Where we are…..
A group of concerned citizens met in April 2009, for the first Tax Day TEA party in Salisbury, Maryland. Many more of us reunited with old friends. We reconnected and reaffirmed our belief in protecting the constitution and our liberties as US citizens. Concern for the pending finical ruin was the main focal point for most participants.
It was that day I met people like Joe Collins, who has become a dear friend and co-chair of Americans for Prosperity here. We started out with the first multi-county group which has since grown and morphed in to individual county chapters all across Maryland. I am proud of that. We took on nationalized health care. We took on City Hall. Some of our friends in the group even ran for office and won. It’s been a hell of a year. I’ve met some amazing people and have formed some great friendships, as the group together tried to figure out the best way to educate ourselves and become citizen lobbyists. We have all been volunteers because we deeply care about our country and knew intuitively that we could no longer rely on others to mind the store or make the decisions, that if we did not get involved we had no one to blame but ourselves. Not perfect. Not professionals, just regular folks out there with skin in the game.
It truly has not been easy and I understand why people don’t get into politics, as it’s not a pretty business. Many who speak out are bound to be marginalized with attempts to be intimidated for lascivious reasons. I’ve been stunned with the motives that are behind many people’s behavior.
I’ve really never been a kitchen kind of gal. So, I don’t think I’ll start now with the sitting down and shutting up and making anyone a sandwich routine.
I say this because apparently there is a lot of speculation if I’m going to run for some office or another and while I am flattered with all the attention, the truth is I have not made any decision to go from private citizen volunteer to candidate for public office. Yet what has been made very clear to me recently is how the politics of personal destruction works, or at least attempts to.
So that being said, I want to let you know that not only do I use the blog venue but I use normal social network sites to convey our message of citizen activists for free markets, lower taxes, fiscal responsibility, and support of upholding the constitution.
Please join me on Face Book and Twitter under “Julie Brewington” I welcome everyone. And that means everyone even the Face Book stalker police. Have at it.

Salisbury, Maryland and Wicomico County are looking at a very rough and personal election year coming up. Will some local blogs stay alive or destroy themselves as their bias comes out as they try and destroy others? Either way, this election year is extremely important. Stand behind those running for office that you agree with, for they will need support. It is always easier to sit back and attack rather than put you own butt on the line and do what is right, and what is needed. Who will stand up this year; who will fight for the people no matter the cost to themselves? We shall see, and soon.
