Thanks for taking the initiative Lisa! I will be there and will spread the word. You are an inspiring example of how one voice CAN make a difference. Thank you for speaking up and uniting us all!
I will be there for sure, and let all my friends know. Great job Lisa.
I'm there as well, Lisa. And will report about it on my blog.Sean
I will be sure to forward this to as many as possible. Thanks for the hard work!!
Thank you, Lisa! You are a true patriot! The Orlando Division of Florida Patriots - ResistNet.com - supports you 100%!http://www.resistnet.com/group/floridapatriotsorlandodivision
Well done, Lisa. This is a big ol' bump from a Florida FReeper.www.freerepublic.com
Finally we can get people together who are fed up and have had up-to-here with these irresponsible politicians who are spending our money like drunkin sailors. I will do my best to shame all the silent conservatives i know to show up for this event and get involved. something has got to be done. thank you lisa
I'm sorry I won't be able to be there in person, but I will be there in spirit. Thanks to everybody who is able to turn out and participate. I am, however, making a donation and spreading the word. God Bless America!
My family will be there, and I'm spreading the word to everyone I know.. Thank you for spear-heading this. My family is very excited to be a part of this 'tea party'!
Will there be a bin to collect the teabags or should we change Eola's color? Just kidding about Eola.
I plan to be there. Our country needs another tea party.Remember"evil triumphs when good people do nothing!".
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot lift the wage-earner by pulling down the wage-payer. You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot establish security on borrowed money. You cannot build character and courage by taking away men's initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves." --Presbyterian minister William J.H. Boetcker (1873-1962)
I've never been part of something like this before, but its time to stand up for our country. It is under attack by those who would make America into another socialist state. Please spread the word.
Thanks Lisa, you can count on us! Please let the group know how to help get involved in organizing this event.
Thanks Lisa, Grass roots is the way to take our Country back, I will be there and will send this to as many others as I can.
Bring it on!
Lisa, so proud of you and your crew for organizing this! We are looking forward to being there and being HEARD on the 21st!
In conjunction with all the Nationwide Tea Parties going on across the country THIS FRIDAY!,...there is another Orlando Tea Party being planned @ Lake Eola, across from the Panera Bread. This will be a practice rally for the big one in March!http://OrlandoTeaParty.webs.com Great job Lisa!
will be there. It is time for the insanity to stop they are destroying the middle class
I will be there, and I'm e-mailing everyone I know. thanks Lisa
This is just GREAT I served 27 yrs in the millarty and I just cant sit and watch these libs run down our GREAT country. Its time for the silent magnitude to be heard.Its time the nuts in Washington realy know how we the people feel and think about the dumb things that thay aer doing.1sg R Berkowitz
I will be there with my family and all the friends I can get down there. Everyone read "The 5000 Year Leap" - you can get this from nccs.net - (if you buy 10 or more ther're only $5.00 each). INVITE EVERYONE - THIS is important!!Oh, I donated a little to help.
The following is a quote from the Declaration of Independence, "Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.It may well be that our nation is standing at this solemn time in history for such a time as this,May God bless you for your efforts.
Thanks for organizing this event. Let's fire a peaceful round over the bow of all of our elected representatives in D.C. regardless of party affiliation! :-)
I have never attended a rally like this before! It will be my first. I think Democrats, Republicans, and Independents should unite!!! I hope there is a large crowd or the media might write us off as a few nut jobs! Spread the word!!!
Great opportunity to have our voices heard! Have we invited our elected officials?
Thsi is wonderful. I jsut told my husband we need another tea party . I am so glad you are doing this.
This is still the Unitied States and let be known to our elected officials, WE WILL NOT GO QUITELY INTO THE STILL NIGHT, WE WILL NOT BE HERDED LIKE LIKE A FLOCK OF SHEEP. You are the servants not the masters. We the people can overcome any challenges our nation faces. Let this event be peaceful but firm in our resolve that we will be heard. Thanks Lisa see you on the 21st and DOn't quIT.
I will be there! And right now I'm working on getting my family down there as well!! Thanks Lisa!!
Fantastic! I will be there with many friends who haven't lost their minds.
Great job! I can't make it but I sent you a donation to help. About time we took our country back!! Thank you SO MUCH!!
This is what we have all been waiting for...and thank you for it. Hope it is a success and provides continuing support for the ideals we espouse. There is no other way!
Thank you, Lisa for being a true patriot. I will stand with my fellow concerned citizens on March 21 and feel so proud that I am involved in something so important for all of us. It is a defining moment for us all.
I will be honored to take the field with my fellow concernced citizens. Together we can make a big voice which cannot be ignored.
I will be honored to take the field with my fellow concerned citizens. Together we can make a big voice which cannot be ignored.Thank you Lisa for creting this opportunity and for being a true patriot.
Let the sheep follow. I refuse. I will be there
One day I will be able to tell my grandchildren and great grandchildren that we the people stood up agains we the government. This tea party is the beginning of the new American Revolution. They will write about us in the history books.
Thanks so much for what you are doing. I am so proud to be an American. We should not be silent any longer.
Can I bring my torch and pitchfork? Enough is enough is enough.
I will be there with my fellow Freedom Fighters.
So many people have fought and died for this country,freedom does not come cheap its earned. We seemed to have forgotten the sacrifices made by past generations that have made this the greatest country in the world. Our service men & women are fighting to free other countries while ours is being dismanteled piece by piece. Our Government now thinks they are royalty and we are their drones who are expected to work pay taxes and not have minds of our own! They refer to us as "ordinary people". What they do not understand is we are far from ordinary history speaks for itself time & time again when our country has needed us we have always stepped up to the plate. We have given our blood our sweat & our tears to keep this country great not only for ourselves but for future generations to come. Its time again for us to step up to the plate our freedom our very happiness depends on it. We love you Lisa and are so proud of you our "dreamer and doer". Dad & Mom
Thank you so much for organizing this event. My family and I will be there on the 21st to let our voices be heard! I want my children to witness responsible citizens of our great nation taking a stand for what is right. Our founding fathers created a checks and balance within our government and this tea party will be the first step to reclaiming some sense of balance!
Too bad we can't march to Lake Eola. Fellow Patriots it's contagious when it comes to defending our rights and freedom. There are power in numbers. Let's show our fellow countrymen what we are made of! Spread the Word!On-On Patriots, On-On
"All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to remain silent".Thank you Lisa, I will be there.
If the lord is willing and the creek don't rise.I will be there. I am also trying to get members of the American Party of Florida to join us all there.
I will be there with my hubby and my boys. Working on my sister and her hubby and 3 kids. I am asking around my neighbors as well. I suggest everyone who is travelling there decorate their cars in some way letting people know where they are going. Maybe red white blue w/ info about the tea party? Teabags on vehicles? Maybe we will get some followers to join on the day? Maybe make a sign to put on our cars right now advertising the tea party in our local areas. Not everyone will see this site, but we can advertise it in our area for a month prior to the march. Can't wait to be there! Will donate some to help. Remember folks, the founders pledged their fortunes and lives, can we do less? God Bless you all!
I am in Arizona. But there in spirit. Great job and hope to see this spread until there are tea parties all over the USA. unite to perserve our freedom!!
I'll mark my calendar and I'll be there. Already donated and I'll be there with my camera if you need someone to take some pictures....
FACT: The Boston Tea Party was mainly precipitated by what amounted to a corporate tax cut.Colonists, disgusted by the Stamp Act and other oppressive British legislation, organized a boycott of the world's first mega-corporation: the British East India Company.In order to ameliorate financial losses caused by the boycott, Parlaiment passed the Tea Act of 1773, which significantly reduced the taxes/duty on tea sold by the East India Company, thus allowing this mega-corporation to sell directly to the colonies and to significantly undercut independent prices offered by smaller colonial tea companies.And so the famous Boston Tea Party was organized.This "uprising", ostensibly to protest helping middle and working class homeowners, is more closely in line with having a tea party -- in support of the British East India Company.Protest on, you community organizers you!
I'll be there.
G_d Bless you Lisa!It's time our "representatives" in Washington realized we surround them.Hopefully Jake will come, he might just learn something. Sorry Jake, but while I remember the Stamp Act was taking from middle and working class Colonists, I don't recall it then giving the rewards to irresponsible Colonists.
Awesome plan. I will organize a Southwest Florida Tea Party for the same day. Hopefully this will catch on in other cities and we can have a showdown with the governor and not let our cities become indebted to the Federal Government.
I'll be driving up from Tampa for this. The one in SW Florida is too far. Thanks for organizing!
I will be coming over from Brandon. I hope to fill my car. See you all there! Our voices will be heard!
This is great! If you're a FairTax supporter, don't forget to wear your shirt!!! I'll be there and I'll round up as many as I can!
This is long overdue, it's about time we remind our representatives they work for Us, not the other way around as they seem to think! I'll be there with a few friends!
Lisa,You're a true patriot! Thank you for letting Central Floridians speak out agains the horrendous hemorraging happening to the country by the fools in Washington! We should invite them to come so they can see just how poorly we are being represented. They need to stop this madness, end the income tax, end the war on poverty, stop the class warfare, kill about half the federal programs and departments, give states back their sovereignty, stop spying on us and abusing our civil liberties, bring us back to 2000 level spending (no so-called Fair-Tax needed), and let people be free from tyranny again.Yours in Liberty,Jeff"All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent. "--Thomas Jefferson
YES! LET"S DO IT! Obama is not even a legitimate president anyway!This is a dry run for the upcoming ONE HUNDRED MILLION MAN MARCH IN WASHINGTON! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Also I am a FAIR TAX SUPPORTER! This goes hand in hand with it considering the widespread financial fraud that we all call our current tax code. Someone should bring some materials for the FAIRTAX and make sure we get some publicity for that as well! I will look into materials but as a backup if someone else can bring some that would be great!
I have donated $50. to your cause. I will be at your rally. I am also letting most of "talk Radio" know of your event with hope that you get additional exposure from them and also with hope that they can urge other cities to have similar event on same day and same time. I am so with you.
I have never felt so strongly about a cause. Our family will be there. We are telling friends.
I am so excited to stand up and be counted with 1000's of other free minded Americans. I will be there and have sent to all my address book and facebook page. I'm believing for the biggest rally ever seen in Orlando. See you there, with flags flying.
I'm in. Hoping tens of thousands show up. It's a shame so many have no idea what's already happening...and it's barely been just one month and look where we are. Freedom vs. Slavery to the State...that's our choice. See you on March 21st.
My prayers are for a repentant America that invites God back to the forefront and in honoring Him, we will again be blessed by His goodness. He asks us to not just be hearers of His word, but doers...so here's our chance to make a difference. I have included an invitation for folks to join the Tea Party on this article, may it aide your efforts to make America a better place for everyone! Thanks for what you do! http://www.examiner.com/x-1106-Orlando-Christianity-Examiner~y2009m2d24-Orlando-Tea-Party
Our country is too great to fail and for those who truly care about our future it is vital that we stand up and make our voices heard. Thank you for providing us with a way in which we all can participate!
We must act now. I am in.
Why doesn't someone call the Neil Boortz and Sean Hannity shows and invite them. That would make the event REALLY BIG and perhaps capture some real media attention.
I live her in Arizona. I used to live in Florida and hate what our government has done to us. I will not be at the one in Orlando but will be at the one at Tempe Town Lake in Tempe, AZ when it takes place.
I will be there! Stop marxism. Stop comrade obama.
I have sent 20.00 dollars for the cause. I hope we can make our voices heard
We'll be joining you, and I am putting up posters about the event at our community clubhouses and will try to get the information into our March newsletter which goes to 1,000 homes. We must get rid of change that chains liberty loving people.It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people’s minds. — Samuel Adams
No people in history has ever spent themselves into prosperity!I'll be there!Don
I love it! We need to send a strong message across the fruited plain that this totalitarian administration is un-hopeful and non-transparent. WE THE PEOPLE! God bless America!
I am a relocted to Texas Floridian. I am very pround of what you are doing. I hope we can get the same thing started here in Texas. We need to be strong...as our forefathers were to fight for our freedom and push down this socialist uprising!
I've donated a small amount of money to help secure the venue and will drive down from Jacksonville. It's sad it has come to this and my loathing of most people in Washington, including our representatives from Florida.
Thank you Lisa, we need to start off with a rousing rendition of "God Bless America", Kate Smith style and then take these socialists to the woodshed. Our America was and still can be the place on this planet. Play a clip of Reagan as well. We need to rediscover the feeling of self control, not government control. It would not hurt to lash out at a few turncoats either. They need to know that we will not stand for anymore of their toying with the people.
We are in real danger of losing our civil liberties and constitutional protection as Americans. Sometimes I worry the powers that be are trying to crush the middle class financially in order to force us to submit to their will. These are scary times and we need to stand up, wake up, and take America back and make these clowns work for us instead of their financial contributors. God Bless, and thank you for all the hard work and dedication you have given to allow us to unite on this special day.
God Bless you Lisa. Thank you for making this effort and giving us hope!!!
Reading all of these replies gives me real hope that we can take back America from the Axis of Evil -- Obama (One Big Ass Mistake America), Reid and Pelosi.
I am excited about what you're doing and hopeful it will make a difference. If nothing else, we'll all feel better after a rousing venting session. But I propose this: We all say we want "something" done and that we're committed to this cause. If that's the case, stop suggesting that others do x or y for the cause and JUST DO IT! If not you, then who?
I've sent this link to my friends far and wide. I'm looking forward to this event. "Of small things are revolutions made."
This Pres. makes great speeches,and dose the opisite. So far he has fooled 40% of the country and 25% don't care. Organize and let,s try and change this
"let every American, every lover of liberty, every well wisher to his posterity swear by the blood of the revolution, never to violate in the least particular, the laws of the country and NEVER TOLERATE THIER VIOLATION BY OTHERS." " Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained for it is the only SAFEGUARD OF OUR LIBERTIES." "WE THE PEOPLE ARE THE RIGHTFUL MASTERS OF BOTH CONGRESS AND THE COURTS, not to overthrow the constitution but to OVERTHROW THE MEN WHO PERVERT THE CONSTITUTION." "I'ts not merely for today but FOR ALL TIME TO COME that we should perpetuate FOR OUR CHILDREN'S CHILDREN THIS GREAT AND FREE GOVERNMENT WHICH WE HAVE ENJOYED ALL OUR LIVES." ABRAHAM LINCOLN. We must listen to Abraham Lincoln's words. the government has overstepped i'ts bounds. We the people are the masters and the government is the servant. We must not let our country turn SOCIALIST/ MARXIST/COMMUNIST EVER>>> Mr.OBama and his team are trying to take our CONSTITUTION AWAY FROM US. THANK YOU ALL . I will be in Orlando for this and am telling as many people as I can. Everyone must dress in RED/WHITE/BLUE ONLY. THIS WILL SHOW WE ARE UNITED. SEE YOU ALL THERE. GOD BLESS AMERICA.
My cousin Patty sent me the email about this event. What a great idea! I am an event coordinator at a large facility so I know what a great undertaking this can be. Have you thought of getting sponsors? Good luck to you all!Everyone needs to remember that the Preamble to the Constitution begins with "We the People". Louisville, KY
Thanks to all who are putting this together. It is time that responsible citizens are heard. We will take back America.
Thank You from the bottom of my Heart. It is time we "Take Our Country Back" I just got off the phone with a Lawyer who was going to help me ghet Disability. After he found out I was self employeed most of my life he said "You Can't Get Any Help From the Government" but a lady I know has only been in this Country two years and get's $3500.00 a month & Food Stamps and aint ever paid in one penny. This is what is wrong today & I'm not the only one sick off it. I will be there.Thanks & GOD Bless You & GOD Bless America,Bubba
Way to go Lisa!I will be there
Many here have already said so but, once again THANK YOU for getting this organized...see all there
I'll be there! We need to make the voices of hard working TAX PAYING Americans heard. ENOUGH!!
United Americans. That is who will save this country. Get out and talk to those in your community. Talk about American principles and values. Learn everything you can about Obama, his cabinet, and his policies. Be able to articulate to others in your community what is at risk and how we change it.
My husband and I will be there. You should make a facebook group. It would help spread the word.
Everyone needs to invite or Demand that Charlie Christ,Bob Martinez,Bill Nelson and All Florida Represenitives be in Orlando. We have to DEMAND that they claim Florida a Sovereign state as the tenth amendment allows. We have to let them know they are servents of the people not Washington. It will be interesting to see if any of these people show their face. Great job Lisa we are all behind your efforts. Now lets contact these people and hold them accountable. see you in Orlando.
I cant wait, this is what we need! Thank You
I can't take it any longer..........I am in!!!
I'm looking forward to being part of making a statement, We the People need to be heard.
Notified everyone in my address book, we will be there with our FairTax paddles.
I'm letting my friends know and I've invited a ton of people on Facebook to join the group! We need to get Bud to announce the Facebook group over the radio. The Internet will spread the cause like wildfire, it just takes a little promotion to get it started! Thanks Lisa for heading this up. I've wanted to do something to get Washington's attention for a long time! We definitely need media coverage too! It's time the government recognized it's BY THE PEOPLE and FOR THE PEOPLE, not the party!
thanks lisa for all you are doing, will do my best to spread the word and bring as many people as possible on 3/21/09.
I AM NOT ABLE TO ATTEND, BUT KNOW THAT I AM WITH YOU 100 PER CENT. I BELIEVE WITH SPENCER---BY AND FOR THE PEOPLE, THAT IS WAY IT WAS WRITTEN..THANK YOU LISA
Fantastic! I have already emailed you to donate some banners if you need them. I am sick of politicians wasting OUR money!
I'll bring as many people as I can. WE THE PEOPLE can restore this country. I'll see all of you there!
"The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money." (Unknown, but attributed to Margaret Thatcher)
I am sick and tired of our new goverment wasting our money. I will be there.
We all need to support the tea party that is going on tomorrow (2/27) as well. It is also at Lake Eola. The sponsors of that event are also promoting this one so let's return the favor by being there!
This needs to be laid at the feet of all of the congress.
Lisa, You're doing a great job. Many people avoid doing business over the internet but would like to make a contribution. Will the Budman accept checks for the Tea Party or will there be a P.O. Box. Keep up the good work. Mike C
I am awake now, sleeper activated.2 x Iraq War Vets inbound hot to this location on 21MAR09.DON'T TREAD ON ME.This shit is really pissing me off. Never felt like this before...
I will be there for sure and my goal is to bring 100 people with me.Thanks for taking a stand.
I hope everybody shows up, I am 3 hours south and wish I could go. But I did my part by sending $100 to Ron Paul. Thanks for the rally.
