Officials in the Oklahoma Republican Party are still in denial about the September loss of a perpetually GOP-held seat in a special election for House District 85. At recent county and state GOP meetings, I heard the often-repeated mantras that the Democrat “outworked” the Republican, that more “liberals” are moving into the district, and that […]

The Oklahoma Grassroots campaign is the inspiration of long-time political activist and blogger, Porter H. Davis. After earning his MBA in Organizational Behavior, Davis became a participant in Oklahoma’s political arena. From serving as an early State Chairman of the Libertarian party, to winning election as the Republican State Representative to House District 85, to founding a state-level public policy think tank, he is steeped in political tradition and practice. He’s made three trips to the Republican National Convention as a Delegate.
Porter’s search for solutions to our many problems has convinced him that the missing link to restoring limited, accountable government is strong, local precinct organizations focused around the town meeting. Further, that vision goes beyond politics to become a strong, cross-party, support structure for local communities.

Without the unifying focus of a national campaign, the high level of activism ignited by Paul’s candidacy is gone. Scattered efforts to supply this vision have yet to gel into an effective political force. What follows is a […]
We in the Liberty Movement need to focus on becoming community organizers in our own neighborhoods and precincts. Grassroots organizing is essential to help us survive this crisis and restore a free society. Let’s transform our own states into Free States, establishing the principles of Liberty in our metro, county and state governments. Enforce the […]
This was originally scheduled for release October 31. Technical difficulties delayed it. Today is November 1 — the start of the reduction in food stamp benefits to almost 50 million people. Most were not aware this was coming, and few who actually need them to eat will not be affected. Get prepared NOW! * […]
“So, what’s your plan, Porter?” I’ve been challenged with those words often over the years in response to blogs, emails and Facebook posts I’ve written chronicling the deteriorating state of America. Economic collapse, the emerging police state, failed foreign policy, assaults on our health, collapsing morality and internal division threaten our national survival. We can’t avoid […]
