The time for a new Boston Tea Party has arrived
By Sher Zieve
March 16, 2009

In 2006 and 2007, I wrote columns about the original Boston Tea Party and the reason it was affected by many of our ancestors. At the time, the columns concerned illegal immigration and I observed "the Boston Tea Party, which is considered to be the catalyst for the revolution leading to American independence from Great Britain, was affected under far less tyrannical actions than are now being waged by Congress against the American people." During this time period, We-the-People found out about the predominantly covert Amnesty and 'US-citizens-to-pay-even-more-for-illegals' portions of these bills and called their US Senators and Congressional Reps and shouted "NO!" Congress finally stopped its attempts to pass a bill giving the US illegal alien population more rights than US citizens. Today, however, it's a different story.

Having learned that it will not get its own way if it listens to the American people, Congress and the (now) Executive branch of the US government created situations to both commandeer monies from the US economy (we-the-taxpayers money) and to bypass the will of US citizens. Congress and Obama called their theft of our wealth an $800B+ "stimulus bill." This bill passed despite a great hue and cry from the American people against it and shortly thereafter Congress passed another spending bill of $400B+. In the greatest financial and power grab in US if not world history, we now know with a fair amount of certainty that the only ones being 'stimulated' are members of the legislative and executive branches of government and their pals.

Although a multitude of calls were made by We-the-People to the US House of Representatives and Senate, the liberal/leftist faction of government (the faction that is now running said government) is no longer listening. Instead, Congressional members are in the process of seizing the wealth from we who actually worked for it in order to redistribute it to themselves, their families and friends and a small portion to those who did NOT work for it the latter to ensure votes for the welfare givers. This is what both Socialism and Communism bring a two-class system. They bring the Elite and Powerful Class (the one with all of our money) and the elite-weakened and impoverished Proletariat (worker) Class. The ones ushering this sea change in are the ones who were voted into their ruling positions. Did those of you who voted for Obama and his congressional friends realize that the secular messiah actually meant what he said?

Having gotten away with the last two quickly passed bills without so much as a march by the people on Washington D.C. Congress has become even more emboldened in its desire and willingness to steal. Sadly but, as I predicted months ago Congress is now talking about passing another huge "stimulus bill" in order to confiscate more of our money. Our leftist-run Congress is also in process of nationalizing every industry it can. It has started with banks, has moved to take over investment houses, has largely taken over the auto industry and has hinted at its interest in oil and gas. All other major industries will not be far behind. As I've mentioned before, if we continue to allow this to occur all we need do is look to Hugo Chavez' Venezuela to see our future.

Many of us have now seen the light and over 150 'tea parties' around the country have been reported. However, these appear to largely be those who saw it before the last election. Unlike the Boston Tea Party which was affected at real bodily risk to the participants, although many are reported as being over 4,000 people some are being held in comfortable private homes. Folks, our government representatives are no longer listening to us and the 'vote' has become a joke to be shared by those who will never willingly again give up their power. They are already stealing all of our wealth and liberals and leftists under Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder are in the process of effectively removing the Second Amendment. In other words, Congress and the Executive Branch will very soon leave us with no means to fight back. Do you truly want to let them? As I said before "how long Congress' current coup against US citizens will remain bloodless is a matter of speculation." Do we want freedom or captivity? It's your choice.

Boston Tea Party:

1. Does amnesty mean more taxation without representation?:

2. Senate votes to include amnesty for felons:
