Last year, on April 15 2009, millions of Americans stood in over 800 protests around the country to voice their concerns over reckless government spending. Ordinary citizens, from all walks of life and from all political persuasions, took to the streets, in big cities and small towns, many taking political action for the first time. Since then, even more Americans have been inspired to get informed, to have their voices heard, and to hold their elected officials accountable, by getting involved in the Tea Party Movement. And on April 15 2010, millions of Americans will again take to the streets at Tea Party rallies across the country, to continue to oppose the out-of-control , government takeovers of sectors of the economy, Cap & Trade, government-run health care, and higher taxes.
Here in Connecticut, conservative grassroots activists and Tea Party Patriots will be gathering in Hartford, at the State Capitol, on the north steps, from 2 PM to 4 PM, for the Second Annual Tax Day Tea Party. The theme for this year's rally is IT'S ABOUT LIBERTY!, and the Tea Party Principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, free markets, and the Constitution will be highlighted throughout the program.
Featured speakers include grassroots activist & founder of Right Principles - Bob MacGuffie, conservative radio talk show host - Jim Vicevich, and Republican Senatorial candidate - Peter Schiff, along with a number of conservative candidates and members of the CT . This is a family-friendly event, meant to educate and inspire Tea Party Patriots in Connecticut, and the public in general.
