“While we are witnessing the death of democracy at the hands of our own federal government, Tom Perriello is refusing to support an act that would require congress to uphold our Constitution ! The “Enumerated Powers Act” would simply require congress to specify what part of the Constitution gives them the authority to enact a law. Many states are concerned about the socialist direction of our Federal government so they are supporting this resolution to protect the rights of their citizens under the 9th and 10th Amendments. Apparently, Mr. Perriello isn’t as interested in protecting our rights as he is in spending our money. He has been very busy running up debt for expensive socialist policies, giving free health care to illegals and taxing our tobacco farmers out of business during an economic recession. There are too many reasons to be upset with Tom Perriello, but as the voice of the 5th District of Virginia, his refusal to support our constitution and our rights as Americans is unforgivable.
The state of Virginia will not defend democracy. According to “Freedom in the 50 States” published by George Mason University, Virginia “lags far behind on both economic and personal freedom.” The fact is many of Virginia’s elected representatives in both parties don’t believe in personal freedom or democracy for our state or federal government. Tom Perriello, Jim Webb, Mark Warner, and Gov. Tim Kaine consider themselves Progressive socialists and we can not expect any of them to defend our rights when they have been taking away the freedom of Virginians for many years. As the people of Virginia, we must start defending ourselves.
We are witnessing the socialist takeover of our country but our federal and state governments are hoping we wont notice until it’s too late to stop them. Once liberty dies, we will not get it back. Using bailouts and stimulus the federal government is taking over our economy. They are purposely using the economic crisis to massively expand government control in the name of “stimulus.” All federal government “gifts” come with strings attached, allowing government control into every aspect of our lives. It is a fatal mistake to consider any of this as free money or benefits for the American people. “We, the people” will be paying historically high taxes for generations to come, just to keep up the monster our government has created.
Right now, our government is spending 400 million dollars just to find more ways to tax us. Federal taxes will be going up and it could reach as high as 50% of income for our children and grandchildren. Added to this will be a “Value Added Tax”, a 25% Federal sales tax added to EVERYTHING we buy. They are also adding an energy tax called the “Cap and Trade ” which will be added to the cost of gasoline and will increase your utility bill 2000 to 3000 dollars a year. It is not difficult to see how our socialist government plans to enslave us all with these excessive taxes to feed their monster. When Mr. Perriello brings home “stimulus,” shouldn’t we weigh it against the costs to our freedom and prosperity. This isn’t a fair trade, and it is morally wrong to pass this legacy of socialism and debt to our children and grandchildren.
We are a socialist country now, but our government is quickly moving toward fascism. They are threatening our gun rights, free speech, health care and Christianity. By next year, we will not recognize America anymore and it may be too late to stop them. It is time to draw a line in the sand and fight back. Our battle begins with Tom Perriello. ALL of us need to call Mr. Perriello’s office in Washington DC at 202-225-4711. Tell his staff that we, the people of the 5th District of Virginia demand he support our constitutional rights and the Enumerated Powers Act. And, we will not tolerate any of their plans to raise our taxes to pay for this governments out of control spending. We all need to call back often, until he hears us. Please talk to your friends, family and coworkers about the future of our country and the choice of socialism and fascism or democracy. If you decide to choose democracy, offer your talents and voice to the cause and join the revolution. Go to The Jefferson Area Tea Party at vateaparty.wordpress.com and take part in the many battles underway for our freedom. To stay informed, send your requests for email updates on the Virginia revolution to email@example.com We are urging everyone especially veterans, church groups and college students to plan to attend the march on Washington DC on July 4th, our Independence Day.”
Letter to the Editor
Written by Concerned Citizen Patricia E.
Note:Patricia has attempted to have this letter published in several newspapers in the southern part of the 5th district and was told by one editor that her letter was of no interest to her readers. I encourage everyone to become involved through phone calls, faxes, letters to the editor as well as local and regional rallies. Don’t forget about the Charlottesville Independence Day Celebration and Tea Party, tell your friends and neighbors. Since our representatives will not be in Washington we will be inviting them to our Tea Party, to hear the people not to speak at it.
