On April 15, the day our hard-earned money has to be sent to the IRS so Barack Obama and a Democratic Congress can spend it on more corporate bail-outs, mortgage relief for people who bought homes they couldn’t afford, socialized medicine, tax-payer funded abortions and a host of other worthy causes, concerned citizens in Santa Fe will be having a Tea Party.
Not the kind where you sip tea and eat watercress sandwiches and make polite small talk. The kind conservatives around the country have been having for the past couple of months. If you live in or around Santa Fe (or elsewhere in New Mexico but would like to make the trip and join us) and feel the way I do about the government spending hemorrhage, please join us at the Santa Fe Plaza from 5:00 to 6:30.
Children are very welcome — there will be face painting and other activities for them, with a Mad Hatter Tea Party theme. Kids and adults are welcome to dress up as Alice, the Mad Hatter, Queen of Hearts or other favorite characters. I’ll be there with my kids, and the more the merrier.
There will also be live music and speakers including Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson and others to be announced shortly. I’ll update when I have more information, and you can also check he Santa Fe Tea Party’s own blog.
If you’re a reader of my blog and would like to say hello in person, this is a good time to do it. My picture runs with my New Mexico Independent columns, so you’ll be able to recognize me — except that my hair probably won’t look as nice as it does in the picture and I’ll have four kids climbing all over me saying, “Mom, mom, mom,” pretty much constantly. The three who can talk anyway. The other one will be trying to pull my earrings out if I’m foolish enough to wear them.
Come one, come all. I hope to see you there.
