PURPOSE:

To upset you!  To anger you!

To show you enough of the abuses of liberalism that you will get involved.

To encourage you to contact your elected representatives and object.

NOTHING WILL CHANGE UNTIL YOU DO!!!

"When public virtue is gone, when the national spirit is fled, when a party is substituted for the nation and faction for a party, when venality lurks and skulks in secret, and much more, when it impudently braves the public censure, whether it be sent in the form of emissaries from foreign powers, or is employed by ambitious and intriguing domestic citizens, the republic is lost is essence, though it may still exist in form." --  John Adams (1735-1826); to Benjamin Rush, 1808

(Another voice from the past that, sadly, seems to hit a bullseye with the things we see today)

The people must also be self-assertive. They must have the spirit of the old Revolutionary War flag: "Don't tread on me!" They must be vigilant against those, at home or abroad, in or out of government, who might wish to trample on their rights. They must be courageous and manly, with a sense of honor, so that in hard times they will stand up and fight, and not slink away slavishly so as to avoid trouble and danger.

COMMENTARY:  After refusing RNC Chairman Michael Steel's request to be allowed to speak at one of the Chicago TEA Parties one of the organizers said, "This is an opportunity for everyday citizens to speak and for elected officials to listen, we've been listening to them for years. On April 15, we are taking this opportunity to speak to them. It's not an opportunity for them to speak to us."  This is as it should be if future tea parties are to retain their "grass roots" integrity.  No officials from any political party should be allowed to participate.

More TEA parties planned for the 4th of July.  Are you helping to plan one for your area?  Are you going to attend?  The reaction of the liberals and the media indicate the recent tea parties had an effect on the political level, but they need to be larger so the politicians can no longer ignore the movement.  You can help.  Will you?  Even tea parties in the smallest towns will help and might even be the most import if there are enough of them:

The John Galt speech:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNiJc7yxKHg


“Every man builds his world in his own image. He has the power to choose, but no power to escape the necessity of choice. If he abdicates his power, he abdicates the status of man, and the grinding chaos of the irrational is what he achieves as his sphere of existence ­ by his own choice.” - Ayn Rand


So, what's the big deal???  The liberal's answer to any problem is always "more money," even if experience has shown it made no difference in the past:  http://politics.theatlantic.com/2009/04/does_us_education_cost_as_much_as_our_health_care.php

Are you unhappy with the way many things are going in the USA?  If you are then let your elected representatives hear from you.  Our nation is a "representative republic."  In other words a nation where our legislators are supposed to represent your wishes, but, if you don't let them hear from you how are they supposed to know what things concern you?  Generally liberals are more group oriented than are conservatives, and tend to be more activist in nature. That's why things in our country have been becoming more and more liberal in nature, even though conservatives outnumber the liberals.  Remember, our nation only works as our founders designed it to work if the citizens participate in its operation.
