"Time for a Tea Party
There's a storm abrewin'. What happens when good, responsible people keep
quiet? Washington has forgotten they work for us.. We don't work for them.
Throwing good money after bad is NOT the answer. I am sick of the midnight,
closed door sessions to come up with a plan. I am sick of Congress raking CEO's
over the coals while they, themselves, have defaulted on their taxes. I am sick
of the bailed out companies having lavish vacations and retreats on my
dollar. I am sick of being told it is
MY responsibility to rescue people that, knowingly, bought more house than
they could afford. I am sick of being made to feel it is my patriotic duty to
pay MORE taxes. I, like all of you, am a responsible citizen. I pay my taxes.
I live on a budget and I don't ask someone else to carry the burden for poor
decisions I may make. I have emailed my congressmen and senators asking them
to NOT vote for the stimulus package as it was written without reading it
first. No one listened. They voted for it, pork and all.
O.K. folks, here it is. You may think you are just one voice and what you
think won't make a difference.. Well, yes it will and YES, WE CAN!! If you are
disgusted and angry with the way Washington is handling our taxes. If you are
fearful of the fallout from the reckless spending of BILLIONS to bailout and
"stimulate" without accountability and
responsibility then we need to become ONE, LOUD VOICE THAT CAN BE HEARD FROM
EVERY CITY, TOWN, SUBURB AND HOME IN AMERICA. There is a growing protest to
demand that Congress, the President and his cabinet LISTEN to us, the
Citizens. What is being done in Washington is NOT the way to handle the
economic free fall.
So, here's the plan. On April 1, 2009, all Ameicans are asked to send a
TEABAG to Washinton , D.C. You do not have to enclose a note or any other
information unless you so desire. Just a TEABAG.
Many cities are organizing protests. If you simply search, "New American Tea
Party", several sites will come up. If you aren't the 'protester' type,
simply make your one voice heard with a TEABAG. Your one voice will become a roar
when joined with millions of others that feel the same way. Yes, something
needs to be done but the lack of confidence as shown by the steady decline in
the stock market speaks volumes.
This was not my idea. I visited the sites of the 'New American Tea Pary' and
an online survey showed over 90% of thousands said they would send the
teabag on April 1. Why, April 1?? We want them to reach Washington by April 15.
Will you do it? I will. Send it to;1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Washington , D.C.
Forward this to everyone in your address book. Visit the website below for
more information about the 'New American Tea Party'. I would encourage
everyone to go ahead and get the envelope ready to mail, then
just drop it in the mail April 1. Can't guarantee what the postage will be
by then, it is going up as we speak, but have your envelope ready. What will
this cost you? A little time and a 40 something cent stamp.
What could you receive in benefits? Maybe, just maybe, our elected officials
will start to listen to the people. Take out the Pork. Tell us how the money
is being spent. We want TRANSPARENCY AND
ACCOUNTABILITY. Remember, the money will be spent over the next 4-5 years.
It is not too late."
