What an amazing 3 days with the WV Against Common Core(WVACC) crew & Dr. Sandra Stotsky! We had great turnout on Sunday in Bridgeport, WV. FreedomWorks joined West Virginians Against Common Core to host a town hall forum on Common Core.
After a long weekend of learning how to be a better activist and learning how to continue grassroots movements in their perspective states, patriots from different states in the nation were so passionate about the cause that on Monday afternoon once the training sessions were formally over they took to Capitol Hill to lobby. The activists were led through the senate buildings by some staffers and interns from FreedomWorks and given information and talking points about the Utility MACT and S.J. Res. 37.
West Virginia is facing two threats from big government at the state and federal levels: new greenhouse gas regulations from the EPA and a new cigarette tax hike from Charleston. Both are bad fiscal policy. Both would raise costs and harm businesses. Both need to be stopped.
Join the WV Metro Valley Patriots Tea Party on Monday, July 19 for a demonstration against cap and trade in front of the Charleston WV Unemployment Office at noon.
This demonstration will drive home the message that cap and tax is a jobs killer for West Virginia and comes in advance of an expected Senate energy bill vote in the next weeks.
Please make plans to join us on Saturday, July 10th in Cross Lanes, West Virginia for a day long Liberty Summit workshop. The WV Metro Valley Patriots TEA Party is hosting this event and we hope that you and your friends will be able to join us.
