YES!!! On this wonderful, beautiful rainy day, eight (8) proud TEA PARTY PATRIOTS quietly and respectfully held signs for passers-by to read.
In a world where places like Texas and Somalia have been subjected to some of the worst droughts in history...how could we NOT love the beautiful, beautiful rain here in the N.E. that God has bestowed upon us?
I said we were quiet and the only time we may have 'yelled' at bit was when some kindly drivers tooted their horns in support of us.
In case they don't realize it, let me tell those 'horn-tooters' something: We appreciate your encouragement much more than you can ever know--especially in 'Progressive Liberal' SW CT!
But rest assured, though Greenwich-Stamford TEA PARTY PATRIOTS may be small in number, our INTENTIONS are VERY LARGE.
We want better lives for ALL people, not only in Connecticut, but all over the USA. The beauty of Connecticut with it's diversity is that we are in a position to help ALL people here legally, both citizens and those hoping to become citizens.
We are in a dynamic state with the potential to really make a difference!
From a pastoral stand-point, I say, "It is easy to be kind to those who 'like' you...but as a decent peoples--religious or not--the real challenge is to assure a good quality-of-life for all who love this country and are asking for help.
That simply is not happening now with our current political leaders. They haven't been able to provide people with something as simple as a JOB for years now! CT has seen businesses driven away in droves for quite a while now.
YES-Connecticut is a 'study in frustration' for conservatives and even for 'moderates' who aren't part of the 'old boy network'. Yet I am encouraged at this time that we TEA PARTY PATRIOTS have the very wonderful opportunity to really make a difference and improve the lives of those in the Nutmeg state!
WON'T YOU JOIN US?
My precious 'plea' is to those who are no longer enchanted with the current administration state-wise and nationally. Perhaps you will consider looking more fully into the Greenwich-Stamford TEA PARTY PATRIOTS and find out just what we really are all about.
Predictably, we must 'do all things for ourselves' for the most part and that's okay. I would like to encourage all you 'honkers' to JOIN US at what will be regular Sunday peaceful and informative demonstrations in front of Stamford Library and other places to be announced.
I promise you, you will make a difference--not only for yourselves, but for your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, too!
My 'sign' reads, "LET'S HELP HEAL OUR BELOVED AMERICA!".
Who doesn't agree with that?
God Bless You & God Bless America
