TEA PARTY EXPRESS HARTFORD RALLY

It's time to take our country back! Join our efforts to bring REAL CHANGE to our government! Join the Hartford Tea Party Patriots in welcoming the Tea Party Express national bus tour when it arrives in Connecticut to rally Americans to oppose the out-of-control spending, higher taxes, bailouts and growth in the size and power of the government. The Hartford rally is part of a series of tea party rallies being held across the nation from August 28th to September 12th 2009, beginning in California and traveling eastward, and reaching its final destination: the big 09.12.09 Taxpayer March on Washington, DC

DATE: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2009 TIME: 10 AM TO 1 PM PLACE: HARTFORD (location to be determined)

The Tea Party Express Hartford Rally will highlight some of the worst offenders in Congress who have voted for higher spending, higher taxes, and government intervention in the lives of American families and businesses. These Members of Congress have infringed upon the freedom of the individual in this great nation, and it's time for us to say: "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH".

The Tea Party Express Hartford Rally will feature national leaders in the anti-tax, conservative, tea party movement, along with musical performances, including the following:

Lew Uhler(Chairman, National Tax Limitation Committee PAC),

Deborah Johns & Mark Williams (Vice Chairpersons, Our Country Deserves Better PAC),

Amy Kremer(National Coordinator, Tea Party Patriots),

- Lloyd Marcus (performing the "American Tea Party Anthem"), and Revue (performing "A Bailout Song").

In addition to both national and local speakers, and musical entertainment, there will be information tables, and other family-friendly activities. Stay tuned to www.thehartfordteapartypatriots.com for more information about the Hartford rally, and go to www.teapartyexpress.org for more information about the national tour.

THE 09.12.09 MARCH ON WASHINGTON April 15th 2009 was an historic day for those who love freedom. Hundreds of thousands of Americans came out to protest the massive government spending that is burdening our country with huge debt and future tax increases. People came out of their homes and into the streets to stand together and say “Enough!” But the media would have you believe that only a few people showed up, and that those who did were not representative of the American people. Of course we know the truth, and we know that April 15th 2009 was just the beginning of something BIG!

The champions of big government are now working to pass a new national energy tax, government-run health care, and other policies & programs that will cripple our lives and our livelihoods even further. We must keep the pressure on our elected officials as they vote on how much more of our money they will spend, and how much more of our money they will confiscate. Many of you have been wondering "what's next?" for the tea party movement... well, THIS IS IT!

It's time to take the tea party movement directly to Washington, DC. Please join thousands of Americans from across the country on September 12th to deliver a message to our elected officials: "WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH!" We have had enough of the out-of-control spending, the bailouts, the growth of big government, and the soaring deficits. And we reject the future tax increases that will be imposed on us and our children to pay for all of this. For more information, please go to:

www.912dc.org. For help with making your own travel arrangements to this event, please check out the "Travel Logistics" page.

CONNECTICUT BUS TRIP TO THE 09.12.09 MARCH ON WASHINGTON If you are interested in traveling to Washington, DC by bus with other tea party patriots from Connecticut, please e-mail: 912bustrip@gmail.com for more details, payment information, and FAQs.

I have to ask...

Why?

I’m serious now. I am a ProtestWarrior and stood outside Ft Monmouth to counter-protest lefties who were vomiting on service members and their families - but that was direct, tangible support of the troops.

I’m just asking; what is the goal? Protesting for protesting’s sake is a very leftist thing to do.

There is one near me on 9/11 in Toms River, NJ and I will be there if I can get just one good reason for doing so.
I just want to know what the end game is What is the goal?

Please check out what I hope will become the rallying cry for the Tea Party Movement.It’s a song I wrote for our local Tax Day Tea Party here in SW Florida called “We The People” You can hear it at “goodguysusa.com” I’d love to see the express use it as a theme song. You’re welcome to use it in Hartford as well. I’d be happy to send you a mp3. I’m an out of work,outof money painting contractor who would love to be able to make a living writing more conservatively themed songs. I have no backing, management or industry contacts. I’m totally dependant upon like-minded people to help spread the word. Any help you could offer would be appreciated more than you’ll ever know. Thanks

Jim Vicevich show is getting better than ever. He has the unique gift of complementing his callers on their points. I wish him the best on his health.

