We (Eowyn, Steve, Joan) began Fellowship of the Minds less than a year ago, on the eve of Christmas Eve 2009. We did so out of Patriotism — a sense of urgency about the sorry state of America’s politics, economy, society and culture, and a foreboding concern about the path of certain ruin our country is taking.
In that, we are not alone but are a small part of a spontaneous political movement of Americans who are taking back our beloved country from those who have been working assiduously for decades to “transform” her into something completely alien to the intent and design of the Founding Fathers.
Whether or not we win the elections that are now only days away, the TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party Movement (TPM) will continue. Whatever survey data there are on the TPM suggest that, unlike most political movements that are mainly of the young, the TPM includes substantial numbers of older and retired Americans — moms and dads, grandmas and granddads. This is confirmed by what I know from the personal contacts I have with some of this blog’s regular Fellows. But I have no inkling about the other Fellowship readers who number in the hundreds and thousands.
So Fellowship of the Minds is conducting its own little survey in the form of 7 mini-polls below. Please be assured that:
- Your identity will be completely anonymous, known only to you.
- The information from the poll results will not be used for any commercial purpose. As you can see with your own eyes, this blog is non-commercial: There are no ads, no commercials, no hawking of merchandise. We, the founders, derive not a penny from our labors. And our Fellowship will continue to be ad-free.
