Peter Larocque, columnist in the December 2012 issue of "The Valley Patriot" discusses some possible reasons why the Republican candidates lost in the November election. If you agree with his points, it is worth looking at corrective planning for future elections:
Charles Ormsby, Editor of "The Valley Patriot" wrote in his Op-Ed for the December 2012 edition about the return to slavery under the Obama administration. Read this very provocative opinion piece:
A guest editorial was authored by Betsy McCaughey, former Lt Governor of New York in the "Boston Herald" on Sunday, December 9, 2012 that Obama is overreaching in his quest to grab constitutional rights away from Congress. Ms McCaughey's column is worth the read: http://www.bostonherald.com/news/opinion/op_ed/view/20221209emperor_obama_overreaches/
Obama's idea of fiscal cliff negotiations is to raise taxes on individuals earning more than $200,000/yr and family income in excess of $250,000. It is projected that this increase will take-in $836 billion over 10 years or $86 billion/yr. Realistically this is a drop in the bucket as an attempt to meet the revenue needs, especially when there is no complementary plan to cut spending. "Boston Herald" editorial, December 9, 2012 addresses this plan: http://www.bostonherald.com/news/opinion/editorials/view/20121209counting_tax_chickens/
"Boston Herald" columnist, Michael Graham (December 10, 2012) wrote in his oped that the American press continues to fawn over Obama, never demanding that he respond in an honest way to issues of the day. Michael Graham's piece is worth reading for thought: http://www.bostonherald.com/news/opinion/op_ed/view/20221210press_just_a_pushover_for_prez/

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!

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!
