October General Meeting

We will be holding our October monthly General Meeting on Thursday evening, October 16, at Piccadilly in Mall St. Vincent.  We will have several candidates for public office (at least 3) presenting their candidacy and answering questions.  We currently have Benjamin Arnold, Jim Taliaferro and Doug Dominick scheduled.  These candidates either approached us about speaking at this meeting or were approached by the board based on recommendations or interest of one or more current or former RRTP board members.  As is our usual practice, we are not endorsing these candidates by allowing them to speak at the upcoming meeting - only giving them on opportunity to present their candidacy and to hopefully educate attendees on any pressing issues facing the city/state and how they would address them were they to be elected.  We do extend an invitation to any more candidates who have a demonstrable history of adherence to constitutional conservative (i.e. limited government) beliefs who would like to join the roster for this meeting, however we will need to establish a limit on the total number of speakers as the restaurant will close at 8:30, and we want to allow a reasonable amount of time for each candidate while aiming to finish by 8:00.  We probably will not be able to allow more than 6 candidates at this meeting, with the remaining 3 openings offered on a first come first serve basis (email the board at redriverteaparty@gmail.com if you'd like to be added).  Additional candidates who are interested in speaking to our group but are not able to contact us in time for this meeting may still inquire about setting up an additional meeting, or joining the roster of candidates for the October 28 We The People Tea Party candidate forum which we will also be promoting in our email blasts.  (You can join our mailing list by signing up below in the blue box.)

The restaurant meeting space will be available starting at 5:00 for those wishing to buy dinner, and the meeting will begin at 6:00.


 
 
Constitution Class
Next one on October 24 - 6:00 PM

We will be holding our Constitution Class on the fourth Thursday of every month in the Fellowship Hall of The Clarion Church (9000 E. Kings Highway, Shreveport 71115), which is the former LSUS University Worship Center.  The Clarion Church is renting the building and apparently has not been granted permission to replace the original sign, so they only have a small yard sign identifying their church which is placed below the original unaltered sign for University Worship Center.  Traveling south on E. Kings Highway, past the LSUS ball fields and Orleans Square Apartments on the west side of the street, look for the white church building.  Parking is in the back and the driveway in is a small one next to the mailbox.  They share parking with the Montessori School, but the school day is well finished by 6:00, so we should have the parking lot to ourselves and any other groups who may happen to be using the church building at the same time.

Our classes will be based on the lectures of Hillsdale College's Constitution 101 series, which were conducted by Hillsdale in 2012 as a public service and made available free of charge to all who registered at that time.  This course remains posted on YouTube, so if you miss a class, it's not difficult to view the session that you missed on your computer at home before coming to the next class.  What makes Hillsdale's Constitution 101 course unique is that they have a very affordable textbook that goes along with it - The U.S. Constitution: A Reader.  The book is composed of original documents and writings by our founding fathers, both in favor of and against the original U.S. Constitution so that an informed and balanced view of the range of opinions and issues discussed during the time leading up to and after the adoption of our founding documents can be seen.  Print copies of the textbook are still available on Hilldale's website for $30 + shipping, but the complete contents of the book can also be viewed free of charge.  Most of the documents should be easy to find elsewhere on the internet, as well.  See the following links for more information:

(At the October 24 Class, we will be showing the Week 3 Session, "The Problem of Majority Tyranny" with Professor David Bobb.)

We hope to see you at the next class.  Keep the fires of liberty burning, Patriots.
