Will Teaparties Become a Trend for Fed-up Taxpayers?

“Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it, have never known it again.”                               [Ronald Reagan]

Reagan warned us that one of these days we could spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it once was like in America when men were free.  He said it would happen if we failed to believe in our capacity for self government and concede that a little band of intellectual elite in a far-distant capitol can plan our lives  better than we can plan them ourselves.

The greatest Revolution in the history of the world took place in our country. The Founding Fathers for the first time established the idea that we had within ourselves the God-given right to determine our own destiny.Yet here we are, barely two hundred years later, a short step away from having the government dictate every aspect of our lives. Freedom has never been so close to slipping away as it is at this moment in time.

How do we plan to explain that it happened on our watch to our grandchildren? I cannot face that prospect.

So I’m starting with a Tea Party on Tax Day. A few hundred of my friends will gather on the Courthouse steps to remind our  government that we can plan our own lives and take full responsibility for our Liberty.

I heard there was quite a Tea Party in Orlando when about 4200 fed-up taxpayers showed up. Listen to Lloyd Marcus’ “Tea Party Anthem”  on this great video to get you in the mood.

American Tea Party by Lloyd Marcus, © 2009 ZEPHYRUS MUSIC, BMI

Mr President!
Your stimulus is sure to bust
Its just a socialistic scheme
The only thing it will do
Is kill the American Dream

You wanna take from achievers
Somehow you think that’s fair.
And redistribute to those folks
Who won’t get out of their easy chair.

We’re havin’ a tea party across this land
If you love this country
Come on and join our band
We’re standin’ up for freedom and liberty
Cause patriots have shown us freedom ain’t free

So when they call you a racist cause you disagree
It just another of their dirty tricks to silence you and me.
I believe in the Constitution and all it stands for.
Anyone who tramples it should be booted out the door.

We’re havin’ a tea party across this land
If you love this country
Come on and join our band
We’re standin’ up for freedom and liberty
Cause patriots have shown us freedom ain’t free

Now we’re not advocating violence
That’s what the so-called peace crowd do
We’re talkin’ peaceful protest to defend the red, white and blue

We gotta vote out these clowns who don’t love the USA
Who stay up late loosing sleep fearing what the French might say

We’re havin’ a tea party across this land
If you love this country
Come on and join our band
We’re standin’ up for freedom and liberty
Cause patriots have shown us freedom ain’t free

We’re havin’ a tea party across this land
If you love this country
Come on and join our band
We’re standin’ up for freedom and liberty
Cause patriots have shown us freedom ain’t free

Freedom ain’t free
(Stand up for America)
Freedom ain’t free
(Gotta take a stand)
Freedom ain’t free
(Mr Obama)
Freedom ain’t free
(we work hard for our money)
Freedom ain’t free
(Don’t give it away)
Freedom ain’t free
(Save the day)
Freedom ain’t free
(Don’t go givin’ it away)
Freedom ain’t free
(It ain’t gonna work)
Freedom ain’t free
(Give back our freedom)
Freedom ain’t free
(Give back our liberty)
Freedom ain’t free
(I love my country)
(fade out)
