WHY TEA PARTY?
teaparty1773c“It was all the way back in 1773 when American colonists held the Boston Tea Party. They pitched crates of tea into the harbor to protest British taxation. Now citizens angry over the stimulus bill are paying homage to the event to make a point by hosting tea parties in cities country-wide.”
“1773 TEA ACT: By reducing the tax on imported British tea, this act gave British merchants an unfair advantage in selling their tea in America. American colonists condemned the act, and many planned to boycott tea.
1773 BOSTON TEA PARTY: When British tea ships arrived in Boston harbor, many citizens wanted the tea sent back to England without the payment of any taxes. The royal governor insisted on payment of all taxes. On December 16, a group of men disguised as Indians boarded the ships and dumped all the tea in the harbor. As news of the “tea party” spread, similar acts of resistance occurred in other ports.”

FACTS: WHAT WE ARE PROTESTING

  • 10 Tax Facts for Tax Day Tea Parties
    #1. Under the Obama budget, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projects that the national debt will double over the next 5 years; and it will triple over the next 10 years to $17.3 trillion.
    #2. Under the Obama budget, CBO projects that the national debt will soar over the next 10 years from 40% of GDP today to a shocking 82.4%. (Ronald Reagan left office with the national debt at 42% of GDP).
    #3. The president’s budget also states that total federal borrowing will grow by $2.7 trillion this year alone, an increase of 27% in 1 year!
    #4. The budget Obama proposes for this year increases federal spending by an incredible 34% over the previous year, with a total of $4 trillion in federal spending, the highest ever.
    #5. The federal budget deficit (not the national debt) would reach $1.845 trillion this year, according to the CBO, the highest ever. That would be more than 7 times Reagan’s largest budget deficit of $221 billion, which caused so much consternation among Reagan’s critics.
    #6. The CBO estimates that this Obama budget deficit will total an astounding 13.1% of GDP, more than one-eighth of the entire U.S. economy, for the federal budget deficit alone! Under George Bush, the federal deficit for 2008 was 3.2% of GDP. The deficit for fiscal year 2007, in the last budget adopted when Congress was controlled by Republican majorities, was $162 billion, or 1.2% of GDP.
    #7. The Obama budget also includes $1 trillion in tax increases on the upper 5% of income earners, mostly tax rate increases. But the top 5% of income earners already pays 60% of all income taxes.
    #8. The Obama budget projects that revenues from the corporate income tax will more than double in 3 years, increasing, in fact, by more than 124%.
    #9. Another $645 billion tax increase comes from Obama’s anti-global warming cap and trade system, which is essentially an energy tax on the production and use of carbon energy, such as oil, natural gas, and coal.
    #10. While the Obama administration claims to have cut $2 trillion from the budget over 10 years, fully $1.5 trillion of those “cuts” actually represents the troop drawdown in Iraq, which was already scheduled to occur under the Bush administration. Of the remaining $500 billion in budget “savings,” fully $311 billion is categorized as “interest savings” but is actually an additional tax increase on upper income earners.

  • 10 Ways the Obama Budget Wastes Taxpayer Money, or here
    Obama’s fiscal year 2010 budget proposal amounting to $3.55 trillion in spending was released on Feb. 26. According to the CBO, the president’s proposals will add deficits of $9,300,000,000,000 over the next 10 years—many times more than the inflation adjusted cost of all of World War II. The budget proposal sets record levels of annual spending between a minimum of $3,556,000,000,000 in 2011 and $5,139,000,000,000 in 2019. The budget raises taxes by as much as $3,000,000,000,000 over the next ten years:
    1. The Budget Includes a $646 Billion Cap-and-Trade Energy Tax.
    2. The Budget Makes a “Down Payment” on Socializing Healthcare.
    3. The Budget Hands out Billions to Agencies that Fund ACORN and other Community Organizing Groups.
    4. The Budget Increases Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Funding after It Helped Cause the Financial Crisis.
    5. The Budget Summary Claims that Government Knows Better than Taxpayers about Their Retirement.
    6. The Budget Creates Yet Another Entitlement and Spends Billions on Pell Grants.
    7. The Budget Spends $178 Billion on Interest on the Debt.
    8. The Budget (as Part of Its $1 Trillion Tax Hike!) Raises Taxes by $1 Billion to Fund the Failed EPA Superfund Program.
    9. The Budget Generates Even More Cheap Credit to Further Distort the Market.
    10. The Budget Increases Funding for Space Exploration while the Country Suffers in Recession.

  • Infiltration: how to deal with potential agents provocateurs from the left:
    It’s not time to back down, it’s time to prepare for such an infiltration. “ACORN and the Huffington Post are planning to infiltrate the Tea Parties…trying to make the Tea Party movement seem to be what it’s not, painting libertarians as racists or similar nonsense, well, that deserves to be exposed and countered vigorously. So my recommendation to Tea Party demonstrators…Keep your eye out for the most extreme characters and then ask yourself: Is that real? Is that person who he or she says he is? Cui bono, who profits, here from what they are saying or doing? Draw your conclusions (carefully!) and then act accordingly and completely within the law.”

RULES: (Hat tip: San Antonio Tea Party)
Tea Parties are non-partisan events. ALL who agree that the government is wasting far too much money are welcome, as long as they abide by the rules.

  • RULE 1: No Violence
    We are not anarchists. We are concerned citizens using the freedoms secured by our nations founders and declared in the Bill of Rights to petition our government. Any who advocate, in general, any act of violence or other active civil disobedience will be told (not asked–TOLD!) to leave our reserved area. Any who advocate, in specific, any act of violence will be reported to the Police or to the US Secret Service, as appropriate. Our Founders gave us the Bill of Rights and we will use them. Talk of “battles” must be reserved to the context of “Battle of the Flowers” and “political battles.” We will act in a peaceful, lawful manner, period. PERIOD. Your alternative is to form your own protest, separate from ours. We have no problem with those who want to organize their own Tea Party. Good luck, and may God Bless your efforts.
  • RULE 2: Be Polite
    We will not use profanity in our speeches, on our signs, or to any members of the press who might be present. While we will raise our voices with spirit when appropriate, we will deport ourselves in general with decorum that is respectful of the seriousness of the occasion.
  • RULE 3: Be a Good Citizen
    We will be courteous and helpful to our fellow citizens. Should we see someone in need, whether they need a place to sit, medical attention, or just a friendly smile, we will ensure their needs are met in the best tradition of the American spirit. When we are done, we will all help ensure our Tea Party location is clean and ready for whomever should use it next.

Original Tea Party in Boston, 1773
Boston, December 20, 1773:
“A number of brave & resolute men, determined to do all in their power to save their country from the ruin which their enemies had plotted, in less than four hours, emptied every chest of tea on board the three ships commanded by the captains Hall, Bruce, and Coffin, amounting to 342 chests, into the sea!! without the least damage done to the ships or any other property. The matters and owners are well pleas’d that their ships are thus clear’d; and the people are almost universally congratulating each other on this happy event.”
