700 Tea Party Protests: Indianapolis 15000, Atlanta 20000, San Antonio 20000, Sacramento 20000….

FBN reports that 700 cities and towns had “Tea Party” protests yesterday protesting out of control government spending, more taxes, redistribution of wealth and bigger government.

Leftists are saying that 95% of Americans got a tax cut (which averaged to $13 a paycheck for working people) so they are acting on misinformation. They leave out that Obama has said that his energy tax plan “will necessarily make electricity costs skyrocket” and that his plan will raise the cost of heating and lighting an average home up to $1400 a year. This leaves out the part of that tax that will hit us all in the form of  higher prices from the tax. This also leaves out that the stimulus bill comes with so many expensive strings attached that in 20 months when the stimulus funds for the states run out the states will have to raise taxes to fund them.

They also leave out the taxes and other problems that we will have to face because of this level of spending.

While many Hoosiers went to Indianapolis, South Bend was expecting 100 people and the police said that over 300 showed up. Other local communities had protests as well.

Pictures are from South Bend, Salt Lake City and San Antonio. Notice the sign about Republican Senator Kay Baily Hutchinson? With half of the Republican leadership that deciding to be the “right wing party of big corrupt government” as opposed to most of the Democratic leadership that has decided to be the “left wing party of big corrupt government”; it is fortunate that much of that bad leadership in the GOP was thrown out of office.

One message that was loud and clear at the protests was that while “Republican Principles” may not be a huge problem “Unprincipled Republicans” are. Another message that was clear from protesters who voted for Obama was also appearent’ “while we understood that when we voted for Obama that government would grow, we had no idea it would be this much or like this” and as more people get informed on what has been going on the more those ranks will swell. Polls already have shown that Obama has already lost support form independents who voted for him. Expect a new post soon telling about how the Tea Party protesters made it clear that some Republicans have responsibility to bear for the mess we are in.

Here is a teaser – The Tea Party organizer ripped the California GOP Chairman to pieces from the podium via Michelle Malkin – LINK. And by the way, Charles Gibson of ABC and others spun it as an Obama hate rally.
