Revolution

It is often said war is when the politicians tell you who your enemies are, and revolution is when you figure it out for yourself.

And right now in Virginia we are in the middle of a new Revolution, one based upon the founding ideas of our Republic and led by the people, not the political class.

The true result of the November 2019 election is not the ‘blue wave’ of power in the General Assembly as Democrats have taken the majority in both Houses, but rather best seen in the town halls, meeting rooms and gun shows where a sleeping giant for liberty has awakened.

And this is not a re-hash of the ‘Resist’ movement the political left has adopted since President Trump’s election, but rather a full scale political revolt. We are not simply playing defense against tyrannical laws, but rather going on the offense to take Virginia back.

One not led by politicians, nor talking heads, nor the establishment, nor political parties or even the media, but rather a movement unlike ever seen before in this century, a true revolution of the people.

Gun-Rights Leader: Virginia ‘Second Amendment Sanctuary’ Movement Just Getting Started

By Stephen Gutowski - November 27, 2019 1:45 PM

The head of the group pushing Virginia counties to refuse to enforce unconstitutional gun laws, declaring themselves "Second Amendment sanctuaries," told the Washington Free Beacon he has seen an unprecedented groundswell of support that he expects to only grow.

When Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) president Philip Van Cleave spoke with the Free Beacon on Tuesday afternoon, 15 of Virginia's 95 counties had passed sanctuary resolutions; five more joined that night.

Van Cleave said that his group would typically garner up to a hundred people at the General Assembly for past gun bills, but that nearly a thousand showed up to support the sanctuary proposal in rural Bedford County.

HOORAH!

The Democrats have finally joined the Tea Party. Now let's go after all those RICH FARMERS with FARM USE TAGS on their vehicles while equally hard working citizens pay thousands annually to license and insure their "work" trucks.

Wharton's Olivia Mitchell and Leora Friedberg of the University of Virginia discuss the $4.4 trillion public sector pension shortfall.

Not Enough time, Not Enough Money

Sanitation workers, firefighters, teachers and other state and local government employees have performed their duties in the public sector for decades with the understanding that their often lackluster salaries were propped up by excellent benefits, including an ironclad pension. But Moody’s Investors Service recently estimated that public pensions are underfunded by $4.4 trillion. That amount, which is equivalent to the economy of Germany, accounts for one-fifth of national debt. It’s a significant concern for public employees who were banking on a fully funded retirement to get them through their golden years.

"DID YOU KNOW"

***************************************************************************************************

The Mindset of Our Elected Officials

1. Support the continuation of increased State funding for the K-12 Education
2.Support equal authority among all of the counties to levy & collect a tobacco tax
3.Enable counties , on the initiative and action by their governing bodies, to
establish a meals tax, without referendum, at a rate not to exceed 8 percent.

Let's invite King William taxpayers to see for themselves the mindset of our elected
officials. 16 States have experienced declining school age populations and " increased funding"
as if no consideration should be even weighed as to KW student population projections.......just
increase the funding ?

The second and third both note either a new tax or authority to raise an existing one ( meals tax).
The special wording----WITHOUT REFERENDUM--- is worth highlighting since it clearly embodies
the mentality that citizens should shut up and just sit down............"we know what's best for you"

This is a textbook example of why I have driven the issue of the G.A passing Referendum Reform here
in Virginia. The Wall St. Journal cited 2 years ago in an article discussing the various states laws
on Citizen driven referendums, and called out Virginia ,stating " Virginia's referendum laws are from
the dark ages" Perhaps this might make a interesting topic for the local newspapers who might have
some interest in exposing why the G.A drags their feet, when citizens want more control over local
taxing/spending related issues. It is not without note that they included that very specific language"
without referendum" in their letter.

These Board members continue to cite the " state mandates" that drive spending up in localities
being forced to spend money to satisfy these mandates forced upon them. Perhaps I missed it....but
do you see any mention of asking the G.A to freeze or eliminate any of these mandates they like to
whine about ? Or is it perhaps just a convenient excuse they roll out again and again when they raise
taxes ?

School Spending Will Increase This Year In Spite Of Falsehoods Promoted By Chairman Greenwood
Greenwood Called A Reduction In Debt Service Payments A Spending Cut
Greenwood Campaigned And Told Voters He Intended To Cut Spending
Greenwood Claimed - The Level Of Funding Initially Proposed By The State And Later Reduced
A "Spending Cut" To The School Budget

-------------The Facts Tell A Different Story------------------

Kw County Schools Will Spend Hundreds Of Thousands More This Year
Than Last Year------Greenwood Is Misleading Citizens, And He Knows It!
Does A School System With 4 Schools Really Need A Superintendent And
An Assistant Superintendent?
These 2 Positions Alone Account For
Almost $300,000 In Annual Salaries /Benefits !

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kw County Has An Excessive Reserve Fund Of Over Some 6.4 Million Dollars?
The .02 Reduction In The Real Estate Tax Rate Is Nothing More Than
A Loan Of Your Money To Give A Home Owner A $38 Reduction In His/Her Tax Bill
Greenwood Borrowed (From You) $38 To Give You A $38 Tax Reduction On Your Tax.

-------------Does That Make Any Sense To You?--------------

Why Does The B.O.S Keep Such A Large Reserve Balance?
To Fund Their Pet Projects And Wish List Items
This Is Why Government Spending Is Out Of Control.
The Solution
----Reduce The Reserve Fund Level Permanently.
If Citizens Allow Them To Keep This Large Balance - Just What Will They Do?

-------------Spend, Spend ,Spend !---------------------------

Supervisor Greenwood , Moskalski And Hodges Voted To Fund A New Regional
Government Economic Commission With Your Tax Dollars
This - In Spite Of Not Answering The Following Question........
What Do We Have To Show For The $200,000 Spent In The Last 10 Years
On An " Economic Consultant " Where Did That Money Go, To Whom And For Just What


------------- Specifically ? ------------

Either They Can Not Or Will Not Answer That Question---We've Tried
So Why Throw More Of Our Hard Earned Money In Another


-------------- Government Boondoggle Program -----------------

85% Of The Money Will Be Spent On Salaries /Benefits For Another
Government Entity With Nothing To Show For It, No Different Than The Last
10 Years And $200,000 Already Spent That They Refuse To Account For !

Welcome to the new King Willam County Virgina Tea Party Website

We want to keep the citizens of King William County informed of issues on a local, state and national level. 

The King William TEA Party is an independent political movement loosely aligned with other local, state and national TEA Parties.  We are a grass roots movement who take our name from a historical act of defiance against the King of England when Americans thought they were " Taxed Enough Already." 

We believe in a return to sound fiscal policy at the federal, state and county level. We believe in Federalism and the limits of federal power that our founders intended.

The King William Tea Party does not condone nor will it tolerate racism, sexism, or religious intolerance or bigotry in any form within the ranks of its membership or at any of its sanctioned events.  Such beliefs, attitudes, and activities are contrary to the basic rights of all humankind as outlined in the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Declaration of Independence.

Our goal is for this site to keep you informed of political events, news, and issues that are important to you, the citizens of King William County Virginia.

Our next Meeting is on Jan 23, 2020 at 6:30 pm at Upper King William Library 694-J Sharon Road - Central Garage
In the Sharon Office Park after King William High School.

Chairman --------- Robert Shannon
Vice Chairman -- Vacant
Treasurer --------- Fred Krauss
Secretary --------- Robert "Sarge" Bruce
