Nationwide Tax Day Tea Party

I touched on this in my last post, but I will make a more concerted effort here to let you all know about this event.

The website for the Tea Party is here.

If the link does not work, cut and paste the following into your browser's address bar:

Look up the nearest city to you and join in the effort to let Washington DC know that we do in fact pay attention to their actions.

If you are happy with what is happening in this country and where it is headed, first off, I have no conceivable idea why you are reading my blog, and second, I wish you well.

If you are less than enthused about recent political developments, then you owe it to your country, and your offspring (and theirs too in all probability...) to stand up and be heard.

Please note that this is not an obstructionist revolt.

I would be very disappointed with the event if it were, but the reports from other Tea Parties around the country are saying that all sorts of people are attending. Republicans, Libertarians, Constitutionalists, Federalists, etc. Even the occasional Democrat has sallied forth to take up the effort.

True, the majority may be Republican or Libertarian, but the fact remains that the actions of the White House, Congress, and the Senate effect us all equally.

Please lend us your help or simply your attendance in whatever city you call home.

I will be attending (I missed the most recent one here in Cincinnati, I'm ashamed to say...) and taking photographs of such if I am not more involved with the organization itself. I have offered my services as event security, and barring that possibility, I have begun to notify local churches as well as the VA, the VFW, the American Legion, and the local Disabled American Veterans offices.
