Member Of Tea Party Movement Releases Tax Protests Statistics

May 14, 2010 by  

Member of Tea Party movement releases tax protests statistics After the Tax Day protests died down, members of the Tea Party movement took stock of the rallies nationwide and reported that more than 2 million people attended them.

Tea Party Patriots (TPP), a grassroots organization that subscribes to the principles of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government and free markets, also revealed that 2,000 groups are now voluntarily affiliated with it.

"The Tea Party principles have steadily attracted a growing percentage of Americans to the movement," said Sally Oljar, TPP state coordinator for Washington.

TPP was founded in March 2009 as a support and networking umbrella for Tea partiers, 9/12, As a Mom, Constitution Party, We the People and other liberty oriented groups across the nation. It stresses its strictly non-partisan nature.

In fact, earlier this week Phillip Dennis, founder of the Dallas Tea Party, sought to dispute the belief that politicians such as Sarah Palin represent the movement.

In an article written for CNN Dennis said that Palin and many other politicians from both sides of the aisle use the Tea Party banner to raise money or expand their political base.

"The real center and strength of the movement [are] the people who work full-time jobs, have family responsibilities and make time to manage and grow their own group," he wrote on the CNN website. ADNFCR-1961-ID-19765986-ADNFCR

    The Tea Party movement really doesn’t know how many ‘closet’ members it has. Too many of us simply cannot get away from our families and jobs to join up with them, but we are there in spirit and we will be there on voting day!

    • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Randy

      AMEN!

  • Judy

    I too am a ‘closet’ Tea Party movement member. I have a very limited income and cannot afford to give much to those I would like to see win in the senate or house. HOWEVER, I WILL BE THERE ON VOTING DAY! And at the next Tea Party close to my home.

    • rwnut

      Judy..write to those that the Tea Party Movement is backing and tell them they have your vote.They need to know.

    • usmadgirl

      Judy,

      I’m in the same position as you are. I’m a member of a Tea Party group, but I have my own business (16 years), work 16 to 20 hours per day 7 day per week (literally) & just barely make enough to pay my business & household expenses – sometimes (like now) not enough for those!

      I wanted to go to Washington or just to Nashville to protest with my son & his wife last month, but I can’t afford tires for one of my cars & the transmission is leaking on the other one so I can’t drive either that far. Also, please pray for the people in Nashville who lost everything in the devastating flood that you barely heard about in the MessiahStreamMedia.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFjaQoOdJvI&sns=em

      Since I’ve never been able to attend a protest, I write my representatives, e-mail family & friends everything I can about all the progressive, unconstitutional crime that’s going on in our government. Some of my neighbors (most conservative) don’t want to KNOW what’s going on; so I don’t discuss politics with them anymore.

      I watch “Glenn” every day (his show is like my “lunch break”), take notes so I’ll know what I’m talking about & research (when I have a minute) to learn everything I can.

      I’m a die-hard conservative Republican; so I’ll vote for the most conservative, Constitution-loving candidate that I KNOW can beat ANY Dumb-o-crat. I wouldn’t vote for a Dumb-o-crat if they were on fire & my vote would put out the flames! (Now, that’s just mean!)

          Ok Timothy we get it you don’t like conservatives, but it seems you go over the line with racist and idiots in your vocabulary.

          Bush did not drive the nation into the ground, it was the collapse of Fannie Mae and hugh financial institutions. That were forced to give out subprime loans to people whom they knew could never pay the bill. Proof:…. The internet is full of clips of Barney Frank fighting Republicans of impending doom in the financial markets. It is also full of Chuck Shumer and a host of other Socialists in the Demo party. Guess what we are headed for another collapse, I been around long enough to know we should be out of this depression, but we keep spending money we don’t have, so we just print more. The dollar is collapsing at a record pace because of Geitner and Obama’s spend like there is no tomorrow. The Dems took control of both houses in 06 and all one has to do is look at the spending level increses and the start of the downward spiral. We were attacked by crazies and Bush was forced to spend billions to put things in order, so Iraq is now without a terrorist supporter, and Afghanistan is not harboring Alqeada, but I bet they will be before Obama leaves office in 16 if he wins. Enough on this bull.

        I read about that Flood and saw it on T.V. in Milwaukee here….My heart goes out to those people…….and I’m NOT going to politicize it, like you did………….

    I am a behind the scenes member, too. I stay home with my children during the tea parties, but do what I can on the internet to help get the word out to other friends and members of the Constitution Party of Arizona. If our whole family went, there would be *eight* in attendance instead of just one! My husband attends whenever he does not have to be at his job, often manning booths or giving radio interviews. My role, which I embrace, is to support what he is doing. I am happy to help him in any way needed.

