Couldn’t go to the 9/12 March?
Then join us in DC on November 5th
It’s the rally cry that is being heard across the nation.
Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has challenged patriots to storm Washington on Thursday, November 5th, and to stand with her on the steps of the Capitol. (See video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8_XcSHHxDk .) The mission is to stop the House from passing the government-run healthcare bill, H.R. 3962. The Tea Party Patriots, 9.12ers and other freedom-loving groups are heeding her call.
We are excited to announce that the Portage County Tea Party group is organizing buses to DC on Thursday, Nov. 5th. While the details for the buses are still being worked out, we know the cost will be $50 per person round-trip.
Currently, there are no buses leaving from the Cleveland or Medina area. If we are able to fill a bus (50 people) from each location, Tom (the Portage County Tea Party organizer) will arrange a bus to leave from the Cleveland and/or Medina area. When leaving your reservation, make sure to let Tom know you are from the Cleveland or Medina Tea Party Patriots and/or the Cleveland & Medina area.
Leaving: Thursday morning around 4:00 a.m.
Returning: Thursday night around 11:00 p.m.
Location of departure/return: Coordinators for Portage County Tea Party have several ideas for locations in the Streetsboro and Ravenna areas, but it will take until Monday to get permission to use those staging areas. We will let you know as soon as the Portage Tea Party group has confirmed a location.
Reservations: People can reserve a seat on the bus, starting right now, by calling Tom at 330-474-3878. Please leave your name, telephone number and how many seats you need on the answering machine. Someone from the Portage Tea Party group will call you back with details. You can also sign up by sending an e-mail to Info@PortageCountyTEAParty.com.
Payment: Just bring a check to the bus to pay for your seat(s).
Not wanting to go via bus: For those who do not wish to ride one of the buses, we suggest that you carpool. Because the buses are going right to the Capitol building and because parking will be at a premium, we recommend that those carpooling go to Fairfax, Virginia and ride the train into the city.
We have set up a new section of the Cleveland Tea Party website Forum for those wishing to coordinate carpooling: http://www.clevelandteaparty.com/apps/forums/show/2236952-carpool-to-d-c-11-5-2009.
According to our healthcare expert in DC, the House will most likely vote on the bill this Friday (November 6th). We must act NOW. We will never have a better chance to stand up and defeat this bill. Join us in DC, and let’s show Congress that We the People are here to take our country back.
