This is history repeating itself. Americans across the country have had enough of taxing us for government mistakes and greed. Who will the government tax when the middle and upper class have no more to spare?
God Bless all who are standing up for their rights to protest what is happening in OUR country. Our freedoms are slowly being taken away from us in every possible way.
We vote our leaders in to work for us, not the other way around. Just look at your paycheck, your monthly bills, your real estate taxes and you will see just how much you are working for the government. Taxes upon taxes with no reason other than the government can impose them on hard working Americans.Too many "experts" out there spend to much time devising ways to double talk Americans. Health care, our educational system, the Social Security debate, Medicare, Social Services for illegal immigrants - this is where are tax dollars are going. Numbers are spewed across the news media that are so astronomical that there is no way to have checks and balances of where the money is truly going. What happen to all the JOBS the stimulus plan was suppose to create? How will we ever be able to pay down the amount that said was needed to stimulate the economy? What happened to the crisis that has all in fear a couple of months ago? All talk and no action. This is why Americans are having tea parties. Unfortunately, we do not have the time or money to have a true tea party - dressed to the hilt, being served in lavish settings like our government officials. We must take a stand or instead of tea and crumpets we will be standing on bread lines and only having bread and water available to us.Nancy Pelosi has an agenda to fill. Yet, we as Americans do not have to assist her in filling it to the brink. She, as many know is involved in the tuna industry. Bills were passed to protect her source of income, by making sure the employees of this company have little rights and receive minimum pay. She wants all Americans to be "the same.". No rewards for hard work, determination, and creativity. Doling out a couple of dollars here and there to us and promising to bring down "corporations" for their evil ways. Yes, many corporations did not do the right thing, yet, many government officials are involved in these corporations. Why? To help them get elected.

The President,you have to look at his home, his car, his jet, and his lavish lifestyle to see that what he preaches is not what he practices. The middle class, who for years have been silent for too long, are finding the time to stand up for their rights as Americans. Grass root Tea Parties are growing in numbers. We can no longer stand by and let illegal immigrants have parades for their "rights", as we are the ones paying for their freedom to live in America. Colleges across America are teaching what they want to teach instead of true history. Textbooks are being rewritten to impose the extreme left theories and ideals. We must keep America a place where the American Dream can be achieved by reaping what you sow. Too many are living off the blood, sweat, and tears of our hardworking Americans toils.

I applaud the Tea Parties. God Bless America and are Troops past and present who have faught for these freedoms. It is time to continue these Tea Parties to make sure Americans are protected from taxitation without representation. Right your government officials, right editiorals in your local newspapers, be proud to be an American, hang your flag, do not be afraid to stand up for what you believe in. For too long we Americans have been told to be politically correct. Who is deciding what we should and should not say?

Small towns across the United States are becoming ghost towns. Hospitals are closing and doctors are walking away for their practices. Middle class Americans parents have to decide on whether to send their children to college or pay their mortgage.

We have a Declaration of Indepdence and Constitution that is being compromised and interrupted by too many that do not have Americans best interest at heart.

Our forefathers set the guidelines in place. It is up to all to protect these valuable documents from destruction.

While I can see some of the things you are talking about, I am not sure that it is all for the worse. We need change in order to survive. The rights you are referring to where given to thew American people in a very different time. Over time the American people have proven that they can not be responsible with these rights. This is the reason our government needs to step up and change a few things.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
We live in a country where we're supposed to have freedom of the press and religious freedom, but I think to some degree, there's a sense of fear in America today, that if you say the wrong thing, what some people will consider what is wrong, if you step out of line, if you dissent, whether you be an entertainer, that somehow and some way this government or the forces to be will come down on you.
Restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions. It is the one un-American act that could most easily defeat us.

Overview of Changes to Legal Rights:
* FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION: Government may monitor religious and political institutions without suspecting criminal activity to assist terror investigation.

* FREEDOM OF INFORMATION: Government has closed once-public immigration hearings, has secretly detained hundreds of people without charges, and has encouraged bureaucrats to resist public records requests.

* FREEDOM OF SPEECH: Government may prosecute librarians or keepers of any other records if they tell anyone that the government subpoenaed information related to a terror investigation.

* RIGHT TO LEGAL REPRESENTATION: Government may monitor federal prison jailhouse conversations between attorneys and clients, and deny lawyers to Americans accused of crimes.

* FREEDOM FROM UNREASONABLE SEARCHES: Government may search and seize Americans' papers and effects without probable cause to assist terror investigation.

* RIGHT TO A SPEEDY AND PUBLIC TRIAL: Government may jail Americans indefinitely without a trial.

* RIGHT TO LIBERTY: Americans may be jailed without being charged or being able to confront witnesses against them.

So the government has taken away basic freedoms. They seem to think the only way to make us safer is to stop being American and start being communist.

Most Americans are still missing the big picture. You're all still using words like terror, and terrorist, that your so called leader has drilled into your head. at the rate you guys are learning i bet you still think that it was Bin Laden and his band of 'terrorists' that orchestrated 9/11. Hows about you point your finger at the president. At least that would be closer to the money, there are many 'conspiracy theories' I dunno which ones true but there is some truth in it. Something isn't right in my opinion. Americans (the government not its people) are the terrorists, not all, i am in no way prejudice toward one group of people, just the ones stupid enough to warmonger without asking questions 'MY PRESIDENT IS AWESOME, I WOULD DIE FOR MY PRESIDENT. LETS GO KILL SOME EVIL TERRORISTS HOORAH!!!' Got news for you..Your pres wouldn't die for you guys. Just sayin.. Wake up guys, these are YOUR united states are they not? You're American, and proud to be, remember the constitution, shit im Canadian and i know the constitution. You're not free, why do you have to pay to live if you're all equal? im not trying to be an ass, or point my finger at any group of people in general other than then the concept of government, i would like to think i still have the right to an opinion, may as well express it before my government takes that away too. Take back your United States. Peace and love brothers and sisters, i say this not as a canadian, but a human being, were all equal its about time we start acting it.

Canadian, you are so right. I am a United States citizen and I see whats happening in our country,but I'm afraid we have allowed it to go too far to actually save it without another revolution. Our leaders have positioned themselves to where they can do as they please with any American citizen, or any person in the world! We actually have no rights left at all! Our nation is on a downhill slide with nothing to stop us from hitting the bottom..

How can we trust a government that no matter who is in office funded the nazi war machine by the way was the bush family or our present clown in office who signed the ndaa bill? We are in serious danger of losing our civil liberties and any freedom we still may have. Our government Haas become an evil empire that steamrolls anyone who attempts to make a stand.
