The formation of a Tea Party in Mecklenburg County has become a reality under the direction of a Chase City man who describes himself as being neither a Republican nor a Democrat but someone who seeks to hear the truth and see people who will stand up for the area elected into office.
Why bother blogging about yet another Tea Party in tiny Mecklenburg? Because it shows that the movement is spreading in the 5th District. Lynchburg, Charlottesville, Danville, and beyond. Mecklenburg County is home to one of the more totalitarian Republican Parties in the 5th District with a Chairman who stifles free speech worse than Stalin or Perriello.
But Mecklenburg deserves special attention because it is one of only a few counties in the 5th District where Virgil Goode received more votes than John McCain. Mecklenburg is the type of county where conservatives are more inspired by speaking your mind than running to the middle. It's the type of county that will turn out strong for a conservative candidate, both in the upcoming Republican primary and the general election.
