Over the last few weeks we have been getting much support for the Tea Party. A group of dedicated people have come together to help make this a successful event. These people are sacrificing their free time and spending their own money to make sure that we can make a statement that will be noticed by thousands. It is people like these that are willing to give something of themselves that make America great. They believe in the Constitution and what our founders stood for and want to get back to these ideals.
Having said that I am now going to say something that may piss off a few people. Over the past week I have received emails from people who for some reason or other are not happy about the timing or place of the event. It is not convenient for them, traffic is too heavy that time of day. It is midweek why not have it on a Saturday? It’s too early, why not have it later. I would like to be there but I am going to be busy.
Too busy to save your country? I am so glad that our founders weren’t too busy to fight for our freedom. I am so glad that the men and women who fought in our wars weren’t too busy to join the service and defend us. Some of the Founding Father’s sacrificed there lively hood to fight for this country’s freedom. Some even lost their businesses and faced bankruptcy because of their sacrifice.
People will ask for time off to go to a concert, a football or basketball game.These same people won’t ask to get off an hour early to make a stand for their God given rights. It is no wonder that our country is being overrun by politicians whose only desire is power and what that power can do for them. Like the proverbial frog the heat is being turned up and before we know it we will be cooked. So I have just one warning for the busy people. When you finally have the time to make a statement it just maybe too late.
