Tea Party News Commentary for 2/11/2010

Poll finds most Americans are unhappy with government
- Two-thirds of Americans are "dissatisfied" or downright "angry" about the way the federal government is working, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. On average, the public estimates that 53 cents of every tax dollar they send to Washington is "wasted."


Is anyone surprised by this story? Unless you have been in a vegetative state, (i.e. only get your news from the Lame Stream, Least Coast & Worst Coast, Media) you know that the Tea Party Movement, and the 9-12 project, both started from the sparks of Fly-over country anger. People are upset, and frightened, at the rapid advancement of the Federal Government, into everyday control of personal and private sector interests, that were once considered "off-limits". The bulk of the media in America, has tried, very hard, to portray these Grassroots grassfires, as "astro-turf", or extremist and racist. However, this is either, a total misunderstanding of the movement, or an intentional attempt to undermine and divide, by the leftist media.

As many of you are aware, I was one of the first Tea Party organizers. Joining 53 other cities across the US on February 27, 2009, as a direct response to Rick Santelli's "Chicago Tea Party" rant on February 17th. These first Tea Parties, were truly "grassroots", with most of the organizers being just "average Joe Sixpack", having never been to a protest, let alone organized one. We had all just "had enough", and decided to do something about it.

Well, that sentiment has only grown, since then. The Federal Government, and our "representatives" in Congress have continued to ignore the wishes of the American people, and continued to grow the Federal Government, and spend HUGE sums of money, at an alarming rate! The people of the United States of America have awakened, rubbed the sleep out of our eyes, taken a look around, and said STOP!!!!!! This November, and in many cases, this July, the American people will speak at the polls, and say "the Status Quo has got to GO!"
