If you were not able to join us today, no worry! This was only the first of many events to come! We will have our voices heard! This is our country too! We are mad as hell and are not going to take it anymore! It is time for us to band together and stand up for what we believe in people! Today was a great first step!
If you missed it, Greta's lead story on the Fox News Channel tonight was "Breaking" news of the tea parties across the country! Our very own Jenny Beth Martin and Debbie Ellis were featured in interviews in the piece! Woohoo! Way to go girls! Y'all are both stars!
I hope everyone is all dried out and warm by now! I am dry, but cannot get warm! However, my soul is warm from thoughts of today! What a day!
Y'all rock! Thanks you for being part of this special day! Please leave your thoughts in the comments section below! If you have any pictures or videos to share, you can leave the links below or email email@example.com!
Rest well Patriots! We have a long fight ahead! Remember, we can do this!

We can do this y'all! Please copy and forward to everyone you know! Make this go viral!
Thank you for your interest and participation in the Atlanta Tea Party! We have had an overwhelming response and expect to have a very successful showing of supporters! We are already getting a lot of media attention, both local and national.
We are 24 hours away from this very important event! Please recruit everyone you can to come with you! Bring your neighbors, colleagues, family, friends, acquaintances, even strangers! People are even talking about bringing their children because this is their money the government is spending. The point is that the more in attendance, the louder we will be and we want to be heard in Washington!
We want those Senators and Congressmen to know we hired them, we can fire them! They work for us and enough is enough!
We have had a tremendous outreach of support and volunteers. I have received hundreds of emails asking what people can do to help and the answer is to bring everyone you can, bring your cameras and camcorders, and also make signs on poster boards. I am including some slog listed below for use on the signs. Also, remember to bring at least one tea bag per person, if not more!
This is going to be fun! I hope you are excited as the committee members are that have planned this event! We are looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!
Please look for another message from us later today! Have a great day!

12:00 Noon EST
Location: Georgia State Capitol Building
ATLANTA Tea Party FaceBook Event Info
As a result of Rick Santelli's rant on CNBC earlier this week, there is now a nationwide movement to hold tea parties at various locations throughout the US in order to protest the Obama Administration's economic policies and liberal spending bills! Conservatives, Liberals, and Independents are all involved in this effort! Talk about bipartisan support...this movement is full of bipartisan support! Perhaps the Adminstration and our no good, spend, spend, spend, and spend some more Congress could learn a thing or two from this effort! First, they are going to have to get their heads out of their a**es! Perhaps this movement will get their attention!
The bottom line is that we the people are fed up with the shenanigans of Washington! This movement is the beginning of having our voices heard and taking back our government that has been hijacked by a bunch of egotistical politicians that are out of touch with reality!
To move quickly with this effort, Top Conservatives on Twitter, Smart Girl Politics, the DontGo Movement, Americans for Tax Reform, the Heartland Institute, and American Spectator Magazine have joined forces to announce a “Nationwide Chicago Tea Party”, to be held on Friday, February 27 at noon EST. The tea party will be held simultaneously in Chicago, Washington DC, Atlanta, Orlando, and other locations around the US. This event will also be held on Twitter using the #teaparty hashtag.
If you are in Georgia and would like to participate or assist with this event, please contact me. We definitely want this event to be successful and the more people in attendance, the bigger statement we make and the more successful we will be in having our voices heard! We can do this people! Don't let any of these other cities put us to shame! Bring your best southern hospitality and let's have some fun while making a statement! We are working on local media being in attendance along with some state legislators. We are also hoping to get some publicity from local radio shows! As you know, the more people in attendance, the more publicity we will get! This event will be held Friday at 12 noon so what a great way to kick off your weekend. Happy hour will sure feel good on Friday! So what do you say...come join me for the party!
For more information, please refer to the FaceBook Event page and/or www.nationwidechicagoteaparty.com. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org or email me directly at email@example.com.
If you have any contacts with state officials or local media, we sure can use your help in getting their attention! Even if you cannot attend, please consider helping in coordinating a successful event!
I hope you will join me! They more the merrier!
