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?"

Any #MIGOP Candidate for #USSenate in 2020 starts off on about the same/level Playing field (unusual when dealing-with/versus an incumbent)....
Peters' is one of the least known Senators anywhere. For whatever reasons, people seemed to know #DebbieStabenow (and have a false GOOD OPINION of her) where-as people don't even have a clue that GARY PETERS is their other Senator which makes him a far easier target in 2020!
#GaryPeters virtually unknown is something we know and helps…Continue

Listen, I may NOT be a Fan of the STRATEGY that the #TrumpAdmin is currently engaging in (caving on #SOTU (though it may be back on now), temporarily re-opening Govt (w/o current #Wall deal), etc) in order to FORCE THE ISSUE on #BuildTheWall. I "understand it" (by continually showing Trump/GOP are constantly GIVING and DEALING while Democrats are 100% OBSTRUCTION ALL THE TIME, despite their pretend calls for BiPartisanship - not, of course, that the #eneMEDIA would honestly report THOSE…Continue
#StolenValor, known #DemocratActivist (we know his Libtard antics well in his home State of MI), #NathanPhillips, still tries to play the #Victim (and #RACE) Card despite the #FACT many of us saw the extended/whole #Video. He says #Sandmann (#CovingtonBoys) should have #WALKEDAWAY.
#Phillips, YOU ARE THE SUPPOSED #ADULT - WHY DIDN'T "YOU" #WALKAWAY? Why did YOU start the confrontation by walking up to, not the other way around, and get in the Kids' faces - aggressively beating your…Continue
