TAX DAY - APRIL 15TH

On April 15th, tax day, protesters nationwide will have tea parties to argue for an end to big government, increased deficit spending, and the Obama Administration.

The inspiration for the tea parties came after CNBC host Rick Santelli, who complained about President Obama’s bailout, called for a new Tea Party.

The grassroots movement, publicly pushed by conservative media and officially endorsed by the Republican Party, was organized by COMMUNITY ORGANIZERS. How ironic, since it was the Republicans who dismissed the work of COMMUNITY ORGANIZERS during their presidential convention.

I guess Republicans feel it is okay to associate with COMMUNITY ORGANIZERS when they are criticizing the Obama Administration, but as a COMMUNITY ORGANIZER, I wouldn’t want to be associated with the Republican Party.

Hi Maragam Ragam,

I'm doing well. How are you?

In the US you have the same situation. People don't like paying taxes but we understand taxes fund social programs and infrastructure projects.

In my opinion, there were two types of protesters demostrating at the tea parties. There were protesters who may have been sincere about the anti-tax sentiments,and they are equally upset at the both the Republicans and Democrats. Then, there were the conservatives who just wanted to protest the Obama Aministration.

The conservatives are playing politics because they didn't protest the Bush Administration handling of the economy.

I hate the political games that is played because it doesn't solve anything. My mother has always told me, "If you're not going to be part of the solution then don't be part of the problem."

Some of our politicans have been in Washington too long. They are set in their ways. They can't accept the world has changed and continues to change. They are afraid of change.
