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." 

This coming 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.

Good news update on Monday Sept. 27.......An Evening with Judge Napolitano "Constitutional Chaos"  

Naples Tea Party Update
Tuesday, September 07, 2010

Hello Tea Party Patriots.........The countdown continues.  More than ever we need your help if we are to make a difference in the November election.

It 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.

The 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.

The 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.

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,'

Many are 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.

To 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:


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 Fort Myers,  RESTORE AMERICA RALLY will be held on Saturday, October 23rd at 10:00 on the corner of Gladiolus and U.S. 41.  


  As 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, we'll all keep up the good fight.

Naples Tea 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 News Radio.

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 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: 

The timing of this event is no accident, as it follows Constitution Day on September 17 and Freedom Week, September 20-24, 2010. 

It precedes 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.  

Also, 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. 

Finally, 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.

This is it's what we've been working so hard for over the past bring back the American Dream and the Founder's vision of individual freedom that comes with personal responsibility.

Please, 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 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 285-9697

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 deal possible.

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 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 through.

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.  God bless,

Barry Willoughby

 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.

God bless,

Naples Tea Party Update

"Patriotism is easy to understand in America; it means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country."

  Calvin Coolidge

Hello 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 wire.

For 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 Election Day.

For further information on where you can volunteer, contact the following individuals.

Collier County.....Daniel Cook at 272-5164, Frank Schwerin at 732-0885 or 248-0731, Mike Brennan at 304-6453, Daniel Riley at 571-0616.

Lee County......Mike Davis at 707-2041, Jim Dooley at 938-6718, Carol and Larry DeVore at 464-3288.


We encourage everyone to come out and support the Lee 912 RESTORE AMERICA RALLY! The organizers and members of Lee 912 have been fantastic about supporting the Naples Tea Party events...this is a great opportunity for Collier, Lee & Charlotte County members to help GOTV and let Southwest Florida citizens know we are vigilant in our desire to RESTORE AMERICA!

Below is the link with information about the rally. Hope to see you there!
