Finding Gems and Sharing Them

Philosophically I am a conservative, limited government freedom lover and a co-founder of R3publicans in 2008; OKGrassroots and Constitutional Liberty Coalition were born shortly after that in the early Teaparty days.

What is really important to me though is what is eternal and you will see more of my Christian ministry and writings on my personal blog.

Senator Nathan Dahm speaks out on huge tax increase passed — 3/4 of a $$$Billion

Senate “Republicans” just passed the largest tax increase in state history…

That’s right. Three-quarters of a BILLION dollars in new taxes! To the sound of applause, my Senate colleagues raised your taxes.

I had to speak up.

In Oklahoma, I won’t be silent while establishment Republicans and liberal Democrats take money out of your pocket. And in Congress, I can guarantee it won’t be any different. 

If you’re like me and you’ve had enough of the tax and spend RINOs, then SHARE our video and consider joining our team of grassroots conservatives.

Thank you and God Bless.

For the People

A Message from President Trump for Passover/Easter and more about this Season

“Both of these sacred celebrations remind us that God’s love redeems the world… Happy Passover, happy Easter, thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.”

May YHWH be pleased to bless us as a nation and as individuals!  Thanks President Trump

On Facebook recently, Chris Lavers shared this about Passover and the relationship to the death burial and resurrection of Yahshua (Jesus), Messiah, the one slain before the foundation of the earth:

OK2A March Meeting with Senator Nathan Dahm on March 22 at Heartland Church in Tulsa

This just in via email from Wayne Hill:

 Here is the notice for our March meeting this Thursday evening (March 22) at 6:30.  Our quest speakers will be State Senator Nathan Dahm who is a US Congressional Candidate for the 1st District.  Senator Dahm is a strong supporter of Liberty and the 2nd Amendment.  He is the author and sponsor of many of our bills.  Please come and show your support for our friend Senator Natham Dahm.  We will also have a legislative update.

Please invite your friends and relatives.

In Liberty,

FGST:  Results are in – Bartlesville Passed all 4 Propositions, but…

All four propositions passed.  However, Proposition 2 (which included Price Tower Park and Amphitheater) passed by a much thinner margin at a little over 66% (all of the items required a 60% or more vote to enact); the other propositions passed by about 79%, 83% and 81% respectively.  A voter turnout of 4,138 people made this decision for a city with a population of approximately 34,748.   Bartlesville is in a declining population mode which means fewer people will be paying into the property tax base to cover these bonds.   That is about 8% of the population voting in this special election.

Maybe we should eliminate special elections and have these matters on general election ballots so that more people would participate.  Just a thought…

For more info on what was actually on the ballot and how much money we just authorized spending – see my previous article here: https://scrosnoe.wordpress.com/2018/03/06/oklahoma-special-elections/

FGST:  50-Year-Old Man Cures Lung Cancer With Cannabis Oil  #Yeson788

Not too long ago, a 50-year-old man from Illinois was diagnosed with “incurable inoperable” lung and pericardial heart sac cancer. The doctors told him he had about a year to live, but could opt to undergo chemotherapy to extend his life.

As you may or may not know, the survival rate of lung cancer is incredibly grim. It is estimated that the prognosis for Stage IA non-small cell lung cancer is less than 50%. Sadly, this drops as the cancer progresses. For a Stage IV patient, the likelihood of recovery is 1%.

Aware of the odds against him, patient Darren Miller decided to supplement his chemotherapy treatments with cannabis oil. Clearly, he didn’t just want to extend his life, he wanted to save it.

After researching the benefits of cannabis oil and reading hundreds of other peoples’ personal stories of healing, Miller was confident the treatment was right for him.

FGST:  The Raw Nerve of it All — Arrogance and Corporate Greed of ‘StepUp’ Plan

Yes, I am mad as a hornet and wanting all the representatives in Oklahoma to know it!

There is NO excuse for raising taxes when you have not dealt with waste and fraud and SWAG.

Really folks go back to the drawing board. Clean house first. Cut across the board if you need to do so. But at least make an effort to get your house in order before you come asking the taxpayer for more!

Now we have this ‘StepUp’ corporate money group wanting you to pay more while they still operate with tax credits. Well sure they do. You taxpayers gonna go for it?

Tell your representatives what you think – politely, but quickly. They will be voting this week on picking your pocket some more.
