A local here on the Space Coast sent this out to the Merritt Island, FL 9-12/ tea party movement group. He presents a roadmap for Tea Partiers nationwide. (Boldface emphasis and all accompanying photo illustrations are mine) See if you don’t agree?
We have spent the past year making our voices heard. We have gotten attention that has run the gamut from degrading, to dismissive, and back again. This is encouraging instead of discouraging, because the progressives only degrade those whom they consider a threat to their agenda. When Barbara Boxer suggested her followers have the same enthusiasm as the Tea Party folks, I knew our time has come. I am proud of us. Now comes the question, so what will we do from here? The letters, e-mails, faxes and rallies have gotten our toe in the door, and now we have the chance to tell the truth to the Americans who are wiping the sleepers from their eyes. I have a plan.
The first thing I think needs to happen is a shift in our focus. We have been bombarding the DC elite for long enough. We know they are listening, but now know they feel they have the power to ignore us and carry on, basically flipping us off along the way. That is obviously not where we need to put our energy. It is time for a 3 prong action in different directions.
We need a group to begin a barrage against the media. I don’t know if you have noticed, but even the FOX News commentators have gone soft on the Socialist agenda. They may be playing “Devil’s Advocate” with the probing questions to our supporters, but it comes off as support for the Government plans when they leave the interview with a flippant, “Thanks for your personal take on ….”. This Patriot group needs to make contact with each paper, TV outlet and Radio station. These people need to know where to be for every event. If something impromptu happens, this group of us need to make the call and inform the press. The key here is persistence! No matter how many calls go unanswered, or rallies are ignored, we cannot stop informing them. The best salesman knows the way to sell a product is to repeat the same line no matter what the reluctant buyer says. We also need rallies outside their windows and doors, and that takes me to the 2nd part of the plan.
Time for a rally, rally, rally group!! If location, location, location is the most important thing in real estate, the rally is the most important part of any group that needs to be heard. We need to have people in front of every State Capitol building in this Country! This needs to be a constant flow of patriots! There should never be a day there are not protesters carrying signs, walking around the buildings and keeping this in the eye of America. Are you able bodied? Are you out of work now, or retired? Do you work in a Capitol city? You should join this group!! I propose lunch at the State House! Come every day during your lunch time with a sign and a sandwich!! This group could easily be rotating so there are faces and voices there every day. One of the messages needs to be the States have the power! They need to know we support States Rights and need to use them as an end run around the federal takeover. You do not need a permit to walk on the sidewalks in this Country! I called and asked! Nothing can stop this form of peaceful assembly.
The 3rd area we need to focus on is enlightening the younger generation. This needs a group who are up on all the technology and are able to flood the Internet with the truth. The trick here is to make it appealing to the kids. Find someone to write a cute little diddy to spread our message to the kids yet. The plan I had for it was to make something catchy and light sounding that would get the message into the heads of the kids. I am not a recording artist or a writer, but we need those of us who have those talents to put them to good use, re-educating the youngsters.
The time for introductions is over. The Country knows who we are and now is the time to become a household word! We need to take advantage of the progressive tactics that have only worked against them to make us the underdog in this fight. We need to show the Country that we are their grandma, grandpa, mom, dad, sister, brother. We are all people from all walks of life who just want to live without government interference and oppression. And we want it for every other American too! Time to make some noise!!
WE CAN SEE NOVEMBER FROM HERE!
For a rallying song, how about: “GOD BLESS AMERICA”. Children today probably don’t know it!
