Chattanooga Tax Day Tea Party
Talking Points for Radio Call-In

If any of us call in to a talk radio show, we need to make sure we’re all saying the same thing, so we’ve put together this fact sheet.

The most important thing, especially if you have a limited amount of time, is to start out by saying something like this:

“I want to talk about the Chattanooga Tax Day Tea Party that will be held on April 15th from 4-7PM at Ross’s Landing to oppose big government spending.”

By starting out with that, you’re getting the pertinent information out there in case someone is listening.

Here are answers to the basic questions:

Who is responsible for organizing the Chattanooga Tax Day Tea Party?

The National Tax Day Tea Party is a national collaborative grassroots effort organized by Smart Girl Politics, Top Conservatives on Twitter, the DontGo Movement and many other online groups/coalitions.

Chattanooga’s Tax Day Tea Party is being organized by Mark West.  Many local individuals and organizations are helping Mark to organize the event.

What is the Chattanooga Tax Day Tea Party?

The Chattanooga Tax Day Tea Party is a chance for citizens to speak out against out of control government spending.  Over the past 3 months, our national debt has risen to over $11 Trillion because of big-government sponsored spending bills that were passed without considering public opinion.

The Boston Tea Party, a protest which occurred in 1773, was a response to unfair British taxes on tea that were being charged against the will of the people.  In our Tea Party, we will be using this historical model to protest the unchecked government spending that is going on right now.

Where will the Chattanooga Tax Day Tea Party Take Place?

The Chattanooga Tax Day Tea Party will be held at Ross’s Landing, which is in Downtown Chattanooga behind the Aquarium.

When will the Chattanooga Tax Day Tea Party Take Place?

The Chattanooga Tax Day Tea Party will be held on tax day, which is, Wednesday, April 15, from 4:00PM to 7:00PM.

Why the Chattanooga Tax Day Tea Party?

Our nation’s leaders have spent dollar after dollar on pork-filled legislation over the past few months.  The whole time, we’ve been speaking out against it, but they have not listened.  On Tax Day, we’ll be joining our voices together with others across our great city and with those in over 400 other cities across the nation, to tell the government that we’re tired of it.

The Constitution starts out with the words, “WE THE PEOPLE.”  The intention of our founding fathers was for WE THE PEOPLE to govern this nation.  Instead, we have been consistently ignored by those who are supposed to REPRESENT the PEOPLE.
