BSJones--Let me see if I can enlighten you and answer your questions about the goals of the tea parties.

The goal was just to show up and see if anyone else would show up with us. I live in a rural area of Texas and sometimes feel like I'm the only one ranting in the dark. Twitter, Smart Girl Politics and other social media sites have allowed me to meet other like minded, disgruntled conservatives. Let's not forget that 46% of Americans did not vote for Obama. Yet we are being told to embrace his presidency and plans for our future. Very few of us were McCain lovers. Most of us were Palin lovers. Most of us were very disgusted with the last couple of years of Bush's presidency. The point of the tea party was to get together and see who would show up with us.

This was not a Republican assembly. There were Republicans there, for sure. But there were many libertarians, constitutionalists and just plain conservatives at the Houston gathering. We have not found the ideal presidential candidate to rally behind. We have, however, put our elected representatives on notice that we are paying attention to what they are doing and we are angry with them for voting for TARP, Stimulus and bailout packages for irresponsible businesses and people. The sleeping giant has awakened, and it is pissed.

Regarding your question about the police. They were there at the Houston Tea Party. Several came and told us privately that they supported what we were doing. There was no riot gear, and no angry counter-protests. It was a very positive experience and I'm glad my daughter was with me that day.

Hope that clears a few things up for you.

When we get our act together, you'll grace us with your presence? I don't think so.

I was at the Houston Tea Party today. I drove 4 hours each way to attend. It was truly encouraging to see the 500 people that showed up. There was no big named speaker--there was no big budget--there wasn't even a band, but there was plenty of enthusiasm for this truly grassroots movement and the opportunity to express our displeasure with the current administration and congressional leaders. We talked, exchanged business cards and plotted out future events. For you to poo-poo the hard work of the three extraordinary people (Felicia, Chealsea & Josh) that busted their backside to pull this gathering off in 6 days is repulsive.

Your elitism and snobbish attitude is not welcome at our party, sir. Let me assure you that when we do have money and are better organized, we will have no need for the likes of you.