Yes, we'll be there and have made a donation to a wonderful, long-awaited cause. Thanks for the opportunity to finally say, "No, we won't".
I will be there. I sent the following email to everyone I know. Please copy and paste and pass on.As most of you may know, Democrats and Three Republicans, voted to spend more money than has ever been spent before… $800 billion dollars. To put this into perspective, it is the same as spending over a million dollars every day since the day Jesus was born. The argument by the Democrats is that this will stimulate the economy. Of the $800 billion dollars in the bill only about $160 billion is actual stimulus. The remaining $640 billion is for special interest projects that will not stimulate the economy at all. Here is a small example as to what is in this bill:1. $30 million dollars to save the harvest mouse in the San Francisco Bay area.2. $600 millionfor new government cars.3. $252 billion is for income-transfer payments – these are not investments that help everyone, but cash or benefits to individuals for doing nothing at all like earned income credit for people who don't pay income tax.4. $150 million for The Smithsonian.5. $50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts.6. $400 million for global-warming research.7. $2.4 billion for carbon-capture demonstration projects.8. $650 million to pay for digital TV conversion coupons. This is just a small example and doesn’t include the millions of dollars in this bill for dog parks, Frisbee Golf course or fish hatcheries. In other words, these are things that will not create jobs or stimulate the economy. Obama promised a tax cut for 95% of Americans. Since only about 60% of Americans pay taxes that means that 35% of Americans who don’t pay taxes will get money. (see #3 above). Obama says that this money will be paid back by the top 2% of the nations wage earners. The problem with that theory is that even if you took 100% of the income over the timeframe that Obama proposes for the payback, there isn’t enough money. The tax cuts that everyone has to look forward to is about $13 per family per week this year and $8 next year. While campaigning, Obama promised that he would CREATE 4 million jobs. Today he says that this stimulus, or as I like to call it sin-to-us, will CREATE OR SAVE 3 to 4 million jobs. The problem with this argument is a saved job can never be statistically proven. 4 years from now, when trying to seduce America to reelect him he can say, “It’s a good thing we did that stimulus because even though we lost over 5 million jobs, with this stimulus, we saved 5 million jobs”. His rhetoric put him in a no lose situation. So after all this information, here is the reason for this letter. This is America! We are not slaves to what the elected leaders dictate. If we don’t like it then we have a right and a responsibility to stand up and to be heard. People forget, too easily, that “We, the people” formed this government and that we are a government, “by the people and for the people”. You are the government! You have a voice! Sure, you are just one voice, buy put together with 5 or 10 people you know and 5 or 10 people they know and spread throughout the nation we are a formidable force that cannot and will not be ignored. Here are the reactions that this letter will get. 1. Who wrote this letter? What a loon, there is nothing that can be done.2. Great letter! You go get them and let me know how that works out for you.3. We can’t make a difference, so why bother?4. I wish I could do something, but I don’t have time.5. We need to give Obama a chance to see if this thing works. Here is the problem with the last one. The Democrats and Obama claim to have a plethora of economist that agrees with them about the stimulus. Here are the facts. Most economist know this won’t work and hundreds of economist took out a full page ad in various newspapers who stood up and let the President know that this won’t work. Let history be your guide. Obama has been reading a lot about Franklin D. Roosevelt. It was once believe that his spending policies got us out of the great depression of 1929 that lasted until the start of WWII…over 10 years. What people never hear about is the depression of 1920. Why? Because in 1920, nothing was done except some tax cuts and in less than 2 years it was over. In 1960 Kennedy inherited a recession and cut taxes. Guess what? It worked. Obama says that this is the worst recession since the great depression. His confusion with history is no surprise since he referred to our 57 states, 10,000 people who died in the recent tornados, (it was 12 people), and most recently saying that we need to help the American car companies since this is the country that invented the car. (It was Karl Benz in Germany). However,
Go get them Lisa,This country needs take a history course on how we became the greatest power in the world. We are a republic founded on democratic institutions. We better wake-up before we become another quasi European socialistic country.
Great post Guy Kerr, What obout the 4.2 Million to Acorn, this group was supposed to be accused of VOTER FRAUD....I don't want my tax dollars going to them do you? Hard working Americans needs to tell how are money is spent, we would not waste this much money on down right stupid things. I used to work in a grocery store and you wouldn't believe how many people have in the past abused the food stamp system. I am talking about eleaborate wedding cakes, steaks, they ate better than me, and you and I and the rest of hard working American are paying for their parties.It's one thing to use it if you truly need it, but not to abuse it.
At best, Virtue will slumber. I dread the depravity of human nature. I wish to guard against it, by proper checks, and trust nothing to accident or chance. I will never depend on so slender a protection as the possibility of being represented by virtuous men.-Patrick Henry (Speaking to the Continental Congress on the need to include the Bill of Rights into the Constitution, to establish that certain rights were granted to men by God, and that government may not impinge upon these unalienable rights. Government has no right to confer them upon the people, because they have been innate from our creation. Government only has the rights which the people choose to confer up it, not the other way around.) The deterioration of every government begins with the decay of principles on which it was founded.-MontesquieuGood governance is more than a right, it is a responsibility, that if the individual fails to exercise will ultimately result in tyrany, under whose boot we have placed our own heads. We can neither ignore nor tolerate the infringements that are daily taking place upon our guaranteed and God given rights. If we fail to act upon our responsibilities, we will deserve what we get. Exercise Your Rights and Responsibilities.Remember that while the obverse of the coined Americanism is, "United We Stand," the reverse is "Divided We Fall." It is time to stand together.-Jeremy
600 million for new cars, I say let them drive clunkers. 30 million to save a mouse, when us taxpayers spend that much to get rid of them. I could go on. This government is a disgrace to the American people.
Jim,your comment reminded me of a quote by Winston Churchill."We contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle."- Winston ChurchillHmm. Sounds like what we've been doing.
600 million could get the homeless off the street and give them a new start and if we quit outsourcing jobs these people can sleep in a bed again and have a job to go to. Next time you go shopping see how many things you can find that says made in America. I usde to have Direct T.V. called customer service one night and reached some customer service in another country I could not even understand them. Needless to say I immediatley canceled and went with another provider. We have to give the jobs back to the American people. WE THE PEOPLE need to boycott any company that outsources jobs. That will get them in their pocketbooks, because that is their motivation. Remember you cannot be a slave of two masters. We must make a stand and get back this great country God has blessed. We are in serious trouble if we don't. We must stand up for what is right. see you all in Orlando and hope to meet all of you. thanks again Lisa, your parents bust be very proud of you, and be proud of yourself. WE ARE .....You go Girl!!!!
We are turning into Bagdad. Next they will start to putting up statues of Barack Hussain. At taxpayer blood sweat and tears. Get the picture. We must unite and say enough. We lost too many of our great Americans to get rid of that way of life. I'll be there. Thanks for all the inspiring posts, alot of you hit a nerve. Thank you fellow Floridians and Great Americans.
Plan on us being there. We will pass this on to other like-minded folks...and there are plenty.We are also starting a website to post Alan Grayson’s big spending ways...and his other naughty votes.
WE are the ones with natural rights that we LOAN to the Government. No taxation without representation, but right now the interests of the American people are being subordinated to the sociological theories of crackpot peabrain intellectuals in Washington.
Thanks Lisa, I added this as an event on Facebook. Lets continue to tell others about the event. There are so many people who agree with us but are too busy WORKING and PAYING TAXES to stay up to date on everything. Let's let them know when and where as we stand together for our future and the future of ALL Americans.
Socialism works great...until you run out of other people's money. Thanks, Prime Minister Thatcher for that simple truth. Too bad the suits locally and nationally just don't get it. Step out of your bubble guys and gals, take a roadtrip across America to see how 'real' Americans live. Better yet, come on down to Lake Eola on the 21st of March...not in your taxpayer limos...and come face to face with your constituents. We'll be there...will you? God Bless you Lisa...
Here's hoping the tea party is only the start. Here's a revolutionary idea... What if American taxpayers pledge to not file income taxes next year? If only a fraction of 155.2 million people in the labor force committed themselves to the idea, the Infernal Revenue Service and its evil twin, the Federal Reserve would wither and die the deaths they deserve. We need modern-day Jeffersons, Adamses and Madisons to heed to the call. No taxation without REAL representation.
Count me in!!!! I hope everyone who can donate financially will help out as I have.Thanks for taking the initiative!
What Could You Do with $787 Billion...1. If you split it up and gave it to every man, woman and child in the United States, everyone would get about twenty-six hundred bucks.2. The United State Census estimates the current population of the US to be about 305,862,000. A conservative estimate of the number of people living in the US illegally is around 11 million. So if you excluded them, even legal residents (and their children) would get another $100 each for a grand pay out of $2,700 for everyone in America legally. 3. If US Census figures are credible, then close to 230 million people are of voting age. So if we don't give the kids a big allowance check then all grown ups would be about $3,400 richer. 4. If we sent an even share of the $787 billion to every household in the United States, then look in your mailbox for a $7,100 check.5. We could just split the money with all working people. After all, it rightfully belongs to them. All workers (even those on unemployment) would get a check for a little over five grand. 5. We could really help out those with low to middle incomes and give the money to households making less than $50,000 per year. 77 million households would get a big fat $10,200 bonus.6. Parents really need a break in these hard times. If we sent a check to every household with children under 18, then parents could go deposit about $22,400 in the bank. That would be change I could believe in.7. Or, we could do what it looks like we are going to do - waste it all. Pouring capital into this socialist scheme seems like an oxymoron to me. To those who think the Star Spangled Banner is hard to sing, guess what? The Internationale is no piece of cake either.
Wow, what a great event! Unfortunately, my family will be unable to attend on the 21st. However, we would love to assist in any way we can to get the word out and to help in donations (what little we can spare). Please let us know if there are any other ways we can assist and make this event a complete success.Also, we would like to become more involved in patriotic/libertarian groups and organizations.
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You....now we know for sure we are not alone.... Let's just pray to God we can take back this Beautiful and Wonderful country of ours. We will pass the word for the Tea Party on March 21, 2009 at Lake Eola Fl.SEE YOU THERE. BRING LOTS OF FRIENDS AND TRUE AMERICANS !!!
This is an answer to my prayer and frustrations! Thank you, thank you, thank you....and AMERICA will thank us all for standing up to this madness! I've spoken with many and I know we are a silent majority. I would encourage us all to advertise any way we can. I am writing on the back car window...www.OrlandoTeaParty.com March 21st @ Lake Eola. Hope many will do the same... Invite the news media and make meaningful signs expressing our deep concerns about the perilous direction our country is heading. I want to continue living in the great United States of America, NOT the United SOCIALIST States of America!! STOP THE B.O.(stinkin') MADNESS! He is an 'empty suit'...better he take his telepromted rhetoric to hollywood than to continue blowing his flowery speeches up our >>>! The campaigning is over....get to work and quit spending taxpayer money spanning the nation doing the only thing you seem to know how to do....giving COOLAID speeches! We need substance!!
I Will be there!! I will tell as many friends as I can! God bless America
Lisa, I heard you today (Fri 2/27) on Bud's show. I immediately started making plans to attend. So, I'll be coming from Brevard County (Viera) with my wife and 7 year old son. I haven't been to an event at Lake Eola since Shannon Burke and 540 WFLA had a Rally For The Troops event back in 2003. Thanks Lisa for stepping up to the plate and making this happen! It's going to be awesome to be in the company of thousands of people with the common desires of turning back Socialism, restoring free market principles and fiscal responsibility, lowering taxes, and promoting freedom and liberty!
We're coming in from Jacksonville and look forward to taking back our country and our rights!!!! Thanks to everyone who have made this possible... let's let a few congress and senators know what "JOBLESS" is all about, taxed into proverty and wait in a medical office for minimal care when their sick. We have the power in 2010!
I'll be comming from Georgia, and I hope that we can stand up for freedom, stop tyrany and if necessary; do what ever it takes to refresh the 'tree of liberty'....
Thanks Lisa and everybody else that has left a comment. I thought the american dream was dead, but I can see it is still as strong as ever and has given me hope. I will be there and hopefully some friends.
Lisa,How thankful we are for your willingness to do this work. We are available to help in any way we can.Patti has taught college level America's Christian History and Government. We have been precinct committee people for the Republican Party in the past and involved in Seminole cty. politics. We feel we have no party that represents us any longer. We are lovers of our country.
Driving from Vero Beach. I'll be there. I'm planning to carry a large placard captioned:"I'm fighting for her!!!" and below it a large picture of my beautiful two-year-old granddaughter.
everyone check out declaration of treason at oilforimmigration.org. we need to request the resignation of all our Florida officials. They have breached their oath of office, to protect and defend the constitution. By breaching the Law of our land,our constitution what right do they have to hold office? Does anyone know what Barack Obama/Barry Soetoro/Barry Dunham ect. He has gone by several names What is his legal name??? Why has this man gone to such great lengths to seal all records about him. We have been scammed. Do we not have the right to know who this man is? Our Florida officials do not care about the people of Florida that is clear. If you cant do the time don't do the crime. Until this man produces his birth certificate he has to be considered as an enemy. Therefore so are the officials of Florida.Remember the Oath of office to protect and defend from enemys forgien and domestic. We the People must protect our constitution and prosecute the officials for stepping on it. Obamas "change" and "yes we can" is this<< Yes we can change the constitution. We the hard working taxpayers are what Washington calls "useful idiots". These people are not above the Constitution. We must demand that the laws of our constitution are followed.
My whole family plans on being there!!! Then we need to march on Washington. Everyone needs to start calling/emailing their talk radio hosts about these events!! Also email your congressman and tell them to come too! You know Rush, Hannity, Bortz, etc. will love to cover this!!
It's time to take back our country before it's too late.
will come from tampa.
We're in DeLand and I will be bringing my sister and will tell everyone I know about this. I am so excited to have an opportunity to express my love of country along with so many others who feel the same way! I'll put it on my FaceBook as well.
Great ideas, will support, let's make bumper stickers. www.orlandoteaparty.com to get the word out, this could be the start of something really big, what if...july 4th even more americans show up in D.C. that were there on Jan. 20th...just a thought...
We have to do something quick!! My family and I will be there!!!
I did not serve in the military and it has always been a big regret. Thanks for giving me a another chance to fight for my country!!! Stop Obamunism!!!
Will be there "with bells on"! LIBERTY BELLS! Emailing and bringing many others to this event for which we've all been awaiting..."Let Freedom Ring"!!!!Barbara Farrell
We'll be there!
NOW is the time for all good men (and women) to come to the aid of their country!
Time to send a message to Washington. We need term limits and we need them fast. Our elected officials are aragant and think we are ignorant. Let's make this a clear signal of real change.
We will we driving up from Miami for the Tea Party.We are looking forward to it and will tell as manypeople as we can to join us
The american republic will stand until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the publics money Alexis DeTocueville
I found this site through the Michelle Malkin website. I am very pleased there will be a Rally on the 21st in Orlando. A chance to express our Patriotic opposition to Obamanomics and the expansion of the Fed Government will be a pleasure in which to participate.I plan on bringing as many of my Patriotic American friends as possible.
"In order to form a hypothesis about the future of an individual, one must consider three elements: his present course of action, his concious convictions, and his sense of life. the same elements must be considered in forming a hypothesis about the future of a nation."A sense of life is a pre-conceptual equivalent of metaphysics. An emotional, subconciously integrated appraisal of man and of existence. It represents an individual's unidentified philosophy; it affects his choice of values and his emotional responses, influences his actions, and, frequently, clashes with his concious convictions."A nation, like an individual, has a sense of life, which is expressed not in its formal culture, but in its "life style" - in the kind of actions and attitudes which people take for granted and believe to be self-evident..."A nations political trends are the equivalent of a man's course of action and are determined by it's culture. A nation's culture is the equivalent of a man's concious convictions. Just as an individual's sense of life can clash with his concious convictions, hampering or defeating his actions, so a nation's sense of life can clash with its culture, hampering or defeating its political course. Just as an individual's sense of life can be better or worse than his concious convictions, so can a nation's. And just as an individual who has never translated his sense of life into a concious convictions is in terrible danger - no matter how good his subconcious values - so is a nation."This is the position of America today." - Ayn Rand from "Dont Let It Go" in "Philosophy: Who Needs It"; 1971
As a veteran I am proud to serve my country again. My wife and I will be there. The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.-Thomas Jefferson-
Thank you , Lisa, for spearheading this event. I suspect we will need more but this is an excellent beginning.I have copied the details and am giving it to our employees and friends. We have made a donation and ordered T Shirts. Will there be speakers? I read in the Kansas City Tea Party report that 200 people came out in a snow storm but they had no speakers. They are planning their second one with speakers. It would be nice if we could get a list of the issues we wish "to make very clear" to the President.= as he has so audaciously said to us - "let me make myself perfectly clear" Hopefully, many more creative and effective ideas will spring from this event. Our government works for us and we are tired of working for those who do not want to work.
We need more than a peaceful protest we need to organize an army and wipe out those crooks and restructure. a REVOLUTION is needed
I will be there! I advise everyone to park in the same parking garage as I do for the arts and crafts festivals. It's a flat $5 to park and you won't have to worry about getting towed! It's close to the bandshell, at the corner of Robinson and Rosiland, right behind the Metro Fitness gym. I'm going to arrive at about 11am to get a good seat! See you all there!!!
It sound like to me that Obama is selling our freedom and libirty over seas with Hillary out in China selling America Bonds. I am tired all the internet talking it is time for action
I am only 13, but i'll still invite all of my conservative friends that might be interested and their families. I think it is awesome that your doing this!
I will be there - and hopefully some of my friends. Thank you so much!
I am sending and am asking any one who has a moment to forward the event info to every media outlet you can. This is how to spread the word. Start a revolution.........
I am a Veteran of the United States Army, and I intend to keep the oath that I took to defend The Constitution of The United States against all enemies foreign or domestic. We must stand up and let the elected leaders of our country that they must respect and obey the Constitution of The United States of America. I hope also that the Supreme Court is willing to do their part and review the Stimulus Bill for any unconstitutional content.
We will be there. I am bringing about a dozen great Americans with me!Let's take our country back!This is supposed to be the land of opportunity not the land of equal results!
