National Tax Day Tea Party

*cross-posted from Monkey in the Middle*

The word tea party brings up many images.

A group of ladies sitting in a Victorian Parlor with cup of tea in their hands.

A group of American Patriots, dressed as Indians, throwing boxes of tea into Boston Harbor.

And now it stands for a group of Americans protesting the economic and spending bills that the Democratic Congress is imposing on us.
Building upon the success of the February 27th "Chicago Tea Party" Rallies, many of the organizers are now working to develop an even larger day of protests set to happen on April 15th, 2009.

These protests are known as the Tax Day Tea Party rallies.

Our goal with this website is to try and help pull a lot of the Tea Party event organization in to one easy to navigate and user friendly place on the web. We learned, after much feedback, that one of the biggest frustrations was the difficulty in finding information. Our hope is that this website will solve a lot of these problems.
Here is some video from the Tea Parties that have been held so far all over the United States....

I am sure you all read my recent post where shared the history of the original Tea Party...head on over to Monkey in the Middle ( here) and watch the videos. Then mark your calendars. While you are over there, take a look at the debt clock Findalis has up. If that doesn't scare you into action, nothing will.
