Tea Party Today!




CNBC’s Rick Santelli (backed by mortgage traders), called out last week for a “Nationwide Chicago Tea Party” to protest the Obama Administration’s Pork laden Stimulus Plan.

The Boston Tea Party was an act of direct protest by American Colonists demanding representation in the British Government.

They became known as the original patriots.

As the bailouts spiral out of control, we are forced to fund failed banks.
With foreclosures on the rise, we are made the collateral of out-of-control spending.
And, when the bills come due, the IRS knocks on the door of self-responsibility.

$750 Billion for TARP
$747 Billion for Bailouts
$440 Billion Omnibus Bill (just passed in the House)
$3 Trillion Budget!
$685 Billion for Universal Health Care

Cap and Trade legislation that will bankrupt companies and raise energy prices.

ENOUGH!

Enough with the pork!
We bring home the bacon and we want to keep it!!

We declare Our Independence from Big Government Bailouts and irresponsible government.
Now we will begin rallying people to action!

- We need sound money, and our families need to be able to keep more of their wealth.

- We need government to stop raiding our paychecks so we can pay off our debts and accumulate wealth so we don’t have to be dependent on government.

- More money in individual's pockets should be put there by the individual - not by government.

- When businesses fail as a result of mismanagement, we need the free market to deal with that; not government.- No more Robin Hood economics! Taking money from "the rich" to give to "the poor" is not government's function or right.




Dissent is the highest form of Patriotism – Thomas Paine


“To preserve our independence, we must not let our politicians load us with perpetual debt. We must make our choice between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude. If we can prevent the government from wasting the labours of the people under the pretense of caring for them, the people will be much happier.” - Thomas Jefferson


"The same prudence which in private life would forbid our paying our own money for unexplained projects, forbids it in the dispensation of the public moneys." - Thomas Jefferson


"To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it." - Thomas Jefferson
