    FLA: Tea Party Goes On In Spite of Goverment Intervention
    Freedom; Posted on: 2009-04-05 13:28:15 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]
    Cape Coral, Florida: city officials canceled a tax day tea party gathering because they felt "too many people could show-up” took place anyway.

    Hundreds showed up at a tea party in Cape Coral, and they were not happy. The political activists expressed their anger over taxes and what they call out-of-control government spending.

    Attendees wanted just three minutes to speak their mind and hear what others had to say.

    "We don't like what's happening to our country. We're tired. We don't want more taxes. We don't want a big government. We don't want Washington running car companies and insurance companies. They can't even run themselves," Beth Neuhausel said.

    Mary Rakovich said, "The spending - the immense spending that Washington's doing, and they're not anywhere done with the spending."

    There was no messing around. People just wanted to get straight to the point.

    Organizer Lynn Rosko said there was "no music, no entertainment, (and) no food. It was just: Come get together; talk about the issues."

    "We've all been asleep for too long. We need to wake up and get involved again and get active and make ourselves be heard," Rakovich said.

    Whether it's heard from a megaphone or read off a poster - the bottom line at the tea party was money.

    Neuhausel said, "My hope is that my grandchildren, and I will have nine by August, grow up in the same country I did, with freedom, with liberty, without world money."

    This was just one of many tea parties in Southwest Florida. Many others will be held April 15th.