I just sent the following letter with a tea bag to my House Rep and both Senators. At the top of the letter I included a pic of a Minuteman with a tea bag...Dear Rep. ___________,Many Central Floridians, including myself, are sick and tired of the mortgage bailouts, bank bailouts, auto manufacturer bailouts, wasteful spending, earmarks, pork, and socialization of America. You and others in Congress are mortgaging my future… my children’s future… my grandchildren’s future. You and others in Congress are increasing our debt to foreign nations… some of which may not be all that friendly in the future… especially when the bill comes due. You and others in Congress are printing money like never before in American history… which shall lead to inflation. The Republicans squandered our national wealth by spending like drunken sailors. The Democrats have now anteed up on the Republicans and are spending like drunken sailors with a heroin IV in the arm. We, the Citizens of America, have had it. We are leading a peaceful revolution to turn this ship around. Our cry is “Repeal or Retire!” By 2010, you and the others in Congress will do one or the other. Please make an effort to be with us on 3/21/09 at The Amphitheater @ Lake Eola (Orlando) from Noon until 2PM. We will be conducting the first official “Orlando Tea Party”. We are growing in power and the growth crosses party lines. I believe that it is in your interest to be present. Please use the enclosed teabag to enjoy a cup tea on me… the revolution starts now!Respectfully,
Those of us that love this Country will not tolerate it being turned into a socialist welfare state. It is time to let our voices roar and echo in the halls of government. It is We The People, not, We The Cattle.
Sorry we can't be there but we agree with you 100%. Frank & Eve Virginia
My fellow Floridians and Americans, How can Senators Martinez and Nelson or any other congressional employees of WE THE PEOPLE tolerate 9,000 earmarks totalling 7.7 BILLION. 1.8 MILLION "that stinks" for swine control, 200,000 for tatoo removal,30 MILLION fo a mouse. This is insane. We must demand All their resignations. They should pass go and go directly to jail. Perhaps Nancy Polsie and the female elected officials should be sent to Alcatraz, then they can see their 30 Million dollar mouse. The Men can be sent to Guantanamo Bay. If you listen to Obama speaches he uses the word Crisis over & over & over again. 28 times in one speech. The REAL CRISIS IS THAT HE IS IN OFFICE and is trying to bring America to her knees. The only way to get out of this mess is to give these people the BOOT. Let them see what the meaning of the words UNEMPLOYEED, HOMELESS, FORECLOSURE,REPOSSED,HUNGER mean.We could sell all their homes,cars and possessions and apply that back to the people. I would rather my tax dollars go to Alcatraz for bread and butter only. If I was this irresponsible at my job I would be FIRED.Period. These people are EMPLOYEED BY WE THE PEOPLE. So as Donald Trump would say" YOU'RE FIRED". See you all in Orlando. we will make a difference.

It is absurd what this Obama administration and his Democratic Congress is doing to our great country! I live in Washington state but I will be there with you in spirit. God bless you all.
An idea for those who intend to show up at the event:Come with your video cameras and do random man-on-the-street interviews with the folks who show up. Ask them why they're there, what they would like to tell congress, how they intend to vote in 2010, etc. Now if we could designate a YouTube handler to piece it all together and put out a 1-2 minute video, that would be sweet.
I am a former Viet Nam Vet, Former Republican Party Executive Committee County Chairman. I have developed several perspectives amd soultions to our current situation I would love to talk to you about them. If after reading what I have sent you, if you feel it has merit, I would love to be considered as a speaker at the "Tea Party". One of the articles I and sending you is called; "One if By Land Two if By Sea". Remember after the Tea Party, then came the revolution. I have given much thought to our circumstances and I do have solutions. I am sending three letters (see below), I hope to hear from you soon.Respetfully,Phil Longo352-568-0321How We Got HereBy Phillip J. LongoFirst I would like to put several stakes in the ground. First stake, we are a country of consumers, if we do not consume, we will wither and die. We are a capitalist country. That is, we have a system that was primarily designed to allow a family to generate income from their work. Initially and ideally there is enough income to be used to pay for a family’s NEEDS, SAVE some money in the bank and have some left over for their WANTS.As a society we cannot survive if we only have enough income to pay for our needs. We must have enough income after we pay for our NEEDS to CONSUME the things we WANT. After all, how many shoes do you really need? How many TV’s do you really need? How many DVD’s do you really need? How much variety in food do you really need? And still have money left over at the end of the day to put some in the bank. This has been clearly demonstrated with the spike in fuel cost. The American people stopped consuming what the WANTED to pay for what they NEEDED.Right now the concern is JOBS, what can we do to put the people back to work and reduce unemployment? If there is no demand (CONSUMPTION) there is no production if there is no production there are no jobs. Without DESRETIONARY INCOME there is not enough CONSUMPTION to keep our people employed. It really is just that simple. It is clear to me that we should be looking at ways to help our families increase their DECRETIONARY INCOME.This problem did not happen overnight. It started at the turn of the century and it is due to human nature and the mismanagement of our country’s business (government) and over time the perversion of the Constitution by our elected representatives, both of which can be corrected.So, what has eroded our DECRETIONARY INCOME? First and foremost, TAXES! Second…..Home Loans…..Third Transportation cost….. Energy and last health care. All these things we can address in innovative and meaningful ways without borrowing and putting our country in further debt and at the same time provide significant stimulation to the economy. To give some perspective, in 1913 50% of the employees in America made less than $800.00 per year. Average income was about $15,000.00 per year the population was 97,225,000. 1913 was the year congress started income tax. The rate was 3% to a top marginal rate of 7%. Income tax collected in 1913 was equal to $.73 per capita. The only expenses families had 1n 1913 was; food, clothing & shelter for the most part. Henry Ford built his first Model T car in 1908 and opened up his assembling line in 1913. Therefore not many people had cars back at the turn of the century. Basically, after food, clothing & shelter in the form of rent or mortgage everything else was discretionary income. It wasn’t until 1919 the RCA mass produced radios of home use. Today however it is a different story. We have a population of 301,139,947 people and the income tax collected is equal to $8,534.00 per capita. Now let’s look at our families expenses today; Food, Clothing, Shelter with that shelter comes (insurance, garbage pick-up, water, electricity), Appliances (TV, Radio, VCR / VCR Tapes, DVD players / DVD Movies, MP3’s, Toaster/Toaster ovens, Coffee makers, Ovens, Refrigerators, Computer, virus protection, flash drives, software, phone, fax, cell phone, healthcare insurance, mortgage insurance, life insurance, auto insurance, and then there is the automobile, not just one but two or three per family-oil, gas, tires, tune-ups. Our government has increased our taxes without giving consideration to the fact that our population has grown, (more contributors), inflation has grown, (same percent gives a high payout). Let me demonstrate: realtors get a 7% commission on the sale of a home, it has been that way since commissions have been paid on the sales of homes. If, in 1913 a home sold for $1,000.00 the commission at 7% would be $70.00. If that same home sold today for $250,000.00, the commission would be $17,500.00. The percentage did not change but the price of the house did. Let me ask you a question, what has happened to our incomes and our population since 1913? Income tax collect
I am really looking forward to this event. I am hoping to recruit a number of friends.
Thank you for organizing this. I will be there and will bring as many people as I can.
Its time to STOP being the SILENT MAJORITY. Lets take OUR country back. Lets return to the Christian values that we're built on !!
Stand together America and let us tell the hypocrits in DC that we want America back!!! Go Lisa, Bud, Marcus and all real American's! God gave us a Saviour, now we need a President.
This government is taking a socialist turn, and if we are to save America, then we must act NOW. We are no longer silent, and we WILL act to save this nation. Barack Obama, and the rest of the socialist pigs in Washington: We will make sure you fail.
I'm bring my family an about 50 of my friends from Lakeland, Fl
I will be there too! ... and blogging about it as well with camera in tow.We have to do this!
Wow this is motivating. This is what we need!!!! I encourage everyone to view this and spread it like wild fire!!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R227Mho8Ymc
In video look how they CAME UP WITH THE STIMILUS NUMBER OF 787 BILLION>> IT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND!!
Here's the view of a foreign New station...This is verygood info as well.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AxzjkbrZxxU&feature=related
Finally someone is taking a stand. God forbid our politicians stand up for our rights! We're onboard with you guys for the 21st and beyond.
OMG MACS RIGHT YOU HAVE TO WATCH THIS VIDEO ABOUT OBAMAhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R227Mho8Ymc
I'm fired up and can't wait to be a part of the Orlando Tea Party!!! Can't wait to meet you. Joyce, Deltona
I just wanted to say thank you to Lisa, Shelly and everyone else involved in getting this rally going. Kudos to you. We need to do something to get his nation back to the United States Of America we all love. Just a small suggestion, mabye you could put a page on the website that has items you may need to make sure this event goes smoothly. Things such as audio equipment, food, drinks, etc. Those might be good contributions for the Americans that may not be able to donate financially. Just a thought. Thanks again to all that has made this happen.
I am sick and tired of this administration taking us ever leftward to the morass of socialism. It's about time that we demonstrate our commitment to the principles set forth by our founding Fathers that ensured that we enjoy the fruits of our labors without the malignant scourge of hyper-taxation, as well as the divine gifts of life, liberty and the the pursuit of happiness.
My family and I plan on being there and I can offer transportation to a few if needed from Tampa or the general area. You go girl!
Will be there with family in tow!Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of resistance. ~Woodrow Wilson
Can't be there but I donated to Grass Roots. We have to remember "United We Stand Divided We Fall." We can take this country back.
I am Director, Florida, America Coast 2 Coast, a new non-profit dedicated to restoring the ideals of our founding fathers.This is a fantastic event! Thank you so much for organizing.Lloyd is a member of our organization and we will be out in FORCE!
So after losing my retirement in the stack market, I get to make sure the UAW retires?
If the majority, which pays no taxes, elected Obama, then the rest of us can complain that taxation without representation is tyranny.
This is exciting and encouraging. Rush and Sean and the rest need to know they aren't the only ones bearing the load--in supporting freedom. Their follow Americans will unite to stand up for our rights and our ideals and for future generations. Thanks for organizing!
I'll be there! Let your wallet do your talking. Before Obama takes all your hard-earned money through increased taxes, make a donation to this worthy cause.
My Fellow Americans:"Ask not - what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country"This is no longer the mantra of the Democrats. Socialist/Communist Obama is intent on destroying this great nation. He must be stopped, as well as Pelosi and Reid. Enough is enough. I look forward to the tea party and will be recruiting all my associates to attend as well. It's time we take back this country from those who want to destroy it.
it only takes a spark to get a fire going... thx Lisa as a proud American we cant sit by and let these dumacrates ruin a perfectly great country! myself ,wife and 35 others will be there
I hope the media will be present for the event. The liberal-biased media helped Obama get into the white house by not reporting about the anti-socialism feelings of many of our well-educated American citizens. Unfortunately, the lack of fair and balanced reporting on their part caused the election to go in favor of the far left wing and now our economy is really screwed and will only get worse. I support this protest, and can only pray that it would not go unnoticed.
Here's another reason that everyone should attend I was just watching CNBC which was showing the budget hearings with Tim Geithner. He verified that there is a new tax in Obama's budget which MANADATES all employers to form 401Ks or IRAs for all their employees and remove a certain government determined percentage of their pay and place it in these accounts every paycheck. The goverment will be controlling our personal income. This affects every American and everyone needs to know about this ASAP. Why is Mr. Obama hiding this socialist policy from the American people? The president has totally crossed the line and every American needs to hear the truth. This is not a party issue but a personal invasion into everyone's personal affairs. My family will be there on March 21st. Thanks for oganizing this event.
I will be there it is the most important thing in america, we have had enough of the tax and spent idiots thinking we are going to be lulled to sleep day after day by these corrupt news media's and the lame brains in hollyweird ca. one hundred million person march on d.c.. sounds good to me. I hope we have enough people in orlando to shut it down and make our point !
It is time for American's to Wake UP! We must be informed on our Political Beliefs and the History of this country and what has made it great. If you don't know, go find out! That is what I see this event as. A meeting of like minded people who are aware of the danger we are in, and a place for us to share that with everyone who does not yet realize what is going on. We must return America to the principles of success. FREEDOM, LIBERTY, PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY. This is going to require a change in Local, County, State, and Federal Government. WAKE UP AMERICA! It's time for a REVOLUTION!!!
I encourage everyone to view this and spread it like wild fire!!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R227Mho8Ymc
The Florida Minuteman Civil Defense Corps will be there. Proud to stand with Great Patriots.Thanks Lisa.
We need to take back our country. RUSH FOR PRESIDENT!
I'll be there with bells on. Before you know it we'll be saying HEIL OBAMA.
by people not understanding us in how we got in this mess
Republicans hate free speech.
I plan on coming and bringing some friends. I want to thank you for the opportunity to join your organization. Mr. Limbaugh is so smart. I know that he is right about this. McCain would not act like Obama.
We are not Republicans, we are individuals with conservative values. And Cindy, hope to see you! Unfortunately, we are not a part of any organization, just a couple of Americans who want to protect our rights, our values and our country!God Bless!
Hell yes I'll be there. Since when did bundling earmarks into a bill with a 100 provisions become the American way?
We will be there with our 3 little ones. Because in the end, this is all for them and their future.We're inviting everyone we know. Thanks for organizing this!
Lisa:There are tens of millions of us. We need to become organized and ABSOLUTELY DEFIANT before it is too late. Our nation is now being sucked into the deadly vortex of fascist tyranny. Those who recognize this peril cannot ignore it; we must all work together to overcome it, or we will all perish together.When the iron boot of tyranny is upon you, there are only two choices: destroy those who wear it, or be crushed beneath it. Victory or slavery. As Benjamin Franklin told the other delegates after signing the Declaration of independence: "we must all hang together, or we will surely hang separately." NOW IS THE TIME WHEN ALL GOOD MEN MUST COME TO THE AID OF THEIR COUNTRY. By the way, we must be careful with our terminology. We do NOT need a revolution, which seeks to overthrow the duly-constituted system of government. Such an overthrow is already well underway. We need a RESTORATION MOVEMENT, which seeks to reinstate our legitimate, duly-constituted system of government under the U.S. Constitution. That is why I suggest that the ORLANDO TEA PARTY be subtitled "U.S. Constitution Restoration Rally". We desperately need to start holding regular patriotic meetings, where we can support each other and network face to face. The ORLANDO TEA PARTY is a great start! Above all, we need to depend upon God; without his aid, no victory is possible.May God bless you and your patriotic efforts."You have the highest of human trusts committed to your care. Providence has showered on this favored land blessings without number, and has chosen you as the guardians of freedom, to preserve it for the benefit of the human race. May He who holds in His hands the destiny of nations make you worthy of the favors He has bestowed, and may He enable you, with pure hearts and hands and SLEEPLESS VIGILANCE, to guard and defend to the end of time the great charge He has committed to your keeping." - Andrew Jackson
Mr. Baldwin wrote an excellent comment. I have sent the link for this site to everyone on my email list. Please, everyone do the same! Thanks Lisa for all your hard work. Scott.
Yes. We will be there. Thanks for the opportunity. Sick of seeing America controlled by political-party agendas instead of we, the people. Our country is suffocating and the taxpayers are broke simply because the Government decided it was best for them to cut, paste and ignore our Constitution!
I understand the concern. However if fellow Republicans analyzed this recent bill you will discover that less than 2% are earmarks. Read the bill, don't just listen to talk show hosts and failed bankers. You'll learn that much you are told is hype for party loyalty. Since the party has been disloyal to us, I have decided to research, research, research. I've learned that most of what our Republican "leaders" are telling us is exaggerated or distorted. Anyone going who is earning less than 250K?If so, I'm open to learning as to why?
Dan, We love the discourse, however, if you would like to present questions, please provide your email address so that people can contact you directly. We are not set up as a forum.Thank you!
Dan, you have been drinking too much obama kool-aid. This is about our Constitution & bill of rights. It is our right, our duty, to take a stand. It's about Obamas move toward socialism. We are a Republic of the people, by the people and for the people. What don't you get.
I will be there with my children. Thank you for organizing this. It is long overdue. Is there any other way to contribute other than pay pal?
hi! i had left a reply on feb 23rd letting you know that i would attend the tea party. now my family has agreed to come as well, so we'll be coming from jacksonville and high springs. i've also started to twitter about the tea party to get the word out. can't wait!!!
Picture this, the U.S. Constitution is scattered on the floor, here comes this person stepping and grinding his heels into it.WITH NO RESPECT AT ALL.That is what I feel has happened. We need to SAVE OUR CONSTITUTION. It is Great Americans that have commented on this site that will SAVE AMERICA. "IN GOD WE TRUST".
Dan, I realize this is not a forum, but I am one who makes less than 250,000 a year. I am going to the Tea Party for my children. I am protesting government out of control. A government who will be leaving a debt too big to repay. A government who will tax my children out of the quality of life that we have enjoyed. A government who thinks they have the right to deterimine who is rich and who isn't. A government who thinks they have the right to take the hard earned money of their citizens and give it to whoever they deem needs it more. A government who thinks capitalism does not work. A government who cannot see that they are the problem. Our Founders recognized that the moment the government is authorized to start leveling the material possesions of the rich in order to have an equal distrubution of goods, the government thereafter has the power to deprive ANY of the people their equal rights to enjoy thier lives, liberties and property. If you think you are safe at under 250,000 per year, think again. The government will redefine the defination of rich and you just might be their next target.
Heidi is the proprietor of a bar in Norfolk. Inorder to increase sales, she decides to allowher loyal customers - most of whom areunemployed alcoholics - to drink now but paylater. She keeps track of the drinks consumedon a ledger (thereby granting the customersloans).Word gets around and as a result increasingnumbers of customers flood into Heidi's bar.Taking advantage of her customers' freedomfrom immediate payment constraints, Heidiincreases her prices for wine and beer, themost-consumed beverages. Her sales volumeincreases…massively.A young and dynamic customer serviceconsultant at the local bank recognizes thesecustomer debts as valuable future assets andincreases Heidi's borrowing limit. He sees noreason for undue concern since he has thedebts of the alcoholics as collateral.At the bank's corporate headquarters, expertbankers transform these customer assets intoDRINKBONDS, ALKBONDS andPUKEBONDS. These securities are thentraded on markets worldwide. No one reallyunderstands what these abbreviations meanand how the securities are guaranteed.Nevertheless, as their prices continuouslyclimb, the securities become top-selling items.One day, although the prices are still climbing,a risk manager of the bank, (subsequently ofcourse fired due his negativity), decides thatslowly the time has come to demand paymentof the debts incurred by the drinkers at Heidi'sbar. However they cannot pay back the debtsand Heidi cannot fulfill her loan obligations andclaims bankruptcyDRINKBOND and ALKBOND drop in price by95 %. PUKEBOND performs better, stabilizingin price after dropping by 80 %.The suppliers of Heidi's bar, having grantedher generous payment due dates and havinginvested in the securities are faced with a newsituation. Her wine supplier claims bankruptcy,her beer supplier is taken over by a competitor.The bank is saved by the Governmentfollowing dramatic round-the-clockconsultations by leaders from the governingpolitical parties.The funds required for thispurpose are obtained by a tax levied on thenon-drinkers.Finally an explanation I understand...
