Today is tax day. Whoo hoo! Or not… I’m only putting up a brief post this morning because I want everyone out there to keep an eye on their local media to see if the “Tea Parties” are covered. Some of the major cable news channels have been talking for a while about how Americans of all political parties will be taking part in “Tea Parties” today to protest the growing feeling of taxation without representation.
Granted, I don’t think that we are taxed without being represented, but we are definitely subjected to expenses (i.e. uses of our tax dollars) with which the majority of Americans would disagree. For example, when there is poverty in America, I’m confident that a majority of Americans would support using tax dollars to alleviate American poverty before alleviating poverty in other countries. That’s a random example, I know.
Anyway, keep an eye on the media to see if they have any coverage of these “Tea Party” events.
