The Mississippi Gulf Coast TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party in conjunction with the 912/We Surround Them Project in Ocean Springs endorsed Republican Steven Palazzo in the Mississippi Fourth District Congressional race at a meeting October 11 at the St. Martin Community Center.
Palazzo, a State Representative from Biloxi, is running against Democratic incumbent Gene Taylor in the November 2 election.
Arnold Murphy of Gulfport delivered the joint endorsement of Palazzo for the two groups that are local grassroots movements committed to returning the power in Washington to individuals who believe in the sanctity of the Constitution of the United States which grants only specified powers to the federal government. Under the Tenth Amendment, any powers not thusly granted shall be enjoyed by the
States and the People.
"We are endorsing Palazzo over Taylor because we believe that Palazzo understands that the federal government cannot solve the problems of the country. It is best when the federal government allows the American people the freedom to do it for themselves," said Murphy. "Our government is out of control
under Obama, Pelosi and Reid, and Taylor supported all for their leadership jobs."
After the meeting, representatives of the Mississippi Gulf Coast TEA Party supported the TEA Party's endorsement:
"Both groups feel Steve is a military veteran who more accurately reflects the true conservative values of
the majority of the Mississippi Fourth Congressional district, and that he will not bow to the progressives
in the U.S. House of Representatives." Charlie Purchner of Long Beach
"We are supporting Palazzo foremost because our government is totally out of control, ignoring the protections and safeguards protected by the Constitution. We must take back our country and I don't know how else to do it besides changing our representation. Everything I have heard from Palazzo agrees with my philosophy and, I suspect, the philosophy of all like-minded conservatives." Ralph Zuleg of Pass Christian
"Most of our members long ago shed the label of Republican or Democrat. Most consider themselves Constitutionalists and will cast their votes for the candidate who most shares their views on the power
of the federal government. Steven Palazzo is our choice in the upcoming election. He understands the Constitution and more importantly has read and understands the Tenth Amendment. If the size and
power of the federal government is not drastically reduced in the very near future, individual rights,
liberties and responsibilities will fall by the wayside and all Americans will simply become part of the
“collective”. Palazzo, we are confident, will be vigilant in his duties to restore traditional American
values and principles. He will say what he means and mean what he says." Tim Menius of Gulfport
"It is vital to have a Congressional representative who will represent the views and votes of his
constituents. We believe that Steven Palazzo better represents the conservative views and votes
of the people of the Mississippi Fourth Congressional District. It is also crucial to replace the current
majority in the House of Representatives that has initiated and pushed through a progressive agenda
that most Americans don't want or support." Terry Fountain of Ocean Springs.
On behalf of the two groups, Murphy encouraged Palazzo to make jobs a top priority upon election.
