Trayvon Martin – FURTHERMORE – The news letter of America News and Views March 22

Host Bob Murphy, Our Tea Party Liaison Carey Masci, and US Representative Candidate Dave Macko were discussing events and news.

I was asked why a Libertarian in the booth? Well to that I ask is it God, country and then party? If it is then what matters is the person’s stance on issues.

Dave Macko is pro-life, in favor of removing the US from the UN, limiting if not eliminating the EPA, and would love to see Obama impeached, all Conservative stances.

Our country is in trouble and anyone who recognizes this and is in the battle to restore freedoms to our country we should give an ear and listen.

Now to the newsletter:
Trayvon Martin
Racism is alive and well when it should be dead but the blacks and liberals keep fanning the smoldering ashes to bring it back. When I first heard about the murder of Trayvon Martin I didn’t jump to conclusion I needed to know more.

The first thing I did was research the crime statistics for the area where the altercation took place. Researching the crime stats would tell more of the story or fill in some blanks.   According to Neighborhood Scout (  )the city of Sanford has a crime index of 3 – which means the city is safer than 3% of the cities in the US. A score of 100 is safest. A score of 3 wouldn’t make you feel so secure would it?

The specific area where this happened was the gated community of Retreat at Twin Lakes but from another article taken off the web I found this …police had been called to the 260-unit complex 402 times from Jan. 1, 2011 to Feb. 26, 2012. Looking at these stats puts things into a little bit of a different perspective.

I am not giving George Zimmerman the shooter a free pass but the point I am trying to make is the real victims of a killing like this are the people who live in these crime ridden areas that are almost like prisoners and don’t know what else to do.

Until America changes her moral path, addresses poverty, chases out liberal judges who hand out lenient sentences and we end this poor me attitude and place the blame on the criminal not the victim of the crime out of frustration these unfortunate acts and killings will continue to happen.

Is Santorum reading my blogs?

Santorum said it would be better to elect Obama instead of Mitt. OK maybe those aren’t his exact words but that’s what’s all over the Internet and it’s just what I have been saying. So let me say it again and again and again – YES – it would be better to elect Obama over Mitt. I don’t know why this is so hard to understand.

Let me try once more.
If Mitt gets elected the issues of Christianity, homosexuality, abortion, mandated government programs are off the table. No more will they be discussed, Republicans will become just like the Democrats. We need to hold the fort and get a true Republican elected.

Gaffs vs. Lies
Let me try it this way.
Gaff – Obama: I have been to 57 states. No rebuttal, no spin, dumb stupid gaff.

Lie – Mitt: I am not for the Blunt amendment. Spin time: I am for the Blunt amendment the question asked was confusing.

Gaff – Obama: Eau Claire is a big important state
Lie – Mitt: we have to speed up the foreclosures so investors can buy. Whoops: Mitt then said government should help banks to keep people in their own homes.

Understand yet? A gaff you don’t have to correct, you laugh and move on, with a lie or when you speak honestly but it doesn’t help your campaign you have to spin and cover up your previous statement. Mitt doesn’t make many gaffs. He is telling you the first time what he wants and intends to do. Mitt is a very moderate to liberal Republican if you can call him one.

Surprised by the poor showing of Ron Paul.
I thought we would see a three way fight between a Conservative (Santorum), Libertarian leaning (Paul) and an establishment (Romney) candidate battle until the end with each hovering above or near the 30% mark.
I know Paul has some unconventional ways and thinking but I thought he would be doing much better. Very surprising. Maybe he will have a late surge, anything is possible.

Carey Masci
I lived through the race riots of the 60’s. It’s a real shame in the year 2012 we are still having race issues but the truth is our country and the world will never eradicate all hatred or predjudism. But what each one of us can do is when a situation like Trayvon Martin happens is let the courts handle it and not jump to conclusions.
We must not allow this to divide America, that’s what the enemy wants, we must not fall for it. And if each one of us would lend a helping hand to those in need and a welcoming smile to everyone we meet America would be a far better place.
That’s how America will stay United.

Bob Murphy

Tebow & your words FURTHERMORE – The news letter of America News and Views March 29

FURTHERMORE –The new letter of America News and Views with Bob Murphy & Chairman Dale Fellows

The People Speak
These are comments from various people I have met the last few weeks. Everyone had something meaningful to say so much so that I thought it was good enough to pass on.

