What to Expect at the Atlanta Tea Party

The Atlanta Tax Day Tea Party is one of the hundreds of the Nationwide Tax Day Tea Party Protests. These Tea Parties started as a way to express outrage over stimulus spending, special projects or "Pork Projects," and increased taxes. Currently, there are over 500 Tax Day Tea Parties planned across the country on April 15th.

In Atlanta, the demonstration will begin at 7:00 pm in front of the Steps on the State Capitol. There is a Braves game that starts at 7:05. Several roads are closing and traffic is being re-routed to various places to make up for the street closings. Expect traffic to be even more nightmare-ish than usual. The Atlanta Police have advised us to encourage everyone to take Marta. If you take Marta, you can get off the train at the 5 Points Station so that you do not have to change trains.

Sean Hannity will be broadcasting live from the Atlanta Tea Party. His show, Hannity's America, will have a makeshift studio/stage setup from where he will broadcast.

With Sean Hannity's announcement of his live broadcast, the crowds are expected to be quite large. There will be an elevated stage so those near the front can see. There will also be speakers and 2 jumbotron tvs. If you are further back in the crowd, you should still be able to see and hear the events.

Bring handmade protest signs related to fiscal responsibility. The signs must NOT be on stakes or poles of any kind. Bring flags (again are NOT mounted stakes or poles)to wave in the crowd. Wear red to stand out in the crowd and to symbolize that Washington is running this country into "the red." Bring you loud voice and be prepared to chant, shout, and yell.

It may be hot or cold. You can never really tell with Atlanta weather at this time of the year. It may be raining. Even if it rains, we are still having the Atlanta Tax Day Tea Party outside the Capitol. If it does rain, come in rain gear and bring umbrellas. Imagine the impact to Washington if they see a crowd of thousands in the rain protesting high taxes and government waste.

The program itself is being nailed down as we speak. There will be music, guest speakers, videos, and more.

The Atlanta Police and the Georgia State Capitol Police will be on the grounds providing security, crowd, and traffic control. Remember these are public servants and give them the respect they deserve. If they ask you to remove a sign from a stake, they are only doing so for your safety and the safety of others in the crowd.

We have ordered porta potties and they will be on the grounds. No money can change hands on the Capitol Grounds so we will NOT have refreshments for sale. You can bring your own water and snacks if you would like. Volunteers will stay afterward to clean up. Do your part to help in the clean up process by taking your trash with you.

Bring cameras both still and video to record the event. There will be a central place to upload images after the event. We will add a link to that site in the next few days.

Join us in this exciting and historic endeavor as we tell Washington, We the People are silent no more! We the People expect and demand fiscal responsibility and accountability!!

  1. I'm so happy we the people are standing up for our rights. The goverment does not represent the people. Its all about self preservation and money not what our founding fathers envisioned. this country is going in the wrong direction and we need to change things.

  4. All I can say is "Thank God". I've been wanting and praying for something like this to happen. I'm not going to be able to make the rally in Atlanta. I've got to work at BOTH jobs that day. But believe me...I will have everyone in my prayers. Thank you for doing this. There are a lot of people that I know who feel the same way.

  6. My husband and I are so very proud to attend the Atlanta Teaparty on the 15th. Too many American lives have been lost. Too many American families have paid the price for our Freedom, to let the likes of the left just abandon them. If we don't fight for our rights as Americans, we are going to lose our rights and freedoms very soon. WE MUST STAND TOGETHER AND DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO BE FREE.

  7. Two tea parties in one day!

    I'll be flying to Atlanta after I attend the Washington D.C. Tea Party & March on Washington. It's tricky logistics, but I had to do it. Plus, who could miss chance to see Sean Hannity?!

    I plan to canvas neighborhoods with fliers this weekend to get more folks involved. Those of us who stand for freedom and small gov't are the minority in Maryland, but our neighbors in VA put up a good fight!

    If you see a tired-looking brunette by herself, that would be me! Stop and say hello!

    Another front we should hit hard is boycotting biased media, Hollywood, their advertisers and sponsors.

  8. Thank you for this opportunity to join with others of like mind, and I believe there are many, to help take our country back from those who would enslave us. We must get rid of those politicians who are spending and controlling us and selling us out to slavery.

  13. I don't have any bells to wear, but I WILL BE THERE. I hope everyone also signs the petition for redress of our grievances which we plan to present to government during our "We the People March on Wasington."

    I really like Susie's suggestion "Another front we should hit hard is boycotting biased media, Hollywood, their advertisers and sponsors. I think we know the media, but does anyone know the best way to identify their sponsors? (without watching their shows, which I will not do)

  14. What exacty is going to happen again? You're going to assemble near the capital building, wave some signs, hear some speeches, and then what? How does that change a thing? This is going to be an opportunity for some of you to get on TV when Sean Hannity broadcasts from Atlanta, but not much else. No one is listening and you're not going to make them. Marching with signs doesn't accomplish anything. Are any of you going to stop paying taxes? Cause if enough people do that, then you have something.

    ReplyDelete
  15. To Mr or Ms Anonymous, I have one thing to say to you. What are you afraid of? I'm a War Veteran and this is the first time I've ever picked up a sign in protest and I'm sure it won't be my last. Seam Hannity rocks, but the reason I'm showing up is to make ... CHANGE, because I'm not happy with the current ... CHANGE ... YOU BETTER BELIEVE ... someone is listening because if they weren't ... you wouldn't be writing ... with your negative response. One last thing, Liberal Socialists have been marching with signs for decades, seems to work for them, so I'm sure it will work for this '''GRASS ROOT ''' EXPLOSION.

  18. I love the idea of the rally and have never participated in one previously but I am willing to get involved to save this nation and the future for my children and grandchildren. I am concerned also that the clowns in the republican party that are just as responsible for this mess as the democrats are trying to hijack this event to further their own ends. Thrown them all out and bring on the Fair Tax!

  19. First time to protest...cause it's usually the liberal left. It's about time we take our country back! This is only the beginning of a very long journey...but too many have bled & died to make our freedom's possible. The NEW American Revolution starts NOW!!!!

  20. My husband I are going to be there. It is our first protest ever, but we have two children ages 4 and 6. We are doing this for them. The debt Obama and friends are racking up will mean bondage for my children. My husband is barely hanging on to his job. We have to fight. The left gets to protest anything they want and it gets into the media. I will be extremely interested to see if this movement gets any coverage. Regardless, we have to stand up NOW for what we believe. Look what doing nothing has gotten us.

  24. What a joke! Do you retards even know what you're protesting? Is it the bailout? If so, why didn't you protest your boy Bush when he released the funds last year? You realize the original Boston Tea Party's cry was "No Taxation Without Representation? What's your cry, "We lost the election and now we're pissed." If Hannity is your hero, you're already doomed.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow, if only we had protested 8 weeks after Bush took office! Maybe we could have avoided disaster.

    You all realize that Atlanta is a liberal town. You'd be better off having your cute little redneck party up in Jackson County.

  27. NON-Partisan, AMERICANS!
    Remember us? Both parties have gotten us here and both parties must listen. It's time to tell Washington to "Grow up" and behave like adults. We all have to learn to live within our means. Our children and grandchildren are depending on US.

  28. Does anyone know how far it is from where Marta stops at the capital and where the tea party is? My husband has difficulty walking very far. Thanks.

  29. Will be there and as for the last two negative responses...if you think the protest is useless; then why are you taking the time to post on this site?

    Media is laughing?...are you one of them? True journalists would report the news as it happens and without bias...guess that leaves you out.

    Thanks to all the organizers for making this reality!

