A Different Kind of ‘Tea Party’

April 15th, 2009

This afternoon my mom, along with thousands across the country are attending ‘tea parties’ which are (to quote the website- TaxDayTeaParty.com)

What is this Tea Party effort all about?

The Tea Party effort is just a small piece of a much larger movement aimed at restoring the basic free-market principles our country was built on. The Constitution, for the most part, is being ignored by our current government and we intend on working together to correct the problem.

The Tea Party effort is a grassroots, collaborative volunteer organization made up of every day American citizens from across the country. We take pride in the fact that we’ve built a 50 state network of leaders and activists using nothing more than the internet, a few websites and a burning desire to restore freedom.

While I don’t consider myself to be extremely up to date in terms of politics, I do find this ‘tea party’ idea interesting, and look forward to hearing about moms ‘adventure’, that I’ll certainly share here. Hopefully this first, and probably her last protest won’t get out of hand and have her calling diddy from the Mobile police station. I could just imagine the look on her face if that happened.

In the meantime, I thought I’d share with you a little “Tea Party” video, which I thought was kind of catchy.
