In a growing trend all around the country, thousands of angry citizens are taking to the street in protest of President Obama’s out of control spending and march toward socialism. The latest protest happened today in Cincinnati, Ohio and drew an estimated 4,000 people according to police. We can all thank CNBC reporter Rick Santelli for his rant against Obama and inspiration to begin demonstrating publicly against Obama’s policies which reward failure and punish the rest of us.
CINCINNATI — Thousands of Tri-State residents gathered Sunday on Fountain Square in downtown Cincinnati to voice their opposition to government spending bills recently signed by President Barack Obama.
The group called itself the Cincinnati Tea Party, modeled after the Boston Tea Party of 1773.
Many of the demonstrators carried signs with slogans that said, “Honk if I’m paying your mortgage” or “Stop spending my allowance.” Some even wore tea bags on their hats to make their point.
Cincinnati police estimated the crowd at 4,000 people. Many who spoke with News 5 Sunday afternoon said they’re angry, including Rep. Jean Schmidt.
“I bet there’s 5,000 people here and they’re mad, just as I’m mad. They have a right to be mad at the unbridled spending that’s happening in Washington,” said Schmidt.
Protesters argued that the government shouldn’t be spending money it doesn’t have and they fear taxes and deflation will follow.
“The money you have now will be worth half as much next year, if they keep spending this money. They’ve got to stop spending this money,” said Mike Sparks.
Protestors signed a petition rejecting the stimulus package. Organizers said they planned to gather again on April 15 and march the petition to city hall.
Hooray for these people that they aren’t afraid to speak against The One. People aren’t going to sit idly by Obama and the Democrats in congress march us to socialism and cause horrendous inflation.
Their feelings are mirrored around the country by everyone who pays their mortgage and didn’t overspend yet is now paying pay irresponsibility. Furthermore, those of us who rent are even more ticked off since we chose to rent rather than buy a home we couldn’t afford yet we’re now paying someone else’s mortgage because they lived beyond their means.
There have been dozens of these “Tea Parties” around the country in the last couple months and they’re only growing every month. I applaud their efforts and hope it increases in size and volume.
