each episode, we'll spend an hour discussing and debating what we saw and how it applies to our modern circumstances.

This course will be a great way to bolster your ability to defend free market principles in the public discourse. We also invite folks who disagree with Friedman's point of view to attend and engage respectfully. This is a conversation which must move beyond the proverbial choir.


Free to Choose: A Personal Statement maintains that the free market works best for all members of a society, provides examples of how the free market engenders prosperity, and maintains that it can solve problems where other approaches have failed. Published in January 1980, the 297 page book contains 10 chapters.

Milton Friedman won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics in 1976. Contrary to normal practice the book was written after the TV series was produced, although the line "Basis for the acclaimed public television triumph" is written on the front cover, using the program transcripts as reference. The book was on the United States best sellers list for 5 weeks.

PBS telecast the series, beginning in January 1980; the general format was that of Dr. Friedman visiting and narrating a number of success and failure stories in history, which Dr. Friedman attributes to capitalism or the lack thereof (e.g. Hong Kong is commended for its free markets, while India is excoriated for relying on centralized planning especially for its protection of its traditional textile industry). Following the primary show, Dr. Friedman would engage in discussion with a number of selected persons, such as Donald Rumsfeld (then of G.D. Searle & Company).

All future meetings for this course will occur at the Maple Grove Library in the Main Street Meeting Room on the following schedule:

Week 1 - Wednesday, September 15
Week 2 - Wednesday, September 22
Week 3 - Wednesday, September 29
Week 4 - Tuesday, October 12
Week 5 - Thursday, October 21
Week 6 - Tuesday, October 26
Week 7 - Thursday, November 4
Week 8 - Wednesday, November 10
Week 9 - Wednesday, November 17
Week 10 - Wednesday, November 24

*EVENT TONIGHT*

The 56 Club will be hosting the charming Patricia Boyd (and possibly a surprise guest or two with her) and learning more about her organization and project(s) .. Minnesota Fallen Heroes Remembered.

*THIS WEEK*

Rally to Recapture America

A local committee of 30 citizens including the Mayor of Watertown, KJ McDonald as Committee Chair, has organized and sponsored a rally to recapture America for “We the People”. The first of its kind in Minnesota, the non-partisan political rally to be held in Watertown on September 8th is expected to draw elected officials from all levels of government representing the second and sixth congressional districts. Rally Coordinator ...and Committee Co-Chair Ben Maas said they expect to fill all 600 seats of the recently built Watertown Performing Arts Center.

This free event is open to the general public to hear from and be heard by their elected officials. Invitations have been extended to Democratic and Republican elected officials and candidates as well as Tea Party adherents. Most have already committed to attend. Michele Bachmann and John Kline are currently expected to be the headline speakers.

The rally should be of particular interest to those who are concerned with the direction that the current leadership in Washington, DC and St Paul is taking our nation. The rally plans to encourage citizen participation and personal action to change the course of events regardless of political party or political persuasion.

Each speaker will be given an allotted time to speak followed by a limited number of questions, time permitting.

The Wednesday, September 8th rally will be held at the Performing Arts Center at the public Watertown-Mayer High School on Highway 25, half a mile west of Watertown. The doors of the 600 seat capacity auditorium will open at 6:00pm with the rally to begin at 6:30pm. The event is planned to conclude by 9pm. There will be no cost for admission.

Mayor McDonald remarked that “We are pleased to invite all voters from primarily the second and sixth congressional districts to join us in our recently constructed Performing Arts Center. The seats are very comfortable.
This quality facility was chosen by the Minnesota Orchestra in 2009 for a public performance.”

“Most folks never get the chance to talk directly to their elected officials”, commented Committee Co-Chair Ben Maas. “I’ve been to plenty of rallies where you hear a lot of taking points from politicians. We want to give citizens a chance to be heard. This ‘tea party type’ rally should accomplish just that.”

The following have been invited:
• Senator Amy Klobuchar (MN)
• Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (MN-CD6)
• Congressman John Kline (MN-CD2)
• Governor Tim Pawlenty (MN)
• Gubernatorial Candidate Tom Emmer (R)
• Gubernatorial Candidate Mark Dayton (DFL)
• State Senator Amy Koch (SD19)
• State Senator Julianne Ortman (SD34)
• State Representative Paul Kohls (34A)
• State Representative Candidate Joe McDonald (19B)
• State Representative Candidate Ernie Leidiger (34A)

TEA PARTY - Planning the 2nd Enlightenment (Part 1 of 3)

This is an excerpt from an article I wrote in re "The Enlightenment" on Examiner.com. Please click the Link at the end of the article to read the rest of the article.

