No one plans to dress up like Indians and dump tea into the James River, but a few Founding Fathers will be present when anti-tax protesters gather at Kanawha Plaza on April 15 to hold a "Tax Day Tea Party."
Part of a nationwide movement, Richmond organizers have recruited hundreds of volunteers to conduct skits, listen to speeches and voice protests against high taxes and big government spending.
Nationally, more than 300 such rallies are scheduled on April 15, according to the National Taxpayers Union. In Virginia, "tea party" rallies also are scheduled in Abingdon, Charlottesville, Franklin County, Lynchburg, Peninsula/Newport News, Reston, Roanoke, Virginia Beach and Winchester.
According to a Web site that is serving as a national online headquarters for the rallies, the protests are a grass-roots effort that arose from CNBC reporter Rick Santelli's Feb. 19 on-air criticism of President Barack Obama's mortgage rescue plan.
Among other things, Santelli said, "The government is promoting bad behavior," and that he was thinking of organizing a "Chicago Tea Party."
The site says that on Feb. 27, "Tea Party" protests took place in more than 40 cities, leading to the expanded effort for April 15.
Sara James, the Richmond Tax Day Tea Party project leader, said "it's almost like it was meant to be. Everyone is coming together for these events."
The Richmond event will feature Patrick Henry and James Madison impersonators, radio personalities, conservatives and, even, pork sandwiches to signify pork-barrel spending, James said.
A stay-at-home mom, James said she got involved because she fears for the future of her three children.
"I'm afraid they won't have the same opportunity I did," she said.
Three issues drew the protesters together, James said. They are high taxes, pork-barrel government spending and actions taken by the Federal Reserve Bank, she said.

What’s happened to this country I served for 20 years I barely recognize it any more They’re mortgaging our future with socialist ideas Cutting our defenses while our troops are still at war. They’re punishing prosperity that’s how the Statists roll Promoting mediocrity at best Bailing out Main Street to seize more control And adding several trillions more to our debt. A revolution’s brewing from sea to shining sea We’re standing up for freedom and sweet liberty Patriots like Limbaugh, Levin, and Hannity The voices of those who love democracy. Our Constitution’s being undermined every day Our Bill of Rights is foreign to our youth “Liberty and Tyranny” is flying off the bookshelves Cause we, the people, are hungry for the truth Congress needs to hear exactly how we feel The “silent majority” no more Keep the grassroots efforts going, tell everyone you know Our Constitution matters and is worth fighting for. A revolution’s brewing from sea to shining sea We’re standing up for freedom and sweet liberty Patriots like Coulter, Malkin, and Huckabee The voices of those who love democracy. It’s our duty to defend our God-given rights Like our Founding Fathers planned from the start Life, liberty, and happiness The things we hold dear to our hearts. A revolution’s brewing from sea to shining sea We’re standing up for freedom and sweet liberty Patriots like Ingraham, Beck, and G.Liddy The voices of those who love democracy. A revolution’s brewing from sea to shining sea We’re standing up for freedom and sweet liberty Patriots uniting from shore to shore To show that Lady Liberty is still worth fighting for...

Thank you for listening!!
The outdoor terrace at Greenvilles Bilo Center will play host to the Upstate Young Republicans post-tax day Tea Party Protest on Friday night April 17th at 6:00 PM. The overwhelming success of Februarys Tea Party that turned out nearly 2000 people made it necessary to move the event to private property. Success sometimes breeds its own challenges, said Carl Clegg, of the Upstate Young Republicans, but these are the challenges that we like to face head-on and with the amazing support and financial contributions of Greenvilles conservatives, we will again unite the voices of thousands and say loudly government is the problem!
