The Counting Has Stopped, Our “Elected” Officials are Determined
We tea partiers, as fiscal conservatives, small government advocates, and free market supporters, have had a rough two weeks. Now we need to recoup and determine where we go from here. I just spent 4 days in Washington, DC with the national Tea Party Patriots. We spent that time analyzing what has come to pass and brainstorming what needs to be done in the future.
What is very clear is that the liberals have been preparing for this November’s election for six years. The fact is that they created offices and sophisticated social media systems around the country in 2006. These offices and social media programs have not only been maintained but their effectiveness enhanced over the past 6 years — resulting in an almost total victory in 2012 at local, state, and federal levels!
My husband received an email from a friend this week that the tea party failed. His insinuation was the tea party was responsible for the losses because we didn’t do enough. I vehemently disagree! Maybe we didn’t do enough but many tea partiers put their lives on hold for the last two months, touching over 20,000 voters in Palm Beach County alone. If you were one of those people, I thank you from the bottom of my heart! You can take gratification in having given your best in working for change. If you did not help with our Get out the Vote (GOTV) effort, I invite you to help us starting today to dig our way out of this mess!
We only have 23 months to turn things around in the November 1914 elections! The opposition has droves of people looking to promote the big government/entitlement driven agenda.
What is our plan moving forward? First, we are going to take a December break from our monthly meetings. However, we do want to have an Action Planning Meeting on Tuesday, December 4th at 6:30 pm at the Palm Beach Gardens Library. More information to follow.
We will continue to keep you updated on key issues that align with our three tenets of fiscal responsibility, limited government, and free markets. The goal is that each and every one of us have key facts that we can spout when countering our liberal friends. Remember, we want to calmly counter their emotion-charged rhetoric with solid indisputable facts!
To this end, here are a couple of interesting articles:
One last thing, I cannot end this email without making a statement about the recent elections. I solemnly believe that these election results were not the will of the majority of the people who live and work in South Florida!
