Don’t Tread On Me
SAN ANTONIO, TX.- Miles de personas se reunieron junto al monumento del Alamo en nuestra ciudad con el proposito de enviar basicamente cuatro mensajes al gobierno en la capital de la nación.
Algunos dijeron que fueron 16,000 personas otras dicen que fueron 20,000 las que asistieron para escuchar nuevas ideas.
Todo comenzo el pasado 16 de Diciembre de 1773: "The Boston Tea Party Happened…, to send King George III a message: ‘No Taxation without representation’."
Luego continuaron y el 23 de Febrero de 1836, comenzo con la Batalla del Alamo para enviarle un mensaje al presidente mexicano Antonio López de Santa Anna: "Don’t Mess With Texas"
Sometimes… History must repeat itself… On April 15th, 2009… The Home of the Alamo. Will again raise her voice… With other cities across the United States…
Using our Free Speech… To send a Four Word Message to washington…
Join Us As We Tell Washington…

Un ministro del Evangelio, el Pastor Servando Avelar nos comunicó sobre la proximidad del evento y al finalizar quedo muy contento con las palabras que alli se expresaron que coinciden con su forma de pensar tanto de él como la de unos amigos y colaboradores de varios años en su lucha por instaurar varias de las ideas alli expresadas.
"Ahora no estoy solo como yo creía, ahora somos miles"
¿Que fue lo que le impacto Pastor? Primero que estan sujetos bajo la soberanía de Dios y reconocen a Jesucristo como nuestro Señor. Que hoy se dio el primer paso para organizarnos masivamente. Hoy se dio un parteaguas, hoy se hablara del futuro y del ayer. Hoy se inicio una revolución pacífica en contra del dispendio del gobierno que desde hace mucho tiempo esta endeudando a nuestros hijos y a nuestra descendencia en general.
Glenn Beck alias "Mr. Happy Pants," trabaja para un medio de comunicación local y fue uno de los principales promotores del evento. "are fed up with the nonsense in Washington," Beck said.
Beck, naturally, wants to be part of the ruckus, so he’s coming to "the only place in America where I think it makes sense," he said, "the Alamo." Beck’s show airs from 4 to 5 p.m. on Fox News Channel.
Eric Adam, the media correspondent for the SA Tea Party, "We’re tired of the government spending all our money," Adam said of the tea party’s message. "We’re not anti-Obama, we’re not anti-Republican or anti-Democrat, we’re anti-arrogance. We don’t approve of the fact that the government thinks we’re stupid."
9 Principles 9/12 Project
1. America Is Good.
2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life. God “The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.” from George Washington’s first Inaugural address.
3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday. Honesty “I hope that I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider to be the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.” George Washington
4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government. Marriage/Family “It is in the love of one’s family only that heartfelt happiness is known. By a law of our nature, we cannot be happy without the endearing connections of a family.” Thomas Jefferson
5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it. Justice “I deem one of the essential principles of our government… equal and exact justice to all men of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political.” Thomas Jefferson
6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results. Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness “Everyone has a natural right to choose that vocation in life which he thinks most likely to give him comfortable subsistence.” Thomas Jefferson
7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable. Charity “It is not everyone who asketh that deserveth charity; all however, are worth of the inquiry or the deserving may suffer.” George Washington
8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion. On your right to disagree “In a free and republican government, you cannot restrain the voice of the multitude; every man will speak as he thinks, or more properly without thinking.” George Washington
9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me. Who works for whom? “I consider the people who constitute a society or a nation as the source of all authority in that nation.” Thomas Jefferson

Tax Day Tea Party
The Tax Day Tea Party is a national collaborative grassroots effort organized by Smart Girl Politics, Top Conservatives on Twitter, the DontGo Movement and many other online groups/coalitions.
The Tea Party protests, in their current form, began in early 2009 when Rick Santelli, the On Air Editor for CNBC, set out on a rant to expose the bankrupt liberal agenda of the White House Administration and Congress. Specifically, the flawed “Stimulus Bill” and pork filled budget.
During Rick’s rant (see video below), he called for a “Chicago tea Party” where advocates of the free-market system could join in a protest against out of control government spending.
A few days later, grassroots activists and average Joe Americans began organizing what would soon become the Nationwide Chicago Tea Party effort.
On February 27th, an estimated 30,000 Americans took to the street in 40+ cities accross the country in the first nationwide “Tea Party” protest.
Organizers of the February 27th events pledged to continue on with an even bigger and better protest to follow the first. With April 15th being “Tax Day”, it was decided to schedule the second round of Tea Party protests to ride alongside the tax deadline.
And with that, the “Tax Day Tea Party”, the second round of the Nationwide Tea Party protests, moved into reality.