  30. Patriots one and all come join the crowd! I think one of the BEST things about the whole movement is that MOST of the protestors have never done this before, myself included. DC can try to ignore us, but they best not! After all, WE are the people they are trying to strong arm into financing their agenda, one we are all completely opposed to. Did they really think they could attack our pocketbooks AND our way of life and we'd all just go along with it? That's why the "silent majority" logo is so appropriate for us all.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Will be watching you all from here in Illinois! I read comments of 'some' of the above and I feel pity on them! They really 'don't understand the Constitution - what this country was built on and how we are at risk!" We are the SILENT MAJORITY NO MORE! AMERICA - we're here and we are not going away! Our TEA PARTY was great 2 weeks ago and now people COME to our web site and learn how to contact Washington / be heard and STOP the SPENDING AND IT REALLY IS FAR MORE AT STEAK!!!The issues are like none - of those above- even begin to conceive! GO ATLANTA! and the REST OF OUR GREAT NATION TEA PARTIES 4.15 and beyond! T<> ;-)

  32. I don't think anyone said Bush was "our boy"? Do you really think any of us could CARE LESS what the MEDIA thinks of us???? Georgia, a "liberal" state?? You've got to be kidding me! I'm from the northeast, THAT is the land of the liberals. "Rednecks"??? Call us the people with the money who are not WILLING to support the likes of you or your lazy "take care of me" social agendas. We try to be positive and as usual, the angry liberals resort to petty name calling and uneducated assumptions with no basis in fact.

  33. Regarding the trash after the inauguration - I really think that THIS and ALL events of this type - WILL BE CLEAN - and without the trash as the inaugration folks!
    Ours on 4.4 - we had a 'clean up committee' and NO TRASH needed to be cleaned up! We are first class people (of all parties) who RESPECT the country and our surroundings - and I think that the TEA PARTIES will show that all over the country! ;-) hope that proves true as it did with ours!

  34. The MEDIA - can laugh at this ALL they want to! I have not watched them for years - as they are 'truly reporting the news.
    Their over-all ratings are so low these day many are desperate!
    Was something 'taken away'?
    My money is taken away to pay for abortions for people here and in other countries!
    My money is being taken away for removing tattoo's of people in California.
    My money is being taken away find a better way to grow a blueberry.
    TRILLIONS is being put on our children and their children in DEBT.
    My money was taken away - to allow the AGI people to spend time in lavish resorts.
    My money was taken away to SEE A PRESIDENT FIRE A CEO - and so HE and the GOVERNMENT could TAKE CONTROL!
    My money was taken away and given to BANKS - that WANT TO GIVE IT BACK - but Washington doesn't want it back........ because THEY WANT BIG GOVERNMENT AND CONTROL!!!! DANGEROUS to you so ignorant not to know that!!!
    WE ARE LOSING OUR FREEDOM RAPIDLY and so YES - there is much being taken away from me AND YOU- and seems your so unfamiliar with what IS GOING ON - and could care less.

  36. I'll be at this protest with over 11 friends...and counting. We all come from different parties...Reps & Dems even a Libertarian. Our plans were made long before Sean and Newt decided to jump in. For 99% of us, this is our first protest but not our last. All of us are finished with outrageous taxes that are feeding an outrageous government. My taxes will be paid but it makes me sick to think that "we the people" are paying the tab for ridiculous things like Dem/Rep cocktail parties. Don't we deserve better than that? Our government is out of control...I firmly believe this is the first step of a significant change. If you believe in something, speak out.

  37. Your right Anonymous
    Maybe had we stood up when Maxine Waters and Barney Frank stated that there wasnt anything wrong with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac we wouldnt be bailing out people who could not afford to buy homes in the first place and as far as the first bail out, most of us were probably against that too. Who cares if Atlanta is a Liberal town, thank God, I still live in a country where I have the right to assemble and protest where ever I choose. As far as taking something from me, my children, and my grandchildren, who else do you suppose is going to pay for this administrations shopping frenzie? Oh, I'm sorry, you obviously believe that money grows on trees. As far as the media laughing at these parties, obviously they have not read the end of story: WE WIN IN THE END!!!!

