Unedited e-mail Billie Tucker, the grand poo-pah of the First Coast Tea Party sent out to her “boots on the ground.”
The list of losers in the TU included the GOP, Rick Scott and Billie Tucker.
This is their strategy and let me tell you all something – the GOP sucked at helping in our local election. When it all came down to standing up to the thugs and demanding a recount – the GOP lawyers wimped and said we didn’t have a leg to stand on. They didn’t have the money to pay for it!
They didn’t ask to see the right stuff and when I called our Supervisor of Elections office and spent 2 hours with him- I asked the right questions and ladies & gentlemen – he told me “they didn’t ask these questions.” Had they asked them, the day of the recount would have been different.
Four GOP lawyers couldn’t figure it out.
No worries – we are not letting this go. We have a plan and I’ll be back to you on that later.
But the reality is this – if the GOP doesn’t grow some ‘you-know-whats’ for 2012 – we are going to be calling Obama President again. The left plays dirty and they are smarter than us. Period. The right needs to understand how to play like they do.
Here’s a gotcha moment. I stood among 6 GOP big shots on election night (Jeff Atwater was one of them). We were talking about the strategy the left used. I mentioned it was the Alinsky method and not ONE of them knew what I was talking about. They had never heard of Alinsky or his methods. I was in shock.
The tea party understands what is going on and we have no money and we have boots on the ground.
The GOP has the money, the prestige and the power. They couldn’t get the boots on the ground (we had more from our tea party than they did) and they didn’t know what to do other than walk precincts, make calls and hold a few signs. The walkers in the precincts were more than half tea party members too.
So this is what we have. A big GOP establishment with the power and position. They get the money from big donors.
We have the boots and the wisdom of how to fight the left (we are still learning however).
We have some choices:
- Continue to work apart and end up like we did in Jacksonville
- Educate the GOP with grassroots wisdom (if they will let us)
- Take over the GOP – that’s another story
- Shut down the tea party, hunker down at home and wait for the hammer to fall in 2012.
I’m not sure what to do. Would love your thoughts,
