you for becoming a Tea Party member. YOU are
making a difference! I would respectively
remind you that tonight's compromise budget
reduction, whether we believe it is enough or
not (and frankly I don't), WOULD NEVER HAVE
HAPPENED WERE IT NOT FOR THE TEA PARTY
MOVEMENT. Without the efforts of this grass
roots movement there would have been no
significant change in Congress in the 2010
elections. Without that AND the continuing
growth and pressure by the Tea
Party, the DISCUSSION would never have taken
place at all, let alone ANY CUT.
growth of the Tea Party has been rapid. The
first major Tea Party rallies were held on April
15, 2009, less than two years ago. Think about
the effect we've had. The growth and influence
of this movement is truly historic! And listen
to me liberals.......we're just warming up.
proud of your involvement. You are the true
American heroes, fighting to preserve the values
that have made our country the greatest in the
history of the planet. The bigger battles lie
ahead. There is little time to rest on our
laurels. We are a long way from our goal of
fiscal sanity. The road will not be easy.
However, we shall prevail for I have
seen the stamina and persistence of fellow tea
partiers dedicated to our goals. We are not
paid activists who are bused to a rally and then
go home and sit on the couch. We are people,
good people, who will not fold or wilt.
proud to stand beside you.

The beauty of the Tea
Party movement is that nobody is paid to attend. We are
there because we care. We care about our children and
grandchildren and the type of country we are leaving
them. We care about the values upon which this nation
was built. Values that are being trashed today. We care
about our Constitution, the greatest governing
document ever written. Help us preserve it!
We have all felt frustrated by what has been
happening with the spending, debt, bail outs,
giveaways. If you are like me you often just scream at
the TV due to the arrogance of what the politicians are
doing. Frustration sets in because you feel powerless
to stop it. The Tea Party movement is a place "where
you are not alone." You can give rise to your concerns
and make a difference. Each one of us, when joined
together, can and will impact elections. We have sat
back far too long. It is time to act!
you..................who? If not
Respectfully and appreciatively,
But a Constitution of Government once changed from
Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost,
is lost forever.
