Saturday, October 2, 2010
It's imperative we remain focused and engaged. We've decided to devote our efforts towards concentrating on the elections in November. During the summer, we will work with all the local groups that support the Naples Tea Party and promote their various activities such as neighborhood precinct strategy, political candidate forums, voluntary campaign help and educational seminars. There is plenty for you to do, so keep alert with all the Tea Party updates and decide what is best for your individual time and circumstances.
National Tea Party rallies will be held in Washington the end of August and middle of September. Many of you have indicated you are making plans to attend. Therefore, we have decided to hold our fall Tea Party a little later, so as not to conflict with the national rallies. Plus, many of our seasonal Naples Tea Party Patriots will be back to join us.
At this time, I would like everyone to mark your calendar for the next big
Naples Tea Party event......."Remember In November."
Date: Saturday, October 2, 2010
Time: 12 Noon
Location: Pine Ridge Road and US 41
This Tea Party will be exactly one month before the national elections. We plan on making it our biggest one yet. We had between seven and eight thousand people at our April 15th rally which was held on a work day. Let's all pitch in to promote October 2nd, draw over 10,000 and stretch out for miles along US 41. Start e-mailing and contacting all your friends regarding this Tea Party and have them do the same.
Three music stations will be set up with the ability for political candidates to join us and give a short talk. Conservative groups will provide booths in order to talk to people and pass out literature to promote their mission. Tea Party Teams will again be organized to advertise the event. Please think about volunteering for this important job. It's the only way we have to promote Tea Party events.........remember the Naples Tea Party is truly grass roots........we do not have a checking account to pay for television or newspaper adds.
Support the activities our our local groups.

October 2nd Naples Tea Party Flyer
Naples Tea Party
Patriots...........Don't forget about the upcoming events this week.
The Council for
Constitutional Principles will host Florida gubernatorial candidate Rick
Scott on Saturday, August 14th at 7:00 PM at the VFW on Pine Ridge Road in
Naples. This will be a good chance for those wishing to participate at
an informal gathering to hear Rick Scott speak and ask him some questions.
There will be a $5 admission charge, with all the proceeds going to the
"Wounded Warrior Project."
Sunday, August 15th, at 1:00 PM, there will be an organizational
meeting to form teams and discuss strategy to promote the Naples Tea Party
on October 2nd. It will be held at The Keys Grill in the Pavilion
shopping Center on US 41 and Vanderbilt. Not everyone will be able to
attend the meeting on the 15th, so attached is the flyer that we will be
handing out in order to help promote the event on October 2nd. To save
money, we will cut the page in half and double the number of flyers.
Feel free to run
copies and start passing them out on your own. Post the flyer
everywhere you get the chance. Go to where large amounts of people are
and hand them out. Call people on the phone. E-mail
everyone you know and tell them to do the same. If we are to attract
the largest number of people ever at our next Tea Party, we all need to help
out. The goal is to get over 10,000 people at the October 2nd rally,
which is exactly one month before the election.
Do not be timid.
This is our last chance to take back America. The next election is the
most important in our lifetime. Let us make the difference towards
preserving America's greatness.

Tea Party Patriots.........The countdown continues. More than ever we
need your help if we are to make a difference in the November election.
is reassuring to find out that there is a working relationship between the
Naples Tea Party and the local Republican Party. Everyone must work
together to elect Conservative candidates and NOT RINOs! Along
with other Naples Tea Partiers, my wife Jackie and I spent two hours
last week at the Republican Party of Collier County headquarters.
Republican Party of Collier County would like Tea Party members to pick
the the conservative Republican candidate of their choice and help them get
elected in November.
They could really use some additional help if the job is to get done.
Please, if you could just spend an hour or two each week, it would make all
the difference in the world.
Republican Party headquarters is located at 2500 Tamiami Trail
North.....across from the Red Lobster. Their phone number is 732-0885.
Call them today and arrange a schedule for the dates and times you can work.