Thank you SO much for putting this rally together!! Finally, an avenue to voice our concerns and stand together in unity for "We the People" NOT we the government. My entire family will be there and I am telling everyone I know. God bless you,Sheryl Jensen
I will be there with my teenager son. Thank you for getting all of us togheter. United we can, and as an organized comunity we can fight back to a comunity orginazer.
I will be in North Carolina on the 21st but with you in spirit. I'm making a donation to help with expenses and passing on the word to everyone in Florida that I know! God Bless!
FINALLY! The silent Majority WILL BE HEARD!!! It is time for us to march and it is time for us to speak. We have been silent too long. Thank you is not enough for how I feel about this tea party. I grew up in a socialist country and I know exactly what its like. We DO NOT Want to go there America. Let's stand up for our rights and tell Washington to take a hike.LOLGod Bless
I will be there and bringing friends! Events like these are great, we need to show our numbers and let our elected officials know we AREN'T GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPnJX_S3vmU
Right on Lynn couldn't of said it better if we tried! " Love your country but never trust your Government"....Robert A. Heinlein
Thank you for organizing this, Lisa and giving us opportunity to voice our extreme concern at the socialist leaning and out of control spending the federal government is wielding. We remember the integrity and vision of George Washington, and the men who pledged their lives, liberty, and sacred honor for the right to self-govern.
I've been wanting to demonstrate my disgust with Congress for a long time. They don't now and haven't for a long time earned the pay, benefits and pensions we pay them. Thank you for an opportunity to show them how we feel. I'll be there with bells on!
The Revolution started in Boston in 1776 then was revived in Chicago, Orlanso and other Cities in 2009. It nees to go all the way to Washington. It is time we should march on Washington with 2 million strong. Lets organize. I am mad as hell and am not going to take it any more.
We will be there. This is very important to let the leaders know how we feel about our great country. We don't want to lose our freedom
Be there or be square! See everyone on the 21st. God Bless America...
Thank you Lisa for your courage in stepping forward and organizing this much needed event. I have donated to this cause and I will be there with friends. We need to mobilize, stand-united and confront Washington as a force to be taken seriously. Thank you!
Thank you, I can't make the 21st in Orlando, when are you having another? In Jacksonville maybe? I am glad to see that others feel the need for action. I will donate to the cause.
Time for a 2nd revolution! Let's roll....
I truly hope the word gets out to everyone that at last our voices can be heard. This is exactly how the special interest groups get their voices heard, now it is our turn. We have to start locally to get results globally. Spread the word that is the key.
If ever a time should come ,when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seat in Government ,our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to provent its ruin. Samuel Adams
I loved Alan's analysis and breakdown of dividing up the $787 billion and giving it back to the taxpayers so that the free market could spend it as they saw fit. What a concept!!! The free market making the decisions of what companies should succeed and which should fail by voting with their wallets, instead of centralized government planning making the decision. Obama needs to look at that 1920 recession and how Coolidge handled it. As Obama seeks to demonize business he should instead understand Coolidge, who said among many other things that "Large profits mean large payrolls" and "Government can never relieve man of toil" I will be in Orlando in the 21st. I am enthralled that I am not alone in the feelings I have had since November.It is time for true Constitutionalist Americans to begin to take our country back from the "idle class"
I'm very excited about this event and will be there with friends and family. This is important! We are all here at this time and place for a reason. We must trust God that we are exactly where we are meant to be and must not let this great land that He has blessed us with get under the control of Big Government. Let's all stand United! God Bless America!
Right on ! Many thanks to Lisa-- you are a great American !!"If at 20, you are not a Liberal, you have no heart-If by 40, you are not a Conservative, you have no brain !"Sir Winston Churchill.
Headed right now to make a donation via paypal....Taking our country back is what so many americans want to do but just needed someone to unite our efforts..!! United we stand!!
I just received news of your event and have spread the word among my friends.I am coming with open ears and have thoughts I would like to share as well.I don't think you are going to have enough room for everyone.
I'm looking forward to the Tea Party! Thank goodness someone decided to organize this. Keep up the great work!!!!
I can't wait! Thank you for give us a chance to speak with a unified voice.
I just sent Senator Bill Nelson an invite to the Orlando Tea Party. I told him he could NOT speak, just listen. I doubt we will see the whites of his eyes.I'm bringing my grandchildren. They need to know how important it is to stand up for our country. We still have two weeks to get the word out. It's spreading like wildfire. See everyone there.....
I plan to clean up my street of litter and mail that trash to Washington.(Nanci Palosi)If everyone does this we can save the post office and get their attention.Just think of all that trash going to Washington.
This event is for not just Conservatives\Libertarians as it looks now that even some moderate Democrats are balking on the Obama\Pelosi Socialist agenda. Our kids are being taught in school and the media that 'Global Warming' is the biggest issue our country faces, when in fact our national debt and the socialism it is bringing needs to be communicated.
I served this country for 9 years and Im tired of all the BS, corruption, and lies. Something has to happen to make our government change.
I'm glad to see this event happening in Orlando. My wife and I are sick of the move towards big government and socialism and want to let those in power know we are fed up! We've posted the event on our web site and are spreading the word.www.CurrentMind.com
I havent' the words to express how grateful I am to Lisa and her family for spearheading this event. Thank you. I'll be there with my family and friends. It's time to take back our government from these left-leaning loons!
This is an outstanding event and coincides with a similar one (SAVE OUR NATION) being held in Jacksonville on Apr. 11th. Neal Boortz & Herman Caim will be among the speakers here. Go to www.fairtax.org to register to attend.An oxymoron: "our representatives". As a FairTax advocate and community coordinator I have witnessed the 'don't care' attitude of our representatives. Some even cosponsor the legislation to get us off their back but have no intention of supporting the bill (HR-25). We need to not reelect any representative for two elections to show them we the people have taken back our nation. Then they will know that if they do not provide honest representation, it is their last term in office.Can we do it? Yes we can!
The FairTax is the only viable way to get the corruption out of government. It is constructed to eliminate the openings that lobbyists can formulate loopholes to benefit special interests. Our elected representative reap tons on campaign contributions from tax lobbyists to support loopholes. The contributions virtually assure reelection. We need to break this cycle and get people of character and integrity in office.Visit www.fairtax.org for a better understanding of how the FairTax works. Visit our local FairTax supporters meeting on Mar 10th, 7PM at the Eastmonte Civic Center in Altamonte Springs.
I am looking foward to it. Me and my family will be there.
Obama must go. Obama's policies must fail. I will be at Lake Eola.Give us strength.
I am publicizing this everywhere I post and email. It is time to move forcefully, though peacefully, and to be heard above the din of MSM. It is with great hope that every city in every state will do likewise.
I am driving over from Tampa to join you. I am mad as hell and will do everything within my power not to loose our wonderful country to socialism without a fight!

21 Years of Air Force life insuring freedoms that are being taken away by leftists. It is our fault you know. We left radicals in the Rep. part to take control, then we elected a Republican controlled congress that was so bad that the Dems got to takeover.It has been proven that part of the global warming is caused by cow Flatulence so we can fix global warming. Just get rid of the BS and hot air in Washington.
Lisa,I'm coming to the Tea Party because we've got to start showing up somewhere & doing something, or we'll loose everything.A story:"My neighbor pulled up in the driveway in a brand-new car, top-of-the-line. I went over to admire it. My neighbor asked if I could help him unload. I could see that his new car was packed with new stuff. As he grabbed one end of a 60 inch TV & I grabbed the other, I commented to him, 'Somebody just got a big promotion!' 'No', my neighbor replied, 'actually, I just got laid off.' --- I nearly dropped my end of the TV. 'You see', he continued, 'I figured I better buy my new car & all of this nice stuff now, because as soon as the creditors learn I'm out of work, my credit will be no good.' My protests died in my mouth when I realized that my neighbor had simply done with his situation what Obama, Pelosi & Reid have done with our nation's economy."Best Regards & thanks for pulling the Orlando Tea Party together,J.M.Payne
Greetings All. Count Me and Mine all in. I have been warning people for the past several years something like this was gonna happen. And for years now, people just looked at me and thought I was crazy.When it became obvious that the liberal based media would help in Obama buying the Oval Office. I sounded warnings to anyone who would listen. For the past couple of years I have been talking about the Socialist - Communist Agenda of not only Barack Obama, but the entire liberal left. And still people looked at me and people thought I was being either a racist or I was simply crazy. I wish I had been crazy. But now is not the time for wishing, whining, crying or complaining. Those times ended on Nov 8th, 2008. NOW my friends, is the time for doing. Now is the time to take back out Country, our Constitution and Liberties. Now is the time to clean house, and take these politicians who think they rule our lives, who think they run things, and remind they that THEY work for We The People. It is time to remind these politicians that the only thing they really run is their mouth, and then it's nothing but lies that they spew out anyway. A couple hundred years ago, it would have been past due time to march on the capitol with pitchforks, tar, feathers and a few flaming torches. Deep down inside my gut, I wonder if that time of pitchforks, tar and feathers, is really so out of the question nowadays. See you all on Mar 21 for the Orlando Tea Party.

We got into this mess by people spending money they didn't have to buy things they could not afford.To get out of this mess the government wants to spend money we don't have to buy things we can not afford.Isn't that what started this?
I'll be there. But nothing will happen until our lawyer/politicians get our calls, letters, emails. faxes and no votes.
Hi, two things:1. Can you post how close you are in terms of raising the money for the event? Some of us want to help but are VERY cash-strapped so it would help to know just how close we really are! 2. Senator Mel Martinez just sided with Obummer. Martinez supports the liberal argument that basically those who doubt Obummer's citizenship, and therefore the legitimacy of his presidency --- should all just go away and be quiet. Conservatives need to THROW MEL MARTINEZ OUT !3. These tea parties are just a dry-run for the one hundred million man march on DC. Los Federales will certainly invoke martial law at that point and start commiting crimes against individual activist citizens. Look for a Nationwide 'Waco' type incident in the coming months. 50 THOUSAND people rioted yesterday in NYC. Anarchy is here. Atlas has already shrugged! Lock and Load, John GaltWho is John Galt?
Bless you Lisa for all the work you are doing. We will all be there to ensure our voices are being heard. We must stop the mortgaging of our country and the future of our kids and grandkids
“Owners of capital will stimulate the working class to buy more and more of expensive goods, houses and technology, pushing them to take more and more expensive credits, until their debt becomes unbearable. The unpaid debt will lead to bankruptcy of banks, which will have to be nationalized, and the State will have to take the road which will eventually lead to communism.” — Karl Marx, 1867, Das Kapital
This is a must for conservatives...we must unite for the common good of the nation; and not merely hand it over to the entitlement hounds....WE NEED MEDIA COVERAGE....LIKE THE LIBERAL PUKE STATION OF CNN...AND THE LOCALS TO BOOT....Obama needs to see the uprising.
I love this site. It is great. I cant wait to show those freeloading losers that they cant have us pay their mortgages. In my town many of these freeloading losers want healthcare and other things, they need to get better jobs. If you have mortgage trouble you should get thrown out if you want healthcare you need to understand that it is a privilege not a right. We will take back this country and place it right where it should be with business and profits not this we care about people stuff that hopebama pedals...who cares about people PROFIT PROFIT PROFIT!
I couldn't be more excited for this event. It is excatly what we need to wake up our state and country!!!Thank you Lisa!!!!
I Just heard about this. Yes, I am one of THOSE people who do not read the newspaper or watch/listen to the news. I gave up on the "One Voice" belief long ago. Shameful that I am.I live in Melbourne and plan to tell everyone I can. Thank you so much for lighting a fire under my *ss.
Thank you Lisa for organizing this event. It's time that we stand up and unit against Obama's radical agenda of socialism!! Count me in, and I'm spreading the word around with my co-workers [yes, we pay for our mortgages].
Thank you for organizing this event. I'm with Bud on this. Stop socialism and Obama. We are becoming a country where people think they have a right to health care when we all know it is a privilege. If we give everyone health care we'll end up like Canada where everyone gets health care and that is not good.What a horrid thought that everyone would get something like the privelege of seeing a doctor. Our system is fine it keeps those with no money from getting what we have the privelege of getting.
I'll be there and spread the word!WE need a big one to be held in Ft Lauderdale!From Boca Raton
There are many around this country who whish that those of us participating in these tea parties would just shut up, lay back and accept whatever is being done to us. I REFUSE!!! I have just as much right to make my voice and opinion heard as any of the leftists and I jolly well intend to exercise that right. You can bet I will be there.
Dan,I am one of the MANY who do not make $250,000 who will be there. Why, you ask? Because I detest socialism! I did not serve in the Marine Corps just to sit back and see my country sink into that slimepit. Although I an a registered Republican I will not be there primarily to support Republicans, but CONSERVATIVES who feel the same way I do. I will be there to support fellow patriots who are disgusted with what is happening in our country and to add my voice against it. If you cannot understand that, I feel sorry for you.
Little by little our great country is being taken away from us by liberal politicians. I am scared to death of the outrageous debt our children and grandchildren will be facing if the "anointed one" (OBAMA) keps throwing massive amounts of money to bailout poorly managed banks and corporations. We must somehow take back our country. Our founding fathers did!
I fear for my children's futures and I am bringing them with me to the Tea Party so they can learn that it is the Amercian People that make this country great, not the government. We need to take it back!
Thanks so much for putting this together.It is about time we the people speak up.I hope we can get the message across. I am concerned about our kids and our grandchildren being burdened with this debt. Go to GlenBeck.com he is getting a movement going We Surround You and get together with your neighbors,he will announce on March 13th how our voices will be heard. we are telling all our friends about this event. See you there.
I am so glad to see something like this going on! Thanks to all involved! This country is on a slippery slope right now. So many people bought in and drank the Koolaide and the great and miraculous "Change" is going to be catastrophic! Count me and my family in on the event!
We are with you. We'll be there in Orlando Mar 21. Need t-shirts site.
Up until this year I had considered myself a "bleeding heart" liberal democrat. However, since January 20, 2009, I have watched our consititution be pushed aside for the egotistical and narcissistic ideas of politions who are intent on destroying this great nation of our. I have renounced my party affiliation and now am a registered Independent.I am probably on the governments "hit list" because I have continually written our politicians to express my concern and frustration at what I see happening in our once great nation.I must say, that I never really apprecaited President Bush until now. I do so apoligize for the negative things that I have expressed about him. As the saying goes, "you never really know what you have until it is gone."I am looking forward to this event. Thanks to everyone who is involved!!
Have you read about the movement to send a teabag to the President, house speaker and Harry Reid... mail on April 1st so they receive by April 15th.. a non-violent symbolic jester to Washington DC.. Recommended reading for all:"Left Behind" by Tim LaHaye - Hope this book encourages you to seek Our Lord/Savior before its too late"Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand published in 1959 but shows what the country will look like under the current bailout plan.Will ask friends to gather in Orlando for the tea party. Glad this is coming together.
My whole family will be there in force, proud and spirited. We all have invited our many liberal friends to attend so they me be baptized with the holy truth. Thanks everyone for all that you have done to make this possible.
My family and I will be there. We lived in Boston before moving here to Orlando, so I am really looking forward to participating in this Tea Party!
I will be posting flyers. I will also be there with a friend and some of my family. Thanks for doing this. It is a great idea!
We must stop this madness. Join this protest. The silent majority must be heard!!
This is great. It's time the people who make this country great, take back our right to have more of a voice than those who disparage it.
What a GREAT venue and GREAT host (Bud) for this event. Thanks to Lisa for taking the lead.The PEOPLE rule! ROCK ON EVERYBODY!!
This is excellent, after I heard about the other Tea Partys I couldnt wait until one was organized here in Orlando. We need to protect the Constitution and this Country's future!!!
we are a marine family and we are 78 years old.our family has served in korea, vietnam, desert storm, and iraq.we are flag wavers and defenders of the constitution of the united states of america.we will be there on the 21st the lord willing and the creeks don't rise!!!!!
I will be there. COUNT ON IT!!!!!
My family will be there - what an opportunity to teach our children that in America we don't have to stay silent when injustice is being done. We have a voice!
I'll be there. I'm going to rally a gang of angry engineers.jdl
I look forward to being there and being heard. It is about time Americans finally find their voice.
I am proud of our fighting men & women in our U.S. Armed Forced.Whether in Iraq/ Aphganistan or whereever our fighting men & women need to go! I am most proud in having my birthday on the 4th of July, especially in our country's perilis direction and for the "Victory" of our U.S. troops in the Theatres' of Iraq or Aphganistan, or whereever we may need to go next!Sincereest pride & Graditute!Dale, "Real Live Npehew to my Uncle Sam" Sincerely, Dale
I am so there! We cannot allow the politicians to take our hard-earned money for their own causes. We work hard and pay taxes and live by the rules, and for what? Thank you for bringing this about! As for the stimulus package, any economics 101 student will tell you that you cannot borrow yourself into prosperity. Support the Fair Tax!
Thank you, thank you to all for your support and enthusiasm! You all are inspirational to me and you give me hope that we will stand united and protect what has made our country the greatest nation to ever exist! This will be the best "Tea Party" yet!
Thank you Lisa, maybe this will finally wake up the politicians to realize that we, the people are not stupid & we realize what is actually going on.
Thank you for organizing this effort. I was beginning to think I was alone. I look forward to joining others in the important fight in saving our republic.
God Bless America!! I will be there.
