April 15th; Tax Day

Today, April 15th, the day most Americans send in their taxes. It is also the American Tea Party Protest Day (TEA=Taxed Enough Already!)
This isn't partisan politics, it's a case against irresponsible spending.

Are you fed up with a Congress and a president who:

-vote for a $500 billion tax bill without even reading it?
-are spending trillions of borrowed dollars, leaving a debt our great-grandchildren will be paying?
-consistently give special interest groups billions of dollars in earmarks to help get themselves re-elected?
-want to take your wealth and redistribute it to others?
-punish those who practice responsible financial behavior and reward those who do not?
-admit to using the financial hurt of millions as an opportunity to push their political agenda?
-run up trillions of dollars of debt and then sell that debt to countries such as China?
-make our country less stable as a result of this spending, with huge inflation on the horizon
-refuse to acknowledge we are selling our country to the oil countries as they will have the money to pay our down our national debt when we can't
-want government controlled health care?
-refuse to stop the flow of millions of illegal immigrants into our country?
-want to force doctors and other medical workers to perform abortions against their will?
-want to impose a carbon tax on your electricity, gas and home heating fuels?
-want to take away your home mortgage interest deduction?
-want to reduce your tax deductibility for charitable gifts?
-take money from your family budget to pay for their federal budget?
There is no doubt some programs are philanthropic and are for the good of humanity. But when there is government writing checks, there are no balances. Congress (and governors) are lining up with their hands out, clamoring for a huge chunk of change to further their political careers, never considering the monumental debt they are piling on us now and in the future.
Call your congressman today. 202-224-3121. Stop government pork spending.
