On February 13, 2009 both Houses of Congress passed the Porkulus bill stuffed with over 8000 pork projects and nearly a trillion dollars of deficit spending for economic “stimulus”. This was on the heels of another trillion dollar bailout package passed late last year. And despite this out-of-control spending, Obama continues to claim that there will be middle tax cuts. He has not fooled most of the people (well, not since the election anyway).
Today, the people speak. They were not organized by FOX NEWS, Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity, but by real people. They received no funding from the likes of George Soros; just grassroots moms, pops and other hard working people. They speak not to the MSM (who will of course play down the event since they didn’t hear about it first via a MoveOn.org broadcast message on their Blackberries) but to their duly elected representatives who seem to have gone tone deaf to their constituents murmur of discontent.
Here’s a man who has summed it up quite succinctly (from Temple of Mut.) Pay attention to our tea party, or you’re toast. Got it?
Remember: every additional $ in taxes is one less $ of freedom for you, and one additional $ of power for government.