I have read through your guestbook and one thing jumps out at me after reading the comments that people left. Apparently, because I do not share your views, I am not a "true American" or a "real American". I find that strange, for many reasons, among them that I served in the United States Army for 7 years, how many people on this list can claim to have served in the armed forces?I pay my taxes, I vote, I own stocks, and property, yet my views are different than yours so I am not "real" or "true".I think instead of all of you gathering at Lake Eola on the 21st and bashing our current government maybe the lot of you should focus on helping America become whole again. Let's stop trying to separate it and divide it so that the conservative right can "take it back" and focus on how to make it, what were the words used, I think it was ..."one nation under god". Let's focus on the one nation part and not make it two nations.I am for America, and hope that maybe someday you will be too.Doug
Continuing on.I want someone to explain to me what your plan is for America and how to solve the current crisis we are in.So far all I have heard is Obama sucks and the democrats are going to ruin the country.What is the republican plan, pretend for just a minute that the election had gone the other way. Would my GM stock be worth $100 a share today, that would be nice. Would I not have to worry that my bank is going to collapse tomorrow?Explain to me how things would be different if on November 4th the election had gone the other way.Doug
Doug-Obama sucks and the democrats are going to ruin the country.there are probably more people on this board that served than you think.Dont ever say I am not for america. You do not speak for me. You never will.First of all- come off your high horse, thanks for serving, but dont bash those who didnt and try to make them feel bad they they have not served. Dont play the "I served in the ___ what have you done?" card. You should try to be humble. What matters is that you, and others, make your mark on the map somehow. You can do it through church, business, charity, military, whatever.You wanna know what would be different?The government would not have 1) Signed legislation closing Gitmo 2) Authorized funding for foreign abortions. 3) Probably would not have had a tax cheat in charge of the IRS, or other tax cheats in the admin. 4) Drilled for oil in our own boundaries. 5) We would probably have spent money, but nothing as WRECKLESS as what we are seeing now. 6) Say yes to Cuba and NO to Columbia, one of our staunch allies.7) We would not have meet with Syria. A country that was, and probably still is contributing to the deaths of our troops in Iraq.It is your fault you invested in such a crappy car company, not others. GM would have tanked under a McCain presidency as well. Because they suck.Get a new bank.How many protests happened under Bush? And now you want to be united? I do not agree with your views. But I will not call you an outcast.Want my solution for getting america out of the mess?1) Cut taxes...everywhere. This includes the wealthy, or, most of the job creators in this country. Cutting taxes has ALWAYS led to getting out of a recession. Pass the Fair Tax, a consumption based tax. Work should NEVER be taxed. 2) Let stupid companies (like GM) fail. Others should take its place, at least that's how it is supposed to work. 3) You wanna hand out money fine. Lets give it to entrepreneurs who want to start a business that MAKES stuff. 4) Impose term limits on ALL elected officials.
Cutting income taxes especially, who could use an extra few THOUSAND (now thats a real stimulus) in their wallet....
Oh yes, Mark,And the 2nd amendment would not be under full assault right now by the AG.
To the Orlando Tea Party, in general assembly represented: Whereas, it would be irresponsible, for I, an average citizen, to recklessly take on a higher burden of debt than I and my family assembled could reasonably could pay down, and, Whereas, it would be illegal, for I, an average citizen, to knowingly and falsely state a higher family income and assets, and to knowingly and falsely understate family debt and liabilities, to influence the actions of lenders and the market driven economy in general, and, Whereas, it would be immoral, for I, an average citizen, to selfishly burden the future generations of Americans with a debt that will cripple the economic engine of progress, prosperity, and peace, both at home and abroad, and, Whereas, our government OF the people, BY the people, was divinely inspired by GOD, FOR the people, and, Whereas, our government is taking on a burden of debt that it can not reasonably pay down, and, Whereas, our government is manipulating the financial data on the cost of the stimulus programs and yearly Federal budget, and Whereas, our government is enslaving future generations of Americans, with liberal social agendas, policies, and legislation, Therefore, be it resolved that OUR government must abide the PEOPLE, further that OUR government must RESPECT the will of the PEOPLE, and not least, OUR government must act AS the PEOPLE, So that OUR GREAT nation shall not perish from this earth.
Doug,We are grateful for your service to our country, your paying taxes, voting, owning stock and property, you almost sound conservative.May I suggest you attend and see how many veterans are present and how they will be honored and remembered. A true veteran does not place himself above those who did not serve. This country was built by patriots and it looks like it will have to be done again. Sgt. USMC
Semper Fi Dad
We, the people, will be heard on Saturday 21, March. Mr. B. O., we are coming for you and your outrageous attempt of grabbing power to turn this country into your idea of socialistic and communistic utopia.
I have purchased some T-shirts to wear at the tea party. We are so excited about the Tea party and looking forward to seeing fellow patriots there.
Remember, President Regan had it right. Government is no the solution to our problems. Government is the problem. Keep up the good fight. Government will not spend us out of this economic mess. Only tax cuts for everyone will!!!
Dear Lisa,Thank you for all of you and your Team's hard work organizing this event.This is where it starts!
God bless (and save) America Heard about it from Bud Man
I'm in Deltona, and I'll be there! Who's doing signs? Or are there any suggestions for home-made signs?
I will be there "with bells on" - LIBERTY BELLS! The Constitution of the United States of America, once the hub of American law and freedoms, has been moved to the position of the hub cap. It has become merely an ornamental relic that serves no real function other than that of making the American people feel as if the document still matters to those who govern.It appears that the modern electorate chooses their leaders for the same purpose that they attend a magic show. Their actual desire seems to be that the performer deceive them."The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their money; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?" Jer 5:31
Great idea! Something tells me this group will not be as irrational as the code pink types.

WAKE UP AMERICA!!!I am so sick of people complaining about our government, but not doing anything about it. They feel helpless, useless, or just plain angry, but feel there is nothing they can do. Well guess what? You CAN do something about it! Make your voices heard by attending events like this, writing your elected leaders, emailing, and melting the phone lines telling those in power your thoughts. A good resource for contact information is found here: http://www.ourcountrydeservesbetter.com/issues/stopstimulus.html The silent majority can no longer stay silent! Our voices must be heard! Do not think that when we melt the phone lines, flood their mail boxes, and gather to raise our voices that it will not be heard. Remember that it is WE the People who are responsible for our elected officials future employment, and if we are loud enough, they will soon realize their jobs are on the line.Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- AND THAT GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE, SHALL NOT PERISH FROM THE EARTH. (emphasis mine)President Abraham LincolnGod Bless America and God Bless all the brave men and women who have fought for our freedoms and are currently putting themselves in harms way to defend this great country!!!
Here is a great way to contact your Congressman: https://writerep.house.gov/writerep/welcome.shtmlLETS ROLL!!!!!
I WILL BE THERE COME RAIN OR COME SHINE! GOD BLESS AMERICA!
We do encourage people to contact their Congressmen and women (as often at possible!) but we recommend using a respectful and professional tone. They are much more likely to read what you have to say and take is seriously.Thanks everyone for taking the time to post and voice your support. This is going to be an event to remember!! Let's keep spreading the word!
Never attended any type of protest in my life but, I WILL BE THERE.
It is only 1450 miles from our home. We will be there. Well worth the drive. We are mad as hell what is happening to our country. Our senators...Kohl and Feingold in Wi just will not listen to the people here in Wi.
I am planning to attend this great event and hope that thousands will be heard.It's needed throughout the country.
Thank you for doing this!!! My wife and I will be there to add our voice and support. We are looking forward to it!
My husband and I have our tee shirts and will be there "with bells on". Thank you folks for caring!!!!!
Thank you for a breath of sanity in this Obama can do no wrong mentality. We were taught in school to reason things out and think for ourselves. OPPS, that was old school before Clintons dummy down program, looks like it worked. I can't believe that these so called Americans are trying to sell this country down the river worse than Carter. Obama is trying to get his adgenda passed before anyone knows what hit them. Thank GOD for people like you who will stick out their neck and get all of us off our apathy to finally stand up and speak instead of just look the other way. We wiil definately be there on sat. thank GOD that we still have this right to express our DISPLEASURE for what (our Employees) in Washington are doing. I think they forgot they work for us .
Patriots, Check out my website. If you like it, pass it to your friends. http://www.directme.info/obama/index.html
Doug, I realize we may not share the same political views, but I know we both love America. I thank you for your service to our country and all who have served our country and kept us safe. If I could meet you face to face, I would personally thank you. For me, this protest is to reclaim our country. I am sick of everything being about the democrats or the republicans and their agenda. It is time for our agenda. This is the awakening of WE THE PEOPLE.My problem is with the destruction of capitalism and wealth distribution and taxes, taxes, taxes. The mantra that the rich need to pony up and be patriotic makes me cringe. They already pay most of the taxes. Does anyone really think it is okay to demonize the rich and then be hypocritical and not get mad at our government? The rich have never taken anything from me. They have never stolen money out of my paycheck. The government does it to me every 2 weeks. They also do it to me every time I fill my gas tank. At least when I buy a gallon of gas from Exxon I am getting a product from them, but then the government slaps on an extra 60 cents for something they didn't even produce and then proceed to waste that money through all their bureaucracy. As you know, I could go on and on with the list of taxes we pay on everything, but I think I would just get really depressed if I ever added it up. I don't mind paying taxes, but when they just keep raising the taxes because they have spent our money unwisely, then I have to say at some point enough is enough. They have raided my Social Security. I will be lucky if there is anything left when I retire. We are so broke, we depend on China to help us spend more money. My children cannot afford this government, whether it be republicans or democrats...they are both at fault. We have to do something now, because universal health care and cap and trade will be the straw that broke the camel's back.
I will be there, however, the fire is starting to burn and this needs to be the practice tea party for Washington!!I hope everyone that has visited this site is a registered voter...because if you aren't...shame on you...get registered today!!
Is anyone here bringing signs? I'm trying to come up with some ideas? Any input?
Congrads & Good luck on this wonderful event Lisa! I wish I could be there, but thankfully my mom & dad will be able to join you front & center. Thinking of you & wishing you the most successful tea party this country has ever seen!
I will be joining y'all, hopefully with a van full from Titusville.
Next weekend, we will be having a Tea Party. (remember Boston?) We want to make our politicians hear loud and clear that we are tired of the bailouts, the wasteful Washington spending and the push towards the socialization of this country!Let’s quit talking amongst ourselves, and venting about things we believe is destroying our nation, and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.We are exposed to “polls” every time they want us to believe they are doing what their constituents ask for, so why don’t we give them a “poll” and SHOW THEM what we want.Quit counting check marks, and start counting heads. Show up and be counted. Quit letting them represent you according to polls, and represent your self.We’ve gotten to this point because we just accept what comes our way, and only complain between ourselves, for fear of being “picked on” by the perpetrators. That’s Political Correctnessat the root...... but they can spend “your money” any way they feel led, turn a deaf ear to your complaints, and month by month chisel away at the foundation of your homeland.Get up, step up, sign up, speak up, or in the end... you will be fed up with where we have ended up.We have the right to exercise our freedom of speech, and voice our opinion of how “OUR LEADERS” are doing their jobs. ( or not doing them)
I don't know anyone listed here personally, but I know each & every one of you through our feelings & thoughts. The same disgust & disappointment is in our hearts. We are from the Palm Bay area & we are going to try to be there next week. It is time we hold our politicians accountable to work for us not the other way around. Somehow they have convinced themselves, that we aren't as smart as them, & consequently they don't have to listen to us anymore.WRONG !!!!!!!
Attended the We surround Them rally in Tampa last night. I'll be at the Tea Party in Orlando on Saturday. Enough is Enough. I've had it!!!!!!! Tired out throwing shoes at my TV God Bless you all. See you there.
Lisa, we heard about your Tea Party up here in the Maine woods, I would like to join you in Florida but the greedy and corrupt polititions who in their infinate malseasance have squandered our money and reduced my personal savings by more then sixty two percent have caused me and my family to curtail all travel and other enjoyments we have worked and saved for, so that the GOVERNMENT can give our hard earned money to the Illegal alians and the people who refuse to work because the governmemt is subsidizing their lives while doing great harm to ours! ( what about ILLEGAL the Washington polititions don't understand! They, who enacted the law and who refuse to allow our lawenforcemant to enforce the same laws).This great effort of yours should be a prelude to millions of us marching on Washington ASAP and demanding reform and telling that discusting group of incompantants that they work for us, not the outher way around and that they are living and working at our expense! Whether Democratic or Republican they all seem to be cut from the same cloth, greed and self enrichmant, making sure that they and their party stay in power to the detriment of us serfs, there is no difference between thses two parties and the communist party, in that thay choose those who will be voted into office.I am left with one burning question, WHERE WAS OBAMA BORN AND WHERE IS HIS REAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE?All those in Government have sworn to up hold and defentd the CONSTITUTIN OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA from all enimies forign and domestic and the CONSTITUTION requires that the President must be born in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! If there is a question of the legitimacy of said birth then it is incumbent upon all branches of our government to verify HIS place of birth! If found to be fraudulent all those involved should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.Good luck, LETS MARCH ON WASHINGTON THIS YEAR BEFORE ALL OUR MONEY IS GONE AND OUR CONSITUTION IS COMPLETLY TRASHED! LETS THROW THE BUMS OUT AND START ANEW.
Saturday, March 14, 2009What can I say, all of the above seem to have said it all. The only thing I would like to add is we need to organize Millions to march on Washington, this year! The government will not listen to anyone e-mailing, calling or writing. We need to physically march to be of any consequence in changing the direction of this govenment. They ignore small gatherings of the people and feel we are of no consequence to them, they fear us not and laugh, keeping their high paying jobs with the best health care our money can buy. Passing pay increases for them selves while my retirement has not given me a COLA since 1997. THINK ABOUT IT. WE ARE ALL IN THE SAME BOAT. LETS DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT NOW! THANK YOU LISA and all the hard working people setting up this event and good luck. I am praying for America and all of us middle to upper class who pay the monies, taxes, local and federal to support these bums.
Thanks for all the hard work you all have done for this! It is so very difficult for conservatives to get their messages out, and you are making it easy for us and fun, too. You all are a huge blessing.Richard Canary
I'm with you!
War is an ugly thing. But the ugliest thing of allis the person who will not defend his loved ones or his home from those who would take them from him. The taking can be so subtle as to disarm the less then vigilant person who cares not that his rights are being usurped by those who profess to assist him.Remain Vigilant at all times.
It is truly heartwarming to see the response to this call. I fear greatly for our once great republic but if this event and others like it stir us to stand up and say "No!" and to vote the criminals out of office, we have a chance. God Bless America!
good job lets take are country back wall street and special interest has done enough damage
I hope washington hears us.
OBAMA -1st MUSLIN schooloed President- Dow Jones down 31% firsts month- damage to economy more than 9/11-- Orlando Tea Party---March 21,2009--How do I get this printed on T SHIRT?
This type of action has been needed for quite sometime. My family and I will be there.
Robert, Sign Ideas? Take your pick:How Those Bailouts Working Out For You?Brother, Can You Spare a Trillion?Roast the StimulusSpread the Debt AroundCongress Gone Hog Wild!Capitalism Yes! Socialism Nyet!
Here's a few sign ideas:"Socialism Always Fails""It's Our Money""Keep the Change""The War on Change""We the People""Theft of a Nation"My sign will have an American flag with a hammer and sickle for stars.Get ready folks.. This is it !! Make it count!
"No Swindle Us Package""I'll Keep My FreedomYou can keep the change""Generational Theft""NO American Socialism""Commander in Thief" "Raising Taxes, Not Patriotic""USA Death Warrant""Fund bikini wax now!" "trillion-dollar boondoggle""You Can't spend your way out of debt""gimme gimme""Bend Over This is Gonna Hurt" "He's no messiah!""The Obama-Nation of America""I Want My Country Back!"“B.O. smells and so does Socialism.”
I'll be there next week to voice my opposition on this constitutional obamanation of a federal government that the MTV viewers of America have given us.
"Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country""Give me liberty or give me death"No North American UnionSovereignty For FloridaSubsidizing private failures with public money220 years to build a republic, 1 month to destroy itBig Brother needs to be castratedDon't tread on meGreat men died for my freedom, It's not Obama's to give awayI can't afford your mortgageOink if you love earmarksSocialism is not the Change we had in mindIf you can read this sign, you're smarter than Nancy PelosiFor kids: When I grow up I want to be free. Don't rob my piggy bank to pay for your pork
I am extremely apalled and deeply disturbed at the questionable direction of our country's future.
They should raise the voting age to 28.
The young uneducated voters and Obama is socializing our country. We should also demand term limits (10 years total) on Congress. We pay their salaries and they do not deserve a pay hike. I also am upset Obama now is dictating what words are permitted to be said. Send Gitmo to Chicago or San Francisco. Just Words, Just Word
First, let me say to you, Lisa Feroli, who created this organization, thank you. Finally, I don't feel alone in my struggle and my frustration as to how to open up America's eyes, and to alert them to the fact, of where the current administration is taking our beautiful nation. Straight into socialistic governing. We, as American citizens, have a responsibility to preserve "Our Liberty", and any threat to "Our Liberty" deserves a very serious response, not fancy showmanship or enormous pay-offs, at the taxpayers expense. We, the people, are the only ones who can change this.George Washington once said, in regards to Our America, Land of the Free... "the love of liberty is interwoven within every ligament of American hearts". (American Patriots Almanac) There is another mention from that inspiring book that I feel I must share, "Poverty and Desperation make fertile ground for would-be-dictators." Let us take a lesson from Patrick Henry in his “Liberty or Death” speech. “The time has come for the American People to gather their strength and commit themselves to action.” Or the dedication on the Jefferson Memorial, which reads, “Men who will not fight for liberty, will lose it.”We can not let that happen. I will be attending the event and I have sent an invite to everyone I know. To advise everyone and anyone who wants a better America, to be there also. Thank you again for your dedication to this very serious and very worthy cause. God Bless You, Lisa.
My wife and I will be there. We will drag as many with us as possible.Thanx from Hobe Sound
Can't wait to bring my children and show them what happens when "history repeats itself!" With a twist - in Orlando, without tea - but our heart is 110% for sharing with our elected officials the true meaning of Representation. Thanks for providing this important learning opportunity for our children, our community and our government!
Can't wait. I will spread the word as much as I can. Finally a forum to tell politicians that Republicans and Democrats (Americans !) are sick and tired of lies and hand outs. If anyone sees the Constitution we used to have, bring it please.
I am a newly registered Independent voter whom has left the republican party and hope to be a part of this outreach.We need to vote out all these idiots in dc.
I hope the media does a good job on this one.. Let's create a SHOCKWAVE that reverberates all the way up to Washington! If our numbers are great, they will listen.
Thank you for giving our voice back. This is change we can believe in not just words to get elected by. Mean what you say and say what you mean. Get Glen Beck on board with his 912 Project.
Hello Lisa, we wanted to tell you how proud we are of the work you and your group a doing. It takes a special type of person to initiate a stand like this. There are millions of people out there that know we need smaller government and far less spending but we just follow the program like sheep. Folks like you are waking people up and we hope the wave of support continues to grow. We will do anything we can to support you. Stay strong and keep up the good fight! We would like to leave you with one of our favorite quotes by Margaret Meade that certainly applies here."Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world, indeed it is the only thing that ever has."Good luck!Mark & Margaret learyPlymouth Ma.
