July 4th, Tea Party Suggestions

To Tea Party Members:

I have received many e-mails asking for information including:
1. Time & Place of the Independence Day Tea Party,
1.1 July 4, 2009, Noon – 1 PM,
1.2 Place: The Colorado State Capital Building, Downtown Denver, Between E. Colfax & E. 14th Avenues, East of Lincoln Street.
1.3 If you want to meet me, I intend to stand on the east side of the Civil War Monument. I will have a large American Flag and a sign that says, “The Constitution Matters.”
2. How can I help?
2.1 Please show up,
2.2 Encourage others to do likewise (Numbers Matter – over 800 cities will participate),
2.3 Visit the Tea Party Web Site for more information, and
2.4 Read the Declaration of Independence and Constitution.
3. What is our objective?
3.1 25,000 participants in a peaceful demonstration at the Colorado State Capital Building,
3.2 We expect Public Servants to listen (we know Politicians will not), and
3.3 Send clear messages, such as:
3.3.1 “Stop the Spending,” and
3.3.2 “We are Taxed Enough Already.”

If you intend to bring a sign, please keep your message simple like, “Stop the Spending,” or, those used by our founders such as, “The Power to Tax Is the Power to Destroy.” Here are a few reasons for this recommendation:
1. The media would like to silence our voice. If we have signs that are off point, such as, “Fire Pelosi,” although we might agree with this, it is something the media would use to demonize the demonstration, or at least marginalize our message.
2. We should strive to remove the ability to criticize our purpose, use our demonstration to inflame the passions of those who do not yet understand our grave-concerns, and to exploit our, “Grassroots,” movement as the last-gasp of Conservatives.
3. It is possible (however unlikely), Politicians might understand a statement written at the First Grade Reading Level.

KPOF, AM 91 has agreed to let me conduct an interview in June regarding the Tea Party. I will notify you of the exact date and time. If you have recommendations for their listening audience, feel free to e-mail your suggestions to me at Also, I can be reached at Twitter, Facebook, or at America’s Godly Heritage.