Dave first time voter
This will be Dave’s first election and he’s excited. I asked whom he likes and Dave replied I guess Romney but I like Santorum also. I then asked being a younger person I thought you would be in favor of Ron Paul. His reply was Paul believes in things I don’t like legalizing drugs we all ready have enough problems in this country with drugs.

A client of my janitorial business who is a Lawyer who has appeared in front of the Supreme Court twice says he thinks the Supreme Court will kick Obama Care down the road because it is not fully implemented. There is not much to vote on yet so they might not rule until 2014.
And I add…. If this is true, Obama Care is here to stay because if a ruling is delayed until it is fully implemented then the argument will be in 2014 it will cost more and do more damage to repeal it.

Robert pro-lifer.
I saw Robert’s van parked while I was leaving the bank. I told him I liked his bumper sticker – Abortion Is Not Healthcare. He said thanks I usually get the middle finger. Two days later he recognizes me at O’Reilly’s Auto Parts. I asked if he is involved with politics. He said not really mostly on pro-life issues, in fact if the Democratic Party were pro-life I would vote Democrat. I then asked what he would do when Romney gets the nomination. He said it’s not over yet, I am a Roman Catholic and our Bishop told the congregation to fast and pray for Santorum.

93 year old Bob
I met Bob at a Wickliffe restaurant. In our 15-minute conversation we talked about everything, his ’92 Plymouth Acclaim he still drives, UFO’s on to politics, Bob told me he is not into politics, politicians are all the same. It’s getting where you no longer vote for someone but against someone.
Too that I agreed and he left.

Somethings to make you think
Paul Ryan’s budget plan passes the House, the following day he endorses Mitt.

The data shows how disillusioned Republican voters are. Less people are voting in the Republican primary than in 2008. The big reason is many are fed up with the way Mitt has been pushed on us and most feel it is inevitable Mitt wins the nomination so why bother to vote. In a year when enthusiasm should be running high the GOP establishment has squelched it by hand picking the primary winner they want but the majority of voters don’t.

What to do with Tebow? Get him out of town. And the reason is, his public display of faith. Why else would Denver sign an aging super star with a bad neck? Because they are throwing a bone at Bronco’s fans, we got rid of Tebow but look who we got, Payton Manning a hall of famer. IF Manning still had it in his tank the Colts would of paid the money. Let’s see what happens with Tebow in NY.

The VP watch.
OK Santorum isn’t dead yet and maybe there is a miracle waiting to happen but the murmur and talk is still all about Mitt and who should he pick as his running mate or as I have been putting it who will be Mitt’s Sarah Palin. As in the last election with McCain, Conservatives may be voting for VP not president but it still won’t be enough.
Carey Masci
Democracy was on display this past Monday night at the Lake GOP Headquarters. Best central committee meeting I went to in 35 years. We got vocal, we exchanged thoughts and arguments, voted down one measure, voted in agreement on another, held group caucuses to elect precinct leaders and voted for Vice Chair.
I was really elated there was that much life at the meeting. I would of been worried if the attendees were despondent but that was not the case. Everyone shared in ideas for the good of the party and our nation.

Here’s a little saying for you – In here we fight, out there we unite.
It’s OK to argue and discuss as long as when the whistle blows you unite. It’s no different than a close-knit family and that’s how we are in the Lake County Republicans like a family.
And for those of you not involved, you really should get involved and become a part of our family.
Your Friend,
Bob Murphy

FURTHERMORE – The news letter of America News and Views March 15

Host Bob Murphy along with Co-Host Chairman Fellows were alone and sparring in the studio on March 15th.