    • rwnut

      Great work fellow patriot! Eileen, you must vote out the traitor John(Teddy)McCain.Elect J.D.Hayworth. The same in California,we must vote out the traitor Madam Boxer.

      • usmadgirl

        rwnut,

        Boy, is that for sure! But “please don’t call me ‘Madam’ or ‘Mam’, call me ‘Senator’, I’ve worked soooooo hard for that title”. I nearly puked! I’m in the South & & we’re taught from birth to address women as “mam” & men as “sir” or get a spanking for being disrespectful! The military is instructed to do the same! Where does this arrogant, self-centered (b)witch get off telling a General not to call her “mam”?

        I’m very disappointed in Sarah endorsing McCain, but the media would’ve crucified her either way, but she had no ties to the DeVore & Fiorina race & think she chose the less conservative of the two. RINO Campbell shouldn’t even be considered. I don’t dislike Fiorina, but I think Chuck DeVore is the more Constitutionally-conservative candidate. That’s my view & I’m sticking to it!

    There are many people whose core values are those of the Tea Party, they just haven’t made the connection yet. Many can’t attend the meetings or events but are with the movement giving all they can in other ways. It’s growing and will continue to grow because we must get our country back!

  • Char

    I am a supporter of the tea party movement and will be there in November.

  • Valerie

    Because there are so many small, local groups that all associate with the principles of the tea party movement, it is very difficult to estimate how many people there are involved in so many different ways. That is to our benefit as the opposition has no idea of the storm coming in November! Let’s blind side them with our votes and our voices!

  • rwnut

    I’m a member of the Tea Party Movement,although there is no membership.This is the concept the politicians and the media cannot grasp. They have drifted so far from the Constitution that they no longer have any loyalty to America. Thier loyalty is to any foriegner who wants to take us over. They no longer recognize who “We The People”are. Our “rules” are written in the Constitution,the blood of our Founding Fathers,and our ancestors. The politicians have forgotten where they came from,and why they are there.”WE THE PEOPLE” are going to show them!
    “What country can preserve its liberties,if its rulers are not warned from time to time that THIS PEOPLE PRESERVE the spirit of RESISTANCE?”

  • s c

    What matters is the ripple effect. As more and more people understand that a worthless, huge and indifferent government can’t and won’t protect anyone (let alone dole out $ it doesn’t have), America’s psychotic progressives will see hundreds millions of disgusted Americans line up with a single voice and gut this Big Government monster.
    If it’s done right, the coming elections will be an even greater landslide than when Reagan put Nuts Carter in his place (OUT of office, and up to his sorry neck in disgrace).

    I’m not a Tea Party supporter but I love your passion. Let freedom ring for all and let free speech reign.Hold America dear to your hearts and fight for decency for many of you are a strong middle ground.

    • s c

      Big Ed, when you talk about middle ground, have the GUTS to define the term. When you use that word, you mean middle ground as in a fence-sitter who might be persuaded to get sucked into a progressive delusion. You’re talking about poll chasers who have all the integrity of a Washington hooker.
      Arlen Specter is a first-rate example of what you mean by a ‘middle grounder.’ McCain and ‘Limply’ Graham are two other examples.
      No thanks. Keep your middle ground. Side-switching middle grounders had a major role in America’s dumbing-down and back-stabbing of the last 100+ years. We politely call them RINOs. You call them blue dog dems. Whatever they’re called, they SUCK.

    I am a supporter of anything PRO-AMERICAN. I am a Tea Party supporter and I listen to RUSH, GLENN and DOBBS. I am deeply against the present administration in D.C. They are not friends to America and should be tried as Traitors. Obama has done zero to fix anything in this country. I hope you’re still working because your taxes are going to support those who don’t. I was once an upper class citizen making $100k a year for a good number of years. My 401k went into the trash. I too can not continue to give handfuls of money to TRY and stay FREE. It’s amazing how much money we pay to be free just to watch some government take it all away in taxes. You wonder why there are Tea Parties…well they are the only help we have to bring the masses together to rid our nation of greedy politicians and lawyers that what to grab all the money and power they can on the rest us. I really hope you get your eggs together and vote these greedy clowns out of office. None of them seem to have any concern for anyone but themselves.

      So you might stock up on gold sold to you at 200% above value?

      It’s statements like the above that turn me sour on the Tea Party crowd. Even though I might agree with them regarding the American People taking back the responsibility for government.

      But here is the thing, ” They are saying ” Taking back control of government” ~ Well the truth is , it was over simplified complacency and general indifference, willing to buy anything “wrapped” in the red,white and blue that got us into this mess.

