First of all — what is this?
MoveOn Rally to Save the American Dream
A bit melodramatic isn’t it? Since when is the American Dream all about hosing the taxpayers? Since when is being asked to pay a little more for benefits some kind of dream- shattering travesty? As for collective bargaining for public workers – why is that even allowed? It should be considered a privilege, not a right – and when the state is out of money, it should be a privilege public workers are willing to give up.
In Wisconsin and around our country, the American Dream is under fierce attack. Instead of creating jobs, Republicans are giving tax breaks to corporations and the very rich—and then cutting funding for education, police, emergency response, and vital human services.
On Saturday, February 26, at noon local time, we are organizing rallies in front of every statehouse and in every major city to stand in solidarity with the people of Wisconsin. We demand an end to the attacks on worker’s rights and public services across the country. We demand investment, to create decent jobs for the millions of people who desperately want to work. And we demand that the rich and powerful pay their fair share.
We are all Wisconsin. We are all Americans. (We are all scared that the Dem-enabled gravy train might soon come to a stop).
This Saturday, we will stand together to Save the American Dream. Be sure to wear Wisconsin Badger colors—red and white—to show your solidarity. Sign up today to join in!
Public sector unions are destroying the US economy. What the rank and file don’t seem to realize (because the union bosses won’t tell them) is their generous benefits plans cannot be paid. Billions of dollars that could go toward shortfalls go to Democrat political campaigns, instead. This obscene abuse of taxpayer money needs to end.
That’s why tea partiers are planning counter protests to the pro-union protests at State Capitals on Saturday.
You can check to see if any tea parties in your state are planning counter-protests by using the Freedom-connector at Freedomworks, or you can check for your state chapter at Americans For Prosperity.
Philip Todd is rallying Tea Party groups across the state to counter a union rally by MoveOn.org this Saturday. Here’s what he says:
“At this time we are planning a counter rally on the Capital Steps in Jefferson City. We need to meet about 10:30am to stake our ground. The moveon.org rally is scheduled to start @ noon. Bring signs, banners, and bottled water/snacks. I have been in contact with people from the St Louis Tea party and several groups who will be bringing numbers. We have to draw the line and stand in the way of intimidation by a very small minority. This is our state.”
Please show up if you can. Short notice, I know. But acting quickly and efficiently is the mark of success.
And one in Topeka:
Our Republic is under attack. This Saturday, MoveOn.org is planning a rally that is masquerading as a rally for the American worker. But when you take a closer look at the groups involved and behind the rally you’ll notice that they all have some sort of tie to a socialist/communist/leftist group.
We need to show our support for the actions that are now being undertaken to get our Republic back on the right track. The elections last November were a good start. Now let’s continue the Restoration of our Republic.
We need to meet in Topeka, KS around 10:30am in order to stake our ground. The MoveOn rally is set to begin at Noon. Be sure to bring Bottled water and snacks. And Dress Warm. It’s time to take a stand.
I will add more information when I get it.
I know I don’t have to say this, but I’ll say it anyway – Bring your cameras and keep it civil, people. Let the thuggery be all on their side, (and videotape it).
The Move On rally is brought to you by the usual suspects, (but barring openly commie organizations – they’re learning) :
