Grassroots Teaparty Efforts and You

clibertyc-facebook-logoOpen letter to all my Grassroots Friends and Activists,

My strong recommendation to all involved is to be sure that your teaparty effort stays grassroots and nonpartisan. We need to cut government and taxes big time and get back to our constitutional roots. Many would like to co-opt the movement and call it their own, but no one owns us!

I am working with a group of concerned citizens around the country and want to guide you to a couple of tiny little grassroots efforts with huge implications. Please visit Constitutional Liberty Coalition on wordpress and also on facebook to find other state leaders committed to the same goals.

We formed as a group when we saw top down techniques being used in what we thought was a collaborative effort. Then we did the research and found that globalist Newt Gingrich was being promoted as our leader and web pages directing shared lists and fundraising around his organization. We purposed to not drive traffic to the national website for that reason and will do everything in our power to keep the movement safe in local hands. But you will have to be vigilant and help. Groups are welcome to help and promote to their own lists and attend and participate. Glenn Beck is now promoting the movement as well, but he is not asking for your lists and money and is to be commended for that. We hope that continues!

Another page is on facebook in draft format if you want to create a state page separate from the list in CLC above you are invited to see Taxcut Teaparty (Draft at present) on facebook or create your own. We are happy to help any way we can and fully supportive of your efforts for the people to have a voice!

Another resource for you is a grassroots primer that I helped with, but Shelli Dawdy took to finished format. Please read and study Grassroots 101 and share with everyone you know with questions about matters at hand!

For Life and Liberty,

[Note: I have been a grassroots activist for over 30 years and I assure you there is nothing new about what we are seeing the paid professionals do surrounding the teaparty effort. Your time, talent, treasure is desired for their efforts and they may not share your goals for liberty. You be the judge and be wise as serpents and gentle as doves in the process.]

Some interesting links on bailout supporters (2008) who now want to be our grassroots teaparty leaders (I rather doubt that will fly on twitter or in river city either!):

  1. Sandie, I was surprised when I did some research of my own on the Tax Day Tea Parties sponsoring groups for my article, “The Meaning of the Tax Day Tea Parties” at

    The surprise was that Newt Gringrich is so thoroughly integrated with the two leading organizations promoting Tax Day Tea Parties: (1); and (2) American Family Association. Both organizations have videos on their websites featuring Gingrich “partnering with” or “speaking on behalf of” these organizations.

  2. I sent a broadcast warning out to my people yesterday – Newt is not the only usurper, just the only major personality at the national level; local and state personalities are also pushing for power positions. At what point such intrusions are welcome or dangerous is unclear to me.

    Patriots For America/Constitutional Emergency (Col. Riley) has already endorsed Gingrich’s de facto leadership over his network!

  3. Glad you found out, and posted this. I originally thought the whole tea party movement was a fraud after seeing the co-opting going on. My main fear was that the movement toward liberty would be coopted by statist neocons, and people who were just mad that Obama won, and the undermining that was going on helped feed that fear.
    I still don’t think the tea parties are the best idea, but it is definitely attracting a lot more people than I’ve ever seen for something like this. It is my understanding that nothing political may come from this (“let them protest, as long as they keep paying taxes” quote comes to mind), but it is a great educational opportunity, and an ability to direct and focus the vague anger people have been feeling right back at the government.

    I hope this does not fizzle out.

  4. Neocon shills like Newt and TX Governor Gardasil (Rick Perry) have co-opted OUR movement. WE had this idea and had humongous tea parties on Dec. 16, 2007.

    And Glenn Beck or Bunk as I so lovingly refer to him, is no friend to liberty. He says one thing in the morning and does a 180 the same day, here’s the video to prove it:

    The best thing you can do is go to post offices and give copies of America: Freedom to Fascism and this:

    If you go to your respective tea party, please get copies of the Obama Deception and pass those out as well: We gave out at least 100 copies at one of the organizational meetings and people were very encouraged just by hearing the title.

    The thing these people are missing is the part about the Federal Reserve. Try to educate them. Maybe have copies of Fiat Empire of The Money Masters.
