Vote for my Friend

George Phillips for Ohio’s 60th House District.

I am not going to go into a surrogate campaign speech for George on issues as his website  http://www.phillipsforohio.com can do that better than I can. I WOULD like to tell you about my friend George, as I know him.

I learned of George shortly after I completed my campaign for the United States Senate, after the 2012 election. I heard good things about him but didn’t know much until I met him over a year ago when I ran for a local school board position. George attended campaign events I held and it was clear after we met that he was a man who believed in what I was doing, namely taking a strong stand for our children and our residents. After that election up until now we have become good friends and I’ve known George away from the campaign trail and have been honored to get to know his wonderful family. Some folks don’t know this but George is also a professional ring announcer in addition to his day job so you KNOW he has the voice to be heard in the State House!

We’ve laughed about a lot of things and we’ve had serious discussions as well but one thing is sure, I can honestly say he is someone we desperately need representing us from our district in Columbus. He is a champion of The People.

Residents of Willoughby, Willowick, Wickliffe, Eastlake, Painesville, Grand River, Fairport Harbor, Timberlake, Lakeline, Mentor on the Lake and parts of Mentor, you make up Ohio’s 60th House District. When you vote this week, next week or at the polls on Election Day, November 4th, please consider voting for a man who is a wonderful husband and awesome father but more so my friend, whom I humbly endorse and a man in who I believe is ready to take the lead, stand up for our children and bring jobs back to Ohio!

 

Yours Always in Freedom,

Go Vote….While You Still Can

Exercise your right to vote……while you still can.

The greatest gift of living in a Representative Republic is that WE the voters hold the key to the future of our nation through the elected officials WE elect into office. It is also up to US to hold them accountable for not acting in the better interests of the city, county, state and nation when they fail to do so. THAT is where Election Day comes into play. No other time, other than being a member of a jury, are you endowed with absolute power as We The People and far too often people fail to act, they’re uninformed or they think they’re vote doesn’t matter. It does matter. This week, next week or on Election Day, November 4th, VOTE. Embrace your rights within our God-given Liberty.

 

Yours in Freedom,

When IS Enough Enough for YOU?

America, when is enough enough?

Do you have to wait until the orders have been given or that it is announced that Liberty has been vetoed? See through the smokescreens, see through the lies. Understand that our everyday freedoms are being stripped away bit by bit every day. We, as American people charged by our Founding Fathers, to reign in this government, cannot allow this to continue.

Turn off the mainstream news and just look around you. You WILL see that this isn’t the same country it was 10 years ago. We’ve taken leaps toward THAT place that George Orwell told us about. THAT place we were warned about yet have failed to embrace the facts surrounding its encroachment.

CHALLENGE each and every member of Congress to stand up against the White House’s tyrannical power plays and grow a backbone. You have every right to do so, we elected them. They DO work for us and they must be reminded of that. Come November get off your asses and VOTE. If not they will forge your vote against you as they did in 2012. Throw EVERY possible obstacle in front of the establishment. They appear to be taken marching orders from a globally coerced agenda rather than those of us who elected them. Take the stand and tell them no, we want our sovereign nation back. TAKE THE STAND FOR THE SAKE OF OUR CHILDREN’S FUTURE.

Nobody in America can ever really get to enjoy life anymore and it’s not just because of the economic failings of Washington but it’s because every generation is constantly FIGHTING to ensure the next generation is safe. This is even harder to do when the very people we’ve put into office are plotting, scheming and working against the principles of American values.

 

It is time for us to bring this pseudo-tyranny to an end. Even if it means challenging the global puppet masters. Let’s roll! Let’s get it done! Let’s restore our Republic!

