The Tea Party

Today I participated in the Tea Party tax and big government protest at Santa Ana, California in the shadow of the courthouse where I used to work. There were five Tea Party protests in Orange County so there was a smaller crowd at the courthouse this year - maybe three hundred people. Possibly a few more than that. I read a cynical news report on CNN today, more or less making fun of the movement. It's the typical state-run media line we've heard for a long time. I rarely watch mainstream media news because it spouts the Democratic Party line without wavering. They've lost credibility and their ratings show it.

The government has separated itself from the Constitution, from the best interests of the people, and it pursues a reckless policy of spending without restraint. Unemployment continues to climb because you can't spend your way out of a recession. Socialized medicine has been a train wreck in every nation where it has been attempted. Unrestrained Federal spending will have a blow back effect and the condition of the country will only get worse because we have yet to feel the sting of inflation - but we will. It's the law of cause and effect. Socialism doesn't work, barack hussein obama is an enemy to the American people, and it's not a revenue problem in America (need for more taxes), it's a spending problem.

That's why I have made signs and showed up at these protests. I realize that I'm only one voice, but who would I be if I didn't try to make that voice heard?

It's his future that hangs in the balance, not mine.

Tea parties must be working, they're driving the demos nits. An unsuccessful campaign would be ignored by the libs.

Griffin, sorry LL.

Awww, Griffith is so adorable. He sure is growing!

All I will say about the politics LL, the more I study, the more I'm beginning to understand.

Opus #6 said...

Excellent sentiments.

But excuse me while I gaze at his perfection. What a picture!

Darlin' - the politicians are trying to stick it to us and we don't like it. They're trying to paint anyone with an opinion other than their as "crazy".

Opus #6 - he's a beautiful boy, who looks remarkably like his grandfather at that age. I call him "the Little Admiral" because of his potential Navy Career. I also call him the "Little Prince". All the kids and grandkids get nicknames.

WoFat - the current regime in Washington is an evil conniving bunch of crooks. Not to say that we don't almost always have a bunch of crooks in high office in this country. barack hussein obama has taken the art of thievery to a new level.
