tea party tax revoltTea Parties are taking place all over the USA this April 15th as a show of revolt against the massive spending the federal government has embarked on.

Menifee is having one too.

It's being organized through Facebook, so if you have a Facebook account, you can sign up for it here...

Jackie Stuart, who's organizing this thing, will be watching this Facebook group to see how many people join in on it. If there's less than 200 people by April 15th, she'll move it to Temecula and join with them.

The Tea Party will be a bunch of people standing along Newport Rd, between Evans Rd and Bradley Rd, holding signs. She's asking people to make signs that read any of the following, "Signs should display sayings like: Give Me Liberty, Not debt! Don’t Tax Me Bro! Don’t Stimulate, Liberate! Read My Lipstick-No New Bailouts!"

I'd like to see a sign that says, "Give me some too!"

Personally, I think it's a good idea to have a tax revolt. You can't be a free man if you're deeper in debt to Uncle Sam. But it's nothing new; the Libertarian Party have been holding nationwide tax revolts on April 15 every year since the 1970s. What's taken conservatives so long to get with the program?

  1. Good greif, we should have had a revolt when Geo took us into a unnessecary war where we lost 4000+ American lives. You guys had the last eight years to do things your way and look what happened. Your out!

  2. You are absolutely correct! I am all for the tax revolt but lets revolt against sending more troops to Afghanistan...enough is enough...American lives and billions of US dollar gone. Tea party and Tax revolt... come on people.. wake up.

  3. How ironic... a tax revolt lining city streets... built with taxpayer money.

  4. Yeah, and how many of those protestors will put their money where their mouth is and not pay their taxes this year?

  5. I agree with the points posted by the blogger on 4/4/09 at 11:13 a.m. Remember, Democratic President Clinton left office with a budget surplus and Republican George Bush with the assistance of the Republican controlled U.S. Congress created an economic mess over eight years that President Obama and the Democratic Congress are trying to correct. Thus far, after nearly 2.5 months of the Obama Presidency, the stock market has made its biggest gains since 1933. Are the protesters going to rail against the strengthening economy after eight years of Republican control?

  6. What country do you live in? Our economy is the worst it's been in years. Our job loss is the worst it's been in years. Our taxes are the highest it's been in years and our freedom is being taken away bit by bit forcing us closer and closer to socialism. Obama and his congress needs to re-read the constitution.

  7. Your freedom is being taken away as we get closer to socialism? How about when our freedom was taken away with the hilariously named Patriot Act?

  8. To the bloggers on 4/4/09 at 10:52 p.m. and 4/5/09 at 12:28 a.m., have you read the news over the past two weeks? Surely, you know that President Clinton left office with a budget surplus and President Bush left office with a record budget deficit. Of course, there are still job losses as a result of the Bush Administration mishandling of the economy. However, the stock market has made the biggest increases since 1933. This fact was stated in the press only a couple of days ago.

    For both of you, please read instead of name calling. It took President Roosevelt, a democrat to implement policies to keep the Depressiion from getting worse and the collapse of the United States from years of Republican controll of the government and the failed economic theory of laissez faire.

    The same situation is true today. It will take the same type of measures to keep the severe economic downturn from going into a 1930s type of Depression.

  9. "Your freedom is being taken away as we get closer to socialism? How about when our freedom was taken away with the hilariously named Patriot Act?"

    I completely agree. I never said Bush didn't have a hand in this. Don't put words in my mouth. This isn't about parties. People and politicians need to get over that and go back to following the Constitution.

  10. After President Hubert Hoover, a Republican, didn't establish economic policies after the 1929 economic crash but relied on Laissiez Faire philosophy to let the economy correct itself. The economy didn't correct itself. So, Hoover finally decided to draw up plans for government intervention but it was too late. He was not relected due to the deepening depression.

    President Roosevelt was elected such as Obama was elected to do something about the economy. Roosevelt immediately tackled the economy under the cries of socialism and communism hurled at him by the Republicans. It can be argued that Roosevelt kept the country from economic collapse and perhaps from Fascism.

