OK, now I am really starting to see a pattern develop with Ms Braddock and her Tea Party stand on taxes.

I guess I was misinformed. I understood the Tea Party movement to be about smaller government and reduced taxes.

But after learning of $36,000+ in unpaid, delinquent Federal Withholding taxes owed by Ms Braddock, with an IRS lien in place......

And then another $46,000+ in State of Georgia Withholding taxes owed by Braddock with a State of Georgia lien in place.......

And another $9500 in unpaid State of Georgia Sales & Use taxes owed by Braddock with a State of Georgia lien in place......

And NOW another $17,000+ in Cobb County ad volorum taxes owed by Braddock, I am at a loss.

Are we to assume the Tea Party Movement under Braddock and Galloway and company are not only for reducing taxes, but an actual revolt by at least Braddock personally by refusing to pay her Federal, State, and County taxes ?

Yet she wants to be re-elected?

For real ?

And I guess this revolt includes thumbing her nose at the Federal Court System since she has refused to pay a Judgment awarded to the Xerox lawyers in July 2011 by the Federal Courts, and now actually sits in Contempt of Court with a new threat of arrest and incarceration by the US Marshalls should she fail to pay up in 80 days ?

Not to mention filing for dissolving Atlanta Marketing Solutions, Inc. this past January, granted by the Secretary of State on March 21, 2012 where she filled out the forms stating, rather erroneously, that all her debts and obligations had been taken care of prior to dissolving the company.

IRS taxes, State Withholding as well as Sales & Use taxes, and Cobb County Ad Valorum taxes all going unpaid, as well as her unsecured creditors for thousands and thousands of dollars.

And just who covers those unpaid taxes like the Federal and State Withholding taxes taken out of her employee's checks.......when they filed for their refunds? Yep.....us, the tax payers of the state who do pay our taxes, including the extra taxes to make up for what tax dodgers don't pay.

Is this what the Tea Party Conservatives really support and stand for ?

Hey, Herman Cain, where are you when we need you?

Is this what Americans for Prosperity Endorse ?

I have to assume so based on the local Americans for Prosperity unwavering support for Ms Braddock.

Georgia Chamber of Commerce gives Braddock an A+ on legislative scorecard

Click here BUT GEORGIA HAS LITTLE OR NO ETHICS
Today, news has emerged in a release to the Paulding County Republican Examiner that the Georgia Chamber of Commerce handed State Representative Paulette Braddock of Paulding County’s District 19, an A+ on their 2012 Legislative Scorecard.

Braddock was noted to have been one of the few representatives to have been graded A+ on the 2012 Legislative Scorecard produced by the Georgia Chamber of Commerce. This is the second consecutive year that Rep. Braddock has scored an A or A+, the highest grade given by the Chamber.

I have to assume a couple of things having read this topic.

First, Xerox Corporation must not be a member of the Georgia Chamber of Commerce ... or at least not on their board of directors.

Second, dapanlap, the political forums are for national political topics.

Oh, and surepip ... I thought for a moment that I finally understood Paulett's preference for sales taxes ... at least for a moment. See, it seems she pays sales taxes - you know when she buys a new dress, a couple of pairs of new shoes, ...etc. which made me think the girl does like sales taxes. And then I remembered that a portion of the state taxes she's defaulted upon are state sales taxes she collected but didn't send on to the state by her business.

No, as I understand the p.com rules, local election topics, such as Braddock and her connections to Americans for Prosperity/Virginia Galloway are to go into the cafe or local countywide news.

But you are MORE than welcome to have it moved.

My point I think was made. She chooses to not pay her taxes, even when the issuing governmental agencies files liens.

Gingrich said, “I urge District 19 voters to come out strongly for Paulette Braddock in this important race. She is a tea party conservative who already has a strong track record of supporting conservative values, with consistent votes for personal responsibility and against bigger government and more bureaucracy.


Gingrich claims she represents the Tea Party ideals. I also have to laugh at the part about votes for "personal responsibility" :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Since she has taken office, Paulette cut taxes across the board for Georgians, protected the senior tax exemption, and helped bring jobs home to Paulding County with business-friendly legislation and tax initiatives. I’ve worked closely with Paulette and know that she has kept her promises to bring prosperity back to Paulding. There is no question in my mind that she is the right choice to represent District 19.”

The "tea party" does one thing mainly, to give narrow ideology voters a co-branded spot so that the votes go to the Republicans and not to a third party. Party bosses tolerate it because if a republican representative does not conform right down the line with the prescribed party positions, the bosses can threaten to run in an opposition "tea party" candidate and/or another republican candidate who WILL toe the party line. In any case, the Republican party gets absolute compliance by elected "representatives" (who actually only represent the interests of their party, not their constituency) who have an "R" next to their name. In this age of partisan political entrenchment good citizens HAVE to be willing to move away from those "representatives" or other elected officials who do NOT have the best interests of the people at heart and who put their own selfish interests and/or those of a PARTY above that of the "general welfare" in order to "form a more Perfect Union".

It's not surprising that non-compliance (a.k.a. "breaking the law") is the ultimate aim of tea-party types. They make no attempts to show their disdain for civilized, organized society. It's evident that the organization of society, on the whole, is not a function of private enterprise and the free markets. The organization function, getting us running water, paved streets with signs and lights, protecting us with police and fire services and educating our kids -- these are all proper functions of the government that the tea partiers consider --- over-reach.

