Another Tea Party Patriot Debacle

Arlington National Cemetery

I received the following email concerning the primary vote in North Carolina on May 8th. I do not know why some names are capitalized and some are not. This is another example of how the Tea Party movement is missing the point of restoring our founding principles. Mitt Romney and Pat McCrory are the best examples of how the Republican party forces candidates on the people. Mitt Romney is a Tea Party candidate? In what universe? The same universe that shoved McCain down our throats.? How can any patriot group support Pat McCrory after his progressive record in Charlotte:

During his 14 years as Charlotte’s mayor, McCrory was pegged as a moderate Republican by most voters and as a RINO (Republican In Name Only) by conservative critics. He championed light rail; the U.S. Whitewater Center; transportation and land-use planning; tree ordinances; sidewalk policies; the Uptown arena; and other projects that routinely angered conservatives. 
Dan Forest without mama’s money would have no campaign. Steve Royal for North Carolina Treasurer over Frank Roche? Has anyone compared these two candidates’ qualifications?

At least this group was consistent: as far as I could tell, all endorsements are Republicans. For anyone who votes according to another person’s or group’s endorsements, I recommend explaining your decision at any of the thousands of graves of soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice to give you the freedom to vote for the best candidate of your own free will. We get the government we deserve when we are too apathetic to take the time to vote based on our own research and beliefs.

    Frank Roche is on video from just days ago saying the Fed doesn’t print money and they have done a good job over the past 100 years. Sorry but no way in heck! Not sure the other guy is better just sayin’

    “I think the Fed, Since its inception has done a good job.”
    ~Frank Roche, NC Treasurer Candidtate

  2. John Bradley says:


    I agree whole-heartedly. Not only was Mr. Roche wrong in that video, he was arrogant and condescending in his effort to discredit Adam Kokesh’s line of questioning. I was embarrased for him, it was so bad.

    I found this page as a result of a Google search for Steve Royal. It seems you beat me to the punch.

    Steve Royal -- The treasurer needs to be man/woman of simple and honest principle.

    He is the one for the job, it is our duty to support him in anyway we can.

    I am continually impressed with him, at every step.

      I do not know about Mr. Royal’s principles but I would be more assured if he was principled AND competent. Can you address his qualifications?
