Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 8, 2010
An unprecedented coalition of Metroplex conservative grassroots and tea party groups will join together to host the Lone Star Tea Party Tax Day Rally on April 15, 2010. To date, twenty-four area groups are actively participating in the event, which will be held at QuikTrip Park in Grand Prairie, Texas.
The Lone Star Tea Party is a non-partisan event connecting friends and neighbors who are fed up with the direction this country is headed, want to preserve the U.S. Constitution and limit the government to the powers granted therein. In addition to both local and nationally known speakers, the rally will feature the “Postcard from Texas,” a 50-foot-long banner on which participants may write a personal message to Washington. The “postcard” will be hand delivered to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
The emcee for the event will be Mark Davis of WBAP, the highest rated talk radio host in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Mark Davis will be joined by Mike Gallagher of KSKY and Jeff Bolton of KLIF.

"This is the first major organized event whereby a majority of local tea party and 912 groups have come together to be united in North Texas," said Mel Moss, President, Arlington Tea Party, Inc. "The mo-mentum of the tea parties continues to grow as people become more frustrated with elected politicians and special interest groups."
"We are excited Mark Davis is hosting our event, and we know the people of Texas will benefit from hearing his views on individual liberties, freedom and the Constitution," said Kaaren Teuber, a leader of the grassroots group Texoma Patriots. "The recent back room deals and arrogance in Washington that rammed the Health Care bill down the throats of the American people will result in layoffs, cutbacks in benefits, and rationed healthcare. We must unite together, speak with a single voice, and change the direction of this country."
"Our elected officials can't continue to ignore the wishes of the people and expect us to forget come election day," said Ken Emanuelson, a member of the Steering Committee for Dallas Tea Party "This rally is a golden opportunity for our movement to build our collective membership base and come together to make our voices heard."
The event is presented by the following conservative groups in North Texas: Allen Area Patriots, Ar-lington Tea Party, The Boiling Point Keller, Carrollton Tea Party, Central Texas 912, Dallas Tea Party, Ellis County Conservatives, Farmers Brand Tea Party, Flowermound Tea Party, Frisco Tea Party, Garland Tea Party, Irving Tea Party, Mansfield 912, McKinney Tea Party, NE Tarrant Tea Party, North Central Texas Tea Party, North Texas Tea Party, Plano Tea Party, Richardson Tea Party, Texoma Patriots, We the People of Ellis County, and Weatherford Tea Party.
The Event’s main show will begin at 7 p.m. at QuikTrip Park in Grand Prairie. Gates will open at 4:30pm with entertainment, pre-show activities for kids, and concessions at the ballpark. We encourage everyone to bring signs for the event with words showing their frustrations with the policies and direction this country is headed. The main show will have speakers, entertainment, and food, and the whole family is wel-come. The event is free, but there are VIP passes and corporate sponsorships available to help offset the production of the event.
