Tea Party Afterthoughts

Posted on April 21, 2009. Filed under: Congress, Economy, Freedom, Liberty, Tea Party |

Ready to give up? Didn’t think so. Neither am I! We’ll Tea Party on until there is real change; meanwhile, we’re educating our neighbors and fortifying our ranks until the next time.

Almost daily another atrocity is heaped on the mounting hill of attempts to scrap our Freedom, burying us deeper in debt. As long as there are Patriots among us, though, we’ll not give up.

When I received this in an email, I had an immediate mental flash:  a deep hole with a bucket sitting in the bottom; in walks Mr. Tax-and-Fix-It.

Sir Winston Churchill said, many years ago.

I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.” — Winston Churchill

(I guess our current Oval Office Occupier didn’t study Churchillian history! I don’t suppose he’s done much digging either … some shoveling, maybe, because the mess he’s making is getting pretty deep!)

Had Enough Yet?

My good friend, Sandie Crosnoe, shares little gems for conservative activists. Her “Had Enough Yet?” was just posted and I’m sharing it with you here:

“Are you concerned about the government creating money out of thin air? Worried what it will do to our economy and your savings? Concerned that it means higher taxes and a lower standard of living for our children and grandchildren?

We continue to pay our taxes, making do with less. Yet the politicians in Washington DC continue to spend our money like there is no tomorrow. Why should we let someone else control our money without holding them accountable?

The talking heads keep giving us the same explanation, yet something does not quite make sense. The real questions are never answered or even asked. Questions like: Who earns interest on a Federal Reserve Note? Does Congress audit the Fed? Should our taxes be given to a privately held corporation? Should an insolvent corporation be bailed out with our tax money?

Things are not okay in Washington. The ruling class is out of touch with us, their constituents. We need real change and we need it now. We need to stop filling the banksters’ coffers.

The income tax was only created to pay the interest to the banksters for money they lent to our government. We can wait forever for the media to start telling the truth, but by going to http://www.mises.org you can have the answers now. Read more about the Fed in The Creature From Jekyll Island.

Tell your Congressman and Senator to support the “Audit The Federal Reserve Board Act.”‘
