How You Can Help in Wisconsin !

Partnering with the national Tea Party Patriots, Northern Indiana Patriots (NIPats) is soliciting from its members a question which only each of you can individually answer. 

Is our electoral process and its integrity important to you?

If there was a way you could help fight the antagonist assault on the electoral process, would you?

Would you be willing to travel to Wisconsin for a day or two or longer and canvas conservatives in local neighborhoods to supply information on, why voting against the recall is  vital to the integrity of voting and stability of governance across the nation?  And what if the cost was minimal, would you take time out of your life to stand for our republic and the electoral process?  Tea Party Patriots have scholarships available to off-set the cost.

If traveling and canvassing is not possible, would you donate some time between now and June 5th to make calls to conservative homes, working from a script, to urge them to vote against the recall because the result of this election is larger than the state of Wisconsin?

Tea Party individuals across the nation are trekking to Wisconsin, some will be there for a single day and others have committed to being on the ground in Wisconsin until the June 5th election.  Together we can make a difference, together we can stand tall for the core principles which make this country great. 

Interested in helping out with boots on the ground or making calls?  Visit the Tea Party Patriots link here.

The link above can also be used if you want to donate any amount large or small to help off-set the cost for a patriot traveling.



Health Care Compact Response to Scare Tactics

The Health Care Compact, if passed by Indiana and other states and then passed by the U.S. Congress, will allow Indiana to assume responsibility for health care for Hoosiers. It will allow us to provide better, more affordable care – free of federal mandates and free of the more than 2,600 pages of federal rules and regulations that help to drive up health care costs, complicate coverage and restrict innovative ideas from being implemented in Indiana.

The Health Care Compact will:


URGENT ACTION NEEDED: Health Care Compact Options

Indiana Health Care Compact (HB1269) has already passed in the House.  This important legislation which allows Hoosiers better choices and a stronger voice in their health care options is currently stalled in the Senate Appropriations Committee.

Thursday morning, Feb. 23rd, we have a VERY IMPORTANT committee vote on self-governance in Indiana!

Members of the Appropriations Committee need to know that Hoosiers want self-governance in health care options, not layers of  bureaucratic control. This legislation needs to move out of committee and be allowed a vote in the Senate.

Please take a moment to contact as many members of the committee as possible, making sure to place something similar to , “Vote YES on Indiana Health Care Compact as a subject line.

Committee information is below:

Grassroots Making a Difference

Last weekend Northern Indiana Patriots (NIPATS) sent three representatives to the Tea Party Patriots Leadership Conference in Charleston, South Carolina.  The conference was intense and provided NIPATS additional tools for addressing efforts such as GOTV and our out of control government.  Below is a short story on how grassroots action has an impact in shaping the direction of our country.

During one of the Saturday sessions, National Coordinator Debbie Dooley from Georgia received some important news which vividly displays how grassroots makes a difference.  Saturday morning, she was notified that a Georgia federal representative was seriously considering co-sponsoring the Stop Internet Piracy Act  (SOPA).

For those unfamiliar with this legislation and its companion bill the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate, these bills allow overreaching Internet control by the federal government granting them the ability to shutdown Internet sites without judicial review or recourse.

Once Ms. Dooley became aware that this representative was about to co-sponsor the bill, she immediately sent out an email blast to the Tea Party Patriots in Georgia asking them to call, fax, tweet or email the representative to urge him not to support the legislation.  The clock ticked…

That afternoon around 1:30pm, Ms. Dooley received an email from the chief of staff of the GA representative asking  to “call off her patriots,” the Congressman had decided not to co-sponsor the bill.

Often we hear individuals say, “My one call doesn’t make a difference.”, but as you can see in this case it does.  Your one call which may only last a minute or two is amplified by all the other patriots making their one minute call to express their opinion. 

1+1+1+1 can have a dramatic impact in shaping the direction of the country.  Our Congressional representatives work for us. If we do not inform them of our position on various matters they will vote according to forces outside of their constituents’ beliefs.  Ms. Dooley commented that each battle to win Constitutional governance is not a victory, yet our voices do make a difference as shown above.

Take a minute or two and add your elected officials to your phone contact list, this allows for easy access when calling them. Use the handy link “Find My Representative” at the top of this website.

Making these calls are important.

By taking this action you help preserve the American ideal of a government of the people, by the people, for the people.


You may even want to inform the staffer that you are a Tea Party Patriot with Northern Indiana Patriots.  Let the Washington elite know we are here, watching and involved.

Health Care Compact Moves Forward

Representative Tim Neese (R-Elkhart)  introduced the Health Care Compact in the Indiana Statehouse. The legislation has now  passed out of the Public Health Committee in the House Chambers by a 7-3 vote and now goes to the House floor for a vote.

From an op-ed  authored by Representative Neese in the Indy Star online:

“The Health Care Compact is an interstate agreement that restores authority and funding for health-care regulations to states, making it more of a “local issue.” The compact has the potential to cut the federal deficit by nearly $3 trillion by 2021, if implemented in all 50 states. The Health Care Compact has already been introduced in 13 states since February 2011 and has been adopted in four states. It is being considered by state legislatures in more than 13 states, including Indiana.”  Read the entire piece at the link above.

There is no reason why 300 million Americans need a single health care program.  And there is certainly no reason why care for our health needs to be administered by Washington insiders. 

Bureaucratic cronyism has filtered into the massive layers of the Affordable Health Care Act.

To provide citizens better choices and a stronger voice, decisions should be made at the state level.

Call your state Representatives and urge their support of this bill.  The House call center is experiencing high call volume but do not allow this to prevent you from making the call.  Hoosiers this is the first step in allowing us to regain control of our health care options.  Use the Find My Representative tab at the top of this website for contact information.

A Thousand Days of Failure

Tonight President Obama delivers his fourth State of the Union address, today also marks  the 1,000th day the Democratic controlled Senate has failed to pass a federal budget.

The Heritage Foundation marks day 1,000 with a series of bullet points on the importance of a federal budget and why the Senate must be compelled to fulfill their Constitutional obligation.

 The last time the Senate passed a budget was on April 29, 2009.

  • Since that date, the federal government has spent $9.4 trillion, adding $4.1 trillion in debt.
  • As of January 20, the outstanding public debt stands at $15,240,174,635,409.
  • Interest payments on the debt are now more than $200 billion per year.
  • President Obama proposed a FY2012 budget last year, and the Senate voted it down 97–0. (And that budget was no prize—according to the Congressional Budget Office, that proposal never had an annual deficit of less than $748 billion, would double the national debt in 10 years and would see annual interest payments approach $1 trillion per year.)
  • The Senate rejected House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s (R–WI) budget by 57–40 in May 2011, with no Democrats voting for it.
  • In FY2011, Washington spent $3.6 trillion. Compare that to the last time the budget was balanced in 2001, when Washington spent $1.8 trillion ($2.1 trillion when you adjust for inflation).
  • Entitlement spending will more than double by 2050. That includes spending on Medicare, Medicaid and the Obamacare subsidy program, and Social Security. Total spending on federal health care programs will triple.
  • By 2050, the national debt is set to hit 344 percent of Gross Domestic Product.
  • Taxes paid per household have risen dramatically, hitting $18,400 in 2010 (compared with $11,295 in 1965). If the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts expire and more middle-class Americans are required to pay the alternative minimum tax (AMT), taxes will reach unprecedented levels.
  • Federal spending per household is skyrocketing. Since 1965, spending per household has grown by nearly 162 percent, from $11,431 in 1965 to $29,401 in 2010. From 2010 to 2021, it is projected to rise to $35,773, a 22 percent increase.