Look at Nigeria and India if you want to see what "Under-Reach" does! It applies on the local level to the highest level of government. Not enough government is way-worse!!

I think India is a poor example. Somalia or even Afghanistan, both countries with weak central governments and strong 'war lords' effectively governing enclaves where their muscle is the local law, are better.

Other than that, yes, the re-emergence of a lords and nobility is the ultimate expression of conservatism which has, by nature, resisted all change wrought by the enlightenment.

To put the role they see for members of society in context, they want us all to know 'our place' and it really doesn't make any difference if we are native American, white, black, Latino or Asian the complaint is that 'those folks don't know their place.' (In that sense, with the remnants of the caste system still around in India, I can see your point (on reflection.) Still, the nation states I mentioned are better examples of a weak central government, strong war lord ordered society.

I don't do that sort of thing. As a concerned citizen, I even stand up for my fellow man's rights. I especially don't like public corruption, no matter where it is. I used to come to the defense of kids in my school, when they were being mistreated by another student, or group of students. But, back then I took my vigilante style a little to far. I put to severe of a hurt on a few boys.

But, I will still stand my ground with thief's, or just oppressive acting people. I try to get the law on my side, but that is not always possible, locally. Sometimes I have to go national. :drinks:

That is the reason I had George figured out, I am lucky though. I should have been more severely punished, back in my school days.

I like it that you finally realized that George was a vigilante, who killed an innocent man. I want carry a gun, today, even though I was taught how to use one, bu a WWII marksman. I'm not afraid of other gunmen, as much as I am myself. I am too quick to use a gun in a fist fight. I might want to take the easy way out. And, the easy way out is what George took.:drinks:

You people need to keep up.
The Tea Party in Georgia has been replaced by an organization called AFP. They now call the shots in Georgia on who is Republican enough.

They have put together and published a report card.
I will link you to the report card in a moment, but I wish to assist you in understanding the report card.
You will see a legend above the report, take the time to read the legend. The AFP has listed the housebills that their organization supports. The grades point to those that supported these bills an A+ means that your legislature voted the way AFP told them to on all of these bills. Your grade goes down if you voted no on any of them. You received an F if you did not vote the way AFP told you to on these bills.

You don't have to be a genius to figure out the Georgia branch of the AFP.

Americans for Prosperity (AFP) is an American political advocacy group headquartered in Arlington, VA. AFP’s stated mission is “educating citizens about economic policy and mobilizing citizens as advocates in the public policy process." The group played a major role in the Republicans’ 2010 takeover of the House of Representatives, and has been called “one of the most powerful conservative organizations in electoral politics.”

Did I miss understand the reason for creating and publishing a report card on these legislators?

I will be quite blunt with you some of these people are insinuating that the Tea party and Common cause are liberal and fighting the gift cap legislation.

The people refusing to sign it and insinuating that these are liberals behind it all have A's and A+'s on this report card.

It looks to me like the report card and the various articles pointing to it are saying this report card trumps everything when it comes to what these legislators say and do.

It is not just that they published the report card, it is the candidates publishing that their names are on it, on facebook and other online sources.

The people are speaking out that they want these gift caps for ethical reasons and it is being fought tooth and nail by some.

There are a lot of places to gather information on a candidate this report card is just a single source.

I am still watching for more names to pop up on the pledge and it has not happened yet.

The Tea party is not really coming out with a list I can find, but they are supporting the gift cap.

I am interested in your views on the report card and I will listen with an open mind.

Did I miss understand the reason for creating and publishing a report card on these legislators?

I will be quite blunt with you some of these people are insinuating that the Tea party and Common cause are liberal and fighting the gift cap legislation.

The people refusing to sign it and insinuating that these are liberals behind it all have A's and A+'s on this report card.

It looks to me like the report card and the various articles pointing to it are saying this report card trumps everything when it comes to what these legislators say and do.

It is not just that they published the report card, it is the candidates publishing that their names are on it, on facebook and other online sources.

AFP is only one organization and they can make whatever report they want to. There are numerous Tea Party groups now and they seem to differ in some ways. There are other groups who issue report cards such as the NRA. I have to respect the group to care what their report says. They are different LPPT and if you don't think AFP matters then don't worry about their report cards.

I wouldn't have brought it up if I didn't think they mattered. That is were my curiosity comes from. A lot of people are claiming they belong to the tea party or subscribe to the ideals but there is a lot of inconsistency. The question remains is the AFB the consistent standard now for Georgia Republicans because the tea party has become self described from group to group and even regionally. Do you check what a TP group is supporting against the AFP before supporting a cause?

I am not picking an argument I am asking about this honestly.

No, I don't check. AFP is about fiscal responsibility more than anything else if I understand their goals. I do want to know what the Tea Party groups stand for. One of them was started by the RTL group. Want to take a guess as to what their goals are? There are so many now I do check on some things about them.

I think abbreviation is a key word, LPPT. It's short, but not simple.. Conservatives are short in their definition of things, for a reason. All the other American people are fish in the sea of life, of which conservatives prey on. Their hooks are sharp, in order to stick fish for a good hold. They don't eat all the fish they catch, but they provide just enough water to keep them alive, for later meals, and for trading .

Their world is a fish fry., and heir motto is:LFAF, for Lets Fry Another Fish. :pardon:
