I understand that I perhaps have not communicated well enough on the agenda of this organization.  I have in the past stated the agenda and focus of our group on many newsletters, forums, at public relations events, media interviews, and Tea Party meetings yet somehow the words are lost on some people.

 

Let me first begin with some of the general purposes and motivation as to why the Tea Parties even exist in today's environment.  It all goes back a few years ago when both Republicans and Democrats began taking free reign over the constitution and spending with money that we didn't have.  Now some would say that this was TARP and others will say it was Medicare part D and others will say that they have been in this fight since the 1920's social expansion.  Now in the beginning many Americans like myself were willing to give leadership some rope to wage a defensive war and save an economic collapse.  However as with any addiction the money wasn't enough and the spending kept growing.  During the last election the phenom known as Obama swept into office with a liberal majority of Democrats.  Not all Democrats are equal, however a new Socialist trend became abundently clear.  People from all across the nation began to fear the massive expansion and over-reach of the federal government.  These are not baseless fears since in the articles of the Constitution our federal government is restricted from having such power.  Many political grass-roots organizations sprang up and began having rallies and began working to organize in early 2009.  These groups number in the hundreds and possibly in the thousands.  As your regional Coordinator I have attempted to open channels of communtication with the many local groups and four of the national groups. 

 

Again, each group is a singular entity which is inherit to their own problems. However in the last year of organization I have helped to forge a “Colorado Coalition” with liberty and conservative groups. Beginning to unify to fight the really tough battles in legislature and the upcoming elections in 2010 and 2012. A once valued friend of mine once said, “The shear existence of the Tea Parties is an indictment of the Republican Party.” In a recent poll a generic Tea Party candidate receives around 23% of a vote to the 18% of a Republican vote. (Rasm. Dec. Poll)

 

Ok, so people are upset, but what about? In effect it is the Constitution! If you take many of the topics that the groups are upset about it all comes back to the Constitution. Your rights are being taken away little by little and your paying through the nose for all of it at the same time.

 

PHASE 2 begins: Now as a non-partisan group we had to find a way to get our voice heard. Should we go to the Libertarians, Constitution Party, Green Party, Democratic Party or Republican Party to get our voices heard. Really it is none of the Above! We choose not to go to ask for help, we chose to impact the political world. As I have said in past newsletters, “The Battle lines have been drawn!” On one side, the socialist and liberal progressives have taken over the Democratic party forwarding their own agenda. In the last several decades we, as the silent majority have been for the most part silent. This must change. In order to do so we must raise our own “take-over” to fight this battle. We chose to take-over the Republican party as the largest majority party similar enough to our values to combat the Democrats. In our opinion the delicate matters of diplomacy are over. We are on the verge of loosing this nation.

 

Now as far as the mission statement you will find on our site. Lets take a look at it shall we. “Dedicated to holding both Political Parties Accountable. We're Reclaiming our Country, Starting with this County!” Short, simple and to the point. This means in essence if a politician from any party is found to have a strong deviation from the constitution (BOTH FEDERAL AND STATE CONSITUTIONS!!!) , or support needless spending without cause to find the money through budgeting, then we will seek to get that politician removed from office during the next election. We had hoped that this was a simple enough mission statement but I do know that without context it would seem vague.

 

So in my ending remarks I say to you. Is your topic Religion? Read the first amendment. Is your topic Immigration? Read Article 1 section 8. This is a fiscally conservative organization that holds the Constitution to be the Supreme Law of this land. I hope that this has helped many of you. Please let me know if you would like to add anything that I may have missed.

 

Thank you

Our number one weapon in fighting these upcoming battles is the constitution. Without it we are lost. If you do not have one I will order more however they are easy to get and can fit in your pocket. Read it, learn it, live it!
Anyone is free to ask me anything at any time. Just don't start using our website to call people evil. For instance I know beyond any shadow of a doubt that Global Warming is incorrect. However I know that the idea is based upon faulty and corrupted data. That does not make anyone evil. It just makes them incorrect. I have repeated the fact that I have taken the oath to defend our Constitution several times. This should be understood.
(( ... )), Are you serious? "Good..., Bad... I'm the one with the Gun." quote from the Character Ash, played by Bruce Campbell in Army of Darkness. A fantastic movie. But to me honest Randy your really starting to damage my calm.

I have recieved some calls lately from media and student researchers. Just to keep things clear I would like to have this forum visable and easy to find.
I read an article in the USA today that was very fair on the topics of the Tea Party. It was titled "What is the Tea Party? A growing state of Mind". It was a rather long article that covered a wide range of people and ideas but I can provide a quick summary.

Among the many people that were interviewed, many did not quite understand it as a movement and feel like it is more a state of mind. Refering to how people are upset about the current flight of fiscal spending and coming taxation. A narrow demographic of 697 Tea Party supporters was taken with some polling. Top of the Demographic list was that 78% of participants are either Republicans or Independents who lean right and 92% say the federal government debt is a very serious/extrememly serious threat to the nation's future well being.

I will hang onto the article but you can find the link to the USA site here.
