America needs less government and Constitutional Original Intent. The government programs that are vital for our citizens should not pay greater taxes but rather a fair tax that collects revenue on a better scale then our punitive Income Tax that requires the nation’s wealthy to shoulder the majority of government spending that benefits the majority of Americans that do not pay taxes under the current system.
President Obama tossed not even a bone in his State of the Union Address, but he did toss a lot of Leftist ideology.
Senator Rand Paul gave the Tea Party Movement response under the aegis of the Tea Party Express. I am posting the email the TPX sent as well as a link for you to sign letters to your Congressman and Senators expressing your sentiments about less government.
If you wish to see the official Republican response to the SOTU is the video of Senator Marco Rubio:

Senator Rand Paul hit a home run last night in our Tea Party response to the State of the Union
His message was clear: restore opportunity by empowering the individual
Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest tea party political action committee, hosted the Tea Party response to President Obama’s State of the Union speech, delivered by Senator Rand Paul. The speech articulated the defining tenets of the Tea Party movement: reduce the size of government so every citizen can pursue the American Dream.

Thank you to all our loyal supporters who made this event possible.
Senator Rand Paul gave an amazing speech last night and clearly articulated the Tea Party’s conservative message. Washington’s bi-partisan spending binges and backroom deals have led us to a point of crippling debt and anemic economic growth. It’s time for America to right this ship by creating an economically sound pathway forward.
It should be no surprise that the GOP response mirrored so closely to the Tea Party response. Like Senator Paul, Senator Marco Rubio has proven to be a bold Tea Partier that’s leading the Republican Party back to its conservative principles. Tonight should be remembered as the night in which America’s conservative majority united to reject the dangerous big-government agenda of President Barack Obama with two very compelling speeches.
The President must stop being the President of the tax and spend wing of the Democrat Party. Obama should head to the warning of Senator Paul and Senator Rubio and work with Congress in reducing the size of government and restoring opportunity to Americans.
Senators Rubio and Paul have articulated ideas to get the American economy growing again. We cannot tolerate the weak growth, the weakest post-recession growth in American history. It means few jobs for graduating high school and college students. It means no savings for middle class families to provide for a brighter future for their children. Ending high taxes, unsustainable debt and oppressive over-regulation will be more opportunities for Americans to realize the American dream. We need responsible cuts, but more importantly, we need strong pro-growth policies
If the President instead continues down a polarizing big-government path, the electorate will mimic the 2010 sentiment in 2014 and 2016.
Tea Party Express hosted the first ever Tea Party State of the Union response in 2011 with Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, and Herman Cain delivered last year’s speech.
ea Party Express is determined to identify and elect the most conservative and principled candidates in 2014 as we aim to take back the Senate and increase our strength in the House. The Tea Party must continue to to be successful if we are going to curb the excessive spending by both parties in Washington D.C. Can we count on you to ensure that the Tea Party is remains strong?

I Believe in a Fiscally Responsible America
10,792 Letters and Emails Sent So Far (as of 2/13/13)
I reaffirm my commitment to the Tea Party because I believe that a fiscally responsible America can be reached by honoring these 6 principles:
§ No more bailouts
§ Reduce the size and intrusiveness of government
§ Stop raising our taxes
§ Repeal Obamacare
§ Cease out-of-control spending
§ Bring back American prosperity
This past election proves the lessons of 2010 were only felt, but not learned. It is now more important than ever for constitutional conservatives – the silent majority – to reaffirm our commitment to taking back our nation. We are witnessing the constant erosion of our freedoms, devaluing of our currency, unsustainable debts and deficits, and politicians unwilling to face these threatening realities.
I am the tea party and I promise future generations that I will not leave America weaker than how I found her. I pledge my time and treasure to restoring this great Republic to the limits articulated by our founders in the Constitution of the United States of America.
I will not give up until America is once more, “the shining city on a hill.”
