There will be a chance to sound off on July 3 on the north lawn of the Bee County Courthouse when local people hold the second Tea Party.
“A group of concerned citizens are having a tea party July 3, at 6 p.m. on the courthouse lawn,” said one of the event organizers.
“We are concerned about the unprecedented expansion of government power and the out-of-control spending that will enslave future generations,” Bettye Seviere said in an e-mail this week.
“This country is moving rapidly on the path to socialism. We are concerned about the move to socialized medicine; national security; the bailouts of banks, insurance companies, the auto industry and the talk of guaranteeing the debt of states.”
This will be the second opportunity this year for citizens to express the concerns about the current trends of the federal government. The first Tea Party hosted in Beeville was on April 15, federal income tax deadline day, at the same location.
“Our country needs to return to the principles of our founding fathers and stop the government’s unconstitutional power grab,” Seviere said.
“Come join our non-partisan tea party. Bring your sign and share your thoughts on these issues.”
