I’ve been talking about it for weeks and it finally came. And what a Tea Party it was I have to declare! I am not sure of the exact numbers, but there had to be more than a thousand. Glenn Beck was not able to be there and talked about what he had seen on the television about the Tea Party and said it looked like an anti-Obama rally. It was most definately not that. It was Americans coming together to speak about their grievances against government spending and the destruction of the Constitution. Here is the video I made up of the event. Understand that I was a distance from the stage (because of the crowd!) and it was loud, but you’ll get a feel for the event.
I also covered the event on my radio show which gives you a bigger sampling of the event then a nine minute video does. You can listen to it in archives at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/freedomswings.
If you have not attended a Tea Party, you really must. It reinvigorates you! Two twenty-somethings passed me on the way to the rally and I heard one of them say, “That really pisses me off that they are doing that here.” What boneheads! What pisses her off? Fighting for our country? Celebrating our patriotism? Fighting a soft tyrannical government? When will these liberals wake-up? When America is no longer that “shining city on the hill?”
