What an exciting day! We had the opportunity to join up with the Tea Party Express as it made its stop in Green Bay today. While the weather wasn't exactly cooperative, we did see about 1,000 people out to support the efforts of this amazing grass-roots movement.
Mark Block, from Americans for Prosperity (fightbackwisconsin.com) and and Linda Hanson from Wisconsin Prosperity Network (www.wisconsinprosperitynetwork.com/) were there to kick things off.
Herman “The Terminator” Cain was also a speaker at the event. He had three things we need to remember, and I'd like to share them with you.
1.Stay connected—small groups connected to larger ones—all the way to Washington
2.Stay informed—know your facts and do your research
3.Stay inspired—visit some of the web sites listed on the side here, and know you're not alone
The Tea Party Express buses were about 30 minutes late, but the speakers and entertainment were so motivational and passionate about our great country and taking it back, it was worth it! We were treated to the following:

If you go online and do a search on any one of these people and their organizations, you will know you are not alone in the fight against the government. We need to stand together and support the right candidates, support the Constitution, support each other and get our friends and family to get off the couches and get involved.
I have to share this more personal note. My second-grade daughter came up to me and asked if she could do a “Book Talk” (book report) on “this little book.” I took one look and just smiled—she was holding the pocket-sized United States Constitution! What could I say? She'll be doing that for her talk on April 15.
Thanks for taking the time to read all of this—we appreciate all the support you have given us, and look forward to seeing you again on April 22.
