Our 12 noon luncheon for Wednesday, August 31st will be held at
Italiano’s restaurant, 4801 North Lincoln in OKC. Our main speaker
this week will be a lady from Washington D.C. by the name of Lea
Carawan. Lea is the Executive Director of the Congressional Prayer
Caucus Foundation. Not only will she inform us of the activities of
the foundation, but she will also inform us of the possible activities
in the states.

In addition, I will also try to have a speaker from California at our
meeting to tell us about the recent raid on the Rawsom Food Co-
operative by government agents in a paramilitary operation. Not only
did the government agents confiscate the food inventories of the co-
op, they also confiscated their financial resources. Many Americans
are blindly passing through life unconscious of things going on around
them. They don’t realize that quite a few of the finest, liberty
loving Americans live their lives to varying degrees, off the “grid”
so to speak. It seems that drinking raw milk and buying naturally
grown foods that are produced like my grandmother used to do, is
totally unacceptable to today’s food fascists who want to control
every aspect of our lives.


Following this year’s legislative session I have had the desire to
pull back to some degree from the pace of activism and take care of
some projects around my home and small farm. Some of these projects I
have neglected for the past 7 years because of my very busy schedule.
I have had a modicum of success in pulling back, but am now up against
some deadlines before we get to winter. The storm that came through 3
weeks ago which totaled my barn as well as took down trees and broke
many branches just added to the chores to be done. Therefore, at least
through the end of September, I will put the agenda for each week’s
meeting in the e-mails and forego “MOST” of the extra announcements
and commentary. Thanks for understanding.

I look forward to seeing everyone this Wednesday.

I must keep this short. Once I got my tractor and chain saw out of the
repair shop I have been very busy cleaning up storm debris.

Our 12 noon luncheon for Wednesday, August 24th will be held at
Italiano’s restaurant, 4801 North Lincoln in OKC. Last January we had
Sarah ****** scheduled to speak and it turned out to be a day in which
we had a snow storm. We had to change locations at the last minute as
our restaurant was closed and therefore only a small crowd was able to
attend. Sarah is doing missionary work in China with a focus on pro-
life efforts. Sarah has just recently returned from China since she
was with us in January. Also speaking will be a man that has been
doing kind of a free lance missionary work in China for several years.
I am not going to use his name so as to not cause him trouble in the


* TUESDAY EVENING - ADA AREA - The Ada/Seminole area tea party
will have their monthly meeting tonight, 6:00 p.m. in the Industrial
Arts Classroom on the campus of the Career Tech Center in Ada.
Speaking tonight will be Oklahoma’s Attorney General, Scott Pruitt and
Oklahoma State Representative Sally Kern. These meetings are well
attended and I urge folks within a 50 miles radius to attend if at all

* WEDNESDAY EVENING - STATE CAPITOL - The Stand with Israel event
will occur this Wednesday on the South steps of the State Capitol,
starting at 7:00 p.m. This is in conjunction with Glen Beck’s Stand
for Courage event going on in Jerusalem this week. Please bring your
lawn chair. The organizers have set up a big screen measuring 137
inches for viewing. There will be several elected officials speaking
at the event.

This past Thursday, I attended a briefing with a person from the
Israeli office in Houston. It looks like the Palestinians will go to
the U.N. General Assembly on September 20th where it is believed they
will have enough votes to force the creation of a new nation for the
so called “Palestinians” by carving up the tiny nation of Israel.
Please remember, in the Middle East area, Israel posses about 1% of
the land mass, with the Arabs already possessing the other 99 percent.
Should the U.N. resolution go forward, things could get really dicey
in Israel as this will not be a negotiated agreement and no boundaries
are currently defined in the motion which is expected to be presented.
Israel’s back is against the sea and they can’t afford to give up any
more as long as the people wanting to take more of their land have as
their desire to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.

I know of one church in Guthrie that is also participating in the Glen
Beck event. It is Community Church, located on the Northwest corner of
the interchange of I-35 and Seward Road, just South of Guthrie. They
are starting their meeting with some preliminaries at 6:00 p.m.

