PURPOSE:

To upset you!  To anger you!

To show you enough of the abuses of liberalism that you will get involved.

To encourage you to contact your elected representatives and object.

NOTHING WILL CHANGE UNTIL YOU DO!!!

"Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this passion must be superior to all private passions.  Men must be ready, they must pride themselves and be happy to sacrifice their private pleasures, passions and interests, nay, their private friendships and dearest connections, when they stand in competition with the rights of society." --  John Adams (1735-1826), Ltr to Mercy Warren, 1776

(The price of integrity in government)

The people must also be self-assertive. They must have the spirit of the old Revolutionary War flag: "Don't tread on me!" They must be vigilant against those, at home or abroad, in or out of government, who might wish to trample on their rights. They must be courageous and manly, with a sense of honor, so that in hard times they will stand up and fight, and not slink away slavishly so as to avoid trouble and danger.

RECOMMENDATION - if you plan to attend a TEA party tomorrow we recommend one or both of the following for signs or placards to carry:  "Obey The Constitution," because ignoring it is the root cause of most of our problems; and; "Recall!, Recall!, Recall!," because those are probably the only words that make a politician pay attention.

More than 90% of US voters said "NO" to amnesty for illegal aliens when the bill was introduced in 2000.  Now, in opposition to the wishes of the huge majority of citizens, the Dems are bringing it back:  http://www.foxbusiness.com/story/dream-act-illegal-alien-amnesty-bad-idea-worst-possible-time-says-fair/

So far the Democrats have offered not one idea to help people keep the values of the savings, their retirement investments, and the equity in their homes.  At least the Republicans have a better idea:  http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=NjBhNTI0NGJlYTY0YjZkMDc0NzQ3Mjk5MjM3NTYzMTE=

MSNBC with Rachael Maddow and Ana Marie Cox (both ultra liberals) laugh about and denigrate the TEA parties.  What the totally fail to understand is that the TEA parties are not top down political party happenings, they are genuine grass-roots events:  http://townhall.com/blog/g/0da9b8b0-4912-4145-9dd3-fb0b76606166

Are you unhappy with the way many things are going in the USA?  If you are then let your elected representatives hear from you.  Our nation is a "representative republic."  In other words a nation where our legislators are supposed to represent your wishes, but, if you don't let them hear from you how are they supposed to know what things concern you?  Generally liberals are more group oriented than are conservatives, and tend to be more activist in nature. That's why things in our country have been becoming more and more liberal in nature, even though conservatives outnumber the liberals.  Remember, our nation only works as our founders designed it to work if the citizens participate in its operation.
