Welcome To The On-Line TEA PARTY

UPDATE** Not sure why linky isn't doing its job. If you wish to post please leave me the link in the comments. I did a test link but it still says "you're first"? So I don't know. But anytime you wish to join the protest through the weekend I will include you in the give-away which will be a TEA party bumper sticker. I may have two extras to give!!

I was so eager to get started today that I pre-posted so this would hit at midnight or "bednight" as G says while I am still snoozing away in a warm bed. Let's get this TEA party started. TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY! We are TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY AND TEA'd OFF!

So let's get this straight, the economy is tanking and that is a fact. Idiobama said he would fix it all, but he wants to share the wealth. Or take money from you to give to the poor. He is a crook to take from one and give to another. No Robin Hood he!! He claimed he wouldn't raise taxes on those making under $200,000 but that number kept shifting downward while on the campaign trail, plus he raised the taxes on cigarettes which directly affects those making less than $200,000. So he lied.

Then he wants to use the cig tax money on child health or welfare for children. He is counting on people smoking to fund this very large invasive and expensive program. On the one hand he villifies smokers while using their very addiction to fund a welfare program.

Yet, I see no taxes on alcohol. I suppose it is the drug of choice for all those progressive (ie liberal) type folks. So people will stop smoking in the numbers that have been in the past, and the welfare fund for children will be broke unless, you guessed it, he continues to raise taxes!!

Guess what!! It is a proven fact that the government actually collects more money by lowering taxes than raising them. It doesn't seem that it should work that way but more money is paid in when taxes are lower than when taxes are high.

Folks, listen to me, big government is very bad business. When you share the wealth then you stop the motivation to become wealthy. When the motivation is gone, so are the businesses, the poor remain poor, more poor join the ranks, and the government gets bigger. When government gets bigger then you lose your rights.

Look, the housing market fail from a direct hit of government run lending via Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae as well as Democrats (or demoncrats) who wanted no oversite!!!! Because they were profiting from the lending institutions. Anything the government touches breaks. Government has no-NO-no money of its own. The only money government has comes from the pockets of the populace!! That is you and me, folks!!

And if the government starts telling CEOs and company presidents how much they can pay employees or how much they can earn then we have turned into a communist nation. Why should anyone ever try to do well to gain higher and higher positions if the government doesn't allow them to be rewarded. America is a good and prosperous nation that obama wants to change to be more like Europe. We already have a Europe; we don't need another. Problems are everywhere. That is a cold hard fact. Greed reigns everywhere.

Do you think there weren't wealthy people in socialist/communist countries that everyone was equal? They weren't all equal! The rich belonged to the party and were high up in the government. That is who is rich not the general public. In a capitalist system everyone has the same opportunity to become wealthy by starting a business or working very hard up the corporate ladder.

Oh yes, I know it isn't perfect, women and minorities have been held off but socialism doesn't change that!! Look at the ruling class in socialist or communist countries, very few women or minorities are there. Women around the world are impoverished in all systems but we need to change the hearts not capitalism. Women in the US have more opportunities to succeed and do well than anywhere else because of capitalism.

Having the government take and take just makes people stop producing which in turn makes the government step in to take more and more responsibility over individual lives. That is a very scary cycle that we are heading into!! Once on the roller coaster of big government, more taxes it will be very difficult to get off.

Our children will pay with their very lives our debt at this time. It is time to stand up and say ENOUGH-- We are TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY!! No more bailouts, No more signing bills that you don't know what they said, No more firing CEOs of companies to "make an example of them" and NO MORE UNIONS getting union bosses rich on the backs of the workers. Oh and no more "green" policy BS. They are damaging to the poor and create a whole other class of citizens, those who can pay the carbon footprint tax and those who can't but are punished for it. It is damaging to the poor and third world countries.

Now as I said, this is a party. I am giving away something to some lucky participant. What you have to do is write something about the TEA Party on your blog and link the actual post here with Mister Linky. You get that post id by viewing your blog and right click on the date part of the post (usually at the bottom of the post) then "copy shortcut" then come back here to list it in the link table.
If you call your congressmen today and write about it you will have two chances to win. "Call Congress and the president while attending the TAX Day TEA party rally (Representative and Senators, 202-224-3121; President, 202-456-1414). Tell Every American about this effort by forwarding this invitation to your friends. Together we can make a difference. "

If for some reason linky ain't, then leave the post in the comments and I will try to fix it.

Brilliant post! I have been to communist countries and the poverty and corruption is rampant! The despair people feel there is so deep that they truly feel they have no hope. I don't want to see that happen here.

This country needs another Reagan. He wasn't perfect and I disagreed with him on some things, but there was no better leader in my lifetime.
