I've been watching the 9-12 Glenn Beck video all day and I'm pissed. I can't stand the Republicans, I don't do if for them, I hate them. But when I watch that video and see our founding fathers it stirs me like nothing else, they were noble men, worthy of our sacrifice. How weak are the American people going to look if only a few thousand show up? That pretty much gives them the "full steam ahead" message. I'm leaving home Friday night and sleeping in my car and Marching on Saturday, I can make it there on time. This is it, it's for my children. My oldest son is 12, his world is screwed not to mention my younger children. It's now or never. I've been disconnected for some time, not caring (because it's pointless) but voting properly only to make no difference. I am ready for action and I am pissed that we failed, we failed our founding fathers, we failed our soldiers, and sadly, we failed our children.
Yes - three of us from the Pacific Northwest will be there. We need hundreds of thousands - if not a million - people there.
I’ll be there.
We’ll be there.
My wife and I will be there.
I assume no signs are “permitted”...
Currently 3 bus loads from the Morristown (NJ) Tea Party going.
I will be in DC Sep 10 - 14. Looking forward to meeting fellow Freepers at the Free Republic Convention and also attending the Taxpayer Protest.
Probable incognito. :)
Wish I could. I am going to do something here in Tampa. Everyone who can’t go should hit the bricks locally.
I’ll be there...Come to the FR Dinner, at least.
From Connecticut. 2 going with me and maybe 4.
Why don’t you sign up and stay for the whole Freeper Convention Sept 11-13 too?
I wish I could go, but can’t for about 17 different reasons (i.e. kids, money, hubby’s bday, etc.).
Someday, however, I WILL be able to do this kind of thing. I absolutely can’t wait!
If even 25,000 show up it will be cool. I saw the Express on tv last night. The signs are getting better and better.
5 here - from Georgia
I’m in...but what beats the shit outta me is why we can’t get a couple MILLION in there? Just a day trip for more that that...some of us are coming from cross country, but draw a circle around DC and include all the conservives in a five-six hour drive, there has to be a million. At least. Why aren’t they coming? ALL OF THEM? I don’t get it. Think small, get small results. Think big, change things. Remember the War protests and civil rights marches that really DID change laws and get the government to change? It wasn’t done with a few thousand. We need to FILL that mall and choke the streets, overload the Metro and fill the city.
Two here from Southern Delaware—me and the missus.
One week from Saturday—be there or be square.
If you want Obamacare and Cap and Trade to die, you need to come too.
If we get 100,000 people on that Mall, the pols on DC will be soiling themselves silly.
Then again, they are so full of it, how could you tell?
Why do you hate Republicans? Sure both ‘parties’ are corrupt. But Republicans are for smaller government not government run programs.....Democrats are for government run programs. I do not ‘hate Democrats’. I do hate what both ‘parties’ have done to America over the last 20-30 years....And it’s up to us Citizens to put them back on the right track, hold them accountable, because both parties are on the wrong tracks and heading for a collision.
Freedom is a very jealous mistress. To possess her, we must reject her longtime competitor; slavery to governmental intrusion.
So, lets analyze the basic forms of government. They are, Monarchy or Dictatorship ruled by one, Oligarchy ruled by a few, Democracy ruled by the majority, Republic ruled by law, and Anarchy which is ruled by no one
These calculating anarchist work to break down the existing government with rioting, killing, looting, and terrorism. Tragically, the people living in such chaos often go to those best able to put an end to it and beg them to take over and restore order. Who is best able to put an end to the chaos, the very people who started it? The anarchist who created the problem then creates a government run by them, an Oligarchy, where they have total power. This is exactly what happened in Russia that led to Lenin taking total power and in Germany where Hitlers Brown Shirts created the chaos that brought him to power.
Democracy - majority opinion rules.
What about Republic? Well that comes from the Latin, Res, meaning thing and Publica, meaning public. It means the public thing, the law. A true Republic is one where the government is limited by law leaving the people alone.
Many Americans would be surprised to learn that the word Democracy does not appear in the Declaration of Independence or the U. S. Constitution. Nor does it appear in any of the Constitutions of the fifty states. The founders did everything they could to keep us from having a Democracy.
In every case, they ended up with mob rule then anarchy and finally tyranny under an Oligarchy. When government power grows peoples freedom recedes.
Hope millions, but remember King Obama has all his RAT leaders in total control by fear. He has no hesitation using thug mob rule. He has graduated from just a communists leader to a dictator who has a compliant staff, the Senate, House, and his Adminisration. Does Venezuela come to mind.
I’ll be there.
I plan to piss on ted Kennedy’s grave.
No signs with pictures permitted; it ain't America no more.
But I'm planning to make a nice
Although I won’t be at the Convention, I will be there on Saturday with my flag waving high!
I hate the Republicans, yes I do, God forgive me. I’m not answering why, I do, period.
3 buses from the Cincinnati Tea Party also. Not sure how many each bus can carry.
I’m going too!! I’m in Winter Park Florida and coming up with 3 girlfriends. Noooo, silly! I’m not a gigolo....I’m a girl too! LOL
Can’t wait to show support for the greatest nation in the world!
where’s the FR dinner? any details would be great :)
Scythian, I am also going to D C. Driving there myself from the deep south. You are right. Our cause will be lost forever if only a few show up for this Historic event. If anyone is to take this country back it is We The People.
My wife and I will be there. Driving in from Chicago. We always have important things going on every weekend, but I can’t think of anything more important than this right now.
I knew it was liberal around here but sheesh!
My girlfriend and I are driving in from Lynchburg, Va.
I’ll be there from NC with at least two others. This should be fun.
Please let me know and I will be there with my husband.
912 has a meet up at the American Legion. They probably have one up there.
Too bad you “hate” the Republicans. Beck has evidently succeeded in taking the pressure off Dems and Obama by making — falsely, imo — the two parties equally responsible for today’s mess. Whatever came before, this is OBAMA’s spending; OBAMA’s policies; OBAMA’s healthcare plans. Naturally, with the help of majorities in both chambers.
If Republican/conservative voters stay home because they believe Republican candidates are just as bad as Dem candidates, the Democrat majority will be even greater.
And just what will that accomplish? Beck will be spared no criticism from the left by pretending that he’s not talking about Obama. He IS. And he should be: that’s who’s in office supporting all this horror and who’s appointing the corrupt czars.
