Entertainer/singer-songwriter/author/writer and all around great guy Lloyd Marcus is one of the most pleasant people you could travel with. And that’s saying something, because as anyone who has spent days or weeks living out of a suitcase with others, after a while small irritations can become sacrifices that you offer up to God.
Now that he’s home and unpacked, Lloyd took some time to write his “after report” about the three weeks spent logging 6,100 miles aboard the Big Red Bus, keeping a smile and a good thought for everyone on board the tour. His columns appear internationally. This morning, it’s published in the Eurasia Review.
Tea Party Express V: A Spiritual Thing – OpEd
Written by: Lloyd Marcus
September 15, 2011
Dear Patriots. I just completed a 17 day national bus tour across America on Tea Party Express V; two rallies per day. We began in Napa, CA and ended with a CNN Republican Presidential Candidates Debate in Tampa, FL.
Our crew included comedian/actors Jim Labriola from the sitcom “Home Improvement” and Victoria Jackson from “Saturday Night Live”. Gold Star mom Debbie Lee shared the story of her decorated son Marc Alan Lee, the first Navy Seal killed in Iraq.
Mr. Constitution, Mike Holler is author of the book “The Constitution Made Easy”. Singer Diana Nagy sang her original song, “Where Freedom Flies” during our military tribute. Talk show host, Radio Patriot, Andrea Shea King spoke and blogged on the tour. Eric Odom is one of the original founders of the Tea Party movement.
