Seven Tea Parties Scheduled For North Dakota Later This Month

tea party caucus ndtpc

During yesterday’s North Dakota House debate, liberal candidate Pam Gulleson referred to the tea party movement as “extremists” in her opening statement. Which is funny. Under the control of Gulleson’s party, the federal government has run an annual budget deficit of over $1 trillion per year for what will be, at the end of this fiscal year, four consecutive years. President Obama, who will be on the top of the ballot for Democrats, has added more debt to the nation’s $16 trillion total in less than four years than all 42 other presidents combined. The #1 area of federal spending is writing checks to people, even as the number of people paying for the federal government shrinks to a minority.

If opposing all that makes we tea partiers extremists, then yes we’re the most extreme people you’ve ever met in your life. And we extremists are going to be rallying across North Dakota later this month on September 17th.

The North Dakota Tea Party Caucus is coordinating the rallies, which are all locally organized. Their flyer is below, or keep an eye on this link for updated information. For you readers who are interested, I’ll be speaking at the event in Jamestown. Other events across the state will be in Grand Forks, Fargo, Bismarck, Dickinson, Williston and Minot.

The NDTPC also wanted me to mention that they’re holding an essay contest for high school and college students. They have a $500 prize for each category for the best written or video essay. Details here.

September 17

    Seven Tea parties? This is like bragging we are going to have an idiots convention in North Dakota. Even the Republicans have realized how crazy this bunch is and the destructive nature of their right wing lunacy.

    • Emil/Hanni/Albert are Idiots!

      Wow, you really are an idiot aren’t you!

      Idiot convention? You’re a little late to the party. The Democrats already had their convention in ND.

        Where is the meeting? Our town was recently taken over by the Tea Party mentality. The disaster is just starting to bloom. We had some reasonable conservatives in the city commission. Now, the dingers have taken over. Not looking good. This is exactly what the Tea Party has done on a national level. They have become tools of the rich no tax policy.

          Locations are listed on the flyer above. Come and explain the disasters and who the “dingers” are and why it’s not looking good.

      Perhaps you could give us some examples of things they have “destroyed”.

    Interesting that Rob the spinner has stayed away from Clinton’s speech last night. Clinton shamed the rats back into their holes.

      Lickspittle is SO befitting. Sycophant comes to mind… bootlicker, lackey, flunky…. butt remora.

    The biggest threat to our national security is our debt. We need very large across the board cuts in federal spending. We must cut from SS, Medicare, and the military. The tea party needs to attack the big three or all this talk is just rhetoric.

    • Albert Lickenspittle

      But we still must keep the 700 billion for the Bush Tax cuts for the rich. We must not make the rich mad or uncomfortable, so lets just cut the things everyday people need.
