Fellow Members of the King George TEA Party:
Most important to put out first is this announcement about THIS Wednesday's Splash Of TEA online meeting. One of the most significant issues this election is that of vote fraud… and this streamed meeting will host two experts talking about that very issue. EVERYONE is strongly encouraged to listen in on this Facebook Live event (and no, you do NOT need a Facebook account to listen in on the discussion):
Facebook Live - Virginia TEA PartySplash Of TEA - 7:00 PM Wednesday 16 September 2020
The TEA Party is on a roll, folks. Check out what the Portsmouth, Virginia TEA Party are doing:
Portsmouth Tea Party Calling for Senator Lucas to be Removed, Police Chief Greene Reinstated
I thought this paragraph was most important because it demonstrates how active and effective the TEA Party has been to address corruption:
"Velez said the Portsmouth Tea Party has a plan to stop Lucas. The first step is a petition. If enough people sign the petition, Velez said Lucas will be recalled, resulting in a new election. According to Tim Anderson, another Portsmouth Tea Party leader, the petition only needs 500 more signatures."
Again, I am going to change things up a bit. Instead of passing on the latest TEA Party-related news I will just focus on the Republican and Democrat Party platforms as published during their recent conventions. This should help you crystalize the vast chasm between both parties when it comes to America's future.
First off, here is the link to President Trump's agenda for his second term:
August 23, 2020TRUMP CAMPAIGN ANNOUNCES PRESIDENT TRUMP'S 2ND TERM AGENDA: FIGHTING FOR YOU!
Below is the entire Trump agenda. It is pithy, organized, and demonstrates a continued America First perspective. It reminds me of a business plan because it provides enough information describing **what** will be accomplished without itemizing at length **how** things will be done. Within a minute anyone can skim the entire document and get a sense of what issues will be addressed in the next four years. In a nutshell, it is readable by anyone and that lends a sense of transparency in leadership.

In stark contrast is the Democrat Party platform. Where the Trump agenda is described above in about two pages and is easily 'digested' by anyone wanting to get a sense of where he is leading the country… the Democrat's platform is a 92-page diatribe. I doubt that even a die-hard Democrat would read the whole thing… and I think that is the point. It smacks of obfuscation because so many special interest nuggets can be buried in the ponderous narrative. Just skimming it reminds me of Nancy Pelosi's famous quote, "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it."
There is no way I can provide complete analysis of the Democrat's 92-page manifesto. Instead I will provide just the Table of Contents because in form it is similar to President Trump's document. Anyone can skim their Table of Contents and get a good sense of where the Democrats would lead our country… and by doing so I believe the hair will stand up on the back of your neck. To give you a sense of the Democrat's priorities, notice that their section titled "Advancing American Interests" is the absolute last 5 pages of their 92-page document. This is indicative of what we should expect from the Democrats.
I highlighted some things that I thought to be the most disturbing. Many of the items below begged the question, "How are you going to do that, Bucko?" Egregious examples include "Guaranteeing Safe Housing for Every American," "Ending Poverty," and "Guaranteeing a Secure and Dignified Retirement" among others. In a word, these three are Socialist agenda items, period. But check it out for your self.
