During yesterday’s North Dakota House debate, liberal candidate Pam Gulleson referred to the tea party movement as “extremists” in her opening statement. Which is funny. Under the control of Gulleson’s party, the federal government has run an annual budget deficit of over $1 trillion per year for what will be, at the end of this fiscal year, four consecutive years. President Obama, who will be on the top of the ballot for Democrats, has added more debt to the nation’s $16 trillion total in less than four years than all 42 other presidents combined. The #1 area of federal spending is writing checks to people, even as the number of people paying for the federal government shrinks to a minority.
If opposing all that makes we tea partiers extremists, then yes we’re the most extreme people you’ve ever met in your life. And we extremists are going to be rallying across North Dakota later this month on September 17th.
The North Dakota Tea Party Caucus is coordinating the rallies, which are all locally organized. Their flyer is below, or keep an eye on this link for updated information. For you readers who are interested, I’ll be speaking at the event in Jamestown. Other events across the state will be in Grand Forks, Fargo, Bismarck, Dickinson, Williston and Minot.
The NDTPC also wanted me to mention that they’re holding an essay contest for high school and college students. They have a $500 prize for each category for the best written or video essay. Details here.
