The dateline for this story is December 16, 1773 in Boston, Massachusetts when a group of angry colonists protested a shipment of taxed tea from England. A simple act of protest due to unfair taxing based on constitutional principles became one of the key moments leading up to the Revolutionary War. Now, we fast forward 236 years and similar events are unfolding before our eyes. Free people, citizens of these United States of America, are being taxed unfairly, contrary to the Constitution, in the middle of a recession. Do you know what that is? It is the recipe of protest.
The East Valley Tribune today has an article talking about one of the many TEA party protests planned for this Wednesday, April 15th across the nation. People are gathering because they are angry with what they have seen from the Obama administration, the Congress, and state leaders. Friend of Arizonans In Action and precinct committeeman from LD 22 Denna Ray had this to say:
Denna’s words are not just reflections of one person but the thoughts of many who are very much concerned. Think we are wrong, check out the Arizona TEA Party website for a listing of events in your area. National protest leaders are indicating well over 250,000 people are expected to attend area events throughout the country.
Arizonans In Action will be in attendance and speaking at the event in Phoenix on Wednesday evening at 5:30 at the State Capitol Building – Senate Lawn. Join us as we make our voices heard that we are Taxed Enough Already!
