Tea Party Patriots Bringing the Conscience of America to Washington DC

The Tea Party......Activist Group or Social Club?

The Tea Party…Activist Group or Social Club?

The Tea Party is at a branch in the road, which way will we go? Many local Tea Party and Patriot groups have tried from inception to maintain a nonpartisan stance. As we near the end of the primary season we are forced to decide…fish or cut bait…become active and support candidates or be a social club.

I have heard, oh so, many times “We are the Tea Party, we don’t endorse candidates, we just advocate for issues”. Well, what our Country needs right now is a little more “grassroots activism”, you know that feet in the street, boots on the ground kind of activism. Of course you are going to have to decide who to endorse whether your local leader and Tea Party will chose or not, because voting for someone you trust to do the right thing is your only viable option to bring real change and secure your liberties.

Remember the old rhyme “Sticks and stones may break my bones but names cannot hurt me”? Well, today’s politicians have a new one “Chants and signs might reflect the times but only votes can replace me!” That’s right “No votey, no changey”! You can just advocate for issues or you can, in addition, elect candidates who agree with you on issues! Personally I like my elected officials to be on my side of the issues, it makes life easier!

The battle to restore and preserve your freedom and liberty is going to be fought door to door, call by call, one vote at a time, not at rallies waving signs. If you expect to win, you have to be ready to invest something, time or money or both, it’s your choice. Find the candidates that represent your views most closely and go out there and work for them.

If your Tea Party leaders can’t make a choice or endorse the most viable candidates, let them know that the battle for freedom and liberty cannot be won from the sidelines. If they still don’t want to make a choice then it is time to start marching to your own tune or find new leaders.

You have the fire in the belly, the desire to do something and you want to make a difference. What a shame it would be to waste all of that energy going to luncheons, meet and greets, rallies and such just to hang out with folks of like mind and wind up missing the real battle for your freedom! It’s one thing to talk about freedom and quite another to defend it. Let’s hope that we all are successful with this year’s elections and we can continue to enjoy our freedom and not just be talking about what it used to be like to be free.

Win or lose what will your legacy be? When your grandkids ask about the great battle between constitutional freedom and socialism, are you going to tell them how you were in the thick of it fighting tooth and nail, going door to door and call by call garnering the necessary votes or will you tell them you were going to meetings and waving signs.

Which scenario do you think will bring the change we need and restore the hope of our nation? Choose whom you are going to support today, call the campaign, get engaged in the fight and start securing your freedom and liberty, before it is too late!

Oh, and to help save time, if you have read this far, you will probably find the candidates of your choosing on the Republican ticket. Reclaim…Restore…Reunite the Republic!

Take The Town Halls To Washington

Nationwide Tea Party Coalition - "Take The Town Halls To Washington"
MEMPHIS, Tennessee (March 5, 2010) - The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is today announcing a new project, "Take The Town Halls To Washington", which is designed to bring tea party activists to Washington, DC during the month of March to meet, question and review the positions of approximately 60 Democrat members of the House of Representatives whose vote on the pending Health Care legislation has not yet been publicly announced. Tea Party Nation is a collaborating partner in the project.
Spokesman Mark A. Skoda, who is also Chairman of The Memphis TEA Party stated, "President Obama has indicated his willingness to ignore the people and force his bill through Congress using whatever means necessary. Our objective is to bring thousands of constituents to DC to meet with their representatives, capture their comments and produce a review of those positions on a daily basis. We believe that time is of the essence and the people need to understand where these representatives stand before any vote is taken."
Organizer, Michael Patrick Leahy further stated, "After more than a year of tea party resistance to the big government efforts of the Obama Administration, it all comes down to the next 3 weeks. The Administration has made it clear. They intend to ram down the Health Care takeover through a corrupt Congress by the end of this month, in direct defiance of the clearly expressed will of the American people.”
“It is time for every tea party activist across the country to consider dropping everything he or she is doing and join us in the most important battle of our life time. We need your energy, commitment, and efforts to make this succeed. We need you to consider coming to Washington during this 3 week period, and if you can’t come to Washington, be part of this project in your local area.”
A nationwide webcast is scheduled for Tuesday, March 9, 2010 with meetings in DC scheduled to begin the following day through March 31, 2010. Logistics are being coordinated for those coming to Washington and daily briefings and reviews are scheduled during the project. It is expected that visits will take place while Congress is in session from Monday through Friday.
The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is an informal federation of thirty local tea parties from around the country who work collaboratively on important national projects. It was the group that organized the February 27, 2009 “Nationwide Chicago Tea Party” in 51 cities around the country that launched the Tea Party Movement, as well as the April 15, 2009 Tax Day Tea Party, where 1 million tea party activists attended events in over 900 cities.
