Tania Gorman Bio

Tania is the BLEXIT Florida Chapter State Director, the Fifth Chapter in the BLEXIT Foundation, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. A former clinician that worked for a non-profit which provided assistance to a low-income community for those who were in need of substance abuse and mental health treatment. Tania worked with women, men and veterans to help them obtain employment, housing and other resources within the community. 

She matriculated from a counselor to Program Manager and received her Certified Addiction Professional Certification (CAP), shortly after her promotion. Despite having such a rewarding career of providing help to those in need, her beloved profession would become a catalyst to her spiritual transformation and a roadmap to her conservative home. 

Subsequently, as the political landscape changed in 2015, the policies started to as well, the field that she had cared so much about had become very bureaucratic and less client focused. It was time for a change and new a direction! 

In December 2015, Tania received her master's from the University of South Florida in Urban & Regional Planning. She currently works as a Principal Transportation Planner, planning and programming roadways locally to improve transportation planning within the State of Florida.  

Currently, she spends her time with the BLEXIT Executive Team planning, hosting, and attending events across the state promulgating the BLEXIT message. The events promote educational initiatives, criminal justice reform, positive American History and highlights the importance of free markets and entrepreneurship as the antidote to poverty. 

Additionally, if Tania is called to be of service to share her experience, strength and hope about the message of faith, freedom, and country she is willing to serve with no hesitation.   

Tania believes we are in critical times; thus, conservatives must reach out to educate and engage our minority and low-income communities on their Civic Duties before it's too late! Returning to our founding principles of God, family and duty/love of our country is the best way to save America and gain spiritual fulfillment.

Beware of Calls for a Constitutional Convention



Our founders had the foresight to build a number of safeguards into our Constitution in order to redress wrongs committed by the government.  However, there is a fear that the primary remedy - a Constitutional Convention - is rife with risk and can be easily co-opted by sinister interests.  The John Birch society reviews the history of the Convention and layouts out a precise action plan for Patriots.  To read this critical article, click here:

Know Your Political Parties.


Do you know what constitutes a Political Party in Florida?


I was asked a few days ago, while at the Manatee County Supervisor of Elections (of all places), how the T.E.A. Party was doing? (Remember TEA Party officially was the acronym for Taxed Enough Already Party). I said we are doing well but that last year we had changed our name to Manatee Patriots. Acting surprised, the employee I was talking to said "What will that do to your political party status and how do you differ from Republicans?". I was shocked, but I guess I shouldn't have been.

I politely informed this person who has attended our meetings that Manatee Patriots/Tea Party Manatee was not a Political Party at all but was an organization of generally right leaning Patriotic Americans and that some were members of the Republican Party but that we were open to all members of political parties and generally considered ourselves as Non-Partisan. Another employee at the SOE opened up a file she had and handed us each a listing of "officially recognized political parties in the State of Florida" as of 9/3/2021.

Here is the List:




DEM     Florida Democratic Party

REP     Republican Party of Florida

NPA      No Party Affiliation


CPF     Constitution Party of Florida

ECO     Ecology Party of Florida

GRE     Green Party of Florida

IND       Independent Party of Florida     

LPF       Libertarian Party of Florida

PSL       Party for Socialism & Liberation - Florida

PEO      People's Party

REF       Reform Party of Florida

UPF       Unity Party of Florida




So, The designation "No Party Affiliation (NPA)" is an official Political Party, and 

there are Officially 12 designated official political parties recognized in Florida. 


Now you know.
