Wednesday is the big day! I've taken the day off work and plan to be at the Tea Party in Tampa early. I am excited about meeting with so many like minded people and joining with them to raise our voices together to let the political class know that we are going to put an end to "business as usual."
In case you are one of those people that gets their "news" from the MSM, you have probably never heard of us. The Tea Party movement is a nationwide phenomenon fueled by citizens who are fed up with our government's disregard for the founding principals that led this country to greatness. Participation in this movement is open to every citizen who believes in smaller government, less spending and less taxation. This is NOT a Republican movement or a Libertarian movement or tied to any political party. This is a peoples' movement. If you believe in the Constitution of the United States, join us. If you believe that the roll of the federal government is defense and infrastructure, join us. If you believe, as Pres Gerald Ford said, that we are a people who has a government and not a government who has a country, join us. We stand for less spending, less taxes and increased personal liberty and responsibility. We are WE THE PEOPLE.
As this movement has grown, some of the more unsavory elements of our society as started to take notice. Counter protests are expected as well some low brow tactics such as infiltration by wingnuts who will try to discredit the movement. Not to worry. So far their antics have been fairly lame.
So I look forward to seeing all of you wednesday. Bring your children and show them democracy at its finest. Also bring your signs and your voices. Let's make ourselves heard!
