Tea Party Boycott
...because we've understood taxation without representation to be wrong from the very beginning!
Take the Pledge with Us:
"We refuse to buy "tea" or any other goods or services from those who insist on subjecting DC citizens to taxation without representation."
We would like to believe that some of our fellow citizens do not fully understand the issue or do not realize the negative impact their representatives have on DC citizens and the country writ large. It is, however, imperative that they understand that they alone have the power to put an end to the damage their representatives do in their names. Until that time, we cannot in good faith financially reward them for the harm they cause either wittingly or unwittingly. It is, at the least, a horrible trade agreement.
An example of this would be the fact that DC citizens purchase cars made in Kentucky. In return, Kentucky continually sends statehood opponents Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell to the Senate. McConnell is even on record stating that he will never vote for DC Statehood.
We don't owe them our business and there are plenty of alternatives. We look forward to supporting those who support their fellow citizens in striving toward true representative democracy and a more perfect union. We're hoping that by the next election this will include Kentucky.
This is a partial list of the states currently sending representatives working to deny DC citizens...our own representatives. Also listed are some of the goods and services that will be "thrown overboard" until DC citizens are able to declare our Independence Day.
This list will be updated after each election. Next update: 02/7/2024
Non-DC citizens, please ask your representatives if they will vote for or against DC Statehood in town hall meetings, debates, interviews, and by calling their offices.
This should also be illuminating for those hoping to elect representatives who understand the concept of representative democracy and are willing to stand up and defend it when required.
We ask that everyone vet their potential representatives before their upcoming elections.
