Outrage over tax -- spreading across America next -- tax party protests will take part in mass and April 15 tax day.
You'll be there in the thick of it covering a protest in Sacramento.
But many many more tax parties will be -- in because we can't be everywhere to cover them all we thought we bring a couple of them to you today.
Please welcome pace -- of Tennessee Florida Patricia Anderson of Minneapolis Minnesota and they've Kirk and of Salt Lake City you -- I've got to sir would you pace.
Loved loved the out that there that.
Without -- and understand put their Benjamin Franklin huddle I love it.
For those -- don't understand what these tea parties are all about and lightness.
Well first of all -- Tallahassee Florida -- rally in tally and we're gonna have a lot of fun down here but will also be educational.
And what it's all about is.
Our freedoms and protecting our freedoms.
The more taxes you have.
The less freedom you have is the way I look at it.
Patricia is that the way you look -- what's motivating you in -- keep our.
Athletic does even further -- found -- there's such as regards to taxes of course that's also a lot of our liberty isn't.
And a lot of folks like I would say a huge number of folks need to see a lot of them on the fifteenth.
Strongly believe that politicians in Washington that haven't been listening to the citizens.
How we got to get her voice is -- -- very concerned about what's happening to this country and we're gonna.
We're gonna talk about at a rally -- -- -- Patricia what exactly are you concerned about what do you want them here.
I think they need to glad to hear they you know -- those -- us out here and not.
In the heartland we absolutely believe that we're not being listened to Washington's -- -- -- professional politicians is being run by lobbyists you've -- I huge huge deficit -- incident congress is passing bills without even.
In reading -- that's not propose taxes.
Energy now they're solid discussions at the UN we're very concerned about mortgage in our.
Kids text data that we do mortgage our kids future of where there's no changes.
What else do you think it happened because of the direction that this country's going in right now.
Well we have a different point of view my brother and I fourteen years ago went to.
It's an abandoned mig fighter factory in Poland and we had a dream to go build cobra which is.
-- car that was built in the sixties.
And we got there the factory was silent the lights were off and the government had basically abandon their people.
This factory produced.
Three mix today at the height of the Cold War and when we got there in 1995 they had.
From 60000 employees had gone to 24000.
And at a time that was a wonderful thing for you know an entrepreneur to go and to see lots of men standing behind machines that were silent not doing anything.
And you figured all is wonderful and put them to work.
But as I look back on that now fourteen years later it was very depressing and all of a sudden it's like that's that's the road.
That's the end of the road that we have just embarked upon.
And that bill that would have let me go back have been examined them part because we've got to get this out -- more -- time.
But are you also afraid -- at the end of the road here what if this doesn't stop if things don't change the direction that this country's going and -- jam and where do you see it's going.
Entitlements don't work we need to get back to personal responsibility.
And if we don't get there one of the things that's happened is there's more.
Not taxpayers almost been there are taxpayers.
So as some about grandfather said.
Watch the electric -- people electorate and the people learn to borrow money from their neighbors and from the public treasury.
Where their own personal benefit.
Then you have a real threat to our republic.
So that's what it's about.
-- -- so our democracy is the mob rule what we have and we should maintain that the republic.
As Benjamin Franklin said.
It's a republic.
If you can keep it.
I think we're right at that stage where that's the concern that we will be able to keep that's a lot of people are concerned that we're heading into decline as a nation I think the other.
Gentlemen talked about that and and that's very real and -- we gonna become socialist nation like -- -- Europe and and part that failed or are we get -- stay strong.
Patricia and everyone else we've got less cinnamon I just -- asked quickly.
Do you feel like this movement is picking up -- Patricia.
Absolutely it's picking up steam in all these -- parties -- started with that grass but let's activists is not part of say that -- there's.
Because Democrats and independents and Republicans and libertarians neighborhood.
What about -- is -- Well like I like I said we've seen the end of this road you know we were there at that far anyway picking up quite a message though the -- like a lot of people are starting to resonate with the general public.
Yeah it exactly that's in the days and that's what I tell them think we've seen this we know this is going and people lose their jobs -- the people who pay for this.
Are really the working -- and that's what we've we've seen in Poland and that's what I keep telling him.
We've seen the end of this road and and you end up with a society.
When it socialists -- the moral foundations of the society -- -- It's very -- Ben -- Janet Franklin.
I'm originally expecting this week two Tea Party.
We will have at least a thousand people.
I am really hoping for a lot more but I'm I'm quite sure we're gonna have a South America on the steps of the historic.
-- capital here in Tallahassee.
All right well thank everybody have a lift your protest is the most American thing he can do whether people agree with you or not.
I'm glad you're wrong I really think it's a big mistake the mainstream media seems to me missing out in this your voices are getting louder appreciate it thank --
