How Much Are You Willing To Pay In Taxes? Let’s Dump Some Tea
Posted by Nancy on March 5, 2009
As the president’s vision for our socialist future becomes increasingly clear, and the tanking stock market shows what Main St. and Wall St. think of it, a grassroots movement to Just Say No is gaining steam. That steam is being used to brew some old fashioned tea parties.
Between those Tea Parties, Glenn Beck’s efforts to show that We Surround Them, some Democrats refusing to sign Obama’s budget bill, and the nervous reticence of friends who formerly bragged about supporting The One, the cracks in his support are beginning to widen. Even far left New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, of all people, is beginning to notice some problems.
Team Obama sounds hollow, chanting that “the status quo is not acceptable,” even while conceding that the president is accepting the status quo by signing a budget festooned with pork.
U.S. companies already pay the highest taxes in the world, putting them at a disadvantage with competitors in every other developed country. Can we really plan to raise taxes even higher and expect an economic recovery to come from it, or will more of them just pick up and move overseas? Michelle Malkin has an article about entrepreneurs and high wage earners who are already “going Galt.”
Attend a tea party and tell the government to get their hands out of our pockets; they are destroying the very things that have made America great. No more taxes, and no more talk demonizing achievement. No more wasteful government programs either, including national public service for our children and retirees.
You can find information for events planned for April 15, tax day, at tax day tea party – click on your state to see if one is already planned there, and if not start planning your own. Lots of help is available there and other places to put one together, including the Tea Party page on this site. Or you could go to re-tea party for information on parties planned for the Fourth of July; they also suggest everyone send a tea bag to their representatives in Washington on April 1. Another site to check out is pjtv, where they have a list of planned July 4 tea parties and the organizers’ contact information.
Attend a Tea Party near you, and bring your own sign – the more creative the better. Since this is a true grass roots effort there will be no mass produced signs brought by your local ”community organizers.”
