To our fellow Americans:
Tea Party Patriots Action is committed to doing what we can to help our country as we navigate through this crisis, and get through it we shall because we are Americans. We are the most charitable, entrepreneurial, and resilient people in the world, and we can win this battle without panicking.
This resource page contains basic COVID-19 information collated in one place, a template letter you can customize and use to communicate with your neighbors to start the conversation of how you can work together, a list of ten actions you can take while stuck at home, and more.
Our hope is that this page will serve as a resource that helps you, your family, and your community thrive during this emergency. We also want to make it clear that we do not believe that panic is warranted or necessary, contrary to what the mainstream media seems to be trying to promote.
Additionally, we are wary of the opportunists who seek to exploit this crisis to push their anti-American and anti-freedom agendas, and feel strongly that the more we can do for ourselves and our communities, the less of a foothold a would-be tyrant can gain.
We can do this together and we can do it without making things worse. Let’s show the world that Americans can take care of ourselves and each other because that is our nature and our heritage. Remember, this too shall pass and we will get through it.
