A Constitutional Conversation:
The Declaration of Independence
presented by Scott Cumbie
Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at 6:00 PM
Forsyth Tech West Campus, 1300 Bolton Street
The foundation for our US Constitution is the Declaration of Independence. The Declaration not only defines to philosophy that is the core of our uniquely American government, but it defines the problems that the American colonies experienced under British rule. The US Constitution corrects each of the problems identified in the Declaration. To fully understand the US Constitution, you must understand the foundation, the Declaration of Independence.
When: August 20, 2013 at 6:30 PM
Where: Forsyth Tech West Campus, 1300 Bolton St., Winston-Salem, NC 27130
Who: Lindalyn Kakadelis, NC Education Alliance
What: Common Core and Public Education
Under the guise of common education standards, the left is pushing the implementation of Common Core around the country. Lindalyn Kakdelis will be educating us on Common Core, telling us the status and affect on NC Public Education and what we must do to stop the implementation.
NC Lt. Gov. Dan Forest has a short YouTube video where he expresses his initial concerns with Common Core: http://youtu.be/KdCav9-2Ri4
When: Thursday, July 25, 2013 at 6:30 PM
Where: Forsyth Tech West Campus, 1300 Bolton St, Winston-Salem, NC 27103
Who: Vallee Bubak and NC Rep Robert Brawley
What: Public/Private Partnerships and Toll Roads
There is an effort under way to create toll lanes on I-77. If successful, NC would sign a 50 year contract (yes, that’s fifty year contract) with a private company to own and manage these toll lanes. If I-77 is tolled, other roads, including I-40, could soon be on a list to be tolled.
The decision to toll I-77 will affect all of NC. A 50-year Public/Private Partnership should be a serious concern for all taxpayers. This will create a financial obligation to your grandchildren, great-grandchildren and their children.
This event is the first in a series of meetings sponsored by the Forsyth County Republican Party to provide information and education on important topics facing We the People. Thanks to the Salem College Republicans for helping to schedule the venue at Salem College.
When: Tuesday, May 14, 2013 at 7:00PM, sharp

Dear President Obama,
My name is Harold Estes, I’m approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.
I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos’n Mate. Now I live in a “rest home” located on the western end of Pearl Harbor, allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.
One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.
So here goes.
I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.
I can’t figure out what country you are the president of. You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:
- “We’re no longer a Christian nation”
- “America is arrogant” – (Your wife even announced to the world,” America is meanspirited.” Please tell her to try preaching that nonsense to 23 generations of our war dead buried all over the globe who died for no other reason than to free a whole lot of strangers from tyranny and hopelessness.)
I’d say shame on the both of you, but I don’t think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.
After 9/11 you said,” America hasn’t lived up to her ideals.” Which ones did you mean?
- Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British?
- Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War?
- I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.
- I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination. You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.
Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man. Shape up and start acting like an American. If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue. You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.
And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don’t want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts, who was putting up a fight? You don’t mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don’t want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.
One more thing. I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you’re the Commander-in-Chief now, son. Do your job. When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him. But if you’re not in this fight to win, then get out. The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you’re thinking of.
You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president.
You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That’s not our greatest threat. Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now. And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle.
Harold B. Estes
