Tax Day Tea Party

Tomorrow is tax day, tomorrow is April 15....and tomorrow I'm going to hold a protest sign for the first time in my life. Tomorrow I'm going to the Tax Day Tea Party at the Humboldt County Courthouse at 11:30 am. Join me if you wish.

Tomorrow I will stand, waving the flag with hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of Americans all around the country and say to my government: enough is enough. Do not print more money and raise the National Debt so large that my grandchildren will bear the brunt of attempting to pay off. STOP FUNDING PORK.

When times are tough, my family tightens our belts and we make do with what we have, we don't spend money we don't have. In good times we save money to help us in lean times. We didn't buy houses we couldn't afford, we lived within our means. Our government needs to learn that lesson.

I have joined the 9/12 Project. Check it out HERE.

The project talks about the 9 Principles:
1. America is good.
2. I believe in God.
3. I must always try to be an more honest person than I was yesterday.
6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.

Read them all.

and 12 Values:
Honesty, Reverence, Hope, Thrift, Humility, Charity, Courage, are among them.
I believe America can find it's way again. I believe there is a silent majority of citizens that need to be heard. I'm not calling Republicans, Democrats, Greens or Independents....I'm calling AMERICANS. We can't bail out everyone. We need to be responsible for our actions. We need to hold people accountable for their actions. We need to leave a future to our Grandbabies.

If you don't agree with me, hey, we can still be friends, right? But I'd love for you to join me on Tax Day for a Tea Party...not in Boston (unless you live there!), but in your hometown to say "I am an American. I count."
Look for me at the courthouse. I'll be the one waving a flag.
There now, I just stepped off my soap box.
