Tea party urges ?peaceful revolution' - Orange County Register
About 40 people assembled at Historic Town Center Park in San Juan Capistrano on Saturday afternoon to hear speakers and a musician during a "Tax Day tea party" rally organized by the California Grassroots Alliance.
Traven Tucker of Dallas played guitar and harmonica and sang patriotic songs before Mark Weber, director of the Fountain Valley-based Institute for Historical Review, paraphrased Roman philosopher and statesman Cicero, stating, "(Americans) should seek what is good for the people in the long run."
Statements on the California Grassroots Alliance website say it aims to "rally Americans to cut off funding for career politicians whose mismanagement has placed California and America on the brink of catastrophe" and to "see America once again governed by our nation's founding principles."
William Johnson, chairman of the group American Third Position, also spoke at the rally, stating, "We can achieve a peaceful revolution working together."
