Across the nation, people are planning tea party protests next Wednesday April 15. These protests are sure to attract many people and garner media coverage. At the Wichita tea party we expect hundreds to attend.
That’s fine for that one day. But to create change in our country, there must be sustained activism. That’s hard to do. It requires a variety of things, one of which is knowing what to do.
That’s where groups like American Majority can help. This group — national in scope with a strong and active presence in Kansas — provides training for candidates and activists. I’ve been to some of their training events, and they do a great job.
American Majority has started a web site specifically for after-tea party outreach. At this site, you can sign up and indicate your areas of interest. This will get you involved with a group that can help build on the enthusiasm generated by events like the tea party protests.
American Majority’s site is AfterTheTeaParty.com.
Candidate recruitment and campaign training is vitally important. In Wichita, we just had a disastrous election for both city and school board offices. There were a few good candidates. But we need more good people who understand the blessings of liberty, free markets, and limited government to run for office. We need to learn how to run effective campaigns to support these people. These are a few of the very important things we need to do to bring about change.
Don’t let the enthusiasm generated by the tea parties die out. Make sure you sign up for AfterTheTeaParty.com or another group. I’ll report on other worthwhile groups soon.
