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 was near the front of the parade, because the bus driver knew he could not get anywhere near the start off point.

Our group did not walk the entire route, starting off around 11:15 even at that by the time we got to the Capitol, the front section was full and so was the right side of the capitol lawn. We found ourselves on the left side of the lawn in the grove of trees. There was no chance of getting any closer.

This photo was near the official beginning of the parade, Dick Armey was in this block of marchers.

This little girl when asked to smile for us showed us that she could use two front teeth for Christmas. She was a real cutie.

We met these folks right before leaving. We had our first provoking liberal right after this photo was taken. She began to shout, "Health care for all" We chanted back at her, "Put it on your tab." Some guy at the stop light shouted out at her, "You are going to need health care with that fat a**.

"he demonstration dwarfed a rally held by Mr Obama in Minneapolis, Minnesota at which he promised to drive through reform with or without Republican support. 'I will not accept the status quo,' he declared."

We will not see anything this fair and balanced in the mass media. Cheers, Brits!

If you use the "crowd estimator" posted on Michelle Malkin's site and you compare the size of the crowd gathered on the west lawn, spilling over to the Grant memorial, and milling about the mall area, 250-300K seems like a decent estimate. I left at about 2 p.m. and the crowd was not that deep into the mall area.

Really, though, it doesn't matter. Our march was a HUGE success!! I don't want to argue about it . . . but I will say one more thing: The DC Police don't do crowd estimates. At all. As I was walking out I asked one (who was standing with the officer who did the orientation that morning with us volunteers) and they both said, "It is our policy to not estimate crowd sizes." But it WAS much bigger than they were prepared for. The one DC Policeman chuckled, "I'll tell you this: there's more than one person here." :o)

Correction to #168:

I meant to write, for a million there would have had to been people all the way from the Lincoln Memorial to the Capitol (not the Whitehouse).

Now I see, according to the "crowd estimator" tool on Michele Malkin's site, it would take 1.5 mil + to fill that amount of space.

I bet we'll have 3 million next year!!

Yes, it WAS huge, and 200,000 people ain’t chicken feed. Depending on the other estimates, 1 million to a hair over 2 million people joined the DC marchers in their own way by holding simultaneous protests across the country.

Am planning to be there in the Summer of 2010 to present our petition and signatures to Congress. We will schedule that event to coincide with other 912 and Tea Party events before the mid terms.

BTW, will find link, but WashPo reported that Obama took Marine One over the march on his way to MN.

Outstanding. Then he would have seen for himself and that is exactly what was needed.

I knew it was a joke but since it was in quotes, I thought they really said it. Nothing would surprise me. Gibbs did say, on Friday, that the WH had heard nothing about any protest planned for this weekend and we know that was a bald faced lie.

We were not allowed on the mall because they said we did not have the permits. Everyone started yelling, “It’s our mall.” and they opened it up.

Personally, I don’t think the organizers nor anyone else anticipated this type of crowd. There weren’t any outdoor bathroom facilities nor was the speaker system adequate for people to hear all the way down to the Washington monument. In spite of all the things people could have complained about, everyone had a great time. Dick Armey said they would do it again next year.

Harley they had port-a-pots on the left hand side near the grass entrance of the Capitol lawn.

From what I heard the police would not allow them on the mall until both sides of the capitol lawn were full, and I mean the whole lawn. I was in a grove of trees and could not see the stage at all, and there were loads of folks in back of me. People were still in the streets around 1 and it was becoming a hazard and traffic nightmare. That is when I think they began to let people on the mall.
