Tea Parties

Did you go to one? Alas, I could not. You know, with school and mom and dad both having to work... So, unfortunately, we didn't get to a tea party. What's that? You don't know what I'm talking about? Okay, here it is:

Across the United States of America today, "Tea Parties" were being held to protest the governments outrageous spending program and the fact that the governments gotten a little bit too much into our personal lives. They're called Tea Parties because of the Boston Tea Party where Americans protested against taxation without representation. So, that's what the Tea Parties are about.

Glenn Beck went to one at the Alamo in Texas, and we watched while we were eating dinner. It was cool. He talked about how we as Americans need to stand up for the truth, not just parties. We need to stand up for what's RIGHT. Not "right" or "left", just for the truth. I love America, but we need to get our senses together. Mostly common sense. We're on the road to Socialism, which, let me tell you, isn't a good thing. It's a very BAD thing. Very bad. So, let's get our heads together and tell the government that they work for us. We elected those people! It's time they start doing what we told them to. Their job is to protect us and our freedoms, not take them away.

Now, I don't want anyone commenting on this post. Usually, I like to know people are reading my blog, but I don't want to get into a debate with someone on my blog. So just read, or not read. You have that freedom. For now. ;)