  38. Ditto to the previous comment. The government's waisteful and outrageous spending has got to stop. Many of our government representatives are not listening and were not paying attention long ago when this whole thing started. The warning bells have been ringing for years. We put these representatives in office to serve and represent the will of the people....That's obviously not happening as we are here today. We need leaders who are paying attention, smart enough to know they shouldn't sign something they haven't read, and will act in the best interest of US citizens (the tax payer! What a concept!) Maybe we should pay more attention to the people who were ringing the warning bells 2 or more years ago. We need to get back to basics that made this country strong and prosperous. There are many other ways to get the economy going and encourage new business in the US without creating the fear factor and without excessive and wasteful spending....like ..maybe the Fair Tax!

    ReplyDelete
  39. "Lead by Example". Let's protest wasting tax payer dollars on presidential campaigns. Please remember that Obama did not take one dime of taxpayer $$$ and HAS NOT raised taxes! Don't allow righteous indignation with poor Republican policies to be hijacked by self-serving corporate organizers. Bailouts were 0% loans that will be repaid. Thankfully Obama added oversight to the process where the previous administration did not. Deregulation of the financial sector by Republican leadership started the crisis so I'm not surprised that one of the Tea Party's 12 principles is to repeal Sarbanes Oxley - key legislation passed to prevent Enron-like failures. Ask folks in Texas if they want to see legislation that criminalizes false corporate reporting weakened. Your passion for change has already been met - Obama 08.

  40. We are sick and tired of our elected officials taking our money and using it for unecessesary expenditures when we should be fortifying our borders, increasing our military strenght and size (especially the Navy.

    These folks in Washington have totally forgotten who they work for and who they represent.

    Its time for all Americans to send them a message that we want our country back, we want them to work hard and spend as little as possible to fullfill the government's role of protecting the people.

    My whole family will be at the Tea Party and let our voices be heard.

    Get off the couch....Get off your butt.....and stand up for your God Given Rights..

  41. An immigrant, (an American by choice) of 45+ years, I have slowly seen our freedoms dwindle through taxation & bigger government that is creating the very socialism, dictatorships I ran away from! I had to wait years before I was privileged to enjoy citizenship, now the left considers it a RIGHT. Retirees that have worked hard, paid their dues many times over are seeing their incomes dwindle due to more and more taxation; fiscal irresponsibility in Washington regardless of the party majority! Our Politicians lie and steal with soft gentle words, while enjoying the comfortable life, better health care than we common people have; better schooling for their children, huge expense accounts, luxury life styles, cheat on their taxes and and make millions while in office at our expense? So with friends we are coming to this Tea party because we want to be exercise the only right we have left, vote and demonstrate while we can.

  43. Everyone we have to connect at this and all the Tea Parties, I heard today the Dept. of Homeland Security has labeled us as domestic terrorists and a radical right wing hate group. Further check out the Cybersecurity Act in the works which would give the President the right to shut down the entire internet at will and with complete disregard to any laws if he deems it to be a threat to national security. We are getting into some scary stuff here!

  44. Ditto to the last comment,Seems like any person with common sense can tell most Politicians are not acting in the best interst of the county,but in there own best interest. Our polictical system is NOT designed to function in this way and WE the people should stop complaining about left or right and focus on a real change for the people,everybody knows politicians are some of the most greedy,but not always the smartest!America home of the FREE and the BRAVE

  45. I truly thinks it's funny that any arguement on this page has been-your party lost, get over it! It isn't about Democrat or Republican. Both parties grew government and raised taxes. We simply want it to stop and remind our Government that we are THE BOSS, not the other way around. Nothing more, nothing less. Non partisan, just back off and leave our money alone!

