Speech For The April Fools Day Rally At Dutch Ruppersberger's Office

Thank God we live in a country where we can gather together to let our elected officials know that we are not happy with their job performance. Throughout the past year and a half they have tried to ignore us, marginalize us, and discredit us while they pushed through bailouts, a fake stimulus, Cap and Trade, and the Health Care debacle. We, as their employer, refuse to sit idly by and watch these career politicians pass legislation that erodes our freedoms and violate the constitution. John Adams wrote in 1776, “Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it.” If we, as citizens of this great country do not hold our elected officials accountable for their actions and votes, then who will? We certainly cannot entrust them with that responsibility.
Elections have consequences, and we are experiencing the consequences of the past several elections. Elections where we watched as the same career politicians were elected to fix the problems that they created. The time has come to remind Dutch and the rest of the bureaucrats in DC and Annapolis whom they work for. This coming election is about more than Dutch Ruppersberger, it is about the future of our country. The national debt that they have rung up is astounding and they show no signs of stopping. Last year alone they had a $1.5 trillion deficit. This year is projected to be just as bad if not worse. Their solution is to throw more of our money at the problem and hope that this time a government solution will work for the first time in human history. We need to unleash the entrepreneurial spirit of the free market. The Federal Government needs to remove the burden from the backs of the taxpayers and small businesses; and then get out of the way.

Dutch and his cronies in DC told us last year that the government was the only one to save us from the declining economy. Now that we have had 10% unemployment for months, why should we trust that they now know how to fix the problem that they created? November provides us as voters the opportunity to send a crystal clear message to the career politicians in our state house and our Congress. We can tell them that business as usual will no longer be accepted. If you vote for legislation that increases our debt, increases our tax burden, decreases our freedom, violates the constitution, or threatens our sovereignty, you will be unemployed after the next election. My name is Troy Stouffer and I am not a career politician nor do I want to be one, but I would love the opportunity to serve you in Washington DC. Thank You!
