There were a load of good ideas and a lot of inspiration yesterday. Reverend Wayne Perryman's speech highlighted the abject failure of many government-run programs and departments, asking the President, what will you put on the government's resume when it applies for the job of health care insurer? It was also BRILLIANT!
I hope everyone had a good time! I forgot to put sunscreen on and got fried, but it was worth it. I had a blast!
Remember, the Tea Parties are only the very first step. It matters greatly what you do in between these moments. Write letters, make phone calls, print out flyers and go stand in front of the grocery store and hand them out or walk around your neighborhood to talk with your neighbors, get people to sign petitions, etc. These all need to be happening in between Tea Parties because the politicians obviously aren't listening. It's time we try to change the minds of our friends and neighbors instead/as well.
We gave out lots of pink slips for people to send to our "nonrepresenting representatives!" Code Pinko would have been proud. We had a life size, shiny pink slip signed by "the people." Maybe we should deliver it to Dave Reichert's office on Tuesday...
Have a wonderful Sunday afternoon and give yourselves a pat on the back for yesterday. Don't forget to check out www.teapartywa.org for 4th of July Tea Party locations!!!