Hi everyone, PLEASE go to oilforimmigration.org. Obama has 100 different addresses numerous social security numbers. THIS IS VERY SHOCKING>130 current job positions according to Intellis Jobs.com. NO TAXES REPORTED> you will see where your money is going. They have built concentration camps all over the country. Thats where they are going to put us if we don't act fast. On the same website check out the Obama Movie. This will open your eyes so wide, we must unite. Obama refuses to tell the american people who he really is. Are you smarter than a 5th grader? Why would you seal every record about yourself. spend nearly 1Million dollars in legal fees over a $20. document, If you don't have something to hide. We cannot tolerate this behavior from our so called President. His true colors are not RED/WHITE/BLUE. History is repeating it's self. HITLER HAS RETURNED. We must take our country back NOW.
< SCHOCKING INDEED<The article Linda is telling about is (Dr.Orly Taitz -I Did It. Justice Roberts Agreed to read all of my documents.) The Obama movie is 2 hours long so be prepared. It will be the most important movie you will ever watch. Thank you for sharing that. Now MY FELLOW AMERICANS WE MUST HAVE A PLAN... What would happen if America Stopped working for one week? Maybe two weeks. How long would be enough until they got the message?We can plan for this. They want us to protest so they can impose marshall law. We have to be smarter than that. Lisa and everyone else involved in this adventure I thank you. The Fathers, Sons, Brothers, Uncles, Cousins, Sisters and our Best Friends that have lost their lives fighting for us. Now we must fight for them. Thanks to all who have voiced and vented on this site. There are more of us than them. We must pray, So help us God.
Help spread the word! Here's some help. I was able to get a flyer to every employee at Publix, 7-11, Hess, Walgreens etc. in my area. I go right to the manager and sell him. He/She then allows me to sell the employees and the customers. I simply ask "Do you believe in our Constitution, freedom and liberty? Are you against our government giving our money to Wall St. (If positive feedback hand them the flyer)? This Saturday at Lake Eola. The Orlando Tea Party! We are going to unite and take back our country! Government is out of control and if we do not stand together we will break apart. Please visit OrlandoTeaParty.com, send a link to all your contacts and bring your family, friends and coworkers to Lake Eola. Print more flyers and pass them out. This is happening across the country and there is going to be a huge turn out this Saturday." That's the basic pitch and I talk pretty fast so I can get to the next person quickly. As people overhear they approach me and ASK for a flyer. They are so happy to find someone else that thinks the way they do. The conversations concerning our deteriorating Constitution and government spending actually have started crowds at Wal-Mart. Many people are already aware of sending tea bags to Washington in April. I've handed out and talked to over 100 people. It's very exciting and fun to meet other people who have had enough of big government! I hope this helps. Also, you have got to see the movies at RestoreOurRights.Blogspot.com. The newly released movie, "The Obama Deception" is AWESOME! This site has a complete collection of all freedom movies, clips, videos, websites etc. Unite Now! Support H.R.1207. Let's show Washington who is really in charge! Good luck to everyone! See you Saturday!
My family will be there to include my teenage daughter and her boyfriend. Even THEY have figured out this Government is WRONG! Thank you Bud for organizing this wonderful event for the silent majority to speak! God knows, we're all to busy working during the week to "protest" so I'm happy you've made it on the weekend!Regards and keep up the fight!
Sign Idea: Why tax when you can print, inflate and devalue everyone's money? Also us out on reteaparty.com. They've been nice enough to promote our Orlando Tea Party even though they are only taking requests for the big July 4th Tea Parties happening across the country.
Check out Orlando Tea Party at reteaparty.com
we need to secure our borders and stop the invasion they are letting happen.so they cant have there new illegal voters they want to use against us.
Thanks Lisa - can't wait to make our voices heard!
We are a family of four coming from Tampa with fantastic signs and American spirit. See you there!
We are coming to support this worthy event.
Glen Beck for President!
Does the venue have sanctioned parking? If not does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.
can't wait to be around like minded smart people.
I made a donation and I'll be there...with friends!!! Let's let them know what we think.
Is this event still on for this weekend?
We're really excited about the event this weekend and hope everyone is spreading the word! We expect a tremendous turn-out!
We'll be there. We must be heard. The country is being run by socialists. It's time to wake up America.
It is about time we stop being so appathetic about our govt. Great job organizing! Of course to get more peole there better media would be nice but oh yeah they are on the other side aren't they!
This is not about Republican or Democrat, left or right. It's about right or wrong, freedom or socialism. Where in our Constitution does it say the government has the right to TAKE the peoples money and give it to private corporations? The news is now flooded with these AIG bonuses protests. Americans are livid about $165 Million? You have got to be kidding me. What about the $130 Billion that was handed over to AIG no questions asked? Nobody is throwing a fit about the Trillions we are going in debt so Obama can take care of his friends on Wall St. I dare anybody to count to a trillion. I'll check on you in 30,000 years! WAKE UP America! Your government is stealing from you. Speak up! Unite!
"His arrogance will be his downfall"
Long live the revolution!
Count on me and my co-workers.
Well done Lisa. I cannot be at the tea party unfortunately. My niece has just been diagnosed with diabetes and I will be walking for a cure at Cocoa Beach this Saturday. I did make a donation however. I am, like everyone else I am sure, very concerned about the Organize for America campaign being launched by B. Hussein Obama. Perhaps the organizers of the various tea parties or websites similar to this one could use the email addresses of the attendees/respondents to create a database of potential volunteers to mount a counter grass roots campaign. If this is feasible, consider this my written consent to use or distribute my email address for this cause. "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other". -- John Adams, October 11, 1798
Yabadabado! It's a party!
Good job Lisa, I'll be there. Keep up the god work!
Myself and my 10 yo daughter will be there. We cannot let this country fall into the hands of socialism. Many have died to keep this country free. I am a soldier and will do my part to keep this country free. LIVE FREE OR DIE
I am so thankful to have this opportunity to let my voice be heard. It is time the silent majority - the real america - be heard - the politicians need to be put on notice - we will not take it anymore - i am all for a march in washington - just tell me when and I'll be there with as many as I can bring along - THANK YOU LISA and Family and God Bless You for starting this flame of freedom !!! GOD BLESS AMERICA
My wife and I will be excited to be there! We must take back out country, and fire the people in congress that don't realize that they WORK FOR US, or we will lose our country! Wake up America! Bring as many as you can!
I"m so glad to this happening! Tonight I found out that starting October ! our troops will start patroling our own streets according to the Army Times on line. Today in Samson, Ala. was a message for us to stop this Tea Parties! Let"s make alot of TEA!!!
Anyone who supports or believes in Ron Paul's principals should check out his website. CampaignForLiberty.com. If we are going to become one voice then it should be a national voice. Ron Paul has 110,000 members! All staying in touch with the latest developments in our quest to restore our Constitution. They will also be at the Tea Party. See you all there Saturday. Your Friend in Liberty, Andy
We are excited about being able to participate to make a difference in our country! Thanks for your efforts!! See ya Saturday!
Love what going on, full supporter for the cause, jt
Good job proud of you,Lisa! Keep up the good work. I am passing the word around!Love you,Grandmother
I'll be there with a friend, donation sent! Glad to be able to have a place to show my support. Thanks to all those who are organizing this!
Let us not forget that many of those who voted this team in do not pay taxes. Thus we have representation without taxation! Also, this is just a beginning. Mr O has a goal to double foreign aid via a gift to the UN. Give me a BREAK. You bet I'll be there!!!
Greetings All....The Time has Come....sadly Government has run amuck....Too Many Clear American Voices are not being heard....We need lots of Positive Action while there is still time, before the Feds hit Us with High Inflation....The Real Storm has not hit Us - YET
My 2nd Comment is that I have been pushing Clean Energy for 2 Years....My latest cause is Oil from Algae....I hope PetroAlgae in Melbourne Florida will include Me in this venture....We need less corruption and more real progress to be Free From Foreign Oil !!!
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. THE LIBS HAVE BEEN SPOUTING OFF LONG ENOUGH. WE CAN NOT BE SILENT ANYMORE. THIS IS WHAT BEING POLITICALLY CORRECT GETS YOU. IV'E HAD IT
What we'll do Saturday 12N-2PM is important. What we'll do after that determines the future of our country. (Yes, it's that bad. Read your history.)How can we sustain the momentum in a meaningful way? We're proud of you, Lisa, for leading the charge.God bless America.
I'm proud to be a conservative!!!!!Long live talk radio and their research teams.Can we get a conservative group in Central Florida to keep abreast of all the important issues and help to plan upcoming events. This could become THE place for inquiring CONSERVATIVE minds!!!!!!! Thanks to LISA and BUD. DON'T FORGET TO BRING YOUR LIBERTY BELLS ON SATURDAY.
Yes, we must unite - as one Nationunder God - - restore this nation to whatour forefathers have fought and died for. - I thank the Lord for you who haveorganized this event - - It is a MUST that we take a stand!!! and then MARCH~~~We have a liberty bell polished and ready!
I just heard Glen Beck say there's a chance he'll be there! WOW! This is going to be HUGE!Glen for President!!
I am tired of hearing about all the crap that is going on and would like to attend the tea party. I do not drive , if anyone lives near LARGO MALL please E_MAIL me THANKS pops
I will be there! I can't wait! I printed your flyers and passed them out in my neighborhood. If there is anything else I can do, please let me know.
Our Nation's capital capital has never lacked for (& is now overrun with) politicians who are convinced that all that is required for America to succeed is for We, the People, to just do as we are told. And they are convinced that they are the ones to do the telling. In fact, what has made America a success is that We, the People, tell the politicians what to do.
God Bless America, I will be there with three generations of my family. It's time to defend our liberty.
If enough people would get off the sofa and stand up for their convictions, the politicians would listen. They listen to the squeaky minority because they make the loudest noise.
Yes Robert, I also heard Glenn Beck say he just might be at the Orlando Tea Party. I think this will be hugh. I'm so excited about seeing everyone stand up and be heard. See you there!
Thank God for Glenn, Rush, Sean, Bud, Savage and Fox News....Real Leaders and Teachers
Can't wait to be there. Hope that Glenn can make it too. Enough is enough!Stop the insanity!
A couple of guests (posers, perhaps) brought up the issue of health care as a right or a privilege. The Left uses that to distract us from the real issue: freedom vs control. What the gov’t provides, it controls. We must not let the opposition define the debate. May I suggest replies like the following?“Freedom of religion is a right, not a privilege; so, am I entitled to have gov’t build me a church (while I just put a small co-pay in the offering plate)?”“Freedom of speech is a right, not a privilege; so, the gov’t will rent the Bob Carr Auditorium for me (with a $40 co-pay)?”“Freedom of the press is a right, not a privilege; so, can I take out a full-page ad in the Orlando Sentinel & be reimbursed by the gov’t (except for a $20 co-pay)?”“Keeping & bearing arms is a right, not a privilege; so, I should be able to walk into a gun store & get a gun at gov’t expense (with a $25 co-pay)?”We like freedom of religion, speech, the press & self-defense. Why not freedom in healthcare? If our semi-socialist health care system isn’t working well, why is the only possible solution a fully socialist one? Why don’t we put our faith in freedom, & our trust in each other, instead of submitting to the gov’t hand?Regards,
As a note to Jake, who says that as a fact the Boston Tea Party was to protest a "TAX CUT" on a corporation, that is correct as far as you went. But that tax cut was given to the British East India Company in an effort to get colonists to buy British goods as they were (at that point) cheaper than the goods they had taxed in the colonies. It was not comparable to the tax cuts that we want (and should have) today. So when you start quoting "facts", be sure you don't twist them into being unrecognizeable.
We are coming from South Florida to join in and support the cause!!!!!!!!!
I can't be there but I surely hope this event is televised and taped. I am with you all in spirit.
It's about time we all stood up and said ENOUGH!This is the largest raping of the American people in history - It needs to stop now.
To Mr. J. Payne, KUDOS!!! There was another Great American once named Payne!
To K. Harrison, Dear Great American Friend, why split hairs at a time like this? Let's just get out there and "Win one for the Gipper!"
I will be there with my family. We must stop this waste.
I'm not sure if press releases have already been sent to all the local news agencies, but I know WESH covered the Tea Party this morning. :-) Great to see some coverage of this epic event.
"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it." ~~~~~ Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931 - 2005 ~~~~~
I'm looking for specific actions that I can take to fight those wastrels. I'm tired of all the talk. Glenn Beck, so far, falls in line with all the rest of the windbags. All talk, no action statements. I can't make this tea party, but I'll be watching to hear what the results are.
Cindy - no offense intended, and not splitting hairs. Jake, if you read his final comment, simply doesn't get the correlation between our Tea Party and the original. His final paragraph was a snide commentary on what we're trying to accomplish.
Ditto... With everything people have already said... Im from ST Pete, but I will take the drive tomorrow... Our voices DO matter!!!!
My family and I will be there.The spending hit's all of us hard.It needs to stop.We want to thank Shelly, Lisa ,and all the others who care about our rights and our country for starting this we all stand behind you.We will all be there to stand up for what we believe in.Put the FREE back in freedom.Stop spending our money and bring all the jobs back.
Bravo for everyone who attends, as exercising your American rights to Freedom of Assembly and Free Speech in a democratic manner are never a waste of time.
WE WILL BE THERE SATERDAY, THANKS IN ADVANCE.
I believe that Glenn Beck mentioned on his radio show this morning that he was going to try to be at the Orlando tea party.
It is so good to know that people are sick to death of our politicians with their own agendas. Who do they think they are? They are employed by US, and they have forgotten that. It's time citizens do something about it. I have been telling friends and family that it just takes one voice, and it multiplies. Stand up and fight these politicians. We have the control, and we need to show them!!! God Bless America!
I have a Tea Bag affixed to my rear auto window, hoping this might catch on so our message of resitance to this huge spending can be public and wide spread, please join me, thanks
Glenn Beck is in Orlando, doing his show. I bet he will be at the Tea Party tomorrow. He's talking about it right now.
We can start by getting our congress to be responsible to the people they represent. Here is one idea for a rule that should be implemented. 1. Elections: a. Limit all campaigning to the year of the election. Limit campaign financing to funds collected from people and operating companies within the area to be represented by the candidate.
I attended the Cincinnati Tea Party last Sunday with my daughter and 5000 other concerned patriots. I will be with you in spirit as we continue the honorable though difficult journey towards regaining control of our government and our Country!
"WE THE PEOPLE..." are taking back our country!!! No more socialist, governmental corruption, and bailouts with our tax $. We are mad and demand Washington listen to us! I am mailing my tea bag LABELS (since DC is throwing out mail that contains an actual tea bag--"contraband material"), to my congressional reps and this so called "administration". ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!
How could I not be there!!! So, I will be there with bells on!!!
Greetings from Utah!Thanks for standing up and i hope this movement spreads and we can show these crooked politicians in DC we are sick and tired of being tread on.Don't Tread on Me!
where was all of this outrage during the Bush administration years? the Bush administration did more to morally corrupt and financially bankrupt the average american than anything that President Obama has proposed to date. the Bush administration laws hurt most of you on this website yet you were silent and were told to (and did) walk in lockstep with Bush and his corporate welfare initiatives. you were told to support tax cuts that didn't benefit most of your. how is it that conservatives / right wingers favored billions / trillions of dollars being sent to iraq and afghanistan to fund the "war on terror" yet there is this "outrage" when initiatives are proposed to invest in america. come on, people, it doesn't make sense. republicans are very quick to decry someone not being patriotic but there is nothing more patriotic than taking care of your own and not just the rich. finally, there is nothing more patriotic than supporting your president. Glenn, Rush, Hannity, BUD...they are not patriotic...they are hypocrites who hide behind the mic and only criticize and get the average american citizen's blood boiling and against laws and policies that benefit those very same average americans. if you are going to be upset, be upset at the right people and for the right reasons, and most importantly, think for yourselves.
Thanks for getting this organized. We will make the drive from Gainesville. Hope the media doesn't ignore this great cause.
Re-Elect NOBODYRe-Elect NOBODYRe-Elect NOBODYRe-Elect NOBODYRe-Elect NOBODY
its time to peacefully take our country back its time americans, all americans to stand up and be what we all where on 09/12/01 angry, but UNITIED not black, brown,yellowor red just damn angry AMERICANS
Thanks, Lisa, for taking it upon yourself to help others to speak up. We will be there on Saturday to show our support. God bless our country and the people in it!
I'm glad to see Americans starting to wake up to what is happening in this country. It's not just the Democrats, all our politicans have it so good in Washington DC that they don't care about the average citizen. I don't see them giving their salary increases back to help the economy, they just want our money. God save our great country
I'll be there with bells on. It is time to peacefully let them know that we have had it. Lies and greed. Dear Mr. President, "Please stop doing me favors, I am a responsible citizen of our great country and hard work has served me well, take a day off, I can't aford much more">
My whole family is coming. I want my kids to understand what is going on and that we CAN do something about it!
I thank God that Americans have begun to fight back. Our soldiers will be proud of us as we are of them. If we lose our country and our freedom, we have lost everything. I love everyone who turns out Saturday, March 21, 2009 to make a point. Hey! The USA!
I am so worried that the military will lose benefits that took years and years to get by blindly following President Obama's desires to take medical benefits and also require the service members to pay costs for the medical service. I am tired of illegal aliens have more benefits than a person who has worked 40 - 50 years and is a natural born citizen. Please put God back into everywhere God has been removed. Help! help! help! Pete Premo
I am glad that the message is getting out and that Americans are beginning to fight back against the attempts by the Goverment to strip our rights away from us. I love my country. May God bless us all!!!
God Bless America and the organizers of this event!
raiines,What exactly did Bush do to morally corrupt the average american?Isn't the money spent on the "war on terror" investing in America by keeping us safe from an ememy THAT KILLED 3000 AMERICANS AND VOWS TO KILL US ALL!!! This is what our tax dollars should be spent on, not SOCIALIST HEALTHCARE!
My boyfriend and I will definately be there!! Can't wait!! Thank you for organizing this!
" We the people " not the sheep of this Obaaaaamanation must make a stand and let Washington know that we will not stand by while our culture, econony, way of life, and future are destroyed!.We must stop this madness!.
Raiines and Steve,Our government has grown too big. It's not right or left. It's about out Constitution. This was supposed to be our servant government. They have seized too much power from the people. They don't listen to us anymore. They tell us how it is going to be like we are too stupid to take care of ourselves. We are taxed to the hilt and both parties spend our money like crazy. These wars are wrong and Obama is wrong. They should listen to the people. That is what our founders died for. So we can be free and have individual liberty not to be taken care of by our government from cradle to grave. If you are really interested in the truth click the link above. And please pursue the truth. Don't just believe what the media tells you. This is a Revolution! We are going to take back our country from these power hungry, spendaholic, wealthy so called representatives. This is our country not theirs. We the people will prevail! Good luck to you both and I hope you will join us in taking back our country.
