Tax Day Tea Party – From the Bay State to the Windy City to the Golden Gates

“Yes We Can” – Reject Higher Taxes and Fees - Massachusetts Residents across the State have planned Tax Day Tea Party’s for April 15th in the following locations:

  • Boston, Statehouse, 10 am – 8 pm
  • Lowell, JFK Plaza, Lowell City Hall, 4 pm – 8 pm
  • Pittsfield, Park Square, 4pm – 6 pm
  • Springfield, Post Office, Corner of Main and Liberty, 4 pm – 6 pm
  • Worcester, Lincoln Square, in front of the Auditorium, 4 pm – 6 pm

  • Over in Illinois, home to Lincoln and Barak Obama, citizens will be holding two Tax Day Tea Party’s in the City of Chicago:

  • Chicago, 12 – 2 pm, Daily Plaza
  • Chicago, Navy Pier, 4:30 pm – 9 pm Young Republicans, Tall Ship – Recreation of the Boston Tea Party (for info on this event visit Hillbuzz

  • Astoundingly, there will be a Tax Day Tea Party at the following location:
  • San Francisco, Civic Center Park, 11 am – 1 pm. One should not expect the current speaker to attend.

    There are Tax Day Tea Party’s being held across the country, the website Tax Day Tea Party.com has listings for each state. The event is sponsored in part, by the following groups: Smart Girl Politics, Top Conservatives of Twitter, and The Don’t Go Movement.

    By most accounts, these groups are conservative – that said, regardless of who may be sponsoring this particular brand of protest, anyone, regardless of party affiliation, should consider taking part. The term, “no taxation without representation” was the rallying cryfor the original Boston Tea Party, which is credited as the beginning of the Colony’s (States), war for Independence against Great Britain.

    Our country was founded based on a refusal to pay taxes without representation – one might argue that U.S. citizens are represented by their respective Congress and Senate members; that said, with a two party system so deeply committed to a bizarre competition of “who brings the most pork” home to a district or state, in order to continue to maintain their seat of power indefinitely (argument for term limits right there), those members no longer have the time to do the business of the people, rather they are committed to a political party first, their ability to maintain their own power second.

    Finally, One must, however, give credit where credit is due – therefore, to be fair to the fiscally conservative members of both party’s who voted Nay on passing the bloated Obama budget, a thank you should be sent to the 176 Republicans (All) and 20 Democrats who voted Nay. These members are:
