Tea Party At Thief River Falls Today

We got there a bit early. The program was to start at 3pm. Doug Lindgren gave the welcome address. Diane Johnson sang the National Anthem. Doug led the Pledge of Allegiance. Barb Chervestad (the main organizer) gave an address titled "What's the Tea Party All About?" I read the Preamble and some of the Amendments to the Constitution of the United States. Tom Schafer read a "Declaration of Grievances." There were several other scheduled speakers. There were also many who came to the open mike.

Mary made signs for our kids based on the Preamble.

"A more Perfect Union"
"class warfare"

"Establish Justice"
"Activist Judges"

"Domestic Tranquility"
"Global Appeasement"
"Provide for"
not "undercut"
"The Common Defense"
"Promote the General Welfare"
"Confiscating Wealth"

"Secure the Blessing of Liberty For"
not "Rob From"
"Our Posterity"