 

Yours Always in Freedom,

Capt. Rusty Bliss

Matt Lynch for OH-14

My fellow Republicans,

I realize the growing rift within the Republican Party and it has shown me who really is who when it comes to defending “We The People” and to some extent who can truly be trustworthy. I have seen the titles “Conservative” and “Tea Party” hijacked by the establishment GOP after 2010 because it was something that won. We can’t be undercut by this move.  Guys, it wasn’t the name or title that won it was the belief behind it as it was when Ronald Reagan led a Conservative uprising that saved America. Because of this I would like to take this opportunity to return from the political shadows after several months to throw my full support behind my friend Matt Lynch for Ohio’s 14th District of the United States House of Representatives and I urge all of you to do the same.

During his time in the State House, Matt has showed he is ready to take a stand for Ohioans. He doesn’t dance around issues, he tackles them head on. His undying effort to take a stand FOR our children and oppose the evil of Common Core standards in Ohio schools is just one of the ways we’ve seen a man no afraid to take on Washington at the state level. He chose not to support Governor Kasich’s budget plan because it INCREASED THE SIZE of government in Ohio and that’s NOT what we want. This is the kind of person we need IN WASHINGTON taking the fight to the establishment right in their backyard, unlike our current Congressman.

Lynch

While I was campaigning in the U.S. Senate Primary in 2011-12 I got to know Matt. I could tell right away he wasn’t an “establishment” guy. Many might ask what does “establishment” mean? Simple; going along to get along in government regardless of what those who elected you believe. Saying you stand for The People when you really stand for an agenda waiting to be put in play regardless of the will of The People. Putting your own political aspirations ahead of your constituency. That is NOT Matt Lynch but it IS, however, every bit a description of his opponent and those that surround him.

I have followed Matt and his work in the Ohio House since then and was very impressed with how he opted to support our children in the fight against federal intrusion into our classrooms when others chose to ignore it. He also voted against what our Governor proclaimed to be a balanced budget when in fact it was a plan that actually blew up the size of state government. He will not march to the beat of John Boehner (who has already showed his disregard toward what The People desire) in Congress and he’s not afraid to take on the NSA and stand strong to repeal Obamacare.  What makes Matt different than his opponent is that he’s a solid individual that truly possesses strong Conservative values and principles, he doesn’t just hijack the title or try to proclaim it a half dozen times in radio and TV ads.If you’re a Conservative, we’ll know it, you don’t have to try and pound it into us.

Matt Lynch is not afraid to rolls up his sleeves and take it to the establishment and he is not the type of man who will be coerced and corrupted by establishment muscle moves. Not only is he proudly endorsed by FreedomWorks, Ohio Right To Life, and the National Association for Gun Rights, he’s got the nod from REAL Conservatives in the 14th District, including myself.

He’s fought FOR OUR CHILDREN,  he’ll fight FOR OHIO and FOR LIBERTY.

Next Tuesday, in the May 6th GOP Primary election VOTE FOR MATT LYNCH. Conservative, not establishment. He’s proven he’ll work FOR The People.

 

Yours Always in Freedom,

USMC Birthday and Veterans Day

This Sunday, November 10th, will mark the 238th birthday of the greatest fighting force on Earth, the United States Marine Corps. My father served in the Corps in the late 50s and early 60s and he shares the same birthday as the military branch he so proudly served. I guess it was a bond meant to be.

This Monday, we take time to reflect on the sacrifices of those men and women who have served our country. Originally a date marking the end of World War I ninety-five years ago, November 11 has taken on a broader meaning. It gives us all an opportunity to thank those who have put on the uniform to protect the rights we hold so dear: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

When you see a veteran or a current member of our armed forces say thank you. Because without their acts of duty and for some, sacrifice, America would have never been free.

Yours in Freedom,

Campaign Wrap Up

Thanks to everyone for their of this campaign and the small handful that did great legwork: friends, family, the mayors, council people and parties who endorsed, especially the voters who took a stand for our kids. I assure you I will be back again if called upon to run to serve The People. Until then we fight to empower and enlighten parents to retake the rights they have to control the course of their children’s education.

Congratulations to my friend Amy Zuren for winning one of the three spots in the election. A true fighter, Amy knows the mission and she’s plenty capable of being a voice of The People on our school board.

Our kids come first.

