for an hour of speeches and a performance by a rap artist
advocating a "campaign against the current culture destroying the
fabric of freedom."

government uses power "to steal from those who have earned things
to give to those who haven't."
Iowa Democratic Party Chairwoman Sue Dvorsky issued a statement
noting the small crowd, saying "today's turnout is a clear signal
there is very little gas left in the tank of the Tea Party
The group also planned a Sioux City event Monday, then Tuesday
in Lincoln and Omaha, Nebraska.
