Now that Sarah Palin has kicked off the Tea Party for 2010 via her February speech at the Tea Party Convention in Nashville, and the CPAC speeches are done, it’s time to get organized!
In that vein, RedState announced today that it is teaming up with American Majority and Smart Girl Politics for some post-party summits.
“…At a time when Americans are losing their allegiance to political parties for the sake of parties, we’re focusing more and more on ideas and ideals.”, Erick Erickson stated. This is exactly what Sarah Palin has said time and again: to pledge our allegiance not to the cult of personalities, but to ideas. Palin herself has refrained from presenting herself as the leader of the Tea Party.
To move forward we need to focus not only on ideas but we need also be in learning mode. How long has it been since we have paid attention to our civic duty, voting and jury duty aside? To paraphrase Erickson, ‘It is not enough to stand on the sideline, it is not enough to protest. We each of us, must invest our time in learning how to implement freedom and liberty on the ground in our own communities.‘ As the alarm coming from America’s heartland breeches “red alert”, it is fast becoming our civic duty to respond to the ever-increasing, ever encroaching socialist agenda being driven down our throats from Washington DC.
We as conservatives, moderates, independents — anyone who takes umbrage with the Washington agenda that is a threat to our freedom — can successfully train and work together to retake our communities and lead them forward with principles of limited government, individual freedom and the free market. This won’t happen by itself. As important as the brownie and the scouting and all the other over scheduled places we need to be, at this moment of our lives we need to put time aside for becoming actively involved in the process of reclaiming our communities, our schools and our government.
American Majority is gearing up with training dates and locations where you may register for an event in your region. These training events are beginning or in the planning stages across America. If you have any questions about the training offered, the organizations behind the events, or other questions please contact the American Majority team.
The ground wave rolling forth across this great land that began as the Tea Parties of 2009 has moved onto the next stage. It may seem as if the tea parties movement has withered and dispersed but no, we are now going about the business of learning how to effectively regain our beloved America. We are now at the place on the tarmac where we team up, collaborate, and work together to win the race.
