Happy Birthday to the Tea Party Movement!

Happy Birthday Fellow Tea Party Activists!

 

It was exactly one year ago today – February 27th – that the first ‘organized’ round of tea parties took place across America.  And look how far we’ve come in just one year!

*The government-run heath care push has been stalled and/or stopped countless times.  Obama, Pelosi and Reid have put forth deadline-after-deadline and been forced to walk away sheepishly with their tail between their legs for each failure to advance their push towards socialized medicine.

*Scott Brown’s historic victory over the liberal Democrat establishment in Massachusetts.

*Stopping Congress – thus far – from forcing through the Big Government, junk-science, anti-capitalism fiasco known as Cap-And-Trade.

*The forced resignations of some of Obama’s most radical “czars” including most notably his “Green Jobs Czar,” Van Jones.

*The stunning election results in the governor’s races in New Jersey and Virginia.

*The giant “Townhall” pushback where politicians were finally confronted about their failures, their out-of-control deficit-spending, and big-government programs and push towards a more socialized economy.

*The forced resignations of prominent politicians who were under fire from the tea party movement and in jeopardy of losing their seats – such as Senators Byron Dorgan (D-North Dakota) and Chris Dodd (D-Connecticut).

*Thousands of tea party rallies across America, attracting millions of participants, to challenge the failed political establishments in both the Republican & Democrat parties.  Notable highlights including the April 15, 2009 “Tax Day Tea Parties,” the series of Tea Party Express rallies & cross-country tours, and the 9/12 mass tea party rally in Washington, D.C.

*A victory over the Republican political establishment that nominated a liberal, big-government “RINO” (Republican In Name Only), Dede Scozzafava for Congress in the NY-23 Special Election.  The tea party movement mobilized behind Conservative Doug Hoffman, forcing the GOP to pull their support for their own nominee (Scozzafava), and catapulting a little-known candidate into a national figure who nearly beat the political machines of both the Republican & Democrat parties.

And that’s just a partial list of some of the tea party movement’s accomplishments in one year.

Last week, RNC Chairman Michael Steele sat down with a few dozen tea party activists and held a 4-hour long “summit” to hear the grievances of tea party supporters.

That event in itself should speak volumes about the power of this movement.  A movement born from citizen activism just one-year ago held court with a national party chair for 4-hours, because the voices of the people in this movement proved so powerful that they could not be ignored.
