I went to the one-year anniversary rally for the original New York City Tea Party today at City Hall Park. It was a cold morning following a snowstorm but the turnout was pretty good!

Happy Birthday, Tea Party Movement!

It all began last year when CNBC's Rick Santelli called for a Chicago Tea Party leading the call to revolt against Obama's mortgage bailout plan.

The rest is history.

VIDEO HIGHLIGHT: David Webb responds to Tea Party critics,
namely Bill Mahr, Keith Olbermann, Jeanine Garafalo and Jerrold Nadler.

The Tea Partiers then went off to demonstrate in front Senator Schumer's and Senator Gillibrand's offices. Photos to come.

I am sorry that I had to implement the 'word verification' step for comments. The spam is really getting out of control.

I Vote You Out 2010 will be at the 2010 Tax Day Tea Party in New York City.

last April - my wife and I went to the rally corraled on the sidewalk next to City Hall Park. This year we will be back - with a Loud Vote!

Info about I Vote You Out 2010 is available on our Blog:

We ask for supporters to join us at

I am IVUO-Joe 1 - co-founder. I am one Loud Vote.

We elect Representatives and Senators to the US Congress and when it comes time to represent our interests and our principles they Vote Against Us!. More and more, our elected officials see their personal power and their entitlement to office as their goal. I VOTE YOU OUT 2010.

The Key Issues that I Vote You Out 2010 supporters see as critical to preserving our Individual Liberty and Protecting Future Generations: We oppose higher taxes, we oppose bigger deficits and we don’t want the government getting bigger. We do want government to start working better by reducing the waste, fraud, and corruption that they already know exists.

The discontent at our core is also deeper than just those issues and how Members of Congress are voting against our interests and principles. Too many of them have lost their honor, their honesty and their sense of right and wrong. They sell their votes among themselves for funding to run their re-election campaigns and to make sure that their cronies get large grants and large contracts from the government – they sell and trade special deals, exemptions, and pay-backs. They use our tax dollars to buy more power for themselves.

The big plans they are voting into law do not make sense. These big plans will have real consequences that far outweigh any good that they might do. They say "Here is a Problem" - and then pass laws that do not address the causes and roots of that problem - they just extend and expand government's reach and bring more problems into being. Solve the known problems before creating new unknown consequences!

Please look at the great recognition we received on March 23, 2010 from Jennifer Harper's "Inside the Beltway" / The Washington Times added below.

We are the Loud Vote. Join me. Join Us! I Vote You Out 2010
We are a few individuals - we will grow to hundreds and thousands.
This November - you will hear Our Loud Vote.

Thank you
I am IVUO-Joe 1

Inside the Beltway
Jennifer Harper / The Washington Times
What now in a post-health care world? Well, November, naturally. After attending a "tax day tea party" in Manhattan, N.Y., last year, financial journalist David W. Alvey decided to articulate the "core discontent" among those vexed by Congress. The result is I Vote You Out 2010 - a project created in his Brooklyn home that includes both blog and Web site to parse out issues. Mr. Alvey wants the sites to get noisy.
"There is raw emotion on these issues and most importantly people share our convictions that Congress is hostile to letting people run their own businesses and their own lives, and are unwilling to listen to their constituencies. Or they're just arrogant and only interested in power and in getting re-elected," Mr. Alvey tells Inside the Beltway.
"Our simple message resonates: If our elected representatives and U.S. senators are not voting to support our issues and our principles, then 'I vote you out 2010,' " he adds.
See their ground-floor efforts at and .

Love what you guys are doing. REal New Yorkers see everyday how corrupting all of these government social programs really are. They do nothing but breed laziness and ignorance and drag down entire communities by advancing those that choose to cut corners.
