COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina got a taste of two very different political acts Friday night. On one side was Vice President Joe Biden, a 35 year veteran of the Senate who showered praise on his old congressional colleagues and drew on his standard stump…

The South Carolina House of Representatives has passed a bill which makes it a criminal act to enforce Obamacare in the Palmetto State. It now goes to the …
COLUMBIA – Governor Nikki Haley today released the following statement on the Supreme Court of the United States’ ruling on the Arizona immigration law:
“If the federal government would do its job, the states wouldn’t have to – but that hasn’t happened. In South Carolina, we passed illegal immigration reform that told the rest of the country we’re a tolerant state but also a law-abiding state. That’s what this has been about for us – the rule of law – nothing more, nothing less.
“Today’s court ruling is in part good news for South Carolina law enforcement. Now, they can do their job and verify that those suspected of being here illegally are actually here legally. But the ruling also underscores the need for leadership in Washington that finally addresses illegal immigration reform, and we will continue to fight for that kind of leadership.”
South Carolina is one of the least unionized states in the nation, and Republican Governor Nikki Haley wants to make sure it stays that way. The absence of organized labor “is an economic development tool unlike any other,” she told lawmakers in her state of the state speech January….
Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina has written a solid OpEd in the Wall Street Journal about the pit falls that lay waiting for new Conservative members of Congress. Sen. DeMint points out what to look for and how to avoid this co-opt and corruption.
Funny how this is so similar to Satan and his strategy of tempting men and women to sin.
“Congratulations to all the tea party-backed candidates who overcame a determined, partisan opposition to win their elections. The next campaign begins today. Because you must now overcome determined party insiders if this nation is going to be spared from fiscal disaster.
Many of the people who will be welcoming the new class of Senate conservatives to Washington never wanted you here in the first place. The establishment is much more likely to try to buy off your votes than to buy into your limited-government philosophy.”
There has been positive developments on this story. Palmetto Patriot all the details here: Meeting with Columbia, SC Tea Party Chairman Allen Olson
Palmetto Patriot is dealing with some pathetic attacks from a Tea Party leader in Columbia, SC. It is important to acknowledge that this man, I won’t use his name he already has enough press, is a Yankee who came to the South, but apparently cannot stand Southerners. This is one of the leading problems with the Tea Party, they are always throwing those who could be allies under the bus so that they can claim they are not racists. How is advocating for your heritage racist in any way? He could not be more wrong than to attack Palmetto Patriot with this term.
When we first started this blog it was Palmetto Patriot who offered help and assistance. I have seen him do it for others. All the while, he tries to advocate on behalf of his state and his heritage. There is nothing even remotely racist about anything he does. It strikes me as pathetic and simple-minded to so casually throw around a destructive term simply because you lack the insight to debate the issues. The racist term has lost any meaning at this point. It simply means that you are a God-fearing, white person.
This would be a great point for me to recommend James Edwards’ book “Racism, Schmacism“; the perfect guide to learn how to deal with these thoughtless attacks. Any Yankees who live in the South and don’t like our heritage, feel free to move back North; I understand property is especially cheap in Detroit.
The one thing I find more disgusting than liberal Yankees moving to the South is our own kind betraying us either through a desire to fit in with the New York city crowd or through ignorance of our own heritage and history. I hope Southerners wake up because time is running out . Southerners also need to quit blindly voting for those who would undermine our freedoms and work against the well-being of the South.
