Can you believe it's been one year since the tea party movement began? I remember sitting in front of the television day after day watching political heads march out to the cameras while the stock market went down, down, down.
Thanks to Mr. Rick Santelli for standing up on cable television and saying what many Americans were thinking. Day after day, citizens of this great country were seeing their stocks drop in January 2009 and were screaming for the media to stand up and say, "Enough is Enough", "We've had it" but they never did. WE THE PEOPLE had to do it. We've allowed our high taxes to occur for years, spending keeps sky rocketing and jobs are being lost each day. When Rick Santelli stood up a year ago, nothing has been the same since. Thousands upon thousands have marched in small town, cities and in Washington, D.C. to display the largest show of protests on Washington to ever occur surpassing the inauguration of America's first black president.
In 2010, we are seeing a revealing of a ominous abuse of political power to force us to have government health insurance that we do not wish to have in Universal Healthcare. We know the deck is stacked against us in this matter.
Thanks Mr. Santelli for waking us up to all that is happening in our country and to the Constitution. Mr. Santelli is now considered the 'father' of the tea party movement.
