Saturday, February 27th at 1:30 p.m. on the steps of the Arch by the riverfront, patriots from St. Louis and surrounding areas will gather to mark the first anniversary of the St. Louis Tea Party.
A year ago, Bill Hennessy and I had no idea what to expect when we arrived at the Arch for the first tea party in the area. It was the dawn of a new political age, a new movement. I honestly though we’d attract maybe 50 other like-minded citizens.
We had over a thousand. They kept converging, marching down the street with their Gadsen flags, American flags, their signs, all dressed for the weather. It was an amazing thing to behold.
We’ve weathered many battles together this past year. We’ve rallied together, attended townhalls, contacted our legislators, made our voices heard. We’ve stalled a fauxcare bill, cap-and-tax, we sent a message to the establishment in NY23, and created victories in Virginia, New Jersey, and Massachusetts.
Join us once again as we dump some tea in the Mississippi.
