Who are these people?
coalition of citizens and organizations concerned about the recent trend of fiscal recklessness in government.
a group of over 300 activists from around the country participating in a big event resembling the classic tax revolt that jump-started the American revolution.
The “new american tea party” is about government handing over billions of dollars, our money, to businesses that should have failed. This is about taking money from responsible people and handing it over to CEOs who squandered their own.
The new american tea party are not opposing any specific legislation or politician, they are addressing the broader philosophical implications of a government that has grown too large and too distant from the very citizens it taxes.
There are many tea party events being held in many cities across the US
I attended one where i live in cincinnati, on march 15, 2009 and there were about 5000 in attendance.
What to Bring when attending: you are ask to bring three things, Signs, tea bags, and more people!
Why? Signs, particularly clever signs, get photographed and get on TV. It also shows that the people that came put in some time and effort. Next, in the tradition of the original Boston Tea Party, you will be dumping your tea. They will have large barrels for everyone to bring their tea bags and “dump them.” Lastly, the more people they have at the rally, the more media attention you get, and the more pressure you can bring to effect the change we want!

Here are a few examples of what a good sign should read; “NO Taxation without Representation.”
“Cut Taxes, Not Deals”
“It’s Noon, do you know where your wallet is?”
“No Public Money for Private Failure”
“Solve Problems, Don’t Sweep Them Under the Table”
I think you get the picture. If you are an american, you have every right to voice your opinion; if we stick together for what is right maybe things will get better.