* THURSDAY EVENING - WARR ACRES - Jenni White, founder of Restore
Oklahoma Public Information (ROPE), will present her information about
the dangers of the Core Curriculum Standards during the Change a
Nation for Christ meeting this Thursday at Victory Church in Warr
Acres. The meeting will be held in the South Building and starts at
7:00 p.m. The church is located at approximately 43rd and North
MacArthur in Warr Acres.

* SATURDAY MORNING - OKC - The Republican State Committee is
meeting this Saturday morning, 10:00 a.m., on the campus of Mid
America Christian University, 3500 S.W. 119th street. State Chairman
Matt Pinnell is proposing a couple of rule changes. It is always a
challenge to get a Quorum present to change a rule as the state
committee is a very large body. It consists of the County Chairman,
Vice-Chairman, the State Committee Man and the State Committee Woman
from each county as well as every Republican state and federal

Many times the outlaying counties are not represented or are
underrepresented. I would urge folks that are delegates to attend. I
also urge those reading this e-mail to contact your Republican
representatives to see if they plan to attend and if not, ask them for
their proxy so you can attend in their absence. If you don’t know the
contact information for your county officials, call the Republican
State Headquarters for that information (405) 528-3501.

I look forward to seeing everyone this Wednesday.

Our 12 noon luncheon for Wednesday, August 17th will be held at
Italiano’s restaurant, 4801 North Lincoln in OKC. Our speakers this
week will be Bill Shappard and James Davenport of Sooner Polling. They
will explain the ins and outs of polling, how it is done, who pays for
it, how the wording is determined and how close to accurate polls
might happen to be. You might be surprised to know how a business or
organization could become part of a bundle for a poll and it not cost
all that much to get a read on the public.


* TUESDAY - OKC AREA - Congressman James Lankford will hold a
town hall meeting tonight at the Francis Tuttle Technology Center
(Portland Campus) 3500 NW 150th street in OKC, from 6 until 7:30 p.m.

* TUESDAY - TULSA AREA - U.S. Senator Tom Coburn will hold a town
hall meeting tonight at 6:00 p.m. The location is the Tulsa Community
College - Southeast Campus in the Van Trease Performing Arts Center
for Education, 10300 East 81st street.

* THURSDAY - SHAWNEE AREA - Congressman James Lankford will hold
a town hall meeting at the CPN Cultural Heritage Center in the North
Reunion Hall, 1702 South Gordon Cooper Drive in Shawnee from 6 to 7:30

* THURSDAY - LAWTON AREA - Congressman Tom Cole will host a town
hall meeting, 5:30 p.m. in the CETES Center on the campus of Cameron

* We are just a little over a week away from the Stand with Israel
rally to be held at the State Capitol in OKC on Wednesday, August 24th
from 7 until 10 p.m. I believe this will be a live satellite feed from
Jerusalem in conjunction with Glenn Beck’s Restoring Courage event.

This past Wednesday, Dr. Scott Carroll presented one of the most
interesting and compelling programs we have ever had at an OCPAC
meeting. Perhaps I am just a sucker for show and tell, but the 10 or
so Biblical artifacts Mr. Carroll brought to the meeting were
fascinating, not to mention they were valued in the millions of

Included was the oldest known parchment of the writings of the Apostle
of Paul. It was part of the 10th chapter of the book of First
Corinthians. Dr. Carroll brought a tablet, about the size and shape of
a calzone sandwich which looked to be fired in a kiln or cured in the
sun. When looked upon at the correct angle, it had deep inscriptions
waiting to be translated to a modern language. The Green’s have the
largest number of these tablets of any collection in the world, many
still waiting to be deciphered. Another artifact involved monks
writing on a material and then at a later date writing over the top of
the original. Through precise technology the wording from each of the
time periods can be separated and clearly understood. Another was a
manuscript recently purchased at a world famous auction. The wording
couldn’t be deciphered with the human eye. However, when originally
written, the ink pen left ridges on the parchment. Through technology,
the ridges can be seen, bringing about the complete content of these
ancient manuscripts.

