Our Venom is Our Vote

Rattle With Us is a TEA Party that was birthed on April 15th, 2009. Our first rallies were on Haggerty Road between 7 and 8 Mile and in Kellogg Park in downtown Plymouth. We are grass roots. We are everyday Americans who simply want the politicians to STOP the spending, cut taxes, follow the Constitution, and get government out of our way as we seek life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

This group has adopted the historic Gadsden flag as a symbol of what our group stands for. The words “DONT TREAD ON ME” effectively convey how we feel as freedom loving Americans. The rattlesnake is like the American taxpayer. According to Benjamin Franklin, both give generous warning before they strike. We truly believe that “OUR VENOM IS OUR VOTE.”


Why the Gadsden Flag?

In December 1775, Benjamin Franklin published an essay in the Pennsylvania Journal under the pseudonym American Guesser in which he suggested that the rattlesnake was a good symbol for the American spirit:

"I recollected that her eye excelled in brightness, that of any other animal, and that she has no eye-lids—She may therefore be esteemed an emblem of vigilance.—She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders: She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage.—As if anxious to prevent all pretentions of quarrelling with her, the weapons with which nature has furnished her, she conceals in the roof of her mouth, so that, to those who are unacquainted with her, she appears to be a most defenceless animal; and even when those weapons are shewn and extended for her defence, they appear weak and contemptible; but their wounds however small, are decisive and fatal:—Conscious of this, she never wounds till she has generously given notice, even to her enemy, and cautioned him against the danger of treading on her.—Was I wrong, Sir, in thinking this a strong picture of the temper and conduct of America?"


We truly believe that “OUR VENOM IS OUR VOTE.”

The time has come for people like us to take a stand against politicians who would seek to increase their power, restrict individual liberty, and spend money that does not exist. The powers of the federal government and its influence in our lives should be limited. Politicians need to remember that they work for us, we do not work for them. As Thomas Jefferson said, "The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself or be ruled by a small elite."

The members of this group know that the United States of America has formed the best government that history has known. The Constitution of the United States of America and the Bill of Rights has given the citizens of this country unprecedented freedom. Freedom is sustained when everyone is responsible for their own decisions and/or actions and in doing so must also accept responsibility for the consequences thereof, including those in political office.

How would you like to own a business where your raw materials are free, your gross sales exceed one third of a billion dollars per year and you have so much money flowing in that you are able to perform “special favors” for your friends by the awarding of lucrative contracts?  Imagine that you sell this product to everyone in your city and jack up the rates and sell this “essential to life” product to everyone in neighboring towns at a greatly elevated rate.…

Unfair Water Rates in Southeast Michigan

Fellow Neighbors,                 

I have been researching a problem that is a significant

problem to most of Southeast Michigan. The water rate structure as

determined by the Detroit Water and Sewer Department is unfair. The

communities in Western Wayne and Oakland Counties are paying more than

their fair share and, as such, are "carrying the load". These costs

are transferred to you and me by our suburban communities. The solution

is to demand that all… Continue
