A Dutch Tea Party

Cross posted from Dutch Tea Party Blog

We are fed up with waiting for politicians to see sense. Nothing will change unless we stand up and act.

The Hague is spending taxpayers’ money like there’s no tomorrow. As a result, our national debt is fast running our of control, increasing at €550 a second. Our national debt today stands at €365,179,000,000. That’s €23,000 for every man, woman, and child.

Instead of cutting taxes and letting the market do its job, the Left is now talking about raising taxes to as much as 60% on higher incomes. There are plans for new taxes on cars, on flights, even a tax on meat. Hardworking people will be paying through the nose for socialist pet projects.

Why a Tea Party now?

On June 9 the Dutch are electing a new government. Inexplicably the Dutch Labor Party is still marginally ahead in the polls. We can’t let them win. Every Dutch citizen has got to wake up and realize what will happen if we let the Tax & Spenders take control of the public purse strings.

Come and join us on the 29th of May, as we meet up in front of the Parliament building in The Hague. It’s time to tell the politicians we’re Taxed Enough Already.
