TAX day Chicago TEA Party 15-Apr-2010

A year ago, 19-Feb-2009, Rick Santelli's "rant heard round the world" from the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade asked "President Obama, are you listening ?!?" At the time, the answer to that question was no. One year later, the answer to that question is still no.

So what is happening in Chicago, around Illinois and across America? Yep... TEA parties are still happening!

A comment on Breitbart article:

News of the death of the tea party in Chicago has been greatly exaggerated. We’re celebrating the one year anniversary of the first Chicago Tax Day Tea Party with a rally at noon on April 15, 2010 in Federal Plaza. Over the past month we’ve been working with like minded groups across the city and state to not only help organize the rally, but to build an organization that is sustainable after April 15 to help educate voters, walk precincts, make phone calls and get out the vote for candidates that pledge to support and defend the constitution.

We’re going to have nationally known speakers, local liberty activists and regular Americans who’ve made a difference over the past year take the stage – including people you already know.

From the TEA Party Patriots Chicago site "April will be an busy month for the Tea Party movement in Illinois and around the country. On April 5, the Tea Party Express will come to Springfield. On April 6, the Tea Party Express will come to Rockford. On April 15, there will be a huge Tea Party at noon in downtown Chicago and a nationwide Tax Day Tea Party in Washington that evening."
"spot of tea, love...?"
For those who still don't know what are these 'crazy' TEA parties are about - from the Illinois TEA Party site:


The impetus for the Tea Party movement is excessive government spending and taxation. Our mission is to attract, educate, organize, and mobilize our fellow citizens to secure public policy consistent with our three core values of Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets.

Fiscal Responsibility: Fiscal Responsibility by government honors and respects the freedom of the individual to spend the money that is the fruit of their own labor. A constitutionally limited government, designed to protect the blessings of liberty, must be fiscally responsible or it must subject its citizenry to high levels of taxation that unjustly restrict the liberty our Constitution was designed to protect. Such runaway deficit spending as we now see in Washington, D.C. compels us to take action as the increasing national debt is a grave threat to our national sovereignty and the personal and economic liberty of future generations.

Constitutionally Limited Government: We, the members of Illinois Tea Party, are inspired by our founding documents and regard the Constitution of the United States to be the supreme law of the land. We believe that it is possible to know the original intent of the government our founders set forth, and stand in support of that intent. Like the founders, we support states' rights for those powers not expressly stated in the Constitution. As the government is of the people, by the people and for the people, in all matters, we support the personal liberty of the individual, within the rule of law.

Free Markets: A free market is the economic consequence of personal liberty. The founders believed that personal and economic freecom were indivisible, as do we. Our current government's interference distorts the free market and inhibits the pursuit of individual and economic liberty. Therefore, we support a return to the free market principles on which this nation was founded and oppose government intervention into the operations of private business.
And for the record, NO... Nancy Pelosi, sorry, you do NOT have ANYTHING in common with the TEA partiers! (psst, dear San Francisco, please vote her a&& OUT of OFFICE... sincerely, saucyusa)
