And here's the petition:
On April 15, millions of grassroots voters will assemble in cities and towns across the country for the first National TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party to register their displeasure with our government's addiction to wasteful spending, bailouts for big business, and higher taxes. Help me force the Senate to recognize this day as a formal protest by the people against these policies.
I support the efforts to enshrine in law a National TEA Party Day, and am completing the form below to become a Citizen Co-Sponsor of Senator Vitters resolution.
Naturally, I signed up ... and, to my surprise, was promptly taken to a page where I could make a donation to his 2010 Senate race:
Thank you for signing the National TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party petition. Please tell David that you will fight with him by making a secure and immediate online contribution using the form below. Your generous contribution will give David the resources he needs to speak out for conservative principles and represent the people of Louisiana in the United States Senate.
It's not a tax if you give it directly to the politician.
