Taxes and Tea


About 200 southwestern North Dakotans showed up to walk the sidewalks of Museum Drive Wednesday as part of the nationwide Tax Day Tea Party protests.

The event was organized as a way to protest what some would call wasteful spending by the federal government.

Those who organized and spoke at the event said it goes deeper than government spending, it is about getting back to the fundamentals of the country's founding, things like the constitution.
