Some of the folk on the left have stated the Tea Party is gone and no longer a force to be counted in the upcoming political contests. I truly pray that is not the situation - yet, we attended the Tea Party rally yesterday at the J.C. Nichol's fountain at the Kansas City Plaza and there were maybe 50 attendees. I believe the elections this Fall will be the most significant in our lifetimes and that it's effects could change our nation for generations. We flexed the Tea Party muscle in 2010 and modified the face of the "House" and almost won back the "Senate". Whether we choose to believe it or not, Obama is a formidable opponent and he has millions of "Kool-Aid" drinkers fawning over his every word. Mit Romney is our champion, yet his campaign thus far seems to be reminiscent of McCain in 2008. I hope and pray Mit will start illustrating that he has the "fire" to compete and that the Tea Party will once again become a force in the political arena. We all must pledge our time and resources if we want to be successful in November.
