Taxes apply to all races; stop spending

T.E.A. “Taxed Enough Already” parties were not about race, creed, color or religious affiliation.

They were about all Americans who will have their taxes go up because of the spending by our Congress, urged by our President, to bailout the companies who should have just gone bankrupt.

Our tax dollars are for government operations, not for bailouts of large companies who were not wise in their operations.

If the situation had been left alone by our government and we let the companies go bankrupt, then it would all have eventually worked itself out. If I needed to go bankrupt, the government would certainly not bail me out.

I’d have to follow the “rules” of taking care of myself by the laws of the land. We already have to work for five months before we start working for ourselves, as five months or more of our earnings go for taxes. I hope this letter sets the matter straight.
