Tea Party Meeting Tomorrow in Coudersport

COUDERSPORT – The Potter County Tea Party will meet tomorrow evening at the Courthouse Square Gazebo in Coudersport at 6:30 pm.

Objectives of the meeting are:

  • Lessons learned by not staying on track
  • Mission Statement
  • Rallies
  • ‘Act locally, but think nationally’
  • Any other issues brought up

George Brown, acting Tea Party President, asks that no one ‘bring any tomatoes or lettuce to throw at [me]’. Brown says that despite personal missteps and minor setbacks they have actually accomplished quite a bit of work.

Brown encourages everyone to bring ‘thoughts and ideas’ to the meeting.

    Eight Unbreakable Rules for Hard-Core Tea Party Activists (or Any Other Special-Interest Coalition)
    by Gary North

    I joined the conservative movement in 1956 when I joined Fred Schwarz’s Christian Anti-Communism Crusade. I wrote an anti-FDR high school term paper in 1958. I supported the Goldwater for Vice President movement in 1960. I voted for Goldwater for President in 1964. I voted for Reagan’s Republican primary gubernatorial challenger in 1966, William Penn Patrick, because I thought Reagan was too liberal. (I was right; he imposed income tax withholding in his first term as governor.) I was Ron Paul’s first research assistant in 1976.

    I am hard core. I have been hard core for a long time.

    I am writing this for those of you who are equally hard core.

    Here are ten facts of American national politics that you must understand to get meaningful change.

    1. You can’t beat something with nothing.
    2. 80% of politicians respond only to two things: (1) fear; (2) pain.
    3. Bureaucrats (tenured) respond only to one thing: budget cuts.
    4. Political reform never comes as long as the tax money flows in.
    5. The #1 goal is to reduce the government’s funds, not re-direct them.
    6. Congress’s club system sucks in 80% of new members by term #2.
    7. Politicians listen to their peers, not to their constituents.
    8. Money from the government buys off most voters.
    9. Most citizens care little about politics and know less.
    10. This gives influence to organized swing-vote blocs.

    The political system was summed up a generation ago by the man I regard as the elder statesman of the hard-core wing of the American conservative movement, M. Stanton Evans: “Evans’s Law of Political Perfidy.”

    When our friends get into power, they aren’t our friends any more.

    To this, I add North’s Law of Partisan Politics:

    When a movement is in either political party’s hip pocket, it will be sat on.

    If you do not believe this, then you are a sheep for the shearing – and then, after several shearings, the roasting. You are on some politician’s menu.
