Where is your Tea Party?

Have you heard of the Tax Day Tea Party?  It's a way for US as Americans.. Not Republican, Democrats, Independents, ect.. but as Americans to stand up and demand our country back.  Demand that we reclaim what our nation was founded on.. Demand that our rights are not taken away.. Demand that we do not keep spending money that we can't afford....   These Tea Parties are literally popping up everywhere across this country.  This is not just a one time event.. these Tea Parties are too show that Americans are united and won't give our country to "the world".  Our Constitution was written for a reason.. not to be stomped on.. and changed.  Do you realize there are people in office with the purpose to form a board of UN lawyers that would sit over the United States?  So The "BUCK" wouldn't stop with United States of America but with the board of lawyers.  We have some serious serious issues right now in country.. some things are happening so fast..that Americans don't even realize what we are losing.  

If you are interested in a peaceful rally.. a rally where you can feel united..with like minded people who have a desire to keep our country whole, then click HERE to find out where and when your rally will take place next week on the 15th.  I think it's time we all take a stand.. don't you? 

You can also read more about going back to the basics of America at the 912 project.

The Principles and Values below are taken from the 912 project page.

9 Principles

1.America Is Good.
2.I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.
God “The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the external rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.” from George Washington’s first Inaugural address.
3.I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.
Honesty “I hope that I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider to be the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.” George Washington
4.The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.
Marriage/Family “It is in the love of one’s family only that heartfelt happiness is known. By a law of our nature, we cannot be happy without the endearing connections of a family.” Thomas Jefferson
5.If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
Justice “I deem one of the essential principles of our government… equal and exact justice to all men of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political.” Thomas Jefferson
6.I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness “Everyone has a natural right to choose that vocation in life which he thinks most likely to give him comfortable subsistence.” Thomas Jefferson
7.I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.
Charity “It is not everyone who asketh that deserveth charity; all however, are worth of the inquiry or the deserving may suffer.” George Washington
8.It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.
On your right to disagree “In a free and republican government, you cannot restrain the voice of the multitude; every man will speak as he thinks, or more properly without thinking.” George Washington
9.The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.
Who works for whom? “I consider the people who constitute a society or a nation as the source of all authority in that nation.” Thomas Jefferson

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
