April 15 Tax Day … Tea Party Day Across America … Let Yourself be Heard


As Americans are filing their taxes today, they are also filing in line to head off the TEA PARTIES across the United States as they have had enough. Tax Day has become a National Protest Day. There are a reported 300 Tea Parties in 50 states today to protest protest higher taxes and out of control government spending. It is “We the People” who are finally standing up and saying, ENOUGH!


There is no political party behind these rallies, no grand right-wing conspiracy, not even a 501(c) group like MoveOn.org.

So who’s behind the Tax Day tea parties? Ordinary folks who are using the power of the Internet to organize. For a number of years, techno-geeks have been organizing “flash crowds” — groups of people, coordinated by text or cellphone, who converge on a particular location and then do something silly, like the pillow fights that popped up in 50 cities earlier this month. This is part of a general phenomenon dubbed “Smart Mobs” by Howard Rheingold, author of a book by the same title, in which modern communications and social-networking technologies allow quick coordination among large numbers of people who don’t know each other.

As stated at Macsmind, the Tea Parties bring out the “heart of Conservative America.” Tead_offThe point of tea parties are not to be anti-Obama or anti-establishment to government. It is to remind America what made America. Our Founding Fathers and the brave patriots who fought a War of Independence from the English Crown and King did not do so in order to have an America one instead. What happened to fiscal responsibility in the United States? What happened to corporate and government responsibility? The answer cannot be for the government to just keep spending money, printing money and taxing Americans.

Make no mistake out it, the Tea Parties are a shot across the bow to politicians and especially so-called Republicans that the people will not tolerate the ridiculous increases in taxes to create a Socialist nation. The point of government is not supposed to make future generations pay for their sins. Some taxes are necessary; however, to just continually raise taxes and spend money in bailouts like druken sailors is never the answer.

Where will you be for Tea Party Day? This is a chance for “We the People” to make our voices heard. They will be held all 50 states across America in cities and towns alike. Go to TaxDayTeaParty.com and choose a state.

      Go to the Tea Party near you just to
      talk with and listen to others that
      think the same. This is just the
      first sign of The People waking up
      from a 20 year nap!

      #2 Your politicians and your whole damn country is screwed up and must be constantly HIGH! How else do you explain your weirdo comrades to exonerate Osama in the 9/11 attacks?

      F U and all your fellow countrypersons!

      I’d like to know the percentage of the protestors that actually voted for Obambi.

      Just left the Pittsburgh Tea Party… fantastic turnout despite the rain! Glenn Meakem’s speech… incredible!

      More proof CNN has become Al-Jazeera West.

      It is no wonder they suck so efficiently.

      Someone really should throw the switch over
      there and put them out of their misery.

      Brady Bunch and Good Times re-runs would
      pull bigger ratings & revenue.

      I just left the Burleson Tx Tea Party. A few k people there is my guess. (libral hispanic looking) Cops writing U turn (my guess) tickets just South of the event. I u turned to the event also as soon as the 4 cops were overloaded…a number of others vehicles followed me. Busy place. The cops were being rediculous.

      The program was all planned out. I wanted to talk on the mike a minute, but there was no chance. Not that I would have made a great “change” anyway.

      I talked to several people trying to see what is most on thier minds: Giveaway money government? Bailouts. Sorry network news not reporting bad associations of Obama, election cheating, decietfull behavior, lies and con job on inferior minds. People are sick of Pelosi, and people are sick of doing the right things with sacrifices and having to giveaway to those who do the wrong things. Worried that this can only get far worse fast.

      My guess is, if Obama does not find a different change, there will be fewer rules at tax parties next year. Actually I disliked a rule or so posted around the event.

      By going, I hope I helped save the country our founding fathers built. It is not in me to be protesting and violent…such is the nature of most conservatives. Those we disagree with most would be tearing up things and network news would report all sorts of justifications for vile actions. Will be interesting to see if good guys and gals do have the ability to be heard.

