Craziest Photos from Tax Day Tea Parties


Digg It!

Like the videos, I’ll keep adding more as I find them.  What the hell are they protesting?  It seems to be a smorgasbord of right wing ideas that have been rejected by the electorate.  Check out videos as well.

    It is actually quite simple what we were protesting:

    Limited Government – As our Founding Fathers recognized, restraint of government is necessary to protect the liberties of the people.

    Fiscal Responsibility – Government at all levels must learn to live within its means. To saddle future generations with the crushing burden of our excess spending is unconscionable.

    Personal Responsibility – Liberty is unsustainable without responsibility. Each citizen must take responsibility for the consequences of his or her own actions while respecting the rights and dignity of others.

    The Rule of Law – Consistent, independent and uniform application of the law is critical to a free and prosperous society.

    National Sovereignty – We must maintain a strong national defense, effective security for our borders, and sole control over our land and our laws.

    If limited government, and responsibility are ideas that you feel are rejected then we are in scary times. However, I feel almost the same way every time I see a liberal rally. It’s okay to disagree, as long as personal and vicious attacks are left out. I thank you for not taking it that route — for the most part.

    My favorite thing to watch rally is Global Warming. With the best quote being: “The fact that the earth is cooling just proves that global warming exists and we are really getting warmer.”

      Hi Lance,

      My full impressions from the Tea Party I attended are currently available. The problem with your list is that they are slogans and not specific goals. Usually protests are held for very specific reasons (getting out of Iraq, WTO, NAFTA, etc). Peruse my new article and let me know what you think of it.
