If not you … then who? The time is now! If at all possible please take some time THIS FRIDAY (details below) to send a message to the politicians and the community that big government is unsustainable! Special interests have been using disruption and intimidation to prevent responsible changes to the old ways of government as usual . . . where vote buying special interests win at the expense of the majority of tax payers. Don’t let them have such sway. Stand up and be counted!
We know it is a workday but many of us can still take time from our duties or stop by on our lunch hour. Retirees can make a statement that they do not want future generations, their children and grand children, burdened by unsustainable debt. Make a sign or just stand in solidarity sending a message that “robbing Peter to pay Paul” is not what this country was founded to do! No bull horns please but this is a time for voiced good cheer.! Please send this to your list, call your friends and ask them to attend. Our message is being lost to the special interest pleadings disruptions and even threats. TEA Party activists from Illinois are also making plans to go to Springfield this Friday as well. That is very important. This message and this opportunity is intended for those who cannot make that trip. We wish them Godspeed!

“IT’S THE SPENDING STUPID!”
TAX DAY TEA PARTY
Friday April 15th
Noon to – 2:00 PM
Fourth and Main Streets Downtown Davenport
“Rain or shine”
Purpose: — sidewalk demonstration and office visit
“Conveniently located” near the offices of Congressman Bruce Braley and not far from the offices of Senator Chuck Grassley
Statement from organizers:
The intent of the demonstration is to lend voice to the need to get the tax and spend and deficit spending mentality under control. Reasonable budget proposals are on the table and should be supported. Unless spending gets under control younger generations will experience crushing debt (if not bankruptcy), a declining economy and high joblessness. The tax burdens are too high for a weak economy. The regulatory system is incredibly complicated. Both are job killers slowing economic recovery. The big government nanny state is not only unsustainable it is no substitute for strong stable families and more personal responsibility.
THE SPECIAL INTEREST HOLD ON TOO MANY POLITICIANS NEEDS TO END!
“We are not anti-government . . . we are anti- an overpowering big government . . . because a government big enough to ‘give’ everything people want is big enough to take whatever people have.”