Yours Always in Freedom,

The One-sided Ambush and the Sacrifice of Our Children

Non-partisan got very partisan last Wednesday at the debate at Willowick Middle School. The questions were ok, they could have been more creative. Some were clearly planted but it matters not. Some candidates were vilified for not attending, again who cares, worry about those who were there.

The best questions came from Willowick’s Mayor Bonde who went to bat for his city and it’s reputation and a question from a concerned parent who simply wanted to know if his kids would have AC and heat at North high school. A very concerned young lady had a great question about what would happen if the levy fails too. Bad things, we all know that and it would take a ton of creative thinking to find a solution.

Mixed in were digs at me about Common Core by teachers union leaders who never asked about the teachers but “tried” to mail me on funding and curriculum. He failed. Treatment of teachers is tops on my list RIGHT BEHIND STUDENTS and he knows that regardless his dismay with me lies in the fact of my political affiliation (which is a non-factor in this race). I guess he missed the part when I said we must explore EVERY OPTION to reduce class sizes and provide better conditions for our teachers. It was BACK to “well don’t you want to talk about Common Core.” My response was “where were you last night when I held a town hall meeting about it right down the street?”

All in all it was fun. I had some good conversations with our superintendent throughout and you’d be surprised that we agree on a lot more than we disagree on, we just need to work on the avenues we’d use to reach solutions.

There’s obviously concern in the district if 8 people are running for 3 spots. I’m not doing this for fun (campaigning is far from that) or the money (mine would be used to fund field trips at the discretion of my children’s PTC). I’m doing this to protect our children’s future and their right to a free, honest education spared from federal and global (YES the U.N. endorses Common Core) intrusions.

Last Wednesday night several candidates “attempted” to defend Common Core by saying ” it’s what’s coming or it’s been adopted ( albeit blindly).” It’s the same folks that complain about school choice. Hey it’s the law right??? I guess the double standard only works one way.

I guess these that sit by and welcome Common Core, as wrong as it is, would be the same folks that say “hey the Germans are already in France why should we go?” or “hey you already have the disease, no point in treating it, it’s here.” THAT IS THE MENTALITY OF ANYBODY WILLING TO SIT BY AND WATCH THIS POISON BE SEEPED INTO OUR SCHOOLS. If it’s wrong and YOU KNOW it’s wrong it must be fought against and defeated! Parents have the power. Use it before it is stripped away.

If any of the bright minds that attempted to defend the merits of Common Core that evening saw what Catholic school students are dealing with now (having adopted most of Common Core over a year ago) they’d see reduced arts, reduced “factual science”, phys ed classes turned into reading classes with any form of competitive play banished and music depleted. How can this be good for developing well rounded individuals? These are things critical to developing the full potential of an individual.

I am the only candidate in this race willing to take a stand FOR our children, FOR our teachers and FOR our taxpayers. From what I have seen and heard, Larry Luciano, Sharon Scott, Connie Newyear and Dan Hoffman are willing to go “all in” to sacrifice our children’s future.

I will stand guardian at the gates of our children’s education and not allow our children to be cast into the role of robotic human capital striving for mediocrity, rather they will be given the education they deserve to build the best possible lives for themselves as successful individuals.

Yours Always in Freedom,

Targeted by the Opposition

It humors me a bit that some would see me pitted against our Superintendent and our teachers. Nothing is further from the truth. I fully support our teachers in every aspect and they saw that first hand this evening. My target, the door being left wide open to welcome a curriculum designed to trample a student’s exceptionalism and retool it as mediocre. Our children should strive to be the very best, not just “in attendance” in life.

I have taken a firm stand FOR: Our children and their parents, Our teachers, who are the backbone of our district and the taxpayers.

I have taken a firm stand AGAINST: The future implementation of Common Core Standards in our schools. Parents don’t like them, the kids don’t like them and teachers don’t like them. So why use them? Ahhhh federal funding….at the expense of, well, only our children’s education.

It can’t be stated any clearer than that.

Yours Always in Freedom,
