Yesterday, I spoke at the Tax Day Tea Party in Washington, D.C. Concerned citizens braved pouring rain to join me in voicing concern over a rapidly expanding Federal government.
The significance of the Tea Party movement cannot be underestimated. The people are protesting future government growth and taxation that they know will result from the reckless spending of Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid. This is a sophisticated response, from an engaged electorate, that cares passionately about the future of our nation.
Americans should continue to support the Tea Party movement and express their opinions with public demonstration. It is important that this momentum is turned into action. That means support for the right candidates, folks running for office themselves, writing to and staying engaged with their representatives in Washington, and remaining vigilant in the cause for liberty.
I also participated in an online chat with the Washington Post, on taxes and the Tea Parties, which you can find here.
