March on Washington

I got this email today.

Dear Kristen,
More than ever before, we need your help. On September 12th, 2009, NTU is co-organizing what we hope will be the largest demonstration that Washington, DC has seen in a long time: the 9/12 March on Washington! We need you to be there, and add your voice to thousands of others fighting to turn our government around.

You've been hearing a lot of bad news recently: a $1 trillion government takeover of health care, a $2 trillion national energy tax disguised as "cap-and-trade," a $787 billion so-called "stimulus" package, a $700 billion bailout of Wall Street, a Congress that drafts 1,500-page bills nobody has the time to read. The list goes on and on.

But there's good news as well: taxpayers all across the country are standing up and pushing back against this unprecedented expansion in the size and scope of the federal government! You've seen people rallying at Tea Parties and asking tough questions at Congressional town hall meetings on TV. Maybe you've even been to a few yourself. Now it's time to bring the Tea Party movement to Washington, DC!

If you want to visit the nation's capital and raise your voice in support of limited government, please join NTU and thousands of Americans just like you at the 9/12 March on Washington! There are events all weekend, culminating in a march down Pennsylvania Avenue to our big rally on the West Front of the United States Capitol Building. Thousands of people have already signed up, the event is completely free, and it will send a clear and unmistakable message to our politicians: STOP! Stop spending money we don't have, stop raising our taxes, and stop making our mammoth government even bigger!

If you're frustrated about the direction politicians are taking, then please join us on 9/12! We'll need every person we can muster to help turn things around. Please visit the 9/12 website for details -- see you there!
Your NTU Grassroots Action Team
P.S. -- Whether you can attend or not, please pass this message on to everyone you know. Thank you!
