Rudy, Iím on a business trip in northern Virginia and just checked in. You should be with me because I'm because Iím very close to Washington, DC, the epicenter of our massive government that you seem to be so fond of. Reading though all of your ramblings, I think I understand your point. But you certainly donít understand the views of the Tea Party participants.

For one thing, I did not say that taxes were dumb. I said income taxes were dumb. I agree there is a need for taxes just as the Constitution agrees there is a need for taxes.

I must also say that your vision of government is very different than the Founders. I'm sure you have read the following from our Declaration, "That to secure these rights (God given, enumerated inalienable rights) governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed." The Founders believed that governments were only instituted to protect our inalienable rights. And that the only powers the government had came from the consent of the governed. That kind of a government would treat all equally, not some more equally than others. Also, please read Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution. This section grants the government the right to raise revenue via taxes, but the interesting thing is that "all duties, imposts, and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States." This says that income taxes (prior to the 16th Amendment which has an awful lot of unanswered questions) and in particular progressive taxes were not allowed. All are created equal and all support the government equally.

Finally, the majority of what our current government is doing is not authorized or supported by the Constitution. The Tea Party attendees are simply asking by what authority is our current Congress and Government acting? Come out to the Tea Parties. You might learn something. But one thing is certain, if you do attend the next Tea Party, youíll meet some mighty neat people.
