Tea Parties Across California On April 15

The San Francisco Chronicle wrote that 5000 attended the Tea Party "taxed enough already" protest in Sacramento (above), and 500 in San Francisco (video here, hat tip to Starchild). The LA Times headline said "Republicans Stage 'Tea Party' Protests", but when the crowd in Sacramento was asked "Are you guys tools of the Republican Party?", they shouted "Noooooooo!" Recent Libertarian convert Art Pedroza writes at the Orange Juice Blog that the California GOP's leaders are afraid of the tea parties, and voted to oppose all of the budget-related ballot measures advocated by Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
