Bob Basso is Thomas Paine: We the People Stimulus Package

Are Americans sucking at the hind tit of dead cow? Can we rise up from this bitter repast and demand that Congress enforce our Constitution, follow the law and get out of our business? Can "we the people" demand a "we the people stimulus package?" Bob Basso thinks we can.

Bob Basso morphs into Thomas Paine
If you need a kick-start to move from cowering spectator to proud American citizen, be uplifted by the words of actor Bob Basso, as a modern-day Thomas Paine, and then follow the link after the video to find information about an April 15th tea party coming to a town near you.
Bob Basso is Thomas Paine (Video) National Tax Day Tea Party Who was Thomas Paine? Born January 1737, died June 1809. He was a "British pamphleteer," an author and an inventor. He moved to the British American colonies (now the United States of America) at the age of 37 and participated in the American Revolution. He is famous for his pamphlet Common Sense, which urged colonists to fight for independence from the King's England. He is controversial on many levels, but for the purposes of this post, his pamphlet, Common Sense, provided reasoned thinking for independence for the colonists. At that time, his work was said to be "the most incendiary and popular pamphlet of the entire revolutionary era."