      Back from Tea Party on the beach in 25mph winds blowing
      sand into the 1000-1100 people gathered around the
      local radio celebs. This is truly grass roots stuff. Folks are
      motivated more than I’ve seen. The big flags were flapping
      so loud in the wind it was hard to hear the speakers even
      with big sound equipment placed all around.

      What was probably the icing on the cake for the tea parties was when Rick Perry, Texas’ governor stated that Texas can secede from the union. That will draw a lot of attention but more importantly it sends the message that these movements are serious for such strong words to be used. While the media will say they Texas does not have the right to do this outright (there are some court cases which agree, there are certain paths they can take to get this goal).

      While they do not have the right to do this outright, there are certain paths they can take to get this goal. Come on, you know this is possible because this is the same country which gives exceptions to tax cheats through cleaver legal

      Really it is just using the legal system creatively.

      Texas probably has the best chance at success. Here is just one way how it can work. The annexation agreement made when Texas joined the union provided that Texas would be able to divide into 5 states. This would create 8 more conservative Senators.

      If Texas were to try to divide and be rebuffed, the US would be in violation of the agreement and Texas should be able to go free.

      It is not all that far fetched. More here:

      I wanted to attend the rally but was not able to however I support the rallies that were held all over the United States. I have been waiting for years and my hopes for people to wake up and see the light. The country has been looking through rose-colored glasses for too many years. Hurrah for all the thousands who came out to have their voices heard.

    13. Dolf on April 16th, 2009 1:42 am

      scott, again

      your head should not be up your (edit)!!!

      btw. what do you mean.

      the Dutchies who fought in Iraq or the Dutchies that are still fighting in Afghanistan?
      SM: OK, both of you knock it off. Debate the issue and stop the personal attacks.


    14. scott on April 16th, 2009 7:40 am

      LOL…the Dutchies who fought in the Iraq war? Are you kidding? You mean the hundreds you have over there who BTW are NOT on the front lines. Give me a break. They are all probably smoking opium in some cave somewhere with Bin Laden.

      Your government can not even “govern” Aruba. The Dutch let an American girl get murdered without prosecution of a Dutchscum Van der Sloot.

      BTW, how are you doing Joran?

    15. Jim from New York on April 16th, 2009 8:28 am

      The next step is the start a movement to repeal the 16 th amendment. That amendment repealed Article 1 section 9, clause 4 of the Constitution, which bars the current income tax system. Income taxes are allowed under that now repealed clause of the Constitution:

      “There appears to be no dispute about the plain requirements of the Constitution that direct taxes must be apportioned and that indirect taxes must be uniform.”

      By eliminating the apportionment and uniformity requirements, the Federal Government was give the unlimited and unrestrained ability to tax people. The limits on the power to tax that were so wisely placed in the Constitution, were designed to constrain abusive taxing powers.

      A repeal of the 16 th amendment will not eliminate the power to levy Federal income taxes, but mere impose the apportionment and uniformity requirement. Satisfying those requirements are politically unpalatable . That would necessarily result in a excise tax as a substitute, probably a consumption tax such as a national sale tax. Without an income tax, a national sales tax would be far better. People could largely control their taxes by deciding how they spend their money. It would also fuel capital formation at a rate not seen in 125 years.

      I say we start here and now the movement to repeal the 16 th amendment.

    16. Dolf on April 16th, 2009 8:37 am

      yep those Dutch marines who fought and died.

      again, taking cheap shots.
      I’ll take Reds advice and be the more mature 1 here.
      even towards something like you.

    17. Michelle Smith on April 16th, 2009 10:36 am

      Dolf, why do you continually come here and talk shit? You are not American and you have nothing to contribute to the conversation. STAY OUT OF OUR BUSINESS. Is your life that boring that you have to peruse the boards and look for ways to speak ill of Americans? GET THE HELL OUT.

    18. Dolf on April 20th, 2009 7:34 am

      do you have a better reason then: your not American?

      and if you mean your conversation: you liberal, you bad, you socialist and communist

      yep, to that nosense I have nothing to add.
