Had a very good time at the Conservative Forum of the Commonwealth Meetup event last night. Met some dedicated conservatives from various parts of central Massachusetts and shared video from both CPAC and yesterday’s Tea Party protests on Main Street.

We talked about the Scott Brown race, the real impact of the average folk at CPAC and the obamacare bill. It was a very pleasant time and I look forward to the March 29th event that will be taking place at the Border Grille and Bar. (You know me any excuse to go to the Border is a good one for me!)

Of course me being me things would not be normal if I didn’t take some video and ask questions of those willing who attended.

I was not the only speaker, Dale Brown who is running as an independent in the 5th district (vs Niki Tsongas) was there and gave me a few minutes.

His health care plan is here. Brown maintains that it is likely that a republican in that seat rather than an independent would likely go back to business as usual. He stated that if elected he would caucus with Republicans for organizational purposes but would not be beholden to them in terms of fiscal responsibility

My final interview was with Charlie…

Being the modest man I am (hope you weren’t drinking when you read that) I got myself crossed up a bit after Charlie’s kind praise..

It was a very worthwhile evening, although two conflicting events (Glenn Beck film in Worcester and Republican party meeting in Leominster) affected turnout. I look forward to seeing them and you at the Border on the 29th.

  1. Um, what 29 March event? Where? Are North Shore red-headed bloggers invited?

  2. I like Jim he spoke intelligently.

    I like Dale too he seems like a normal guy. I like his health care suggestion in which each state must have their own program, everyone must be covered, I would add myself that there must be a federally mandated mininum coverage and hopefully all state programs would exceed the minimum requirements.

    Charlie sounded like he knows what is going on with the party in Massachusetts. He likes Datechguy so we know he’s got some flaws, lol. If politicos spoke in real terms and kept it simple like he suggests all would be good.