While a relationship with Jesus the Christ must be based on belief,
trust and faith, Dr. Carroll’s whole life work is about data and the
story it tells. Our good friend Dr. Yeagley was present and asked a
piercing question. Many may not know one of Dr. Yeagley’s 5 degrees is
from the school of divinity at Yale University. Dr. Yeagley’s
perspective was that many of the professors at Yale use the data to
destroy the faith of the students and only by the grace of God did he
survive those studies. Dr. Carroll defended the data by suggesting the
data is not the problem, but rather the misuse of data, through
misinterpretation rather than letting it say what it says. Dr.
Carroll’s perspective was that not only do the thousands of Biblical
artifacts verify and reinforce the veracity of the Bible, but also
many non Christian contemporaries add to the Bible’s veracity through
their historical accounts.

If you weren’t able to attend, the much larger collection will be on
display until October 16th at which time it will move to another city,
perhaps to never again return to OKC. The Greens have now put together
the largest collection of Biblical Artifacts in the world and its
value is nearing priceless. It has such rare artifacts, that Dr.
Carroll suggested we will see charter planes loaded with Hebrew
scholars coming to OKC to study some of the materials in the
collection. The collection will eventually have a permanent home in
Washington D.C. where an expected 2 million people a year will view
it. It is called “Passages” and is on display seven days a week at the
Oklahoma City Art Museum in downtown OKC. I hope to see it within the
next couple of weeks. I urge folks not to miss this special event
while it is in Oklahoma.


On August 5th a liberal blog released their list of the 20 most
dangerous people in America. To view it, log on to www.thechristianleft.org.
They called it “The Enemies Within: The 20 Most Dangerous
Conservatives and their Organizations.” As a point of interest, we
have had 3 of these “dangerous” folks speak at OCPAC over the years,
one of whom very recently. As a trivia question, can you pick out the
three? Send me their names at, charliemeadows7@gmail.com. Following
is their list in order.

1) Roger Ailes, President of Fox News.
2) The Koch Brothers, of Koch Industries of Wichita.
3) Dick Army of Freedom Works.
4) Tom Donohue, President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
5) Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council.
6) Pat Robertson, founder of the Christian Coalition.
7) Edwin Feulner, President of the Heritage Foundation.
8) Art Thompson, CEO of the John Birch Society.
9) Rupert Murdock of News Corp.
10) Grover Norquist, Americans for Tax Reform.
11) David Bossie, of Citizens United.
12) Tim LaHaye & Ken Cribb of Council for National Policy.
13) Steve J. Law of American Crossroads.
14) James Dobson of Family Talk Radio.
15) Phyllis Schlafly, founder of Eagle Forum.
16) David Keene of the American Conservative Union.
17) Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association.
18) David Barton of Wallbuilders Ministries.
19) Noble Ellington of the American Legislative Exchange Council
20) Edward Crane of the Cato Institute.


If you listen to President Obama, other elected Democrats or liberal
callers on talk radio, one can quickly understand their agenda is for
the “rich” or wealthy to pay more in taxes, or in other words, “their
fair share”. Conservatives are quick to point out that the wealthy
already pay their fair share and usually quote some numbers about the
wealthiest 10 percent of income earners already paying 70 percent of
all taxes. My numbers may be off, but for the point I want to make
they don’t have to be exact.

To those less than wealthy liberals, the ones who have been
indoctrinated to hate the rich and envy their wealth, it doesn’t
matter that the wealthy already pay a greater share of taxes than the
rest of Americans. All they can see through their hate filled world
view is that the wealthy have more than they do and therefore could
and should pay more.

