Conservatives to gather in Madison for Tax Day Rally, April 14, 2012

Conservatives, Special events, TAXES, Government / Bureaucracy, WISCONSIN

Americans for Prosperity is once again sponsoring a Tax Day rally at our state capitol in Madison on Saturday, April 14, 2012, from 11:30am to 1pm--so even working folks can participate. Their invitation reads,

Join us! Be there as thousands of patriots descend on the capitol in Madison to fight for smaller government, lower taxes and increased economic freedom!

I attended one of these Tea Party rallies in 2010 and it was a great experience--it was there, many in Wisconsin were first introduced to Ron Johnson!

This year, Americans for Prosperity is again providing bus service but you must register under their Ticket Information section to reserve your spot. Unfortunately, the bus service is sold out from Milwaukee and Waukesha locations, but if you were set on taking the bus, you could drive to the Fond du Lac pick up location behind Rocky Rococo at 806 W. Johnson Street, and go from there. (Be sure to register first.)

If you wish to drive to Madison, AFP has also arranged parking at the Alliant Energy Center for $6 that includes a free shuttle from 10am to 3pm. (I am not sure which lot, but I think you will see the crowds. Contact AFP for more info: Phone: 414-604-6613  Email: You must register for this option as well. It is the last choice listed on the Ticket Information section under General Admission.


The Confirmed Speakers Include:
Fox News Contributor - James T. Harris
Conservative Talk Show Host - Vicki McKenna
Big - Dana Loesch
Gateway Pundit - Jim Hoft
PJTV - Stephen Kruiser
Nashville Recording Artist - Krista Branch
AFP WI State Director - Luke Hilgemann

They have invited other conservatives (we can always hope), but regardless of who else shows up, I think you will enjoy the experience.
