Tea Party Patriots October Surprise
It is reported that outside Independence Hall when the
Constitutional Convention of 1787 ended, Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin
"Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" With no hesitation whatsoever,
Franklin responded, "A republic, if you can keep it." [http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?et=1102763006460&s=56048&e=001xmxsglFpantchnAJHCze2As1Ew0dNPRh-Vu_RBYPiUYzmbH2P-CGwFJwXngcHWb1nDPtHewqcNHPRb2usIeDRK6KQSgIX0Gw2m-w_oCI91oDmTPKz7gIoC_RQdqDWP6uwncIYklx6dPRYX1Djr8Me1113LEIBwXnqiqeEYg30jsK0rm1k4a8mA==]
In the next few weeks, Tea Party Patriots will challenge
you to keep our republic. It is going to take
effort, energy, time, and commitment. Are you willing to step up to the challenge?
If so, continue reading this newsletter to
find out about our October Surprise. It
is a multi-prong approach that involves protests, faxes, and visits to
Congressional Offices both in DC and at local offices. The focus will be asking
our Senators and
Congressmen to vote NO on government takeover of health care and NO on Cap and
Trade. We will especially focus on
Senators and Congressmen who are on the fence about these bills. Read below to find
out how you can get involved
and help with this effort with step by step action ideas for each day.
In addition to the calls to action, we are pleased to
announce Tea Party Patriots is supporting the movie premiere of Not Evil Just
Wrong this Sunday night at 8:00 pm eastern. Since Tea Party Patriots has taken a
stand against the Cap and Trade
bill, this movie will go along educating Americans about the tax implications
of Cap and Trade.
Finally, Tea Party Patriots has expanded our Board of
Directors 11 people. The new members of
the board are like you. They are
grassroots members of the Tea Party Movement, care passionately about our
country, and support our core values of fiscal responsibility, Constitutionally
limited government, and free markets.
This email is very long and we realize that. The issues are important and some people
prefer to read the email rather than clicking to finish reading on a
website. Please bear with the length of
the email and know that we are doing our very best to help you be well-equipped
Looking forward to working with you in the coming weeks on
our October Surprise,

Last Thursday, in an emergency conference call, nearly 100
national and local Tea Party Patriot organizers around the country unanimously
supported a recent proposal to hold new week long rallies in over 650 cities
around the country. The rallies will target local and national offices of
representatives and senators. Despise concerns expressed about overexposure and
weather, all organizers agreed that we must do this to send a unified message;
"We are still the silent majority and we will hold elected officials
accountable for their votes".
The October Surprise as it is being called
will focus on health care legislation, cap and trade and the November
elections. The October Surprise is intended to get the media saying, my god
they're back, bigger than ever and where are they coming from?
Several approaches were proposed to the rallies which are going to target local
offices for national elected officials. Some will hold drive by rallies and
others will hold sign waving rallies. And in a ploy for media attention one
proposal suggested Patriots camp out on the steps of our elected officials
offices until the vote and encourage them to mark against nationalized health
care. The idea is to work in shifts either via tent and 24/7 for the duration,
or just show up during office hours for the whole day the entire week of Oct
19-23. This extended presence will demonstrate that we have the passion and
give the local media easy access to American's who hold our viewpoint. It is
intended to make the Tea Party message the primary viewpoint for local
audiences as the vote nears.
Tea Party Patriots is a bottom up organization, thus events and dates are
always controlled by the local organizers. Tea Party Patriots simply provides a
unifying voice and theme. To maximize impact National organizers are asking
that events be held beginning around October 17th, 2009 and last through October
25th, 2009 or until the final vote on nationalized health care is held.
Right now to the outside world it seems that the Tea Party movement has burnt
out, but we are not. We are just average American's who go about our business
living our normal lives, we are the silent majority. We follow national events
on television and on the radio so keenly it would appear as if our very
existence depends on it, and in very real ways we know that it does. But
history has proven that we always step up when we are called. And as tired and
frustrated as we are, like a weary soldier in battle we will pull ourselves up
by our bootstraps and continue to fight and continue to BE HEARD. No one said
this was going to be easy and we are prepared to continue the fight.
