Hanoverton, Ohio's 'Boston Tea Party' - 7/3/09


Plymouth Street in Hanoverton, Ohio was the location of a TEA Party on Independence Day Eve. Enough people to almost match the population of Hanoverton filled an area to here various speakers including Dave Zanotti who served as the moderator and announced an after the Tea Party Project that included a nationwide effort to fire the entire Congress! Ohio House of Representative Minority Leader Bill Batchelder said, ". . . As a student of history, that this nation is at the DARKEST period of time in its history. I include the Civil War."

Batchelder went on to say, "We have a tendency in Washington today, which is becoming a trend, which is becoming, indeed, a sweeping trend across the country to CENTRALIZE all government in the city of Washington. To take away the RIGHTS and privileges of the people of this great country. In fact, at the end of the day, to take over our economy . . ."

Batchelder concluded his remarks urging the 500-1,000 assembled, to stand tall and to stand strong and to see to it that the current crisis "does not become the center of a dictatorship."


The next two speakers, Robert E. Murray and Bob Frederick are or soon will be victims of the economic coup that is currently taking place in Washington, to which Representative Batchelder was referencing. Murray owns a coal mine that produces 60^% of the coal used by electrical utilities serving Ohioans. Cap and Tax legislation, if passed by the U.S. Senate and signed by the President, would eventually kill his company and would dramatically increase the cost of energy radically.

Frederick has had his car dealership taken from him without any compensation. The bankruptcy court reduced his franchise to $0. There was a lot of political shenanigans that went into the way the reduction of dealerships was dealt with. Again the heavy hand of the Soetoro aka Obama administration was evidenced in that decision.


The climax of this TEA Party event was the announcement of a project, by American Policy Roundtable CEO Dave Zanotti, to issue pink slips to the entire Congress. He indicated that this would be one key action step to be taken that comes out of the Tea Party Movement. The concerted and united effort to rid the country and the Congress of those individuals who contributed to the growing economic disaster, those who voted or will vote for the
  • TARP

  • Pork-Filled Economic Stimulus
  • Bank Bailouts

  • Insurance Company Bailouts

  • Nationalizing the Auto Industry
  • Cap and Trade

  • Universal Healthcare

  • Debt Ridden Budget

We need to hold all of our 'Representatives' accountable for this mess that they got us in and into which they are digging us deeper. Zanotti revealed a step-by-step process that will issue each member notice that their job is terminated. They will be issued a pink slip. They will be even provided information as to moving companies they could use in packing up their household goods to return back to Ohio. This is a quite comprehensive effort to bring to the attention of the electors that the electorate is upset and has had enough.

More to come.

  2. Blue -

    You had some excellent pictures as well. Tea Party Movement must lead to the firing of all of Congress . . . The destruction of our country must stop . . .

  3. I am just as mad as the rest of Americans.
    Our socialist government is spending money like there was no end
    It’s time to bring and end to the word “public”
    An end to public health care
    An end to public education
    An end to public parks
    An end to public roads
    An end to public libraries
    An end to public police
    An end to public firefighters
    An end to public military
    An end to public politicians

    It’s time to get rid of every socialistic institution in this country and hand it back to the private sector.

    The private sector and market principles can do a better cheaper job than any government entity.

    Show your support. Pull your children out of public schools. Avoid public libraries. Refuse to play in a public park. Don’t ride on public roads. Don’t call a public police if your house is robbed. Or a public firefighter if your house is on fire.

    Stand up for your beliefs!!!
