Dear Washington, We want our America back!

Washington’s motto is, “If it moves, tax it!” Government takes our wages by extortion, and we have no say in how the money is spent.

But we must admit it; we the people bear some of the blame. We have not held our elected officials accountable. We have just re-elected them time and again, bad vote after bad vote. We must remember that we can vote them out, and we need to let them know we are not going to give them another chance. It is time for us to take back America!

We have had enough! We are telling the government, you cannot come back and take more and more money from us. You cannot make our grandchildren pay for this. We have had enough!

This is not about the Republicans or Democrats. It is not politics; it is common sense.

We are not alone. Millions more across America are as frustrated as we are and want to see accountability and a return to fiscal responsibility by our elected leaders.

At least 67% of Americans were against the bailout bill, yet our Senators voted for it anyway. We could hardly believe the 1,000-page spending bill that came to be called Porkulus was actually voted for by a Senate who did not read it before it was hurriedly rushed to a vote. And we were furious! Folks in a few areas held protest rallies, serving roasted pigs, pork barbecue and a bellyful of complaints against government spending.

The protest movement began when a handful of online friends started talking about how we could show Washington we are not content with the way they are spending our tax dollars. Some 50 spontaneous tea parties were held across the country in February and more and more people began chatting online, blogging and Twittering, and talking offline. From that initial internet gathering, the Tea Party Movement has grown to the Tax Day Tea Parties on April 15th.

Although there are national organizations talking about these Tea Parties, and websites promoting them, the actual organization and planning is taking place in local communities–in over 1500 cities so far–in about 40 cities across Texas and in every other state in the U.S. In some of the larger cities like Houston, crowds are expected to top 5,000.

Whether through mass demonstration or smaller gatherings at local post offices, Wednesday, April 15 (Tax Day) is the significant date for the protests.

We are demonstrating our outrage against the arrogant, elitist, completely unrepresentative government that refuses to accept the will of the people as guidance for our own governance.

This is not a one-time gathering, it is just the beginning, and we will not quit until our Republic is restored. We want our America back!

Join me on Wednesday, April 15. Let’s Tea Party! I’ll be on the Courthouse Square in Denton, Texas, at 6 PM. Bring your homemade signs, flags, fifes and drums. Bring YOUR AMERICAN SPIRIT!

Here in my part of the world, we have a message for Washington: Don’t Mess with Texas!
