Unpatriotic Americans, i.e. anyone who doesn't agree with the thoughts and/or platform of the Tea Party movement, obviously aren't welcome.
I assume the coalition chose Gatlinburg for its proximity to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, created under that other socialist Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his various government work programs. Gatlinburg is clearly dependent on government largess, a welfare baby, if you will, and I can't wait to hear Tea Partiers rip it apart.

The Tennessee Tea Party Coalition was formed on 23 January 2010. Delegates representing 34 Tea Party groups from throughout Tennessee, with a combined membership of over 18,000 Tea Party members, came together and formed our Coalition at a Caucus and ratified our Founding Documents. We believe in and support our Nation's Founding Principles of individual freedom, limited government, free enterprise, the free market economy, and state and national sovereignty.
Tennessee is the first state in the Republic to form a state-wide Tea Party Coalition, and we are very excited to hold our Inaugural Tea Party Convention! Tickets for purchase and detailed information on the convention are available via our website: www.TennesseeTeaPartyCoalition.com.We hope you will join us at the Inaugural state-wide Tennessee Tea Party Coalition Convention!
