Everyone's got "Tea Party Fever" this month, will anything constructive follow?Submitted by MikeLawson on Tue, 04/14/2009 - 12:27
I can't help thinking the tea parties are going to be like "clean the city" day; everyone comes out, picks up some trash, has a picnic and considers the city clean for another year. If they all came out EVERY day, the city would be SPOTLESS, but it's easier to host an event and call it clean than actually clean it. I'm afraid the tea parties are going to be the same way; everyone shows up, listens to some speeches, maybe write a check or two and go home to watch more tv. I'm handing out some stuff to try to keep people motivated, but I'm not feeling overly optimistic. Are we reaching people? Really reaching them? I'm not stopping the fight until we either win or there's no fight left in me, but I've been at this since the late 1980's and I sort of feel like I watched our chance to really wake up the people float by a month or two ago--what happened?
