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!!!

But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored.  Liberty, once lost, is lost forever." -- John Adams, (1735 –1826) , letter to Abigail Adams, July 17, 1775

(Scary, isn't it?  Under our current administration we are obviously closer to losing our freedoms  than we have ever been before.  Do conservatives have enough guts and commitment to put a stop to it?)


"By gnawing through a dike, even a rat may drown a nation."  - Edmond Burke


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.

Thomas G. West and Douglas A. Jeffrey, The Rise & Decline of Constitutional Government in America

PLAN NOW TO ATTEND A 4th OF JULY TEA PARTY IN YOUR COMMUNITY.  IF THERE ISN'T ONE ALREADY PLANNED ORGANIZE ONE YOURSELF.  GET AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE TO ATTEND.

DON'T ALLOW POLITICIANS TO PARTICIPATE (they will want to, and they will try to).  TEA PARTIES ARE ABOUT "US" SPEAKING TO "THEM," NOT ABOUT "THEM" SPEAKING TO "US."

Obama Administration is touting their budget cuts (?), BUT, all the cuts seem to be in areas that are in national security, conservative programs, personal freedoms, and in areas relating to decreasing the costs of government:  http://sweetness-light.com/archive/just-look-at-what-obama-is-cutting

.... and cuts in funds for regulating unions:  http://spectator.org/blog/2009/05/07/obama-slashes-union-enforcemen

Liberals just love to define themselves by that word, "liberal," but that is precisely what they are not.  If we want to accurately describe what they are then we must use the words, "statists," or,"progressives:"  http://www.onenewsnow.com/Blog/Default.aspx?id=522402

Why does the Obama Administration want the GPS coordinates of your residence's front door???  It cannot be for the US Census.  The US Constitution says, "Representation and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers ... . The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct." -- Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution of the United States. The important thing to note is that the operative word there is "enumeration."  That means counting.  It does not mean names, addresses, number of doorways, number of bathtubs, number of television sets, etc, etc, etc.  Why then are the census people asking questions that fall outside of those required and authorized by the Constitution???  Also, why has the Obama Administration moved the operation of the census from the Department of Commerce to the White House and put Rahm Emanuel in charge of it?  Given the history of those involved the only reasonable answer is to manipulate the results for political purposes (make that liberal purposes):

BEWARE!!!!  This is an attempt by politicians to take over the TEA Party movement for their own purposes.  Politicians should not be a part of TEA Party get togethers.  TEA Partys should be for the purpose of, "us speaking to them, not them speaking to us."  Keep politicians out of the TEA Parties:  http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0509/22436.html

“A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to The 'United States of America', for an amount of 'up to and including my life.'” (Author unknown)

"I stood up, I showed up, I stepped forward. I raised my right hand, I stood in the gap, I walked in the fire. I did not run, I did not hide, I did not dodge, I did not evade.
Consequently...  I have nothing to prove, no one to convince.  Those who matter, already know.  Those who don't, never will."  (Author Unknown)

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.
