Since it’s Valentine’s Day, I’ll make this short and sweet. . . .
Check out the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Associationand support Prop 13 (for all of you California Residents). Founded in 1978, this organization is California’s largest taxpayer rights organization. Committed to opposing new taxes and defending Prop. 13. California is in for a rough 4 years, so it’s great to have an organization watching the bottom line, even if the Governor Brown and Sacramento aren’t.
If you’re all about lower taxes and smaller government, this is a group to check out. I follow them on facebook so I can see their updates, and you can find their twitter page here. On their website you’ll find press releases, legislative updates and studies and reports. If you’re not in California, I’m sure there is a similar organization in your state that will provided you with pertinent tax related information. It’s great to stay informed and involved. It’s our money, our future and our bottom line, and we shouldn’t expect the government to ever look out for our interests.

As you well know, in 1773, colonists gathered to dump imported tea into the Boston Harbor to protest the British government’s oppressive tax system that allowed for no direct representation. At the Boston Tea Party, determined colonists stood against the expanding British authority and said no more!
Taxed Enough Already??? I should say so…..
Expanding government authority… sound familiar?
Are you tired of bailouts, stimulus packages, endless national debt and increasing subsidization? Do you practice financial responsibility and watch those who do not get rewarded by the government? Along with many other Americans, are you frustrated by our government reaching its hand out to take far more than it needs?
Are you tired of politicians who:
vote for a $500 billion tax bill without even reading it?
waste your tax dollars on foolish stimulus projects?
are spending trillions of borrowed dollars?
do not care about the national debt that our children and grandchildren will have to pay?
admit to using the financial hurt of millions as an opportunity to push their political agenda?
run up trillions of dollars of debt and then sell that debt to countries such as China?
want government controlled health care?
appoint a defender of child pornography to the Number 2 position in the Justice Department?
want to force doctors and other medical workers to perform abortions against their will?
want to impose a carbon tax on your electricity, gas and home heating fuels?
want to reduce your tax deductibility for charitable gifts?
give special interest groups billions of dollars in earmarks to help get themselves re-elected?
If so, join thousands of Americans on Tax Day, April 15th, at your local Tax Day Tea Party to express your frustration over our out of control government and its redistributive economic policies.Whether you are Democrat or Republican, conservative or liberal, all are welcome in this stand against unrestrained government. This true grassroots movement is spreading with Tea Parties planned across the nation.
