April Meeting Wrap-Up

Monday night’s meeting was nicely attended. The Majority Rules game was a great success and was a great ice breaker as this was LATP’s first general meeting since January. Another of the many things that media gets wrong: conservatives have a great sense of humor!

When asked what Independence Day means to you, one of the replies was “The last day of Obama’s presidency!”
Tony Demott, with Campaign for Liberty, gave a brief update on the effort to defeat Prop 1. Many who stand to benefit financially from it’s passage are pumping out millions dollars for of adds to convince people to vote in favor of the may 5th proposal.
State Senator Pat Colbeck gave an update from the legislative perspective telling the audience the money to fix the roads is already available. The state has increased Michigan’s state budget by $4.7 billion in just the past four years. Many legislators do not want to do the difficult work of re-working the budget to find the money. He and other law makers have ideas to propose for May 6th should the ballot initiative fail.
Former Mayor Janice Daniels gave an excellent presentation on keeping our legislators true to their campaign promises. She outlined how we as a country, have let the Supreme Court get away with mis-interpretations of the Constitution when it comes to religious freedom. It was evident Janice is trying to hold recently elected Congressman David Trott to his campaign promise of limited government. A few of his recent votes have gone contrary to his statement that he believes government has gotten too large by voting for large increases in the national debt. Her List of Constituent Guidelines for Effective Constitutional Government is available upon request.

Sandi Bockelman recently attended a conference whose guest speaker was Lt. General Jerry Boykin. She was so moved by his message to the Christian community that she wrote a brief summery.