So my question is, they certainly could pay more, so why wouldn’t that
be fair? What I am about to say is really for Christians for the most
part. As a Christian, who is it that determines right from wrong? Who
is it that determines what is fair? Is it not our Heavenly Father
through His Word? Of course it is and that is why we have a struggle
today between competing world views. There are several competing world
views, but for this discussion, lets just say the main competition in
America is between a Judeo/Christian world view and a secularist or
humanist world view.

The secular world view believes in a heavy progressive tax burden. In
other words, the more a person has, or more particularly makes, the
more as a percentage that person should have to pay. That idea, at
least in a modern context, comes from the writings of Karl Marx and
can be found as plank #2 of the Communist Manifesto.

Over the years, I can’t tell you how many Oklahoma lawmakers and
candidates have espoused the idea of the wealthy paying more. Even
U.S. Senator Tom Coburn’s “back to black” manifesto, a proposal for
America to quit its spending in the red and get back into the black
has many elements of the wealthy paying more through “means testing”.

What I want to do is to challenge Christians to think Biblically. To
develop a Biblical world view and turn from a Marxist or secularist
world view. God’s covenant with Israel (Old Testament) was that his
people should pay 10% of their first fruits (a tithe) to take care of
the needs and duties of the nation of Israel.

I don’t want to get into an argument as to whether or not the tithe
applies to Christianity as some believe it does and some otherwise.
However, my understanding of God’s word is that it is an excellent
example to follow and I would suggest Christians should be willing to
give their all in their service to the Lord Jesus (obviously God
provides for us, usually through our labors, the money we need for our
necessities and more than just the necessities). The heart of a true
Christian should lead us to be giving individuals. There are some
people that God simply gives an ability to generate great wealth. He
instructs those people to be generous.

To better understand this lets look at the earnings of three different
people though first a Christian world view and then through the
Marxist world view. From the perspective of 10% of a persons earnings,
person number 1 will make $1,000 per month and pay $100 dollars in
taxes, thus leaving that person $900 to live on. Person number 2 will
make $10,000 per month and will pay $1,000 in taxes leaving him $9,000
to live on. Person number 3 will make $100,000 per month and will pay
$10,000 in taxes, leaving that person $90,000 to live on. This would
be fair in the Eyes of God as He equates fairness as to how the rules
are applied. Fairness in the eyes of God is not based on the effect
upon a person or the need of a person.

It should not take a rocket scientist to realize that person number 2
will have more opportunities than number 1 and person number 3 will
have more opportunities the persons number 1 or 2. There is nothing
wrong with this system, it is not evil, it is fair.

Now lets look at the possible outcomes for these 3 persons through the
eyes of the Marxist world view. Most likely person number 1 will be
exempt from paying any taxes and thus have their entire $1,000 to live
on. Person number 2 will probably have to pay a 30% tax rate and thus
pay $3,000 in taxes leaving $7,000 per month to live on. Now for the
really heavy weight of a progressive income tax. Person number 3 will
have to pay 80%, (past tax rates have actually been higher than this,
though loop holes allowed for high income earners to keep more of
their money) thus having to pay $80,000 a month in taxes and thus
leaving them $20,000 per month to live on.

Today, liberals say it is not fair for person number 3 to keep $20,000
each month when person number 1 only has $1,000 to keep and spend.
Therefore, they want to take even more (they are already taking
$80,000 each month) of person number 3’s earnings from him and then re-
distribute (give) even more of person number 3’s earnings to person
number 1.

What liberals don’t realize is that the wealthy do one or two things
with their wealth. They either spend it or invest it (even putting it
in a bank becomes the capital others borrow to use for their needs,
desires or business financing). When a wealthy person builds a 3
million dollar home and has to pay a $30,000 per month mortgage, it
provides work for contractors who make $10,000 per month (person
number 2) who in turn provide jobs for craftsmen who make $5,000 per
month right on down to person number 1 (an apprentice to the
craftsman) who makes $1,000 per month.

