That's right. Back by popular demand we are having another Tea Party. 2000+ attended the April 15 event. Let's set a new record. It is time to speak out about wasteful government spending and excessive taxes. Tell the President and the Congress that we don't want Government Controlled Health Care.

Hundreds turn out for local "Tea Party" rally

By The Associated Press
Published: June 6, 2009


Several hundred people turned out Saturday for a Tea Party at Winston-Square Park.

It was a follow-up to an April 15 gathering that was part of a nationwide protest against taxes. According to media reports, more than 1,000 people turned out for that rally, but organizers said the turnout was more than 2,000.

Saturday's event, which was not tied to a nationwide protest, drew a smaller crowd, but organizers said they were happy with the turnout.

The rally began at noon and focused on worries about government-controlled health care, individual freedoms, high taxes, media bias, and the need for a small government.

Some protestors stood on Marshall Street holding up signs with slogans such as "Free Markets Not Free Loaders" and "Revolution is Brewing" while waving at passing motorists. Others listened to music and speakers including Vernon Robinson, a former member of the Winston-Salem City Council who lost a bid for U.S. Congress in 2006.

"Conservatives typically don't do protests, but we're learning," said Fred Benson, an electrical contractor from Clemmons who was one of the organizers of the rally. He said that members of the North Carolina Tea Party group at ncteaparty.com wanted to have another rally and decided to focus on the health care debate this time.

Benson said that more tea parties are planned, with the next one possibly on July 4, though details are still being worked out.
