“You don’t magically become a Tea Partier – it’s a journey,” says Mary Kass, president of The Greater New Orleans Tea Party. The grassroots activist and mother of three is this week’s Heritage Foundation Featured Facebook Fan [1], and she speaks from experience.

When Mary Kass originally told her father that she planned to join the Tea Party, the retired World War II veteran worried that an all-out media assault aimed at smearing the movement could lead to his daughter being harmed.

“I told him ‘Dad, you had your fight on Iwo Jima. This is a much different kind of fight, but it’s my fight,’” Kass said.When you read about this week’s Featured Fan on Facebook [1], you’ll learn that joining the Tea Party isn’t just a battle for truth, but a life-changing experience centered on love for country.  Are you a supporter of the Tea Party movement? Tell us about it on our Facebook page [2].
