Tea Parties, Texas Style
(You go Papi!)
Rick Perry Having "Tea" in Austin
So Secession on the horizon? You know Texas has always been 'a whole 'nuther country'. "Texans know how to run Texas"... excellent sound bite from our Governor. Obambi keep your money we don't want any.
Locally, in and around Dallas we were having our own parties.
"We will be called haters, and we are. We are haters of big-spending politicians. We will be called racists, and we are – we are members of the human race," Dennis, a McKinney resident, said as silence turned to roars."
This was not a movement reserved for just Republicans or conservatives, we Libertarians were standing up as well, rallying against big government expansion, federal taxation and, ultimately the insidious form of Socialism being sold to the mass American public by our government. I'm certainly not wanting to be a part of the masses being steamrolled on debt, by our Democratic President Barack Obama. Folks wanted change, hell we certainly have been getting change, although not much in the way of change in our pockets.
Washington. i.e. the elected representatives that we currently have in our government halls need cut spending, taxes and reread the damn Constitution. The Texas slogan, 'Don't Mess With Texas' was seen on posters and signs lining the roadways as thousands turned out yesterday all over the metroplex to stand behind Governor Perry's decision to tell the U.S. government, thanks, but hell no, to the economic/socialist package program. It was a stimulating and exciting imagery seeing so many turning out with one thing in common. Very cool when people driving past honked and waved and shot Peace signs in agreement with the message. Very cool not a bleeding heart beggar for debt anywhere insight.
Word, just say NO to Big Brother. It was an interesting, incredible day.