In advance of the exciting 'Freedom Rocks' event with Judge Andrew
Napolitano at Germain Arena on September 27th, some are
distributing flyers to businesses and schools in Collier, Lee and

be willing to leave some flyers at those locations or post one on a bulletin
If you would like to print out a few flyers to help us with this endeavor,
please email me and I'll send you the flyer file. If you would like to pick
up flyers instead, please email or call and we can make a convenient meeting
place either Tuesday or Wednesday, September 8th or 9th.
Also, if you have a business or workplace where flyers can be posted or made
available to employees or patrons, or a favorite coffee house or restaurant,
please let me know and we'll see that a supply is dropped off, or flyers can
be picked up at Mike Couture's Revolve Racing Products, 1100 Commercial
Blvd., Suite 114, Naples 34104, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Tel:
239-774-6686. Please call Mike first to be sure that flyers are available to
be picked up.
Thank you so much and hope to see you at 'Freedom Rocks,'
looking beyond the November elections, towards the 2012 elections and the
defeat of the Progressives, the Left and all those Professional Politicians
whose aim is to fill-up their pockets while abusing the uneducated American
electors - the vast majority of our fellow citizens - by convincing them
that their well being depends on the generosity of a welfare state taking
from the have to redistribute to the have not, through the Socialist miracle
named confiscatory taxation.
that end, American Conservative Institute LLC., has created a unique as
well as unprecedented easy to absorb, on line, course titled American
Civism 101. Check it out at: http://www.americanconservativeinstitutellc.org/moodle/
The flyers promoting "Remember In November," our next
Naples Tea Party on October 2nd at 12 Noon till 2:00 on Pine Ridge Road
and U.S 41 are available at Signs To Go, located at 10611 North Tamiami
Trail. Stop by and pick some up in order to help promote the event. If
that is not convenient, call me (498-8787) and I will deliver them to
you. Our goal is to get over 10,000 people at this event and we need
everyone to spread the word. Glenn Beck attracted half a million
people, the event this coming weekend in
DC will draw several hundred thousand more, Judge Napolitano and
"freedom" will "rock" Germain Arena on the 27th,
and our last Tea Party of the year will not go unnoticed. Only a few
weeks to go...........don't stop now.
Please note this correction. The final Tea Party in

