Road Report from Darla Dawald - ResistNet/Grassfire
Darla Dawald on the Road with the Tea Party Express II
Friday November 6th I joined the Tea Party Express in the great state of Texas representing Resistnet and Grassfire. The Texas Patriots were great and as expected showed up for the rallies in number and form from Austin to Houston, and Beaumont!
The Next stop was Baton Rouge where the people were feisty due to a 215-220 vote in the House of Representatives last night approving their version of the health care bill. It is maddening and de-motivating…..however, it is not the final word and we can still KILL the BILL! Furthermore, we should be proud that we converted the yes votes from the Bluedogs from 39 to only 5 yes votes yesterday. You were all dedicated and stayed the course and I am so proud to be associated with you.
At every rally when it’s my time to speak I inform the people about the difficulty we experienced in DC last week while trying to deliver petitions to the Senators. I share that we had to hire a courier to deliver the petitions due to the inept and unconstitutional actions taken by the security at the Senate buildings. I have spoken to the people about Flip this House and taking back our country in 2010 using Flip and the precinct strategy.
I encourage them to become involved and engaged and fight every step of the way. We cannot allow the Chicago thuggery who hijacked our country to remain in power and we have to use our vote to change it. I remind them to do this we have to come out in great numbers and bring others with us and we must remain dedicated to educating the masses along the way.
My message has been well received and I have met many Resistnet and Grassfire members along the way. As a matter of fact our own Streetsweeper met us in Houston and has been on the road following us along with many other people from stop to stop!
I feel blessed to be a part of this great team of people crossing the country to spread an encouraging message to stand up and unite and take our country back to the people! People appreciate the Tea Party Express II coming to their town and the dedication of all who are involved in the movement. We appreciate the many people that take time to support the cause and the movement. People are waking up in great numbers and only by working together can we affect long term change to restore our country and put it back on the right path of a Constitutional Republic.
One of my favorite portions of our event is the tribute to our veterans and armed forces. It is a moving, patriotic tribute and every one there seems to be affected by it. We owe a great deal of our freedoms to our veterans, armed forces and their families. Many who have sacrificed their lives for the very freedom we and others in the world enjoy today because America is about freedom!
We have a lot of work to do yet and we must remain dedicated to follow through by educating ourselves, our circles of influence, and those we can reach out to. We must be vigilant and steadfast and together, arm in arm, shoulder to shoulder, step by step….We will restore our American Republic.
