City Votes To Not Let TEA Party Organizer Speak

Quincy, IL -- Along a party line vote, the Quincy City Council denied a written request to speak by a taxpaying resident of the city.Steve McQueen, one of the organizers of the Quincy Tea Party effort, requested to speak on the recently approved budget and water and sewer rate increases.When it came time to vote to open the floor to allow speakers, a mixed voice vote took place. A roll call vote ensued and the seven Democrats denied McQueen's opportunity to speak while six Republicans voted to allow him to speak.COMMENTARY: By taking this action, the seven Democrats violated 18 USC 242 "Deprivation of rights under color of law." They also directly violated Amendment 1 of the Constitution for thee United States of America which stipulates:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishmentof religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;or abridging the freedom of speech or the press; or theright of the people peaceably to assemble and topetition the Government for a redress of grievances. (Emphasis mine)COMMENTARY: This is tyranny, plain and simple. It is situations like this that the Second Amendment is designed to deal with.Full details Here 18 USC 242 HereThose wishing to contact the Quincy, IL City Council can find the names, home addresses, telephone numbers, photographs and even some e-mail addresses for each City Council member on the official City web site HERE
