Recently your North Lake TEA Party (NLTP) organizers and volunteers got together and the four events on the home page are the result! We hope you will take the opportunity to come pray with us on the National Day of Prayer, and come out again on Flag Day to protest tax and spend politicians who are taking our country down the path to socialism. On July 4th, we feel it is time to turn from protesting to celebrating our veterans and informing our citizens. "There is nothing more dangerous to a politician than an informed voter." We at NLTP feel we have a responsibility to take this platform and arm you with knowledge. Could you brush up on the Constitution? Do our youth know the difference between Capitalism and Socialism? If you want to contact your Legislators, do you know how? These are some of the workshops we're putting together for you. We'd love your suggestions for the day's workshops and events. So, bring them on!
We're going to give it to you! Another TEA Party for July 4th is in the works. We'll be holding the event at the Lake County Fairgrounds and have exciting plans in store for the day. Included in the festivities will be workshops to help educate citizens on the Constitution, How to Communicate with your Legislators, What is Pork?, Our Founding Fathers, etc. We hope you will make plans to join us and if you have any suggestions for the day, please feel free to leave a comment and I'll take your suggestions to the volunteer meeting.
Again, I am overwhelmed by the show of support today. Well over 1,000 of you signed the petition and let your voice be heard. The children and youth were incredibly well spoken and in their voices I find hope for the future of America. If our legislators didn't hear us, then they may as well consider today's event their going away party!

Yes, I have noticed there has been no blog for 2 days. It's only because we have been swamped with the planning of this empowering event and fielding emails and news updates. The energy surrounding the tea parties nationwide is palpable. Over 600 people have hit our web site in just 5 days. We're working on an "after the program, program" which would include a workshop on the Constitution and information on how to contact your legislators. If you're reading this, you probably already know, but educating those who are standing up for the first time is one of our goals. We'll keep you posted as we get them confirmed. Please note we have a facebook group and event page. The link is on the home page so please join in and RSVP for the event.
Today, we are neither Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Idependants but we are Americans. Americans who have put their trust in a government that needs to know, "We are watching you!" Although I don't agree with all the solutions in this video, I agree with enough to post it. Fifteen years from now I don't want to tell my grandchildren that I did nothing when America lost its way. How about you? Will you join us on April 15th? Stand side by side with other Americans who agree to hold our government accountable.
We are in the process of refining our platform to focus on 3 issues. At a time when we could easily be divided over the multitude of problems, we need to narrow our focus in order to make our voices louder.
Have you ever just sat down and googled quotes from our Founding Fathers? It's a lot to sift through. Three years ago I printed this one and put it on a magnet on my refrigerator: "One Man with Courage Makes a Majority" by Andrew Jackson
