GOP State Committee Called

Updated: Tuesday, GOP State Vice Chairman Wayne Hill called an official meeting of the State Committee for January 27th in Oklahoma City.

Beginning his call with notice that the “State Committee is the supreme authority of the State GOP,” Hill notes an internal struggle in Oklahoma’s Congressional District 3 and apparent betrayals by GOP elected officials. Hill writes, “Our ‘Republican’ Oklahoma Labor Commissioner, Leslie Osburn, supports LGBTQ ideology and chaired an organization indoctrinating our children. Our ‘Republican’ US Senator, James Lankford, worked on language for a bill with Chuck Schumer to allow more illegals into our country and further compromise our border.”

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt in a statement on U.S. Supreme Court Rulings on Same-Sex Marriage today said, “The Court’s decisions confirmed that it is up to the states to decide how to define marriage, not the federal government.”

Attorney General Pruitt continued saying, “As a result, Oklahoma’s constitutional provision that defines marriage in Oklahoma as between a man and a woman remains valid.”

On our national debt

As our debt climbs, the anxiety climbs and the options to solve our fiscal crisis shrink. The nation has watched the Executive and Legislative branch become more and more dysfunctional in the past 20 years, now it is reaching a fever pitch.  The frustration across the country matches the frustration in Washington.

What we are experiencing as a nation is similar to what a marriage experiences when the couple is heavily in debt.  Millions of marriages fail because the husband and wife constantly fight over money.  Without question, a marriage is more likely to succeed when the family is not in debt.
