Welcome to my new blog! TEA

For those of you who are scrappers, you may know me as Digital Art by Steph. I felt compelled to start a political blog since what is happening in our nation is frightening and WE MUST SPEAK OUT! A great movement has started and all over this weekend, there were TEA parties. Thousands were in attendance without ANY media announcement or coverage (a couple of them had one or two reporters in attendance, however). This just shows you how concerned average Americans are with the direction our nation is taking.

Take a look at the photos taken at the event in Orlando yesterday here. Okay, you probably are wondering what is TEA? It means Taxed ENOUGH Already! There are literally hundreds of groups and thousands of members. Check out my Facebook page for the TEA party link there. Although TEA parties have started, the BIG event is April 15, 2009 where at least 1000 parties will be held all over the U.S. in front of city halls. Read here for information about your area.

What struck me the most about the photos is that people were courteous, polite, dedicated but no violence, cursing, shedding clothes (lol) and all had homemade signs. This was a grassroots event and people in attendance are citizens who have never participated in a protest before these events. They are individuals who are horrified at the reckless spending in Washington, angry that Washington is completely ignoring the voters AND the U.S. Constitution and demanding that this madness cease. You'll notice very little media attention since it isn't exactly a liberal event and the corporate bigwigs that run these alphabet television and radio stations don't want YOU, the public to know that the average American IS demanding answers.

Just remember this: during the early days of the birth of our country, the men who wrote the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution and who took a stand against the taxation by England were a small minority of the population. Folks, it doesn't take a big percentage to make a difference. Make your voices heard so the President and his minions can't ignore us any more. We want our country back!

  1. Well I am glad you're doing good works on your blog, dear Steph! I've read all of your posts and couldn't agree more. We all need help, and it's apparent that us 'sheep' need to flock together to get things changed. Sadly, it may be a long while before that happens. Best wishes, and keep up the good work!
    Huggies & love,
