Corner of Allegan and Capitol (Capitol Lawn), Lansing, MI
The Coalition Against Higher Taxes is hosting an afternoon event at the State Capitol in preparation for the May 5th ballot proposal vote. This is not a party issue, this is a taxpayer issue!
What will be addressed:
FACTS - What other laws will be triggered if this passes, not all of your tax dollars are going to fix the roads, what is this going to cost the average family?
FICTION - It's not this or nothing. There are other plans out there. Some have been introduced and others are in the making.
FOCUS - What we can do to get information out before May 5th. The importance of getting informed voters to the polls!
Training, Capitol step rally, informational items, networking with more details to follow.
Save the date, mark your calendars, see you there!

On top of spending $50 million for a better view of the Capitol for the Senate, we need to spend ANOTHER $88 million for underground parking for our legislators and a welcome center. Along with asking for $2 BILLION in May AND being $450 million dollars short for this years budget.
NEW ELECTION TOOL for Liberty, Patriot, and Conservatives!!
Great to see these signs in SW Michigan!

Michigan Tea Party Alliance Web site Guiding Principle
We are tea parties from throughout the state of Michigan who believe we were given an awesome gift of a republic based on a set of inspired documents called the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. In these document are three basic principles we espouse. They are:
· Limited government
· Fiscal responsibility
· Free markets
These values derive from our shared heritage and a belief in a free person who exercises personal responsibility.
A) Limited Government
1) Strengthen state sovereignty
2) Make local and state governments stronger and more independent from national government
3) Stop legislation which hinders personal liability: property rights, moral legislation, free speech, etc. and most legislation which removes personal choice from citizens who have unalienable rights
4) Reform tax code (with focus on lowering tax burden for all citizens)
B) Fiscal Responsibility
1) Reduce the size of all government departments and bureaucracies at every level
2) Reduce and limit grants and foreign aid
3) Common sense approach to balancing the budget, no new debt and eventually paying off the debt
C) Free Markets
1) Limit regulation of any sector of business or industry
2) Reform subsidies and taxation
3) Eliminate government ownership in any private company or industry