    ReplyDelete
  46. The Government spending has got to stop, all of it. We need to end these nanny-state laws that stop me from carrying my gun where I want, wearing my seatbelt when I want to, and just leave me alone to grow my own food. Our government representatives are not listening and were not paying attention long ago when this whole thing started. We don't need laws, we need guns. The warning bells have been ringing for years, but the liberty bell is cracked and has been patched with some Socialist glue sold to us by China. We put these representatives in office and my tax dollars pay their salary to serve and represent the will of the people....That's obviously not happening as we are here today. I mean the last time I called the cops to have them mow my lawn, they hung up on me.

    Its time for all Americans to send them a message that we want our country back, we want them to work hard and spend as little as possible to fullfill the government's role of protecting the people. We need to spend less on things like those expensive guns and save money by uying our military cheaper weapons like those made in China. It's their problem, they created it, and now we want them to fix it but not spend any money doing it.

    The end result of this is to prevent: My money being taken away to pay for abortions for people here and in other countries!
    My money being taken away for removing tattoo's of people in California. My money being taken away find a better way to grow a blueberry.
    My money being taken away find a better way to remove tattoos from blueberries.

    My money was taken away - to allow the AGI people to spend time in lavish resorts with the people from the SEC, the SCC, and the ACC!
    My money was taken away to SEE A PRESIDENT FIRE A CEO - and so HE and the GOVERNMENT could TAKE CONTROL! Soon your mandatory Chevy Malibu will arrive in your driveway and your Honda or Toyota will be towed away and dropped in the ocean (I read about that on Fox News).
    My money was taken away and given to BANKS - that WANT TO GIVE IT BACK - but Washington doesn't want it back........ because THEY WANT BIG
    GOVERNMENT AND CONTROL!!!! DANGEROUS to you so ignorant not to know that!!! Of course we're dangerous to America's enemies, especially Pirates, the Taliban, Bernie Madoff, the list goes on.
    WE ARE LOSING OUR FREEDOM RAPIDLY and so YES - there is much being taken away from me AND YOU- and seems your so unfamiliar with what IS GOING ON - and could care less. So start stockpiling ammo now, bro, cause your guns are next.

  47. Have you people heard? There was a national election some months ago and the self-serving lying Republican greed machine was DEFEATED. The majority of people (does that remind you of American tradition and law?) said we don't want you anymore -- you hurt too many people and we can't stand your gloating about your own selfishness. As for your claim of "rising taxes" -- could you substantiate that by a comparative analysis of tax rates for the past eight years in comparison to the actions of the (popularly elected) current political leadership we have?

  49. For all you "It's the Democrats' fault" VS. "It's the Republicans' fault" people, grow up, it doesn't matter who won and who lost. The point is our country is failing at an alarming rate and our "president" is all smiles and empty promises. Anyone ever watch any movies about slaves, see that for every 10 slaves there was one guy watching them and wonder why they didn't fight back for their freedom? This is the same basic principle. I'm no anarchist but, I believe that "The people should NOT FEAR THEIR GOVERNMENT! It is the government that should fear their people." Government instills us with fear (economic meltdown, system collapse, depleted oil reserves), so that they can make us believe that we NEED government to tell us how to run our lives. Sounds a little Marxist, don't you think? I don't know about you but, I want my grandchildren to be able to do something as simple as listen to Bob Marley without having to worry about the coming communist regime busting in to take them to prison. Draw a line in the sand and do not faulter. I know it doesn't seem like it but, the strength of our nation is still in our hands. The founding fathers came from a corrupt and broken government, they put into writting our "Unalienable Rights" to protect us, funny that we see everyday our Constitutional rights being fought against in our courts and both houses. They just can't wait to abolish the second ammendment so that we would be completely helpless to their will. Bring the parties back together, strengthen eachother, divided we fall. They've forgotten that this country belongs to us, it's time they were reminded.

  51. I fear some of you that are using this forum to vent or make obvious your political leaning have lost or never understood the basis for these tea parties.

    Tremendous errors in judgement, law making, and enforcement have been made by members of both parties. And for years now. Waste, greed, inefficiency... it all applies. Games, deals, and personal agendas are being played out right before our eyes. What's been going on is not how our government was set up to act or function.

