Rudy, You don't have to agree, bu most scholars agree that the D of I (as you refer to it) was the first legislative act of our Founders. But even if it wasn't, it surly was a statement of how they viewed government and it is logical that they would carry it forward.

Once again you dodge the issue and answer the question you want to answer, not the issue posed. The true issue is 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?

I urge you to do the same. Under our Constitution, what authority does the President have to fire the CEO of a private company? None. What authority does the Secretary of the Treasury (member of the Executive Branch) have to spend the TARP funds when only the Congress can spend money? None. What authority does the Congress have to legislate – after the fact – that bonuses cannot be given (a Bill of Attainder) when Article I, Section 9 states "No bill of attainder or ex post facto law shall be passed?" None.

The list goes on and on. It seems like our government blatantly violates the law and they are spending money like a drunken sailor. And this is with all due respect to drunken sailors because they at least spend their own money. At a million dollars a day it will take over 27,000 years to pay the principle (interest not included) on our future 10 Trillion dollar debt! This is what we are protesting. Creating dumb legislation might get our elected officials defeated in the next election, but doing it without authority is inexcusable.

Again, join us at the next Tea Party in Poth on June 14th (Flag Day). It might enlighten you.
