July 4th Tea Parties

Lynchburg, VA Tea Party Patriots,
What an event we had this past April 15th. Looking back a month later we can see that the movement drew attention to just some of the many people have had enough. We are sending the petition from the Tea Party to the federal reps from our area, in hopes that they will further see the great concern from such a wide range of people.
The effect of the Tea Parties has slowed some of the reckless spending, but the spending commitments really need to be reversed, or taxes will continue to go up and your savings will be worthless in the face of skyrocketing inflation.
For a variety of reasons, including the fact that Ray and I are studying for the bar exam and moving to different parts of the nation, we will be unable to host a July 4th Tea Party in Lynchburg. We suggest one of two alternatives. We first suggest attending a 4th of July Tea Party in our Nations' Capital, Washington DC. Below is more info with the facebook group and website. We hope that you will all be able to attend. We feel that a enormous National Tea Party is the next step, with July 4th being a great day to call for “Freedom from our own Government”.
The second option is to attend a Tea Party in Roanoke, VA on July 4th. More information can be given by emailing Lee Carter at, or visit their website:
For our Nation,
Brendan McIntyre and Ray Coble

Thanks so much everyone...the Tea Party was a huge success....we are compiling contact info and will be creating a database for quick emails calling on us to bombard our elected officials in support or opposition of different legislative actions. We also have the petition to mail within a few days.

Post links to photos on this news story.

More info to follow!

WSET News Coverage

Here is some coverage on the Tea Party by WSET:
The story was on last night at 7pm and 11pm. It left out some details (Congressman Goodlatte), labels Ray as Brendan McIntyre, and cut out our 'pitches' a bit, but gets the idea across.

Lynchburg News & Advance Easter Newspaper

Here's another Op-Ed in the News and Advance from Easter Sunday's paper about the Lynchburg Tax Day Tea Party:

New Debt

This new debt will have to be paid off with higher taxes and/or printing money (leading to inflation) and/or MORE loans from China (and we all know that you can't pay off debt with more debt) --- if they'll give us more.

Native American Headdress for our Colonialist Tea 'Dump-ers'

Thanks so much to Dana Hale for volunteering to make the headdresses for our Tea Dump-ers!
We really appreciate it and the event will be that much better! To the Cause!

News from the City: Parking on the Day-of the Event

News from The City: As we will be in the Downtown area, parking will come at a premium. We are also not be able to park on 9th street near the base of the street. So, we wanted to let everyone know that although we won't be able to park at the DPO Grill lot, we will be able to park at Amazement Square's lot (they close at 5pm). Also, there is parking available in the Parking Ramp (for free after 5) at the corner of Commerce and 9th street.

One other notice from the City: No stakes nor poles for your signs, you must hold them.

Music at the Tea Party

Music will be played by LFA. He will be singing and playing his guitar live to (totally family friendly) classic rock to usher in people for the event.

Attempts to Sabotage the National Website!!!!

Please see the incredible story below: People want us to fail at getting the public's attention!

Rumor is that the FBI is working on this...

Issues with - Explanation

An international effort to shut down the website has been detected by our technical staff. Internet experts commonly call this type of attack a Denial of Service (DOS) attack. Corrective measures are being implemented, and the site should be fully accessible again within 48 hours.

Unfortunately, these DOS attacks are very difficult to trace. In this case, the attacks have come from both domestic and international sources. All we know for certain at this point is that a group of people want to stop this movement. We will not allow this to happen. This citizens’ movement will not be stopped.

We will be issuing an official press release on this issue on Monday, March 30th.

Lynchburg, VA Tax Day Tea Party (As part of the national

The Event

The Official National Tax Day Tea Party in Lynchburg, VA is taking place on April 15th at 6pm at the base of 9th street behind DPO Grill and Amazement Square.

Congressman Virgil Goode will be speaking, as well as Councilmen Scott Garrett and Jeff Helgeson. Local businesspeople will be sharing their stories of how the current tax system is sinking or has sunk their businesses. A singer is being confirmed for the event and media is planning on attending.

Considering that we have decided to give the floor at the rally to local business people who have been affected by the bailouts, stimulus, and increased taxes, and whether it has been a total drop in sales because of the Freddie and Fannie schemes, or the new "rich man" tax that destroys small businesses, we would like to have you tell your story. Please let us know if you, or someone you know, is interested in speaking.

Here's what you can do now!!!

~Join Facebook and send invites to friends:

~Make signs to pass out on the day of the event

~Spread the word however you can: this is just getting off the ground and hopefully we’ll have the speakers confirmed early next week to help with promo.

~Beware of many copycat groups on the web that we need to keep aware of ( Locally, there is another Tax Day Tea Party group that is trying to hold their event on the steps of Monument Terrace from 3pm-8pm. They have refused to join our event for silly reasons and we have no choice but to try to minimize their event for the health of the National cause. The national website is intent on hosting one event per medium sized city, however it seems as though these individuals are set on holding a totally separate event.

~Purchase a "Declaration of Liberty" flag for just $5, shipped! You can view the flag at This a not for profit venture. They are spending a lot of time and money to try to save our freedoms and return to the principles of the constitution.

It should be a great event and will really show people that Tax Day is the day we call for FREEDOM FOR GOVERNMENT with lowered taxes and limited government!
