The TEA Party returns to Prince William County this April 15th with what promises to be another stellar event. You can come by the McCoart Center on the 15th between noon and two PM to see a wide array of speakers tackle the reckless behavior of Congress and this Administration, and then pick up with the Sovereignty March that will deliver petitions to Washington DC later that day. Last year’s event was tremendous despite some rain, and this year’s event promises to be even larger and more interesting.
Tax Day TEA Party rally 4/15/2009
This is from the press release for this year’s event:
Thousands of American citizens throughout our Country are frustrated with the fiscal irresponsibility exercised by Congress. On Thursday, April 15th members of Prince William County Tea Party Patriots are poised to descend on the McCoart Administration Center from 12 noon to 2:00p.m. They are gathering to voice their indignation and frustration at Congress and the Administration. Ordinary people will engage in a peaceful demonstration calling for a stop to the pilfering of their wealth and efforts to undermine the foundations of our republic. We will put Congress on notice, that they have misled the American people and betrayed the principles this country was founded upon.
Speakers and their participating organizations include: Ben Marchi, Americans for Prosperity, Ted Kirkpatrick, Campaign for Liberty, Dan Tripp, Americans for Limited Government, John Hanson, Repeal the Income Tax and a representative from the VA Attorney General’s Office. The Honorable Jay O’Brien is moderating. Citizens will also be given time to offer comments.
The VA Chapter of the Constitutional Sovereignty Alliance is organizing and hosting the Virginia Sovereignty March on April 15th and will be joining the Prince William County Tea Party Patriots at the McCoart Building. The purpose of the march is for the people of Virginia to deliver a letter from the Virginia Legislature to the Congress and the President, before joining the DC Tea Party in the evening.
The demonstration at the McCoart Building is just one of dozens such Taxed Enough Already (TEA) parties being held in Virginia. Organized independently by citizen activists they simply cannot afford to remain silent.
As an added bonus, the “coffee party” apologists for the Obama Administration may show up to counter-protest, as they have alongside MoveOn.org at TEA Party rallies elsewhere in the country. Last time they tried this, out in front of Heritage Hunt when Gerry Connolly held a private “town hall meeting” there, there were a whopping two — count ‘em — two counter protesters demanding the government take over the health care industry. I wouldn’t be surprised if this time they round up a somewhat larger crowd of advocates for bigger government, higher taxes and larger government debt who should be a real hoot to watch.
Just remember when you’re there that the left has an agenda in being there, and may try to entice you into furthering it.
