Fellow Patriots,

I was speaking with Melissa at Congressman McCotter's office yesterday. Her office in Milford is in a residential area and vulnerable to demonstrations by groups like moveon and ACORN.

Before I go any further, I would NEVER ask anyone in our group to put themselves in a potentially dangerous situation.

I propose a Counter-Protest "SWAT" type group. I would expect the office being demonstrated against to call local law enforcement first. The second call would be to our SWAT Coordinator. The problem will be communicating immediately with the group. A "calling ring" may be a viable option for getting the word out quickly. Twitter could also be an option. We would be like the Minutemen who fought for their freedoms and liberties.

We have a distinct advantage over the opposition. We have the facts; we are not dealing with emotion. "They" have 2 major advantages over us: they are backed financially and they get press coverage (usually positive).

Your thoughts and comments are welcomed.

I can probably be available for a 'Dream Cruise' project as I live close by and am retired. I went last year for the first time even though I've lived in the Metro area since 1964.

Obama supporters will be gathering "declarations" supporting the President's 3 principles of health care during the Dream Cruise. They will be delivering them to the Oakland County Democratic HQ on the 17th.
1) Is there interest to "work" the Dream Cruise with "declarations of our own? (something stating that the Bill doesn't cover ANY of the 3 principles) I assume the declarations will be separate pieces of paper for the visual impact.
2) If we do #1, would we deliver them to the same place they do, or another place?

BTW,
Here are the 3 principles:
* Reduce Costs — Rising health care costs are crushing the budgets of governments, businesses, individuals and families and they must be brought under control
* Guarantee Choice — Every American must have the freedom to choose their plan and doctor – including the choice of a public insurance option
* Ensure Quality Care for All — All Americans must have quality and affordable health care

I ALSO VOLUNTEER. FOR THE MOST PART I CAN BE AVAILABLE ON SHORT NOTICE AS WELL, ALTHOUGH AS YOU CAN SEE, I OFTEN HAVE TINY BUT MIGHTY COMPANY). I AM ALSO INTERESTED IN FUND RAISING. REMEMBER, IT IS THE CONSERVATIVES THAT WORK. WE CAN OUT FINANCE THEM.

I would think that around the state, other Conservative Congressmen's offices could also benefit from the Tea Party Swat Teams to counter what the unions and ACORN and MOVEON will throw at them. I volunteer to be on this call ring, to be dispatched with a sign to anywhere in Southern MI. on short notice.(My biz travel schedule sometimes gets crazy, but when I am around, I can be very flexible)
