I wish I could have joined in ... but being self employed, if I don't work, I don't get paid. Unfortunately I have to work to support my family and couldn't attend. If I was able to be there, I would have taken Brady out of school to march too. However, I was thrilled that Boise, Idaho had a great turn out. I'll just keep sending letters to our government officials encouraging them to STOP SPENDING. (pictures are from http://www.fox.com/).
I heard there was a sign that said, "Stop Fiscal Child Abuse". It is true that what we are doing now by over spending and making big government is going to affect our children. Government is out of control and needs to hear from us! We need to stand up for our liberty!
This photo is from our local station, KTVB.com on the Boise Idaho rally. Yeah for Idahoans who were there to let our voices be heard.
These are the reasons for the Tea Party gatherings around the U.S. today are below... We need to stand up against big government. We are the people who made this a great nation and we need to keep big government from ruining this great nation. Let your voices be heard and write your state officials.
Are you fed up with a Congress and a president who:
vote for a $500 billion tax bill without even reading it?
are spending trillions of borrowed dollars, leaving a debt our great-grandchildren will be paying?
consistently give special interest groups billions of dollars in earmarks to help get themselves re-elected?
want to take your wealth and redistribute it to others?
punish those who practice responsible financial behavior and reward those who do not?
admit to using the financial hurt of millions as an opportunity to push their political agenda?
run up trillions of dollars of debt and then sell that debt to countries such as China?
want government controlled health care?
want to take away the right to vote with a secret ballot in union elections?
refuse to stop the flow of millions of illegal immigrants into our country?
appoint a defender of child pornography to the Number 2 position in the Justice Department?
want to force doctors and other medical workers to perform abortions against their will?
want to impose a carbon tax on your electricity, gas and home heating fuels?
want to reduce your tax deductibility for charitable gifts?
take money from your family budget to pay for their federal budget?
If so, participate in the TAX Day TEA party rally, the Taxed Enough Already (TEA) party.
