Activists hold tax day tea party rallies across Virginia today

Anita Kumar

Today is tax day. And it promises to be a busy one -- not just because people are hurrying to turn in their taxes.

In Virginia, as in many places across the nation, there will a slew of tea party rallies as activists try to send a message to lawmakers in Richmond and Washington to stop spending.

The Virginia Chapter of the Constitutional Sovereignty Alliance will host a march from the state Capitol to the U.S. Capitol, stopping at tea parties in Fredericksburg and Prince William County along the way. Organizers have invited Republican U.S. Reps. Eric Cantor, Frank Wolf, Rob Wittman, Randy Forbes and Bob Goodlatte and Dels. Scott Lingamfelter and Rich Anderson to join them.

Meanwhile, George Allen, former U.S. senator and governor and maybe statewide candidate, and Ben Marchi, state director of Americans for Prosperity, will be addressing three rallies in Woodbridge, Harrisonburg and Staunton.

The state's three Republican statewide officials do not have any special events planned for tax day -- Gov. Bob McDonnell is spending the day in Richmond, Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling is in Italy, as we told you earlier this week, and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is speaking at a Liberty University conference in the evening.

Cucci-coo is going to be at at Liberty U.? What a surprise.

Oh well, he's probably not too sure of his reception at any of VA's state-supported schools.

Except that Liberty is a state supported school in the sense that they can be awarded contracts for services. I think Coo-coo is well aware of how his radical agenda has isolated the majority of legitimate schools, which is why he's at LU.

the tea parties are merely republican party events in disguise so they can hide the republican legacy of those 8 horrible years under GW Bush. the republicans want everyone to forget how they totally supported bush and his failed economic policies when they now are critical of obama. the "teabaggers" want a clean slate. but if you look at who their speakers are, who is paying for their rallies, who is running their groups, its bush republicans all the way.

Is it a coincidence that the Constitutional Sovereignty Alliance's initials are CSA? I think not.

Tea Party, know thy enemy. Ronald Reagan, Father of America's debt, started America on the road to decline with his tax cuts for the rich (himself) that went to debt for our kids to pay. Reagan doubled the entire National Debt in the sixth year of his presidency. Reagan created more debt that the 39 presidents before him in over 200 years. It'a almost unfathomable Reagan could ring up so much debt in such a short time. For what? Tax cuts that mostly went to the rich.

Tea Party, your enemy is not the Democrats. Your enemy is the very rich.
The tax cuts to the rich Rich.
The Rich who paid 90% tax in during WWII
The Rich who paid 70% tax when Reagan took office
The Rich who paid 28% tax when Reagan left office
The Wall Street Rich
The Fox News Rich
The Rush Limbaugh Rich
The cryin' Glenn Beck Rich

Know thy enemy Tea Party, or you will become your own enemy.

Interesting posts. It's amazing what you can do when you have so much spare time on your hands - except when you need to leave your grandmother's basement to throw out her trash or walk Mitzi. Keep me laughing, people!

In 2008 the federal govt. spent more per capita in Virginia than any other state (twice what Utah got per capita). I think the powers that aren't, in Virginia, are correct; the federal govt. throws away too much money in Virginia. So Billyraybob, no $15,000+ (2008 bucks) for you this year. You can put off the dentist for another 10 years can't 'ya?
