On September 12, 2009 American conservative of all persuasions showed that they had awaken .
Millions of Americans all over the country protested the out of control spending, economic-ruining, socialistic and unconstitutional tendancies of the current politicians in Washington DC, and particularly the Obama administration. Estimates ranged from 2 million by the Daily Mail in the UK, to near one million by Homeland Security, to several hundred thousand by NBC. Watching it on TV, I believe there were a million or more in Washington DC. See the pictures below and decide for yourself:
And the Official Obama administration response? You guessed it...
American citizens are intent on restoring the Constitution. .
Conservatives consistantly poll as a large majority of the polical makeup of America...conservative Republicans, conservative independents, and conservative democrats too. When Jimmy Carter ran down America during his presidency between 1976 and 1980, Americans reacted against him and he was defeated in a landslide. The Obama administration policies are worse for America than Jimmy Carter's were, moving more rapidly and with far more abandon than even Carter tried, or Bill Clinton for that matter. The results are going to be the same.
Americans want to restore the Constitutional Republic, based on the US Constitution and its foundational moral and republican principles. They are not asking for this...they are demanding it.
And they will have satisfaction.
Starting in 2010 with the largest overturn in the history of the House and Senate in a single election, and proceeding through 2012, the American people showed on 9/12/2009 that they are willing and more than capable of taking these measures into their onw hands.
Current liberal, socialistic, marxistic, and RINO politicians ignore this at their own mortal political peril...and justifiably so.
Neuter them in 2010...send them packing in 2012!
AMERICA AT THE CROSSROADS OF HISTORY
My guess is that, all in all, in excess of three million Americans protested yesterday. God bless every one so involved, and all those who supported them.
FYI. Pictorial representation of yesterday’s activities in Washington, DC.
why weren’t people allowed on the actual Mall between the Capitol and Washington Momument?
And those of us who wanted to go but couldn’t.
Great photos. I love conservatives.
Thanks for the thread.
Wasn’t aware that they were not allowed. From the photos I saw it appeared that they were on the mall.
I am truly sorry I didn’t attend. I won’t miss the next one. Thanks to those who were there.
THIS is ONLY the beginning....
(I am not sure if I can blow it up and post it here)
They had tents set up for National Black Family Reunion. I would love to know when this was planned — before or after the tea party express.

Your link isn’t working at the moment.

Live together or die alone.....that's where we are headed....

Working for me here in Idaho.
I urge everyone to join their local 912 or Tea Party group. Also check out goooh.com. We are organizing as patriots to take back our country. It's going to take a lot of work but we have at least begun.

Rights exists solely as a way to fairly decide whose will shall prevail in cases where two or more people disagree. They do not exist for the purpose of enslaving one person for the benefit of another (e.g., the "right" to free medical care.)
Liberty is the right to do whatever does not infringe the rights of others. Rights empower you to help yourself, free from interference by others.
Tyranny makes you a serf to be used by the elite to further their own power. Once upon a time, the nobility used religion to convince the serfs they had to serve the nobility. Modernly, the elite use good people's feelings of altruism to convince them to enslave both themselves and their neighbors. It's basically the same con game, just using a more sophisticated hook.
Still not working here in Omaha, NE.
