In case you do read some of the blogs that are aligned with the establishment GOP, please read this:
In order to stay away from blogs and give them traffic they don't deserve, we will state our case here and expose the lies.
1-Russ and Kelly did not get the BTPG off the ground. The members did that. Russ and Kelly worked for Anna Little. If not for the BTPG, they would have had no one to volunteer for them. Like now, actually. Anna's "army" was BTPG and several other tea party groups. BTPG w...ith many other tea party groups, had several vetting sessions and unanimously chose Anna Little to be their "Tea Party Candidate" In fact a member from BTPG thought of the "Tea Party Endorsed" name under which Anna ran. At the time, Russ was a ....blogger. He had nothing to do with BTPG. BTPG was founded a yr before Russ and Kelly and they are still here 2 yrs after. Russ was then hired by Little and that is how he became connected to BTPG. After the elections, Russ wanted to change the BTPG into an "organization" with Barbara being "in charge". That is not how this tea party works. He left because that was not what he wanted and he could not run this group.
2 - Lois, not knowing how to send email properly, inadvertently sent an email to Barbara with a thread attached where she trashed the tea party and was stealing information from the BTPG and sharing it with the GOP. She was the first and only member to be "thrown out". She was caught stealing and spying.
3 - Mark was caught by surveilance camera's putting threatening signs on the windows of BTPG as well as dangerous liquids on the door handles. He was reported to the police, video of him doing these acts are on file and he was sent a letter by an attorney to cease and desist or further action will be taken.
4 - Marcy was in agreement with Russ and was also trying to make an "organization" out of the group. That is not what the members wanted. Marcy left ....with our contact list!
5 - Dwight is a dear friend and ally to not only the BTPG, but all fighters of freedom and liberty. What he does now is extemely valuable to all in the tea party movement.
ALL BUT Dwight ARE GOP PEOPLE BY THE WAY....NOT TEA PARTY.
Now you have it.
We at BTPG will continue to do things OUR way. We have no desire to become a big organization, but instead, a group of citizens that get together, discuss, vote and take action. Sometimes we win, sometimes we don't, but we stand by our principles. Like us or not, that is the Bayshore Tea Party Group. Our hope is that members of ALL tea party groups will stay off the blogs that practice the ART of deceit, scandal and slander. They will do this to intimidate and pit us against each other.