When person number 3 realizes people hate him for his success and want
to take ever larger amounts from him, at some point in time he may
decide to quietly tell them to “go to hell”. He might do this in
several different ways. He might just slowly wind his business down or
simply close it down and live on his savings. Perhaps he might move it
to another country where he will be treated better. He may sell the
business and move to a different country taking his capital with him.
The point is, wealthy people have the resources to make these
decisions and carry them out.

Rather than hating the successful, God’s Word tells us to mourn with
those who mourn and rejoice with those who rejoice. If people inherit
or earn their wealth honorably, then we should rejoice at their
success, not hate or become envious of them.

Perhaps the most important Biblical perspective on this issue is found
in the parable of the talents, found in the 25th chapter of Matthew.
The parable explains that a certain Lord of some servants was going on
a journey and summoned his servants. He gave 5 talents to one servant
with the most skills, 2 talents to another servant and 1 talent to his
servant with the least skills. After the Master had been gone a long
time he returned to settle with his servants. The one he had given 5
talents to had put them to work and produced 5 more talents. The
Master told him good and well done faithful servant and because of
your faithfulness I will make you a ruler over many things. The one He
had given 2 talents to had put them to work and produced 2 more,
another good and well done from the Master and he put this servant in
charge of many things. The servant he had given 1 talent to was
paralyzed with fear and as such took his talent and buried it in the
ground. When he tried to return his talent to his Master, he was told
by his Master that he was wicked and lazy and should have at least put
it in the bank to draw interest. The Master then called for servants
to take the one talent away from this wicked servant and give it to
the servant who had 10 talents. Then the Master fired the servant and
drove him off his property and into the wilderness.

May I suggest that the talents represent the giftings and capabilities
that God puts in every man. We do not all have the same level of
talents, some more and some less. The teaching of the parable is that
God rewards faithfulness and productivity and will never ask a person
to produce more than he has the talent to produce. In addition, the
parable also teaches that God actually punishes those who are
unproductive and unfaithful.

If you want to know what is wrong with America from an economic
standpoint, you have to look no farther than this parable. Since we
started the welfare state in the 1930s, we have turned God’s economic
principles upside down. Using the Karl Marx model of a heavy graduated
income tax, the more productive a person the more we punish them by
taking ever more of the fruit of their productivity. We then take a
productive person’s wealth and give it to the un-productive.

America has been able to get away with this violation of God’s
economic principles for a long time, but the Master is returning to
America and is about to set things in order. Because America has
violated these Biblical principles for such a long time, we have
created a large class of people who are of weak character, as well as
being sniveling, whiny butt, dependents. As the welfare state begins
to shut down, as it must, they will scream and clamor. Some will turn
to violence, much like we see in certain places in Europe.

America is not exempt from violence as we are now beginning to see
flash mobs in places like Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco and at
the Wisconsin state fair. Whether these flash mobs are motivated by
racial hatred or wealth envy or both, it doesn’t really matter. What
we are beginning to see is the predictable fruit of a welfare state
coming to an end. The turbulence in the economy and the decline of
America has more to do than anyone might think with our violating the
simple principles set forth in the parable of the talents.

Violating these principles is the number one reason we are over 14
trillion in debt, with untold trillions in unfunded liabilities for
the future. It is why America is bankrupt. Though it is possible to
turn this around, it is not likely given so many of our citizens have
been indoctrinated through the government schools to value socialism
and ignore God and His principles.

America needs another great awakening, but that will only come about
when its pastors, priests and rabbis understand these truths and get
the courage to teach them to their congregations. This will be
difficult as so many churches today have become seeker friendly
churches, feeding their congregations a pink, puff and piffle marsh
mellow diet rather than the solid truths that will mature people. The
clergy is failing to teach people to become like the faithful servants
in the parable of the talents. We need to pray that God will stir the
hearts of the pastors to be filled with courage and pray that the
people will want to know the reality of the Master and His ways.

I look forward to seeing everyone this Wednesday.