Our USA Constitution and Bill of Rights were born out of the philosophies and reasoning developed during a period of World History known as "The Enlightenment" [ http://digg.com/d31Wtni?t ]. Many of our Founding Father's are noted as important figures in the Enlightenment Movement.( Franklin, Jefferson, Madison, Paine [ http://digg.com/d31Wu82?t ] ) And these same Founding Fathers incorporated many of the principles developed during The Enlightenment into our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Among these then radical thoughts were "Natural Law" , "Uncircumscribed Rational Thought", "Consent of the Governed", "Equality of Citizens and Sovereigns", "Self-Determination", "Public Sphere (Opinion)", "Property Rights" and "Absolute Truth".

Please click here to read the rest of the article - Examiner.com

Those were my thoughts.

As Always, I write with the same intention as Thomas Paine. I seek no leadership role, I seek only to help the American People find their own way using their own "Common Sense"

Video: MN Supreme Court Candidate Greg Wersal interview by Sue Jeffers Part 1 /3 Rule of Law not whim of Judges

!


PLEASE SUPPORT GREG WERSAL FOR MINNESOTA SUPREME COURT JUDGE

WHY?

YOU KNOW THAT LONG LIST OF JUDGES NAMES AT THE END OF 
THE BALLOT WITH NAMES OF PEOPLE YOU DO NOT KNOW...


THIS YEAR, YOU MUST NOT IGNORE IT BECAUSE

SOMETHING EVIL THIS WAY COMES:


YOUR LEGISLATORS AND JUDGES ARE CONSPIRING TO TAKE 
AWAY YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO VOTE FOR JUDGES....
THEY CAN DRESS IT UP AND PITCH IT ANY WAY YOU WANT BUT
JUST REMEMBER ONE THING.... OUR GOVERNMENT WANTS THIS,
OUR GOVERNMENT IS PROMOTING THIS...
DO YOU THINK A CHANGE THEY ARE PUSHING WILL BENEFIT THE
AVERAGE CITIZEN OR THEM?.

COMBAT THIS EVIL ATTEMPT TO 
TAKE AWAY YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE 
FOR JUDGES BY VOTING:

GREG WERSAL
MINNESOTA SUPREME COURT JUDGE 

THIS FALL, MAKE SURE YOU VOTE FOR GREG WERSAL FOR
MINNESOTA SUPREME COURT. GREG WERSAL VIGOROUSLY OPPOSES 
THE GOVERNMENT TAKING AWAY YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE FOR YOUR JUDGES. 
GREG WERSAL BELIEVES JUDGES ARE PUBLIC SERVANTS NOT ROYALTY.
SUPREME COURT CANDIDATE GREG WERSAL BELIEVES JUDGES SHOULD
BE HONEST AND ACCOUNTABLE.

GREG WERSAL HAS TAKEN ON, FOUGHT AND BEAT THE STATUS QUO

WITH MULTIPLE RULINGS HE HAS WON AT THE US SUPREME COURT LEVEL.

WHO DO YOU THINK WILL REPRESENT YOU BETTER? JUDGES THAT GO
ALONG WITH THE STATUS QUO OR THOSE PERSONS WHO HAVE
DEMONSTRATED BY DEED THEIR WILLINGNESS TO HOLD THE STATUS QUO

ACCOUNTABLE TO THE CONSTITUTION AND THE RULE OF LAW?

THIS TYRANNICAL ATTEMPT TO TAKE AWAY 
OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO VOTE FOR 
JUDGES DEMANDS WE TAKE ACTION AND PAY
ATTENTION TO THOSE JUDICIAL RACES ON 

THE BACK PAGE OF THE BALLOT THIS FALL.

AGAIN, PLEASE SUPPORT GREG WERSAL
FOR MINNESOTA SUPREME COURT JUDGE.

Still not convinced....

Would you like the ability to talk to Judicial Candidates just like talking to you next
door neighbor?

Go to "Justice in Minnesota" and click on Events.
Most Sunday nights they have "Judicial Teleconferences" with Judges from all over the state
calling in. They is always a portion of each teleconference that is kinda "over the back fence"
laid back in nature. Ask those questions that those "black robed Royalty" smugly and
arrogantly refuse to answer. I think a willingness to take questions "without a net" is a pretty
good measure of a Judge's Integrity and attitude toward common citizens. Please join us.

If you would like to Learn more or get involved, check out at the links below
