Cincinnati Tea Party meets downtown Cincinnati, to hold candlelight vigil and send a massage to U.S.Rep.Steve Driehaus-DWest Price Hill,to vote no on the Obama Insurance Bill. My final headcount was nearly 400, counting teenagers and children too.

Cincinnati/Hamilton County Tea Party held a candlelight vigil around the Carew Tower, where U.S. Rep.Steve Driehaus D,West Price Hill, Hamilton County, has his office. The crowd was very orderly , but vocal in their overall displeasure of the Obama Democratic Insurance Bill , and of the abortion parts of it. The crowd was upbeat, and positive, but very sober to the fact that they thought Democrats, including Steve Driehaus, would not do what is right for America. Included will be pictures taken by me, timestax.

America as we know it was just disintegrated...and we are holding a “Tea Party Protest Candlelight Vigil.”

No wonder we SUCK.

Whoops let me add that I’m sure everybody felt better about stamping their feet and shouting I’m mad as Hell and I’m not going to take it anymore....well gang Obamacare is your care now and you’re going to pay for it. Unless your not going to take it anymore...because that is going to have a much higher price than stamping your feet........

from my previous post to this Gee don't we feel better now Code Red Alert for DC--so how did that work out for us....

Look, the Dem’s know we’re mad as Hell and we’re not going to take it anymore, they don’t care. The Dems know we will bury them in November, they don’t care. The Dems know the Tea Party patriots will work night and day on their opponents campaigns, they don’t care. The Dems will have to kick the Constitution to the curb to get this bloated ugly bitch passed, they don’t care. The massive rallies against Obamacare have continued to grow, they don’t care. What they want and do care about is to bring their heel down hard on 1/6th of the economy and have the producers of this country by the short hair. The Tea Party movement needs to get serious about our reaction to this egregious ongoing effort to whip us into submission to the Nanny State. If we’re mad as Hell and we’re not going to take it anymore, then we shouldn’t take it anymore. This includes signed pledges we will ignore health care bill mandates, refuse to pay taxes associated with the bill, go to jail, start legal defense funds for in inevitable Federal charges, ferociously pursue states rights initiatives including opt out of the program, start serious discussions about secession or rebellion. It means we will have to risk our jobs put our families’ well being at risk and possibly cost us our lives. The Republicans have demonstrated repeatedly they do not have the balls to repeal government teat programs. So are you ready to do what it takes to “not take it anymore”?

It’s kind of depressing that at least two replies to your post seem to disparage the efforts of your group.

What recourse do we have right now but peaceful protest? Maybe you could only get 400 people today, but if you keep up your public education efforts, by November it could be many times more.

Why do I get the impression there are some sour and nasty people hanging out at Free Republic — exactly the kind of people who voted for Perot or who stayed home in 2006 and 2008 because the GOP wasn’t pure enough to suit them.

For my part, I will paraphrase Reagan’s eleventh commandment — thou shalt not speak ill of another Republican.

We better remember this if we expect to get our country back. There are no enemies on the Right!

Hey, I did the nose holding bit and voted for the McCain/Palin ticket,mainly due to Palin, who I did meet, and did volunteer work at one of her Ohio rallies. I’m a true Conservative, all the way.
I did NOT try to “punish the Republicans”, like a lot of people said they would do.

How DARE you belittle these patriots out on the street protesting the socialist takeover of our country?

Where were YOU tonight while they were out in the cold doing the only thing they knew how to do as individuals?

You owe these protesters an apology!

I'm going to bed.....some negative thinkers make me sick to my stomach.

Good thing you weren't at Valley Forge in the dark days.

Oh Pleeezzz—my Freep name is HatfieldMcoy from Omaha NE and If you take the time to review my posts I was part of the first Tea Party Protest a year ago in Feb just weeks after it was hatched, You will note if you take the time to know what your talking about that I posted an after action report on the Omaha Party in 16 degree weather with my photos. There were 60 patriots there that day yeah that’s Pete Rickets of Ameritrade that showed up that day I’m calling you out-— where were you a year ago?

let’s try this

You are right and so are those who have already started giving of themselves. They are doing what they feel they can do. Protest don't change the minds of those who it is directed towards, it changes the minds and the attitudes of those who protest. The 1773 Tea Party did not change the mind of the British, it changed the American mind because the British did not take the message. The socialist that have jammed this through have not gotten the message. They will. Tar and feathers will be applied. It will hurt them where it hurts the most. They will lose power and they will be forever branded with the scars of the ordeal.

We now have an opportunity to demonstrate that the left has been dictating to us for decades. They have used the Constitution as a club against us and ignored it when it stopped them. It's clear they do not uphold the Constitution they have sworn to uphold. They are hypocrites and it is blatantly obvious. They have used PC to alert our minds. They have invaded every aspect of our lives and culture. Now we can point to a demarcation. They crossed the line that most recognize as un-American (as dimwitted as you may deem most to be).

You love America and so do I. Let's stand together to defeat the enemy not ourselves. I'm taking my anger and starting to use it to fire within me a fire that has long been smoldering. I feel long past Patriot's blood flowing with mine.

Thank you for all that you are doing.

Don't pay any attention to these snide disruptors. We appreciate the efforts made by FReepers and it's people like us who will knock these Commies down eventually.

Well done.

Thank you for efforts, your service. Obviously you have been active so you know what it takes to stand up for what you believe. As when I see a person in uniform I know they have placed their life on the line already and I marvel and thank God for them. I would even thank Murtha for his service before I'd call him an A$$HOLE.

You know, there is a happy medium here. In the Tea Party movement, or any movement to overthrow the Socialists that are trying to overthrow our way of life, there is room for more than one approach. hatfieldmccoy, I suspect you are stil a vigorous, younger to middle age man, in your prime. You are much more capable of leading the brigades with the pitchforks, a frontrunner in this liberty battle, physically and mentally able to take more risks than some others in our movement.

There are also many families with young kids, religious folks, and older folks who due to the circumstances of their lifestyles and physical capabilities need to take a different approach, namely prayer vigils, protest rallies, emailing, faxing, and letter writing, in other words giving to the cause that which they are capable of. I’m for both approaches. In fact, I’m for any approach that adds cumulatively to our attacking our socialist enemy on any and all fronts.

Even in our military, not everyone is out on the frontlines of battle. There are huge amounts of support troops who serve in a variety of capacities to get things done and move the cause forward. Do you see what I mean here? We need any and all people who believe in our cause to contribute in whatever manner they can. Contributing money, licking stamps and leafleting, town criers, letters to editors, pounding the pavements, lock and loading, you name it, I’m for it.

In any war, including our Revolutionary War, there were active participants on all fronts. The women who followed their men onto the battlefield to help them, the pamphleteers who spread the word of what we were fighting for, the spies for our side, those that hid soldiers from the enemy, whatever part one can play. The fight is on, there is room for anyone who is on our side, working on any level. And that includes your way as well as the prayer vigil people’s way. Bless you all, let’s just get the job done.

“Geez you rookies wear me out”

P.S., the “rookie” you refer to, MinuteGal, was one of the original Freepers, has been actively involved in rallies, marches, meeting and event planning, money contributing, and other forms of activism since the beginning of Free Republic activities. She is also a Tea Party supporter, has held political offices herself, and has probably been more active than you throughout her lifetime. You accused her of not looking into seeing who you were and some of your activities for the cause before making comments; I suggest you are guilty of the same. One must be careful that you are not the pot calling the kettle black here.
