Bikers Hold Tea PartySeptember 10, 2009 - 11:42 AM | by: David Lewkowict
Hundreds of bikers from all over the southeastern United States converged on a suburban Atlanta Harley Davidson dealership to have a ‘tea party’.
The crowd revved their engines and the speeches revved the crowd. Themes including health-care, taxes, immigration and the Obama administration’s “socialist agenda” were prevalent.
Julianne Thompson, State Director of the Georgia Tea Party Patriots, says only in America can citizens gather to tell their government “enough is enough.” She says the American people want, ” lower taxes, less spending and more freedom.”
The nearly 750 mile ride, that will take these riders from Roswell, GA to Washington DC, will conclude with a tea party rally on Capitol Hill. Nearly 100 thousand people are expected in DC for Saturday’s event.
The ride started in Tallahassee, FL and will make stops in Charlotte, NC and Richmond, VA.