FOUR CORNERS OF THIS BUSIEST INTERSECTION IN LEE COUNTY COVERED WITH
PATRIOTS WAVING AMERICAN FLAGS, WEARING PATRIOTIC SHIRTS AND WAVING SIGNS
WITH POSITIVE AND HOPEFUL MESSAGES.
always, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call. There is
so much going on, and I know how busy everyone is. But, individual
freedom that comes with personal responsibility is on the line........so, we'll
all keep up the good fight.
Party Update Of Events
Sunday, September 19, 2010
Hello all Naples Tea
Party Patriots.......There is now less than two weeks to go before making our
final Tea Party statement heading into the election.
On September 27, 2010 the
SWFL 9-12 Project will host "Freedom Rocks" with Judge Andrew
Napolitano at Germain Arena. This event is an outreach to the
community and to students.
Our goal is to fill
Germain Arena, so all members are encouraged to invite friends, family,
neighbors, co-workers and students to join us for an evening with Judge
Andrew Napolitano. His keynote topic at this event, “Constitution in
Exile”, is also the title of his New York Times bestseller.
The program will start off
with the live Fellowbliss Band at 7:00,
followed by other terrific young speakers, and the Judge will will
deliver his inspirational speech around 8:00. The program emcee will
be Trey Radel, host of the morning talk show "Daybreak" on FOX
Tickets for Freedom Rocks
with Judge Andrew Napolitano are now available. The prices if you
pick up the tickets at the Germain box office are less expensive......$53
for premium seats on the floor, $28 for regular seats and student tickets
are $13. Student tickets are only available at the Germain box office. You
can also go to ticketmaster.com to purchase tickets...they are more
expensive with the Ticketmaster fees.
For more information, you
can call Cheryl Couture at 285-9697 or log onto:
timing of this event is no accident, as it follows Constitution Day on
September 17 and Freedom Week, September 20-24, 2010.
the planned Naples Tea Party (Remember In November) to be held on
Saturday, October 2nd at 12 noon till 2:00 on Pine Ridge Road and U.S. 41.
This will be the final Naples Tea Party of the year, so it will be your last
chance before the election to make your voices heard. If you have not
attended a Tea Party, this is the one you will want to be at. Several
candidates running for local and federal office will be there and you
will have a chance to meet them.
there will be a straw vote on the important races in Florida and the results
will be published before the election to give voters an idea which
candidates Naples Tea Party members support. Keep spreading the
word. If we are to get over 10,000 people at this Tea Party, the final
two week push is critical. Many Patriots are actively working to
promote all of the upcoming events and it is imperative that everyone gets
involved in the process.
on Saturday, October 23rd in Fort Myers at 10:00 AM on the corner of
Gladiolus and U.S. 41, there will be the final Fort Myers Tea Party of the
year. It will be just before the election, so mark your calendar.
If you are not back in town to attend the one one October 2nd, please
participate in this one.
is it folks.........it's what we've been working so hard for over the
past months.......to bring back the American Dream and the Founder's vision
of individual freedom that comes with personal responsibility.
get involved like never before and make this one last final push as
we “Remember In November.”
Naples Tea Party Update Of Events
To all Naples Tea Party
Patriots..........Just a few things to share with you. Attached
is the radio spot that we put together to promote the October 2nd Tea Party.
Hope you like it. It will run for one-week before the event on WAVV.....FM
101.1. The teams we put together to hand out flyers are doing a great
job.....in fact too good. We did get a couple of complaints from
shopping centers regarding flyers placed on windshields in their parking
lots. So, please get permission before placing them on any windshields.
The 9-12 Group wanted me to
pass this on regarding the Judge Napolitano Event next Monday night.
Those who purchased the
SWFL 912 $100 Packages that include 2 floor seats and 2 event t-shirts can
pick their tickets up at Germain Arena on event day. There will be a special
"will call" table set up for those who purchased the SWFL 912
Packages. Do not go to Germain's "will call", instead enter the
arena through the entrance at the recreation lobby. A special table will be
set up inside the recreation lobby. You will be able to pick up your tickets
and be given a coupon to use to collect your t-shirts at the merchandise
counter. Also, Germain will charge $5 for parking. Keep up the good
work promoting the event. Call Cheryl if you have any questions at
There will be much to do in
setting up everything for the Tea Party. Again, we are asking for some
volunteers to help with the process and ask that you get to our staging area
early.......around 10:00 if possible. In the past, some of you
have filmed our events and were able to place them on YouTube.
Please........we ask that you do the same for the October 2nd rally.
Many are still out of town and would love to share in the experience.
Don't forget to cast your
vote in the straw poll. We'll have a booth set up with several
volunteers to record your vote and the results will be published a few days
before the election. The more people we get to vote, the more it will
help to validate the Naples Tea Party favorites.
Our good friends at Alison
Craig Furniture have donated a portion of their parking lot for us to set up
the sound system. This will be a big help, so we are asking any of you
who might be in the market for some furniture or accessories to please stop
by Allison Craig. Tell them you are members of the Tea Party and they
will go out of their way to give you special attention and the very best
The Collier County Sheriff
Department has briefed us and they will be setting up a command post with
several law enforcement officers. We have never had an incident at any
of our Tea Parties, but to reiterate, do not engage any rowdy or unruly Tea
Party infiltrators if they happen to show up. Let the law enforcement
officers handle any altercation. For our safety, we were reminded
to stay off U.S. 41 at all times. Do not impede traffic, stand on the
median, or attempt to cross the street with moving traffic.
Like always, all Tea Party
signs are to focus on issues. We've been at this for almost
two-years, so I don't need to remind you what the issues are. How
about getting rid of the ruling political establishment and give we the
people our government back? Think of the Three R's we learned in
school....but in our case they should be REDUCE........REPEAL.........and
RESTORE. The press will be there and will film and take pictures
of our signs and conduct. Let's not give them any ammunition that
makes us look bad.
Again, make sure you park
in appropriate places. Being Saturday, all the banks will be closed
close to the event, so their parking lots are available. The Masonic
Lodge, which is located right in front of our staging area, has a large lot
and will charge $10 for parking. This is a great deal because of the
proximity and it helps them out financially. Of course the grass strip
heading north of Pine Ridge Road will be a popular spot to park.
Please pull in bumper first (don't parallel park) so that more cars can be
accommodated. Spread out going north when you line U.S. 41.
If we reach Vanderbilt Road to the
north..........wow.........what a sight that would be.
We have a tremendous lineup
of speakers, including several major political candidates.
Unfortunately, we just got word that Marco Rubio will not be able to attend due to the death of his father and having to
reschedule his appearances. However, Marco will be in town on Saturday
the 25th if you would like to see and hear him. See below.
Continue to spread the word
and get ready to rock on Monday night with the Judge at Germain Arena and on
Saturday, October the 2nd. God bless America,

