Wanna come for Tea? Planning a Tax Day Tea Party

I am planning a Tea Party and NO, I am not talking about having you over for scones, jelly and lemon curd. I am jumping on the Tea Party bandwagon that is spreading across America, little towns and big. The threat of increased taxes, the stimulus package, the mortgage bailout, the government's leanings towards a massive takeover of just about EVERYTHING has got to come to an end. This is just crazy, people.

If you live in the area, this is your official invitation to come to the corner of Bridge and Main in Phoenixville, PA for a Tea Party on April 15, 2009 from 6-8 PM. You might not get tea but you will get a chance to make a public protest against the change happening in our country that I certainly can not believe in.

Glenn Beck is promoting the tea parties through his 912 project (9 principles/ 12 core values) and wants to see Americans of like mind gathering to make a statement.

Now, I have to tell you. I was never much of a rally girl. As I have aged, hopefully with some wisdom, I do see the value in not only joining a nationwide public statement but using that opportunity to educate the public and even the participants in how they can help support local causes towards a government that protects its families, liberties and privileges. There are a lot of writers who could say it fancier. There are those quoting the great minds of our forefathers. From the humble opinion of a Stay-At-Home-Mom, I am telling you that I am sick of seeing taxes go up with less and less benefit to the consumer and money being pumped into organizations that should have handled their own money (and mine) better to begin with.

It is seriously scaring me which is why I am organizing and hosting a Tea Party so that I can better understand what needs to be done, so that I can learn the issues and know how to express them, and so that I can help educate others in the process. More on this after I attend this weekend's PA Leadership Conference where I get to go hear people who do say it more eloquently. I will try to take good notes for you!

Here are just a few of the sign ideas from Tax Day Tea Party suggested for an event like this: (What would you put on a sign in 6 words or less?)
