The Rochester, NY Tea Party protest held yesterday was a resounding success. Over 40 concerned citizens ranging in age from college students to seniors met at the Main Street bridge over the Genesee River to dump tea into the water.

Speakers detailed the historic Boston Tea Party and linked its message to current events. A short march was held, to the corner of Clinton and Main, in front of the convention center where NY Governor Patterson was appearing.

The “Fair Share” leftists were inside, out of the wind, pushing their message of punishing the successful with higher taxes. Outside, the Gadsden flag, “Don’t Tread On Me!” flew proudly along with the American flag. Signs protesting New York’s tax burden and the burden on future generations imposed by the stimulus package were held high, and passersby honked their horns in support.

    I’d love to join you for the April 15th get together but like many pople I have to work (to pay for the give aways).

    Do you have anything in mind for the future during a weekend or perhaps at night? I would think you would get a better turn out.

    Just a thought, keep up the good work.
