July 4 Tea Party to be held at Arena Building
Conservatives hoping to build on the strength of the April 15 tax protest will hold a July 4 Tea Party from 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday on the steps of the Arena Building in Arena Park in Cape Girardeau.
The event, announced on the social networking site Facebook, will again be an event aimed at protesting high government spending and what the organizers view as unconstitutional actions to prop up private businesses.
"We are not getting a say in how this money is going," co-organizer Kristi King said. "I am going back to school at age 35. I am a single woman, and I own my home. I am a working citizen and I can't even get help to go to school, and they are bailing out companies and spending money right and left."
In April, a tea party protest event brought about 600 people to Capaha Park.
