The North County Tea Party Patriots Rally happened in Atascadero last Saturday, April 16. About 400 people turned out for various reasons. I asked some of them why they came and captured their answers on video. It was all completely impromptu, and except for my husband, I had no idea who people were when I approached them. The last interview was the most interesting, since the person who approached me was antagonistic to the cause. I recorded our conversation.
Some people think all the tea party people care about is taxes. If you follow the link below, you’ll see they are concerned with many other issues as well: the environment, small business, health care, branches of government grabbing and trying to exercise powers not granted to them by the Constitution, and more. You will hear speakers who are experts in their fields discuss these topics.
