Bachmann to Join Palin at National Tea Party Convention

The Minnesota Independent reports that Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is scheduled to join previously announced headliner Sarah Palin at the National Tea Party Convention to be held Feb. 4-6  at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tenn.

From The Minnesota Independent:

[O]rganizers of the National Tea Party Convention tweeted that Bachmann would be a speaker at the Feb. 4–6 event in Nashville. Palin keynotes the convention, which is “aimed at bringing the Tea Party Movement leaders together from around the nation for the purpose of networking and supporting the movements’ multiple organizations principle goals.”

The Nashville Post reports that Palin’s keynote address will be closed to the press.

Tickets for the convention are available for the bargain price of $549. The fine people at the Opryland inform me that the ticket does not include the price of the hotel, where a three-night package starts at $436.99. You’d better book soon, because the Opryland reservations agent told me that just 160 of the hotel’s 2,881 rooms remain available as of this morning.

At a $1,000 a head who are they kidding calling this a tea party convention. It is obviously aimed at lining the pockets of the opportunistic organizer, and has nothing to do with the real grass roots tea party movement.

[...] Sarah Palin will star as the keynote speaker at next February’s First National Tea Party Convention, which will take place in Nashville, TN. Also attending: Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN).

The Tea Party Movement is about to be hijacked. TPN or TeaPartyNation.com organizers are hard lined GOP who use the proverbial veil of “conservatism” to attract supporters.

They also own and are having the National Tea Party Convention soon and are trying to put a face on it and disguise it as “our” convention. Not only that but they have decided to hold it at a ritzy over the top and outrageously expensive Opryland Hotel in Tennessee! When most of us are the working middle class and in the middle of economic hard times it's just ridiculous!

This is where the grassroots tea party revolution will be hijacked by the GOP. TPN is owned by an attorney and through his trained and careful wording believes they have started the tea party movement, of course without saying as much.

They will attempt to consolidate all tea parties and be the ones in charge and leading the direction. If the other independent tea party groups give TPN any more importance, power or control of their direction then the true grass roots movement will die and have been for nothing. I would be very cautious about signing anything from TPN or just skip the convention all together.

Here's how they answer questions to new members asking before deleting their accounts.

“Yes, can TPN please clarify their principals? I see the word “conservative principals” being used often and many broad generalizations. Can you please clarify the goal of TPN? Is the goal to revolutionize the system in a true diverse conservative grassroots takeover? Or do you plan to just get rid of the “RINO's” and return to the “roots” and support towing the party line of the GOP?

Just a little concerned because those “roots” from both parties seem to get “uprooted” every few years and nothing ever changes. So can you please clarify your stance and be specific please? If you do not plan on reviving the hard nosed party line policies of the GOP, can you please explain what stances you'd approach differnetly and why? Thanks”

Sherry Phillips (owners wife) welcome to TPN, please click the FAQ page to read what TPN stands for.

Judson Phillips(owner) Welcome, please browse the comments and discussions and you will find your answer.

(me)Yes I have read the FAQ's and read some discussions. I do not want to rely on the opinions of your members in informal discussions. I am looking for a straight forward honest answer from the leaders and organizers of TPN before I choose to get involved and active.

I am expecting an answer like a neighbor would give vs. a politician unable to give a simple answer. I think that's fair, here are the questions your FAQ page raises for me. Can you please clarify? Your time is appreciate, thanks.

What Is The TPN?

“Tea Party Nation is a group of like-minded individuals who believe in our God given Individual Freedoms written out by the Founding Fathers. We believe in Limited Government, Free Speech, the Second Amendment, our Military, Secure Borders and our Country!”

Saying that you believe in Limited Government, Free Speech, the Second Amendment, our Military, Secure Borders and our Country is certainly conservative, but is very broad as it is also not only conservative values but GOP values as well.

What Are The Goals of TPN?

“It is our hope that Tea Party Nation helps its members focus on ideas, solutions and actions to help one another in this fight against liberalism and the reach of an ever-expanding government who has ignored the will of “We the People” for far too long.”

Ok, I understand the fight against liberalism and the reach of an ever-expanding government that ignores the will of the people. Doesn't this include the GOP equally the same as the left?

What Is The Plan Of TPN?

“We hope to provide the tools and communication necessary for organizing against a government who has stopped listening to the people who put them in office. We want to help our members take those who are unresponsive to “We the People” out of office and replace them with those who hold Conservative values.”

Again, many who hold “conservative values” are the GOP who are equally as guilty to being unresponsive to the will of the people.

TPN's response: They banned my account. Nice.
