I found this yesterday on a site called Ronald Reagan.com and in the forum, was this little gem. I had wondered something like this myself, but I feel it is a wonderful idea, letting our representatives know, just what they are doing isn’t what the people want.
In the part below, there are three addresses for mailing. One is Nancy Pelosi’s, the other is Harry Reid’s and the last one is for Barack Obama.
Now most of you, at some time or another, drink tea, and taking a used tea bag, that is dry, place it in an envelope, and send one to Obama, one to Pelosi and one to Harry Reid. Send as many as you can.
I feel as this person who wrote this does, that it would be the equivilant to the Boston Tea Party revolt, or the Chicago Tea Party that Rick Santelli was ranting about the other day on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade.
Come on people, let’s let this government know that we the people are still in charge! This is a great idea here.
Here is the post that I found:
For some time since January 20th, discussions have been held among members of the Conservative Policy Roundtable (a private citizen’s think tank) dealing with an issue dear to the hearts of many ordinary, everyday Conservative American Citizens; what can we do about the direction in which this Nation is being taken?
When an announcer on, of all channels, CNBC launched into a tirade on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade about the need for another “Boston Tea Party”, we had our answer. We will strive to bring forth from people all across this Great Nation an out-pouring of dried-out used tea bags which will be mailed, one per envelope, to at least each of the following officials;
Office of the Speaker
H-232, US Capitol
Washington, DC 20515
Senator Harry Reid
522 HART SENATE OFFICE BUILDING
WASHINGTON DC 20510
Barack Hussein Obama
President of the United States
1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW
Washington, DC 20500
Our intent is that concerned citizens all across this Great Nation will contact their local and National conservative public personalities on radio and television to help spread this idea and its intent far and wide. Internet blogs should also be used to further disseminate this idea with the goal being to put Washington on notice that “we, the people” are already fed up with our being forced down the primrose path toward National Socialism. A date for this subtle but oh, so potentially meaningful protest to occur has been set; on or about April 15th, 2009.
Any and all assistance with the dissemination of this information will be deeply appreciated as will your participation in “The Tea Bag Revolt”.

Now my friends, isn’t this a great idea? I think it is. Let’s send them MILLIONS of used tea bags to get our message out to them that we are sick and tired of this steady march towards Socialism that they are leading us on. We want our country back! And we want it back NOW!
A Comment from Jude, mentioned that since the people in Washington do not know what is in the tea bags, they are just throwing them away. Better to do this: They are now asking everyone to just take the string and label off of the tea bag as well as the wrapper and send them instead so they will actually be delivered.
