    Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed
    The Declaration of Independence?

    Five signers were captured by the British as traitors

    and tortured before they died.

    Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.

    Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army;

    another had two sons captured.

    Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or

    hardships of the Revolutionary War.

    They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes,

    and their sacred honor.

    What kind of men were they?

    Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists.

    Eleven were merchants.

    Nine were farmers and large plantation owners…

    men of means…well educated…

    but they signed the Declaration of Independence

    knowing full well that the penalty would be

    death if they were captured.

    Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader,

    saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy.

    He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.

    Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British

    that he was forced to move his family almost constantly.

    He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding.

    His possessions were taken from him,

    and poverty was his reward.

    Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer,

    Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.

    At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the

    British general, Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters.

    He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire.

    The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.

    Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed.

    The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.

    John Hart was driven from his wife’s bedside as she lay dying.

    Their 13 children fled for their lives.

    His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste.

    For more than a year he lived in forests and caves,

    returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished.

    Remember…FREEDOM IS NEVER FREE!

    We The People Stimulus Package
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jeYscnFpEyA

    Require that all laws that apply to the rest of the country to equally apply to congress.

    Repeal Congresses right to vote for their own raises.

    Balance the Federal Budget.

    Force your legislatures to do what you now have to do, live within your means. If you don’t, you are committing national suicide.

    Make congress pay into the social security system. They make laws for it. Now they might be interested in thinking twice about before they allow 20 million illegal aliens to reap the benefits of the retirement programs legal citizens have paid into all their lives.

    Long term power corrupts. Limit congress from serving more than two terms. That’s all you give your president.

    Let them search for their won 401K plans instead of the gross unfairness of awarding them their full salary for the rest of their lives after serving only one term.

    Stop paying for law makers insurance premiums. After all they are only PT employees. They might pass some laws on insurance companies if they had to find one themselves.

    Throw out of office every congressman and woman who didn’t bother to read the biggest spending bill in history before voting for it.

    With the money you save from all of the above, put it into increased salary and benefits for the men and women of the armed forces. They never fail you.

    Start no war unless you intend to win it.

    Make English the official language of America.

    You talk of United we Stand but do nothing to make it happen.

    Give every legal immigrant a chance to succeed. Not one cent of taxpayer money for illegal aliens.

    We are a nation of laws and do not reward lawbreakers.
    Abolish the electoral college and put the election of the president back in the hands of “We the People.”

    Bring back universal service. 2 years in the military or 2 years in community involvement.

    Insure your future.
    Rekindle the spirit of America…Service…Honor…Duty to Country.

    Give your young people a chance to understand their entitled to nothing they don’t earn.

    Wake up America! You’ve allowed yourselves to be little more than cowering spectators watching the nation your grandparents built, the richest, most powerful, self-sufficient republic in history with the highest standard of living any nation ever achieved.

    Now in the greatest unprecedented decline in modern history, the world’s only superpower cannot defend its borders, balance its budget, win its wars, manufacture its own products or protect its own currency.

    Your total government debt obligation over the next several years is approaching the gross domestic product of the entire world.

    You’ve diminished the future of your children, grandchildren, and 10 more generations of Americans.

    On September 11, 2001, 300 million Americans put aside what divided them and rallied around what united them. You proudly flew your flag, wore T-shirts that said these colors don’t run, then you leadership told you to do nothing. Let your professional Army do the fighting. Perhaps you learned to do nothing all too well.

    233 years ago, the silent majority in Boston got fed up with taxation without representation held a little tea party to prove the anger of “We the People” is on the march. It started the first American revolution. Now it’s time to start the second American revolution.

    Take an envelope, put a tea bag inside, simple. Seal it and send it to your non-representing representatives in Congress. They’ll get the idea. We’re mad as hell and we want our country back.

    Look in your mirror, there’s your leader. Phone your talk radio host, call for a tax protest, set your internet communities on fire with the idea.

    But if you decide to do nothing again, then buy a gun, you’ll need it. My name is Thomas Paine.

    Don’t give up hope America. Your country needs a new greatest generation. Answer the call. Get into the fight. It’s a good time to be a patriot. The second American revolution has just begun.

    Uncle Sam Needs You to Join
    The National Tea Party
    Send a teabag to your employees in the Government

      I see your HR2749, and i raise you s1261 the Pass id act of 2009. Calling us weary implies we still have a chance to take our government back and we simply cant.

          I don’t have that choice, this country is lost, better i move to Iraq they probably have a more constitutional government than we do. Until the weary patriots discover that the MLK Jr approach is ineffective and see that we got to go Malcolm X/weathermen underground style this country is lost forever.
