M.A.P.S is coming….Are YOU Ready?

M A P S

Introducing M.A.P.S…

Dear Fellow Patriot and Constitutional Conservative:

As you know, we need to ensure that Constitutional Conservatives get elected this November so that we can end the Bailout, TARP, Porkulus, Obamacare madness both in Washington and in our own backyard!
As the TEA Party Movement grows and matures, more citizen activists are asking for concrete ways that they can put their energies to work for candidates who will carry their message of constitutionally limited government and fiscal responsibility to Washington, Lansing, county seats, city halls, even school boards. With so many seats up for grabs this year, knowing where to donate time and resources can be overwhelming!

To address this growing need for action-oriented opportunities which will put lead on the proverbial target to stem the tide of the job-killing, freedom-threatening, Obama/Pelosi/Reid agenda both locally and nationally, Grassroots in Michigan and the Lansing, MI TEA Party are pleased to announce the launch of the Mobile Action Patriot Strikeforce, or M.A.P.S.

Time: May 13, 2010 from 7pm to 9pm
Location: Community Faith Church
Street: 2495 North Cedar Street (behind Krogers)
City/Town: Holt, MI 48842

As the TEA Party Movement has never been “one-size-fits-all,” some TEA Party activists may choose to engage directly with their local political party, while others may choose to work directly with specific campaigns. M.A.P.S provides a unique opportunity for Constitutional Conservative grassroots activists to come together, as folks did to elect Scott Brown,to provide a manpower boost when and where it is most needed. In doing so, we insure that our principles and values are being advanced in the places that matter most.

Don’t wait!

There’s much work to be done between now and November and the stakes have never been higher.Sign up today at Grassroots in Michigan

We know we want to Take Michigan Back! We also know how to get there from here. We’ve got our M.A.P.S! Now it’s time to roll! Don’t miss out on the fun.

Please join us!

MAKE A CALL FOR MICHIGAN SOVEREIGNTY TODAY!


I spoke with Rep. Opssommer yesterday and he informed that he would be having a meeting with Mark Meadows THIS WEDNESDAY about HJR YY

As you recall HJR YY would amend Michigan’s Constitution by creating a Federalism Commission to charged with monitoring and reviewing federal laws and mandates to determine if they violate the Michigan Constitution or if they violate such areas as the 9th and 10th Amendments of the US Constitution. If any law is considered unconstitutional then legislation is introduced to nullify it. HJY YY also includes Memorandums of Understanding which have created a “shadow government” by contacts that often exceed authority.

HJR YY is in House Judiciary Committee now.
Committees can be where bills go to die.
We need to get it out and on the committee calendar!

YOU CAN HELP BY CALLING OR E-MAIL TODAY

Tell Rep Meadows you want HJR YY to be put on the Committee Calendar for a hearing

Rep. Mark Meadows, (Chair)
Phone: (517) 373-1786
Fax: (517) 373-5717

Together we can Take Michigan Back!
