Joe “The Plumber” Wurzelbacher in Searcy, January 26th

Joe “The Plumber” Wurzelbacher is coming to Searcy.  Joe gained national attention during the 2008 Presidential election after a conversation with then-Senator Obama in which Senator Obama famously stated, “I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”  He went on to stump for McCain-Palin ticket, speaking on small businesses issues and taxes.

Joe will be in Searcy January 26th at the Lightle Center campaigning for Col. Conrad Reynolds for U.S. Senate.  The event begins at 7:30 p.m.

State Rep. Hopeful Refuses to Answer Policy Question

A concerned Searcy citizen submitted this letter to The Patriot:

“I met Jesse Boyce at Congressman Vic Snyder’s recent meeting at the Lightle Center in Searcy.  When I introduced myself to him, realizing he is a candidate for State Representative, I asked him what his personal position is on abortion.  His response: “I’m not going to tell you.” Then I asked him, if he had an opportunity to vote on the abortion issue, how would he vote (pro-choice or pro-life). His response: “I’m not going to tell you.”  Continue reading

Citizens Take Over Searcy City Hall

Tonight, many good citizens were denied the right to address the Searcy City Council.  Being the defenders of liberty that they are, two citizens would not take no for an answer.  After the meeting was adjourned in the middle of Alderman Nutter’s comments, the people booed and mockingly clapped as the aldermen rose from their seats and made their way out of the room.  Steve Sterling, Jim Dixon, Dale English, and Belinda Laforce huffed and puffed their way out the door, some yelling at the people, while the people yelled “You cowards!”

They settled just outside the window when they saw Mr. Niblock take to the podium.  He asked the people if they would like to hear “the case for liberty.”  The people cheered and remained seated for his remarks:

After Mr. Niblock finished speaking, Mr. Garret Myhan took to the podium (full text posted below):

These men deserve the respect of every Searcy citizen for their courage and their devotion to the cause of American liberty.   Tonight’s events were a huge step towards the reclamation of The People’s rights, but this is just the beginning.  Continue to fight the good fight.

Mayor Laforce DENIES Citizen’s Request to Speak to Council

Mr. Myhan, a contributor to The Patriot, sent a request to the City Clerk to be on the agenda for the next Searcy City Council meeting.  The following includes his email and the Mayor’s response–think it would hold up in court?

In September, Judge Tom Hughes ruled that the City of Searcy illegally denied the Searcy Friends of Voters’ petitions to have the A&P Tax placed on the ballot.   Nonetheless, the city is still refusing to set the election date.

Friends, the battle for liberty is here and now.  We have laws for a reason.  It is time we demanded that our elected officials stop stomping on the state constitution and the city code.

It is time to call your Alderman and tell them to set the election date–find their contact information by clicking here. Not sure what Ward you live in?  Click here for a map of Searcy.

Also, show up to the City Council meeting, this Tuesday night, November 10th, at 7 p.m.  The meeting will be held at City Hall on Arch Street. Continue reading
