Okay, the bulk of this thread is a partisan flame war which I just skimmed over so forgive me if this has already been addressed:
Why is it that there is such a buzz about these supposed "Tea Parties" when it is impossible to find any info on them? The MSM is for the most part ignoring them, and doing a google search only yields results about the worldnetdaily news story or stories about the stories. There are pics of some small-ish demonstrations, but I have yet to find one iota of evidence that any are actually being organized. Where are these? I can find the latest NAMBLA meeting info for any state in the country, but I cannot find one Tea Party?
Something smells here...

Exaclty what did happen - nothing!
What would "of" happened?
We'd have $1.7 Trillion dollars to give directly to homeowners and buyers.
The bailouts and stimulus programs have saved ZERO homes from foreclosure.
Bailout money went strictly to financial institutions to improve their balance sheets.
Stimulus money goes to state and federal programs, none of which has refinanced a single home.
The largest "rescue" gov't. program for mortgage assistance had fewer than 1,000 applicants and has only been given to a few hundred of those.
Any other salvage programs were run privately by lenders and servicers.
(edit to show what would've happened)

First, I want to clarify that I will fight in whatever arena I can to secure my childrens safety and freedom. I am not sure I made that clear in my first post here.
Having said that, martial law may not be only enforced by our soldiers. The UN will probably step in. So then we not only fight our own govt, we fight the worlds. NWO anyone? I think we the people can win, but it will take extreme resolve and a clear plan to win. Then we will need a plan for after the war so we don't have more of the same, if there is anything left.
I'm ready to fight, but not for a lost cause or more of the same.

The liberals and Obama are loving these "stimulus" bills.
It's just another way to make the government bigger in their eyes.
At least Bush publicly said many times he was very disappointed that he had to sign them but he felt he had to at the time.
Probably from all the liberal vultures in congress and in the media putting pressure on him.
Funny how nothings changed since Obama took office but no one is saying anything about the same exact issues to obama.
