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!!!
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.
"A little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical.... it is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government." -- Thomas Jefferson (1743-1823), Letter to James Madison, January 30, 1787
(Sooo true. But it requires the involvement of the citizenry.)
"The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all." -- Thomas Jefferson (1743-1823), to Abigail Adams, February 22, 1787
(Well, there you have it. Are you up to the task? How about organizing a TEA Party for the 4th of July?)
"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
The most important moral of all is that excellence is where you find it. I would extend this generalization to cover not just higher education but all education from vocational high school to graduate school. We must learn to honor excellence, indeed to demand it in every socially accepted human activity, however humble that activity, and to scorn shoddiness, however exalted the activity. An excellent plumber is infinitely more admirable than an incompetent philosopher. The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because philosophy is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water. --- John William Gardner (1912 - )
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."
The really important thing to keep in mind about our Constitution is that it is not a document of restrictions on government. It is, rather, a document of permissions. - G. T. Baker

You know what the really bad thing about this? It is that so far the Democrats are looking for the reason why this has happened. Sheeeesh: http://www.usatoday.com/money/perfi/taxes/2009-05-26-irs-tax-revenue-down_N.htm
