On tax day April 15th: Me, Jimbo, Paul, Lacey, and Ashley all went to Boise, Idaho to participate in the Tea Party Protest. The main idea of the protest was against Governments lack of skills when it comes to spending...example: the tax rebates. Although other issues were mentioned as well like gun control, religion, and that kind of stuff.
It was a five hour drive to Boise in rain/snow, but we made it their alive no problem. We joined the protest at a park somewhere in Boise. Then marched to the capital with our home-made protest signs. :)
The day was filled with a lot of speakers, and alot of yelling on our part! Which was really fun. At one point it was announced that there was an estimated 3,000 people in attendance at the park. There was a lot of police everywhere and we even got a nifty police escort as we marched to the capital. I even got flipped off on our way back to the park as we were walking to our car, which was hilarious needless to say.
