My Biggest Regret of the Tea Party Movement
August 3, 2014
It was 2010. St. Louis was the epicenter of the Tea Party movement. Tea Party Patriots picked St. Louis to host the Gateway to November rally under the Arch. Unlike our rag-tag events, this one would be professional all the way: live music with Sounding Fathers, speakers you heard of before the movement began in February 2009, and real security. The guest speakers began rolling into town on Friday the tenth.
Beyond The Dip
August 4, 2010
I received a couple of phone calls this morning. Maybe because of the primary election in Missouri. Or is the stifling, stale heat of August that drove the calls? Either way, I believe the calls represent very good news. We survived The Dip (Godin, 2007). Back in April, I sensed a dip in the burgeoning grassroots movement. By June 1, my suspicions were confirmed and I blogged about The Dip.
