USA, a machine shop located in Oxford that specializes in Swiss screw machine products.
He is also the volunteer organizer of the Worcester Tea Party.
The national Tea Party Movement began in February with spontaneous Tea Party rallies across the United States. Since then, thousands of volunteers have been planning what organizers state
“may be the largest single day, multi-city protest in the history of the United States.
Modeled after the Boston Tea Party Rebellion of 1773, the Worcester Tea Party is a response to what it calls the usurping and subversion of personal freedoms and free-market capitalism by the federal government.
Tea Party participants support:
The return to our founding Constitutional principles of personal responsibility, integrity, honesty,liberty and economic freedom.
The re-assertion of our sovereignty as free men and women.
The re-establishment of local control through the strengthening of the rights of individual states.
The holding accountable of our government through citizen activism and to accomplish these objectives through educating, recruiting, organizing and mobilizing the citizens of the Commonwealth.