Before I get to our agenda, please let me say I am not trying to be
unfriendly, but I don’t sign up to be friends on Linkiden or other
similar offers. I get multiple invitations daily, which is simply too
time consuming for me to fill out the responses. Thanks for

Our 12 noon luncheon for Wednesday, August 3rd will be held at
Italiano’s restaurant, 4801 North Lincoln in OKC. Our first speaker
will be Tracey Montgomery, Oklahoma State Coordinator for www.parentalrights.org.
She will explain this organizations belief in the necessity of a
amendment to the U.S. Constitution to protect the rights of parents in
regard to their own children.

Our main speaker this Wednesday will be Jenni White, as she continues
her work to alert Oklahomans about the dangers of Federal intervention
into Education. Jennie will explain the pitfalls of the “Core
Curriculum Standards” and why we don’t want to be selected into the
federal government’s “Race To The Top” program. Try to arrive early as
I will start our program at 12 sharp as we have a lot to cover this


I am disappointed in Oklahoma’s four Republican U.S. Representatives
for voting for the final version of the budget reform/debt ceiling
legislation. I am not all that surprised by Cole, Lucas and Sullivan
as they have a long track record of getting in line with leadership. I
had hoped for more out of Lankford, but it is what it is.

If the legislation passed was all that was out there, I might have
voted for it as it is a little better than what we have now. However,
there is the Connie Mack (R-Florida) plan which is far better and very
sellable to the public. A plan that doesn’t allow spending to rise
above 2011 levels and then cuts across the board (if Congress can’t
prioritize a 1% cut) 1% each year for 8 years to achieve a balanced

That was a plan worth supporting and then refusing to raise the debt
ceiling should the Democrats refuse to pass it in the Senate. Should
the Democrats refuse, there would be a nation wide noticeable hit to
programs and paychecks, but at least then the public would really
concentrate on what is going on. At that time all Republicans should
have a unified voice, explaining the simple, cut one penny out of
every dollar, plan and urge Americans to contact the Democrats to
demand they support the plan!

The time to start correcting our past miss deeds, which will be
painful, is now. At least Oklahoma has two experienced conservatives
in our Congressional delegation that understand the pitiful value in
the inferior plan that will be passed and as such will vote against it
in the Senate. Senators Inhofe and Coburn deserve a huge thanks from
the citizens of Oklahoma.


State Senator Jim Reynolds was elected as the Cleveland County
Treasurer last November, but didn’t take office until July 1st. His
vacated seat requires a special election for the current area which is
much of Del City and a good part of South OKC. The election will be
one week from today, on Tuesday, August 9th.

Our by-laws do not allow OCPAC to get involved in this primary because
it is not considered a “safe” Republican seat. However, the eventual
winner of the Republican primary will be eligible to appear before our
members and they will vote to determine if we support that candidate.

As a point of interest, I was reading the Demokie web site and noticed
their take on this race. The administrator of the web-site had
obtained campaign literature from each of the 2 Republican candidates
and posted that literature on the web-site for anyone to read. This is
what “STAMP THE ROOSTER” had to say about one of the Republican
candidates: “Sounds like this Theresa Nelson would make a fine
Democrat.” They don’t get things right very often on this web-site,
but this time I have to agree with Stamp The Rooster as Theresa Nelson
is anything but a conservative Republican.

Someone on the web-site posted that the other Republican candidate,
Greg Childers was the establishment candidate. They couldn’t be
further from wrong. The establishment didn’t field a candidate as they
thought State Representative Paul Wesselhoft would be the easy winner
in the race and keep the seat for the Republicans. However, Paul filed
for office and then dropped out of the race before the candidates were

State Senator Ralph Shortey brought Mr. Childers to an OCPAC meeting a
few weeks back. Anyone who knows anything about the Republican party
knows that Ralph Shortey is anything but an establishment Republican
and will only support candidates that will not simply bow down to the
establishment. In my opinion, Greg Childers is by far the more
conservative candidate. That is just my opinion and is not an official
endorsement from OCPAC.


