I received this email from the Tea Party Express and it is asking for help in raising funds for Our cause. Please read it and if you can help, use the link at the bottom of the page to make a donation. Whatever you can afford to give will go toward keeping this movement alive. But, most important as the email goes on to say, more of us have to start showing up at these events to show the cynical, dismissive media that we are a force to reckon with. Every important cause has to have some sacrifice, even if that means giving up time for things you would rather be doing. I liken this to a war in which we can't rest until we have achieved victory. Let's get our Constitution and Country back!
By now you've no doubt heard of the "Tea Party Express" crossing this country, rallying Americans to stand up to the liberal politicians in Washington who are advancing their tax-spend-bailout policies.
The "Tea Party Express" is receiving a ton of media coverage (such as these reports from Fox News Channel) and has embedded journalists from Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, Parcbench, and the New York Times.
But that could all change if we don't get your immediate help. Producers for these news outlets are contemplating whether to "pull" their reporters from the "Tea Party Express" tour unless the crowds at our tea party rallies continue to grow over the next few days. The news outlets say that there has to be sign of building momentum and growth in importance/energy from these events.
So we here at the Tea Party Express are launching a new wave of TV advertising to get the word out to more Americans and get more conservatives to turn out, speak out and take action as part of the Tea Party Express.
But we need your help. We need to raise $49,275 in the next 48 hours to pay for this new round of TV advertising.
