Well, after a hiatus from any party activity, I have returned to the fold. I am reprising my role as Hunt County Coordinator for the Constitution Party of Texas. After getting my dues in order and talking with Bryan Malatesta, the State Chairman, we decided that I should try to stir something up in and around Hunt County.
Since the Texas Tea Party seems to be supporting the Constitution Party, I decided to see if I couldn't find enough common ground in my area to bring the two groups together. At some point in the future, I am going to try to set up a meeting between the CPOT and the Tea Partiers in the area and see if we can't come up with a plan to rattle the cages of the powers that be.
It should be no secret that the CPOT platform is the most conservative and Christian platform ever conceived since the founders did their thing. I am asking all Tea Party people in Texas to please take some time to actually read the platform and see if you can't bring yourselves to actively support the CPOT. We need to get real Christian conservatives who believe in God, family and country. We need people who are willing to throw their hat in the ring and run for local office under the Constitution Party banner. And, of course, CPOT needs dues paying members. Going head to head against the status quo day in and day out costs money. If you are like me, you get a little miffed at all the groups that want to put their hand in your pocket. But I would say to you, there are those that are worthy of your support. Support the CPOT with a paid membership and support the Tea Party by becoming a Guardian. It is money well spent and I know I sleep better knowing I am actively trying to change things for the better, at least from my perspective.
Oh, by the way. Don't worry about those who would tell you that supporting the CPOT is a blow to the Republican Party of Texas. Hell, they need a few good smacks to get them back in line. If enough people abandon the status quo, maybe they will begin to get the idea we are graveyard serious about how we want this country governed and we aren't ready to compromise our principles or honor.
And for those friends and neighbors who are lucky enough to be native Texans, let's show these goonies how Texans handle rascals and no-good politicians. Texans are some of the fiercest patriots around. Maybe we should take time to remember that little fact.
American by Birth, Texan by the Grace of God!