Lets jump right into this weeks news letter.
We have to be careful and better educated if we are to win over Democrats and Liberals. We need to research, learn history and quit running on emotions.
Many of us are very against Obama and his policies and no matter what he does or says he is automatically wrong but what would you say if I said Obama could be right on a few issues, maybe more?
For instance when Obama said drilling for oil won’t help (lower the price of gas) most of us thought he was nuts. But guess what, he may be right.
The US currently has a record number of drills working, either for oil or the recent discoveries of natural gas (LNG). The companies drilling for oil are in trouble because of the recent finds has driven the price down. In steps China. China needs oil and LNG. And guess what? They have the money to buy buy buy and are willing to pay more. So if you are a US energy company where prices have fallen flat and you have another country willing to pay more what would you do?
If China does start purchasing from the US that will make China compete against us for our own natural resource and prices will go UP. In Texas China has invested billions and formed a partnership with Chesapeake Energy Corp and they own one of a third stake in another US company Devon Energy.
So you can drill for oil all you want but that won’t lower the price not when China is willing to pay and invest.
Obama part 2.
 The recent Arizona immigration bill was deemed unconstitutional by the Obama administration. Again the people were up in arms. But was Obama right?
According to a book I am reading American Government In 1921 by Frank Magruder Ph. D. c. 1921 it says on page 210:
In 1914 Arizona provided that any company or individual that employs more than 5 persons must employ not less than 80% qualified voters or native born citizens of the US. This law was declared unconstitutional because of its enforcement would have discriminated against aliens and thus would have deprived them of the equal protection of the State’s laws.
YES I understand today’s immigration law from Arizona is different and maybe the key word is illegal alien rather than just alien (or are they the same?) but there are precedents and these previous rulings that were declared unconstitutional towards aliens which we did nothing about has set the stage for our current problems that have opened the floodgates.
So technically Obama has been right. But where Obama has failed as president is he should try to correct injustices and protect the American people but right now he is doing neither.
The rumor mill keeps on spinning about Mitt Romney and Ron Paul’s collaboration to get Rand Paul picked as Mitt’s VP if he does grab the nomination.
I am hoping this is in fact just a rumor as in a few years I would love to see Rand Paul run for president and being a patsy for Mitt will not help his stature. He would then be known as Mitt’s Sarah Palin when Mitt loses to Obama. Not even a Rand Paul or Marco Rubio will save the Mitt ship from sinking in November just like Palin couldn’t save McCain.
Santorum could lose big in November. YES here is why, if by some miracle Santorum does pull off the upset and beats the chosen one Mitt the establishment would not be happy their man lost. They could play politics and not back Santorum. We have seen this game many times on the local and state level. Stay wise to this as you will have to work extra hard to get Santorum elected over Obama, that’s if Santorum wins the nomination over the Chosen One.
Carey Masci



Here’s my short commentary for this week, short and to the point.

America is a great country. We were the envy of the world. I just don’t understand this philosophy of social engineering and the push towards globalization. Trading with world partners for goods is one thing but to make us all equal is another thing. We should never have to lower our standards to be equal they should have to raise theirs. And that’s what socialism and one world government does, it makes everyone equal at a lower level not better.

Election Thoughts – FURTHERMORE – The news letter of America News and Views Mar. 1

