Salem 912 is Back!
October 28th, 2013
We are re-energized, re-organized, and committed to our 9 principles and 12 values. Local Control, Free Markets, Limited Government, Personal Choice, and Individual Responsibility.
Times have changed but our foundation doesn’t need to. These are the principles our country was built on and they’re just as effective today as they were when America was founded.
Plus, we have technology on our side. From getting involved on social media, working with a group of motivated individuals who share your values, or even becoming a citizen journalist, we can help you get started.
So, if you’re ready to do more than yell at the television, mark your calendar for Friday November 8th and be at the Scottish Rite Center in South Salem at 6:30 pm.
Our guests will be Representative Kim Thatcher, and US Senate candidates Mark Callahan and Jo Rae Perkins.
Get Connected, Get Educated, and Get Active.
Defend Rural America.
September 19th, 2013
Rural America is an overlooked national treasure. With the attention paid to the cities and their issues, those specific to rural America are often ignored. Please show your support and get involved by visiting: http://www.defendruralamerica.com/DRA/Home.html. If they lose, we all will lose. Their fight is OUR fight!
Because our major purpose is to educate, Salem 912 will continue to be a conduit of information for increased knowledge and networks for those who love liberty.

Track Their Vote!
June 28th, 2013
With hundreds and even thousands of bills being considered each session, it can be a discouraging task to follow your state legislators. A healthy democracy requires easily available, transparent information. Oregon Citizen’s Lobby has developed this site as a way to keep you informed. We rank the bills based on their importance, determine how they should be voted on and provide a short summary and even more detailed analysis, if you like. Even if you don’t agree with us on every bill, we hope you find this a useful tool to keep you informed.
Use this website: http://www.tracktheirvote.org/ to see how your local legislator voted on bills you are particularly interested in.
What constitutes tyranny?
May 28th, 2013
In other words, when it arrives, what form will it take? Please consider this question. Is it likely to appear overnight, or do tyrannical behaviors and institutions tend to start fairly innocently, and grow over time, becoming more dangerous as the abuses are not checked? Here is a link to an article from the Washington Times online, titled “Tyranny in our time“. Would the relationship between the citizens of this country and those elected to represent them today likely find favor in the philosophies underlying the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution and its Bill of Rights? How should tyranny be handled?
Tyranny doesn’t have to originate from the higher levels of an organization, be it political, economic, or social. When a captive audience is created (for instance, in the TSA security lines) the deck is stacked against you. Often it is delivered locally with ignorance — yet without malice — as in this story: http://billstclair.com/theclairefiles.com/Personal/faceevil.html. At its heart is an individual or group deciding that controlling another individual or group is warranted. When that behavior becomes political, it is a codification of (a “making official”) a social action already taken.
I came across a video of a parent being manhandled at a school board meeting on Common Core. The video may be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XEQmUnisDEM&feature=youtu.be. Would you say the response from security personnel constitutes tyranny? How about this one, about a run-in with the IRS by a businessman in Michigan: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/sep/26/dehko-bullied-by-the-irs/, Perhaps the king of recent abuses, cited in this satirical take on the Affordable Care Act/Obamacare: http://themattwalshblog.com/2013/09/25/right-wing-obamacare-myths-debunked/.
The topic of “What constitutes tyranny?” and the related question of what to do about tyrannical excesses should figure in one of our upcoming meetings. Read the rest of this entry »
