Please read and forward this email to anyone you know who may attend the Health Care Town Hall this Saturday.  I’m making the following comments as a result of information and insight I gained from a conversation I had with a friend who’s in a position to advise us.

 

 

First I want to make it clear that this Town Hall is being hosted by Rep. Buck McKeon, not the SCV Tea Party.  We’ve all seen similar meetings being coordinated by other politicians that have received a fair amount of bad press.  I want to ensure that we do all we can to mitigate the potential for bad press and to maximize our voice to our government.

 

 

Rep. McKeon is clearly one of the more conservative elected officials in California; as such we should be respectful but also make our position clear.  As President Regan said so eloquently, “Government is not the solution, it is the problem.”

 

 

It is the responsibility of this generation to sustain the work of our Founding Fathers, in order to do that we need to change our political paradigm.  Our battle is not simply a left vs. right or Republican vs. Democrat fight.  Most of us have not taken an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic, yet we find ourselves forced to do that because many of our politicians both Republican and Democrat refuse to do it.  In fact, many of our politicians have not only refused to defend our Constitution, they have become “domestic enemies” of our Constitution.

 

 

I think the enemies of our Constitution would love nothing less than to put us in a negative light, or to reinforce the existing false image of Tea Party members.  So in order to make sure your voice is heard without creating bad press:

 

 

·         Act and speak with both passion and wisdom.

 

 

·         Don’t express your 2nd Amendment right by wearing an exposed weapon.

 

 

·         When you ask questions, be solution oriented rather than simply venting.

 

 

·         Don’t let someone bait you into a confrontation.

 

 

·         Be respectful of other’s with differing opinions.

 

 

·         Be aware that there may be individuals attending pretending to be members of our Tea Party who are not members of the Tea Party attempting to create a disturbance.

 

 

To use a Biblical quote: “Be shrewd as serpents but innocent as doves.”  Matthew 10:16
