The RHATT Watch
Today is Independence Day, Wednesday, July 4th, Day 70 of the Rhatt Watch.
How this day came to be is as important to us today as it was in 1776. While offering refuge from poverty and persecution in Great Britain and throughout Europe, life in the “Colonies” wasn’t easy. There were the harsh wilderness, hostile Native Americans, friction attributed to King George III and other challenges.
Following the French and Indian War, Britain began imposing a series of punitive taxes (i.e., Stamp, Tea, etc.) which were resisted by the Colonists and thus increased tensions. As a result of the Tea Act on December 16th, 1973, a group of ?Colonists, the Sons of Liberty, boarded a ship in Boston Harbor and dumped its cargo of tea into the water. Britain retaliated and on April 19th, 1775, attempted to disarm the Massachusetts militia. The Revolutionary War had started.
The Colonies, including the Provinces of New Hampshire and Massachusetts Bay, Colony of Rhode Island, Connecticut Colony, Provinces of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, Delaware Colony, Province of Maryland, Colony and Dominion of Virginia, Provinces of North Carolina and South Carolina (also the Province of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Georgia were invited, but did not attend) were invited to send delegates to the 1st Continental Congress meeting in Philadelphia from September 5th to October 26, 1774.
Fifty-six delegates met and agreed to attempt negotiations with King George III. The negotiations failed. Afer the shots were fired in Concord and Lexington, a 2nd Continental Congress was convened on May 10, 1775 with Georgia sending deligates. Novia Scotia and New Brunswick declined. Virginia delegate Richard Henry Lee offered a Resolution of Independence which was accepted and voted upon July 2, 1776, beginning independence for America. A “Committee of Five” led by Thomas Jefferson was selected to produce a Declaration of Independence, which after editing by the Congress was adopted July 4th. Fifty-six delegated, including John Hancock, President of the 2nd Continental Congress, signed the Declaration. That was the birth of a nation and the beginning of real freedom from the tyranny of a despotic ruler, interested only in himself and his “cousins”.
White Springs finds itself in a similar situation today. It has a despotic tyrant and a bunch of “Cousins” pillaging the Town’s and its citizens’ resources for personal benefit. However, White Springs doesn’t need a declaration of independence; the Florida legislature has provided the Town’s citizens with the tools they need.
The Florida Statutes, Title IX – Electors and Elections, Chapter 100 – General, Primary, Special, Bond and Referendum Elections, Section – 100.361 Municipal Recall provide White Springs Voters with a process to remove corrupt and tyrannical officials. Law enforcement and multiple ethics investigations by the Florida Commission on Ethics are underway regarding two Council members, the Ratt and Mindless, for both criminal and ethics violations.
Voters of White Springs, you can do something about it before it’s too late and there’s still a Town. Nikki Williams and “The Watch” have initiated a Recall and have available copies of a Recall Petition If you are interested and willing to help, please visit one of us. Like the Declaration of Independence, we need every signatory we can muster. Please don’t wait. It’s your Town , your resources, and your money that need to be protected.
Everybody from the Feds, Governor Scott’s office, State’s Attorney Sigmeister, and Sheriff Reid to Chief Tracy know about all of the illicit activities in White Springs. They know about the Ratt, his druggie, Lapdog “Just keep paying me” Tebow, Mindless “Splain it to me” Tanja and Cousins Pam, Andrew and Steve and their involvement. Also if you have information, call the FBI office in Jacksonville (904) 248-7000.
Recall the Ratt! It’s Day 70 and the Red-face Ratt hasn’t resigned yet. The Rhatt Watch continues!
