Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) - Voters came together not to protest, but to listen and voice their opinion about taxation, spending and less government. At a Tea Party in Grand Forks, many said they are worried about how cities, states, and the nation are being run.

Organizers say this is not to protest but to talk about issues with our government and say more people need to start running for offices and writing letters to their local governments. Organizers say the goal is to get people to step-up and become involved in politics.

A controversial pastor investigated by the I-R-S for preaching politics at his church in Warroad spoke to those tea partiers.

Gus Booth talked to the the crowd about how politics from the pulpit should not be against the tax law. He says the I-R-S has broken the law itself.

The agency threatened to take away his church's tax exemption if he continued to preach about politics. Booth plans to keep preaching about politics from the pulpit whenever he can this election year.
