Some of you may have heard about the Tea Party Express cross-country tour,Â a 33-city tour ending in Washington, DC on September 12th.Â News outlets covering the tourÂ include FOX News, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, The New York Times and Parcbench.
â€œParcbench is one of six national media outlets embedded with the cross-country government protest tour, Tea Party Express. Weâ€™ll be providing you with video and blogging updates throughout each day with interviews, coverage of each city and more.
The Tea Party Express is a bus caravan crossing the country in 16 days from Aug. 28th to Sept. 12th via 33 cities with a whole lot of youth, passion, protesting against the government and a heck of a good time.
The purpose? To protest against the governmentâ€™s takeover of select industries, its bankrupt spending sprees and overall disregard for individual rights.
The Tea Party Express starts in Sacramento and ends in DC for the 9/12 March On Washington to tell the government to get out of our lives and stop spending our money. Parcbench founder Kellen Giuda will be one of many speakers at the March On Washington and weâ€™ll be bringing you full coverage of that as well.
This is an exciting and important time in our countryâ€™s history and we want you to get involved! We want your writings, your pictures, your video and most of all, your voice!â€
The tour was recently covered by Fox Newsâ€™ Greta Van Susteren and Griff Jenkins:
Parchbenchâ€™s very own Amy Schroeder was on Fox and Friends recently to discuss the tour.Â This video as well as other coverage is available here.
But I’mÂ sure that even they are secretly impressed with theÂ number of people who continue to show up to these events –Â though of courseÂ they would never admit it! This is bigger than group affiliations; people are fed up and speaking out.Â Itâ€™s the American way!