  11. Worst economy in years, two wars that have been mismanaged, funding for infrastructure is 30 years behind, stem cell research was delayed, gays continue to have their civil rights spit on, and half of all Americans lack health insurance, etc...yet all the cons can complain about is tax increases? Have you ever stopped to THINK about how we got here. 30 years of faulty conservative ideology and nobody calling our politicians on it. Yes Clinton left us in a very good place, but he also chose to neglect many issues that could have helped us aleviate the present day hardships. We have to spend now, because we have failed to spend in the past, except on wars, corporate welfare, international "aid", etc...
    Feel free to stand on a street corner looking like a moron. It is your right and you should always be willing to step forth and speak your mind. If the thinking people of America had stepped up 9 years ago, we wouldn't be in this mess. But we are, so what are we to do. Tax cuts have never, I repeat NEVER, created stimulus. Not 70 years ago, not now. I am willing to pay more in taxes if I leave your children and my children a better country to live in. Yes our children will probably pay more in taxes, but if we can contain the party of no, from creating any more damage, our children will have a country they can be proud of. By the way, the constant use of the word "socialism" only makes the said individuals look naive and idiotic. Our nation needs to balance the right of corporations to make money honestly, while providing the services our society needs to become stronger. The free market isn't what made this country strong. It was the middle class, the working class. The blood, sweat and tears of those whose lives did not center on the stock market, but on their own daily jobs. Teachers, construction workers, bricklayers, cops, small business owners, etc... When America turned it's back on the working class, they turned their back on those who made this country what it is. We have made this mess, now it is time to bite the bullet, take our medicine, and deal with the pain. It won't result in socialism, but the priorities of America are changing. The tax hating, government hating, Reagan worshiping conservative is a thing of the past. Feel free to stand on a street corner with your signs. You are doing it for yourself. Not your country or anyone else. Just yourself.

  12. To the previous poster "Amen to that"!!

  13. Most of you posters have just enough propaganda to justify your positions. The facts, however, are that over the last 6 months the government has decided to spend more money that we have since the founding of the Republic COMBINED. Obama and Congress (sans Republican support, BTW) has increased the deficit more in the last 8 weeks than GWB did over the last 8 years, as if that wasn't bad enough.

    Again, this isn't about political parties, but we should have our facts straight. Bush and the GOP have their share of blame, and they spent too much and squandered their time in power, but from what I see on U-Tube, it was Barney Frank and his friends saying that Fanny and Freddie were not in need of more regulation at a time when GOP was calling for more. It's on video, there's no denying it. Blaming the GOP and cheering for Democrats is just ignorant.

    The purpose of the "Tax Revolt" is basically because we believe the State and Federal governments need to stop spending money, especially in a economic downturn, and start cutting spending. Our taxes just went up dramatically in California, and we are spending money at the federal level at an astronomical rate. TRILLIONS of dollars. It's irresponsible and immoral, and it's very similar to the way things went when the Roman Empire collapsed.

    If you love your freedom, stand up and take control of your Government, before the Government takes control of you through excessive taxes. They will own you otherwise.

    Your post is so filled with inaccuracies, I can't even pick one to challenge you on. OK, wait, here's one:

    "The free market isn't what made this country strong. It was the middle class, the working class."

    Can you tell me, please, in which vacuous environment the middle class, the working class made this country great? We, the middle class, do our work in a Free Market, Capitalist Society.

    If there is no Free Market, you work for the Government. The government itself produces NOTHING. Government takes money from the FREE Market, through taxes. It doesn't produce wealth. The markets CREATE wealth, businesses produce products, people are employed by businesses, and receive their wealth from their work, they take their earned income home and spend it on products so that companies who sell the products can make more to sell and employ more people.

    Clinton left a budget 'surplus' only because the GOP congress made him. That was part of their Contract With America - a balanced budget.

    After 9/11, the market tanked, and ever since then had been gradually recovering until last spring when banks started failing. They started failing because of corruption and government mismanagement - Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and the gang. Do some research... Check U-Tube, the video is there for all to see, or ignore as the case may be.

    This is just a sample of the folly you put forth as a post. I would not even comment on it, except that I'm afraid many who are posting in this thread may believe your smoke and mirrors rant.

    You seem to lack basic facts about how our economy works, and the nature of the free market system that has made America the greatest country on the planet. You should also get a little education on forms of government. Socialism is synonymous with "Total Government Control" and is on the same side of the spectrum as Communism, Fascism, Totalitarianism, Dictatorships and Oligarchies.
