It is very important that the Tea party movements start using their State governments to undercut the federal government.

You can't trust politicians go give up their own power but you can trust them to fight to advance their own power.

So how do we uses that you ask?

Simple, we got 2 different levels of government which in our case one has derived all its power from the other. the Federal government derived all its power from our States. So all we got to do is get the State political leaders to try and take that power back.

And we can trust that they will try to do that because what ever they take back will for the most part serve to enhance their own political power at the expense of the centralized federal power.

While you might think that's generally a bad thing you would be right but its far better than the federal politicians holding that power instead simply because unlike federal politicians State politicians have a relatively easily escape-able domain limits on their power, they are also much more accountable to your individual vote.

In short we get the tea party's to join with States rights movement we can solve our problem permanently. The way our System was originally designed to work in keeping itself in check.

The best part is, it doesn't really matter if we trust theses particularly State politicians*we should not in general). We can trust them to, just like the federal politicians, to seek to expand their own power and in their case if it comes at the expense of the federal government that is extremely helpful to our cause.

Google Tax Day Tea Party - enter your state information and it should show you all locations or the contact person. See if they need help with anything if possible.

July 4th there are at least a few in California. I saw one for Long Beach, just don't have the details right now.

What you won't hear at your tea party.
At the beginning of this year our national debt was almost 11 trillion, 8 trillion of which came from just the last 3 republican presidents Reagan, Bush and Bush.
When Eisenhower was president our national debt was less than 1 trillion and the top tax rate was over 90%. Our debt has ballooned so we can give handouts to the rich.

You will hear that those informed Americans who oppose taxation without representation by OUR GOVERNMENT do not give a care WHO or which party sits in the seat. The American People are watching and know that the current and last administration have been serving corporations and unions...NOT the People! It is high time we wake up and OUR GOVERNMENT (representatives), work for and represents US!

Are you fed up with a Congress and a president who:

vote for a $500 billion tax bill without even reading it?
are spending trillions of borrowed dollars, leaving a debt our great-grandchildren will be paying?
consistently give special interest groups billions of dollars in earmarks to help get themselves re-elected?
want to take your wealth and redistribute it to others?
punish those who practice responsible financial behavior and reward those who do not?
admit to using the financial hurt of millions as an opportunity to push their political agenda?
run up trillions of dollars of debt and then sell that debt to countries such as China?
want government controlled health care?
want to take away the right to vote with a secret ballot in union elections?
refuse to stop the flow of millions of illegal immigrants into our country?
appoint a defender of child pornography to the Number 2 position in the Justice Department?
want to force doctors and other medical workers to perform abortions against their will?
want to impose a carbon tax on your electricity, gas and home heating fuels?
want to reduce your tax deductibility for charitable gifts?
take money from your family budget to pay for their federal budget?
If so, help organize and/or participate in a Taxed Enough Already (TEA) party in your community on July 4. You choose the time and the location.

What you will hear at the tea partys is the truth.
John mCCain and 19 repulicans what to fix the mess that start the crash.
But because the democrats were raking in millions of dollars they stopped it in committee.
