Focus for Action

Members of the Fredericksburg Tea Party responded to a FOCUS for ACTION survey and the results were presented at our annual Members Diner.  The Tea Party Members have a broad range of concerns and yet have a defined core of the issues that effect our liberty and freedom from being eroded away bit-by-bit.

We would like to share our conclusion with our readers.

            • 96% responded that immigration and asylum is high or highest in importance
            • 87% responded that 2nd Amendment Constitutional carry is high or highest in importance.
            • 86% responded that ethics problems with elected representatives is high or highest in importance.
            • 70% responded that Single-Payer Medicare for all is low or lowest in importance.

These are no shocker in that the values of sovereignty, morals, individuality, and God given rights are at the heart of our belief.

What is FOCUS for ACTION?  It is small groups that take up an issue, like one from above or any that are important to you.  The groups meet independently to learn and discuss, and then to set a course of action. Then along with the resources, contacts, and government experience that the Fredericksburg Tea Party will provide, Focus groups will have the means to force effective change of our unproductive Legislature.
