912: America Awakens in 2009 (Many photos: You judge the crowd size)

912: AMERICA AWAKES IN 2009

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!

I wasn’t able to go, but man oh man does this make me proud. After November I had all but lost hope for my beloved country. Now, that hope is restored, in spades.

God bless all who went and spoke for me, and millions of other Americans.

Thanks.

AMEN! to every bit of that. For every one not there (or in other protests around the country) there were 25 more who wanted to be.

I concur. 200-300K. I was there. It was awesome, but over 1 million? Not even. Inflating our estimates only makes us look desperate or deluded. If there had been 1 million there, the entire mall would have been solid from the Lincoln Memorial to the Whitehouse. It was about a third that full.

But, again, 300K PLUS all the people across the country who couldn't make it to DC!!??? What a day for America! One personal note. Everyone one I talked to is in this for the long haul. The lefties have been at it for 40 years, minimum. We'll have to fight them for it, if we want our country back. Booyah!

I was never really good in math but that sure looks a lot more than “tens of thousands” of people...

The over a million estimate is NATIONAL. Supporting rallies were held across the country. Let’s not deliberately UNDERESTIMATE ourselves in an effort not to OVER estimate, shall we??

why weren’t people allowed on the actual Mall between the Capitol and Washington Momument?

I have to tell you what happened before the rally began. As marchers were still trying to make their way onto the grounds of the Capitol, the program organizers announced to the huge crowd already assembled that we had to stay off of the mall. We didn't have permission to be there. The crowd immediately took up the chant, "IT'S OUR MALL, IT'S OUR MALL, IT'S OUR MALL...". Then, it shifted to, "IT'S OUR DOME, IT'S OUR DOME, IT'S OUR DOME..."

My sentiments exactly. Many of my friends couldn't go because they had to WORK! So, I told them that if they make a donation to Freedom Works to help with the rally expenses, I would "take them with me". They did and I took them with me, in the form of a picture of each one of them attached to my sign. We donated $500 to the cause and they were right there with me marching down Pennsylvania Ave and standing in the shadow of the Capitol Dome. I dubbed them my "Back-Home Backers"!

Impressive! Seems like the only larger turnout in recent memory was for the illegal alien cinquo de mayo (aka ‘invasion day’) celebrations.

To guage the crowd in DC it might be worthwhile to watch the ridership reports on the Metro and compare them to workdays, other events, and peak tourist times such as the Cherry Blossom Festival.

Reports for Saturday have not been published, but they should be posted to this page within a few days: http://www.wmata.com/rail/disruption_reports/archived_service_reports.cfm

There may not have been a million at the time you were there at the Lincoln Memorial...but the crowd stretching to the Captol in the 1st picture, IMHO, tells a different story. Couple that with what was said in post 104, and I believe that million is not out of bounds in the least for the number of those who came to Washington yesterday for these protests.

I still think more people should have come to DC, although the final count had to make some impression on our public serpents. The greater the number of people out in the streets, the lower the chances of our public serpents deciding to kill us off.

When Jimmy Carter ran down America during his presidency...

Even in the Carter era, there was some economic deregulation. There doesn't seem to be any sign of that with this bunch.

There was some Black Family Reunion event in progress on part of the Mall. Us "evil-mongers" did have free reign of the mall closer in to the Capitol.
