Tea Party at my House!

Tea Party at my House! Or rather The House, on January 3rd, 2011. I went off on a bit of a tangent leaving a comment over at Mean Ol' Meany's blog.  It got me thinking about what's next for fiscal restraint in America. Here's the relevant part of what I wrote (emphasis added);
Consider it a free market system of votes. If the public doesn't buy what the GOP are selling because they liken it to a Chevy Volt, they won't buy it. So the GOP will continually have to strive to do more for the next two years...

For the GOP to go back to business as usual and pick up from 2006 is political suicide... But we have to keep in mind that the INCREDIBLE MESS the country is in is bigger than Obamacare (for any liberals reading, it's not all Bush's fault either). The problem took 70 years to get to this critical mass. It's going to take 20 years to fix and probably 100 years to pay it all off. But that doesn't mean that you don't take that first step because it's only a yard instead of a mile...

The next Tea Party should be held on the very first day of the next Congress. Tea Parties must not stop. The Mainstream media might even cover them with a bit of fairness and vigor as they'll see it as targeting the GOP now. So what? The message is the important thing - fix the spending and fix the debt. After that, the important thing will be who listens.
You can read my whole comment here.

Why is it so important to keep the Tea Parties going?

(1) To prove this is bigger than the Democrats or the GOP.
(2) To prove that the Tea Parties mean business and are a force, not just over.
(3) To keep the GOP's feet to the fire.
(4) To make clear where the real resistance to real change (fiscal sanity) lies. could be the GOP, but it's probably the President and the liberal remaining Senators and Congressman.

A great place to start would be at the start of the new Congress. Somebody just has to organize it.  Sadly for me I'm not only Canadian, I'm relatively broke and relatively busy, otherwise I'd do it.  Also, my house isn't big enough.
