Hudson resident Scott Nehring spoke before thousands gathered at the capitol building in St. Paul April 15 for the Tax Day TEA Party.
“I just contacted them,” Nehring said. “I wrote up a speech and e-mailed it to them. I said, ‘I’m just a common citizen like the people in the audience. I’m coming because the situation we find ourselves in has troubled me greatly.’”
TEA stands for Taxed Enough Already, and Nehring agrees.
“When Bush did the bail-outs, that was the last straw for me. When Obama came on, they took what Bush did and put it on steroids. This event gave me the opportunity to actually do something.” He said. “Just because someone’s a liberal or a conservative doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have a place at the table. Democracy is rooted in civil argument, which can be a beautiful thing.”
Attendance estimates for the non-partisan event in St. Paul range from 7,500 to 10,000.
Text of Nehring’s speech is available on his Web site, www.GoodNewsFilmReviews.com, which appropriately states, “offering a viewpoint not often represented.”
