Tea, Anyone?

So, today’s Tax Day. It’s also the big day for the Tax Day Tea Party!

The Tax Day Tea Party is a national collaborative grassroots effort organized by Smart Girl Politics, Top Conservatives on Twitter, the DontGo Movement and many other online groups/coalitions.

The Tea Party protests, in their current form, began in early 2009 when Rick Santelli, the On Air Editor for CNBC, set out on a rant to expose the bankrupt liberal agenda of the White House Administration and Congress. Specifically, the flawed “Stimulus Bill” and pork filled budget.

During Rick’s rant, he called for a “Chicago Tea Party” where advocates of the free-market system could join in a protest against out of control government spending.

A few days later, grassroots activists and average Joe Americans began organizing what would soon become the Nationwide Chicago Tea Party effort.

On February 27th, an estimated 30,000 Americans took to the street in 40+ cities accross the country in the first nationwide “Tea Party” protest.

Organizers of the February 27th events pledged to continue on with an even bigger and better protest to follow the first. With April 15th being “Tax Day”, it was decided to schedule the second round of Tea Party protests to ride alongside the tax deadline.

And with that, the “Tax Day Tea Party”, the second round of the Nationwide Tea Party protests, moved into reality.

Pretty exciting stuff. Congressman Joe Barton’s going to be at the Tea Party in Arlington at River Legacy Park, and Governor Perry’s going to be at the Tea Party in Fort Worth at LaGrave Field. One of the bigger shows, however, will be in San Antonio. Glenn Beck will be there, and so will Ted Nugent. Ted Nugent’s playing the National Anthem for the party. IN FRONT OF THE FRICKIN’ ALAMO. Seriously, how crazy awesome would that be to see? UGH. I wish I could go…

Alas, I have to go to stinkin’ school tonight. Lame.

At any rate, it’s an exciting time to be a conservative. Nice to see some action being taken. Our governor’s finally growing a pair, and our congressmen are listening to their constituents. Very awesome stuff. Let’s keep it going.
