Tea Party Seeking Union County Volunteers for November Election

 Scotch Plains-Fanwood  See map

The Scotch Plains – Fanwood Tea Party is seeking volunteers throughout Union County for the purpose of working to support candidates for federal office who best represent our philosophy of fiscal responsibility, small government and personal responsibility.  We will organize and train volunteers to have an impact on the election by communicating with their friends and neighbors about key issues and getting out the vote on Election Day.  We will provide volunteers with the materials and guidance to accomplish the job.

We have rallied, protested, and made our impact on the 2010 elections.  But, with all our accomplishments, the outcome is still in doubt.  The stakes are high, and we have much to lose.  The November federal election will decide if we are to continue the American dream born 235 years ago or become a socialist society bogged down by unsustainable debt and government  dictates on  how we live our lives from Obamacare to which light bulbs we can use in our homes. 

On Thursday, August 2 at 7 p.m. at the Scotch Hills Country Club, 820 Jerusalem Road, Scotch Plains, the Scotch Plains – Fanwood Tea Party will hold a meeting to organize volunteers and get them actively involved in the election process.

Come join us in taking back our country.

The Scotch Plains – Fanwood Tea Party, a Chapter of The Morristown Tea Party, a NJ non-profit corp.  All are welcome.

Words have consequences Tom. Don't play the victim. You and other TPers are happy to throw out there, Marisx, socialism, governmental redistribution. you trash Clinton, talk of how the left is chopping away at our values and yes, you threatened violence. When called out, you won't answer basic direct questions, tell me to lighten up and then say you were being facetious. Typical coward. Unfortunately your ilk is alive and well with a small minority in our town as well. One of our more vocal TPers is now looking to taxes churches. He complains about public employee extravagance. Oh by the way, he's a retired government school principal. More of the same, I got mine, eff you hypocrisy. By the way, if 5 to 6 questions asked in one post is too many for you, what is your limit so I can re ask them?

I'm so glad to see the Tea Party getting organized and active. They seem to be the only ones concerned about reducing government spending and debt. Neither Republicans nor Democrats seem to have any real proposals to cut spending, and both parties have made the problems worse.

So what is wrong with getting money for something you paid for? They are complaining that no one should be getting the money and therefore no one should be paying. If they have to pay, then they should take the money.

The so called government is right here in town. Why don't you guys just hold a little rally in front of the town hall and protest the ever increasing property taxes that is driving us middle class out of town?

Pointy, you insist on assuming I am a Tea Partier, but I have not attended any Tea Party event, nor have I any affiliation with any political group apart from being a registered Republican (which doesn't mean I adore Romney, Christie or my local officials, either). I am not even aware that any of my acquaintances are Tea Partiers. There is no need for citizens to be dependent upon the government for day-to-day, mundane needs. Private non-profit, charitable and for-profit organizations can handle that with less waste. People who put themselves and their property at risk (of flooding, for example) should purchase insurance. Many ambulance services charge the injured something. There are some responses for you. When you go off in several directions with your questions, we hardly have the opportunity to clarify things and understand each other. Isn't that of value to you? Instead, the dialogue gets a bit unwieldy, lacks coherence and generally disintegrates.
