They all rally around LIBERTY....

I chose the word LIBERTY on purpose instead of FREEDOM....

These days FREEDOM seems to run amok with FREE FOR ALL.... LIBERTY imparts a certain RESPONSIBILITY. LIBERTY expects certain things of an individual....

Yesterday at the TEA PARTY, there were a huge mix of people. Some were obviously RELIGIOUS RIGHT - sorry, but they are easy to spot with their women all in skirts, tons of kids and that hair style where I wonder how they get it so curly. Some were gawkers - they brought their lunch, kicked off their shoes and some even had their dogs with them, oh, and they didnt clap or cheer or anything. Some were left - LEFT - although I dont think that word does them justice (Left has gotten such a disgusting connotation). These people were GRANOLA lovers - get my drift? Some were students who I wondered if they knew what was going on and not just heard that there was a rally and that is what you are supposed to do in college.....

People from all over the political spectrum and some not even on it. They all rallied around the same idea - LIBERTY. The people yesterday wanted to be FREE. They want to work and keep their earnings - they want to NOT BE AFRAID OF WHAT THE GOVERNMENT WILL DO NEXT - they want to garden and farm without all the oppressive rules - they want to EDUCATE their children the way they see fit - they want to go about their lives, AS THEY WISH and be left alone...

They want to PURSUE HAPPINESS the way each and every one of them define that happiness.

Yes, the Tea Parties were about TAXES - but taxes represent YOUR TIME - how many months do you have to work before you are done paying SOCIAL SECURITY. How many of you wish you could take home your ENTIRE PAYCHECK and then YOU decide how to spend and who to help?

I have yet to see a Government agency take care of needs better than a community.

People who identify "Left" tend to view community as small and in terms of "it takes a village" - people "Right" tend to want to be left alone....

This entirely too big government is a threat to both these groups. In this way, both sides can come together around Liberty. Both groups see Government as the enemy - both groups are right....err....correct.




*** I realize that I left out a group of people who take their dole from this Government and dont want anything to change unless they get more.... Well, I consider those people moot because when this Titanic of a Government meets the Iceberg of Economic Reality, it goes down and takes the moochers with it - unless said moochers realize their situation and get in a Lifeboat of Work Ethic.....

And the whole premise of America WAS that each should have what they wanted. Unfortunately, the "it takes a village" folks have taken over....

Yes, the tea parties covered the spectrum, but the worms in the media, and the cockroaches on Capitol Hill have assigned it all to "right wing extremism", and have even come up with some so called "financial backers" ala Soros and Moveon.org. Lyin' bastards!!!!!
