Tea Party, Dade City, Florida

My wife and I were blessed enough to be at our home in Dade City today and decided that since we were home we would spend our day off at a local Tea Party gathering. We had a pretty good sized crowd for a community as small as ours. I would guess somewhere in the neighborhood of 300 or so. More important than the size of the crowd though, was the energy and enthusiasm of those that were there. Both the speakers and the attendees were excited to be there, excited to be involved with a grass roots type movement and ready, willing and able to recruit others to help to promote our agenda. I was certainly pleased with the enthusiasm of everyone and when I am home will absolutely be attending any and all meetups that are planned.

I would just like to take a moment and thank the organizers and all the great speakers that we had. They were certainly enthusiastic, even passionate about the cause and the future of our community, our state and our nation. What a pleasant surprise. We hear on every news station, read in every paper, and hear folks talking in, seemingly everywhere we go, about the continuous demise of our country and sometimes it is just nice to be around some people who don't feel so defeated.

I also learned today that a resolution has been written for introduction to the state house declaring state sovereignty. HM 19, written by Ritch Workman, is a resolution regarding the 10th amendment rights in the U.S. Constitution. This is something all Floridians need to get behind. We need to call our local Reps and State Senators and have them get behind this resolution to get is passed and signed by the (tongue in cheek), "illustrious", Governor Crist.

Finally, it was highly invigorating to see so many young people take such an interest in their future. I can only wish I had taken that much of an interest in my future when I was their age. Maybe, just maybe, our government wouldn't be in the state of near socialism that it is in today had I taken as much of an interest as they have.

In God I Trust
Have a Great Day and a Better Tomorrow
