Tags: , ,

7:40 p.m. The Panel believes the Tea Party should steer away from social issues. Personally I think we are deluding ourselves if we think that this will make the media like us more but the tighter the focus the easier to make the pitch.

7:20 p.m. What would we do different? More local events, reach out to public.

7:10 p.m. “This is not what we were told it would be!” Linda DuVal on what people who were informed by the media about tea parties said after attending.

7:05 p.m. Tawnya: biggest problem is members v involved members

7:00 p.m. Talked about achievements, talked about working with the media and the coverage it produced.

We have a tea party Panel on the election:

Ken Mandile of Worcester Tea Party

Dana George Reed: Knox Trail Tea Party

Tawnya Brooks: Greater Gardner Tea Party

Moderated by Justin Brooks

    There it is again the plan to ‘steer away from social issues’.

    Here’s what the tea parties need to do. GET ON THE SAME PAGE! If you are going to be a national organization and remain relevant nationally during the elections, and send true tea party candisates to Washington, you really need to be an organization that has similar views across the country.

    I was at a tea party meeting last March. I wrote about this then. The main speaker basically said lets get all these groups together and protest. don’t talk about social issues because then people will see that we aren’t truly as organized as we claim to be.
