DAYTONA BEACH -- It is Christmas Eve and I am thankful for the freedom and liberty God has given our family by placing us in a free state. Yet, I can not dismiss the concern I feel each day for the very present reality of our God given liberties being stripped from our daily lives by a few compromised men and women who seek to increase their own power, privilege, and position.

I am regularly criticized for regularly criticizing "our" side in the battle to restore liberty. The truth is I no longer have a side in politics. Neither of the two controlling parties represent constitutional restraint, love of individual freedom, minimal government intrusion, or minding our own business.

ORLANDO -- Pledging to his GOP colleagues that he would be a "conservative voice" for the party, Tony Ledbetter, chairman of the Republican Executive Committee of Volusia County, was elected Congressional Dis. 6 chairman for the Republican Party of Florida at its annual meeting this weekend at the Rosen Centre Hotel. 

"I am honored by the support from the conservative leaders in Congressional District 6. I will be a conservative voice on the State Executive Board of the Florida Republican Party," said Ledbetter, of Ormond Beach, who will represent Volusia, Putnam, St. John and Flagler counties on the State Executive Board of the Republican Party for the next two years.

JAMESTOWN, IND -- One could conclude the Democratic Party has swung too far to the left and peril awaits them in up-coming elections. Debt is no longer fashionable; a tool many bragged was trendy. One need not look far to see citizens across the land rising in revolt to the status quo.

Editor's Note: Here is the weekly message from Congressman Ron DeSantis...

Congressman Ron DeSantisWASHINGTON, D.C. -- Dear Friend – Last week, you helped me reach over 1,000 Facebook likes, which was a wonderful way to celebrate my first 100 days in Congress! Thank you to everyone who has connected with on Facebook and on Twitter at @RepDeSantis - hearing from you is the most important part of my job.

It is a privilege and an honor to represent Florida's sixth district in Congress! When I announced last week that I had co-sponsored legislation mandating that the new drone medal not be given a higher precedence than the Purple Heart, I also stated that it was my hope that Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel would simply handle it himself at the Department of Defense level.

I am pleased to report that Secretary Hagel has discontinued the drone medal entirely.

“A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government.” -- Thomas Jefferson

NEW SMYRNA BEACH -- Is it not ironic that Thomas Jefferson is an icon of the Democrat Party? And that he would be on record believing that government, in order to be “good” government,” should be minimal and stay out of the way of individuals’ efforts to profit from their labor?

NEW SMYRNA BEACH -- Is there no end to hypocrisy when it comes to the argument about legal voters being required to show legitimate identification in order to exercise this important right? To get a library card, board a plane, cash a check, drive a vehicle, buy a bottle of wine and in many other ordinary life events, we are required to produce picture identification.

DAYTONA BEACH SHORES -- Concluding a primary campaign which had become increasingly vicious and personal, Mitt Romney swept aside Newt Gingrich’s challenge and easily re-established himself as the front runner in the race for the GOP presidential nomination with 46.4% of the vote in the Sunshine State.

ORMOND BEACH -- State Attorney General Pam Bondi was here Sunday night to support Mitt Romney at the big rally, but where were other Sunshine State Republican office holders? NSB News reached out to the offices of U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, Congressman John Mica, Congresswoman Sandy Adams and Gov. Rick Scott.

Both the Rubio and Scott camps said they were remaining nuetral -- at least for the time being.
