Hillary Decimated by Palin in Today’s Poll
The media and party polls continue to
play each other off with this candidate or that one being beaten
by Hillary. When another candidate beats Hillary, there is the
proverbial declaration of “within the margin of error too close
to call”. This is a never ending theme to fill airtime. The Town
Criers ask you to consider their random poll. The Town Criers
are a Committee of the St. Augustine Tea Party and have been
conducting polls and interacting with the national audience in
historic St. Augustine for over four years. [http://www.examiner.com/review/a-look-at-town-crier-s-history]
The poll taken April 18, 2015 is actually the
second time the Criers pursued this question, “Who would you
vote for Sarah Palin or Hillary Clinton?” On January 31, 2015,
the Criers first asked the question. The purpose was to gauge
the effectiveness of the media’s distortion and ridicule of
Sarah Palin, and to test the effectiveness of the rejection of
Sarah Palin by both political parties. The results of that poll
were: 74% Palin, 6% Clinton and 20% neither.
Now that Hillary Clinton has announced her candidacy for
president, the question was asked again. The reader should bear
in mind that this is not an opinion poll strictly from St.
Augustine residents. Very few people on St. George Street, on
any one day are from the city. St. George Street is populated by
people from every state in the union, and many countries of the
world. The poll was random and face-to-face. Only American
citizens of voting age were allowed to participate.
Palin Wins Hands Down

The “Big Red Sign” pictured above Always Wins!
According to the Tea
Party, the Communists in America have been hiding under
the names Liberal, Progressive, Marxist, and Socialist
since the 1920’s. For practical purposes the Democratic
Party’s leadership is Communist. The GOP’s leadership is
always looking to what other people think and doing what
other people say. This “rudderless” party is adrift.
They are like “fellow travelers” in the cold war sense.
The Council on Foreign Relations operatives in both
parties are leading this country to a New World Order.
In 2009 and 2010, it was the Tea Party that stopped
their total takeover.
“No one saw the Tea Party coming. Now, it is alive in
the people. So The Big Red Sign always wins,” a Tea
Party spokesman said. Continuing, “When the sign is
exposed to the public, it either awakens one, or gives
assurance to others that their belief is not alone. In
the minority cases it infuriates those who wish to
remain in hiding.” Today this reporter witnessed an
individual who said, “That sign it infuriates me!” The
response from the Town Crier was, “Thank you, that’s
what the sign is intended to do.” The majority of people
now understand truth behind the sign. Others are
awakened. America’s enemies are infuriated because for
100 years they have been able to hide. The Tea Party’s
job is to bring truth, into a world of deception and
corruption. Truth always wins.
“I had no idea that
the Town Crier Committee Report would be read around the
Country when I first wrote about the Tea Party’s
problems with the local Republican activists here in
North East Florida. Little did I know that the GOP had a
co-op or destroy plan in store for the Tea Party
movement as a whole.
We were naďve back
then. We thought the GOP was just like us, patriots.
But, sadly, we learned they were party loyalist
first. They marched
to the tune of the party bosses right or wrong, and not
to the values of the Constitution.
Both the Obama’s IRS
gangsters and the GOP attacked the Tea Party movement
and tried to destroy us and declare us dead. But lo and
behold! The new world of the “Internet Media” has sprung
up. Despite the attacks of the gangsters in the White
House and their buddies in the GOP, we are getting the
message out; Obama is a Communist and a Muslim
sympathizer. We are still here and growing our base.
Look at all the young people joining our ranks."

Many conservatives support the idea of consumption taxes, sales
taxes and user fees. It is a better way to raise revenue as it
involves more individuals. They also believe that such taxes
would have an ability to improve the economy only if they
replaced the existing taxes such as property and income taxes.
Sales taxes are usually promoted on the basis of promising that
the funds will be used for a popular purpose. In neighboring
Putnam County, for example, when the sales tax was voted in the
politicians promised that the money would be used to improve
roads. Few roads were improved and now the revenue is being used
to pay interest. When asked by a Tea Party member if the
rollback feature could be changed after the sales tax was in
place, Mr. Smith indicated that it could. Commissioner Smith, a
very gifted speaker, made a great presentation. However, the
distrust of the current Board of Commissioners and future boards
failed to convince many at the Tea Party meeting.
Commissioner Smith Meets his Socialist WorldOMG...Commissioner
Jeb Smith, himself, experienced the insanity of St.
bureaucrats gone bonkers.
exasperation of Commissioner Smith in recalling his own
experience, as Commissioner, of being excluded from the
meeting that following a request to lower
doors on a public building, was a wonder to behold. Mr.
Smith, speaking at the St. Augustine Tea Party, had a
controlled, public catharsis as he relived what all of
us have experienced in dealing with the dunderheads at
the county every day. So, the request to "lower the
doors" on a building that Mr. Smith had used for 20
years for 4H events, snowballed into a meeting of
lawyers, code enforcers, and bureaucrats that concluded
in a proposal to spend $3,000,000 on a new facility.
What's new? . The conclusion of the
matter is , St. John County employees have an
“Adversarial Attitude” in dealing with the public.
Instead of being helpful, the culture is to say,
"No.” It is all about them and not the public. Welcome
to the Socialist World, Mr. Smith.
Who's really in charge?
It takes no more than a casual encounter to realize that
it is the County administrator , Michael Wanchick, and
his army of bureaucrats. The battle cry, “Quality of
Life”, rings through the halls of county government.
“Quality of life” together with “Sustainability”,
clearly marks the direction of the Socialist bent. The
public is fed up with the growth in government. They
don't want it at the state or local level and they are
about to rebel at the federal level.
Put Mr. Wanchick in his place, Mr. Commissioner!

Commissioner Jeb Smith,
Sales-tax Issue and the Tea Party The drama
for the evening at the St. Augustine Tea Party meeting
on April 14, 2015, was Commissioner Smith’s defense of
his vote to study a sales tax increase in St. Johns
Mr. Smith's reason for
continuing the 'study' was to bring to light the fact
that farmers and businesses in his rural district are
getting hammered with absurd ad valorem tax increases,
yearly. He claimed that his farmer father's tax increase
was 21% this year. (A maximum increase for home owners
is 3%). Commissioner Smith's support for the
'study' was to find a way to equalize the tax burden.
Mr. Smith revealed that he got lots of angry
phone calls from constituents who were not pleased with
his voting for a sale-tax 'study’. Had Commissioner
Smith voted "No" on February 17th, on the second vote,
it would have killed the sales tax effort.
Mr. Smith championed the idea of imposing a sales tax
increase in St. Johns County if the revenue was used for
rollback ad valorem taxes. That way, more people would
be carrying the tax burden. This concept is not entirely
rejected by fiscal conservatives.
It is a Spending issue, not a
Of course, the Tea Party position is that they are “Taxed
Enough Already”. Frank Bailey, a new Tea Party member, recently
said after listening to a long, complicated presentation by
Denver Cook about the County’s budget, “Sounds to me like you
can solve the problem, just by cutting every department 10%. Any
business knows how to do this without disrupting activities and
the County can learn how
to do this as well.” The County has a spending problem and all
the talk about a sales tax, being pushed by the County
Administrator, is a diversion from recognizing the real
