Of course the thought that you might be attending a “protest” (OH MY!) brings thoughts of Kent State, Iran, or.. whatever.. Never fear! We are protected. The 1st amendment guarantees our right to protest, to call out for redress of our grievances. Its a guarantee folks. Not a changeable thing, as the current administration or leftists in congress might have you believe. It is our RIGHT.
Tea Party Attendees are not “tea baggers.” “Tea bagging” has been a term adopted by the gay left to describe one of their own more colorful activities. Let them have their fun [sic] but I am going to assume the general population of the Tea Party is not gay. (Hey.. that doesn’t exclude you gays out there.. you are taxpayers and getting er um screwed too.. feel free to going the protests.) For clarification I would assume “Tea Partiers” is an appropriate term to describe attendees..
Speaking of “Tea Partiers..” it really cuts to the mood.. Of the Five Tea Party events I have attended, the people have been great, we don’t leave a mess, we get along, and our message is pretty clear. These are FUN events! Very social and even an element of brotherhood. There are folks who come from different back grounds, cultures, belief sets, yet find commonality in the belief that the United States has strayed from its mission, and that government, like a dog let loose from its cage is running out of control.
The numbers are growing, and the interest has increased. This blog is already starting to see the numbers of visitors like it did before the April 15, 2009 Tea Party day.. We received over 20,000 visits to this site in less than a weeks time just prior to Tax Day.. If you think you will be standing alone, think again. You have more friends in this state than you can possibly imagine, and no ignorance by the main stream media outlets can change that. No casual insults by the elitist rent seeker who feed off of an omnipresent governments teat can lessen our resolve.
The July 4, 2009 Tea Party Event in Michigan is going to be awesome! What better way to educate your kids, renew your claim to independence than to attend a peaceful assembly of wonderful people, and let your voice be heard!
