More photos of the DC "Kill the Bill" rally!
Self | 3.21.10 | ohioWfan

Posted on 03/21/2010 12:12:57 PM PDT by ohioWfan

On Thursday evening my husband and I made the decision to drive to Washington D.C. to be part of the "Kill the Bill" protest on the Capitol lawn.

We had been a part of the 9-12 DC Tea Party, having been part of the Tea Party movement since it's beginning, and have a vested interest in making sure this monstrosity doesn't pass (it is pending as I type this).

We drove to DC Friday evening and drove back Saturday, not able to stay for the entire event because of church responsibilities Sunday morning, but we were thrilled to be a part of this huge gathering of American citizens, and I hope these photos give a feel for what we were about, and how powerful a voice "We the People" have.

As the protest developed and our loud voice was heard, we were told by Michelle Bachmann and others in Congress that our being there indeed was having an effect on what was going on inside the Capitol building in front of us. (The Slaughter of the Constitution went down while we were there).

We broke up to go into the Congressional office buildings and "visited" the wavering Congressmen (we spent most of our time at John Boccieri's office).

If the bill passes, you can be assured that our fight is not over. We must win this battle, and if they succeed in passing this destructive, unconstitutional bill, we will fight to have it overturned.

These are a few of my photos of the event. May God bless and have mercy on America!

After the "visits" chanting to those who would hear in Congress......

Lord, have mercy on this great nation if this bill should pass, and give us the courage to fight the good fight until we get our country back!

I don’t know if they were Congresspeople or staff, but they were interested in what was going on. :)

They estimated 40,000 on the lawn, and there were many thousands more on either side and behind.

At least 50,000. Probably more.

We were LOUD!!

What great and I mean GREAT photos!

I always wonder why the press never speaks to the warmth or certain aura of the tea party crowds? I mean the very LOOK of the people, so American, so UN-thuggish and Non-confrontational. More like Grammy and PaPaw and aunts and uncles and families.

I don't get it.

Do they not see AMERICA when they see these good, good people?

Thank you for going, all the effort and expense that took and for taking these pictures! Amazing!!

We were on the side, closer to the Congressional offices. Looked like 60,000 to 70,000 were in attendance to me.

It was our honor, Republic!

We kept saying to each other as we were driving, "We are CRAZY people!"

Followed quickly by....."Ain't it FUN??" :)

I am SO proud of Americans now....us every day REAL Americans, not the impostors on the left.

We are part of something great. Something that has not happened in our lifetimes. It's just amazing.

The time for peaceful protest is over.. Nancy and crew at the very least should have been shoved or spit upon as they walked by the protesters in Washington.. People do not undestand this enemy and how they perceive us.. We are perceived as weak.

PS just my angry rantings for the day.. I apologize.. I am not myself today.. I sense something is very very wrong with this bill...

A great pic would be Pelosi as Marie Antionette saying, “Let them eat cake!” Followed by citizens force feeding her some “humble pie!”

Can anyone make one of those?

They said there were 800 people there from California!

Can you imagine if we had known about it before Thursday what the crowd would be like??

Yes. I agree. I think the protesters made ALL THE DIFFERENCE, in fact.

I everyone caught the mad hatter Uncle Sam hat that had a ticket in it saying "Can't Blame Bush" .

I mean.......ROFLMAO!!!

Gotta LOVE American ingenuity.

Those signs should be complied into a book...and SENT DIRECTLY to the RNC leadership. For withing the writing and pictures on those thousands of signs were the stones of a true conservative foundation.

Shepard Smith on Fox has been making snide statements all along about the protest, just grilled Ohio Republican on why he won't support the bill

The guy is stone down for Dims

He's also been pedaling the "n-word" and "homophobic" slurs BS

The clown is really showing his true colors today
