"Tea Party activists are frustrated that despite a huge turnout over the last year Congress is ignoring them," says Hardage, who is national operations director for the planned strike. "The question is that if the elected officials ignore you, what do you do to exercises your right to self-governance? So we decided to hold a National Day of Strike where we go after the large donors of the people pushing this radical agenda."

Yes, it is sad that congress is ignoring a majority of the country. Hope everybody shows up at the next election and brings their good neighbors. Leave the bad neighbors at home.

ha!
ultra right-wing teabaggers taking a cue from the lefty unions and striking b/c their constitution isn't working out for them.

Teabaggers: Maybe you should read more than just the 2nd amendment.

Too good...

Hate to break it to you, but I'd be willing to say the Teabaggers and their ideology probably accounts for less than 20% of the nation.
