The Boston Tea Party was an act of direct protest by American Colonists demanding representation in the British Government. They became known as the original patriots.
The Chicago Tea Party of 2009 will reinvigorate that American and Patriotic spirit; one that demands respect for individual rights and property. As the bailouts spiral out of control, we are forced to fund failed banks. With foreclosures on the rise, we are made the collateral of reckless spending. And, when the bills come due, the IRS knocks on the door of “self-responsibility”.
Our founders have stopped rolling over in their graves. After months of tossing and turning, we have finally taken back the banner of hope that has been hijacked by the “do-good” saviors.
Statist sympathizers call us cynics; those who complain without answers of our own. They call us “selfish”, implying that funding failure is altruistic. While America was founded on those who do, they ask us to submit to those who can’t.
On December 16, 1773, the original Patriots put their lives on the line. With an envelope, a stamp, and a bag of tea, millions of Americans can send a peaceful message; our lives have value.
On April 1st, our establishment will know that our freedom to succeed can no longer be sacrificed at the risk of our future.
With sincerity and respect, we ask that you join us on April 1st, 2009, in sending the Oval Office a Tea Bag, in honor of the party in Boston on December 16, 1773, and in anticipation of its nationwide symbolic re-enactment in the summer of 2009.
If you have had enough, please submit your pledge to send Washington a Tea Bag on April 1st by using the pledge form in the right sidebar.

March 21st Tea Party Organizational Meet-Up
Balboa Park (Right Next To Founder’s Plaza at El Prado and 6th Ave.)
Saturday, March 21st, 12:30pm
Who We Are: We are concerned citizens just like everyone else that have had enough of government waste, corruption, and intrusion into our daily lives. We are non-partisan, directing our angst not at a particular party or person, but at the collective failures of our entire congress to follow and uphold the Constitution. We are devoted to making a difference and get our elected representatives to listen to our voice.
Glenn Bleck explains how the “rich” float the tab for all the freeloaders, mooches, deadbeats, slackers, lazy bums, and “octo-moms”, in addition to the relative few people that we should actually be helping. But what happens when those “rich” people are all gone?
As passion builds for the freedom movement, Tea Party organizers have popped up all over the internet. There are Tea Parties on a variety of dates, organized by a number of different individuals and organizations, spreading passion throughout our communities. Yet, in order to make this movement the success that it should and will be, we must combine and coordinate our efforts. After launching www.ReTeaParty.com just hours after our young web team was inspired by the infamous “rant”, thousands of comments and e-mails in support of the Chicago July 4th Tea Party flooded our inbox.
Since that time, we have been excited and pleased with the level of optimism, desire, and understanding of the real problems that face this country. During that time, other organizations and individuals have set up their own Tea Parties and events. A few more well funded and established organizations have even run with our original idea to send Washington D.C. a Tea Bag on April 1st, to protest the foolishness of D.C. policy making and are planning another nationwide Tea Party on Tax Day, April 15th, 2009. We are supportive of their efforts and are organizing our plans to participate as individuals in their event.
