Comment   Email   Print
The Rutherford County Democratic Party (RCDP) announced Monday the first straw poll in the 2010 Democratic primary for Governor of Tennessee.

The inaugural Rutherford County Grow Tennessee dinner will take place from 6-9 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 19 in the Tennessee Ballroom of MTSU's James Union Building.

Rep. Kent and Cecil Coleman, John and Marilyn Hood, Andy and Cherry Womack, and Sandra Y. Trail play host to the evening, which is a fundraiser that will also serve as an important early straw poll of Middle Tennessee Democrats on who they feel has the best vision to move Tennessee forward as the next Governor.

"Grow Tennessee will be an early indication of who Middle Tennessee Democrats are supporting in the 2010 Gubernatorial primary," RCDP Chairman Jonathon Fagan said. "The candidate that emerges on top will send a strong message to the party, press and donors for weeks to come that they are a serious candidate to move our state forward."

All five Democrotic Gubernatorial candidates Sen. Jim Kyle, Kim McMillan, Sen. Roy Herron, Mike McWherter and Ward Cammack will be at this event and share brief words about their vision for future of our great state.

Seats are limited and tickets can be purchased online at the RCDP Web site (www.rutherfordcountydemocrats.org) or through ActBlue (www.actblue.com/page/growtn). Individual tickets are $50, couples are $80 and tables are $280.

Murfreesboro, Tennessee is the birthplace of today's modern Democratic Party, born in 1822 in what was then the State Capitol on Vine Street when Andrew Jackson declared his candidacy for President of the United States, and was nominated by the Tennessee Legislature.

To purchase tickets in person, call RCDP at 615-796-1472 or Pat McFadden at 615-336-7450.

Yup, "Grow" Tennessee. Grow Tennessee Government, Grow Tennessee Taxes, Grow Tennessee Debt, Grow the number of Tennesseans dependent on the nipple of mother government (which makes for a dependent constituency) and Grow the liberal agenda. What a noble endeavor. Socialized medicine anyone?

Sometimes you guys make me laugh. Relax folks, rate it's been lagging all these years, Tennessee is never going to grow up.

We do need to grow TN We need to grow America. That takes money. Taxes are not the problem politicians who feel that tax money is theirs to spend.and give no bid contracts. We need to stop the partisan ideology and stand together, and do what is right for all.

Well, the BHO administration has tripled the national debt in the last 7 1/2 months, passed the Cap and Tax that will increase what everyone will pay for any type of energy. They just don't get it. If you lower taxes it helps the economy because people have more of their money to spend, it helps small businesses because that is where our basic economy starts. Repressive taxes drive businesses out of business, and out of the country. You wonder why a lot of companies have gone overseas? It's one simple answer, OPRESSIVE TAXES. They just cannot afford to pay the taxes and stay in business. The only Liberal President that knew this was John F. Kennedy, the ony one of that family that really understood true economics and lowered taxes at the beginning of his administration. Cap and Tax, Stimulus spending, Government run healthcare? That's Socialism at it best.

Why do they call it common sense when it is soooooo uncommon?

This is my opinion and mine alone. Just one person and not a party.
I have watched this going on for 60 years and nothing has changed. Both parties stink to high heaven. Liers and theives. As soon as they are elected their job is to keep getting re-elected and - screw the people.

The only way I see to get out of this cycle is to throw this whole bunch out and elect all new people, tell then what we want done and which laws we want rolled back. When I say elect all new people I dont mean one party or the other I just mean all fresh blood.
Then we need to watch them like a hawk to make sure they vote our line and not the party line. If they don't --- throw them out to.
Just my personal thoughts and if I offend anyone ---- who cares...
