  • Citizens,

    If you believe in reason and rational thought, please, I beg you to give me three minutes. What I am about to say has nothing to do with any particular issue; it has nothing to do with any particular party affiliation; it has nothing to do with any particular candidate currently running for public office; it has EVERYTHING to do with YOU. If you can put all of the aforementioned aside, then you will understand.

    On March 23rd, 2010, the President of the United States signed a bill into law, granting the federal government, and all of its enforcement powers, the ability to decide what YOU the citizen, must purchase. Not only must you purchase said good, you must only purchase the good that is approved by them. The “them” that I am referring to, is the institution of the United States government, and all their enforcement powers. Another way to say it would be, “you will purchase what I want you to purchase, and if you don’t: I will fine you.” Now, what that means, is that the federal government, and all its powers of enforcement, can now decide what you will buy, according to their standards, along with the ability under law, to seize your goods. These goods consist of anything that is of value to them, with regard to you being able to pay your fine. There are no distinctions.

    This amounts to a federal tax, that the government now has the power to levy upon us, based on what they believe, you will and will not purchase. That is why this is about YOU! Were you given the opportunity to express your dissent, based upon your rights, laid out in the Constitution? By their own admission, this bill was forced through the process against the will of the people.

    I will now point you to the Bill of Rights; Amendment One, Amendment Four, Amendment Eight, Amendment Nine, and Amendment Ten. And I will implore you to please read them for yourself.

    When you see the craziness that is going on right now, on all sides, please realize that this is not about any of the nonsense that you are witnessing. And whether you are a democrat, republican, independent, tea party, libertarian, green party, etc., you surely remember enough history to know what the phrase “taxation without representation” means. You surely understand what the term “legal precedent” means. You surely understand why the Bill of Rights is there. You surely understand what a “restraining order” means. And this, my fellow citizens, is what the Tea Party is truly all about.

    Your vote is also a right that you possess as a citizen of the United States of America, and protected by the Constitution as well – it is not to be exercised lightly. On November 2nd, cast your vote freely, and remember all of the rights that are granted to YOU. This is not about what the government wants - this is about what YOU want. This is about what I want. And together, what we want. “We the People.”

    If you still want to argue with me about this candidate and that party, then there is truly nothing more that I can offer you. I sincerely hope that is not the case. Now is the time, for all good men and women, to come to the aid of their country.


    Samuel Joe Voiles,

    Citizen of the United States of America
