Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

TN House District 57

Also another exciting race here in Tennessee where our RINOs in the TN state gov have redrawn this district around the house of the former incumbent. It's quite funny, actually. Susan Lynn didn't run for the State House last election because she was going for an open seat in the State Senate, when that incumbent, Mae Beavers changed her mind. In the meantime, Mt. Juliet mayor Linda Elam won a three way race for that seat and now is being backed by the TN Establishment.

Susan is deemed to "far out" by many in the Republican Party of TN, which means she's on the right path. She was a trailblazer in putting forth legislation to nullify Obamacare in TN, sponsored an anti-RFID chip implantation bill, and is a big supporter of nullification and the Tenth Amendment. You can see why RINOS would dislike her. By the way, she is planning to move around the corner into the newly drawn District 57, even though the law does not require it. How's that for commitment?

Her opponent, incumbent Linda Elam is a real piece of work. Here she is defending the new train station in Mt. Juliet that takes you to Nashville. Now I'm not against trains, but in view of what we've been learning about Agenda 21 and sustainable development, you can see why aware people would be suspicious, not to mention the costs. Who's paying for this thing? Reminds one of the monorail episode of the Simpsons. Get a load of this:

We are accountable to whom for what pollution levels? This is the opinion of someone ignorant of the devices of the central planners to control population behaviors with arbitrary numbers set by an unaccountable inaccuracy. This woman accepts that control. Furthermore, the interstate doesn't pay for itself? Think about much goods would cost if we still had this situation:

Or if we had semis ambling along the old US highways, stopping at ever red light through town. Yeah, I am sure we wouldn't be paying extra for everything we buy at all! My gg grandpa was a steamboat captain, and my grandpa tells the stories of steaming down to New Orleans from Ohio and back again as part of his summer vacation. They'd pick up gypsies and their horses up at St. Louis and drop them off at Pittsburgh, along with other cargo, I'm sure.

Well, you all know my litmus test for candidates, how far are they down the pike to understand the real threats to America? Your average conservative would say moochers are the threat. The more advanced conservatives see where the moochers come from, and the organized money trying to make all of America dependent. Clearly, Candidate Lynn sees the problems from a Constitutional perspective and not a pragmatic, in-the-now, perspective.

And to dovetail with my last TN post, here is Susan Lynn regretting letting Diane Black, who at that time was a State Senator (who yours truly was not responsible for-voting against her in my very first election), take charge of this bill in the Senate, where it was gummed up:

I can tell you that the Wilson County Tea Party is supporting Elam over Lynn. It is obvious from their website touting the fact that Lynn doesn't live in the district, that there is some sort of agenda here. It's just insane that you should have some sort of bias against Susan Lynn because she no longer lives in the district that was literally drawn around her home just to make an issue. She still lives in Wilson County and has to drive to the 57th district to buy groceries.

I can say that Lynn signs are everywhere. There is not an Elam sign to be seen in my subdivision. Because Elam won with only 38% in a three way race last time, I think she's going to get smoked by Lynn this time pretty hard. That's to the chagrin of whatever powers that be in this area, who will go to some pretty great lengths to keep a Tenther away from the Legislature.


  1. The Republican Party establishment is not a friend of the state or federal Constitution. It is about control and controllable people. Wake up and smell the manure.

    1. I'm sure you've seen where TN is the most corrupt state in the nation. I sure can see and smell it now.
