CHATTANOOGA, TN, (WDEF)-Not everyone will be screaming "yes we can" when president Obama arrives in the Volunteer State.

Chuck Fleischmann,"His economic policies have failed from the inception, Obama-care is a disaster, I hope the president takes notes when he comes, In Tennessee we do it right, we are a right to work state, we balance our budget every year"

Chuck's views are echoed by local Tea Party member Mark West.

"In 2008 he called president Bush then unpatriotic because he had raised the national debt by 4 trillion dollars, today President Obama has raised the debt by nearly 8 trillion, what does that mean about this current president, is he doubly unpatriotic or maybe something worse?

Tea Party activists will be joined by the Campaign For liberty in protesting at Tuesdays Event.

Matt Collins,"President Obama is pushing this internet sales tax when it was actually authored by Senator Lamar Alexander and Governor Haslam has been pushing it too."

Young Chattanooga Democrat Matt Plott says everyone has the right to protest and speak out.

"But it is a great part of our American Democracy that you are able to protest if you disagree with what the President is doing, I feel he's doing a great job but everyone's entitled to their opinion."

Tuesdays protests will begin in the morning with activists arriving from across the south as well as right here in the Tennessee Valley.

The words "republic" and "democracy" are used to describe governments, not countries. Neither describe the government of United States which is fascism. The people of this country have been fools about government and tyranny. Shun Obama; shun the established government; never vote for a Democrat or a Republican again.

The United States of America is a republic, not a democracy. Nowhere in the constitution does the word "democracy" appear. When you refer to our great country as a democracy, you insult our constitution.
