When the First Coast Tea Party aligned with Liberty Central in Washington DC we had no idea how out of touch DC was with the American people. We are learning "how things work in DC" and they are hearing from We the People out here in America. What we learned: Politicians are disconnected, out of touch, living in a fantasy world and totally ignorant of how their legislation and regulation is impacting us. What Liberty Central learned about We the People: We are hurting, we are tired, we are taxed to death, we are fearful and we are looking for ways to wake up our political servants and find a way for them to hear us.
Together we will find a way to mesh real Americans with their Government.
The founder of Liberty Central, Ginni Thomas, has a great big heart for the people and while she has lived in DC for over 30 years and has been under the microscope of political power struggles, she connects to the tea party people. It’s good to have a friend in DC and one who can help us understand the workings of political maneuvers and connect us to the right people on legislative issues.
This week Ginni was interviewed by Newsmax and we hope you will get to know her better. Check out the video of Ginni talking about tyranny in America today at http://firstcoastteaparty.ning.com/video/ginni-thomas-talks-about
Also, an article by The First Coast Tea Party was published at LibertyCentral.org today entitled “We the People Go to Washington.” Check it out and we encourage you to lend your own thoughts in the comments section at http://www.libertycentral.org/we-the-people-go-to-washington-2010-06
Regarding Financial Reform Bill: We are working with Liberty Central to help us find our way into this bill that is presently in conference. This is a horrible bill and one that the media has not paid much attention to. This is the same one where golden-boy Scott Brown showed his true colors and voted with the Dems to ensure it's passage. We send Scott a great big “THANKS A LOT SCOTT FOR NOTHING” and encourage you to contact him and do the same.
We will report in on the Financial Reform bill in the next few days. Congress is on recess and life is good while they are away.
