Tea Parties

I attended one in Ft Meyers yesterday, and drove by another street corner Tea Party protest. The Ft Meyers tea party had about 3000 people. Another 1000 showed up on the corner of U.S. 41 and Pine Ridge road. Fun for all. Great to meet and be with other people who are coming to the same conslusions about the direction Amreica is headed. Bankruptcy is not the right course for America.

Saddling future generations with mountains of debt is the surest way to ruin ever seen in the USA.

“We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debt, as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our calling and our creeds… [we will] have no time to think, no means of calling our miss-managers to account but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers… And this is the tendency of all human governments. A departure from principle in one instance becomes a precedent for [another ]… till the bulk of society is reduced to be mere automatons of misery… And the fore-horse of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression.” — Thomas Jefferson

Best Line of the Day comes from the Greenville, S.C., Tea Party:

"They will be selling the 'Obama burger' — you pay for one and they cut it in half and give the rest to the guy behind you for free!!"

Shows a clear understanding of how Socialist-Democrats and Obama policy works.
