The Tea Party Express, a national political bus tour promoting smaller government and deriding the Obama Administration, rolled into Portland today.  They held a rally for lower taxes and against socialism at East Burnside and Twelfth Avenue, echoing hundreds of other rallys they have held across the country.  The Tea party Movement claims grassroots support but seems to have the backing of powerful conservative think tanks and has been endorsed by the Republican Party.  It has been heavily promoted by conservative media outlets like FOX news.  Alternative media outlets have noted that the Tea Party Rallies are part of a uptick in vehement conservative sentiment following the election of President Obama last year.  KBOO’s Maggie Starr visited the Rally to see what was on the party goers’ minds.
