Tea party hosts tax day freedom rally on courthouse lawn in Craig

Steamboat Springs resident Lisa Watts recited a poem Friday she said captured the spirit of why she and many others were standing on the lawn of the Moffat County Courthouse. “They tax our land, they tax our bed, tax the table at which we are fed,” she said, clad in an American flag shirt. “They tax our work, they tax our pay, we work for peanuts, anyway.” Watts was speaking at the 2011 Tax Day Freedom Rally hosted by the Bears Ears Tea Party Patriots at the courthouse. The event featured speakers, music and prizes including a wide array of messages centered on the Federal government and taxation.
