Don’t Tax Me Bro!

Born Free, Taxed to Death

I Didn’t Read the Bill Either!

Thank You Sir, May I Have Another?

Dear Congress, You Cap Us, We Trade You! Love, Your Boss

Just a few Tea Party slogans that I found interesting today as I googled ideas for my own signs. I found some good ones at http://www.freesignartwork.com/tea-party.html.

I have been looking forward to the next tea party since the one I attended on tax day. When I found out that Tulsa was having one on July 4th, I felt like a kid in a candy store I was so excited. I believe these tea parties are one great beneficial way that America is coming together to protest and help restore our country to what it once was.

This country was founded on the Constitution, which so boldly starts off with “We The People,” and if you haven’t read at least the preamble in a while I suggest you do so. You can find the entire constitution here: http://www.usconstitution.net/const.html

It is our duty as American citizens to make sure our state and local representatives are doing their job. These tea parties are one way to show them that we mean business and we demand them to listen to our cries to take our country back.

I am fortunate enough to live in a “red state” and I respect Oklahoma’s Represenatives and Congressmen. John Sullivan actually spoke briefly at the Tulsa tea party and it was a great honor to see him helping to support such a noble cause.

My husband will be attending the tea party with me this Saturday. While he’s not into politics as much as I am, I assured him he will enjoy the rally as much as I will. By the way, if anyone from Oklahoma is reading this, please check out http://www.okfortea.com/ as we would love to have you show up at the tea party.

I believe it is things like the tea parties that will restore this nation to the beliefs and ideals that were once founded and expressed in the Declaraion of Independece. One of my favorite lines from this great document is:

“That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government”

http://www.ushistory.org/Declaration/document/index.htm

It is time, America. Time to wake up and realize the destruction going on in D.C. by both sides of the political street. Time to realize that we CAN make a difference as to who is in office and we don’t have to put up with the wrong doings that are going on currently! I urge you to email, call or fax your senators and congressmen and women. Don’t know the numbers? Here’s a convenient website! http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm

For too long we have been doing the same thing. Voting for whoever is in our political party. I highly suggest you take a look at the major issues at hand and really dig deep into the people running for office in 2010 and 2012 and base your vote off of their principles and values rather than just their party affiliation.

We need to take back America and you can help. Join your local tea party this week (or whenever the next one is) and let’s show D.C. we mean business. Enough of the pork barrel spending. Enough of the taxes. We need people in office who TRULY believe in what our Founding Fathers stood for and we have been acknowledging for the last 200+ years.

Who needs “hope and change” when you have faith?