* EDMOND AREA - Attorney Don Powers, considered a Constitutional
expert, has been writing a weekly column for about a year now in the
Edmond Sun. He has moved his column over to the Edmond Life and
Leisure Newspaper which may be obtained at many businesses in Edmond.
Pick up a paper and check out his columns as they are very
informative. His recent column on the “general welfare” clause as well
as many of his columns on State sovereignty and the 10th amendment
were excellent. Don also teaches classes on the Constitution all over
the metro area.

* EDMOND AREA - Just a heads up, on Tuesday, August 9th there will
be a town hall meeting, 7:00 p.m. at the Edmond Community Center, 28
East Main. There are a large group of citizens who would like to see
Edmond governed locally and wean their community off the influences of
the United Nations, the Obama administration’s interferences in
Education and the possible problems with the new President at UCO. It
seems the new President is a former employee of the United Nations,
who worked to create a Palestinian State. He also has expressed his
admiration for the organization CAIR (Center for American and Islamic
Relations). It turns out that CAIR got lucky when the Obama
administration took over as Eric Holder determined not to prosecute
the other conspirators (CAIR) in the Holy Lands Foundation trial as
members of that organization were convicted of supporting terrorism
through Hamas.

* STATE CAPITOL - AUGUST 24TH - In conjunction with Glen Beck’s
event in Israel, a group in Oklahoma will have a STAND with ISRAEL
rally at the State Capitol from 7 until 10:00 p.m.. For more
information log on to www.oklahomaunited.com.


Sources have told me Boren decided to announce he would not run for re-
election so he could be appointed to the Presidency of Northeastern
State University at Tahlequah. If true, I would further speculate his
desire for that position to gain enough experience to be appointed as
President of the University of Oklahoma once daddy Boren decides to
retire. Further speculation is that Dan Boren will resign his
Congressional seat when he is picked as President which may then
require a special election to fill his vacated seat.

There are several Republicans already working in that race. State
Representative George Faught was the first to announce. Former State
Representative Wayne Pettigrew of Edmond is campaigning and Mr.
Mullins of Mullins Plumbing is also in the race. I believe he is the
first to file his papers with the Federal Election Commission. With a
hundred thousand of his own money to go along with a hundred thousand
he has raised from contributors he has already raised twice the amount
Dr. Charles Thompson was able to amass for his bid in 2010.

Dr. Thompson may also join the race as well as others. If a special
election does occur and the time frame is shortened, a candidate with
adequate finances usually has an advantage. Regardless, all the
Republican candidates will have an opportunity to appear at an OCPAC
meeting. Our dues paying members will vote to endorse the best
candidate if that can be determined.


At the end of July we had 221 dues paying members and have raised over
$18,000. Our old record for a non election year was 217 dues paying
members. The largest number of members come from OKC, with Edmond in
second place. However, OCPAC is truly a statewide organization with
dues paying members spread out all over the state.

I thought I would list other communities in Oklahoma with dues paying
members, in no particular order: Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Broken Bow,
Piedmont, Nichols Hills, Owasso, Norman, Ponca City, Newalla, Mustang,
Yukon, Muskogee, Jones, Guthrie, Purcell, Tuttle, Choctaw, Midwest
City, Newkirk, Bristow, Cleveland, Lawton, Alva, Duncan, Konawa,
Moore, Tecumseh, Shawnee, Weatherford, Shawnee, Meridian, Seminole,
Hooker, Harrah and Blanchard. In addition, we have at least one dues
paying member from each of the following states, Texas, Michigan,
Virginia, Mississippi, and Wyoming.

Truth is, many of these members in out laying areas may never or
seldom ever be able to attend one of our meetings. However, they have
caught the vision of what we are trying to do by supporting good
candidates from anyplace in the state as well as trying to hold them
accountable once they are elected. They know their dues provide the
funds for our war chest to get the job done.

If you have considered joining OCPAC, but just haven’t done so as yet,
please consider doing so now. Help us make Oklahoma the most
conservative state in the nation. Instructions on how to join will
follow my sign off. I look forward to seeing everyone this Wednesday.
