The July 4th Dallas Tea Party was great; Now What?

Despite a few technical glitches, the Dallas Tea Party July 4th got together over 15,000 patriots in common bond that the direction government is wrong, not fiscally sustainable, and a degradation of our rights and liberties under the Constitution.  Now what?

It is time to take action and that action needs to be aimed at the 2010 elections, primarily legislative.  Incumbents and potential challengers need to be judged- on their deeds whenever possible- as to their support and advocacy for a return to fiscal sanity in government.  It is time to start accessing each race at each level and to determine where to apply the resources of Tea Party to affect positive change.

In our area of North Texas, that will likely take two forms.  The first is to identify those GOP incumbents who talk a good game, but don’t vote that way.  It will also be to identify statewide or nearby races where non-conservative Democrats are vulnerable and can be replaced by strong fiscal conservatives in the general election.

The first step is to gain familiarity with incumbent records and electoral results (to determine vulnerability).  For that purpose, pages containing that data will be developed on this site.  And local meetings will be held to discuss this and plans of action; keep checking back.



##############   UPDATE AGAIN!! ###################

Our Friday has been postponed for now; organizational growing pains involved.  An organizational meeting will be forthcoming soon; stay tuned to  this spot for further details!

Meet us July 4th at Southfork!

UPDATE: A reminder: Parking will be $10 per car but the event itself is free.  Bring coolers, but no alcohol; all coolers will be checked.  Bring chairs, blankets, shade tents, etc.

Michelle Malkin is the key speaker and will be on around 8 pm, but Capt. Scott O’Grady, (hero of the Bosnian conflict; shot down, evading capture for 6 days) will be on in the 7:20pm timeframe.  Bottom line: be sure to be there and settled in by 7pm.  The fireworks display will be fantastic, especially with the minimal light pollution out at South Fork.

Details will be here as they come out, but it will be an evening event with fireworks and live bands.
