Marion County residents converged on the downtown square from all directions Wednesday. Their signs were as different as their demographics: senior citizens stood next to young adults, housewives and businessmen on lunch break.
But the message spoken, and occasionally yelled, at the United States government during the Ocala Tea Party was the same: stop tax increases and outrageous spending.
“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess
the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its
experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.” – Samuel Adams
