Stand up for America Tomorrow: Tax Revolt Day

Tomorrow, on Tax Revolt Day, I will be standing on the site of my 2nd great-grandfather's Atlanta farm. In 1824, Archibald Holland owned all of downtown Atlanta. He drew 202-1/2 acres in the land lottery. Imagine that! His home was located on Capitol Avenue where his first son was born. His struggles were like so many persons who took up the challenge to build a life in America and opened the door to the prosperity of future generations. Sure, the dirt road has been paved over and State buildings occupy the landscape, but the fact remains that my ancestor helped to build a community out of the wilderness. Just like your ancestors fought to uphold freedom, religious tolerance and the Constitution of the United States of America. They gave their sons to the Revolutionary War to fight against an oppressive tax by the British and obtained freedom. Again, they rallied during the War of 1812. Likewise, their sons fought in the War Between the States which was started against the North because of oppressive taxes and tariffs to Southern planters and ended in freeing slaves. Lest we forget World War I and II? Now, our boys fight a vicious terrorist regime whose motto is to "kill the infidel".

Since the election of Obama, our country has been under assault from within. Our representatives are not truthful or honest. For those of you on medicare insurance, your premium will soon be tripled to $283.00 per month. Not a decrease, as promised, but more and more and more. Today, our Congress and Senate "mandates" and "dictates". They operate behind closed doors and pass laws which pad their own pockets. They are in the process of passing an array of taxes on everything that we do. Unfortunately, the government has access to all of our personal information, from 1099s, W-2, 401K's, bank accounts, everything that we do. In the past, this was okay because we had reasonable representation. But today, we have a bunch of dishonorable and dishonest rats in Washington who pass laws behind closed doors. And so on and so on.

I hope that everyone will remember how hard our ancestors fought for our freedom and attend the Annual Tax Day Revolt rally in your own city. And please, remember the mid-term elections. What we do today will determine what happens to our children tomorrow.
