ATTN. D.C. BOUND TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Surround Obama at Cannon HOB at 3 p.m. EDT Today
Saturday, March 20, 2010 | Kristinn

Posted on 03/20/2010 5:42:24 AM PDT by kristinn

According to news reports, Barack Obama is scheduled to go to Capitol Hill this afternoon to lobby the House Democrat caucus to support his takeover of the American healthcare system.

Latest reports show that there are still three dozen or more undecided Democrats.

With Obama traveling to Capitol Hill while thousands of Tea Party Patriots are expected to be there at the same time, the Patriots will have a great chance to bring their message directly to Obama and the Democrats by surrounding them (as best as possible) at the Cannon House Office Building.

From the AFP:

Obama was due to meet Democratic lawmakers in the ornate Cannon House caucus room at 3:00 pm (1900 GMT) Saturday, along with Senate Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Patriots should plan to start 'surrounding' the Cannon Building at 2 p.m. The Capitol Police will establish a security perimeter, but there's no reason Patriots should not not be seen and heard by Obama and the Democrats.

Please forward this report to Twitter and other sites where those traveling to D.C. today will see it.

Go get ‘em! I suspect they will cordon off the area so no one is close to the building. I hope I’m wrong.

Prayer (for you and all) while this is occuring.

We have your spiritual and physical "backs" whilst you strike a blow for freedom.

Furthermore, working the undecideds myself from Japan via internet and fax, as much as is humanly possible. Full court press. Crunch time.

Please note that the Secret Service will not allow people too near the
cannon office building. You can be on the grass at the Capitol
but not too near the building.

Obama visited cannon Nov. 7 afternoon before the House vote.
and i was there yelling.

BE SAFE.
see you in DC

Hey Kristinn - my husband and daughter headed up to DC yesterday, but aren’t sure where rallies are. They’re in Pentagon City right now and think there’s a rally at 10 somewhere. If you, or anyone knows more specifics, I’d love to pass them along. Thanks!

There may be other gathering places/times but that’s the only one I could find at the moment.

For all the talk of courage and [possible] civil disobedience over Obamacare in the final hours, and really going to the well by walking the walk, as a Freeper I publically call upon, I challenge all Conservative Congressmen and their staffs, all GOP lurkers who are in positions of authority, to (if anyone is going to make this a Walgreens Lunch Counter Sit Down-type civil rights movement to set the spark to the inevitable) that THEY excercise a little courage and GET OUT IN FRONT OF THE TROOPS and be the first to be handcuffed and go to jail on principle, in defese of the future of our country. We even even a Congressman for Pete's freakin sake, today, who did this in courage in the 1960s, John Lewis....and the lib media salivates over him and his former civil rights colleagues as if they were the absolute saviors of the Republic. There is even museum after museum and documentary after documentary made in their honor(s). Fine.

But now we face an even uglier adversary than Racism. Facism and Statist Totalitarianism -- on the installment plan. The proverbial "foot in the door" which we all know is what they are doing.

Come on G.O.P. Congressmen and Congressional staff lurkers on Free Republic, LEAD THE TROOPS AND SHOW SOME COURAGE THIS DAY, THIS 20th OF MARCH YEAR OF OUR LORD 2010. We will NEVER forget your leading by example and not just leaving this up to the little people in flyover country. (Just post bail in time to get out and vote NO on this horrndous legislative monstronsity that is Unconstitutional to the rotten core.)

We will not only remember the Democrat's actions this weekend, we will also remember YOUR INACTION, too.

Surround the city of Washington DC,all streets , block all streets with millions of bodies, nothing moves, nothing gets in or out, not food , nothing. government can't work like that then it will come done as it did in Ukraine and checkoslovakia.

Fake idiots Rush, Savage, Beck,Hannity, Levin,O’rielly, et al could have hopped on a plane and led millions more to come to DC. But noooo they are too “busy” lounging around their million dollar mansions. That tells me that they don't care about freedom,America or stopping the democrats’ socialist takeover of America. That tells me these morons don't believe what they rant about all day and just do it to get millions. I will email these fake cretins.

Just FYI for folks in Dallas who cant get to Washington. God Bless and Good Luck All!!!

Lots of Dallas Tea Party members have been asking if we’re going to hold a protest for those of us not able to go to Washington, DC tomorrow (Saturday). The answer is YES! We will once again go back to the site of the first tea party in Dallas....

Victory Plaza (on the south side of the American Airlines Center in Downtown Dallas)

Time: Noon

Bring signs and lots of energy to show our brothers and sisters in Washington we’re keeping the spirit back home! We will need to keep our protest to the sidewalk and steps of Victory Plaza. We cannot congregate in the Plaza itself.

See you there!

Amen! That was my point, too, D_c. As in most freedom movements agains totalitarianism in our time, like in Timisoara and in Bucharest, in Prague and Bratislava and Budapest and Berlin, in Beiing, and in Chongjin, in Tegucigalpa and Caracas it arises up unrestrained from an outraged people who have literally and figuratively "Seen Red". But, often their "leaders"(in the case of the US, talk show hosts of the garden variety you named by name), while good and serving purpose, are noethelss nowhere to be found when it borders on civil disobedience--except maybe on the airwaves, and they tend to stand back and take a continuous temperature of the situation and wait until critical mass is reached, and THEN step into a leadershp role and *lead the troops*, standing at the front of it all. Many (not all!) are tea leave readers and won't put it on the line when they can and should. Many of these talk show hosts don't have much respect from me in that regard. I expect these men and women, all of them, because of the vast influence they have, to be right up there among the people today in D.C., and risking their careers, their sacred honors, if they have to commit "C.D. in D.C." to make the point. They have private planes. They can get to National or Dulles or Baltimore on a dime. Why do they just hold off and watch how it goes and THEN make a stand when they see the crowds are large enough for them safely to step in smiling for the cameras and seizing the mantle. What a bunch of Johnny and Jane Come Lately charlatans. "Talk show hosts". Sheesh. Talk. Talk. Talk. Talk. Talk. And MORE talk.

If you ask me, they spout good rhetoric, but personally they are too comfortable and will not walk the walk when push comes to shove. Yeah. Let "George" do it.
