Thanks to our own Joe Duckworth for heading down to the Marquette County Courthouse today at noon to file a live report on the air and snap a series of photos from the TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party protesting the U.S. Government’s current direction in taxation.

As you can see from the photos, about 170 people gathered on the steps of the courthouse to listen to various speakers and rally around the anti-taxation message of the event.

According to organizers, the event was a success and showed that there are many people in our area that are not in favor of the direction of the current administration’s plans of taxation.

THE WONDER OF DEMOCRACY!!

Say what you will, it’s good to live in a country where we can peacefully assemble to protest the government without fear of retribution and retaliation.  Here’s hoping there can be a logical and rational outcome of these events in the shaping of the future of our economy!

THE CALL FOR CHANGE!
