Michael Reagan Rallies Missouri Tea Party
Jefferson City, Mo. – About 400 people gathered outside the Missouri State Capitol Tuesday for a tea party rally, featuring the son of former president Ronald Reagan.
Talk show host Michael Reagan told the crowd on the State Capitol's South Lawn that liberals and progressives are "like termites."
"If we don't temp them on a regular basis, they're going to keep eating away."
But Reagan also said that conservatives need to emulate liberals in their long-term outlook.
"Liberals and progressives are led by their ideology it seems we're always looking for that leader. Let that be your ideology lead. Let that be the leader."
Several more tea party rallies are planned across Missouri and around the country on Thursday, which is also the deadline for filing income tax returns.
