Fargo Event: The Future Of The Tea Party

ndpc

The North Dakota Policy Council is holding a policy lunch in Fargo tomorrow talking about the future of the tea party.

“We’re very excited to get to Fargo and talk to the Tea Party,” NDPC Executive Director Brett Narloch said in a press release. “They have a very active bunch over there and we want to help them maximize their potential. We have many of the same goals as the Tea Party so it makes sense that we would work together.”

The event will feature Narloch, Leon Francis from the North Dakota Tea Party Caucus and state Rep. Kim Koppelman.

Details:

What: NDPC Policy Lunch
Where: Holiday Inn – Fargo, ND
When: March 13, 2012 – Noon

    This should be fun, can’t wait.

    Bette Grande would have made a better panelist choice. She’s been involved in the Tea Party Caucus since the beginning in Cass County and has probably spoken at more Tea Party events than any other house candidate. She’s seen the evolution to date and can speak from experience about the way the different chapters are evolving around the state.

      I agree, Bette would have been great.  I’m not sure how they picked the panelists.  Maybe she was busy?

      Contact the folks at NDPC. I’m sure it wasn’t a slight.

       I run the organization hosting the event.  We called Rep. Grande first.

    The indendent of the Tea Party soon to be absorbed, future uncertain.  

  • Ratbite

    Too bad real folks won’t be able to attend. Sounds to me like a front for the North Dakota Republican Party.

    • http://sayanythingblog.com Rob

      I can tell you that the NDPC is hardly a front for the NDGOP.  They have nothing to do with the NDGOP.

    • Brett Narloch – NDPC

      We host lunches in Bismarck routinely and they’re very successful.  Our members have requested that we get more involved in Fargo, so we are.

      If you think we’re a front for the NDGOP, I suggest you ask the party leaders what they think of us.

    Just speaking logically, Rob…..Wouldn’t a North Dakota event about the future of the Tea Party be better with the president of the only tea party in North Dakota involved? (for those a little slow on the uptake, i am not referring to this ersat tea party caucus but the Williston tea party)

    just curious

    • http://sayanythingblog.com Rob

      I didn’t organize the event.  Take it up with the NDPC.

      • dalaibama

        point taken. and it just gives you warm fuzzies about how much brett warbucks cares for the tea party don’t it?

        all i can say is: BS

        • http://sayanythingblog.com Rob

          The Fargo are does have a very legit, very active tea party group.

          Is there something wrong Im not picking up on?

          • dalaibama

            just a difference in seminal beliefs. the tea party needs to be local and the less command structure the better. the caucus is just about the worst idea a person could have re: the tea party.
            trying to ‘decide’ the future of indigenous spontaneous protest and uprising is just not an idea with merit.

            Questions for mr narloch…

            1. when was your first interest in the tea party and why?

            just as i thought.

          • Brett Narloch – NDPC

            My first interest in the Tea Party was in December 2007 when supporters of Ron Paul celebrated the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party by shattering fundraising records for Dr. Paul. I became interested because as a small “L” libertarian I was hoping the movement would truly be about limiting government.

            2007?  Hmmmmm

          • Brett Narloch – NDPC

             Yes, 2007… when the Tea Party started.

          • InTheKnow

            Sure, uh huh.

        • Brett Narloch – NDPC

          We just hosted an event in Williston with a presidential candidate.  We’d love to do an event for every issue in every city but it just can’t happen that way.  I’ve also spoken to the Williston Tea Party several times.

          This is a recognition in the recent success that the Fargo folks have had.

        • InTheKnow

          I would agree dalaibama!  I as well question his motives!

  • cherz1967

    the tea party is not a formal organizaiton, but rather a form of mind except for those who wish to profit from it
