A Unique 4th Of July Celebration, A Tea Party Protest

The Independence Day weekend has officially begun. Shortly after the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776, Easton was one of three locations where the it was publicly read. On Friday Night, the eve of our nation’s 233rd birthday, concerned citizens again gathered in Easton, to talk about what they say is an erosion of their rights. WFMZ’s Bo Koltnow was there and has more.

>>REPORTER: Many came to Easton’s Center Square armed. Weapons of choice? Signs protesting the government. 

>>SANDY: We’re here to protest higher taxes, government intrusion and to say no the cap and trade. 

>>REPORTER: Similar to the one’s held on Tax day. The tea party was a chance for concerned citizens to tell Washington they’ve had enough. Bruce and Judy Jones made the pilgrimage from Quakertown. 

>>BRUCE: We’re kind of tired of government and spending. 

>> When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for people to dissolve political bands which have connected them to another. 

>>REPORTER: Similar to an Easton July night back in 1776, the Declaration of Independence was publicly read. 

>>SANDY: We want our legislators to listen to us and know that they’re working for us we are not working for them. 

>>REPORTER: Speakers spoke on why they feel limited government is the only form of government America needs. 

>>REPORTER: Those here say this is not about being Democrat or Republican but it’s about people who fed up with government. 

>>PAUL: We have a congress who is completely out of control. Guess who’s fault is that? Ours. 

>>REPORTER: Throughout the event a cacophony of complaints could be heard. Definitive answers..not so much. But this is America a land where for over 230 years life, liberty and the “pursuit” of happiness has reigned supreme.
