The West Michigan Tea Party on July 4, 2009 was a true celebration of what Independence Day is supposed to be about. People throughout the West Michigan corridor came to Riverside Park between 1pm and 3pm to state that we as Citizens have been Taxed Enough Already (TEA). Family Rights, Parental Rights, Tax Reformers, and other outspoken advocates from all walks of life came together and networked and listened to live entertainment, speakers, and each other.
One speech that I really enjoyed was Kristine C. from ICaucus.Org that spoke on the issues of Grassroots effectiveness and the fact that government has not been listening to our voices lately. A copy of this speech will be available in the coming days. For now, I leave you with a live version of God Bless America and come back for more information about this and other events that will help Americans stave off government intrusion in a variety of areas.
