Broward Tea Party April, 2012 Newsletter

“On Matters of Principle…Stand Like A Rock”

                                                                                                                                                – Thomas Jefferson

April 4th  Meeting Recap


Cofounder Charles Robertson:

Presented part 2 of his “Selling the Tea Party” series (please read part 1 and 2 of his series here on the BTP Wordpress blog site under Recent Posts). Our job is to promote our “3 Core Values: Constitutionally Limited Government, Fiscal Responsibility, and Free Markets.” To “sell” the Tea Party, we as members should take every opportunity to promote and encourage the participation of family members, “tea party friendly” friends, neighbors and acquaintances. Use your sphere of influence to bring in new members and to encourage others into activism. The Tea Party message is “vital” to the restoration of our Constitutional Republic. * Sponsors and members Jorge and Berta Medina (Title Professionals of South Florida and Pan American Marble & Stone Company) donated several copies of “How to Master the Art of Selling”, by Tom Hopkins, to the BTP library.            

 

Guest Speaker: Marielena Stuart, Candidate U. S. Senate.   

Marielena presents herself as the “authentic” conservative candidate. She is a blogger and an activist who says that socialism and communism are the biggest threats to America. Agenda 21, the UN’s sustainable development program, is the international push toward socialism/communism across the globe. Agenda 21 is a Marxist collectivist world movement. It is a public/private partnership that is unconstitutional yet, many federal, state, and local governments are proposing and implementing it. Marielena’s platform includes putting the brakes on Agenda 21, curbing China’s influence on the US economy, and stopping the push for “Sharia Law” in our courts. For more information on Marielena and her campaign, please visit her website http://marielenastuartforussenate2012.com/

Special Treat:

BTP was treated to the premier of Co-founder and resident Grammy award-winning musician, Lee Levin’s new musical group, “The Voters”. Lee and his team of professional musicians and songwriters have been working since the end of 2011 to write and record patriotic and politically-themed music and songs. Three songs were performed: “It’s You” (Blame it on Bush), “Leading from Behind”, and “America’s Coming Back”. The membership was asked to vote for a favorite to be released as a single. An album will be released nationally, at a later date. All three songs were exceptional! The meeting was energized by the music and songs………. Thank you Lee and “The Voters”, we can’t wait for the single and album to be released.                      

The latter part of the meeting was devoted to a “group planning” session led by Co-founder Charles Robinson. Eight groups were formed to brainstorm ideas on the following subjects: Activism, Making an Impact, Tea Party Group Size, Spreading the Tea Party Message, Innovative Fund-raising, Recruiting Strategy, and What Value comes from the Tea Party Group Experience.
