Several Dallas Tea Party members report being not allowed to vote today while wearing Gadsden flag t shirts and pins and Dallas Tea Party shirts. Today was the first day of early voting in the State of Texas. The Dallas Tea Party is currently investigating and speaking with lawyers to determine how to respond.More here at angrywhitedude.
Reportedly, several members at different polling places throughout the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex were told they could not vote while wearing clothing articles depicting the Gadsden flag, pin and/or the Dallas Tea Party. They were told by polling officials wearing these articles represented electioneering at the polling place, which is illegal.
By electing conservatives, we hope to infuse the GOP with new ideas and common sense. That they are not there already is no surprise. Sadly, we citizens bear the weight to “be” the media, and we must “be” the support for good candidates. Ronald Reagan turned things around for Republicans back when. Obama turned things around, badly, for the Dems. A few good folks in politics can have a far reaching effect. We must never again give over our watchdog duties. The professional media is in collusion with corrupt politicians. That leaves us. Let’s not bash the GOP days before an election. Let’s improve it. There is so much to be disappointed in. Let’s move forward with a positive attitude and courage and resolve. We will NOT give up on this country. We can’t, actually. We must stand for freedom here, because if freedom dies in America, we have no place left to go.This is my response on GP to a commenter who observes that the GOP could do much better in the PR department.

We are doing all we can to confirm and document this. But if is IS accurate, and a newborn child was ripped from her mother's arms because the parents were "associated" with Oath Keepers by simply being members of our online ning discussion forum, then this is a grave crossing of a very serious line, and is utterly intolerable. It cannot be done. It cannot be allowed to stand.My question is, what did the mother do to justify removal of her baby. Even if the father had "issues", what did she do. Why was the baby removed from her as well.
If it is true, then I will do all in my power to stop it. We will pull out all the stops, every lawful means of seeing that this child is returned to her parents and that all persons responsible are held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. There can be no freedom of speech, no freedom of association, no freedom to even open your mouth and "speak truth to power," no freedom AT ALL, if your children can be black bagged and stolen from you because of your political speech and associations - because you simply dare to express your love of country, and dare to express your solidarity and fellowship with other citizens and with active duty and retired military and police who simply pledge to honor their oath and obey the Constitution. It was to prevent just such outrageous content based persecution of political dissidents that our First Amendment was written.
If true, then this is as bad, and in fact worse, than any of the violations of liberty that our Declaration of Independence lists as the reasons for our forefathers taking up arms in our Revolution and for separating from England. We no longer have freedom at all if this is allowed to be done. And we will not let it stand.

Stewart Rhodes Founder of Oath Keepers
Stewart will post additional statements and info as this situation develops. Please be ready to flood the responsible parties with phone calls and emails to put public pressure on them in the court of public opinion.
The deputy attorney general is the second highest-ranking official in the Department. The use of the term “current thoughts” implies that there were prior thoughts and ongoing discussions with the second highest-ranking political official at DOJ about how to handle the case.Mr. Adams notes that the media has repeated not only this lie, but also the lie that he himself had been demoted, and thus was a disgruntled employee. To the contrary, he says. He had been given a better assignment and pay grade.
Further, the logs show dozens of communications between senior DOJ political officials in the two weeks prior to the dismissal of the case.
