I would add the suggestion that all Internet TP users make as good use of their printers, telephones, and coffee pots as possible for copied, phone relayed and face-to-face conversations.
Great use of the new in your notice below, good crossover with strong existing infrastructure;
add a pinch of keep the old and feels like continued progress to me.
No child left behind did not work as expected.
Change we can believe in is still fragile and not from the source that promised it.
The Tea Party needs to remain inclusive to any level of communication and vigilant to see if any citizen is missing from the discussion.

A message to all members of TeaParty.org
Several TP members are wanting to figure out a way to reach NON-Internet users. Here is my answer I am sharing with everyone.
First of all, without Internet access it will be very difficult to contact people. The TP was created around the Internet and social marketing.
However, the staff of TPorg is working on a 3 prong plan to address this issue. Nothing is cut in stone yet, this is ONLY a discussion.
1. we are working with a major processing house to hammer out a direct method to reach tens of millions of non-Internet people. Once/if this takes form, then people can join the educational mailer system by sending us a note, BUT not until it is in place.
2. Dale, and his staff are accomplished speakers. We can make a tour though the Bible belt or any location speaking at Churches of all denominations about God and Country w/o being theologically dogmatic. Also, clubs and Non-Profit organizations.
3.We will encourage people who are not Internet connected to go to their library's and take a Internet basic class (which all the libraries have) and then use the Internet at the public library's. TP chapters can sponsor this as part of their mission. Kool huh!
Do you have any more ideas? We are open and willing to listen!

OBTW - Dale and his staff will be in Washington D.C. this coming week meeting with several high profile leaders. We are expecting some exciting news within a week or so.....(NO, we are not going to join the Elephant or Jack-ass party!)
