Yesterday my mom, my sisters and I traveled to the Oklahoma City tea party rally. Unfortunately, we only came in during the last maybe 15 minutes of it (bringing a little baby can put you behind schedule), but it was still great to see so many people out there!
In a nutshell, the tea party is about protesting the government's extravagance with our money- specifically the stimulus package. Begun by Rick Santelli, several smaller rallies all over the country are being held- including one in DC at the White House!- are being held before a large rally in Chicago this summer.
I think they should hold it in DC, on the Capitol steps. That would really send a message. Maybe. I do think that even this is probably useless. President Obama isn't going to listen to any voice of reason, because he's trying to further his goals of socialism. He's an insane Communist, hot on the trail of bringing America, the 'Land of the Free and Home of the Brave' to her knees with globalization.
And we're letting it happen. So, even though these 'tea parties' probably won't do anything really, I still feel better participating- I feel like I'm doing something.
