Senate Vote on Cut, Cap, and Balance and a Tea Party Petition to Stand Strong!!!

Without having seen or heard Barack Hussein Obama’s address to the nation last night, I can confidently say that HE LIED!!! I can say that because he has been LYING throughout this debate. The only reason the U.S. would default is because the President decides that the nation should default. He will make that choice!!! We have sufficient revenue to pay our debts. We don’t have sufficient revenue to continue spending all that we spend. We BORROW at least 40% of what is being spent. The only reason to raise the debt limit is to CONTINUE to borrow 40% of what is being spent!!! Good luck with that approach!!!

Dear Patriot,

Obama’s team was all over the television yesterday throwing a temper tantrum about the debt ceiling. Congressional Republicans have called Obama’s apocalyptic bluff by offering him a short-term deal on the debt ceiling. The Obama team said over and over again yesterday that they would not accept any deal that didn’t extend the debt ceiling past the election!

This is the same team that is trying to scare seniors into believing that if a deal isn’t reached by Wednesday, seniors will be barred from hospitals and Social Security checks won’t go out. Yesterday, it was made clear that they don’t care about seniors or the military; they only care about reelection. Obama’s mentor, Saul Alinsky, made it clear that the threat of a tactic (fear mongering) is always stronger than the tactic itself. Together, we have forced Congress to expose the truth about Obama’s Alinsky tactics.

The only reason that this has become clear is because Republicans in Congress have held strong, and you are the reason they have found their backbone. Together, we have already contacted our elected representatives with more than 186,000 letters, emails, and faxes on this important issue! With your help, we can get that number to more than 200,000 today and release that extraordinary number to the press! Make your voice heard today!


There is NOT a requirement to donate to use this software that makes it quick and easy to contact your elected representatives, but your generous contribution will allow us to continue to offer tools like this free-of-charge!



Thank you,

Todd Cefaratti

“Petition Obama & Congress Directly Now!

Please read the important information below before sending your petition.

TheTeaParty.net has invested in a state-of-the-art petition system where your voice is finally heard immediately by your representatives in Washington, DC. Every week, we will host a new petition. You, along with hundreds of thousands of other patriots, will be cutting through the red tape and getting your message to the President and Congress to stop all this madness—cut spending and restore this great country to what our founders envisioned. This new system will automatically send them emails and faxes with your name attached to it at the touch of a button! On the next page, you will enter your name, email address, and zip code and our state-of-the-art system will locate your specific State representative, and, immediately, your petition voicing your opinion will be on its way to him or her. You will have the chance to write your own words in that petition so your representative will know exactly how you feel.

We know this process is already working because just after petitions were sent from our system by thousands of patriots, we heard from our Washington liaison that Congress was seeing record numbers of petitions! They are already running scared as we have seen television ads start to pop up from special interest groups to combat the support our patriots have created. You are making a huge difference!

This amazing petition system and all the free tools we provide at www.TheTeaParty.net are for Americans to use any time and they are always free. However, it is not free to us as we are investing over $100,000 every month to provide American patriots these free tools to save our beloved country. As a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization, we are 100% funded each month by small, individual donations by American patriots like yourself.

Because we are not funded by billionaires or special interest groups as our opponents are, we will only go as far as the American people will take us. Because of your continued support, we pulled off what has never been done and were able to host the first ever presidential debate for ‘we the people’ instead of the liberal media!

Just fill in your information in the below boxes and then click the button ‘Donate and proceed to the petition page’. If you are unable to donate then instead click on the button ‘Go To Petition Page Without Donating’.
