Understanding Liberty, Freedom, and Government’s Place

with one comment

Becky Gerritson of the Wetumpka Tea Party testified before the House Ways and Means committee regarding her group’s treatment by the IRS with an emotional plea to her government to rein in its overreach and at times tearfully explaining the experience she and her husband had personally with IRS representatives.

Mrs. Gerritson eloquently and forcefully expresses her concern of what is being lost in this country and how our elected representatives are chipping away at the liberties the constitution was created to provide and protect.

If her response does not stir something inside the people of this nation, they have lost their understanding of why this country was founded, the principles upon which it was founded, and the uniqueness of this great experiment.
