“Be a part of the solution! Join us!”
Serving Lehigh and Northampton Counties
It's only been a week since we last met, and yet, so much has happened in the past week, that I am sure has you feeling over-whelmed and helpless. This is what we have been watching and unfortunately waiting for. What you are seeing is classic Cloward-Piven strategy, overload the system to force the progressive agenda. Watch what the left hand so you don't know what the right hand is doing. Unfortunately for them... We Are Still Watching!!!
Take a deep breath and remember YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
Rahm Emanuel once preached "Never let a serious crisis go to waste..." All the "scandals" that we have heard over the last month, now they are trying to back door "Amnesty". On both the federal and state level, we are seeing Common Core be forced onto our children, Governor Corbett is considering caving on his stance on the Medicaid expansion, not to mention Agenda 21 and Smart Meters! So much going on, it can be nerve wracking, and boy they aren't wasting any time at all!
Now, once again, limited government activists are being beckoned to Washington. I've been contacted by more then a few people to ask if the group will be sponsoring a bus trip. My answer is kind of a good news bad news thing. Unfortunately, I must tell you, NO, the LVTP will not be able to sponsor a bus. With the short time period that we were given, our bylaws do not allow us to spend that kind of money without a full membership vote. No one wishes more then I do that we received this information sooner.
But here is the good news!! I know a member who is looking into renting a van to go down Washington. Now, this is not set in stone, and if this member DOES get a van, and has space- I will let everyone know through an email blast. (SPACE WOULD BE EXTREMELY LIMITED AND YOU WOULD BE EXPECTED TO PAY PART OF THE COST FOR RENTAL AND/OR MILAGE) But that's not all!!!! I've been on the phone all day, looking for buses that are leaving within relative driving distance from our area. The closest buses I found are leaving from New Jersey. I asked their local coordinator to send me their information, which is attached below (These buses are sure things guys!)
But now you're saying, Joan, I just can't get off from work. I know this is super super important stuff. I just don't know what I can do!??!?! Don't fret. I'm going to tell you! First though, let's have a frank discussion... After the marching and protesting is done, we go home, and say, “Well, I've done my part. Can't do much more- with how many people were there, there's no way they could ignore or forget about us.” I've got news for you. They DO ignore us. They DO forget about us. We must ALWAYS make our voices heard. Let's be honest, we need to keep the pressure on, it's what the other side is doing. Why aren't we? It requires YOUR action. The Tea Party is not a social club. We are happy if you come to meetings, we all need to keep learning, we are way behind the learning curve, but lets not forget why we are here... We are trying to protect YOUR individual rights! We can not do this alone. YOU NEED TO DO SOMETHING WITH IT!!! We need YOU to step into action. NOW IS THE TIME!!!! If we loose this battle, the war is almost surely lost. It's time to stop watching at the sidelines....You MUST step up! Click Here to find out how!
On June 7 during our regularly monthly meeting Joan Campbell the chairman of the Lehigh Valley 9/12-Tea Party group read the following letter to our membership.
The letter will be sent certified to our representatives in Congress, the Senate and the press. Approximately 130 of our members have signed this document. If you were unable to sign, please print out this letter, sign it, get your friends to sign it and send it to your congressman and senator.
This is an important time for us as a nation to take a stand. Stand with us! (For a nice copy to print out and sign please CLICK HERE (2 page pdf)
