My Message to Congressman Rick Larsen

Here's what I plan to say to Rick Larsen at the health care town hall meeting tomorrow, if I get a chance:

I'm Karl Uppiano from the Bellingham Tea Party. We're not automatons programmed by the insurance companies. We've come to the same conclusion independently:

Congress must reverse deficit spending. Congress must reverse the concentration of power in Washington, D.C.

This is important because we need to preserve states’ rights, and individual liberty for future generations. If we stay on our present course, we could lose our founding principles forever.

Especially since 2006, congress has been going in exactly the wrong direction. The bail outs, taking over private enterprise and manufacturing, Cap & Trade – and now, health care – nationalizing health care would be a giant leap in the wrong direction.

We the People are supposed to have the liberty, and the responsibility, to take care of ourselves, and our families, and the less fortunate, locally and voluntarily. We don’t need – or want – the federal government to take that liberty away. We the People have the ingenuity and resourcefulness to solve our own problems.

You know, people I’ve talked to in the tea party movement don’t want to be doing this. We’d rather be at home with our families, or minding our own business. We elect representatives to uphold and defend the constitution for us. But when you do the opposite, then we feel we have to get involved.
