NW Arkansas Tea Party, Fayetteville

America is getting ready to get really Tea-ed off April 15th. NW Arkansas has two opportunities to let Washington know that we intend to end the tyranny of the big spending politicians. You still have a couple of days to make your signs. Laurie has sent out this press release for Fayetteville.
Subject: Tea Party Press Release
Fayetteville, Arkansas
For Immediate Release

The Fayetteville Arkansas Tax Day Tea Party citizens will be assembling in Downtown Fayetteville around the Fayetteville Square and Town Center plaza on April 15th at 4:00- 7:00 p.m.
The Fayetteville Arkansas Tax Day Tea Party is an informal demonstration organized of, by and for citizens who are no longer willing to tolerate an irresponsible, unresponsive government, Republican and Democrat alike. They do not agree with any form of government that continues to rapidly encroach on individual liberties while creating enormous and financially bloated government programs that are amassing crippling economic burdens for America’s future generations. Let us be clear in that we are not Anti-government, to the contrary WE are the government, as is stated in our founding documents by those who founded this nation in liberty.
The gathering is intended to send a firm and respectful statement: ENOUGH! Our mission is to unite the state of Arkansas district by district, so that we can affirm our state Constitution, confirm our sovereignty as a state, and enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Then to extend this sentiment state by state, to defend our national Constitution and our God given liberties. We will encourage attendees to become informed and significantly engaged so that they can defend and protect their individual rights, using the rule of law clearly set forth in our sacred Constitution.
Participants will depart with an informational sheet on how to stay involved united and determined in unbending resolve to effect the needed changes and recommitment to our founding documents.
There will be citizen speakers, patriotic music, voter registration tables and a canned food drive. Everyone is asked to bring some canned foods to help those people and families in need.

Elected officials from any political party are invited and welcome to attend. However, this is not intended as a forum for politicians to speak. Citizens of varied backgrounds who are organizing this informal protest of ongoing governmental policies ask:

That everyone attending please maintain an underlying spirit of civility and respect. We want a peaceful, unifying demonstration.

That anyone displaying signs please ensure they are not threatening or vulgar and that they focus on the issue at hand, overburdening tax debt of future generations caused by the out of control spending and our freedoms and liberties being usurped.

That everyone please clean-up after themselves and others when they see debris or trash. Downtown Fayetteville is a beautiful treasure and we want to make sure we leave it exactly as we find it.

Tax Day Tea Party Events are being held across the nation in 2,000 U.S. cities, at least 36 of which are in Arkansas. To be added to the Fayetteville Arkansas Tax Day Tea Party update/info list please email Laurie Masterson at

The Tea Party at Rogers will be from 530 to 730PM at the Frisco Stage. They don't have a Facebook Group but email for more information.

In TN, they are using a "tailgate party/family friendly" format as a positive statement for their Tea Party. I thought that sounded like such a good idea!

I have received notice from Blogger that they are blocking my ability to write posts. I have requested that they review my blog but I have no idea when they will unlock me. I am attending the Tea Party in Fayetteville but may not be able to post anything from it that evening. I have made arrangements with David Kincaid at The Arkansas Project ( to make a Tea Party post in the event I'm stilled blocked.

I'll be there this government spending nonsense is getting out of control.Our state accepting that so called stimulus money "porkulus" was a grave mistake. The federal government will be able to dictate how our state does business and in turn we will be subserviant to the feds. NOT ME they will never take my guns or my freedom of speech.I say that "I'll keep my guns, my money, and my freedom they can keep the change"
