Ten Tips for a Better Tea Party … and Tools You Can Use

leave a comment »

Couldn’t pass up mentioning this piece from WPRI, which is making the rounds today.

One point bears repeating. “Tell us what to do.” In other words, the challenge for the Tea Party Movement is to translate feel-good political bashing into action. After all, the Founding Fathers did a lot more than have a tea party.

In fact, they made ongoing and significant sacrifices for freedom – sacrificing their money, time and, even, lives in some cases. We aren’t being called to do that. But, still, there is plenty we should – and can do.

Fortunately, we here at the Policy Council have provided the tools South Carolinians need to reform their state government.

And, as we announced at the tea parties last week, the newest of these tools is South Carolina Votes. This new website will allow ordinary South Carolinians to easily track and comment on legislation being considered in Columbia.

Along with South Carolina Votes, there is also The Nerve. This is not just a news site – it’s a citizen journalist movement that gives concerned citizens across the state an opportunity to report on what is happening in their local communities.

Finally, provides in-depth analysis on important issues while is becoming a nexus for independent business leaders.

Want to know what you can do to make South Carolina better? Get involved. We’ve given you the tools for success. The rest is up to you.
