Yesterday, The North Lake TEA Party met in Ferran Park in downtown Eustis Florida. North Lake County is made up of several smaller communities including: Eustis, Tavares, Altoona, Umatilla, Mt. Dora, Howie in the Hills, Leesburg, Astor, Fruitland Park, Grand Island, Lady Lake, Lisbon, Mt. Plymouth, Paisley, Sorrento, and the Villages. On the attached copies of the petition we distributed, you will find approximately 952 signatures. We estimate our attendance at nearly 1,000.
The organizers believe you should find it remarkable that 1,000 people from sleepy Central Florida came together on a Wednesday afternoon to let you know we don’t want deficit spending that will impact the financial futures of our children and grandchildren. The effect of interest on deficit spending alone will bankrupt America. Let’s take the bitter pill now and learn to live within our means.
We want America back: STRONG, SOVEREIGN and UNASHAMED, not beholden to foreign countries who are buying our debt.
Thank you for hearing our plea.
