I am attending the TEA PARTY in my area on April 15th to protest the government's destructive spending of my future grandchildren and their grandchildren's livelihood.
I am pushing the pitchfork (figuratively) into the air to tell our government that I am against big government and in favor of them getting off my back. We need to be free of oppression and left alone to live our lives with Liberty and Freedom.
Do you remember Schoolhouse Rock? Check out Michelle's site for some neat links for then.
So what are we fighting for? As Arc was mentioning to me earlier today, so many people know what they "don't" want but really have no clue what they "do" want.
When I sat down to think about it myself, I wondered what I really wanted. I suppose one of the reasons it's hard to determine what I want is because I didn't really think there was a lot wrong with what I already had in regards to fredoms and liberties.
I believe that I am in charge of making my life what it is and it's up to me to succeed or fail.
One of the scary things to think about is wondering how many different laws and practices have been put into our system that you and I don't know anything about; how many just happened while we were sleeping. We vote individuals into office to represent us but unless we're watching them like hawks, we really don't know if they are doing their job.
So what I want is to know that politicians are not sitting in Washington DC destroying my future with the sweep of a pen. I want to be reassured that they aren't making justifications for taking away my freedoms and my liberties.
Let the people be!
And here's a little humor to brighten your day...
