David Kirkham of Kirkham Motor Sports has organized a Tax Day Tea Party for Utah County residents. His efforts are nothing short of heroic. As of April 8, 2009, there are 600 people signed up in Utah County. That is just staggering!
PLEASE NOTE: THE LOCATION HAS CHANGED
Please join us on April 15, 2009 at the Old Utah County Courthouse of the corner of University Ave. and Center St. in Provo from 5:00 to 7:00 PM.
Scheduled speakers include Third District Rep. Jason Chaffetz and Provo Mayor Lewis Billings. Rep. Chaffetz will be speaking at 5:00 sharp, so please come early. You won’t want to miss anything.
Also, please remember that these protests are not about attacking any specific government official, or impeaching Barak Obama, or anything like that. This is about restoring Constitutional government to America. We are gathering to let our public servants across the country know that we surround them, and that they answer to us, we do not answer to them.
I personally know of individuals who are opposed to these protests who plan to be present to disrupt the activities. Be aware that anything you say to them or do to them will be used to discredit the entire movement, not only on individual blogs, but in the mainstream media as well. Do not engage them. They do not have honorable motives.
I recommend responding to their heckling only with this, from Samuel Adams:
“If ye love [redistributed] wealth better than liberty,
the tranquility of servitude
better than the animating contest of freedom,
go home from us in peace.
We ask not your counsels or your arms.
Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.
May your chains set lightly upon you,
and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.” (Insert mine)
Please join us as we peaceably remind our public servants that we are a free, sovereign people. Let’s celebrate our Independence early this year.
