    Myself and Vice-Chairman Jeff Jarrell have deemed the Harrisburg CPNC meeting a success. We arrived safely on Thursday evening via good travel conditions, had a good night’s rest and then heard opening remarks on Saturday morning. The highlights of the meeting went as follows:

    Presentations on the NWO, foundations of liberty, PA Capitol, the UN, Canadian liberties, the Middle East, county sheriffs, and sovereignty. Notable speakers: Chelene Nightingale (2010 CA gov candidate), John F. McManus (John Birch Society president), Richard Mack (former AZ sheriff who took on the Clintons over the Brady bill), Darrell Castle (2008 CP Vice Presidential nominee), Dr. Taylor Haynes (2010 write-in candidate for WY gov, 8+%), and Virgil Goode (former Virginia congressman).

    Party-building / business discussions on ballot access, fall meeting in Spokane (Oct 20-22), next year’s nominating convention in Nashville (April 20-22), state credentials, convention rules and planning, national platform, Eastern states regional meeting, and resolutions. Resolutions calling for the repeal of ObamaCare, opposing the “Fair Tax”, opposing “Top Two” election schemes, and encouraging Virgil Goode to seek the party’s 2012 presidential nomination were unanimously passed.

    Before driving back to the Mountain State, the Jeff-Squared team took a tour of Amish country in Lancaster County and dined on authentic Pennsylvania Dutch (correctly pronounced Deutch as informed by Obie our guide) cuisine. The baked chicken and schmear were outstanding. I learned that the Amish are forbidden from riding bicycles because they allow travel too distant from home, but vintage foot scooters are ok and everyone seems to have one.