Last October 2nd Tea Party Update
Friday, October 01, 2010
Hello Naples Tea Party
Patriots.........We are ready for tomorrow. The final details were put
into place this morning. I want to thank each and everyone of you for
all the hard work you have put into making this event a success.
First, and foremost, have fun tomorrow. For those of you who have
never experienced a Tea Party, embrace the energy and uplifting of
your spirit. Realize you are not alone and with God's grace, we
will put America back on the right path towards individual freedom with less
government control over our lives.
Some of you might have
driven by the site recently and noticed the barriers along U.S. 41.
We have worked closely with the Collier County Sheriff's Office and for
safety reasons only, it was decided to put the barriers up to keep
people off of U.S. 41. They also have a command center with a tower to
keep an eye on things. Please, do not cross over the barriers.
If you must, use the crosswalks to get across the street.
As always, Tea Party
Patriots will conduct themselves with the highest regard towards safety and
will be respectful of others. If, in the slight chance, A Tea Party
Infiltrator shows up with an offensive racist sign, don't take matters into
your own hands. Again, we will have "Tea Party Infiltrator"
signs available at the main sound stage in front of Alison/Craig Furniture
Store. Pick one up and follow that person around. They will soon
leave. However, don't forget freedom of speech applies to everyone, including big
government supporters. If they want to stand with us, it's their
right to do so. We are only talking about Tea Party imposters out to
make us look bad through the eyes of the media.
It looks like the weather
will be beautiful and the "surprise" I promise will start at 1:00.
All of the local groups
that support the Naples Tea Party will attend and are really pumped up.
Visit with them and find out what their mission statement is so that you can
remained engaged other than just attending a Tea Party. I am so proud
to be working with all the groups and the tremendous efforts they put forth.
When the groups put up their "booths," be sure they are
approximately four feet from the frontage road (Trail Blvd.)
We must keep the frontage road clear at all times so vehicles can get
If some of you could bring
a trash bag, it would be greatly appreciated. We have always left the
grounds cleaner than we have found it, so we are asking everyone to pitch in
and police the area.
I still could use four or
five more people to arrive early to help out with the staging and organize
the parking. I have now decided to be there at 8:30, so if you can
arrive between 8:30 and 9:00, that would be great. We will have
reserved parking for those who show up early.
OK..........we'll see you
tomorrow. Please carpool if you can and continue to spread the word.

Naples Tea Party Update
To all Naples Tea Party Patriots.........I want to thank all of you
who worked so hard in making our event a success yesterday. While the attendance did not meet with our expectations,
those who did attend enjoyed the experience and were grateful in getting a chance to see
and hear many candidates running for office.
All of our speakers were terrific and we thank you.
Frankly, the barricades might have played a role in people deciding not to come and most of our seasonal Naples Tea Partiers were not in
town. Anyway, we closed out the year with
our message "Remember In November" (Yes, the plane providing the flyover did make it) and we can go into the
election knowing the Tea Party movement will have an effect on the
outcome. Please remain active and help out all you can in the “get out to vote" campaigns and supporting the Tea Party candidates.
I've received many e-mails with pictures and really appreciate all of them.
Here is just one:
"Great job today to everyone involved. It was so informative and great fun and all in all a very typical, feel good event. But most of all,
getting to meet and hear the candidates was terrific.
Cannot thank you, and all who had a hand in this, enough. The signs were great,
the spirit was inspiring.
How DID you get the President and First Lady to come ??? Go conservatives o
Nov. 2 !!"
Marilyn and Butch
I'll end with a quote from our good friends at Save America. "Make no mistake. What we are witnessing with the Tea Party movement is the
antithesis of elite-driven greedy self-serving
government debt creation, multiculturalism and soulless globalism."
You can read the entire piece at:
Keep the Tea Party spirit alive and continue the hard work.

Naples Tea Party Update
is easy to understand in America; it means looking out for yourself by
looking out for your country."
Tea Patriots........We are now down to the last few days until the
November 2nd election, and the Naples Tea Party is asking for your
help. Over the past two years, the Tea Party movement has launched a
massive national effort to elect the best Constitutional Conservatives to
defeat the worst tax-spend-socialist progressives. We have a
chance to make history with this election. But now we're down to the
every day between now and election day, we urge everyone to do their part in
the "Get Out To Vote" drive. You are the heart and soul of
the Tea Party Movement and deserve a big THANK YOU for promoting the
causes of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and
free markets. Candidates are looking for super-volunteers who
will work at their campaign headquarters. Poll
watchers are also needed in helping turnout every single Tea Party friendly
voter and bringing sunlight and accountability into the polling place on