Monday, March 5, 2012 7:13 AM
Host Bob Murphy, Co-Host and the Boss Dale Fellows, Write In Senate Candidate Rusty Bliss, and Mark Holder were in the studio and for the second half Jessica Krammer stooped by for a visit.
Bob is always open with his thoughts but in this show he reveals his true desire of who he would like to see as president and its not the candidate he is a delegate for.
Election Thoughts & More
I wrote in the last news letter that I received a robocall from the Mitt camp blasting Santorum for running ads wooing Democrats to vote for him in Michigan.
Well well well… What is all over the internet? Romney was the one who pushed for the open primary in Michigan. So Santorum takes advantage of this by trying to get Democrats to vote for him and Mitt cry’s foul. The way Mitt is running his campaign makes you wonder how he ever became a multimillionaire.
And what about this bit of interesting trivia… In the ’92 primary Mitt Romney voted for Democrat Paul Tsongas.
The thing that is troubling to me is this…. It took YEARS to change the image of the Republican Party from one of being strictly a rich white mans party. Little by little it was being chipped away and then Reagan became president. It was because of him the Conservative Right was born or at least had a major revival. If Mitt grabs the nomination he will undo all the changes that have been made to the GOP and once again it will be known as the party of rich white men and the Conservative Right well…. we will be homeless.
I hope Ron Paul will read this. On Lawrence O’Donnell show he had as a guest a lesbian who was upset that the priest refused her communion at her mothers funeral. O’Donnell and this woman went on and on how bad this was. The church eventually buckled and issued an apology.
This is nothing more than another attack on our religious liberties. This priest was in the right to refuse this woman communion if he felt she was violating the sanctity of it and the church bylaws. That’s why we need a leader NOW who understands that religion is under attack in this country and that it needs to be protected. A Federal Marriage Amendment is needed in this country before any more of our religious heritage and freedom is eroded.
Jay Sekulow has sunken-low. The Chistian Lawyer who heads ACLJ that fights for moral rights and such laws as Obama Care came out and endorsed Mitt Romeny over Santorum because Santorum endorsed Sonia Sotomayor and Arlen Specter.
Help me understand this Folks cause I am mad and confused. I just donated money to Jay’s outfit to help over turn Obama Care but he then endorses a candidate that started this healthcare mess and also supported homosexual rights, same sex marriage and abortion rights over a Christian candidate that endorsed two liberals but stood up for Christian causes and even stopped partial birth abortions.
Is Jay nuts? Which is worse? He is off my list and should be viewed as alien to our Conservative causes.
I been receiving heat for my stance of telling people not to vote in November if Mitt is the nominee. My thinking is this, our goal should not only be to defeat Obama but to replce him with a true conservative moral leader.
Lets just suppose moderate to liberal Mitt wins the presidency and does nothing or screws up voters will be very angry once again and the pendalum will swing back to the left and Republicans will be ousted from the House and Senate as backlash. So its best to concentrate on retaining countrol of the House and win the Senate if Romney gets the nomination and not vote for the presidential slot in November.
George Will has said just about the same thing recently in varying words but has included all the GOP candidates which is where we disagree. Maybe now you will understand what I was saying because I am no longer alone with this thinking.
Also another reason…. We keep talking about changing things but then we go out and vote for the establishments candidate. When are we as voters going to have a spine and say NO you will not dictate the candidate that we vote for. Thats the only way to change things.
No matter how hard they try they can’t get prayers and God out of school. A Chardon student was interviewed immediately after the shooting and the reporter asked him what they could do. The student replied – PRAY FOR US! It’s as simple as that, pray for us.
Maybe in another news letter I can explain what is going on with the youth for that matter adults as well who are snapping and doing extreme things. The more social tinkering, the more the outcome will be bad.
So that’s what liberals think. At a restaurant I asked the waitress if she was going to vote. She said she is not into politics to which I responded well vote for the one who promises cheaper gas because we can’t afford these prices and as a hint, its not Obama. She said actually I went to Washington to protest the pipe line. In politite terms I said why, we cant afford these prices we need that pipe line. She came back at me with well then you will have to do like I do pick up another job so you can afford the gas.
Most people can’t even find one job and she wants me to work two just to pay for gas? Thats liberal thinking.
Carey Masci
I hope you are ready for Tuesday. You need to get out there and vote.
As long as you are informed and vote what your conscience dictates then there is no right or wrong vote. The important thing is – VOTE.
This is your chance to make a difference. No vote is ever wasted. Even in a losing effort your vote represents an oposing view that can open dialoge and change things in the future.
Just vote!

FURTHERMORE – The news letter of America News and Views March 8

Host Bob Murphy, Our Tea Party Liaison Carey Masci, Former Senate Candidate Rusty Bliss, and Mark Holder.

Bob revealed something on the show that everyone needs to hear. In fact Bob said that this was probably the most important thing he has ever said on the show in the 15 years of doing it. Please listen, it will shed new light on this years Republican primary process.
I know the below commentary may be late because we have already voted in Ohio but I wrote this because of what I keep hearing.

It gets real tiring trying to explain to people that the main objective is not to defeat Obama. It isn’t, plain and simple, it isn’t. We are in the primary season and Obama is not a concern of ours yet. The goal for the Republicans should be to nominate the most qualified, the most conservative and the one who follows the principles of the party. Voting for anyone else who falls short of these points is a wasted vote. I don’t know why this is so hard to understand. People seem to be skipping over the primary process.

YES – I do know how the media and the MITT-nipulation that has been pounded into your psyche that only Mitt can beat Obama can mislead you but still that is no excuse for not doing your homework. Even Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said on a major cable news show when asked why he was for Mitt but now for Santorum said I didn’t think Santorum had a chance to win…… Wonderful!!! Even our attorney general has fallen prey to this thinking of trying to pick a winner instead of voting on principles but at least he has woke up.

I myself when I made my decision back in April that Santorum was my candidate I did so not because he had the best chance of winning I chose Santorum because he has scored above average to very good in ALL categories, he was consistent and adhered the most to conservative philosophy. I wasn’t concerned about beating Obama or if Santorum could win.

Let me put it in sports terms using baseball as an analogy. Santorum reminds me of the player who may never hit 50 home runs but you can always depend on him to come through, a team player, a real leader. When the game is on the line you want him up to bat because somehow he will get on base.

That’s what people need to consider before voting, who is the best candidate and quit worrying about the outcome. I chose Santorum because I believe he is a the true conservative and if he wins the nomination I won’t have to worry about beating Obama in November because the best player will be coming up to bat.

