Happy New Year!
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 Michele Bachmann, 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
We initiated, organized and continue host a national weekly Tea Party radio program
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.
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:
The union-led Recall in Wisconsin is less than two weeks away from the deadline to collect signatures, and reports show that they may have already obtained the amount required to Recall Governor Walker.
The recall effort says that they are close to collecting the 720,000 signatures that they plan on turning in on January 17th.
We traveled across Wisconsin this past summer, holding rallies to defeat the first wave of the union Recalls. This battle, however, is on a much larger scale as MoveOn.org, George Soros, and the OWS movement converge in Madison, Wisconsin to defeat Walker and deliver the first victory of Obamas re-election campaign.

Pingin’ you folks!
(and one state)
Is TPE supporting Ron Paul?
WOO-HOO! GO TEA PARTY EXPRESS!
“Hosted the CNN/Tea Party Express Presidential Debate in Tampa, Florida”
Florida FReepers ROCK!
Of course they are!
After all, he created the Tea Party back in 1954!
Why, you a Paul supporter?
I was there, wish I would have met you!
Walberg has done good for himself, getting his start as one of the New Kids on the Block...
Great pictures, thanks!
Absolutely not. but thanks for letting me know what the TPE is really supporting.
How does the TPE get Pauls support when he says the TEA Party is Corporate owned?
Or is there a “secret” Tea Party we don’t know about?
GRRRRRREAT post, Syncro! It was great to meet you at the TEA PARTY EXPRESS rally in Milford, Michigan this summer. Whew, that was a hot day!
I thought posting that Paul started the tea party in 1954 should show that I was kidding.
It looks like it was a "serious" question.
I don't really think you are that naive, but if that is the way you want to play it, OK.
Sorry, I cannot believe anyone with any knowledge of the Tea Party Movement, the Tea Party Express and Ron Paul could seriously wonder if the TPX supported Ron Paul.
Here's the answer I should have given you.
No, the TPE does not support Ron Paul.
So yes, I guess I could say that there is there a "secret Tea Party we dont know about.
Ron Paul started it in 1773.
And we sure had a fun time in the best of company!
It was a beautiful day there in Milford, nice and sunny and warm.
And a very nice and successful Tea Party Rally!
Synco, tell the TPE to get down to S.C. and stump for Newt ASAP. If Newt doesn’t get S.C. Romney is a done deal. We have to cut him off in S.C. Santorum or Perry can’t do it. Newt is our last hope to save the country. Anyone who can’t see that is whistling past the graveyard.
Thanks. You’re a sweetheart.
Did anybody mention this fact?
OBAMACARE IS A MONOPOLY, AND THEREFORE VIOLATES THE ANTI-TRUST LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
I think we had a good time in Tampa. My 10th Anniversary FreeRepublic hat, compliments of Syncro, made the night! Oh, next to meeting you, Onyx, of course!
No more bailouts
Reduce the size and intrusiveness of government
Stop raising our taxes
Cease out-of-control spending
Bring back American prosperity and jobs
Adding repeal of Dodd/Frank and the just passed NDA Act should be included in our list of principles. Whatcha think?
Yer derned right I am!
I meant to say very humbly, Thank you very much!
