Rick Santelli’s Rant in February 2009 set the Tea Party in motion. Little did he know that his anger about the bailouts would fuel this movement and forever change the landscape of politics? Even Rick himself was surprised by the reaction to his rant.
Yesterday he was at it again and his message resonates with those of us in America who are sick and tired of the out of control spending going on in our Federal, State and Local governments. We the People are tired of leaders who blame and defend their out of control spending versus looking at real change and doing the hard stuff.
November 2 is coming and we want to help make changes to a more conservative approach to liberty and freedom for all. Once you owe money to someone or some country – your liberties are hindered and that means we have one job to do – “Get out of debt and regain our standing in the world.” We can do it with change in America on November 2nd.
The First Coast Tea Party asked a team of tea party members to put together a Candidate Questionnaire that aligns with our Mission and Beliefs. That questionnaire will be sent to all candidates running for office from the Governor’s race all the way down to our local races. It will be sent to Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians and anyone who is officially on the ballot. Once the questionnaires are returned, we will decide which ones will be invited to our office for personal interviews based on their answers. Personal interviews, investigation into candidate’s backgrounds and review of their character traits will be taken into account and relayed to you. A formal document will be published on all candidates so you can make an informed decision.
If you have any information about candidates that you feel is valuable to add to our data, please feel free to send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is your tea party and your data is important to securing all the information necessary to become an informed voter.
Watch Rick here as he once again speaks his mind and ours too!
