Well you see that where you made your mistake. You got caught up in an assumption that I believe that there should be no taxes. This is not true.
TEA stands for Taxed Enough Already. Its not EAT Eliminate All Taxes.
Your taxed enough already. Thats nice.
You are a single voice..the rabidly insane tea party corporate movement is a fringe group.
In a democratic republic, minority voices are heard, but majority decide who will represent what interest. The 3 people next to you may like a
program and will gladly chip in a few bucks to have it stand and your moaning about also having to chip in has little concern.
We are not a free country (contrary to popular beliefs), and the preamble does not even suggest that is what we are after. We want life, liberty, and
the persuit of happiness. See anything missing there? right..freedom...founding fathers didn't suggest we are free to persue personal freedom from
the government..just that we can direct it for those 3 principles.
So..taxed enough already is like telling the sun your tanned enough already. Your not going to shut the sun off, but you can perhaps get some
sunscreen or find a bit of shade
FOC movement is far more relevant than a TEA movement. Fix Our Corruption...taxes would be fine if we were to walk through the entire fiscal process
and eliminate unneeded agencies, red tape, and other things. That mixed with more liberties (stop making some things illegal and instead, regulate and
tax em..you know the things I speak of..and funding for many programs would be perfectly fine without raising taxes more..but don't you find it funny
the "side" that demands such things remain illegal are the same ones shouting no more taxes?...their liberties are required...but anyone elses is
A small fraction of the US resonates with the TEA message...but if it was a call to end corruption of tax dollars, red tape, and unnecessary
agencys/methods, you would have most of america on both sides supporting it..especially the middle of the roaders. Tea party is akin to the PETA of
politics..with taxes being the corporate influences they are trying to protect at all costs.
To admit your a tea party member is to admit you have no clue what this country is about...nor is it addressing any actual problem. Might as well
just say "I will listen to the koch brothers no matter what! Go Sarah Palin!"
