It looks like this blog was started to look in to the validity of our organization. First of all I want to thank those that are skeptical when looking at organizations of the tea party movement. The more these things are checked on and verified, the better for the movement. We are a national nonprofit 501 c4 organization for the tea party movement. All our records are public and you can see that the majority of the donations taken in go right back out to promote and recruit for the tea party movement. Our opponents are set on destroying our movement because of the successes we have achieved at the ballot box and other efforts. In a nutshell, our movement is about limited government, free markets, following the original US Constitution as the founding fathers intended and individual responsibility. We welcome anyone in to our movement from all races, creeds, colors, backgrounds and political parties that support these same core American principles.
When you are a conservative minded group, I have found that the liberal media views you as an enemy and will look to attack you without any basis if they think they can hurt you in any way. I am just an average middle America dad trying to do what I see best for my country and my family. I never thought the liberals and liberal media would go after a non celebrity like me, but they do. It will not stop us though. In fact it does the opposite and makes us even more determined to help save this country.
To get more specifics on our organization and the tea party movement in general, go to our website of www.theteaparty.net. We have specific information on what donations are used for, what the tea party movement is about and much more. Every tool on the website is free to anyone that wants to get involved in the movement. Free tea party websites, free blog, free newsletter, free event information, free online register to vote, etc. We are funded 100% by voluntary donations from those willing to give to support the tea party movement. Moms, dads, grandma's, grandpa's donate. Our average donation amount is about $50. We invest the majority of our donations to recruit as many Americans to the tea party movement as possible and educate them on the movement and events. We aggressively market the movement in places such as Fox News, Drudge Report, Google, Newsmax and more. This helps us average about 15,000 new people every week that join the tea party movement through our website. We also provide some donors who donate $100 or more tea party items when they donate free of charge.
We also have used donations for events like our bus tour for 9/12 last year that started with senate candidate in Nevada Sharron Angle and ended at the US Capitol on 9/12. We were also one of the largest sponsors at CPAC this year in Washington DC where we had a booth and lots of behind the scenes involvement with conservatives at the annual convention. We are currently planning more events including a town hall meeting with republicans prior to the Iowa caucus and even involvement in co sponsoring republican presidential debates.
Anyway, I hope now you see that our organization and my personal motives are sincere to helping the tea party movement. I am a father of two little girls and felt compelled to start an organization to help my country and my girls in the process. I hope you will all be compelled to do the same as I did.
I invite any of you still skeptical to visit our website of www.theteaparty.net and sign up for the free newsletter, event calendar, websites and more. Remember, 90% who join, join without donating a cent and those 10% who are able to donate are very much appreciated. Our liberal opponents are well funded and we have to stay in the media as much as possible to combat their unfounded attacks on the tea party movement and liberty in general. I am confident when you get involved with us on a day to day basis that you will see that our motives are sincere in helping this country.
Thank you all for inquiring and God Bless.
"We also have used donations for events like our bus tour for 9/12 last year that started with senate candidate in Nevada Sharron Angle and ended at the US Capitol on 9/12."Could you tell us a little more about your bus tour last year?
Some links of news reports would be helpful.
Those numbers are hard to believe. 15,000 per week? You're talking about hundreds of thousands if not millions of people. Or are you exaggerating a bit?
