Yesterday my family and I attended the Labor Day Parade celebrating
As always it was a very political event. As luck would have it Jim McGovern’s marchers stopped directly in front of where my family was sitting. I shook the Congressman’s hand and meet his mother. Then he saw my saw my Worc Tea Party Button. He was visibly taken back and searched for words then decided to hurry along down
Perhaps never before have any of these people meet a member of the Tea Party movement. I commonly encounter those that are confused because I seem so “normal” and “likable” not what they are told to expect at all. I urge all Tea Party members to identify themselves as members and talk to people about what we believe and who we are. Not to “get up in their face” or “talk about the President as a dog,” but in as politely and friendly a way as possible, talk about your patriotism. This is how we can prove we are not what they claim we are. With humor and smiles and the optimism that comes from being an American.
