I finally made it to the Mechanicsville Tea Party tonight at the old East Hanover firehouse.  I was expecting ten or maybe twenty committed activists there; the place was packed – nearly every seat was filled.  Perhaps 90 or so.  I was recognized by one of the organizers as the “blog guy” who had been helping out.  I even got an assignment to speak to the education program on the so-called separation of church of state.  I was glad to sign up!

The Mechanicsville Tea Party meets every other Thursday night (next meeting is October 7 at 7 pm) and meets every Tuesday night with a educational program.  They had the Milton Friedman series, the Tea Party Documentary and last week Generation Zero.  We may have a treat for the TEA very soon.

The organizer confirmed GREAT news:  The Saturday AM speaker at the Virginia Tea Party Convention on October 9 will be none other than the father of the tea party – Cong. Ron Paul!  I plan to be there as a blogger!

I was excited to see so many involved; I want to say they need more young adults but I hope as they grow they will have more people attending.  They might have to open the firehouse garage for the overflow!
