The first tea party protest of the Tallahasee Tea Party will be held on Tuesday, March 17 (St. Patrick's Day), to protest the $3 trillion federal spending bill recently passed by Congress.
This first tea party will let Governor Crist and the Florida Legislature know that we are not happy about the federal spending bill and we do not want Florida politicians to continue to lobby for more federal money. Instead, we would rather our state be kept financially sovereign from federal bailout packages. We don't need pork, we need liberty.
Special guest speaker, former U.S. House Majority Leader, Dick Armey, is on hand to deliver keynote remarks.
On St. Patrick's Day, we will remind lawmakers that with government intervention into the economy there is no pot of gold at the end of this rainbow of bailouts.
