Actions Speak Louder than Words
Time for You to Make a Difference in Changing Congress
 
 
 
WE MUST KNOW YOUR ANSWER IN THE
 
NEXT 72 HOURS
 
All of us have stated more than once, "Remember in November!" or "Flip the House" or "Throw Them All Out" or "They All Need to Go!"
 
So...do you really want to make a difference in Virginia politics?  Itching to do something about the mid-term elections?  Here's your chance!
 
Changing congress doesn't happen magically. It happens when those of us in our homes with our busy family lives put in the extra work to make it happen. If we wait until Election Day, it is too late.
 
The Richmond Tea Party wants to answer a call for help from the tea parties in the 9th District (southwest Virginia) and from Americans for Limited Government (http://www.getliberty.org/).  But we need your help to do it. 
 
They have asked that we send a busload of volunteers to Christiansburg on Saturday, September 11th to help hand out voter guides in a door-to-door campaign to highlight the differences between the candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives.
 
The current representative is Rick Boucher (D, currently serving his 14th term) who is a tax and spend liberal and supporter of Cap & Trade legislation. Congressman Boucher's Cap & Trade vote is immensely unpopular in a district dependent on the coal industry for employment and where unemployment is already exceptionally high compared to other parts of Virginia.
 
His challenger is Morgan Griffith (R, who has been serving on the VA House since 1994 and is the current Majority Leader;(http://www.delegatemorgangriffith.com/about.shtml). 
 
If you have the time, we need your help to make a difference!
 
Details:
 
The 47-passenger bus will depart from the Short Pump Target parking lot at 5:30 AM on Saturday, September 11th.    We recommend that you arrive by 5:00 AM.
 
Richmond Tea Party will pay for the bus, so there is no charge for the volunteers.  But, we will ask that you sign a waiver of liability statement prior to boarding the bus.
 
Breakfast will be served in Christiansburg at 8:30 Saturday morning and we'll get started around 9:00 and will depart to come home at 5:00 PM.  We will be provided all materials, training, and transportation.
 
IMPORTANT:
 
We have to confirm the bus to James River Bus Lines no later than Tuesday, September 7th, so if you can help, please respond as soon as possible to susanl@richmondteaparty.com.  Please provide your name and phone number.  Every person will be contacted by phone prior to departure.
 
We need to see if we have enough interest. We have 72 hours to make a determination. Let us know ASAP.
 
Now is the time to make a difference on the issues that are important to the tea party grassroots. Let's roll!!!
