My Local TEA Party!

There is a TEA Party in the works for the Congressional district in which I live. That is the 13th Congressional District of Georgia; which seat is currently held by Representative David Scott.

This is one of those April 15th T.E.A. (Taxed Enough Already) Parties, and is planned to take place in the vicinity of Scott's Congressional office. I think it would be phenomenal if we had a T.E.A. party near the office of every single congressman who (like Scott) voted for these recent big spending bills, and the outrageously huge budget.

Here is the link to this event on FaceBook:

Wednesday, April 15, 2009
3:30pm - 6:30pm
In the general vicinity of Representative David Scott's Congressional office, near City Hall
173 North Main Street
Jonesboro, GA

One of the numerous TEA Party Day rallies scheduled for April 15th, in protest of the current Tax and Spend philosophy in action in Washington. Representative David Scott is among those who continually vote for huge government spending, which inevitably leads to increased taxation.

This is a TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party rally and not intended to specifically be an anti-David Scott rally; But the rally area includes the area in front of his office to send the message to Scott and all our Representatives that we will remember their Tax and Spend voting in the 2010 elections.

Show up to peacefully demonstrate along Main Street in Jonesboro; including the area in front of Scott's congressional office. FairTax promoters also welcomed and encouraged. Suggest finding parking nearby, rather than in the lot of Scott's office.

Bring signs with clear and concise messages against big-government spending etc, to display at the rally. Also feel free to bring a politely worded letter of concern to David Scott's Congressional office, if you will arrive before 5PM. All signs and messages should be polite, even if firm. Please no profanity of any kind!
I think the whole concept of this type of T.E.A. Party is a great one. Rather than dumping Tea overboard, or committing some equivalent act of modern vandalism, we peacefully but unequivocally server notice to our "non-representing representatives" that we will VOTE them "overboard", if they don't' quickly change their ways!

Let's all show up at our local TEA Parties to support spending restraint, limited taxation, and maybe even get a plug in for the FairTax while we are at it!