Commentary about what is going on within the Republican Party:
I am a team player only when the team I am on plays by the team rules and bylaws that the team has set forth and are suppose to follow; that’s why I joined or chose to be part of the team because I agreed with their platform.

But when the team I am on drifts from their rules they can not expect me to follow the teams path or go along with them. Sure I could be like some and toss aside the rulebook or I could stay and fight to change the team back to its principles or I can look for another team that has principles that align with my beliefs and that stands firm and steadfast to their party rules.

But this I do know I for sure will not sit back and do nothing. The former team could ostracize me for supporting another team but its their actions that have caused me to drift not my own.

I wrote this in regards to what happens if Mitt gets the nomination. I will be looking into a third party candidate – PERIOD.

I said on air that our elections are turning into a third world circus. Bob disagreed with me but this is what I meant by that statement.

When I was in the Philippines 2 years ago it was during their elections. The newspapers had numerous reports of vote tampering and buying votes. Some candidates were outside of polling places handing out bottles of water and some were giving away $5 if you voted for them. And its widely reported especially in countries with dictators or that are communism that the vote count is played with or so slanted towards the candidate they want to win its almost impossible for the opponent to compete.

Now I am not saying we are there yet in America with this kind of behavior but if we don’t get a handle on it it wont be far off. But then again the way that super pacs are run with countless dollars and all the negative ads and changing primary rules to benefit a candidate maybe its closer than I think.

Carey Masci

Here we are in March with no clear winner regardless of all the money spent on ads declaring a winner in the Republican primary.
I still feel when the American people are given all the facts they will do the right thing and this proves it. The media can only go so far. Ultimately in the end its up to the voter to educate him or herself and we are seeing that happen.

America News and Views news letter – FURTHERMORE
There was room in the booth as only Host Bob Murphy and Write In Senatorial Candidate Rusty Bliss were in but that didn’t stop them from filling the airwaves with the truth you need to hear.

Being absent I enjoyed kicking back and listening to the show. Another side of Capt’ Bliss came out, his personality really shined on this show. Great guy.


In this letter I am going to give you random things to think about.

Get ready folks these high gases prices are going to be budget busters for all local governments. There is no way they will be able to balance the books. So look for these things to happen if gas continues its upward climb. Taxes levies, increase in licenses and permits of all sorts AND be careful where you park and how you drive. The revenue (police) will be out in force to help bring in much needed funds. Drive smart and alert.

There is this feel sort of like a feeding frenzy of hungry piranhas. Everyone needs to stop. We have to ask ourselves what are we trying to prove? There are no perfect candidates. Some of the questions I have been fielding about Santorum are things so absurd its ridiculous, such as is he for abortion? That’s crazy! Quit listening to the liberal media and Mitt and Ron’s ads. Do you own research or listen to shows like Bob Murphy’s where you won’t get mislead.

The only candidate I am staunchly against is Mitt. You can go to numerous web sites and listen to him then and now. He has switched positions on so many issues where does he stand??? Mitt would be a disaster going up against Mr. GQ who can have poise and debate well. Not only that but you know darn well it will be brought out front and center Obama’s background is of community service and Romney’s is of Wall Street that caused the problems. Obama understands your plight Romney has no clue, trust me this is coming.

This is what I wrote in May of 2011 it’s a review of the first GOP debate.
Sometimes you need to use common sense with the Constitution as with all laws and life. Technically he (Paul) is right but would legalizing drugs help this country? Would legalizing drugs make crime go down? Would it lower the number of people who need mental health clinics? Receive welfare? This is a national issue, not a state issue. The same with marriage, you cannot allow states to make their own marriage laws. What happens if two people marry and then move into a state that doesn’t recognize it? This is obviously a national issue. Ron needs to tone down his freedom a little. In a free society you have to restrict certain freedoms to ensure that freedom continues. PERIOD!

So the winner is Senator Rick Santorum. If you asked me what one thing I liked about his message or can I quote him, honestly I can’t. But he said a lot of little things right. He is morally to the right, which really comes out strong listening to him. His limited government stance is also a positive. But the biggest thing going for Santorum is his moral beliefs. America needs someone right now that knows right from wrong. I believe Senator Rick Santorum is the man.

