Right Wing Extremists!

So I guess I'm an extremist because I'm a capitalist. I believe in a free market, the right to bare arms, and freedom of choice, and I'm pro-life, but I guess I should take my fellow extremists, the founding fathers, and leave.

Um... No.

So I went to the Tax Day Tea Party at the Arizona Capitol Building in Phoenix yesterday and it was amazing!There was a reported 10,000 people there and there was speaker after speaker and each person had a unique message that got the people cheering. They covered everything from housing and inheritance taxes, nationalizing health care and the right to bare arms. These were all briefly mentioned, but the main focus, and most of the speakers spoke on different angels of how the government is overspending money they don't have and bailing out freeloaders and failed businesses and how doing this is going to put our children and children's children in the hole trillions of dollars. A common theme on the posters were pictures of children with captions such as, "It's not my debt!" or "Punish your own grand kids!" I even saw a few young kids holding signs saying "Keep your hands out of my piggy bank." There were a lot of signs in the shapes of pigs for lots of reasons.

There was a little bit of attacking Obama, but very little. It was the issues. People spoke about how the government runs out of money and starts to spend ours and says they're giving us tax breaks and we all fall for it and forget to actually think about this because money doesn't have value just because Obama printed it. We WILL have to pay for it. At any rate... Here is a link to a bunch of pictures of the event: Phoenix Tea Party Pics

And here are some of my own:
Of course I had to be goofy...You may think the trees grew there, but they actually came for the protest too.The closest blue tent is were the speakers were. We got even closer than this once people started to get all cost and close togeter.

Let me know if you hear of anything like this happening in the future and I'll do the same for you. I would love to get more involved. I want to be a Right Wing Extremist Activist!

So I just switched my schedules at Albertsons so that I'm able to go to this on Wednesday. I just heard about it the other day, so forgive me for not posting about it earlier. What this is, is a protest against government spending and bailouts. All this stuff I've been talking about and finally something I can do. I'm very excited. So far It's me and I'm pretty sure my brother-in-law Clark is going to join me. If you want to come please, please let me know. If you're worried about our man Obama's spending habits and his recklessness with YOUR money or if you don't think that companies like AIG should get millions and millions of dollars to spend on CEO bonuses or if you think that money should be taken out of political "pet projects" and put back into worthwhile places like our public schools, then you need to be a body in the crowd and no longer be a silent majority!

Lets let our government know that they just need to be a little smarter with our money.
"Be not intimidated... nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice." -John Adams
