Indianapolis Tea Party: The Statehouse

On April 15th, thousands gathered just outside the statehouse in the capitol of Indiana. “We the People” stood for our liberties and freedoms. The current tyrannical government is seeking to remove our freedoms and liberties, but we are not going to let it.

All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” —Thomas Jefferson

Indianapolis Tea Party: One of the Many Flags

The true danger is when liberty is nibbled away, for expedience, and by parts.
—Edmund Burke

Indianapolis Tea Party: People

If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led,
like sheep to the slaughter.
” —George Washington

Indianapolis Tea Party: Breezy

The “sleeping giant” has been awakened. No longer can we sit idly by—as we have for so long—and watch our freedoms be taken from us and our children. It is time to stand.

The voice of “We the Peoplemust and will be heard.

Last year, Mr. Phillips spoke at the Tea Party Rally in San Antonio,
and gave the message, “Freedom at Risk.”
This year, Mr. Joe Morecraft spoke at a Tea Party Rally;
you can listen to his message here.

    I did the same thing in my town, Emily! It’s nice to see other girls who believe in the same things as me. :) Keep spreading the word.

    While I definitely do NOT support the Tea Party Movement’s message, I do support freedom of speech. I don’t understand where these people were when our last administration were forcing our men and women to fight a needless war, or stripping the freedoms of nature and animals while our environment went downhill. I would have supported this movement a lot more had they started with the injustices of the Bush administration.

    Although I do not have time to go into detail about all the topics you brought up in your comment, I would like to address one issue of the Tea Party movement beginning just last year and not before.
    In the perfect world there is no injustice. But, we do not live live in a perfect world; we live in a fallen world. This nation has been slowly, but surely, heading towards socialism—a government system that takes away the freedoms of the people and crushes it’s own citizens while weaseling into areas that the government has no right to tamper with. Because of the stealth and sly moves of the politicians (who we the people elected), as well as the self-inflicted ignorance of the people, we left the politicians alone, thinking, “They know what they’re doing, we’ll stay out of their way.” It is our own fault that we did not stand up for our liberties years ago. Please take note of the sentence in the last paragraph of my post, “The ‘sleeping giant’ has been awakened.” Yes, it’s a pity we’re just now waking up . . . but, by God’s grace, we have been awakened.

    Amen! While I have not been able to go to a Tea Party rally, my grandfather went to one in Florida a week ago. He didn’t think there would be many people there… it’s not a big city or anything, but he was surprised to find about 3,000 people there. Praise God! I just pray that the movement will have an impact and that if/when things start to look up again and honest conservatives are in charge again, the people won’t go back to sleep!

    I think it so neat that you all participate in that. I would love to do things like that. :)

    Hi! My name is Abigail. Your blog is lovely and I really like it! Have you ever read the book “Whatever Happened to Justice?” by Richard Maybury? It’s about government and it’s really great book. It discusses the bases of law and government and it’s such an eye opener. He has several books that you would probably enjoy.
    BTW The statehouse is such a neat building!

    My in-laws went there, as well as a lot of people I go to church with. Sadly I don’t know how often protests help these days, but it is good that we are voicing our opinions and speaking up for our forefathers.

    I definitely agree with that last sentence but it just seems we’re aiming our anger at the wrong people. As a Christian, my politics are all about helping others. God walked with societies most unwanted. That’s what I want to do. I want Jesus for President!!! :)
