Local activists met on the Morristown Green on Saturday, April 16, for the third annual Tax Day Tea Party. The cold wet weather did not deter hardy A3P members and other concerned Americans from exercising their First Amendment! We distributed numerous “Globalization: Not A Good Thing” cards to our fellow, open-minded folk. More importantly, A3P used the occasion to engage in a healthy dialogue by conducting impromptu interviews with some of the other attendees.
Chuck from Morris County said, “We want to keep our own identity. If we globalize we no longer have an identity. Do you want to give up your identity as an American?”
When asked why they were out in the pouring rain for this event, Nancy, a retired area resident, summed it up: “I do not like the direction that the country is going.” Regarding affirmative action, Nancy simply stated that, “…it hasn’t worked.” Linda was there to “Save our country for our Grandchildren.”
Tea Party events have become fertile ground to promote our cause over the last two years. A3P routinely plants seeds at these events throughout Metro New York. Directly engaging our people is one of the most effective ways of conveying our message. Overall this Tea Party event was a very positive and uplifting experience, and A3P successfully brought our message home to many.
