Get Ready For A Party!

Get ready for The TAX DAY TEA PARTY here in Houston.

It's pretty simple. If you think Washington and our politicians are out of control spenders and you don't want your children and grandchildren saddled with enormous debt, then you are the one who needs to attend this tea party. It's one of many across the country.

If you don't believe that we can spend our way out of this economic crisis, then you need to attend. If you are sick of "bailouts' then you need to attend. If you think that government is overreaching and too intrusive, then you need to attend. If you believe in a government that is supposed to be for the people and by the people, then you need to attend.

This is about change. But it's isn't about one man or one party. It's about us. You and me, the American taxpayer, upon which the burden of all this spending will fall.

Channel 13 did a story on it Thurs. See it here.

Here are the details:

April 15 Wednesday 4 p.m. lasting indefinitely - Jones Plaza – 601 Louisiana St Houston TX 77201 by the downtown Post Office Houston

Mark your calender RIGHT NOW.

I went to a organizational meeting of The Tea Party yesterday in Houston. Over 60 people showed up and it was clear they had had enough. Although this was largely a conservative/libertarian group, political labels weren't used. This isn't about Republicans or Democrats. It's about the people of this great country fed up with Washington invading our lives and spending money we don't have. It's about standing up against the unfair burden Washington is forcing upon us.

If you don't believe me, you should have heard the crowd when certain high ranking Republican politicians who wished to speak at the tea party were mentioned. A big "NO' roared from the group. It was clear that this group was as mad at the Republicans for spending as they were at the Democrats. Almost everyone agreed that this wasn't about the politicians or elected officials, this was about the weary taxpayer. It was about the people. It was about the constitution and what it demands of limited government.

Revolution. Liberty.

Be There.
