Washington DC Tea Party

Tea Party Patriots Bringing the Conscience of America to Washington DC

Freedom’s Phoenix

 

From the ashes of decline, shall rise, a great phoenix

On the wings of American exceptionalism

A symbol of  “We the people”, republicanism

 

The founding fathers in their wisdom did greatly fear

Two very dangerous things, that more than any other,

A standing army or central bank, liberty would smother

 

The Constitution, Article 1 and the laws of the land

Were intended to protect the people from being ripped off

In refusing to be audited, the Fed and Pentagon do scoff

 

The earmarks flourish, while our Liberty shrivels

For the power and the glory of a Capitol hill few

Who blindly throw our money in the pot, as if, fixing a stew

 

We have a standing Army, in spite of our founders fear

It has its own air force, as does the Navy and its army, the Marines

All in addition to the US Air Force, flying must be in the genes

 

The Pentagon has bases galore and on nearly every shore

Duplicative programs abound, as the branches trust not each other

If this, be the case, why should we people trust one branch or another?

 

We spend nearly as much on defense as the rest of the world combined

Yet our weapons systems are aging and our troops often do suffer

As the sheer size of the DOD bureaucracy, our success does buffer

 

Put the Pentagon under scrutiny, to trim the waste, and unnecessary spending

Before financial calamity doth spark a round of indiscriminate cuts

Our security put at risk, by the unwitting in Congress or those without guts

 

We have a great Central Bank that we all know as “the Fed”

We know not what they do, for they report not to Congress

Operating audit free, cronyism run amok, part of the mess

 

They are printing new money at an alarming rate

We know not to whom they give it, only who they come to,

“We the people”, whenever, the piper’s bill doth come due.

 

 

As the founders feared, unchecked, our government has grown too big

Big enough to give to some, everything that they want and need

Big enough to take from others, all they have, down to the seed

 

There is a movement afoot, across this great land

To spread the light of truth and fiscal awareness

By bringing to bear, transparency, audits and fairness

 

It is a movement born of the spirit, the heart and soul of our great Nation

Men and women uniting with purpose, Liberty’s flame burning, in their heart

Restoring pride, honor and moral bearing that our nation, be not, torn apart

 

Won’t you please read, and join us in signing, the Pentagon Petition

Demanding of the Congress, fair and orderly cuts in the spending

Bringing all departments to the table and leaving no sacred cows pending

 

If you have had enough and are tired of watching your Country decline

Join the ranks of the patriots who are uniting and working together

To see our Republic flourish once more and our exceptionalism un-tether.

Take The Town Halls To Washington

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nationwide Tea Party Coalition - "Take The Town Halls To Washington"
MEMPHIS, Tennessee (March 5, 2010) - The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is today announcing a new project, "Take The Town Halls To Washington", which is designed to bring tea party activists to Washington, DC during the month of March to meet, question and review the positions of approximately 60 Democrat members of the House of Representatives whose vote on the pending Health Care legislation has not yet been publicly announced. Tea Party Nation is a collaborating partner in the project.
Spokesman Mark A. Skoda, who is also Chairman of The Memphis TEA Party stated, "President Obama has indicated his willingness to ignore the people and force his bill through Congress using whatever means necessary. Our objective is to bring thousands of constituents to DC to meet with their representatives, capture their comments and produce a review of those positions on a daily basis. We believe that time is of the essence and the people need to understand where these representatives stand before any vote is taken."
Organizer, Michael Patrick Leahy further stated, "After more than a year of tea party resistance to the big government efforts of the Obama Administration, it all comes down to the next 3 weeks. The Administration has made it clear. They intend to ram down the Health Care takeover through a corrupt Congress by the end of this month, in direct defiance of the clearly expressed will of the American people.”
“It is time for every tea party activist across the country to consider dropping everything he or she is doing and join us in the most important battle of our life time. We need your energy, commitment, and efforts to make this succeed. We need you to consider coming to Washington during this 3 week period, and if you can’t come to Washington, be part of this project in your local area.”
A nationwide webcast is scheduled for Tuesday, March 9, 2010 with meetings in DC scheduled to begin the following day through March 31, 2010. Logistics are being coordinated for those coming to Washington and daily briefings and reviews are scheduled during the project. It is expected that visits will take place while Congress is in session from Monday through Friday.
The Nationwide Tea Party Coalition is an informal federation of thirty local tea parties from around the country who work collaboratively on important national projects. It was the group that organized the February 27, 2009 “Nationwide Chicago Tea Party” in 51 cities around the country that launched the Tea Party Movement, as well as the April 15, 2009 Tax Day Tea Party, where 1 million tea party activists attended events in over 900 cities.