Did I say out? Oops! I meant our. Please excuse the typos. I'm very tired. I must have handed out hundreds of flyers today. See you all tomorrow. Here's to Freedom and Liberty! Good Night!
In our Lifetime there are many important moments. the journey we are about to take could be not only the most important in our lifetime but also the most important moment for our children, grandchildren and generations to follow! Not only is this moment important to America but it is also important to the entire World. America is the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. We must prevail or evil will consume the World.
I'll be there, I hope it's a huge turnout!
Congratulations for your actions. I wish that I could be with you but will certainly be praying for the movement.
Thank God there's still some sane people left! My honey and me will see you there.
I'm not the only educator that believes we waste to much. What we need is consistency in spending with school budgets.We must teach social responsibility. We must promote civic pride. We must stop wasteful spending and not tolerate BIG government.
I will be there and know the other folks there can really appreciate the commitment by others to arrange and schedule this event. Kudos to all who have helped make this Tea Party happen! I Love this Country and am saddened at the direction I see it headed.
Thank GOD for opportunities and finally the resolve of patriotic Americans to band together so that their voices may at last begin being heard as one. It's not too late to take back our country, but if nothing is done it soon will be. In the words of the great 21st century philosipher Larry the Cable Guy, "Get-R-Done."
The Winter Park Art Festival is nearby. We should all band together and walk down Park Ave. with our signs!!
Good Morning Patriots! We are getting ready to leave for our 2 hour trip to orlando.Remember to pray today. Remember to be peaceable. You are praciticing your constitutional right to redress your goverment of your grievances today, protected under the God Given right to free speech under our Constitution. Almighty God, we ask your divine protection upon our protest. We know you have helped armies in battle against all odds throughout history. We head out under the banner of the Cross and the American flag, and pray your hand will guide our protest and open the eyes of those who would not see the destruction in our country. I ask your blessings and travel mercies on all who are attending. In your precious name, AMEN!!!! Eagles up! See you there!
Many of our grandparents left their parents and relatives behind to escape the rule of socialistic countries and to become citizens of America. Their children and grandchildren fought wars for the freedom to VOTE PRIVATELY, the opportunity to EARN a living and the RIGHT to BELIEVE, MENTION and PRAY to GOD or gods everywhere...anytime. Right now Hitler would be very proud of our government not our grandparents.
"Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it, have never known it again." - RONALD REAGAN I wouldn't miss this for the world!
PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW THIS! - Your tax dollars pays the interest that the government borrows from the Federal Reserve only. The Federal Reserve was implemented by private shareholders to create debt and make money off the American people for government loans. The more the government borrows from the Fed, the more interest is owed, therefore, higher taxes to pay the interest. The top shareholders of the Federal Reserve are anonymous! They are reaping the benefits of the suffering of the American people. WATCH PART III OF THE MOVIE ZEITGEIST!!!!
Thanks for organizing this. I only knew about it because Glenn Beck mentioned it yesterday. We'll be there!
Its 10:00 leaving in 15 minutes. See ya all there.
I will not be there today, but I am sending a donation. I will be praying for everyone. I want a future for my family and Obama is destroying it. Please check out other sites that are fighting for our freedom and rights.Jay Sekulow at www.aclj.orgChristian Coalition's Washington Weekly Review at www.cc.orgObama is getting ready to start picking for the supreme court. He is also trying to sneak through the Fairness Doctrine by calling it Diversity on the Airways, which is just a way to silence his opponents. Us. His true colors showed immediately on what he thinks of human life by overturning everything President Bush did to protect life.People just need to do the right thing. If people did the right thing jails would be less crowded, there would be less people being supported by government because the father or mother doesn't want to take care of the children they birthed, less people living off unemployment because they really don't want to work. The church, which is we the people, need to quit sitting on their holy pews and get involved in the political process. How can you call yourself a follower of Christ and vote for someone who is against everything you believe or don't vote at all. I have many christian friends who voted for this far leftist who doesn't care if his own grandchildren were to be aborted. My life has not been perfect and I have made decisions that were not good or maybe even not the right thing, but the greatest thing about being a christian and an American is you can always start over. Thank you all who are physically able to go today and to those who aren't there, but are praying for our nation.God Bless America, this is OUR GREAT COUNTRY!!!!
Thank you for giving a forum to voice our outrage at the arrogant disregard for the constitution and freedom. This latest hypocritical outrage about AIG would be funny if it was not so sad. If congress does not take the time to read a bill that it signed into law, how can they blame the recipients for receiving what was passed by congress in the first place! Pathetic excuse for public servants.I will be there!
Remember we get to vote many of these people out in 2010 who supported the stimulus package. This action needs to start now. Why aren't there term limits on these people, when the governor and the president have term limits. We had a mayor in our town for 18 years. The good ole boys kept getting him re-elected until last year when the people finally moved forward and voted in a new mayor. Term limits need to happen everywhere.
so, let me get this straight, Ginny. u are equating Obama to Hitlter? please provide facts for this. i don't see President Obama rounding up any Jews and placing them in concentration camps or denying you any of your rights or claiming that the african american race is the great and only race. please make sound arguments and do not regurgitate talk radio talking points. it is easy to feign outrage and be a part of the problem, but it takes courage to be a part of the solution. Bush took away your rights and actually grew your gov't using a conservative agenda (i.e., cutting taxes), pro-business policies - the trickle down that didn't trickle to the middle or poor), and starting wars that were not justified.the state of our economy is due to a republican agenda fronted by rush, hannity, beck, and BUD). if u want to be outraged turn off your radio and fox. start listening to all sides and not automatically dismissing the President because the radio tells u so. again, people weren't up in arms when the Bush Administration reduced us to deficit spending in the name of security and the war on terror, but how can people get upset when we are investing in america. it doesn't make sense. these are things that have been neglected for far too long. how is it socialistic to invest in your own country? how is it socialistic to want kids to have a good education? or good healthcare(healthcare that u choose by the way). the anger just doesn't add up. - raiines
This is a great cause and I wish I could be there! I will be on the lookout for another one in our area. I hope congress starts to pay attention to the taxpayers they are supposed to represent.
"We The People Stimulus Package" says it with the fervent passion that I feel for MY COUNTRY! Please watch & heed the message:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jeYscnFpEyA
I had hoped to be there today, but personal matters now prevent my attendance. I am with you all in spirit and will help any way I can in the future.
"I have spoken of the Federalists as if they were a homogeneous body, but this is not the truth. Under that name lurks the heretical sect of monarchists. Afraid to wear their own name, they creep under the mantle of Federalism, and the Federalists, like sheep permit the fox to take shelter among them, when pursued by dogs. These men have no right to office. If a monarchist be in office, anywhere , and it be known to the President, the oath he has taken to support the Constitution imperiosly requires the instantaneous dismission of such office; and I hold the President criminal if he is permitted such to remain. To appoint a monarchist to conduct the affairs of a republic, is like appointing an atheist to the priesthood." (Thomas Jefferson, From a newspaper letter, June 1803; Paul Leicester Ford, ed., The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, 10 vols. [New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1892-99], 8:237.) Remember, the Monarchists Jefferson are talking about wanted a King or Centralized government such as Socialist or Communist. These terms were not used in his day.
It warms my heart whenever I hear of Americans getting out to protest for what they believe in, but I have to wonder: where were you all in these past 8 years? To the people talking about the loss of our civil liberties: where were you when we actually started to lose them to the Patriot Act? The Tea Parties are marred by partisan politics. This feels like a dying gasp from a conservative party that has fallen out of touch with the people. This is lamentable, because we need a strong conservative party--we need a real conservative party. One that actually focuses on conserving not just the ideals that get them re-elected, but the state of the nation. That does not mean making the rich richer, which is the Republican track record. The rich will become richer naturally; they have the resources to invest and create, to buy into wealth generating markets. They do not need government (Republican or Democrat, conservative or liberal) to make this process easier.We face a crisis unprecedented in most of our lifetimes. The economy is in a tenuous position, and there is no guaranteed cure. Spending money to create jobs seems as good a shot as we have of bolstering our financial state. Public works (be they dog parks or road repair) create jobs. They don't have to be permanent jobs, we don't have to create new careers--we simply have to weather this storm and make sure that all of America makes it through with us. People need to work. People need to have money to spend. But we can't let the market collapse around us, so bailouts become the necessary evil.Our economic failures are the failures of a financial system that has moved away from the value of company to the perceived value of a company. They are the failures of a system where someone can become rich by creating rumors and causing companies to fail. They are the failures of a system that allows a corporation to buy bad loans and pass them off as good loans, based on the AAA rating that they received from one of their own companies. Greed has not been managed and regulated.Socialism is being thrown around like a curse word. Does love thy neighbor not extend to help thy neighbor? Is it bad to have some sort of available health care for all? The phrases "my tax dollars" and "borrowing from our children/grandchildren" are meaningless. Your tax dollars always get used for something, and I'd wager that a great majority of it is spent on things that you do not personally approve of. As a debt-based economy (the entire world is a debt-based economy), we are routinely borrowing from future generations. This is nothing new.How many of you have a background in economics? Or a working knowledge of Constitutional law that extends beyond your favorite amendments? Ignorance is largest problem we face as a society, but partisanship says "you don't need to learn, listen to the people in your chosen party. They will tell you what to do."For how long will we simply exchange one master for the next? How long will we engage in willful ignorance and base our decisions on nebulous moral stances? The people are being used. We are always being used in this political game to return to power those who claim to share our beliefs and our best interests. When was the last time you were truly represented, rather than simply having politicians pay lip-service to you?
I live in Williamsburg Virgina and I just spoke with my Son who lives in Orlando ... he was driving home from the Tea Party... I could not wait to hear about it ... he said it was well worth going to !!! the speakers were good and it was well organized ... he was glad he went ... Kudo's to all involved and to Lisa ... lorri
Thank you Lisa, Bud and team. Awesome Tea Party, GREAT turnout. I was proud to participate. Just got home and still excited.
I was hoping this would be so much more than an anti-Obama day today. I actually thought there would be lots of constitutionalists there: Instead I found a lot of disgruntled republicans. There was even a wannabe senator giving out business cards. I guess he didn’t get the message that it was the peoples turn to be heard with no room for a political soap box! Truly bummed.
Lets take our country back! Remember April 15th NATIONAL TEA PARTY date:http://www.meetup.com/Let-s-Take-Back-Our-Country/
I don't know if Angela was at the same tea party that I was but it was a truly wonderful event. Yes, there was a Senate candidate but he didn't speak and was only handing out cards. The whole event was a celebration of America and a way for patriotic Americans to show that we aren't going to just sit around and let the bunch in Washington do what they want to do without opposition. I had a great time. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
GREAT event, over 3,000 people attended without incident!! I'm very glad that I attended. Now will the media report on it?? Doubtful
Many thanks to those who organized this event! My husband, two friends and I attended and had a wonderful experience. What a great turnout!. I'm looking forward to the April 15 tea party and hope it is advertised on all radio and tv stations and in all newspapers as well as at everyone's workplace, school, church and civic organization. Those of us already involved in the "movement" are kept up to date via our internet communications, but it's those who never search the web for these activities whom we need to reach! Hope everyone will plan to attend a Glenn Beck viewing "We Surround Them" gathering on April, 17 at Kool Katz Grill and Pub in Kissimmee. It's a followup to the one on March 13. Information available on MeetUp.com. Stay aware and stay active!
What a great event! This is for all of my Brothers, Heros who never returned, families of our troops and those of us who live on today. May God bless each of you and your loved ones. Wake up Obama and all of your chosen ones, you are NOT about to take this country from those who LOVE IT! God bless the USA! "Special Forces" Viet Nam Veteran.
Thank you Robb for your service. There are many of us out here who appreciate your service. More that you know.
Great event. Well done. Enjoyed every minute of it. Hope it leads to bigger and better things!Kudos to all those involved!
could someone please give me examples...i'll take at least one...on how President Obama is trying to take your country from you.
raiinesraiinesraiinesraiines,Who are you trying to convince? Health care and education for everyone is socialist. Our Constitution does not say freedom, liberty and health care. This is the land of opportunity NOT the land of we'll take care of you. Socialism doesn't work. I wish you would not defend it. If you do not believe in individualism, freedom and the Constitution then why don't you vent on a socialist or communist website. Democrats and Republicans BOTH have run this country into the ground. Obama is just finishing us off. And unless we unite big government will win and there will be tyranny. Seriously, either join the fight to restore our rights and quit complaining or get lost. By the way YES you are a socialist. If you want better health care then buy it yourself. If you want better education then buy it yourself. If you want to force the rest of us to pay for these things then YOU ARE A SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST. Move to Cuba and enjoy!
There were plenty of us 'black people' there. Look harder!
To Boo: I expect you'll be wanting your mortgage paid by me, no?
What a wonderful time at the tea party. I met some beautiful Americans. I am so proud to be an American. Not white American, not black American, not Hispanic American, just the good ole USA American. See you April 15th at another tea party.
Did anyone else notice that there was not one spec of trash anywhere after the Tea Party? Quite a difference from the Mall in Washington after the Obama inauguration. I guess we just do it ourselves, instead of expecting someone else to do it for us.
Glad we came! What a pleasure to be with like minded, freedom loving, and capitalist supporting people. This country can overcome this current government's move to Socialism, but only with the voice of the people who attended today's rally shouting out NO MORE!!! We can and will drown out the whining and agenda driven groups whose goal is to take away our freedoms. Now our economy is being destroyed by printing Obama-bucks galore. Look at how our dollar has dropped in the last week against the Euro, by 10% as the first of these trillion dollar give aways are starting to enter into the marketplace. Wake up people!I can't wait for the next tea party. I just hope that we can afford to drive to Orlando a month from now. Talk to your friends and coworkers and get them outraged as you are and let's make the next event 10 times larger so maybe we can get somebody to pay attention to us.
Sorry, Boo had to be deleted due to profanity.
Had you been there, Martha McCoy, you would have seen that singer Lloyd Marcus came out and the first thing out of his mouth was "My name is Lloyd Marcus, and I'm not an African-American, I'm an AMERICAN!"The crowd went wild.Looks like he's not hung up about the color of his skin.
My familiy enjoyed the tea party today! Thanks to all those that coordinated the event. Saw brief recaps of the tea party on NBC, ABC and Fox...
I wish I could have been there, but family first (little league) I would like to know if any teaparty organiations are planning a major march on the US capital like the civil rights marches in the 60's. There are some big major Patriotic holidays comming up , just thinking out loud...
I am so glad I was able to go to the Tea Party...except for the fact that I was driving around for an hour for parking. It was reassuring to see like minded people getting together for the good of the nation. the TEA was everywhere! I only wish that the anti abortion people would have stayed home... kinda disturbing. There were so many creative signs and t shirts. I will definitely be going to more events!! Hopefully I can help out as well. Kudos to Lisa!!! Obamanomics will not win. "Don't Tread on ME"
Posted on MyAmericanism.com"I don't know the crowd estimate as of yet, but when I asked a police officer if she knew how many people were in attendence, she said, "watch the news tonight, see what they say and double it.""So True!
To: Lisa & Crew:THANK YOU for putting on this Tea Party. You have kindled a fire here that will spread & join with others to renew the light of liberty in our Nation.Best Regards,
My children and I attended the Tea Party today. Thank you to all the organizers. I'm looking forward to a couple of million people march to Washington to put some politicians out of work. I finally feel hopeful about our nation again, with the momentum that the tea parties are having that we can change Washington.Lover of Country,Alicia
The Party was great! I look forward to the next event. I recommend this.I saw the party covered on ch 9 & 13.Both Ch 2 & 6 didn't cover it.If you remember back when the messiah came campaigning, they were all out there fighting for elbow room. So, I believe we should issue fair warning to these nonparticipating channels that we want coverage. If not, we should organize a picket of their stations, and notify ch 9 & 13 of it, so they can cover us picketing the biased and "unfair," channels. Unfortunately, we need the media to spread the word; the internet's great, but many still watch the networks....even Fox 35 didn't show up...Yes, I believe, we should take a page out of OBama's playbook and more or less "coerce," the media into coverage for our next event "15 April?"
I believe raiines has had enough explanation; sorry dude, agigtation won't unhinge this crowd. That may work for Obama trying to win over homeless votes via ACORN and a crisp $10, but the folks here are true, real, and devout Americans. The problem with liberals is they cannot grasp that; and it incites fervor and jealousy. Sit back, read again the answers some posters here provided. If you still cannot comprehend the message of OBama's not good for the country, attend the next rally and,...oh, talk to the 9 yr old girl who spoke aloud to the crowd....she may have to bring it down to a liberal understanding level, but I feel she'll do it. Why? Because at 9, she's already more of a Patriotic American than anyone supporting Obama! For icing on the cake, a "typical," Obama supporter "had to," show up....fat, sloppy, unkempt....had no facts or knowledge to back up his claims...got boo'd out of the joint, and rightfully so; he was an agigtator. He stunk of libealism; and all it stands for...but, I bet he could get to the last level on "Doom" or "Space Invaders...." since most OBama supporters appear to live and thrive in an altered reality.
Oh yeah..forgot to add one thing. Although I didn't see our Tea Party covered on the national news, NBC did manage to provide coverage to a bus load of (~50 people) dipstick ACORNERS that felt compelled to go to an AIG executive's home and act like fools on his front lawn...WOW! 5000 of us gathered in the heart of a popular city with a well organized event...and somehow, this busload of entitlement leeches find out the name and address of one guy who took a bonus, and they get the coverage....I wonder of the OBama adminstration "accidently," let ACORN have this address......and for it to make National News over our tea party, reestablishes the fact that the media is heavliy biased toward the liberals.....we have our work cut out for us.Lisa - I have a recommendation as well, since the crowd was overwhelming as far as trying to sign the "scroll," will there be an opportunity to stop by the station and sign it? Since a lot of us live here in Orlando, by kid really wanted to sign it..but the line was long...how about we delay mailing it for awhile, to gather more signatures? Maybe Bud would go for that....
The turn out was great! Most of the people I talked to had heard about the event by word of mouth, which only goes to show you that if the media was doing there job there would have been standing room only in the streets of downtown Orlando. All the local news channels I tuned into via the TV or intenet prior to the event were sure to cover the Winter Park Art Fesitval in their local events calendar" but not a word about the Tea Party. To all you Liberals out there, be afraid, very afraid of what is happening to America and remember the folks at the tea party are fighting for YOU too. Seek the truth!
My heart grew with pride at all in attendance - and I was an hour late! It was so encouraging! Let's keep our momentum going and don't forget to send in our letters! I was disgusted at the lack of coverage by our local media! Judith is right...if this is what we can do with just word of mouth...think of what is to come! We are awaking the Sleeping Giant - the heart of America!Thank you for putting this together, Thank you Bud for telling us about it, to Marcus and everyone fir coming! We look forward to more events and more ways that we can come together as one voice: as Floridians and AMERICANS who WON'T TAKE IT ANY MORE!!!GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!
http://www.drudgereport.com/The Drudge report has a link to newspaper story about you all!!! Good Job!!
Perhaps someone could bring the scroll to the news media stations and see if they will sign it.
Is there a Floridians Unite facebook group? If not, it would be great of someone to start one. I am an Orlando native of 24 years but was unaware of the Tea Party on Saturday and am so disappointed that I missed it! I don't want to miss the next one.Thanks!
Excellent idea. There needs to be a way for everyone to stay connected. Lisa, Can you organize this?
Just got back from the first of what I hope is several tea parties. Great Job Lisa!
Lisa, Have you considered organizing through some type of social networking community like Facebook? There are folks in these online communities around the country just waiting to be connected with. This is Obama's secret weapon that not to many old schoolers are aware of. A big part of what got him elected..
TCM, I suggested that same maneuver that you did: if the media won't come to us, we come to them. Maybe on the National Tax Day Tea Party coming up on April 15.
That was a great event! Thank you Lisa. It's good to be among people who believe in freedom and the Constitution. However I met many people who seam to think we need to bomb Iran and pick up where Bush left off. I wish people would investigate the truth and look at the big picture. Wars, spending, taxing, regulating, entitlements and control over the people are all against the Constitution. Clinton, Bush and Obama hurt this country. Almost all of our Representatives are out to take care of themselves. They don't care about us. WAKE UP! We the people need to take back control of this government. PLEASE research the truth before you make up your mind. I once cheered on Bush and the illegal wars he started. Now I know the truth. You can too. Click on the red link above. Go to RestoreOurRights.Blogspot.com. Watch ALL of the movies, videos and TV shows listed on the left. Educate yourself. Research the facts. Do what's right not what you are told is right but what is actually RIGHT! STOP following presidents. QUIT looking for someone to show you the way. Look within yourself for the answers. We must continue this fight to RESTORE OUR CONSTITUTION! We are the last standing country in the world that gives power to the people. If we loose it will be tyranny for the world. This is much more then being taxed. Our monetary system is under assault and on the verge of collapses. Our borders are being opened up for the North American Union. The CFR, IMF and the World Bank are looking for a new world dollar or maybe the Amero or the Euro to replace our money. With one world currency can come a New World Order and trust me we do not want a one world government. Still think the New World Order is a conspiracy theory or myth? Time and NewsWeek have both done cover stories on what our government thinks has to happen to save us from a depression. We must unite and defend our Constitution! Unite or die. Stand for freedom or lay down for slavery. Watch every video on this website with an open mind then research the facts for yourself.RestoreOurRights.Blogspot.com Obama is NOT "The One". WE are "The One!"
Go to www.floridamarchforliberty.orgThis is a great place for tea party networking. This site was created by Ray Srour who was at the Orlando Tea Party and he also runs Momentum Radio.
Great event. We were thrilled to be there for it. Thanks to the organizers. So, what do we do now? More specifically, what can I, one angry citizen in Titusville, do to get my country back?
ReTeaParty.com (click link above) has a map and list of all the Tea Parties planned across the nation. Terry Osborn,If you want to know what you can do to get back our country go to RestoreOurRights.Blogspot.com and read the intro. There is a list of things we all can do to restore our rights, liberty and freedom in America. I would also add to that list to join local grassroots activists and groups who believe in our Constitution. Good Luck!

I'm from Gainesville and wish I could have made the Party. The pictures look great! I'm trying to get a group of dedicated constitutionalists here in the Socialist Republic of Alachua County and do a Tea Party just to see what kind of reaction we can get out of the socialists.....maybe they'll hyperventilate or something. I have to say that I agree with Steve.....boot them all out and then start from scratch. When you look at what Congress, espcially those who've been there for more than 2 terms, has been up to, just about anyone else would be an improvement.
Thank you Lisa for stepping up and putting on a great event! I enjoyed meeting with other like-minded individuals & would love to help out with the next one.
thank you for great job,we the people need to be heard.Impeach the president clean out the congress,and lets restart fresh with politicians who work for rhe people.Corruption and lies and spending our hard working $$$ for their pork and socalled"stimulus".
The Tea Party was GREAT! Our family was glad to be a part of it. The one irritation was that there was no media coverage prior to the event, and frankly, it seemed to us that the businesses and restaurants in the area were denied an opportunity to really shine. If they had been made aware, they could have embraced the event along with the rest of us - maybe even offered some specials as far as meals went - and they'd have been prepared for crowds. Talk about stimulus - these events could actually be a stimulus to local economies for the day if businesses in the area only knew in advance. As it was, we had a very nice late lunch/early dinner at a Cafe on Central. It took them quite a while to get orders out, though, because they had no prior knowledge of the event that was happening around the corner, and thus didn't have extra help working on Saturday. Check out my pix and blog at LeftBrainFemale.com
just wanted to let you know that my family and i attended the tea party on saturday and you guys did a great job! we had fun! if you have another one, we'll be there! thanks!
You people are insane! You are calling for Anarchy and you are missing that the real enemy is not big government (non-profit) but big business (for LOTS of profit). Get of your high horses and realize that it is over for the GREEDY execs...
TeaParty was awesome. Thank you everyone; it was an honor and a blessing to be among so many great American patriots! We must work hard to get OUR America back and keep her strong. Blessings to each of you as we fight the good fight.
ShellyGreat job on Glen Beck. You would think he would have had some look at the webesite or check other sources knowing how the media reports, very sloppy.
I took my 75 year old father to the tea party and we both were really moved by the turnout. I have mostly felt like an outsider because I was not liberal. But, I cannot go against my core beliefs and it was a thrill to see so many people that agree with my views. I hope this is only the beginning of this movement, and I will do what ever I can to help. Please feel free to email me if you need anyone in Sumter County to help with this movement.
Our elected officials need to be held to a certain % approval rating. As a group if they fall below that rating level then the pay needs to be reduced by that level. Bringing huge amounts of pork into a district to sucure a vote and their job should be no longer allowed. Two years between elections gives them much to much time to do harm to "WE THE PEOPLE" They need to hear from us between elections. They need to work as a team and as a team hold each other accountable.
Lisa, Thanks for the great job you are doing. I couldn't make it but will at the next. It's great to have a group of Patriots that I can become part of. One question though for our elected officials in Washington:What have we learned in two millennia? "The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debtshould be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered andcontrolled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lestRome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living onpublic assistance."----CICERO - 55 BC ...Evidently nothing.Steve
Dear Lisa,I have been in touch with our father and your cousin Danni on the cape she is married to my nephew Johnathan Field. It is my hope that this is sufficient enough of an introduction. What is The Dream of America?The Dream of America embraces the right of each individual to pursue their, LIFE, LIBERTY, and both, SPIRITUAL and MATERIAL PROSPERITY to the highest level of their abilities, to the benefit of themselves, their family, and the community in which they abide, so long as they do not interfere with the same rights of their fellow citizens.this is the beginning of my web page. I invite you to read and comment. sincerely, your servant,Paul
Thank you for this event.It was awesome to know you're not alone in your love and concern for this great nation. One of the most touching moments for me was helping a very frail woman out of her chair and over to sign the Declaration. She was determined and such an inspiration to me. Thank you again. Rozanne
I had planned to go to Orlando, but could not make it due to a family emergency. I am so proud of all my fellow Floridians for making it such a successful event. Fox news gave a great report. Too bad the other networks are behind on the news. LOL! Anyway, I can't wait to make it to the next event whenever it is!
I'm VERY impressed and encouraged by the large turnout in Orlando's Tea Party. Now we need to continue to POUR IT ON; BE STRONG IN THE LORD AND IN THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT, EPHESIANS 6:10. I WISH WE COULD HAVE ALL BEEN THERE ON MARCH 21.
Big Government, Big Debt, Big Mess!So as of today's count we are in debt $116.000.00. each. Hmmm.... I think I will write Obama to explain I have to quit my job because I can no longer afford to work. Please somebody pinch me and wake me up. This is like a really bad dream!
We are witness to the deliberate wholesale destruction of all we hold dear! Our currency, our free market economy our Representative Republic, our Constitution and our American way of life! Thanks for showing that thousands of Americans will not take it lying down! I thank you for making all of us know we are not alone in our disgust and contempt for this, out of control, arrogant government! The founders kept this covenant... "Our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor for the Constitution and the Free Republic!" Now it's our turn. Keep the Tea party's coming! Keep the faith and Let's Roll!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gmt4hOZOdz0Click above to watch Glenn Beck mention our Tea Party last night on his show.
I just saw the two young women on the Glenn Beck show who started the ball rolling in Orlando and just wanted to write and congratulate them and the people of Orlando.God bless you all and God bless the United States of America
Thanks! I'd be there if I lived closer! (I live in North Central Florida.)
Even though I live in Kentucky, I just want to tell you how much I support and appreciate what you're doing in Florida!
Please keep it up folks!! Remember, it is not about Red and Blue; it is about Right and Wrong!!!!
We all have to come together now. This is just the beginning for these tax hungry unemployed bums. Why dont they just tell us how much of our hard earned money we can keep.
Kudos from Colorado. Great job on the tea party. We have our state tea party on April 15 in Denver.
Thank you so much for all you have already done and please continue. Please let me know if ever I may help with anything.
Well done,we have to continue this protest,a lot is at stake,it is a slippery slope from SOCIALISM TO COMMUNISM.
We need more patriots like these women.Why is it that when I talk politics, everyone says, "I didnt vote for him". We really do need LESS gov't, so WHY do so many think we need more. Military pay for health insurance from private policies, Vote a bill that no one is allowed to read, and MORE. What is happening to this country ?????? The Vietnam Vet
WELL DONE!It's time to STOP the CRAZY folks in Washington from destroying this country.This is the USA - not some left-wing looney socialist state.STOP the spendingSTOP the power grabbingSTOP the left-wing loons
Good luck and I live in San Diego and do not know or heard if there is any tea parties in my area........??? I hope we can change the "change" that is happening.......and do the right thing!
saw you guys on glenn beck and it was inspiring. with you all the way on this.
Great event. Hope we have one in Illinois soon!
Just saw you all on Glen Beck. You go girls! We support you 100%. We live in one of the most conservative regions in the state of Florida. We are happy Neopolitans (Naples). Thank-you for taking up the gauntlet on behalf of all us God Loving, Family Loving, Country Loving Conservatives.
Great job Shelly and Lisa on GB!! We are having one in Wisconsin April 15th.Can't wait... I'm fired up!God Bless AmericaPeggy GraterA Proud Conservative
Great job folks! There are many more of us!
I was disappointed that I wasn't aware of the Tea Party before the fact. I did, however, see the recap on Glenn Beck tonight and what a turnout. It is good to see that Americans are still standing up against our corrupt government. Job well done ladies. I look forward to attending the next of many events!
Thank you Lisa, good work and were all in this together, and will solve it together..POWER IN NUMBERS....If we fight them one by one, they'll cut off our fingers. But if we JOIN together we can make a power fist. N.W. Flordida is here and represented

I am convinced that O'bama is still a Muslim and what a better way to destroy this nation for his brothers than to destroy the economy and the power of our dollar. He is in the process of doing it and we must stand up and be counted.
Great work!! I love the idea of having a Tea Party. We need to wake America up. God Bless America!!!
THANK YOU FOR STANDING UP AND MAKING YOUR VOICE HEARD...I WOULD LIKE TO BE INVOLVED HERE IN LINCOLN COUNTY OREGON. I AM DISABLED BUT WOULD COME OUT TO HELP OUR VOICES TO BE HEARD! WE WOULDN'T BE IN THIS SITUATION IF THE GOVERNMENT WEREN'T INVOLVED IN COVERING UP FOR THE CORPORATIONS. WE NEED TO GET THE GOVERNMENT OUT OF OUR LIVES AND GIVE THE UNPATRIOTIC A REASON TO BE PATRIOTIC, AGAIN!
To all you Floridians, We are so proud of you. We just got back from vacation and knew nothing of this Tea Party. We wish the people of the state of Maine would do as much and also contact Olympia Snowe ,Susan Collins,Michael Michaud and Chelly Pingree. The whole country needs to have a Tea Party. We all need to join in to save this great country of ours. We hope to hear more about this movement. Linda & Bob N. Wales, Me.
Just wanted to say THANK YOU! Thank you for caring, thank you for taking time out of your life and trying to make a change in our future. Again Just wanted to say THANK YOU!God Bless Everyone who tries.Also, everyone is invited to a brand new website designed to share your life with the world and each other. http://MeetAmerica.com
Keep up the good work..."The Bill of Rights is a literal and absolute document. The First Amendment doesn't say you have a right to speak out unless the government has a 'compelling interest' in censoring the Internet. The Second Amendment doesn't say you have the right to keep and bear arms until some madman plants a bomb. The Fourth Amendment doesn't say you have the right to be secure from search and seizure unless some FBI agent thinks you fit the profile of a terrorist. The government has no right to interfere with any of these freedoms under any circumstances. Government seems to operate on the principle that if even one individual is incapable of using his freedom competently, no one can be allowed to be free. "Quotes from Harry Browne
Let's not blame Obama....just VOTE OUT all those in CONGRESS AND THE HOUSE who want to destroy the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and gain POWER over all of us who are not govenment representitives. THEY ARE OUT OF TOUCH WITH THOSE THAT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO REPRESENT. There is too much corruption in government. Let's have transparency that obama promised!Let's all stand up for our rights or we won't have any!!
IT IS TIME WE IMPEACH THEM ALL AND SET A 1 TEARM LIMET FOR ALL SO THEY CAN NOT BE LIFE TIME POLETITIONS THAT IS THE WAY IT WAS INTENDED, AFTER ALL OUR PRESIDENTS CAN ONLY SERVE FOR 2 TERMS
Saw you on Glenn Beck - way to go!!!The time to act is NOW - tomorrow it may be too late. Lets hope this grass roots movement can gather enough momentum to MOW DOWN the evil politicians in DC who only seem to be interested in giving OUR CASH to the losers and the corrupt.Government - get out of my life.The TEA PARTIES give me hope that it is not too late - and some people still care about this country.Good Luck and God Bless.

I've been emailing the912 PROJECT We need to get a MILLION AMERICAN MARCH going very very soon!!! I fear for my kids.
I have been so concerned about our Nation. Instead of me holding my feeling on the inside, I decide to wear my feeling on the outside. That is when I decided to start www.cafepress.com/youmeshop. I hope it will help others to express themselves at your Tea Parties gatherings. Please tell your friends. Please visit my web page. Thank You
You get a great big thumbs up. Keep it up. http://i563.photobucket.com/albums/ss72/rhysing/lipton.jpg
We need more people like you ladies. I'm down with anything it takes to take our country back, including my own life if that's what it takes. "Resistance to tyrants is obedience to GOD."----Thomas Jefferson
I was starting to think I was the only one watching Glenn Beck all this time! Great to see that we really do surround them. Can't wait till the next Tea Party. See ya!
Dear Freedom Fighters!!Very sorry we were out of town.We support you 100%We'd love the chance to take our voices and petitions to Washington and let them know we have DRAWN THE LINE ONSPENDING,BORROWING and HIGHER TAXES. WITH GRATITUDE, JOHN and MARY (AND ANNIE
When & where is the next one?I was there!! My brother and I drove for more than 2 ½ hours to express our 1st Amendment Rights, that we once helped protect, and to show unity! I’ve been hearing excuses such as, “Those protests do nothing”, “I’m not going to drive that far”, “There is nothing we can do, just deal with it”, and blah... blah… blah… Here is my response to those naysayers. Where would the central/eastern Europeans be today, if they had the same attitudes and excuses back in 1989?
I have a dream, And it is not big Gov or big spending.
For good information watch:C-SPAN on tv (a must watch)FOX NEWS on tvCNN Lou Dobbs on tv
I missed the first tea party as the local news did not cover the event, but I am looking forward to your next evenRobert PilakOcala, Fl
Saw you on Fox. Keep up the great work. I am hoping our CT gatherings are as big on 4/15 as your were.
I admire what you two young women have done. America needs more like you. People who will actually put their thoughts into action in attempting to save our precious America from Socialism or worse. Keep up the good work! I saw you on Glenn Beck and am so very thankful for what he does.
THANK YOU for an inspirational job well done! If enough of us have the courage to follow through, we can take back our country! Our military men and women overseas are fighting to promote and protect freedom. We need to defend it here at home!
Go Orlando! I am from a small town in Central Texas. Hope you don't mind if we borrow a few of your ideas and keep the ball rolling. I am sending in a tea bag in lieu of check and then invoking the Rangel rule...Pay only when caught and no penalties or interest.
Lisa, Shelly,I just saw you on Fox and Friends. Good job!Thank you for bringing us all together in the largest rally Orlando has ever had. Keep going. If you need any help we are here for you. Lets do it again April 15th and July 4th. We the people will be heard and you've been an inspiration to all of us.Your Friend in Liberty,AndyRestoreOurRights.Blogspot.com
I drove 300 miles from SW Georgia to attend the Orlando Tea Party. This was for my 4 children and 2 grandchildren. More important even than for them I was compelled to be there for my country. At 54 I've voted since 1972, but little more. After attending the event, signing the scroll and mailing my 7 letters to Washington, I finally feel like I have a voice and that I'm participating in something that will truly make a difference for my country.Thank you, the organizers, who didn't wait for someone else to step up before taking a stand. You are appreciated and you are truly Great Americans. Together we will succeed in taking back America for its citizens and returning our country to the values and principles upon which it was founded.
Saw you Glen Beck and Fox, wow, I have found who to contact here in KC MO and will be making a call, very proud of you and we will be participating in KC...Very scary when the GOV wants power to take over a company when they see fit and the people in the senate (Barney/Chris) who helped us get in this in the mess will be over those decisions...
God Bless America!! I am sorry we missed the tea party with our fellow patriots....thought it was going to be in April:( We will definitely be at the next one and have printed out the tea bag mailer to send off to be heard:) Together we can make this country what it should be......
