Tea Parties Coming…

If you’ve been listening to the conservative talk shows lately, you probably already know about these anti-tax events being held throughout the country.  People are turning out in droves to show their support for lower taxes, better tax structure (like the Fair Tax), and support smarter, smaller, government and spending.

Here in Des Moines, there are two events that I’m aware of.

One is scheduled for April 11 at the Iowa State Capitol.  I don’t know the time yet… I will update you when I do know.  Chris Reed is reported to be the MC for this event.

The other is scheduled for April 15, also at the State Capitol, from 11 to 2.  This group has a web site setup at www.desmoinesteaparty.blogspot.com.

If you are concerned about where taxation at all levels of government are heading, attend one of these events.  I expect that both events will have great speakers present.  And politicians actually pay attention when large numbers of people show up.

I’m sure we’ll have more information here as these dates get closer.

Update: change start time for April 15 event.  – Ed
