The Pen is mightier than the Sword

Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak. If your enemy is secure at all points, be pre­pared for him. If he is in supe­rior strength, evade him. If your oppo­nent is tem­pera­men­tal, seek to irri­tate him.

- Sun Tzu The Art of War

The Worces­ter Tea Party is con­sti­tuted as a non-​profit edu­ca­tional orga­ni­za­tion; our struc­ture is mod­eled on the col­le­giate sys­tem. This is not to say that we spend our time drink­ing Sam Adams Boston Lager and argu­ing with each other in the Fac­ulty Lounge. Our call­ing requires we reach out to peo­ple and help them under­stand why our Repub­lic is great and why social­ism isn’t great. The for­mer is eas­ier than the lat­ter, but both present challenges.

A tac­tic that has been of some effect has been writ­ing let­ters to the edi­tor of you local news­pa­per. A short and civil let­ter that gets pub­lish enhances the rep­u­ta­tion of the per­son writ­ing it and the orga­ni­za­tion they rep­re­sent. A good let­ter is well under the word limit and focuses on one sin­gle issue or topic. The best let­ters include a call to action. I would encour­age that you do not attack a per­son as such neg­a­tiv­ity turns off peo­ple in the per­suad­able mid­dle. It is those peo­ple that we need to appeal to most. You should remem­ber that few peo­ple want to be involved in pol­i­tics and fewer wish to spend their time with polit­i­cal fanatics.

The Worces­ter Tea Party can sup­port your effort by proof read­ing a draft of your let­ter. Just e-​mail them to [email protected]​worcesterteaparty.​com and our expe­ri­enced let­ter writes will reply with sug­ges­tions on improv­ing your sub­mis­sion. If you have mas­tered the let­ter writ­ing craft we will invite you to join our let­ter writ­ing team. Any of us can write a let­ter and together we can write the let­ters that will save our Repub­lic. Thank you for all that you do in the cause of Liberty.

Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak. If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him.

The Worcester Tea Party is constituted as a non-profit educational organization; our structure is modeled on the collegiate system. This is not to say that we spend our time drinking Sam Adams Boston Lager and arguing with each other in the Faculty Lounge. Our calling requires we reach out to people and help them understand why our Republic is great and why socialism isn’t great. The former is easier than the latter, but both present challenges.

A tactic that has been of some effect has been writing letters to the editor of you local newspaper. A short and civil letter that gets publish enhances the reputation of the person writing it and the organization they represent. A good letter is well under the word limit and focuses on one single issue or topic. The best letters include a call to action. I would encourage that you do not attack a person as such negativity turns off people in the persuadable middle. It is those people that we need to appeal to most. You should remember that few people want to be involved in politics and fewer wish to spend their time with political fanatics.

The Worcester Tea Party can support your effort by proof reading a draft of your letter. Just e-mail them to [email protected] and our experienced letter writes will reply with suggestions on improving your submission. If you have mastered the letter writing craft we will invite you to join our letter writing team. Any of us can write a letter and together we can write the letters that will save our Republic. Thank you for all that you do in the cause of Liberty.
