A Word on Today’s Tea Parties

Today many people around the country will get together for a unified cause. This cause was voiced on the Chicago Exchange floor by Rick Santelli. He said what everybody had been thinking at the time, that we are fed up with the spending of government and it needs to stop. We all realize that Obama is going to raise taxes, print money, and/or create debt. None of these are good, especially considering it is always in the interest of the politician to do the last two.

It is true that in early Constitutional America there were a few tax revolts for taxes that were much smaller than the ones we are complaining about today. It is true that Americans have gotten used to the way their government is. But it takes more than just getting mad once to change the way our government is run. We need to win the intellectual battle, so I challenge you to read people like Adam Smith, F.A. Hayek, Ludwig von Mises, and many others. This way we as a society can further the belief in liberty to our children and so on.

Let us not forget today and continue with this on tomorrow. Let us not delude ourselves to think that any politician will save our hard-earned money. Instead let us wake from our apathy and realize that our government is set up in a way in which politicians stay in power by spreading the costs and concentrating the benefits. This is why every district hates Congress but loves their Congressman or woman.

We have to remember where we have stepped into a world where not littering and being political correct has been placed higher than liberty. The Boston Tea Party was one where white males dressed up as Indians and threw tea into the water. Today none of you will even think about doing that because of the consequences. I am not saying do those things but I just want all the supports of these tea parties to realize exactly where we are today.

Today is important but always be thinking about tomorrow!
