2011 Year in Review
Another year in the books!
We were so busy in 2011 that it seems like a blur that flew by. At a time when the mainstream media keeps pushing the notion that the Tea Party is losing its influence, I think that it is important to look back on all that you and I accomplished in 2011. We can be very proud of all that we have done and use it as motivation to fight for Tea Party values in 2012.
Here are some of the highlights of 2011:
Organized the first Tea Party response, by Michelle Bachman, to the State of the Union.
Helped launch the first meeting of the U.S. Senate Tea Party Caucus
Conducted the first Tea Party Townhall in Washington with Tea Party Senators and Congressman
Conducted a Wisconsin state bus tour to defeat big unions attempt to take control of the Wisconsin Senate by recalling conservatives. We defeated the unions and kept control of the Senate
Successfully defended Justice Prosser and defeated liberal attempts to take over the Wisconsin Supreme Court
Conducted our 5th coast-to-coast national bus tour to give presidential candidates a chance to make their case to Tea Party activists
Hosted the CNN/Tea Party Express Presidential Debate in Tampa, Florida
Petitioned Congress and kept the pressure on them to adhere to Tea Party principles
Thanks to your dedication, passion and generous support, together we were able to make a real difference in the political landscape of this country in 2011.
As the Tea Party says goodbye to 2011 and we enter into 2012 strong and unified, we must remember all that we have done together and remain unified. Our power and influence scares the political establishment on both sides of the isle, the mainstream media and the business-as-usual crowd – that is why they attack and try to discredit us!
2012 is going to bring the election and fight that we have all been preparing and waiting for and we need your continued support.
In 2012, we here at the Tea Party Express are committed to work our hardest to defend Governor Walker against the union-led recall, to maintain control of the House, to take control of the Senate, and to make Obama a one-term President!
We here at the Tea Party Express will continue to be guided by our motto of “Restore Liberty-Honor the Constitution” and our 6 basic principles:
- No more bailouts
- Reduce the size and intrusiveness of government
- Stop raising our taxes
- Repeal Obamacare
- Cease out-of-control spending
- Bring back American prosperity and jobs
