Tallahassee Tea Party

Today is the day, North Florida! On the Facebook event wall for today’s Tallahassee Tea Party, someone wrote in opposition, “Why would anyone who lives in Florida oppose the bailout money?” A member of my local Campaign for Liberty chapter responded with this,

Because it creates unfunded mandates once the original money is spent. Because it has strings attached and the federal government pulls them. Because we the people can’t afford it. Because the borrower is slave to the lender and the lender is China. Because borrowing money that we can’t pay back and are forcing our grandchildren who aren’t even born yet to pay it back is morally wrong. Because it creates dependency upon the federal government instead of forcing the states and ourselves to address the problems we face and work through them. Because running the printing press like this creates a hidden tax called inflation and that hits the poor hardest. Because it isn’t just money, but a groundwork for socialist programs. Because I Love Freedom. “The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in the insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding,” Brandeis. –ZC

Anger is brewing. Liberty is brewing!
