Skip to comments.Small town tea parties vs. elitist politicians

I was invited to address a July 4th picnic/tea party rally in Shelby, Mich., where we spend our summers. Shelby is a village whose main street is about 150 yards long and contains a post office, drug store, bank, hardware store, bakery, and that's about it. It's American as it can be. Millionaire fruit farmers sit together with mechanics and chat in a bakery that has the best doughnuts I've ever eaten. Since they all dress in jeans and coveralls, you can't tell them apart. The population of this village hovers around 1,900. And Shelby doesnt have just a tea party, but a very vibrant one. (Hey, by the way, my brother-in-law is an officer of the tea party in Grant, Mich., which has a population of 864! So when I hear liberals scoff at the power and national growth of the tea party movement, I understand and enjoy their fear.)

Can’t wait to read this one. :-)
Good read. Short, sweet, to the point!
I see it every time I attend a Tea Party event no matter how urban or rural the crowd.
That made me smile. This is what America is all about.
Yep, I see it every month when our local TP meets. America at it’s best. Long may it live.
