Lansing, MI Independence Day Tea Party: After Action Report
We had 1,500 to 1,800, I spoke with Capitol Events staff afterwards.
THAT is a great turnout for a holiday weekend. We also participated in the City of Lansing parade with 2 mounted riders included and an array of flags!
People are concerned AND committed to getting involved.
The most asked question? When is the next one?
Activists are being created out of the tea parties and We'll be back but perhaps in another form....but expect to see MORE activism because... We are at war. We are at war with those who have methodically worked to dismantle our Constitution, torn apart our representative Republic, and who wish to put another form of government in its place. WE ARE COMMITTED TO FIGHT FOR OUR REPRESENTATIVE REPUBLIC
Big THANK YOU to our volunteers, speakers and to all who sacrificed some leisure time to attend.
The Lansing,MI Independence Tea Party is backed by Grassroots in Michigan