Along with the October Surprise rallies, many others ideas were proposed. One
that was enthusiastically supported included citizen investigations into
elected officials' campaign contributions using publicly available websites,
public documents and any insider knowledge that can be found. The thought is
that with over 30,000 willing volunteers and a subdued media, we can drum up
better pictures of our elected officials and their motivations than we are
currently getting from the press. The early list of elected officials includes
both republicans and democrats who will have key votes on health care. A
committee was formed to begin training Tea Party Patriot volunteers on how to
use the internet to dig for information and how to share it. Bloggers across
the country are standing by to analyze revelations of importance.
Not Evil Just Wrong
Fall is upon us and in some
parts of the country they have received their first snow fall of the year, which
begs to ask the question, "What happened with Global Warming?" Most already know
about former Vice President Al Gore's movie "An Inconvenient Truth" and how it
explored the issue of global warming. Most also know that Mr. Gore and his
notables in the movie tried to use flawed science to get the point across.
Tea Party Patriots is proud
to announce their welcomed promotion of the film "Not Evil Just Wrong". Ann
McElhinney and Phelem McAleer, two Irish environmental journalists have a made a
film that not only explores the "junk science' behind this debate but shows the
real human toll extreme environmentalism has on society. If you do nothing else
on the issue of Cap and Trade or Global Warming please see this film. It portrays real problems
facing the world today and magnificently probes how some of these issues were
actually created by extreme environmentalists own actions.
Go to the website,
http://www.noteviljustwrong.com/, and sign up to have a local premier of the movie
on October 18, 2009 at 8:00 pm EST. The producers are hoping to set the world
record for most premiers of a single movie in one evening. It will be fun,
educational and a real way to highlight the topic for

Tea Party Patriots Newly Expanded Board
From it's inception, the tea party
movement has been truly a grassroots movement. Immediately after April
15th, The Tea Party Patriots were formed to continue to offer support
and coordination of that movement. From day one, the TPP has been a
movement of the people, for the people and by the people. As we move
forward and begin to plan the organization's activities in the very
important coming year, it is time to reach out and seek the proven
leadership where it exists, in the grassroots all around the nation.
On October 5th we took a huge step
forward by expanding the Board of Directors from three, to eleven
dedicated tea partiers. The people involved come from all walks of
life, and have a broad range of experience in the movement. They are
people who have proved themselves on the ground, in the field, both in
front of and behind the scenes. They are committed and dedicated to
the tea party movement, and to the Tea Party Patriots as the "web" or
the "glue" that binds the movement together and provides a unified
We are proud to announce that effective
October 7, 2009, the Board of Directors of the Tea Party Patriots is
now comprised of the following eleven individuals:
1. Debbie Dooley - GA - firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Mike Gaske - MD - email@example.com
3. Kellen Giuda - NY - firstname.lastname@example.org
4. Ryan Hecker - TX - email@example.com
5. Jenny Beth Martin - GA firstname.lastname@example.org
6. Mark Meckler - CA - email@example.com
7. Rob Neppell - CA - firstname.lastname@example.org
8. Sallie Oljar - WA - email@example.com
9. Diana Reimer - PA - firstname.lastname@example.org
10. Billie Tucker - FL - email@example.com
11. Dawn Wildman - CA - firstname.lastname@example.org
We have listed their emails
here, so that you may reach out and contact them at any time. This
board is your board, and they answer to you, the Tea Party Patriots on
the ground all across the country. Please feel free to engage them
with your ideas, concerns, hopes, and with offers to assist them as
they work to expand into their new roles.
The new Board is beginning work on many
projects, but top on the list is the creation of an Advisory Council to
further expand the input of the grassroots leadership from around the
nation into the operations and strategy of the Tea Party Patriots. If
you are interested in participating, please contact any of the above
individuals. We're looking for folks who have already provided
leadership in the field and can bring that success and experience to
the table in guiding the organization on a go forward basis.
Thanks to everyone who has worked so hard
to make this movement a success, and a special thanks the the eight new
TPP board members.
