There's a storm abrewin'. What happens
when good, responsible people keep quiet? Washington has forgotten they
work for us. We don't work for them. Throwing good money after bad is
NOT the answer. I am sick of the midnight, closed door sessions to come
up with a plan. I am sick of Congress raking CEO's over the coals while
they, themselves, have defaulted on their taxes. I am sick of the bailed
out companies having lavish vacations and retreats on my dollar. I am
sick of being told it is MY responsibility to rescue people that,
knowingly, bought more house than they could afford. I am sick of being
made to feel it is my patriotic duty to pay MORE taxes. I, like all of
you, am a responsible citizen. I pay my taxes. I live on a budget and I
don't ask someone else to carry the burden for poor decisions I may
make. I have e-mailed my congressmen and senators asking them to NOT
vote for the stimulus package as it was written without reading it
first. No one listened. They voted for it, pork and all.
O.K. folks, here it is. You may think
you are just one voice and what you think won't make a difference. Well,
yes it will and YES, WE CAN!! If you are disgusted and angry with the
way Washington is handling our taxes. If you are fearful of the fallout
from the reckless spending of BILLIONS to bailout and "stimulate"
without accountability and responsibility then we need to become ONE,
LOUD VOICE THAT CAN BE HEARD FROM EVERY CITY, TOWN, SUBURB AND HOME IN
AMERICA. There is a growing protest to demand that Congress, the
President and his cabinet LISTEN to us, the American Citizens. What is
being done in Washington is NOT the way to handle the economic free
So, here's the plan. On April 1, 2009,
all Americans are asked to send a TEABAG to Washington , D.C. You do not
have to enclose a note or any other information unless you so desire.
Just a TEABAG. Many cities are organizing protests. If you simply
search, "New American Tea Party", several sites will come up. If you
aren't the 'protester' type, simply make your one voice heard with a
TEABAG. Your one voice will become a roar when joined with millions of
others that feel the same way. Yes, something needs to be done but the
lack of confidence as shown by the steady decline in the stock market
This was not my idea. I visited the
sites of the 'New American Tea Party's and an online survey showed over
90% of thousands said they would send the tea bag on April 1. Why, April
1?? We want them to reach Washington by April 15. Will you do it? I
will. Send it to; 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Washington , D.C. 20500 .
Forward this to everyone in your
address book. Visit the website below for more information about the
'New American Tea Party'. I would encourage everyone to go ahead and get
the envelope ready to mail, then just drop it in the mail April 1. Can't
guarantee what the postage will be by then, it is going up as we speak,
but have your envelope ready. What will this cost you? A little time and
a 40 something cent stamp.
What could you receive in benefits?
Maybe, just maybe, our elected officials will start to listen to the
people. Take out the Pork. Tell us how the money is being spent. We want
TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY. Remember, the money will be spent over
the next 4-5 years. It is not too late.
Of course, if you agree with the way
things are being done now, just delete!!!!!
