How to get the neocons to excuse themselves from future Tea Parties.

Drumroll....

Hold Tea Parties with specific themes that neocons can't/won't support.

For example:

A national Tea Party "Bring The Troops Home" rally.

A national Tea Party "End The Drug War" rally.

See where I'm going with this?

We need to show the usurpers that these are OUR rallies

What better way to do this than to have rallies that represent us and OUR objectives.

Comments?

Theme updates:

"End the Fed"
"End the Patriot Act"
"US Out of the United Nations"

This is the most important thing we need to do right

now before it is too late. We have come too far to let these snakes slither in. We need to get ahold of these rally organizers.

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

Yah, It would be nice to drive them out...

or alter their opinions.

I like the ideas in the OP and thread;

the organizing educational idea is End The Fed, and under that umbrella, all of the ideas follow: stop the wars, bring the troops home, end domestic militarization, bring back civil rights, shrink the federal bureaucracy, re-localization.
The tea parties are all about education and rallying citizens. Both the Left, Right, and big mushy middle are all unhappy with the Fed. With good planning we can show how we need to chop off the suffocating tentacles of Big Government.

Since Trevor is promoting his Peace Blimp,

a national "End the War" or "Bring The Troops Home" theme might be an idea PLUS it's a shot across the bow of the neocon's favorite ship, the "USS Perpetual War".

End US Wars and Peace Blimp Events ~-March 20th

On the 20th of March the Peace Blimp plans an anti war fundraiser for the blimp and End US Wars are also having a National anti-war march on the 20th.

I hope there will be a good showing from the RP Liberty movement at this too! The last one there were a few but it was an emergency/short notice rally.

I would love to have some of our Liberty candidates get a speaking spot for the next one..maybe even Ron Paul if we all get on the phone and ask him!! End US Wars wanted RP there at the first one but he had a previous engagement.

I just emailed Trevor.

I think this could be interesting.

If nothing else, people around here have commented about wanting to get out and do some sign waving and make a general nuisance out of themselves again.

; >

I am looking at dates to fly over. Don't know if I can make March 20th in DC but I'll have a look. If I can, I think I'll go.

If not, I might organize an event in my hometown.

This is a great idea. I'm not

This is a great idea. I'm not really hip to jingo-sih themes, but if we were to start singing an anti-war or pro sound money chant, hehe maybe we could win some hearts and minds

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

Right on

Where are the party orgainizers?

It would just be so nice

to ally with people on an issue we can agree on. Stop taxing us to death. Simple message. Why does everything have to fit a huge slate that defines an us vs. them?

I don't want them to stay out. I just want them to stay focused on things we can agree on.

Defend Liberty!

good idea i'm not knocking

good idea i'm not knocking it. here are my thoughts about it. do we really want the gop out of the tea parties? Do we want to splinter the tea party or have them assimilate with us? velvet glove iron fist? Do we want it to seem like we are taking over the tea parties? Do we want it to seem like we are taking over the GOP? We are not taking over the GOP. we want to work within. Sean penn was in a movie called colors with robert duval.penn was the young policeman who wanted to bust up the gangs using any method possible one gang member at a time. whether it was harassing them or ticketing them for jay walking etc. robert duvall tried to more or less earn the gangs respect and friendship. young penn didnt understand the approach and thought duvall was soft. duvall explanined his approach like this. Two bulls were standing on a hill watching thier herd. The younger bull said lets run down grab us one nail it and let the herd stampede. The wiser cow said lets walk down and nail the whole heard. our job is to find common ground with as many tea partiers as possible. we dont want to run any of them off. we should work in the tea partys like we work in the Gop. The neo-cons could use a much heavier hand with the tea parties and the ron paul revolution than they are. They want to build bridges so should we. That seems to be the approach ron and rand paul are taking as well.

ruckmanite, I think you've missed the point.

"Do we want it to seem like we are taking over the tea parties?"

They are our Tea Parties and we can have them on the topic of our choosing. The mere fact they would be Tea Parties means some of the "new" people will show up. They might not even realize ending the Fed isn't a neocon issue.

Like I said to quiltie, this gives neocons the opportunity to step-up or step-off. Those who do decide to step-up are more likely to be receptive to our message. For some of them, a light will go off. For others, it won't, but maybe next time it will. The point is to stay true to the message.

I really don't care about ensuring how well a Tea Party fits into the Republican agenda. I only care they are pro-freedom and pro-Constituution.

Ron Paul "Sign Wave Across the USA" -- November 5th!

These people do not get it

you can't be a small Gov't advocate if you do not change the foreign policy. Plain and simple. It's not rocket science.

E Pluribus Unum

Very good direction

we need to define ourselves now while the hijacking is premature. The longer that the neocon thinking is allowed for grow within the Tea Party Movement the weaker our platform becomes within that movement.

