Constitution, Conviction, Common Sense

August 5th Meeting – Speakers: Hurt & Goodlatte

Dear Lynchburg Tea Party Patriots,

We hope all of you have had a chance to enjoy a little summertime.  The heat as been oppressive and exhausting to work in, but Patriots those that would destroy our nation have not taken a break.  They have been relentless, and now they have turned their efforts to YOU.  Our old buddy Tim Kaine, DNC Chairman, has announced one aspect of the democrat strategy to defend their continued attacks on what is left of American freedom and liberty.  This strategy is to ATTACK the Tea Party movement by reinforcing their false message through the media outlets they control to convince the uniformed that the Tea Party and the GOP are one in the same.  They believe they will inspire Tea Party members to fully reject anything GOP, and the GOP to reject anything Tea Party.  Keep in mind this is a strategy designed to “divide and conquer” not just the Tea Party movement, but the GOP as well.  Do NOT fear the “tactic” they are using.  It is a sign that we are WINNING!  Just because you lie loud and often does not make your lie the truth.  They will do and say almost anything to demoralize us, demean us, and destroy us.  They do NOT comprehend the independent spirit of the Tea Party Patriots, and they are attempting to define you as something you are not.  They don’t understand the Tea Party attitude toward the Republic we love, and I doubt they will until they wake up one morning without any freedom left.  We must stop this.
Rush Limbaugh has been saying for some time now, that unlike the old movie westerns, in this case the cavalry is NOT going to come riding over the hill.  WE ARE THE CAVALRY!  You are needed, please respond to the call of Liberty and Freedom!

    Wow, now THAT is some real openness and transparency. Haven’t the tea parties been demanding this of others? Hurt’s campaign has been hiding all along, and now the LTP is assisting him. Way to go!

      In what way has the media been a friend to the tea party? In NO WAY is the answer to that. We are called Racists. Terrorists. Etc. There will be cameras there. OURS!

        The comment wasn’t about the media response to the tea parties. It’s about being hypocritical. It’s also about this meeting, sponsored by the tea party, helping to accommodate Hurt in his “shadowy campaign” candidacy.

    I am a little confused about the rules. How will you be deciding who can come and who can’t. Will we be going by the Tea Party email list – or just turning people away at the door? Do we have to buy tickets in advance?

    I haven’t been at every meeting but I am interested in hearing what Sen. Hurt has to say. I have called his office many times to find out where he is going to be, but they won’t give me specifics.

    Also, can I bring a friend?

      The announcment does not say “Lynchburg Tea Party ‘members’ ” so if you consider yourself a participant in the TP then come and bring a friend.

    Will you be checking ID at the door for Tea Party members only? Are we able to bring our spouse if they are not a paid up member?

    • Lynchburg Tea Party July 29, 2010 at 11:21 pm #

      I’ve asked mark to craft a clarification for you and others. Bring your spouse by all means.

    Go to my website for this week’s Tea Time radio spots. We may soon have another 200 stations on board. Thursday evening. I’ll have Tea Party tee shirts and “How’s that hopey-changey thing working out for you?” bumper stickers. To our liberal competition I say, “Be afraid. Be very afraid.” Oh, and I’m donating a PA, speakers and mike to the Lynchburg Tea Party. We need one often!

    You complain about unfair treatment by the media and lies being spread by the Democrats via the media. Maybe the logical way to counter that and to get your point across is to allow the media to cover your events. State your case honestly and you may be pleasantly suprised by the coverage you receive. I mean all the media, not just the Fox News people who are going to agree with you anyway. Closing your meeetings gives the impression that you have something to hide, which isn’t good for increasing membership and raising funds to support your platform. If the room is too small, get a larger one.

    This looks very bad. People are looking for honest and open government and this will surely cost you votes. What do you have to hide? If its nothing, then open it up the way it should be. We’ve had enough of government behind closed doors in the current administration. Now you’re acting just like them. Bad idea.
