America Save Yourself!

I went to a Tea-Party last week and not the kind with actual tea and crumpets. 😉
It was very interesting. I thought it was just going to be a bunch of radicals shouting about how the man was getting them down. There was a little bit of that but it was a lot more reasonable than I expected. Here are just a few of my thoughts and the main points of the meeting.
One of the men who spoke talked about how our rights are God given. The Declaration of Independence says that men are “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights…” The only way that the government can take our rights is if we choose to give them. We do this by accepting government money and government programs. His solution to the problem was getting Idaho to stop accepting money and balance its own budget. Which I think is incredibly unrealistic. The only way that is possible is if the state raised its own taxes or did away with a lot of government funded programs and projects. The citizenry would never go for something like that. No more money to fix our roads and parks and bail us out when we have screwed ourselves with poor decisions. It’s a shame or sham because we are just fooling ourselves. The system is broken and the only way it can be fixed is by individual citizens taking responsibility and making sacrifices. Too bad I don’t ever see how that will happen.

Silly Americans.
