Soft Tyranny Is Topic At Chattanooga Tea Party Thursday

Monday, June 17, 2013

Soft Tyranny will be the topic at the Thursday Chattanooga Tea Party meeting.

“As the scandals continue to grow not only in number but also in scope in Washington, the common thread to all of all them, including the IRS and NSA, is our federal government’s trampling of Americans’ unalienable rights” said Mark West, president of the Chattanooga Tea Party.  Specific examples of intrusions and violations by the federal government will be reviewed along with various responses and solutions will be discussed.

The meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. at the Century Club Banquet Hall, 3221 Harrison Pike (off Access Road, just south of the Highway 153-Amnicola Highway intersection, next to The Lighting Gallery).                 

As a reminder, bring a non-perishable canned good item as the Chattanooga Tea Party is committed to supporting the local Chattanooga Area Food Bank.
