How Did We Evaluate the Candidates

A Tea Party endorsement reflects what the Tea Party stands for. Basically, we want politicians to treat our tax money like you treat your own money: Cut taxes, cut waste, spend within your means. If our politicians do this then they need to use the Constitution to set priorities and allow business to take over those items that are not the responsibility of the State or Federal government.

Click on the link to see what then President Bill Clinton had to say about illegal immigration.

Ya gotta wonder why the Democrat party changed its position. Was Bill Clinton that wrong or is there another reason for the complete abandonment of his ideas on immigration.

“Donald Trump should just televise this Bill Clinton speech from 1995 and then simply state ‘I'm Donald Trump and I approve this message.’"

The Manatee School District Interim Superintendent

by Linda Schaich

School board Community Activist

The most qualified person for that position is Dr. Susan Agruso. She has volunteered for over three years on the district audit committee. She has a Ph.D., has been a superintendent in the past and is familiar with the installation of our new computer system. Dr. Susan Agruso is the best choice.

“You plotted evil against me, but God turned it into good.” (Gen 50:20 GNB)

How encouraging to know our enemies can plan and scheme against those of us who love our nation, our freedoms, our Constitution… and our Lord. But God can use it for our good.

Here’s a bit of history that’s a great example of God’s working for us.

Watch the video again for encouragement and hope!
