Beautiful day in Lansing.
About 250 people from all over the State attended.
This rally was more overtly partisan than in the past. Speakers running for office have spoken before, but only on the principles of limited government. This time there was electioneering starting with the prayer. Unfortunately.
Opsommer, Schuette, Young, Kelly, Johnson and some local candidates gave stump speeches with a nod toward the 10th Amendment. They all deserve your vote. Still…
I suppose this near an election and with the issues solidified, partisan politicking may be expected – and these were all Michigan or Ingham County candidates. However, the tea party must remember its non-partisan origins.
The pressure has to be kept up on all the statists: Nancy Pelosi, Lindsey Graham, Virg Bernero, Jocelyn Benson and fellow travellers like Joe Schwarz.
We also need to send Rick Snyder a message. On which more later.
