I am aware of concerns and confusion about an apparent alignment of Grassroots in Nebraska with the Republican Party and AFP (Americans for Prosperity) to organize a Tea Party event on April 15. Please be assured that Grassroots in Nebraska will stay committed to being a truly grassroots group of Nebraska citizens committed to a return to a Constitutional, limited government. When we organize a Tea Party, we will abide by the no political party, no politician policy we’ve had since the beginning.
It has always been a point of principle that there will no affiliation of Grassroots in Nebraska as a group with a political party, and of course, no endorsement of a political party organizing a tea party. Further, there is agreement by the core, most active members of this group that it is impossible to align with AFP based on nearly a year’s worth of both dealing directly with and observing the conduct of that organization locally. For anyone who is not aware of the reasoning behind this position, we will be providing additional details in the next few days via email and website posts.
The Republican Party of Lancaster County, AFP Nebraska, and a handful of individuals are attempting to hijack and crush our event and group. There can be NO other interpretation.
