Town Hall Meeting: How to put a Conservative in the White House in 2016

Lewis Uhler, founder and president of the National Tax Limitation Committee (NTLC), one of the nation’s leading grass roots taxpayer lobbies, will speak at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, July 17 at a Town Hall Meeting at the Holiday Inn Express in El Dorado Hills.

Uhler served in Ronald Reagan’s administrations in California and in Washington, D.C.

Uhler will address the following topics:

• Elector reallocation by congressional district in six states: Six states can legally change how they allocate the electors won in the popular vote which would change the outcome in a presidential election. Mitt Romney would have won the presidency in 2012 if this system had been in place.

• Out-of-Washington oversight hearings: Congress is charged with oversight of all government agencies and programs but has not been doing its job. The NTLC will be sponsoring oversight hearings in over 100 congressional districts over the next year to inform voters about the lack of oversight of government programs in Washington.

• California reallocation of electors: California could adopt a new system for allocating electors and stop the disenfranchisement of many of the voters in the conservative parts of the state.

• Fallout of Prop. 8 “standing” in the future: The U.S. Supreme Court’s refusal to hear a case regarding same-sex marriage raises serious questions about the initiative process in California and other states.

In 2010, Uhler co-authored with Erick Erickson the book “Red State Uprising: How to Take Back America.” Uhler also wrote the book, “Setting Limits: Constitutional Control of Government,” with foreword by Milton Friedman, published in 1989. Uhler speaks internationally on fiscal issues and has appeared on numerous national, regional and local television and radio programs and has been widely quoted in the print media.

Uhler served in Gov. Ronald Reagan’s administration on the California Law Revision Commission and as the governor’s state director of the Office of Economic Opportunity. He also served in Reagan’s cabinet as assistant secretary of the Health and Welfare Agency and as chairman of the Tax Reduction Task Force.

In 1990, Uhler was co-author of Proposition 140, California’s pioneering state term limit initiative. Under Uhler’s leadership, NTLC has forged coalitions, including “Americans for Responsible Privatization,” the “Council for Retirement Security” and more recently the “Tax Cut Working Group” in Washington, which Uhler chairs with Jim Martin (60 Plus Association) and Dan Mitchell (Heritage Foundation).

Uhler, a native Californian, is a graduate of Yale University and the Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California at Berkeley. He and his wife, Cynthia, have four grown sons and reside in the Sacramento area.

    The Tea Party is a radical fringe group who we don't need to be directing our country. Let's put someone in the White House who represents more Americans and who does not believe we should steal civil rights from women and LGBT people.

    there will not be a far right conservative in the white house in 2017. the voters of this country - thank God - will never elect a tea party presidental candidate. their agenda is not supported by the majority. if it were, mitt romney would be the president of the united states.

    kgg, you are of the belief that people voting for government dependence over personal responsibility is a good thing. Romney was anything but a far right conservative. He was elected governor in the home of ted kennedy and john Kerry and chief spreading bull. Trying to educate you clowns against the grain of all your indoctrination gets old.

  • Tea time a day lateJuly 18, 2013 - 6:28 am

    "The core values of the tea party movement are constitutionally limited government" I'm sad to see a leader of a party make the above quote, but it is par for the course, and he isn't singled out by this comment. Them Maxim "where there is no remedy there is no right." Where there is no right there is no constitution. What the tea party isn't aware of is that the 11th amendment created a "constitutionally limited democracy." Prior to the 11th amendment there was a constitutionally limited government. Yet I see no debate on this, and the 11th amendment is 218 years old. So without knowledge of this, the tea party is just another group who want to remain status quo, but the leaders want to take the place of those as officials who thenselves can take advantage of "absolute power" that the 11th amendment will provide for officials that want to gain wealth in office by pushing the limits of abuse of power that the 11th amendment protects with "absolute immunity." What your history teacher didn't tell you is this, "Congress made a law in 1795 that abridged the right to redress of grievance." In spite that 4 years earlier in 1791, the Constitution's First Amendment clearly states, "Congress shall make no law...abridging...the right of citizens redress of grievances." Congress did the impossible and violated an inalienable right! Thus, no constitution exists if there is no remedy! This should put every American in tilt mode! In short, there is no equal standard for remedy if officials violate civil rights, your only hope is no longer rule of law and equality, but "faith" (Alden infra) of favorable dispensation through influential decree. As a result, criminal acts of abuse of power are encouraged, instead of deterred. This is not a democratic policy, but ancient dogmatic "sovereignty" affirmed by the Supreme Court in Alden v. Maine U.S. 1999. The good news is that there are more of us, than there are of them and there is no legal basis in common law or logic for this to stand, we can legally end it in a Bloodless Revolution by merely repealing it, and exercising democracy. As implausible as it is for this Eleventh Amendment to exist, nevertheless, it does because the Eleventh Amendment stands as law today only because awareness of its existence has been left out of academia, documentary television, and most other forms of press and media. It has not ever been subjected to your democratic approval. Thus, the golden opportunity that presented itself has been seized!

    In 2010 the repubs won over 600 seats nationally. Those who do your thinking for you credit those record dim losses to the teaparty. The tyrannical win at all costs leftists were so terrified of that outcome that they spent the next two years using the force of the federal government thru the IRS to single out and suppress those groups. That suppression combined with vote fraud is the only reason obama was re-elected. I realize what a waste of time it is to point out these realities to wizards of smarts such as yourselves since facts to a leftists are like sunlight to a vampire. After all people who believe they are entitled to what other people earn will believe anything the left tells them.

    Nancy, and it is the way it is intended that Mrs. Clinton face off with another Democrat. The point is, she is the most qualified and capable of all. Someone will have to run against her and it will be interesting for sure. Tea Time a day late, thank you so much for this post. INow I feel educated. Pvillejack, yes, the Republican Party continues to be pulled farther and farther right and the majority is not/will not respond in their favor. What's the saying--"Give them enough rope and they will hang themselves." I am not surprised that the early bird, fringe posters have not responded to Tea Time (educating themselves first, not doubt)

    If they thinned the forest...there would be more water...and the trees would be healthier. Crowded trees are not healthy trees. And not clearing out the brush...that doesnt make sense--esp when people are near by. Unless someone wants the people herded into smaller areas...because their homes went up in flames. Here in Pollock free insurance rates went up--

    There have always been fires--communication technology just glorifies tragedy faster inside homes. California is a slash and burn state--the Indians understood that as well...and would clear the brush out. Is this another case of "...sometimes history should be put on the back burner..." (I learned that at one of our "visioning" meetings from Mr. Ward--our facilitator at the time.) We have people up here--the forest it too thick guys...hello...

    Fran, the conditions in the forest are not due to man's use of energy. They are due to man's interference with the natural order. Leftists know better than even mother nature. And you are correct about the water being consumed by on over grown forest. Again, just another unintended consequence of the wizards of smart. But notice on these threads the impossible task of breaking thru their emotional investment in their indoctrination. At the cost of todays energy you would go broke keeping the temperature of your house at their IQ's.

    Fran, not all women will vote for Hillary. Twenty percent hard core Tea/Republican women will not. Ten percent of women will not because she cannot keep Bill on the porch (they should look to themselves as to how successful they are keeping their own husbands on the porch). And, finally five percent won't vote for her because she was actually at Benghazi and pushed the Ambassador back into the fire. That leaves sixty-five percent of women who will vote for her and that's all she needs. Get ready my distinguished MtDemocrat friends, Hillary is on the move and will not be stopped. Our very first woman president.
