Dates for the Upshur County conventions of the Republican, Democratic and Libertarian Parties have been announced.

The Republican meeting will be held Saturday, March 22, at a time and place to be determined by the county GOP’s Executive Committee at the committee’s Feb. 8 meeting, said county Republican Chairman Cynthia Ridgeway.

The GOP will likely hold precinct conventions on election night to elect delegates to the county convention, she said.

The Democratic county convention is set for 2 p.m. March 22 at the Newsom Law Office at 203 W. Tyler (just off the downtown Gilmer square’s southwestern corner), announced county Democratic Chairman Dan Miles Jr.

Anyone who votes in the March 4 Democratic primary is eligible to be a delegate to that convention, which will elect the county delegation to the party’s state convention, scheduled for June in Dallas, Miles said. The Democrats will not hold election-night precinct conventions as they did in the past.

The Libertarian county convention is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 4, at La Finca Mexican Restaurant on Warren Avenue in Gilmer, announced county Libertarian Chairman Vance Lowry.

Anyone who did not vote in either the Democratic or Republican primaries held that day may participate in the Libertarian convention.

It is expected to nominate Peggy LaGrone for Upshur County Clerk to run in the November general election against Terri Ross, who is unopposed for the Republican nomination in the GOP primary.

For more information on the respective conventions, contact Mrs. Ridgeway at 903-968-6822, Miles at 903-968-2545, or Lowry at 903-843-2257

Restoring the Republic and Limited Government

Posted on February 3, 2014 by Thomas Mick

As the American people awaken from their mind-control and chemically induced stupor and realize the treachery of Barack Hussein Obama, the first reaction to his actions is to call it treason. After all, he’s giving aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States, modified the rules of engagement to assure that our forces take the most casualties in the wars he continues to deploy the military to, and snubbed and betrayed our allies abroad… sounds like a traitor to me! There is just one small problem with that assessment though… You can’t arrest a foreign enemy agent for treason. Obama hasn’t even shown proof he’s an American citizen, much less a Natural Born one… He’s a usurper and everyone who aided him in usurping the Office of President is a traitor. You must first have allegiance to a country in order to betray it… This spy never had the qualifications to take the oath!

The million dollar question here is, what are the People going to do about those traitors and this usurper? The military has been following his orders despite his lack of qualifications, Congress is afraid of the man for the most part once they took whatever incentive to look the other way, while the courts are blocking efforts to even present evidence of the treachery; there are just too many people in government that committed treason. For them to allow the truth to come out would implicate themselves in the crimes for it runs clear down to City Hall; wherever a globalist supporter sits in office or a bureaucrat implements unlawful orders and laws in contravention of the Constitution.

The cancer that created this boil on America must be torn out by the roots and cast out of our Republic! Are there enough Americans who value the true principles of America that are willing to risk all to restore them? I have written both a Declaration of Restoration and a Plan of Action that involves the People rising up and taking back what has been stolen from them. If you agree with my plan, spread it all over the Republic to every county and begin its implementation at once. In the age of Internet, while we still have the capability, we can restore America to the County level in mere weeks if we have the resolve.

I am NOT advocating insurrection or rebellion against the Constitution and Bill of Rights; anyone accusing me of such is either part of the problem or ignorant. I’m advocating the removal of oath breakers from office and replacing them with faithful servants who will uphold their oaths, while restoring the state of the Constitution before the International Bankers and their corporations began swallowing up America. If we don’t do it before Obama leaves office and the Trans Pacific Partnership gets implemented, we will find our task much more difficult and bloody; IF the American people even care about INDEPENDENCE, LIBERTY, and OPPORTUNITY anymore.
