Advice for the Fellow Tea Party Folks

Bill Smith, Editor: Before sharing the well developed thoughts below by a fellow TEA Party member, let me share some thoughts. Forget California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger who believes that the TEA Party movement is “not going anywhere.” Under his leadership, California is going very far! He may have become a movie star, an American citizen and governor of California, but he reflects too much arrogance in not listening to those who could have been his strongest allies.

We the People (includes me) in the TEA Party have "gone somewhere" in influencing the discussion except with die hard liberals or brain numbed politically arrogant elected officials and staffers. Where Schwarzenegger and others are missing the point is that indeed the people in the TEA Party are angry but they are NOT asking for more Big Government to give them anything except their God given freedom and  liberty and less government. They are screaming:  "Big Government STOP STOP STOP!" Stop wasting money, Stop the excessive spending, Stops the bailouts, Stop trying to control our lives, Stop restricting our freedoms and rights.

However, in advancing our cause, we need to ignore defeatism comments of the Schwarzeneggers. We also must be aware of potential wolves in sheep's clothing seeking to lead us astray. Unfortunately, we must also be cautious of those who are charlatans seeking personal financial gain from the TEA party movement. Finally, we must not be lead along a track that defeats our desired outcomes. Group think and assuming that we can carry the banner of conservatism alone will allow liberalism and Big Government to advance in spite of our efforts. Focus remains the key.

God Bless and Thank You to everyone who gives time and effort to their local or regional TEA Party. Now, please consider the following article by another TEA Party advocate:

by American and Proud:
Here is a little advice for the Tea Party faithful: Know Your JOB!

Your job is to put the fire under the feet of the RINO’s, and so called conservatives. Your job is to use your political clout to make them understand we are fed up with their spending, their disregard for the constitution, their pandering, and their compromising principles for the sake of “Bi-Partisanship”

Your job is to attack relentlessly, the liberal/progressive Democrats to make them understand that the American people are tired of their wealth distribution, tax and spend policies. And that their days are numbered in the office they hold.

Your job is NOT to become a third party. (Yet) We need to put the right “R” or even “D” in place that will uphold the office on the behest of the PEOPLE. Not hold the office at the behest of themselves. A third party at this time guarantee’s a liberal win in most upcoming races. And while I can’t stand the thought of electing another Olympia Snowe, Scott Brown, or John McCain to office the fact is, IF we don’t replace the “D”s or “R”s that have led us to the brink, we will end up off the cliff. In state elections, the candidate represents the people in THAT state, so it was no surprise that Scott Brown was a RINO, he’s at least a MODERATE Democrat who replaced a liberal so it’s a small upgrade. (Trust me it pains me to say it but it’s true.)

Your Job is to make any politician that you helped get elected know that WE ARE WATCHING, and we will campaign twice as hard to remove you if you go back on your promises. AND You will be a one term seat filler.

Your Job is to continue to make liberals' heads explode. Your job is to make our voices heard in the streets, in papers, on blogs, and at the ballot box.

Your job is to heap praise on the CONSERVATIVES (There are a few) that ARE doing the RIGHT thing, they need to be hoisted up as examples and praised when they act responsibly. Your job is to give them public praise and backing when they do the right thing.
