Beat Lamar!: Joe Carr Rally Report
Little House on Unaka | September 29, 2013 | don-o

Posted on 09/29/2013 5:58:36 AM PDT by don-o

Yesterday, I attended the fifth of five statewide rallies hosted by Tea Party and other groups who had an opportunity to vet candidates for a challenge to Lamar! in next year’s primary.

I had solicited FReeper input here,

Beat Lamar! : Help Me Vet Joe Carr

Rather than give a detailed report, I will say that my impression is that Joe would win the support of 99.99% of us. Almost all on the issues suggested to me in the thread were covered. If there are any questions, I would try to answer them. I did not record or video, since I was pressed into service at the swag table.

There will be an official announcement from The Real Conservatives The Conservative National Commitee concerning endorsement later today or tomorrow. They have a state of the art ground game plan that is already underway.

Personally, I am excited with the real prospect of enabling Lamar! to spend more time with his family and his piano.

p.s. I invited Joe to join and post on Free Republic. Hope he does it!

Ping. Let me know if you want to be added / removed.

I had to rebuild the list. If I missed anyone who asked to be added, please let me know.

A substantial number at the rally yesterday were immigrants.

I wanted to make sure you see this, Jim.

Keep your spirits up! I believe you will come out of this thing feeling better than you have in years.

We are conservatives! We shouldn’t need rallies or money! He’s safe.

Add me to the list! Born and raised in the great state of Tennessee, left for 30 years, just moved back to stay. I called him a TRAITOR to his EMPLOYERS now I want to see him and his partner in crime (Corker) replaced by someone who actually works FOR the people of Tennessee!

Added and welcome home, Brother.

Check out the links above and get signed up for the ground game.

I had previously posted a wrong number on how many vetted doors we will knock on. The correct number is 700,000.

If this potential is true, people in Maryville are not going to like it!

I'd like an answer as well, don-o.

You had stated that there were lots of immigrants there.

My support (financial and otherwise) of Carr will be predicated on whether or not he is completely anti-Amnesty.

I used the term in relation to folks moving to Tennessee from other STATES.

Concerning foreign immigration - secure the border and enforce the law. No to amnesty. Further the 14th Amendment does not grant citizenship to babies of illegals.

Let's nip that in the bud! It is unfortunate that the word immigrant now is associated so closely with illegal. While I understand that, my comment was using the word in reference to someone moving to Tennessee from another state

There are many conservatives moving into East Tennessee because they are tired of the marxists and liberals in the areas that they come from...they want to gather with people of a like mind. My wife and I were part of this movement, although we made the horrible error of returning to Red England over 'family matters' (hers, not mine). Hopefully, we can come home in the next few months. If so; two more votes for Joe Carr.

It is unfortunate that the word immigrant now is associated so closely with illegal.

Politicians and illegal immigrant alien criminal invader supporters have for years used the word immigrant to mean, although this fact doesn't matter to them, illegal invading aliens. In order to brainwash the masses into accepting that they have a right to break our laws and settle in the USA and bypass the fact they are illegal.

The first definition of immigrant in the dictionary is "a person who migrates to another country, usually for permanent residence."

They also changed out wonderful word "gay" to mean sexual perversion which they then say "not that there is anything wrong with that."

There are subtle differences in regional dialect. I believe I have heard it both ways.

I have a cousin raised in North Carolina doing a year of Christian mission work in Portland, Ore. She has found that some folks will engage with her just to hear how she talks.

Correct, Lady Heron: Murr-vul.

Maryville is the county seat of Blount County, Tennessee,[4] in the Southeastern United States. The city is located 20 miles (32 km) south of Knoxville. Maryville’s population was 27,258 at the 2010 census. It is included in the Knoxville Metropolitan Area. Maryville has received a number of accolades for its quality of life. The cable channel A&E named the city to its list of “Top Ten Cities to Have It All”. (including Lamar!)

How is it pronounced?
