This is it, folks. Today is Republican primary election day in Tennessee for U.S. Senate; conservative Joe Carr verses RINO Lamar (Obama submissive) Alexander.
Patriot brother Michael Patrick Leahy of Beat Lamar PAC has lead the charge. He organized a small army of college age campaign workers who have done an amazing job; knocking on over 70,000 doors. Absolutely brilliant! Four of Micheal’s youth workers spoke at a press conference for Joe Carr about their experiences working on the campaign. They shared how Lamar kept running away from answering their questions. Please watch this video of these awesome youths (future conservative leaders): http://youtu.be/5esE48If0kM
Michael thanked my PAC, Conservative Campaign Committee. Michael said we came in like the cavalry. Please do not tell anyone because he likes to remain low key, behind the scenes. The decision to get into the Carr race was made by CCC’s brilliant Executive Director Joe Wierzbicki.
Monday, I sang/spoke at another Joe Carr rally in Maryville. Conservative Campaign Committee co-sponsored the rally. The audience was delighted upon hearing our CCC produced radio ad for Joe: http://bit.ly/1kabs9v
From running newspaper and radio ads, organizing volunteers, to make phone calls, numerous 7:30am sign waving excursions, driving to Chattanooga, Maryville for rallies and a press conference in Nashville, CCC has been in the thick of it along side Beat Lamar PAC.
We had the pleasure of meeting Ben Cunningham of Nashville Tea Party who has also been fighting for Joe Carr with us. By the way, for those who say the Tea Party is dead, Ben said his group is more fired up than ever; more sophisticated, more active and getting things done. Ben asked and I agreed to come back to further fire up Tennessee Tea Party patriots.
Patriot brother Dustin Stockton of Western Representation PAC sent out an email blast to his list supporting Joe Carr. Patriot brother Judson Phillips of Tea Party Nation worked for Joe Carr as well.
Folks, I LOVE it when we work together!
I am telling you all these details because it truly makes a difference to be boots on the ground, experiencing first hand the pulse of the race and the people involved.
At the rally Monday, while Mary discussed my music cues with the sound tech, I listened and observed the crowd. I detected their real frustration with the current state of our country and the lack of leadership coming out of Washington.
And yet, there was an enthusiastic buzz in the air about Joe Carr; a stand up guy who will make good on his promise to fight for less government regulations, lower taxes, restoring constitutional principles, respecting the sanctity of life, securing our borders and stopping Obama’s amnesty.
A local couple shared their frustration with me about the soaring cost of food; prices at their highest in U.S. history. With a Democrat in the White House, the MSM will never talk about it. The couple said they had a great hearty meal at a historic Knoxville restaurant for only $13.95 each. The lady said her slice of delicious meatloaf was really thick.
Speaking of the outrageous cost of food, Mary purchased veggies for our juicing machine that grinds up everything. One organic red bell pepper from a Tennessee major grocery store chain was $4; one pepper, folks.
I chatted with one of Micheal’s Beat Lamar workers, a black kid. He said he got involved for college credit, but soon discovered that he is a conservative.
Conservatism is in-sync with the human spirit, our instinct to be all we can be via right choices, education and hard work; values and behavior that makes us feel good about ourselves. This is why we must be bold and unapologetic when articulating conservatism to the low-info masses.
I performed a parody song at the Joe Carr rally titled “2014”, set to the music of “New York New York”. I always like to deliver a message of inspiration and hope in a fun way. Here is a link to view the video: http://bit.ly/1v6ifpE
For the grand finale of the rally, I invited all the vets to join me on stage while I sang “God Bless the USA”. It is a signature thing that I have done at over 400 Tea Party rallies; always a tearful favorite of audiences.
After the song, I began putting the microphone back on its stand. A tearful vet approached me. “You didn’t say it.” I was puzzled. Fighting back tears, he continued, “You didn’t say what I heard you say at a rally five years ago.”
I turned the microphone back on, “Hello, my fellow patriots! I am NOT an African American. I am Lloyd Marcus…AMERICAN!!!” The audience erupted with cheers and applause.
It is crunch time, folks. Please vote, join our Phone from Home team and support Joe Carr in anyway you can in these final hours. Email: PhoneFromHome@ConservativeCampaign.org
America needs Joe Carr in the U.S. Senate.