      This “herd” mentality of simpletons poorly serves and offers only distraction and fanfare as the bag man makes his way to the back door.

      And who has the luxury of time to make these “pilgrimages” to make “big noise” and waving hate signs? Having children to wave hate signs? Openly racial slurs showing great contempt and intolerance to race , creed or color ?

      Perhaps it was started with “good intentions” and “noble ideas” on someones part, but it been hyjacked by the same hyjackers of the GOP. More wolfs in sheep cloths as they aid the same hyjackers that has brought America to the cross roads.

    I have always called myself a political independent, who votes Republican more often than not. I see, in the “Tea Party” movement, not a political party, per se, but a group of independent thinkers, some well-educated and some not-so-well-educated, who in spite of the sometimes heated argumants among ourselves, have one thing in common. An attitude, ranging from respect to an almost religious adoration, for the Constitution of The United Staters of America.

      Very true!

  • JohnA

    I attended my first Tea Party on April 15, 2009 in Ft. Lauderdale and every one thereafter. It was a great feeling to be with such good and patriotic people. It is good to be able to share our thoughts of freedom openly. So many people know what is wrong with our government and know instinctively what to do about it. Here in Florida, Gov. Crist found out we know about his little games in the political circles and he was roundly bashed in the current primaries. We are also supporting our AG in preparing an immigration enforcement law in Florida
    No matter how badly our government tramples our freedoms, we will survive to the last man or woman who cherishes Freedom. Thanks to all our fellow patriots.

    • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Randy

      We in Florida need to make sure that traitor Crist doesn’t get elected
      to office, any. I beleived him and voted for him , but now he’s shown his true colors by going against our conservative values, which he claimed were his also, when he decided he couldn’t win his parties nomination. He vetoed the bill holding teachers responsible for their accomplishments, or lack there of, to placate their union in the anticipation of picking up the unions endorsement when he bolted from his party to run as an independent for the position he couldn’t win in the primaries. It also shows how stupid he really is expecting this could happen, but it is well known that unions only back Democratic candidates who cow-tow to their demands, and Crist is an unknown entity by not staying loyal to his long time party affiliation that proved very succesful for him but once he couldn’t get his way, separated from them instead of accepting what the majority wanted.

  • Markus

    A house divided falls. This is what these treasonist sub-humans are doing now. This immigration nightmare is exactly what the doctor ordered and we are only seeing the beginning of this. Remember, wrap yourselves in the truth, obey the law, and do not under any circumstances pick up a weapon and use it, except obviously in self-defense. The left is orchestrating this to start the unwinding of our society, they are counting on our emotions to get the better of us. DO NOT LET IT HAPPEN!!! They can call us anything they want, but the truth we all know, and come November, (if we get there) we will empty the place out of all these traitors, both Republicans and Democrats!!! Constitutional Conservatives no matter what!!!

    • rwnut

      Markus…You’ve hit the nail right on the head. We must try this the legal way first.But Hussien and the leftwing,with the help of Clinton and Bush on immigration,have brought America to the verge of a civil war.In my opion that will happen if we can’t change things at the polls. Never forget, Hussiens purpose is to destroy America as a free nation.Every he does and says is falling in to place to accomplish this.

  • Charley41

    Markus is right..We don’t want the left commies to say oh this is out of control. we need to make use of this crisis and must implement Marshall law.

          “Neither despise,nor oppose,what thou dost not understand!
          William Penn,1693
          “Refuse not to be informed: for that shows pride or stupidity.
          William Penn,1693

            I don’t much take advice from someone who lived in 1693…………

          tim…I thought you just wanted to look forward.

    All I want from the government is to get their nose out of my life,their hands out of my pockets,and follow the constitution to the letter. These are the terms of freedom, happines and prosperity.

    • usmadgirl

      Amen, KBrown!!!

    I am encouraged by all of those reporting to be closet Tea Party supporters. One way to increase participation among those of us who must work most days can be to overwhelm the postal mail boxes of government offices and media outlets with A “New” Declaration of Independence
    http://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2010/02/a-new-declaration-of-independence/
    If this idea can be published effectively so many copies would show up that they would not be able to find regular mail, or fail to notice our protest. Does anyone like this idea?

    • usmadgirl

      John Frum,

      I like anything that pi$$es off or destroys the lives of those who have pi$$ed us off & destroyed our lives!

      John Frum,
      I like the Idea, but what is wrong with the old one?? I think it sums up the problems we are experiencing quite well and has stood the test of time!!!!!

