You dont remember that pre-revolutionary history? I should say you shouldnt, because it didnt happen. But flash forward a few hundred years and youll find it is happening today in Cape Coral, Florida where city officials canceled a tax day tea party gathering because they feel too many people could show-up.
Thats right, folks, the God-given, long-held American right to assemble and protest the actions of our government has been canceled due to too much popularity of the protest.

Send in the lawyers!
Isn’t Crist the governor of Florida?
So show up anyway. Bring cameras.
Call the sheriff’s dept.....I hear they have some good people there.
They can cancel all they want. Show up anyway. If they throw people in jail, sue them. Take it all the way to the Supremes if you have to.
Try and stop a gay gathering, a black gathering. What he is doing goes directly against the Constitution. Hope they jump on this now.
Have it anyway. It is your right! Stand up!
Or maybe just let it and hide your tail between your legs
In title I think that ‘Gov’ was short for Government not Governor.
UH.....SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO???? We’re gonna let the GOVERNMENT shut down a protest????? Not if we’re REAL Conservatives....
I thought the headline meant the Governor canceled the tea party until I read the article. It was the “city” of Cape Coral that required the organizer to obtain a permit and insurance which she (the organizer) balked at. Anyway, it’s all in the article but the headline should be fixed because it could be (was for me) misleading.
Well planned spontaneity should work! What if a spontaneous rally broke out and everybody came?
So what. Show up anyway.
A few thousand patriots need to randomly arrive there at the originally scheduled date & time.
Got an idea here. Get all the black conservatives down there and have them show up at the Governors office and claim discrimination. Go ahead and play their game.
exactly, a few yrs back the support the illegal aliens movement took to the streets by the thousands, and not a peep out any one.. in fact my congress person marched and supported them...
Bring a rainbow flag and claim the government is suppressing your rights.
Tell me when and where,and I’ll drive from Tampa to be there. Piece by piece they are taking our freedoms. I’ll not stand for it anymore. VIA REVOLUTION!
Show up anyway and bring your video camera!
Get some Log Cabin Republicans to bring a rainbow flag to the tea party. That covers both bases.
