Re: [HRPatriots] local groups

I hear you Shirley,
Your e-mail falls upon my own sense of responsibility and even guilt.  I'm sure there are a million stories in the big city but my excuses have to do with little time and no money. 
I'm so busy dodging bullets that I can't join the fight.  Our businesses are hurting because of the taxation and impossibility of competing with Newport News.  I.e. "entertainment tax" just went form 7.5% (already too high) to 10%.  That puts a serious burden on our already economy diminished business so they can use the money to build 4 new K-3-5 schools (essentially free daycare) that is killing my biggest tenant, a daycare that occupies 3 spaces. 
Everywhere I turn I'm staring at the bank or the government coming for money I don't have.  I have to do all the landscaping (where I should be right now) because I can't afford it. 
I know that part of the plan (conscious or not) is to keep us so damn overwhelmed that we can't fight.  Unfortunately it is working all too well.  Still Sandy has been able to get out and canvas a little.  Let me know if you need a place to meet, I believe we can use LazerRush for up to about 30 folks on a Monday night when we're closed.
Thanks for your motivational reminder.  I don't know where you always seem to have all that positive energy.  "They will run and not grow tired," comes to mind, perhaps we run healthier when our cause is just.
Let's make the effort to rekindle our love for all humanity because if we let it die here, it will die everywhere.
Keep the faith,

P.S. My Sunday is full.

Subject: [HRPatriots] local groups

Hello everyone
Are these 2 groups still active? Does anyone in the Hampton Roads Patriots and Peninsula TEA Party get involved in local politics anymore? I only see emails but no calls for action. I've invited members to help with sign waves, door knocking, phone calling, etc but no one ever responds, so I'm under the impression these groups are only active via the exchange of emails and such.
If anyone does want to do something besides email and post, let me know.
If ever there was a time for people to group together and grow their numbers, it is now.
Everyone is scattered, and when the boom comes down, we'll be out of touch.
It's coming. The gun grab is next. Obama has been testing the degree of resistance he might encounter for his gun grab by first pushing us via the TSA, NSA, the shutdown and treatment of Vets. We didn't riot or even push back to any significant degree. He thinks we are all bark and no bite and is pretty much resigned to believe we will act thusly when DHS comes knocking, that we will just willingly hand over our guns.
He is scrubbing our military clean of Constitutionally grounded generals and top commanders and militarizing our police forces. We all know this.
The fact that there are no groups meeting on this side of the water anymore is very troubling. I see other groups on twitter across the country who are cohesive and continue to grow. I would hope that those of us still getting emails would be involved in this election. I know some of you are and are working hard for Cuccinelli, Jackson, and Obenshain as well as for our General Assembly candidates.
I want to do a sign wave sometime this weekend but unless we have at least a dozen of us, it won't look very good. Reply back if you are interested. Someone needs to show this area we all aren't apathetic and detached from the real world, that some of us here DO care who gets into office.
God bless~
