A 'Dozen' Ring Liberty Belle's Sound, 800 Cities Ring-Back

The very first anti-spending protest happened in Seattle on February 16, 2009, organized by Liberty Belle.

It was a 'Porkulus' protest ahead of its time. Barely, but still the first publicly held movement against Obama's economic agenda; more specifically, Congress and the President's wasteful spending, rising unemployment, higher taxes, unconstitutional expansion of government, and restrictions on liberty.

The following day a local Seattle news source reported, "Dozens gathered at Seattle's Westlake Park Monday to protest programs and spending they say don't belong in the President's economic stimulus plan." One video. Soon forgotten. Poof.

The main-stream-media entertains: 'What protest?'

Then it came back. In an ad hoc, grassroots citizens Tea Party movement, non-partisan protests are held in over 800 cities nationwide. As Liberty Belle explains in her blog, all it took was for frustrated citizens to "imagine that you are a left-wing college student with nothing else to do." And just like that, the nations craft-making juices start flowing, signs and banners get made, and if it takes till our last breath - 'We The People' shout to be heard!

Since her first call-to-action protest on Presidents day, when 800 cities jumped in to follow on April 15, 2009 - the "SuperBlogger" Liberty Belle stepped up to lead Seattle's Tax Day Tea Party rally:

The debt Congress is creating from within these unread, earmark-filled bills will lead to much higher tax increases, massive deficits, and hyperinflation. Our government is risking debt handed down to children not even born yet, on a sidebar chance that a never-before-been-successful plan with trillions in irresponsible spending will somehow help a struggling economy flourish.

Will it work? Can the U.S. Dollar keep up with the worst hyperinflation it will have ever seen? Should Congress or the President have the power to force this type of debt on our children, then turn around and gamble with the money on a plan that has historically always failed? Here's what Glenn Beck has to say about it:

President Obama, Congress... values really do matter in government. Maybe not to you, but you'd better listen to the Tea Party protests by the American people, because we won't go away until our representatives start to represent - We The People!