Jim Vicevich is getting not only better with complementing people who call in to his show, which includes I, who is also a good friend of his. His show is getting much more popular on the local level. He is doing well health wise right now and if my memory is correct, will be on vacation next week. One thing I know, is that he was the first to use the “mob” term for in reference to us who are oppose to Obamacare, calling his callers and chatters his little mobsters. This was before Rush and Sean started to do the same thing. Great that you got back. Take care.:)=^..^=

An honor to have the Express in God-forsaken Hartford on such a momentous day! I put the vacation day in the moment I saw this. I am there. Who is going to the Republican Lite seminar? I hear Rudy Giuliani urging me to come see Colon(sic) Powell, et al for only $19. Laura Bush is in the list, but not too sure about supporting Traitor Powell.

Yeah...that’s just it. I dunno know about that.

I think the “Health-care reform” town hall meetings do a far better job of both of those things.

For one thing, the media covers them more. For another, you are directly confronting the enemy (Congress) with others there who might be influenced.

At tea parties you are preaching to the choir with little positive media coverage. It seems like much heat with very little light (as opposed to the town hall confrontations or my earlier example of what we do at ProtestWarrior).

Anyway, that is why no matter how much I want to get excited about the idea, I just can’t. I wish they had a Town Hall meeting near me. Last night I was furious after watching the news.

Oh, no they DONT cover them more than the large rallies!

When several thousand people attend a rally, you can bet your sweet bippy they come back and talk about it!

Also, when people read about several thousand people attending a rally i the Capital, you can bet your sweet bippy people hear about it more than a small townhall meeting like we had in Hartford,Simsbury and Woodstock, regardless of how many YouTube videos had to go out to let people see what happened inside!

You must be just a curmudgeon! These things WORK!

Yeah...that'll work. That will motivate me to go. Your powers of persuasion are otherworldly. You should be in sales.

I don't think they work. I see no evidence of it. I see far more coverage of the town hall meetings than the tea parties, and I have been counter-protesting and demonstrating for eight years.

That is my opinion, but I am not trying to convince anyone to NOT go. I was looking for an argument that would convince me TO go. If you're gonna be a smart-ass to a potential ally who is on your side of the fence ideologically, you are of no use in trying to change the minds of those who oppose you or who are on the fence and that makes you a liability.

Look, if you dont want to go, stay off the thread, you look like a disrupter.

If you dont want to go, then just go away, okay?

We dont need negative people trying to stop a good thing.

Just stay out of it and mind your own business.

Go pound sand. I'm not a disruptor and I'll post wherever I want.

You need a course in reading comprehension.

I came here LOOKING for a reason to go. I was hoping for a well thought out, persuasive argument that addressed my questions. What I got was emoting, 3rd grade level arguments, and dubious claims. That was followed by insults.

Just stay out of it and mind your own business.

Kiss my kiester.

There was NOTHING aggressive or insulting or otherwise "disrupting" about any of my posts until you got nasty. I asked simple questions and made civil comments. here is my original post in toto;

I have to ask...

Why?

The protests are against cap and trade, which will ruin our economy and also against government run healthcare which will ruin our economy even faster. Obama and the dem’s plans will ruin our country, that is why we are protesting.

Come on now, I’m not an imbecile. I understand WHY there are Tea parties.

That is not the point.

I do not question the motivation for protest, nor the dedication and values of the protesters.

I question the TECHNIQUE.

When I have protested (or counter-protested) in the past, we attacked the enemy DIRECTLY and on his soil. That meant across the street from the camp the leftoids set up at an Army base, or in front of a Congressman’s office, or in Washington at the Vietnam memorial when the moonbats came to deface it.