    If we performed this way or intereacted with our co-workers this way in most of our jobs out here we'd be fired. No, this is about letting them know we hold them accountable for using "the people's" money wisely and protecting our freedoms and not creating dependancies. Especially not for generations yet to come.

    There is a lot to be done and the whole world is watching. D.C needs to stop all the BS, back stabbing, bribes, "deals", smoke and mirrors, rushed votes and clean up your acts or you will be fired the next oportunity we get.

    We have to let them know we're watching and that they are not fooling us. And that's what this tea party's message should get accross!

  53. Conservatism and libertarianism are in dire straits when their main leaders are media whores like Limbaugh, Hannity, Boortz et. al. who have to rely on the hysterics of exaggeration and fear mongering to gain support. They're a disgrace the theme of the Boston Tea Party. This protest doesn't come from a grass roots movement as advertized. It's been orchestrated from the top down by GOP operatives like Dick Armey and promoted by the (un)fair and (un)balanced FOX News Channel and its media sympathizers.

  56. This is as Grass Roots of a movement this country has in our generation for actual "TAX PAYERS" and those who believe in free market capitalism. Liberal hacks and ideologs cling to the idea that this is orchestrated by the GOP but they obviously misunderstand what is happening here. Most of us were already up in arms when Bush decided to spend 750 billion dollars on the first bailout package. From there the wheels just fell off and these jerks began throwing money at everyone the politicians were in bed with and are going to hand that bill over to our children knowing full well there is no possible way we can afford to pay for this you jerks. This movement is about government spending that is completely out of control and the government that is going to force taxation on our children without representation. There is tyranny before us again, but unlike 230 years ago this is a tyranny of incompetence. But what do I know, Who is John Galt?
    We are bringing 12 maybe more people from ages 1 ½ to 75, and it will be the first protest for all of us. This is a very special moment in our Nations history and I’m excited to be a part of it.

Obama supporters, keep on worshiping the Mesiah, while he/Pelosi/Ried/Frank etc. etc. keep spending this country into oblivion. This is NOT a partisan event. It is for those who have absolutely had enough of Washington, it's "for the American people" politicians and runaway debt & spending. RON PAUL 2012!!!

  61. For everyone complaining in this post about President Obama, you need to grow up. Where have you been for the last eight years??? That is the President you need to be complaining about. It is due to his economic and military policies that we are in the position we are in. Any president following his term would definitely have a lot of %&$* to clean up. At this point, no matter who the current president is/was everyone would still feel the same way as they do now concerning these tea parties...so get Obama's name out of your mouths.

  62. Since when are Rush, Sean, or any of the other country-loving, God-fearing, Constitution-reading radio mediums promoting fear? It seems that all we have heard for the last 90 days of the present administration are those containing fear (i.e. the economy will not turn around any time soon, there will be more job losses in the future as well as many more home foreclosures). How are all of those issues for squelching fear????
    These "tea parties" are the one tool where any one and everyone can make their voices heard. We need to let the people who rule us know that they are not going to take away our liberties, our voices, our choices for keeping our nation the God-loving, freedom-promoting country that it was founded on. We have heard enough from the liberals who are attached to this government controlling ruling class -- namely the media. It's time for grassroots America to speak for her country!!!

  63. I'm sick of sorting thru tons of ANANYMOUS posts that all lack thought and courage of your convictions. If you believe what you say sign your name to it. Otherwise how are you any different than the Islamic Terrorists who parade the sttreets with their faces covered. I'm an American, a Veteran and an Independent and proud of it. I'm going to be at the Tea Party because it is my right and I'm not ready to give up to the Left-wing Fascists that OBAMA keeps abdicating his responsibility as president too.

    You people here are so "misinformed"
    Our Great country has been betrayed by your leaders...and now we have to pay for it weather you like it or not...and things wont change, the top 1% will continue to control the %90+ of the rest....in other words this is all a vicious crime on us.
