"I spent weeks making homemade signs for the Tax Day Tea Parties - the protests against rising taxes and spending.

'No taxation without deliberation', 'Save trees, stop printing money', 'Liberty is all the stimulus we need'.

Obama has emboldened the far Left. They diminish the spirit of free speech and religion.

I am concerned our political rights are dying. What will replace them?

The Bill of Rights will not survive four years under Obama's leadership with this Congress.

I'm very worried about terrorism and renewed attacks on our troops as well as innocent travellers.

Three American journalists are in jail in Iran and North Korea. Despots target American citizens as bargaining tools whenever we have a president who agrees to talk with illegitimate leaders.

I just thought of another sign: 'Throw the Bums Out!' "