Tea parties seem like a bit self aggrandizing. Like emotional masturbation. Much heat with very little light.

Look, they are named TEA PARTIES. The inspiration for the name is the Boston Tea Party. That was a powerful, direct act of defiance against the enemy on his own ground (the ships). It would not have been all that radical or threatening if it was a bunch of guys burning their own tea 20 miles from Boston in some park.

There is a great scene in Mississippi Burning when the local Blacks, who had had enough of the lynchings and church burnings, rioted. The problem is they were burning their own neighborhoods! When the FBI agents saw the local cops monitoring the riot, but not interfering, they asked why they did not stop the riots. The cops laughed and said who cares. Just a bunch of ______ tearing up their own stuff.

I see the Tea Parties a little like that.

The town hall protests are different - they take the fight directly to the enemy, on his ground. They get people on the sidelines fired up while the Tea Parties preach to the choir. I mean, honestly, if Cindy Sheehan and Code Pink held an anti-war protest in some park in the middle of no where, would you care? Would anyone? Far more effective for them to protest outside Bush’s ranch. That would piss you off right? That would become an issue that would make it more likely to get attention and influence people.

So like I said, go ahead. I am not condemning anyone else for going, I’m just not convinced that they are anything more than one giant circle jerk.

Very few of us have had any access to so-called “town hall” meetings, held in small auditoriums, requiring you to register with your name & address at the door.

The “American Tea Party lyrics (Copyright©2009 Zephyrus Music) appear below:

Mr President!
Your stimulus is sure to bust
Its just a socialistic scheme
The only thing it will do
Is kill the American Dream

You wanna take from achievers
Somehow you think that’s fair.
And redistribute to those folks
Who won’t get out of their easy chair

We’re havin’ a tea party across this land
If you love this country
Come on and join our band
We’re standin’ up for freedom and liberty
Cause patriots have shown us freedom ain’t free

So when they call you a racist cause you disagree
It just another of their dirty tricks to silence you and me.
I believe in the Constitution and all it stands for.
Anyone who tramples it should be booted out the door.

Now we’re not advocating violence
That’s what the so-called peace crowd do
We’re talkin’ peaceful protest to defend the red, white and blue

We gotta vote out these clowns who don’t love the USA
Who stay up late losing sleep fearing what the French might say

Freedom ain’t free (Stand up for America)
Freedom ain’t free (Gotta take a stand)
Freedom ain’t free (Mr Obama)
Freedom ain’t free (we work hard for our money)
Freedom ain’t free (Don’t give it away)
Freedom ain’t free (Save the day)
Freedom ain’t free (Don’t go givin’ it away)
Freedom ain’t free (It ain’t gonna work)
Freedom ain’t free (Give back our freedom)
Freedom ain’t free (Give back our liberty)
Freedom ain’t free (I love my country)

Is this the official thread for the event?

LET OUR VOICES BE HEARD!!!!

Thank you Race!

'zelig' and I are bickering over what signs to make for Hartford (possibly Bridgeport) and for DC. I'm going to make one two-sided sign for me and one for him, and use the same signs for all rallies.

I was going to do: Socialism = Trickle-down Poverty and something like: ObamaCare Makes Me Sick

Zelig doesn't like those... do you have any other suggestions? :o)

Thanks... the bickering continues... LOL. We'll come up with something.

I'd rather not use the Kenyan Usurper one... may be counterproductive for these events. I mainly want to attack the healthcare thing, and socialism. I do like your first 2 ideas, though!

I went to the Freedomkeys site and had printed up 3 more little signs, one that has the Obama Joker, but I may not bother either because last week I think one of the pro-Obamacare people took the first Obama Joker one. Got two more that stay on subject.

WTIC radio reported that 1,500 attended. It was cold and rainy. The crowd was very enthusiastic. The entertainment by the Tea Party Express was great. They gathered all the sign carriers on the Capitol steps for a group photo.
