I wanted to pass this post along to all of you who wondered how the Tea Party went. It was a great success. I think we will see even more in the month to come!
For once the protesters had jobs. For once the protesters were dressed in actual clothing not some kind of dirty retro hemp robes. For once the protesters did not sing Kumbya. For once the protesters did not throw things at the police. Conservatives at a protest? Something new?
Whenever you read about any type of protest in this country it is always populated by the leftists. They love a good protest. I think that in actuality, many of them are hoping the The Grateful Dead will be playing at the protest or that someone will be giving away free money.
Conservatives are getting madder by the day about our new leaders out of control spending. The answer to every problem seems to be "spend more money". Yeah, we all know that President Bush spent like a drunken sailor. And for 8 years we were told by libs that he was spending way too much. Most of us conservatives did not like his spending and spoke up about it. Now our leader has quadrupled the national debt. Nice answer to a problem. Hey we owe 1 trillion dollars that we can't pay. Yeah we are mad about it but lets go ahead and increase it to 4 trillion. What a great business mind the man must have. Of course, to the folks that solve every problem that way, the money they spend is not theirs. The sentiment out there in this country is anger and it is growing.
Just the fact that people with jobs had to take time off work to go and protest is big news. Add to that the fact that protest has always been the domain of liberals and leftists. This has got to be tough for the libs. I have noticed that many of them are trying to spin the Tea Party protests as something put on by some big evil corporations (as if corporations are populated by non-people or something). I even read an article that tried to convince it's readers that "this can't be a real Tea Party, for a real Tea Party has to do with taxation without representation". Go ahead you big govt loving libs and keep on trying to convince yourselves of that.
Even worse news for a lot of hard core lefties is that many of the Tea Parties were attended by loads of Democrats. Dems who probably voted for our new leader and now have realized that he is a sham. His hope and change equals no hope and no change coming back.
