Local Tea Party Groups





Understanding the mechanics of how the groups work is the first hurdle in getting folks active. The next hurdle is in getting all the members we have onsite ONTO their state group. The Florida group has 226 members on it, but there are 58 pages of Florida members onsite. That's 21 members per page, or well over 1,000 members.

To find these members, all you need to do is click on the members tab, then look for the rectangular search box in the upper left corner of the page. Type in the two letter abbreviation for your state, FL and you will see how many pages of Florida residents are here. I've tried getting members to find their state groups, but most of them are too couputer & internet illiterate to do so, without being hand-led to the group.

At this point, all I can suggest is that you get some volunteers to do this. It is much too arduous of a task for one person to do. But that is why I have chosen leaders like yourself. You need to find people who have the time, then send them out to draw the sheeple into your fold. This is why we have been posting a link on all new members' comments as they come onto the site, to hopefully get them to join their state groups.

What you need to do is inform your volunteers to how to find members from your state and individually post the following message on their comments boxes. You can highlight, copy and paste the message below and post it on Florida members comment boxes:

• Alan Grayson (D) of Florida's 8th congressional district:
Grayson Floor Speech
Alan Grayson, a wealthy lawyer who spent over $2.6 million in personal funds to win his 2008 congressional campaign, is considered by conservatives too liberal for Florida's 8th district. Grayson has received national ridicule after he introduced legislation called the Paid Vacation Act, which would have the federal government give every family a weeks worth of paid vacation, saying "There’s a reason why Disney World is the happiest place on Earth: The people who go there are on vacation. Honestly, as much as I appreciate this job and as much as I enjoy it, the best days of my life are and always have been the days I’m on vacation." [9] Additionally, Grayson caused controversy when he said that the Republican health care plan is to "Die Quickly." [10]
Real estate developer Armando Gutierrez Jr. is seeking the Republican nomination. [11]

• Florida's 12th congressional district - open seat:
Adam Putnam, considered a rising star in the House Republican leadership, will not seek a sixth term in Congress and instead run for Florida Agriculture Commissioner. Although the district has conservative-leanings, the seat is not guaranteed to stay Republican. Lori Edwards, the supervisor of elections in Polk County, is a Democrat contender, while Republicans have rallied behind former State Representative Dennis Ross.

I don't know that the problem is with the politicians. It is the two party system that causes the issues we are seeing. They are forced to vote on bills they don’t approve of or get looked at as ineffective. Once the party views you as ineffective they will not back any legislation you propose even if it helps their constituents. They have forgotten they we, their constituents, are the sole reason they are there. If we were able to remove the alliances that are caused and even strengthened due to the two party system then we might once again get true leaders there.

Billy - The coalition is formed and as we agree that we will not discriminate against political parties. Our goal is to take back Washington, State, County and Local elections. We will launch a concert in Houston on Jan 2, 2009 and then get people involved to restore our nation.
Comment by Doc on December 17, 2009 at 2:45pm
Bill: I agree with your comments that the Tea Party movement is too fragmented to really do much good. Another thought: What are we going to replace all those "lifetime politicians" with? More of the same, just under a different umbrella? Replacing politicians with politicians, no matter what party the come from, is another step toward failure. I feel that we need to fire each and every one of them, and replace them with value creating, job developing, honest, loving and integrated BUSINESS LEADERS! Turn this government around to the "protection only" that the constitution defines it as, and run it like the honest and loving business it is supposed to be!

Billy - We are all gathering with exception of the Republican controlled groups who has caused most of this fragmentation. We are working on consolidating and setting up a workable structure. The good thing is I'm the founder of the Tea Party and I'm not happy with the behavior of Washington Elite. Our goals is to remove them as quickly as possible. We have a number of Conservative Independent parties that are coming in line and we will affect the 2010 elections.

The 912 Project, Tea Party, GOOOH, Freedom Works, Patriots and many more of break off groups from Tea Party or new ones has us all fragmented in a bunch of groups instead of one group where we can over come as a single Political party. Until we come together or a single group that all us can support we are doomed to failure of a movement that has both the Democrats and Republican concerned. United we overcome divided we fail. I recommend that everyone research the groups that plan on running a candidate for Congress and join that organization. You can still keep your own groups identity but lets start thinking seriously about the 2010 election.

My son who is a banker in Sarasota Fl was invited to the Kaiser College for a dinner last night and one of the attendee’s was a New York Congressman. After the dinner someone ask the Congressman, who was on his 5th term, whether he was running for office. His response yes he was and didn’t have any Democrats running against him, but had 3 others. When ask who they were, he said the one who was running under the Republicans and he intended to donate some money too. When ask whether that candidate was that bad and his response was, “Oh he one of those racial Tea Party people”. The only way we can shut up those now in congress is to defeat them at the ballot box. Maybe we should have sponsored and helped that person who just ran for office as a Conservative in the NY 23rd precinct.

My name is Billy Volner and I live in Mims, Fl. When I was at the 9/12 in DC I found everyone there had the same view and hopes I did about getting the country back on track. Since then I have looked into those groups that wanted to get further involved in the politicial side of the house. One of those groups is GOOOH (go) GET OUT OF OUR HOUSE look them up on GOOOH main purpose is to replace every member in the US House of Representatives. Check it out.

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
