While several rallies broke out in Oregon on national tax day, the largest in Salem drew about 1,000 demonstrators.

The Salem rally was focused on taxes but attracted other protestors as well who criticized every level of government for a wide variety of reasons.

The speakers emphasized familiar themes of faith and family along with hot buttons about climate change science and the new health insurance policies adopted by Congress.

"This is about taxes, but that's just part of it," said Russ Walker, director of FreedomWorks Oregon, which organized the event. "The agenda of less freedom is what this is all about."

Taxes are am important part of helping us do business and we must hold those accountable for spending just as we do in our businesses.
We would go bankrupt if we ran our business the same as those who work on our behalf.
Lean business practices create JOBS. We need JOBS not more TAXES.
