Washington DC Tea Party

Tea Party Patriots Bringing the Conscience of America to Washington DC

Who are these American Patriots?


They are not fair weather stalkers

Nor are they idle talkers


They honor and protect their flag

With zeal and courage that does not lag


They are humbled by, Almighty God

Even until laid beneath the sod


Their family and community virtues

Guide them in their greater world-views


With honor and character, one and all

They stand with pride, straight and tall


They come forth to invoke their liberty

That they and their children may stay free


Their handbook is the Constitution of our great land

As written by our founding fathers with God’s guiding hand


Many have served as first responders and in the military

They all took an oath that they honor and defend, verily


Some, in the course of duty, have paid the ultimate price

Their comrades and family, will never forget their sacrifice


It’s “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” they defend

With great vigor, an honor bound duty of all, to the very end


Defense comes not always at the point of a sharp sword

Often, more effective, is the point of a pen’s written word


Or gathering to speak in public as the Constitution doth allow

To extol successes or discuss failings, in the here and now


Standing up for their Nation’s interests does not terrorists make

But rather patriots honoring their solemn duty, for every ones sake


Fighting for the interests of the great majority to enjoy

And defending against the few who would otherwise employ


Strategies of claiming bigotry and accusing of racist sentiment or worse

To force the people to accept their mores or values, while picking our purse


The Patriots are the ones who help out without any hesitation

They are the backbone and the lifeblood of our great Nation


They are some times taken for granted or otherwise dismissed

Yet they press on with their mission, lest they be remiss


They sometimes have duty thrust upon them as after the 9-11 attack

Family, friends, survivors filling the void, picking up the fallen pack


Patriots ask first, what is best for all the people, not just you or I

They are what, has made America that “Shining City On A Hill”, so high!

A Key To Winning Our Country Back as opposed to "who are these American Patriots"

"Sacred Cows" are not a cut and dry issue of Republicans for DOD, and Democrats for specific programs.  It is much more complex.  Republicans may be vocal about protecting DOD, however, when DOD budgets are submitted both parties have their own sacred "calves" within.  When recommendations to cut the DOD budget are made there must be target programs, bases, equipment, manpower, etc.  And within each of these and the numerous other programs encompassed by DOD, Republicans and Democrats alike have specific portions of each program that they try to protect.  An example would be in 1991 when the fitup was submitted to congress.  One of the issues was closure of So. Weymoth which was open primarily to support one reserve P-3A squadron.  This proposal did not pass the cut theoretically because of a contract with Rayethon for an avionics upgrade to the P-3A.  (The active duty Navy was at this time operating with the P-3C).  The woe is me'ers sited the penalty that would have to be paid to Rayethon for having to cancel this contract.  However, the real reason was a relationship or lobbying that took place between the CO of the reserve squadron and political representatives.  How and where would this CO continue his reserve time in grade?  Another was in the mid '80s when Aviation Warefare attempted to close Bermuda.  Uh, Uh, Uh....again, sacred calves.  The reason provided  was civilian contracts when as was disclosed on 60 minutes, and was well known at the time of submission, the real reason was that Bermuda was a major vacation spot for politicians and their families.  So the issue of one party agree to cut one Cow and another would be more likely to submit to cutting the budget in their pet cow is flawed.  Until "all" personal and political agendas can be put aside for the benefit of all, this is and has been for years a growing stalemate.








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.
