I wanted to take a few minutes to tell you about changes happening at Tea Party Nation. Some have already happened and some will be happening during this summer.
First, some of you have noted that TPN now has a much more frequent presence in Washington. A few weeks ago, we moved most of TPN’s operations from Nashville to Virginia. This is allowing us to have a greater presence in the capitol.
TPN participated in the recent meeting of the Congressional Tea Party Caucus along with Herman Cain, TheTeaParty.net, Western Representation Pac and Tea Party Patriots.
Thursday night, TPN will be part of the Virtual Town Hall to be held with the Tea Party Caucus, TheTeaparty.net, and other national Tea Party and Liberty groups. That event will be live streamed on Unityrally2012.com.
Every day I receive emails from people talking about my blogging. Most of those emails are very kind. A few come from nutty liberals. I love writing and blogging. I’ve been asked, why do you put so much out on TPN? The answer is I love this country, I love keeping people informed and I love doing what I’m doing.
However, because of all of the time I have having to now spend in Washington, it is taking away from the time I have to write. So we are looking for a few good bloggers. I wish blogging paid. It doesn’t. However, you do get your blogs out there.
If you would like to submit a blog for TPN, as some of our regular writers like Alan Caruba, Lloyd Marcus, Jack Kemp, John Wiseman and others do, we would love to have them.
If you want to blog, submit it under the “add a blog” feature on the blog page. Your blog will not appear immediately. We screen all of the blogs. We try to time our blogs for maximum effect. Some blogs will be approved. Some will be approved and featured in our emails.
The blogs we are looking for run 500 to 1000 words. Make sure you save your blog on your computer as every now and then we have a glitch with our system. If the system loses your blog, we cannot recover it.
Speaking of system glitches, many of you noticed the problems we had a few weeks ago with our messaging system. For a period of time, almost no email messages were sent out, then suddenly many of your mail boxes were flooded with emails. Some of those emails were old emails.
The problem was with the NING system that we use. A number of other Tea Party sites had the same problem and if you belong to those sites you may have seen the problems there as well.
The good news is NING seems to have fixed this problem. At TPN we have been working on a solution to this as well and in the few weeks we will be rolling our solution out and I think you will like it.
We have several more projects in the works that we will be announcing before the end of the summer so you will want to stay tuned for those.
The big project at the end of the summer that TPN is involved in is the Unity Rally 2012. This will happen on August 26th, the day before the Republican Convention starts.
You will want to be in Tampa on August 26th for this incredible event. We will be releasing more details on this shortly.
Finally I want to take a moment to thank each of you for being a part of Tea Party Nation.
Rush Limbaugh says he is doing what he was born to do. I feel the same way. To be able to do what I am doing makes me the luckiest man alive.
I want to thank each of you for what you do and thank you for being a part of Tea Party Nation.
Thanks to TPN and the countless other organizations keeping us informed. We do what we can on the ground level, too, within the REC, 9-12 Teaparty Group, social media of all kinds, etc. Never give up. The hard work and struggle is worth it. Our Constitution and our nation deserve no less. God Bless!
Thank you, Judson, for all that you do in keeping us informed in the Conservative way, according to the Constitution given to us by our Founding Fathers. You spark discussion on any given topic. It's a great learning experience. You, Sherry & your blog team contribute greatly to the fight for the life of our great country.
God bless you and your family for the sacrifices you are making.
PS Welcome to VA.
You are good man. I/we appreciate all that you do here and behind the scenes.
Keep up the good work. Thank you
A GREAT BIG THANK YOU to you and to all your bloggers for all that you do. I have learned so much from you and from all those who reply to your discussions. Continue to follow your heart's desire informing the American people with truth and honesty. May God Bless and protect this great Country of ours and come November, may we celebrate with new leadership in the WH that we deserve.
This is my favorite Tea Party site. I've submitted several blogs - mostly philosophical and hope the next one on our Nation's Moral Compass is useful. I have to knock it down from 2,900 words, but who reads that much anyway?
Stay the course. The RINO pubs need to examine their navel and become part of us rather than remain apart from us. They are adding no value to our nation and tend to hinder conservative progress. Glad you're in VA where you can get int heir face a bit more.
Many thanks, Judson, for all your blogs and for keeping us so well informed.
And thanks to all your bloggers as well.
And, Judson, can we please get ALL the blogs on TPN in the "Reply" format, like this one? Pretty please? With sugar on top?
If anyone else agrees, please let Judson know!
One of my favorite lines from the movie "LONESOME DOVE" is when Robert Duval says" Just once I would like to shoot at an educated man, I'm so tired of shooting dummies!! Since I joined Tea Party Nation I feel like I'm having conversations with real Americans who sleep soundly from hard honest work, help others when they can and only stick their hand out when they want to greet fellow Great Americans.