    S.C.2:08pm; Your right,middle ground is something you’ll never have.Your extremist one sided view helps no one and might be clouding up your window. Your always keeping America in turmoil with your far right looney tirades. We once had a strong middle class (middle ground)and we were the glue that held this country together. Now we are nothing but wealth worshipers and it’s everyman for himself. We don’t need the extremism on the right or the left but it’s here. I would love to see America pulled back to that middle ground and stop acting like a divorced couple. Good government is a blessing and big government can be a disaster.Just like corporate shenanigans can cause a nation to fall and we have fallen. Now it’s time to find that middle ground and I do believe the Tea Party can be a part of that.

      Einstein, your life is like a scene from Dumb and Dumber (minus the humor). You don’t know up from down, yet you demand to be seen as an authority.
      Genius, if your White House god is so concerned with the middle class, then why is that yahoo doing his worst to DESTROY it? You must have been the class valdedictorian in your useful idiot academy.
      If CLUELESS isn’t your middle name, it should be. Tell me, comrade, how many posters of lenin and marx adorn the walls of your house?

      • JC

        Obama is surely setting out to destroy first the middle class…then America itself.

        • http://?? Joe H.

          JC,
          Amen and well said!!!

        • marvin

      • rwnut

        sc…You’re absolutly right.We’ve learned the hard way the leftwing liberal is not looking for middle ground.Plain and simple,they’re looking for a takeover.It’s my conspiracy laden mind again,but I think eddie is trying to blow smoke up our a– again!

  • http://gmail i41

    Edyee, when socialist dems talk about middle ground, it means the movement everyone, even the leftist liberals moving farther left and the center moving way to left. Never have seen a democrat, socialist move to the right. It is always to the left and to compromise with the left, which means moving quite a way to the left. On a scale set from 1-30, with 15 being canter. Lefty always want everything to be at least in the 25-30 range. You dems whine like stuck hogs, if reps want to meet in the 15-12 range. When the final agreement comes out, it is in the 27-30 range. If a bunch of rinos compromise on a bia partisian bill, it is still at the 20-30 range, never in the 10-16 range. You socialist dems are never going to compromise on anything, it is your way, or you cry and mess your nappies.

    A friend sent me an email telling of the usurper in chief diracting the government to spend
    $20 million to relocate palistinians to the U.S. I guess he feels we don’t have enough islamic terrorist in this country. I have attended several tea party events and I can tell you that we are detemined to defend the constitution and fire as many traitorous politicos as possible.

  • Freedom Fighter

    I never heard this number reported from any major media, not even Fox News.

    • http://?? Joe H.

      Freedom Fighter,
      Seems to me I remember seeing something about this right after Obummer took over and it was Clintoon that was making the promise supported by Obummer! How about it people anyone out there remember this??

  • Robert

    when mainstream media does do not report factual and hard hitting news such as the tea party movement’s huge numbers, it simply reflects that they are running scared. And they should be with all the fake news they put on – their time of ending is coming. The tea party participants represent tens of millions of american’s who could not attend for some reason or the other. i would bet there are over a hundred million tea party people out there ready to kick some butt. i’m one who was not able to attend but i’m with ‘em and ready to kick some butt! be afraid liars, cheaters, extremists, socialists, secretive american hating bureaucrats/politicians/etc. we’re marching to kick you out and we’re getting bigger than your wildest imagination because you really actually thought that we didn’t care… lol

    • rwnut

      Robert…Way to go! Give’em hell fellow patriot!

      • tim

        You people aren’t Patriots……..your’e racist idiots, masking yourselves as True Americans……..Well, I’m not going to give this Country to Red-Neck nation just yet………….Talk all you want about how great it was in during the birth of this Nation………We come a long way, away from our past Demons, and I’m not turning back, no matter WHAT you people call yourselves…………..

        • rwnut

          tim… You haven’t come very far at all.Your past demons are eating the hell out of you!

        • http://naver samurai

          Dude you need to think about what my grandparents said in their day: “Never pass up a good chance to shut up!” When I served this country, everyone in my platoon were Americans. I didn’t care about race, religion, or where they were from, they were all Americans. I can still remember having firefights with Al Queda and other murdering fools and the person next to me being a different race, but who cares about the persons race? I’ll bet Johnny Cochran would really be proud of your little mind. You seem to play the race card every chance you get.

          • rwnut

            samurai….Hoorah!

          • rwnut

            samurai…I think that was the second or third thing he said at the top of this site. We all want white anglo-saxen power because we disagree with him and his commie leader.Don’t forget tim,he’s half white.We think.It’s never been proven.If it makes you feel better tim let me just say,I’m voting against his white half.How’s that for being willing to meet you half way?
