Let me introduce you to the Hot Teapot. It’s so hot that you will be able to see the steam coming out of this little getup. This teapot whistles with all the energy, passion and engagement that the Tea Party has brought to America this year.
When I spoke at the MN Tea Party’s Tax Day Rally at the Minnesota State Capitol this year, I experienced the positive energy behind the Tea Party first-hand. I can think of no better way to celebrate Halloween – a few days before the midterm elections – than to don this costume.
Reuters reports that more Americans (two out of five) plan to wear a Halloween costume this year. “In recent years, Halloween has provided a welcome break from reality, allowing many Americans a chance to escape from the stress the economy has put on their family and incomes,” explains National Retail Federation president and CEO Matthew Shay.
So, if you plan to join in on the fun, why not do it in a meaningful way and stand up for the foundations that our country was built on, like the U.S. Constitution, free enterprise, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?
