This old man has been waiting for positive news about what the Tea Parties have been doing for quite some time. After the Tea Parties demonstrated their enormous power in the 2010 elections, it seems that news of their continued activities dried up. Fellow bloggers have told me not to worry; that the Tea parties were busy working at the local and state level. Still I was not satisfied. It is hard on those of us who live outside of the US when there is no news. We don’t have face to face dealings with Americans every day and we don’t see the local news stories that might carry information on local Tea Party activities. So, I was delighted when I read Doug Mainwaring‘s article this morning at American Thinker.
What is especially exciting to me is that Doug is reporting on the successful in roads being made by the Tea Parties in the deeply blue state of Maryland. Please read Doug’s article. I think you will be as impressed as I am of the many in roads Maryland’s Tea Parties are making on so many fronts. The level of organization they have achieved is incredible. If what they are doing in Maryland is indicative of what is happening in other states, there really is hope for America. Taking control of the Republican party at the city, county and state level is the key. It will take several election cycles to get there; but once achieved, conservatives will have much more success on the national level.
I have a favor to ask of you, dear readers. If you have news of Tea Party successes in your community or state, share it here today in the comment section and from time to time, blog about what is going on with the Tea Parties in your part of the country. One thing I learned during my years in the business world is that when things are not going well and people have low morale, a good manager will look for some project or projects, however small, where there is a high likelihood of success. He/she does this because they know that nothing breeds success like success. But, if news of that success doesn’t get out, it won’t breed. When the Tea Parties achieve something on the national level, like the recent defeat of RINO, Richard Luger, in Indiana, it does make the news and that is good. Local achievements, however, don’t make the news. So, if you want the to breed the local successes in you area, blog about once in a while. Your readers in other communities and other states who are Tea Party activist will get encouraged and motivated to emulate that success.
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
