Michigan Taxpayers Alliance Updates: Lansing Tea Party Protest on April 15!

Thursday, April 2, 2009

Lansing Tea Party Protest on April 15!

In case you haven't heard, citizens angry about Washington and Lansing's destructive taxing and spending orgies are converging on the Capitol Building in Lansing at noon on April 15th to protest. Its part of a national movement of citizens participating in taxpayer T.E.A. (Taxed Enough Already!) parties.

The Michigan Taxpayers Alliance is proud to be one of six Michigan organizations sponsoring the Lansing protest.

You don't need a long, angry, harangue from me to get worked up about the explosion of spending and debt consuming Washington and imperiling our country's economic future. You've lived with six years of the Granholm Doctrine: take more of your money to stimulate government's growth. By now, either you've given up hope, or are pissed-off enough to fight back.

Will this T.E.A. Party signify the resurgence of taxpayer activism? How many citizens are paying attention enough to "do something about" their government's economics of destruction? Will the media and political class take notice? I hope this Lansing T.E.A. Party is the beginning of a sustained, growing movement of citizen resistance to our government's policies of financial suicide.

More info can be found here: michiganteaparty.blogspot.com. Will you be there, at the Capitol in Lansing at noon on tax day? I will be.
