Tax Day Tea Party Report

My family participated in the tax day tea party. It was my first time protesting anything. It was the first time for my whole family.

Very interesting indeed.

There were at least 1000 people at this rally. If not more. It started at 5:00 pm and promptly ended at 7:00 pm. It was quite civil, but had a lot of spirit to the protest. There were a few people that drove by that thought they weren’t paying enough taxes, I guess. But, there were more supporters for this cause, than not.

What’s interesting is that it wasn’t just about taxes. Other issues like socialism, propositions, anti-Obama, anti-Congress, even anti-abortion were in the crowd. Even us “right wing extremists” were present. I saw many veterans. A Korean War vet, a Vietnam vet, a Iraqi Freedom vet, and I represented Desert Storm. I am sure there were others, but some didn’t wear any war identifiers, just branch.

Pretty good turn out.

Here’s some pics of the scene:

I’ll be attending a tax day tea party this afternoon.

I’ll take pictures and post them, probably tomorrow.

I’ll be at the one in Rancho Cucamonga.

Signs:

“Cut government spending

FIRE

Congress!”

and

“Economics for Dummies AND Congress,

but I repeat myself…

Spend Less Than You Earn!”

and

“Socialism

CHANGE

We can’t

Afford!”

Party like it’s 1773!
