As founder and CEO of the Mansfield Tea Party, I have become disappointed in those of us that live in the county. Why? Many do not attend their local town hall meetings. And they seem to be the first to say, nobody pays attention to the rural communities.
Many refuse to attend such meetings with our local representatives, let alone vote. Their common answer; politicians do their own thing and will not listen to us, so why bother. Bearing this in mind, how many citizens have small children, grandchildren, or great-grandchildren that listen to negativity on a daily basis? What will life be like in the United States when he or she is older?
Sometimes I have had doubts on those we elect, too. That is why I decided to start this organization. Together we will make a difference and force the politicians to pay attention to those who put them into office. We must change our negativity and fears, and teach the children how to be positive and believe in our system of freedoms and the Constitution.
How many times have you seen, or heard of the calamity mobs have stirred up? The Mansfield Tea Party will not be this type of a mob, but we will warn those we elect, do your job or you are fired!
