Don’t Tread on Me – Take Back the United States of America

Dont' Tread on Me

In my own way of showing support for the Tea Party, I have added a new link to the sidebar. It is in the form of the Gadsden flag; “Don’t Tread on Me”. I feel that in this day and age, that we, the people, are more and more like the Thirteen American Colonies under the thumb of an uncaring King George III, our federal government. Despite our representatives in congress and our senators, a majority of the people of this country feel that we are facing Taxation without Representation.
From the spirit of my ancestors, I declare to the federal government:
“DON’T TREAD ON ME!!”

The American Tea Party

See The American Tea Party Website.

Update:
The Tax Day Tea Party is a national collaborative grassroots effort to protest the bankrupt liberal agenda of the White House Administration and Congress. Specifically, the flawed “Stimulus Bill” and pork filled budget.
Slated for April 15th, Tax Day, in cities all across the nation, the Tax Day Tea Party will bring thousands of like valued people together to show our displeasure of our out of control federal government. See their website for locations. Check back often as this list is always changing.

    We can start turning this mess around with the few elections we are having in 2009. There will be more elections in 2010 and then, thank you Lord, 2012.

    Exercise your right to vote while you still are able. If not, you may soon be living in the United Sheiks of America.

    I wonder if we might see a third political party successfully spun out of this situation?

    I want MY country back. I have seen my wages stay flat for the last three years, my health care has gone up $80 every year, my rent is raised $100 a year. While my bank is decorating it’s bathrooms for millions of dollars out of the double digit interest rates they are charging me on my car and student loans, I am begging Walmart to hire me on at night because I don’t make enough money to put food on my table for my family working 40 hours a week. What in Gods name happened?! Our economy collapsed because some poor people are getting evicted? Really? I worked and saved for ten years, got a job in a new town with new insurance and had a massive heart attack during the “Waiting period”. I lost everything to the hospitals. No new job, no old job, most of my savings gone. [edited] me right. I am an American. I love this country. Poor people aren’t your enemies. The man trying to keep his family in his house isn’t your enemy. He is your brother. Just thank God that it’s not you. I am not the man I was was, but I am working as hard as I can. This country needs a man like Obama, a man who believes in the power of little guys like us. I believe Obama when he says he will try to rebuild the mess we are in, and I’m going to keep on working as hard as I can. Together we change things.

    i FEEL LIKE THE ABOVE. THE HELP FOR THE POOR AND SOME ARE GETTING IT THROUGH THE CHURCHES; MY CHURCH DOES HELP.

    Jesus said “come follow me and I shall give you rest.

    I believe that Jesus worked night and day. Jesus told us to Help the poor

    My Pastor is having to file bankrupcy on his house for loss of income and the so called help from Obama stimulis package for the housing crash told him if he made $500.00 more a month they would help him. if he made $500.00 more a month he wouldn’t need help. hipocracy from our goverment……. shame shame shame Obama.

    Sure, everything should go back to “normal”… back to the over-consumerist, fundamentally intolerant, god-gave-us-earth-so-we-treat-it-however-we-want-ist society.
    NO.
    I want change.
    You say you are fair yet you attack liberalism but turn a blind eye to the fact that you earn over 400% the global average salary.

    You say you are tolerant yet you openly protest against gay marriage.

    You say you respect nature yet you still dump your waste all over it. There is a serious price to pay in exchange for spending less money on goods. If it’s not global warming, then its the potential of a permanent crash of the economy.

    There is no sustainable way back, because the way society was before was not sustainable in the first place.

    ‘hipocracy from our goverment…….’ -nolans

    Hypocrite.

    Let’s not forget that the welfare system in our government is not an innocent factor in the demise of our economy. We are commanded to help the poor. Not the lazy! It’s not right that our government allows people from other countries to come to America and receive free medical care on our tax dollars. It’s not right that capable men sit at home and play video games when they should be working to support a family not suck from the government. These people are less than men in my opinion. We are to work. The bible says so.There are many jobs out there and some not so favorable, but if it means feeding a family will our pride go by the wayside and take that job or should we be less than a man rely on handouts to survive. I for one do not intend to live under the United Sheiks of America. Wake up people!! They are trying to destroy us and the government is helping them. What does the government owe to them that they are willing to sacrifice our whole country and our lives?

    I believe this country has strayed so far from the ideals it was created on, so far from the direction God would have us go… it will take an act of God (or at least God’s people acting) to see anything return to what it once was and what it could once again be.

    JHC –

    1. Christians can be tolerant of many things, but sin is not one of them. Gay Marriage IS SIN. Homosexuality in itself is SIN. The Bible doesn’t hint at this… it is explicit! We can love the sinner and still hate the sin!

    “You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.” Leviticus 18:22

    You can’t interpret abomination in too many different ways: a vile, shameful, or detestable action

    So, tolerant? No, I can’t say that I am. Not when an institution that GOD created is being basterdized and perverted into something that is 100% against God. I love the people because God has called us to love our neighbors as ourselves, but I don’t and never will love the sin they commit.

    2. God gave us this planet, and I do believe we should be good stewards of his gifts, but the degree of tree hugging insanity this country has reached is nauseating! Just because Al Gore declares that the Earth is going to melt doesn’t mean it’s true! There are as many, if not considerably more, scientists who say the Earth is in fine shape. So before you bash someone on that you might want to wait for the long term research to come out, and stop jumping on the politically correct bandwagon.

    3. I believe we should be helping our neighbors, not expecting the government to do it for us. The Bible is pretty plain that we are to help our neighbors when they are in crisis… when did the church let the government fulfill what God has told US to do? Bailouts that will burden our kids and grandkids, and likely our kids grandkids, are not the answer! God help us all if we think our sin-filled government that constantly separates itself from God will ever lead us to a promised land!

    That being said… I will be praying for you even if I don’t like what you have to say.

    Hey, I’m a British student of American history and have come across the gadsden flag academically for the first time. As a disciple of Jesus Christ, and with an awareness of Genesis 3, the flag’s imagery and slogan worry me. The thing that seems strangest is that the potential for anti-God connotations weren’t picked up in a more biblically literate age. Does anyone have any thoughts about this?

    love in the Lord,

    J
