These Tea Parties are grassroots movements of Americans from all walks of life who are fed up with our government spending us into oblivion.
This movement is neither right nor left, neither liberal nor conservative.
Most of us are equally angry at the people who sit on both sides of aisle,
and who, for the past 12 years have told us the beguiling lie that we can spend ourselves into prosperity.
Our anger is not aimed at a particular administration; it is at our representatives in Congress who have not listened to us, and are so arrogant that they do not even bother to read and understand the bills they vote on. It is about bills so full of pork spending, that like TARP, they grow from 4 pages to over 900 pages.
It is about Senator Chuck Schumer, who does not think that We the People "care about pork."
It is about Senator John McCain, who thinks that a cap-and-trade tax on emissions is a good idea in the middle of a recession. It is about former President George W. Bush, who pushed for and signed the TARP spending bill. And it is about current President Barack Obama, who pushed for and signed the so-called Stimulus Bill.
