Tea Party

I hope everyone at least heard about the Tea Party's that took place all over the country. My parents told me about them just the other day and after watching a couple of them on the news I was pumped to go too! I went to the one they had here in Provo. I was honestly shocked that that many people showed up. It certainly wasnt as exciting as the ones in Texas but still a good turnout especially with the freezing cold weather and snow. 
For those of you who have NO idea what Im talking about, shame on you. Hundreds of thousands of people all over the country joined together to express their anger and opinions about how much money and control our government is using. We are quickly becoming a socialist country guys and its scary. Texas is even threatening breaking off to their own Republic again. Man I love that state. We need to fight for our money, because the government already has my children owing money and they arent even born yet. Let's write to our state electors because they are supposed to vote according to THE PEOPLE not the politics. 
Lots of people made signs, but my favorite one was the from the Tea Party I saw in San Antonio. Its the flag from the Battle Of Goliad, the second battle of the Texas Revolution. It's a picture of a red arm and a sword cutting it off. The slogan was "I'd rather cut off my right arm than live under tyranny." And as a Texan AND an American, I feel the same way! Here's some photos:
