The "Worcester Telegram and Gazette" ended the year with an article on the political future of the tea party movement in Worcester County. Consistently, patriots agree that they are disappointed with the election outcomes, but are not giving up their goals as we enter 2013: Read the "Worcester T&G" article of Sunday, December 30, 2012:
In the "New York Times" opinion piece dated December 30, 2012, Louis Michael Seidman, constitutional law profession at Georgetown University discusses how it is the U.S. Constitution that continues to obstruct the free flow of ideas and decisions in Washington and is the real culprit behind legislative gridlock. This is a controversial yet interesting concept that deserves review on how the "other side" thinks and rationalizes the liberal/progressive thought process that we may think of as chaotic. Read Seidman's opinion:
Christine Morabito, President of the Greater Boston Tea Party, discusses the new "rich" in her article in "The Valley Patriot", December 2012. The Twin City Tea Party plans to have Christine as our guest speaker in January 2013. Read her excellent article:
The March meeting of the Twin City Tea Party will be held on Monday, March 31, 2014 at 6:30 pm at Cornerstone's Restaurant. This will be our second Candidates Night where we will endeavor to bring many of our candidates together to introduce themselves to our attendees as well as meet and greet the Tea Party group. The Cornerstone Restaurant is located at 616 Central Street (Rt 12). The Twin City Tea Party is non-partisan. All are welcome to attend. There are no costs, dues or fees to attend.
Annual Tax Day Joint Tea Party Rally in Boston at the Boston Commons, Sunday, April 13. Save the date, more information to follow. This will be a united rally with Boston and the Worcester Tea Party in great attendance.
As was discussed and voted on in our May and June 2013 meetings, the Twin City Tea Party purchased and donated several children's books to five local City/Town public libraries. Leominster, Fitchburg, Townsend, Sterling and Westminster all received the two book sets written by children's author, Amelia Hamilton. We are encouraging our little patriots and their parents to enjoy learning about our Nation and our founding fathers at an early age. Happy Reading to all!
Don't Tread on Me!
The Johnny Appleseed Festival that was held on Saturday, September 28 was a great success for the TCTP. We were busy all day, met hundreds of folks who were interested in our message and received great support from our members. Attendance at festivals and civic events is one very important way of getting our message and the truth about government out. Thank you all sincerely for your participation and help!
Don't Tread on Me!
