“I got involved in the Tea Party by being thrown off the boat. Although I shared many of the views of those in the movement, I was afraid to jump in the water. Finally, I was pushed, not only by this President’s abuse of constitutional powers, but by local authorities who tried to stop my constitutional right to speak.”
