Knox Tea Party of 1

”All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.” - Thomas Jefferson


This is no longer the official website of the Knoxville Tea Party

My favorite local groups:

Rocky Top Freedom Campaign  (these guys are the real deal - the best of the best) 

POETs - Patriots of East Tennessee (a great educational group)

TN 10th Amendment Center

Roane County Teaparty

                                   It's the Spending 


 Obama criticized Bush for doubling the deficit, but spent more money in 4 years than Bush did in 8 years.


Check out the economic growth chart.  Notice the recovery that occurred under Bush after he lowered tax rates and then what happened in 2006 when Democrats took over Congress.


From the graph below, it doesn't look like we can balance the budget on the back of national defense. Looks to me like the decrease in interest during the Bush years more than paid for the defense spending. Notice interest on the debt and the level of entitlement spending during the Clinton and Obama years vs. the Bush and Reagan years. (Wonder what Starr Parker thinks about Obama gutting welfare reform by executive order?)

QE1, QE2, QE3...QE4?  I've lost count

2 of every 3 dollars spent on entitlements

Government spending 42% GDP....We're nearing Spain and the rest of the PIIGS.



US sets record $223B deficit in one month, exceeding Bush's 2007 annual deficit.

Mandatory Spending to exceed all federal revenues - 50 years ahead of schedule.

Debt jumped $72B the same day US house voted to cut spending by $6B.

Geithner to Congress:  More Debt Please...
