Day after tomorrow, the local Tea Party will be hosting a "see what we're all about" meeting. I think I will attend. During the past couple of years, it has been my experience that people who identify themselves as "Tea Partiers" are among the smartest folks I've encountered. And the dumbest. There's diversity for ya.
I see a great deal of potential for good here, but I'm afraid the Tea Party may have already neutered itself by aligning itself with "Big Business" and the Republican Party, both of which have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo.
I'll be wearing my Gunwalker t-shirt. The little red devil on my shoulder wants me to really stir thing up by wearing my "Love Jesus? Hate Bigotry? johnshore.com" t-shirt, but first impressions are important. I wouldn't want any heads to explode. Yet.
