Americans are tead!
Are you fed up with high taxes, 3.6 trillion budget, mismanaged government, tax cheats; well, maybe it is time for another tea party. Remember the one in 1773? You may have read about it when you were in school; the Boston Tea Party. Then again, maybe not. Let me refresh your memory. A group of colonist in Boston were showing their protest against the British government. On December 16, (just happens to be my wedding anniversary) after officials in Boston refused to return three shiploads of taxed tea to Britain, a group of colonists boarded the ships and destroyed the tea by throwing it into Boston Harbor. Well, we probably don't want to go to a harbor and dump tea, but sending a few "tags" from tea bags to Washington, D.C., might be good for starters! Don't send the whole bag as it probably will not make it past security! Now, if you're not sure this applies to you, then you might want to listen to Thomas Paine. You remember Thomas Paine don't you? He was fighting for what he believed in.
On April 15, you can join your fellow Americans at Tax Day Tea Parties across the nation to say no to the Obama budget and no to big government. Check out the following Web site for a location near you: Tea Party Day.com
THIS IS WHO I AM
- Utah, United States
- I am a retired grandmother who lost her husband of 42 years in 2010, to cancer. I relocated from Ventura, CA to a community near Salt Lake City, Utah to be with my son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters. I am a believer in Jesus our Lord and in the true Sabbath as our worship day. I am learning more and more about what our role is here on Earth as well as what it will be when Yahshua returns. I love crochet, watercolors, and writing. My newest passion is writing poetry. I would love to hear from others who enjoy these crafts; come visit and share your interests.
JULY 4 - Time For Tea
The American people came out on July 4 to protest high taxes and run-a-way government spending. From 11:00 till 2:00 p.m., citizens of Ventura, CA came out to show their support for less taxes and less government interference. As a spectator and one who attended the first Ventura Tea Party, I would say we doubled the turnout of patriots.
All across the country the signs, flags and banners that were carried at the tea parties showed the position that the American people are taking toward its government. They are mad and they are not going to take it anymore!
