Ladies and Gentlemen,
At the Carson City Tea Party, the one resounding impression I got from anyone to whom I spoke was that we all want to increase our strength and truly create an organized movement. We just do not know how to move forward!
We are the hard-working Americans who make the money to support all the coming socialist programs. We are all frightened of what we see in the future and will do something about it if given the opportunity. Most of us are busy people who simply cannot lend the time necessary to accomplish our goals. We have to make a living! I don't have time to write and read blogs, especially as I have determined that they have run their course of effectiveness. I can not continue to spend hours reading and writing internet chatter. (Even as I take time to write this, my inbox is filling with e-mails that I likely will have no time to read, not to mention respond to.) And, Folks, I think I am the typical thinking American!
We know that a Democratic Rebublic can only persist with a well informed Citizenry. Those of us who have like values and who are now trying desparately to play parts in this movement to save our country are the Informed Citizenry. We do not yet know our potential strength in numbers. The rest of the public have been so dumbed down that they have become the drone-like followers of the neo-socialist movement. We do not know their numbers either. We do however know that they are organized and supported with our tax dollars.
I joined the Patriotic Resistance because they are doing a great job of organizing people on the internet. We are however one of what seems to be hundreds of splinter organizations with like values that need to consolidate. While I believe the internet has been effective to this point, I strongly believe that we need to evolve to a next level if we are to make the required impact. And I think anyone who reads this will agree that time is not on our side.
I have witnessed tremendous dedication among Patriotic Resistance members. There will however be thousands of responses like this one written and posted on various sites like resistnet.com. What I have seen is that most of us who write these "blogs" will not even know if they are read and taken seriously by anyone. These communications will all dilute into one another if we continue down this path. It will in fact be interesting to find out if anyone responds to this rambling message. We need to get beyond this.
As Mr. Bentley who spoke at the Tea Party recognized, something must be done to make it simple and easy for most people to play their parts. We are becoming frustrated with our inability to make a difference. I am willing to be an exception and to go well beyond "simple and easy", as I think many will.
I will dedicate my time to contribute to this new movement. I am willing to participate in real meetings. I am willing to take the next step if someone can tell me what it is. I, like many others, have much to contribute and will do so given the opportunity.
It is unlike me to put forward a problem without providing some solutions. But I am stifled! I am obviously not an organizer, not to mention an activist. I am looking to all of you to provide some fresh ideas. I will try my best to read forthcoming e-mails.
P.S. One mission accomplished: we have all seen by now the disgusting mainstream media response to the Tea Parties. It is wonderful news that they are reacting as expected. We have gotten their attention and they are responding only as liberals know how to by playing down, making fun of and distorting this movement. What they do not yet understand is that their response will only drive their ratings further down, as I think even many of their brain-dead viewers are now questioning the sincerity of the Obama administration and the Federal Govt in general
