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)

Take the #TCOT Challenge

Posted on February 8, 2009. Filed under: Economy, Limited Government, Republican Party, Senate, TCOT, Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , |

Senators quaked when OOO-oval office occupant threatened that failure to act and act now would turn crisis into catastrophe. All of us could see real concern on his face.

#TCOT took him at his word. Catastrophe was imminent and we had to stop it! Phones melted at the Capitol and District offices all over the country. When phones were unanswered or busy, and mailboxes were full, we turned to fax machines. When those shut down, someone provided the private emails for senate offices.

Well, now it’s up to three Republican Turncoats, I mean Senators (Maine’s Collins and Snowe and Pennsylvania’s Specter.) Ever heard that old saying, the Devil’s in the details? Well, as of mid-afternoon today, the latest version of the “stimulus” is $805B and includes facts which may obscure the real pork. (NumbersUSA says it provides jobs for illegal aliens.)

Senator Collins was standing way too close to the Dem chow line when she said that Porkulus “will really help create jobs and turn our economy around.” Wonder if the folks from Maine believed her?

I doubt it. My hubby’s from Maine and pretty savvy and very thrifty. Talk about tight purse strings – this guy scours parking lots for pennies or dimes folks may have dropped! (Hey, they add up.)

Well, back to task: Don’t say we didn’t warn you, Senator Collins. Your own constituents in Maine, at this very moment, are taking The #TCOT Challenge. But don’t fret – we’ll let you know what they tell us (and probably the media too.)

The #TCOT Plan to cut all income taxes in half for all of 2009 will create jobs and turn the economy around. What would your family do with the $$?  Think about it. I think almost everyone will say they know Porkulus won’t create jobs or help them pay off debts.

Senator, I urge you, while you still have loyal supporters in Maine, promise to VOTE NO on PORKULUS Monday.

Disclaimer: #TCOT Challenge is not limited to folks in Maine or Pennsylvania; anyone can take it. But if you have family or friends in those states, ask them what they’d do with the $$.
