SC Tea Party Leader: ‘Unfortunate’ Lindsey Graham Dismisses Grassroots

posted by Leave a Comment

Not exactly seeing eye to eye!Joe Dugan, the Executive Producer of the South Carolina Tea Party Convention appeared on Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 and said 2014 will be an even bigger year for the movement than 2010, the year which put the Tea Party on the map and gave Republicans back the House of Representatives in an historic midterm election year.

Dugan told host and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon, “2010 was a firecracker. 2014 is going to be an explosion.”

He said the Tea Party has always been right about the perils of Obamacare. He said when Americans get “hit in the pocketbook on Obamacare,” the Tea Party will get even more credibility on health carearrow-10x10.png, which will make the movement gain more credibility on other issues such as the national debt. He said the impact will be felt at the ballot box.

Horry county Against Common CoreSouth Carolina voluntarily adopted Common Core — K-12 education standards in math, reading and language arts. The standards outline what students should know and know how to do at every grade level. Noticing the high number of students reaching college without basic skills, governors and state school superintendents across the nation decided to create Common Core. Critics of Common Core, including state schools Superintendent Mick Zais, say the standards were adopted hastily by a select few and are a “one-size-fits-all solution that won’t serve students well.”

South Carolina legislators fighting Common Core: Reps. Eric Bedingfield, R-Greenville; Mike Burns, R-Greenville; Bill Chumley, R-Spartanburg; Heather Crawford, R-Horry; William Crosby, R-Charleston; Craig Gagnon, R-Abbeville; Stephen Goldfinch, R-Georgetown; Dwight Loftis, R-Greenville; Samuel Rivers, R-Berkeley; Mark Willis, R-Greenville; and Donna Wood, R-Spartanburg. Also Sens. Lee Bright, R-Spartanburg, Kevin Bryant, R-Anderson; and Larry Grooms, R-Berkeley.

Eight problems with Common Core Standards
By Valerie Strauss

posted by Leave a Comment

We The People Are Against Common CoreOne: Standards shouldn’t be attached to school subjects, but to the qualities of mind it’s hoped the study of school subjects promotes. Subjects are mere tools, just as scalpels, acetylene torches, and transits are tools. Surgeons, welders, surveyors — and teachers — should be held accountable for the quality of what they produce, not how they produce it.

Two: The world changes. The future is indiscernible. Clinging to a static strategy in a dynamic world may be comfortable, even comforting, but it’s a Titanic-deck-chair exercise.

Graham’s primary challenge race is fight for the soul of the SC GOP

posted by Leave a Comment

Ma7Hu.AuSt.74COLUMBIA — U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham is a “stalwart” Republican – pro-life and the proud owner of an AR-15 who frequently zings President Barack Obama for his health care law and his handling of a deadly attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, supporters say.

But Graham’s record has drawn four GOP primary opponents, and the ire of Tea Party and libertarian activists, who bristled when the two-term senator from Seneca rebuked fellow congressional Republicans for refusing to fund the government unless Obama delayed or defunded his health care law.

posted by 1 Comment

common-core-is-not-the-answerCOLUMBIA, SC — South Carolina Tea Party groups — warning of an overreaching federal government and massive privacy invasions — are joining calls nationwide to derail education standards called Common Core.

“It doesn’t matter if I like them. It doesn’t matter if you like them or if they like them. We can’t do anything about it,” said Linda Ensor of Summerville, who organized several Tea Party groups to travel to Columbia Wednesday to urge the state Board of Education to rethink its 2010 adoption of Common Core.
