Report on Merrifield tax Day Tea Party

According to organizers of the Northern Virginia Tax Day Tea Party, the event was attended by over 350 citizens who are outraged by the mad money spending by the Federal government by the Democrat controlled Congress under the Bush and Obama Administrations. They lined both sides of Lee highway in front of the postal complex. The demonstrators stood firm despite being battered by the continuous heavy rainfall, many dressed in rain wear and still needing an umbrella. The demonstrators spent over two and a half hours in the down pour holding signs like "US Out of GM" and "Stop the Mad Money Spending," chanting STOP (left side of road) SPENDING. Organizers were only expecting 25 people, but to their surprise 350 showed uup despite the heavy downpour and unfavorable location (inconvenient parking). the heavy turnout is evidence of the strong feelings of the general public about the level and direction of Federal spending. The event was not without comic relief, however, two lonely counter protesters sported a sign that said, "I (heart) Titties." Which they explained as their feeling that women were under represented in Congress. Not sure whether they got their point across.

Conservatives Clarion Call to Action

American patriot Rick Santelli called for massive a taxpayer of the "Chicago Tea Party revolt against outrageous spending by the Federal Government. And a movemetn was sparked. He stands on the shoulders of the founding fathers for his brave opposition to the powers that be. The Boston Tea party was a pivotal moment in American history, kindling the revolution that brought this nation freedom. I am so pleased that Former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich of America's Solutions has also heard the call and is standing with the taxpayer tea parties form sea to shining sea. Conservative talk show host Sean Hannity has been very helpful in getting the word out to his listeners.

In the words of Ronald Reagan, "If you can't make them see the light, make them feel the heat." Our rallies across America will make President Obama and the Democratic Congress feel the political heat.

Don't wait for leadership to organize a tea party near you, organize one yourself by getting your friends and neighbors informed and involved.

See you at the next Tea Party!
