I've heard it suggested that the first weekend in March would be a good time for a tea party in King. I would like to suggest maybe having it a bit further out, like March 20th or 27th? I believe by doing so, it might provide us a good opportunity for several actions leading up to the event:

- Ads in the local magazines (Foothill Times) to promote the event
- A flyer canvassing date by Carolina Liberty and other groups like perhaps Stokes Freedomworks to advertise the event
- A mini web page advertising the event (I already have a few domains in mind). I've also got some marketing ideas as well. Something graphically simple but dark, spotlighting a group of tea party folks in the middle, like a movie trailer announcement for an intense movie. Something like "On March ___ We the People converge on King, North Carolina. ... __Web address here (has tea party in the name)__."

Carolina Liberty has discussed and has possible funding options available for advertising, billboards and other methods, which we've already discussed during our meeting with Jim Capo of the John Birch Society two weeks ago. We were making plans to advertise in King publications to spread around a survey to the people of King, asking about their satisfaction with current events and the leadership that is there now. The Tea Party would provide a great launching point for a lengthy campaign in King. I've copied several others with this initial message, including Nathan Jones of NC Tea Party. I'm sure he has a lot of experience in this area as well. I've also copied Jack Gibson of Stokes Freedom Works to see if he could provide some insight as well.

Let's get some feedback going here in the forum so that we can establish a date.

By C.L. Gray, M.D.

Historically, practicing physicians have shunned politics. If our democracy is to survive, these times demand thoughtful solutions and difficult decisions. Few individuals are better suited to the task than the Hippocratic physician.

Behind the scenes, a quiet and unassuming movement is afoot destined to reshape the future of American health care—and possibly the entire landscape of American politics.

The House currently has fourteen physicians. The Senate has two. This means less than 3% of our elected officials in Washington come from one of the most trusted professions in America—medicine. But that is about to change.

Rising from the ranks of my home state, three North Carolina physicians are running for Congress to address our nation’s daunting challenges. Dr. B. J. Lawson, Dr. James Taylor, and Dr. Dan Eichenbaum seek to represent the 4th, 6th, and 11th Congressional districts. Should they be elected, North Carolina would have a larger physician representation than any state in the Union—three of thirteen Congressional seats, nearly 25%. But why should America care?

In “Precepts” Hippocrates once wrote, “For if love of men is present, love of the art is also present.” In “On Breaths” he added, “The physician sees terrible things, touches what is loathsome, and from others’ misfortunes harvests troubles of his own.” For the Hippocratic physician, the well-being of the individual was of primary concern—not power, not money, not personal gain, and most assuredly, not the supremacy of the State. The Hippocratic physician was born to serve his fellow man.

But such servant leaders are in short supply in Washington today. An air of entitled aristocracy permeates our political class. Rather than guarding hard-earned taxpayer dollars with sacred trust, politicians spend with reckless abandon. Rather than leaving Washington to live under the laws they pass, most politicians cling to power for as long as possible.

Washington has become a city where pork and payoffs rule the day. Where backroom deals and buried earmarks are accepted as they way things get done. Where health care reform becomes about politics, power, and payoffs, not patient care. Americans chafe against this sad perversion of power. To reclaim our representative government, We the People must find new leadership.

Historically, practicing physicians have shunned politics—and for good reason. As we open the clinic door or push aside the emergency room curtain, our patient’s political leanings never cross our mind. Nor should they.

However, our nation now moves into complex and perilous waters. Trillions of dollars of unfunded Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security obligations must be addressed. The exploding American debt now threatens our very independence. If our democracy is to survive, these times call for thoughtful solutions and difficult decisions. Few individuals are better suited to make these difficult decisions than the Hippocratic physician.

To save the patient the surgeon must sometimes cut to cure. To fight some cancers the oncologist must prescribe chemotherapy. Physicians must not only understand the details of a complex system and make the correct diagnosis, they must treat the illness, even if the patient does not want to hear what the physician has to say. Physicians know that alleviating symptoms does not address the disease, that more is needed however difficult.

The behavior of two prominent physician/politicians, Senators Bill Frist and Tom Coburn demonstrate the credibility of the physician statesman. In sharp contrast to today’s permanent political aristocracy, Senator Frist stepped down after achieving the position of Senate Majority Leader. Why? He had promised the voters he would serve for 12 years and no more—he kept his word. Few individuals can walk away from such power. In contrast to Washington’s common but corrupt practice of earmarks, Senator Coburn has opposed wasteful spending (by both parties) so aggressively he earned the nickname Dr. No. Like Senator Frist, he too has pledged to relinquish power after 12 years of service.

In the fall of 2010, North Carolina may serve as a bell-weather state. North Carolina’s state motto, “esse quam videri”—to be, not to seem to be, distinguishes the politician from the statesman. The politician is concerned with perception; the statesman is driven by character. Voters must decide if these three physicians can be statesmen. If elected, these three men must prove that they are.

Facing overwhelming debt, we need politicians willing to make tough decisions. In dealing with a subject as complex as health care reform, we need men and women who understand how decisions in Washington impact patient care at the bedside. Americans desperately seek elected officials committed to financial responsibility, Constitutional fidelity, and the sanctity of the patient/physician relationship. Two questions remain:

1) Will such servant/leaders rise to the fore?
2) Will We the People recognize who they are and send them to Washington?

C. L. Gray, M.D., is president of Physicians for Reform.

My wife and I attended the National Tea Party Convention last weekend in Nashville, TN.  We were able to meet with other grassroots activists from across the country and share ideas about the movement going forward.  It was a wonderful experience!

Unfortunatly, congress chooses to bury their heads in the sand and hope this all goes away, or society as we know it ceases to exist, and they are alive to reap the spoils.

In spite of promises made on his website and in disregard for all economic common sense, our representative, Heath Shuler, voted in favor of raising the limit on the national debt by $1.9 trillion. In doing so, Mr. Shuler displays his inability to comprehend the basic fact that continued deficit spending will lead our nation to an inevitable financial collapse. The appropriate analogy would be a family, already maxed out on credit card debt, requesting the bank raise their card limit so they could borrow even more money. This obviously would not happen in real life, but our federal government doesn’t operate by the same economic rules that govern our personal lives.

Some would argue that, without an increase in the debt ceiling, the government will not be able to fund next month’s social security checks, medicare reimbursements, military pay checks, and interest payments on the national debt. The obvious answer is to immediately eliminate all funding for useless, non-essential earmarks that serve only to protect the careers of our corrupt politicians. A recently-released list of these projects reveals an obscene waste of taxpayers’ money. Maintaining the current ceiling on the national debt could have forced congress to make the hard decisions necessary to move toward the fiscally responsible, balanced budget needed to avoid financial catastrophe.

Your best bet is to self medicate if at all possible. Here is a link that has a lot of good information and is really just the tip of the iceburg as far as home and homeopathic remedies go. the key is to do everything possible to stay healthy to begin with (no kidding right?) and eat things that will help your body stay internally healthy. Then the bugs and other cooties have something to contend with!
