Commercial from the Chicago Tea Party. Do these people look angry to you? Do these people look like radical extremists? They’re real, and they’re voting in November. For more information on the Chicago Tea Party, please visit www.teapartychicago.org Here is the text of the video I’m a mother, I’m a small business owner, I’m a mom, I’m a social worker, I am a songwriter, I am an American and I vote. I’m not violent. I’m not extreme. I’m not funded by a corporation or foreign I’m not angry. I’m informed and I’m involved. The tea party movement is made up of individuals who believe in liberty, the Constitution and fiscal responsibility. I believe our government is limited by the Constitution. I believe in less government and more freedom. But there’s a ruling class in Washington who feels differently. They say they don’t care about the Constitution. They mock the 10th Amendment and the Bill or Rights. They think they know better than us. But we have a message for them: they don’t. We want more freedom, not more debt. We want more jobs, not more bureaucrats. No more takeovers, no more bailouts, no more spending and no more government control. Washington needs to know they work for us, we don’t work for them. Talk to your friends and neighbors. Let them know our children and grandchildren’s future is at stake in this election. I’m voting for liberty in November — are you?
