What is being protested on April 15th? Here’s my answer: People are waking up to the consequences of statist social engineering and the resulting erosion of the rule of law. I’m particularly fed up with the assault on 1st Amendment protections of political speech, the continuing attempt to parse the plain meaning of the 2nd Amendment into meaninglessness and the practiced, willfull ignorance of the 9th and 10th Amendments. YMMV
I am tired of the resulting metastasis of the general government. I’m furious about the elite cadre of entrenched looters, in government and among its corporatist fellow travelers, who steal the fruits of our labor and then use the spoils to chip away at our liberty. It must stop.
This is not a partisan protest. Republicans and Democrats are both culpable. If Tea Parties represent a nascent revolution, they do so in a bipartisan manner that neither the current “great uniter” nor the previous one could grasp.
It’s time to end the recycling of the tiresome “progressive” ideas of Woodrow Wilson, et. al., that call the Constitution passé.
See you at the Tea Party. Your grandchildren’s freedom and prosperity are on the line.
Rumors are afloat that some far-left organizations plan to “infiltrate” Tea Parties on April 15th. They would pretend to support the protest. Therefore, if you are asked to sign anything at the rally be certain to read the entire document. That’s just Common Sense. It wouldn’t hurt to get the name and address, and a picture of anyone asking for your signature.
