The tea is brewing in Michigan. April 15 is creeping up on us, and frankly.. I am looking forward to it. Not because I like to pay taxes to an overly authoritarian big spending government. Not because I like to support the failed policies of socialists who hand out from the sweat of my brow, to those who caress their egos, but rather because MY VOICE WILL BE HEARD. And now its echoes will be bounced off many locations throughout the state of Michigan.
I am listing here the known Tea Party events and as much information as I can provide. I personally will be attending the Lansing rally, and hopefully gather enough interest from the Grand Traverse area to charter a bus with 30-40 of us.
Some of you may not wish to travel all the way to the big tea party in Lansing, or might even lack the resources, or frankly cannot get off of work. Yet you still want to participate. There is likely one closer to you. I suggest assisting the organizers if you have any time, to insure a great event and a good time. Much of the below information also available from Fresh Tea Daily’s Michigan Section where you may find comments and people looking for rides etc..

Additional Tea Party activity SPONSORED by the Kent County GOP in GR. While the Tea Party issue is considered “non-partisan” at least one local party has stepped up to the plate and said enough is enough! Hopefully we hear from the other side as well
