WASHINGTON, April 15, 2014 – Another April 15th is upon us. For millions of Americans, it is a day to grit their teeth and overpay the government for its under-delivery of services.
In Boston, the day carries a special meaning. One year after a radical Islamist Boston Marathon bomber killed three people and wounded over 100, the city continues to be “Boston Strong.” The 2014 marathon is expected to set a new attendance record.
In other parts of the country, defiant Americans frustrated over a government that spends itself into bankruptcy will take action. The peaceful Tea Party movement, a decentralized group of ordinary citizens, wants American politicians of all political parties to spend less and preserve the American dream. With the 2014 elections just over six months away, the Norcal Tea Party is embarking on the “Give Me Liberty” bus tour.
The California bus tour will start with a tax-day rally at the state capitol in Sacramento. Over the course of 12 days, it will travel down to San Diego and back up to Sacramento. Organizers will put on 16 events to help spread the Tea Party message of fiscal restraint.
Despite efforts to tie the Tea Party to divisive social issues, this is a movement solely about restoring America’s economic health. The message is simple: Get out and vote for your conservative candidates in the primary election. Know who they are and how they stand on the issues.
Mark Meckler – Citizens for Self Governance
Brad Dacus – Pacific Justice Institute
Eric Golub – Tygrrrr Express, Conservative Comedian
Sam Parades – Gun Owners of California
Eric Eisenhammer – Coalition of Energy Users
Jon Coupal – Howard Jarvis Tax Payers Association
Mark Anthony – “The Patriot and the Preacher”
Manuel Martin – Candidate
Bonnie McAdams – American Ideals
Stuart Dodge – NorCal Tea Party
The April 15th tax day festivities begin at 11:00am PST with a peaceful march to the capitol. The rally at the capitol begins at noon. After the rally, the speakers board the bus to begin the tour.