For this reason I have somewhat soured towards Ron Paul. His statement of Santorum is a fake in the last debate just struck me as this guy is not prime time ready to represent the US. If anything look into Santorums morals and characters and the fact he is pro-life that is starting to swing the pendulum towards over turning Roe Vs Wade. To say fake Paul does not understand what being a Conservative means and he has not looked into the good Santorum has done to push the dialog and country back to the right. If Paul loses he has no one to blame except himself for taking extreme positions. Plus with all the chaos going on right now, we need someone who is firm and steady in his moral beliefs. America is eroding fast.

We are down to 4 on the GOP side that’s it. The media keeps talking about a possible brokered convention where someone else such as Palin could waltz in and grab the nomination if the delegates cannot agree on a choice. I would be adamantly against such a thing. I chose my candidate Santorum back in April after reviewing the candidates; it took just a week to do so. I figured if you couldn’t make up your mind if you are running for the most important position in the world you are not ready to have my vote. So if someone comes to the convention and says I’M HERE without going through the primary process they ain’t getting my vote – PERIOD.

Finally… Friends we have to be careful here. The goal of any enemy is confusion. Once you confuse the people and divide them they are conquered. So before asking me my opinion on a subject, which I am honored you do so but…, please check the source of where it came first. If it’s from the left side you are not going to get the truth, that should get you started in the right direction.

Carey Masci
Instead of ending this with a comment as I usually do I will give you a peak into Thursday’s show.
We will be talking about what is going on with our children, the Chardon shooting – the Arizona and Michigan primary was does this mean how important was it – Santorums presidential speech even though he came in second – why didn’t Demora defend himself – Obama’s move on the insurance business and the big news Santorum coming to Lake County plus what ever other random topic that may come up.
So please tune in we would love to have you drop in and of course please email your comments to:

The Greek House meeting review, Udovic – Shannon – Bauman – Lisy – Fiebig

The Greek House Review
I want to thank everyone who attended the meeting at the Greek House in Wickliffe this past Monday February 20.  It was an informative meeting with a lot of back and forth with the speakers. 
Joe Udovic opened the meeting with prayer for unity within our group and our country followed by the Pledge of Allegiance that was started by Jimmy Kelly.
The first order of business was introducing Jimmy Kelly Presidential candidate for 2036.   That made everyone chuckle and applaud him.  But I really do feel he has a future either in politics or public speaking, at 14 he is more than knowledgeable on the issues.
The first speaker of the night was Joe Udovic who spoke on a letter he received at his house. It involved the EPA and the wastewater treatment plant.
Euclid is asking residents to pay an additional 10 dollars per month on a quarterly basis for sewer charges. 2 public meetings have been scheduled Sat Feb 25, 10 am and Thu March 1, 7 pm.  We need to get organized with the Republican Party and Tea Party and take a stand immediately. Residents cannot afford any more fees.
Next to speak was Ellie Shannon.  Ellie informed us of the Personhood amendment for Ohio.  She likes the Heartbeat bill but it doesn’t go far enough.  The Personhood amendment would give a fetus the right to life.  She passed out the petition for us to sign it and encouraged other to help gather signatures to get this on our Ohio ballot.
Pastor Melinda Bauman came up next.   I made everyone laugh when I said Pastor Melinda will give a short 5 minute sermon so you better relax we could be here till midnight.  The title of her message was “The God of America”.  It was about the Christian roots and heritage of America.  Pastor Melinda did keep it short because of time constraints so I will have her back to give the full message.  Stay tuned for that I think you would enjoy hearing it.
The main speaker of the night was Ron Lisy who is running for State Central Committeeman.  Ron explained what the position is for.  A State Central Committeeman’s job is to get feedback from fellow Republicans in his district and then go to Columbus to voice those concerns back to the Republican headquarters.  Ron is tired of HUGE amounts of money being spent on beating fellow Republicans when that money can be saved to battle the Democrats in the general election.  He wants to see the party go back to its roots and quit drifting to the left.
  Ron Lisy was a delegate for Mike Huckabee and currently a delegate for Rick Santorum.
Half way through the meeting Dave Fiebig joined us.  I had fun with Dave by introducing him as such…. Our next speaker is Dave Fiebig who is running to be one of Obamas Czars.  Everyone collectively gave a HUHHHHH!!!  I thought it was funny.
Dave Fiebig is campaigning for one of the open spots for Lake County Commissioners.  Dave is a business owner, has served as Willoughby Hills councilman at large since 2008 and is a Lake County Republican Party Precinct Committee member.  He gave a short concise speech of some of the duties commissioner has and some of the needs of Lake County.
In conclusion, it was a successful night, mission accomplished.  Thanks again to those who attended and all the speakers.
