The mainstream media is trying very hard to ignore it. Some self-proclaimed pundits are calling it a fad without a cause. Democrats are calling it a vain attempt by the Republican party to gain support. Congress is, in a most rare demonstration of restraint, remaining most unusually silent.
Well, no matter what you want to call it and no matter if you choose to not see it, American disgust with our government is brewing like a kettle on a hot stove and April 15th is scheduled to be the first showing that tempers having reached the boiling point.
Unlike the first tea party, this one will be – by intention – bloodless. And perhaps it is that seeming quietness that causes those who prefer raucous excitement, those armchair warriors who like to watch man’s inhumanity to man from the safety of their living rooms, to dismiss it as not being somehow “newsworthy”.
They couldn’t be more wrong.
This country is in serious trouble. For almost 100 years we have been shepherded by those who use that tantalizing little word “progressive” to coerce ever-innovative and inventive, dreaming Americans to accept one loss of freedom after another. To slyly encourage a collective disregard for the basic foundation of this country – the Constitution and the Bill of Rights – in favor of some false handout of a chicken in every pot, always hiding the fact that they have quietly been killing off the chicken farmers.
The end has come. Those who would destroy America for their own nefarious purposes have finally been exposed for the hypocritical, dangerous traitors that they are. Americans can clearly see those who, contrary to their mothers’ warnings, have gone out in public wearing dirty underwear. And it ain’t a pretty sight.
So on April 15th Americans will gather together under the symbolism of the original Tea Party. They will gather in protest of government grown beyond recognition, grown far, far beyond original intent. They will gather to send a message that what we are for is the cessation of spending for entitlement and for a return of our basic rights. They will gather whether or not the media chooses to report on it because the message is not for the media, it is for the behemoth that is become our government.
Where will you be on April 15th? I would hope that you will spend an hour with those who share your anger and your fears for both your future and that of your children, that you will do the one thing that will get the attention of our myopic “unrepresenting representatives” – assemble peacefully in a great number. They are not used to seeing our faces; we have become little more than numbers to be pursued for reelection to a cushy job. But the truth is that they work for us and when they work against us – as is now the case – we must stand up and tell them NO.
We, the people, have no more excuses. It is time to take back control of OUR government.
See you at the party.
