We were proud to announce this week that the “Tea Party Express III: Just Vote Them Out” tour will take place March 27 – April 15, 2010. We’ve all been working very hard to put this important effort together, and we’re determined to continue our fight against the socialist policies that the White House and Congress have been pursuing.
We have a unique opportunity this coming election to make a profound change in government. One of the members of the left-wing trifecta ruling Washington is Sen. Majority Leader, Harry Reid (D-Nevada).
Reid is up for re-election and we’ve been working hard all year to fight for his defeat.
The principal sponsor of the Tea Party Express, the Our Country Deserves Better Committee, has already spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in TV ads, radio ads, newspaper ads and hosted numerous rallies against Reid.
And so far we’re winning. Harry Reid’s poll numbers continue to fall further and further.
Desperate to cling to power, Reid has already raised nearly $10 million for his re-election campaign. And he recently launched his first television ads in as part of this massive campaign. If you wish you can view those ads – HERE.
The Tea Party Express made a deliberate decision to launch our next tour from Searchlight, NV – the tiny mining town that also happens to be Harry Reid’s hometown, and the place he was born. Searchlight, NV only has a population of around 500 people, but we are going to have a crowd many times that number on hand to launch the latest wave of the “Defeat Harry Reid” campaign.
The Our Country Deserves Better Committee will be producing a new television ad specifically calling out Reid for his disastrous liberal policies, reckless and shameful behavior while in the Senate, and his elitism, arrogance and disdain for the common citizen.
We’re going to need your help to get these ads on the air to contribute to the big launch of the Tea Party Express III and specifically our campaign to put the heat on Reid.
This is an example of the types of actions we will be undertaking for Tea Party Express III, and this is also why we expect this tour to cost more than $500,000. We’re in this to win it, friends.
We are going to launch a series of campaigns against many of the worst offenders in Congress. Harry Reid will just be the first target along the route of our tour.
Friends, these people in Congress have acted with contempt against we the people. They have ignored our phone calls, emails, letters and FAXes urging them to stop their harmful policies that seek to redefine America into some quasi-socialist nation.
They are encumbering us with ever-increasing amounts of debt. They are seeking to have the government take over or control more and more sectors of the economy. They are trying to regulate everything from what kind of lightbulb we use. to how we heat or cool our homes, what kind of car we can drive, and even what banks we will have access to.
But now we’re fighting back – and we’re winning. More and more polls come out showing us winning the battle of ideals against those in Congress who have betrayed the principles of our constitutional Republic.
So please, do help us make this Tea Party Express III a success. The first step is for us to raise the funds to produce our next ad in the campaign to defeat Harry Reid. Then we will have to raise the funds to buy the television air time for the ads.
We will officially launch the ad at the kickoff Tea Party Express III rally in Searchlight, NV with all the national press on hand. So everyone will be seeing the ad and hearing about it.
It will cost us approximately $10,000 to produce the ad and $100,000 for us to purchase ample airtime on Nevada TV stations (and perhaps nationally on cable news networks for added media buzz). Again, this is why we expect this tour to be the biggest, and most expensive one yet. But the rewards for our country and its future will be well worth it.
So we are asking for your support in the form of a contribution to the Tea Party Express III effort. You can contribute any amount from $5 to the maximum allowed $5,000, but we’re going to make an offer for one week only.
For anyone who contributes $100 or more between Thursday, December 10th and Friday, December 18th, we will provide you with a complimentary copy of the Tea Party Express 2010 calendar. And for anyone who contributes $500 or more during this time period, we will provide you with a copy of the calendar autographed by leaders of the Tea Party Express I and II tours.
And if you make your donation by Friday, December 18th at 3:00 PM (Pacific) we will have the calendar sent to you in time for Christmas.
Again, you can make a contribution of any amount from $5 up to the maximum allowed $5,000 online – HERE. We need to raise over $500,000 by the time of the tour launch so we can make a significant impact on the upcoming 2010 elections.
The principal national sponsor of the Tea Party Express, the Our Country Deserves Better Committee, has already raised the first $75,000 towards our $500,000 goal to target liberal members of Congress and ensure their defeat in 2010.
