Four years ago Rick Santelli’s words calling for a Tea Party started a movement in America!! Ten days later #breaktheirbones Geoff Ludt started the Oregon Tea Party with our first Tea Party in Downtown Portland. Tea was poured into the Willamette River the cries of FREEDOM! were heard and thus began a movement.
“The government is promoting bad behavior. In terms of modifications I’ll tell you I have an idea, …why don’t we put it up for a vote on the internet to see if we want to subsidize the losers’ mortgages or would we like to buy cars, buy houses in forclosure, and give them to people who might have the chance to prosper down the road and reward people who can carry the water instead of drink the water. …This is America! How many of you people want to pay for your neighbors’ mortgage that has an extra bathroom and can’t pay their bills? (noooooo) President Obama ARE YOU LISTENING?!!! We’re thinking of having a Chicago Tea Party in July!”
