From the TPP's national leadership team....
Dear Fellow Tea Party Patriots,
Tea Party Patriots had our final stop in the Farmer Relief and Freedom Relay in Fresno, California. We had roughly 33 stops in 2 weeks around the country.
During these stops we raised awareness about the Copenhagen Climate Summit, the Cap and Trade vote in the Senate, and the water issues in the Central Valley of California. Besides only raising awareness, we also raised donations for the Farmers on Central Valley. We raised approximately $15,000 in cash donations to Saving the Valley, hundreds more in gift cards, and truckloads of canned foods and clothing.
You can click to watch a video recap of Sunday's closing event. We will have more links added to our website next week.
As you watch this video, realize what a difference you are making. You have made a difference in the lives of these farmers. You have made a difference to the local coordinators in California who have felt alone in their struggle. You have made a difference in lives of others around the country as they have seen how united we will work together to further our core values.
As the Relay was ending, we began to learn about the climate change cover-up. We are learning more and more that this is another tactic to increase taxes and take more control our lives. Senators are beginning to call for a Congressional nvestigation into this scandal. Watch for action alerts in coming weeks as we continue to work together to ask Congress to vote no on Cap and Trade and to turn the water in California back on.
Health Care will heat up again next week in the Senate.
The National Coordinator Team is working with Local Coordinators from around the country on what our next actions will be. We know Congress can hear us now but they are choosing not to listen. So, we are thinking outside the box. We have taken into account many of the ideas you have given us in the past few weeks. Watch for action alerts in coming days about what we are doing next.
As Thanksgiving draws near, we want to thank each and everyone of you for standing shoulder to shoulder with Americans from around the country to make our voices heard! You are the heart and soul of the tea party movement. As we give thanks tomorrow, the National Coordinators will be thankful to each of you for joining this movement and working to protect the future of our country. Thank you!!
You are the heart and soul of the Tea Party Movement. Thank you for promoting the causes of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets with us!
Your Tea Party Patriots National Coordinator Team,
Debbie Dooley, Mike Gaske, Kellen Giuda, Ryan Hecker, Jenny Beth Martin, Mark Meckler, Sally Oljar, Diana Reimer, Billie Tucker, and Dawn Wildman