Maybe letting Palin self destruct will bring our Liberty Platform to the next level.

I suggest that we expose her to our goals and if she does not change in a short period of time we separate ourselves from her.

E Pluribus Unum

The Neo-con ideology has

The Neo-con ideology has hijacked our Tea Party just like they did the Republican party. NO MORE TEA PARTIES!

They've won. They destroyed it. Time to move on and expose them and destroy them in the house they have usurped. Burn down the "Tea party" with them inside.

"The United States can pay any debt it has because we can always print money to do that." — Alan Greenspan

Why destroy something when we can lock them out?

Thanks for giving an alternative. Very helpful.

Ron Paul "Sign Wave Across the USA" -- November 5th!

Left and Right Against the Empire!

Yes!! This has been brought up several times over the last year. I think using the 'We Agree' 4 Principles Agreement that Paul, Baldwin, McKinney and Nader agreed on as a 'coalition statement' would be a great starting point for further expanding alliances!

see these threads for some of the ideas:

This is GREAT Belle! Perfect!

Thanks to Michael for the OP.

These should be the issues for Tea Parties, in my humble opinion. Four points cutting like lasers through the BS.

***

We Agree

Foreign Policy: The Iraq War must end as quickly as possible with removal of all our soldiers from the region. We must initiate the return of our soldiers from around the world, including Korea, Japan, Europe and the entire Middle East. We must cease the war propaganda, threats of a blockade and plans for attacks on Iran, nor should we re-ignite the cold war with Russia over Georgia. We must be willing to talk to all countries and offer friendship and trade and travel to all who are willing. We must take off the table the threat of a nuclear first strike against all nations.

Privacy: We must protect the privacy and civil liberties of all persons under US jurisdiction. We must repeal or radically change the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, and the FISA legislation. We must reject the notion and practice of torture, eliminations of habeas corpus, secret tribunals, and secret prisons. We must deny immunity for corporations that spy willingly on the people for the benefit of the government. We must reject the unitary presidency, the illegal use of signing statements and excessive use of executive orders.

The National Debt: We believe that there should be no increase in the national debt. The burden of debt placed on the next generation is unjust and already threatening our economy and the value of our dollar. We must pay our bills as we go along and not unfairly place this burden on a future generation.

The Federal Reserve: We seek a thorough investigation, evaluation and audit of the Federal Reserve System and its cozy relationships with the banking, corporate, and other financial institutions. The arbitrary power to create money and credit out of thin air behind closed doors for the benefit of commercial interests must be ended. There should be no taxpayer bailouts of corporations and no corporate subsidies. Corporations should be aggressively prosecuted for their crimes and frauds.

Ron Paul "Sign Wave Across the USA" -- November 5th!

Yes, I think it's a great agreement

we can use these 4 issues. There's been a few on here the last year trying to get support for this idea.

Here is a thread from fed-up (unfortunatley the forum was being hijacked constantly at the time by a relentless forum slider) but there were some good postings along the lines of Pro-Peace, Pro-civil liberties and Pro-sound money!

Anyway, I have your OP bookmarked so we can continue making action plans along these lines !!

Lisa, this is a GREAT idea,

and I have posted support for your idea on 2 other threads this morning already.

I think you've really NAILED IT with this idea.

The wedge issues will "smoke out" the infiltrators, and they will have to flop one way or the other.
If they flop our way, we have them on record endorsing our policies.
If they flop the other way, they expose themselves as neocon infiltrators.
Either way, we have what we want.
Inclusion, or exposure.

It's brilliant!

Thank you BigT. Weird thing is...

bigmikedude had the same idea at the same time I did.

Seems the universe, like Michael's Capt. Jean-Luc Picard reference, wants us to "Make It So".

Great Idea

Just hope it is not too late.

Balancing the Budget and Restoring Fiscal Sanity....

Means Ending the Empire and Restoring the Republic....

I'd go to that rally :)

I understand the thinking but be careful.

The idea is to draw as many voters to the movement as possible. While a simple platform of issues like bring the troops home would define what we stand for, it would be better to think in terms of converting people rather than rejecting people. We need every vote we can get!

An "End the Fed" rally isn't rejecting people.

It's what we do.

*scratches head*

Ron Paul "Sign Wave Across the USA" -- November 5th!

We're not running a single congressional or senate race here...

And those who want the wars ended are just as numerous as those who seem to think we can balance the budget while having an empire...

To introduce our ideas to people who consider themselves to be on the "left"....

WOW!!!

This is one of BEST ideas I have heard on here in a long time!

This thread needs to go front page and the idea needs to go viral.

Fantastic Idea!!!

Very good idea!
