Tennessee Tea Party
. And what better time to push back against the communist infiltrators than the week of Independence Day. To wit(less):
...The Middle Tennessee Liberty Rally will offer Tennesseans an event where they can voice their opposition to America's mad dash towards Socialism. In addition to out of control government spending and the $3.7 trillion budget, issues such as States' rights, cap-and-trade, and Nationalized Healthcare will be hot topics.

We must remind those who we elect and pay to represent us that this Socialist form of government is NOT what the Founding Fathers had in mind when they formed this great nation 233 years ago this Independence Day.

And let's give credit to the Tennessee Tea Party for coining a phrase for the sane and reasonable folks who are actually in favor of "socialist" practices like universal health care: "mad dashers."
In the interest of good sportsmanship, and as a token of gratitude for scaring all of the more moderate and rational Republicans into hiding, allow us mad dashers to offer these helpful costume suggestions for today's rally, after the jump. But get to work! You've only got a few hours.
To paraphrase one of America's great founding terrorists, Patrick Henry: "Give me liberty or give me tea!"
In that quintessentially American spirit, today there's another teabagger conclave, "The Middle Tennessee Liberty Rally," brought to you by the
