May 2nd Tax Cut Rally-Capitol steps-St Paul, MN

One might think that Minnesota's formal
Tea Party Protest was late since Saturday's
date was May 2nd. Not the case. A formal
Tea Party was held on April 15th, just as
yours was. Today's event was something
separate from that; a follow-up of sorts.
Today's event was the annual Tax Cut Rally.
Again, ANNUAL! Several thousand concerned
tax payer's turned out on this beautiful early
May Saturday to put an exclaimation point to
the Tea Party's of April 15th.

Yes, it is routine for like-minded Minnesotan's
to demonstrate annually as legislators will
sometimes work through the weekend on the
State's budget. That was certainly the case this
past weekend as MN Gov.Tim Pawlenty helped
lead the chants from the lawn of the capitol
building. Mr Pawlenty promised that his "veto pen
was ready"! Other noteable speakers included
US Rep Michelle Bachmann (R), and local
talk-radio host Jason Lewis who was
instrumental in the organizational and
promotion of this
annual event.
Lewis was also considered keynote speaker
for the event.

would have it) made the TV news on ABC. (see video)

Michelle Bachmann from this monumental grilling! (see video)
