SB backs Hawaii Tea-Parties: "Protest their insane plans to increase our already high cost of living"
By Andrew Walden @ 7:51 AM :: 11286 Views :: Hawaii County , Honolulu County, DHHL, Maui County, Energy, Environment


Hilo, Kona, Honolulu, Kahului, Lahaina, Lihue SEVEN EVENTS SCHEDULED!

Priorities at events:

1) Voter registration

2) Collect contact info of rally participants so they can be contacted regarding tax bills before Legislature

3) Sign up new Republican Party members


From today's Star-Bulletin Editorial page:

You say you want a revolution?


A reminder, gentle reader:

Tomorrow night is the filing deadline for federal taxes. (The state tax deadline is April 20.)

For those who feel they're paying too much and have a yen to vent, there's an event tomorrow just for you (assuming that you're not one of those last-minute procrastinators and have the time to attend). The "Tax Day Tea Party" will be held 4-7 p.m. at the state Capitol.

Here's the call to action from the organizer's Web site,

"Many of our elected state legislators in Hawaii are planning to enact massive tax increases in the weeks ahead when the legislative session ends on May 7th. YOU CAN HELP STOP THEM.

"Please attend Hawaii's people's rally so we can protest their insane plans to increase our already high cost of living."

UPDATE: Seven "Tax Day Tea Party" events are scheduled for Hawaii April 15  Here are contact information and details for all of the seven events.  The best thing Hawaii Republicans can do is register every single person to vote, get them to sign Party cards and recruit them to become GOP precinct chairs.
