Conservative Woodstock Rocks the Capital

Patriotic anti-big-government taxpayers blast through the million protester mark.


September 12, 2009, Washington, D.C.  –  by EL MARCO

Americans flooded D.C. in what people in the crowd were calling “a conservative Woodstock”. Like the liberal Woodstock of the ’60s, thousands were rumored stranded on freeways. Some walked in to DC, ditching their cars and busses. I walked with a 5 deep 6 block long column of protesters from Pennsylvania who had walked miles from where they had to leave their busses. Networks including Fox News continued through the time I’m writing this at 8 p.m. local Eastern time reporting that “tens of thousands” showed up. Whasup with that?  When will we get some reliable reporting out of the corporate media types? UPDATE: Two days later, there is still no conclusive count of the participants. Michelle Malkin’s site goes over the whole issue on a post linked at the end of this article.

Protesters flooded Washington today in what people in the crowd are calling “a conservative Woodstock”. Like the liberal Woodstock of the ’60s, thousands were rumored stranded on freeways. Some walked in to DC, ditching their cars and busses. I walked with a 5 deep 6 block long column of protesters from Pennsylvania who told me they had walked miles from where they were forced by gridlock to leave their busses. Networks including Fox News continued through the time I’m writing this at 8 p.m. local Eastern time reporting that “tens of thousands” showed up. What is up with that?  When will we get some reliable reporting out of the corporate media types? UPDATE: Two days later, there is still no conclusive count of the participants. Michelle Malkin’s site goes over the whole issue on a post linked at the end of this article.

This event had been promoted as a taxpayer “tea party” but the crowd’s concerns were wide ranging, from outrage at the corrupt ACORN activists and Obama’s socialist cadre known as Czars, to Obama’s naked untruthfulness. Protesters also displayed signs mocking Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid for smearing the grassroots movement as “astroturfers” and an “angry mob”.

I think this gathering should be appreciated as the extremely important historical event that it is. This is the first great conservative anti-statist manifestation in American history. The conservative movement, which developed in the post-WWII, Cold War environment has now fully matured into the most significant political movement of the 21st century. I believe that this day could be referred to in the not too distant future as the day that changed America. This was the day the great silent conservative majority finally found its voice.

Many of the attendees were quite meek and timid and were unsure of exactly what to expect, this being the first time in their lives they’d been involved in a protest movement. Their fears evaporated early in the day and people reveled in the camaraderie , the joy and sheer civility that was exhibited at the entire event. Chants of “Freedom, freedom, freedom”, “No more czars! No more czars!” carried through the air without the slightest hint of the rancor which is the norm at the many leftist rallies I have photographed over the years.

The two photos above show a tiny fraction of the multitude that surged through the American capitol. I saw signs and heard lots of comments comparing this event to Woodstock. At the time this photo was taken, around 1:00 p.m., Pennsylvania Avenue was still jammed completely, and the mall was packed from the Capitol Building past the Washington Monument. See photo here.

Protesters came from every state in the union. This man came from San Antonio, TX. He said that he was really sorry he hadn’t brought his family. He stated that being a black conservative he was unwilling to expose his children to what he expected would be a lot of liberal abuse. He was thrilled with the overall tenor of the event and the fact that no liberals were present to harass him. He spoke about how incredibly intolerant the left is to black individuals who don’t bow to the party line.

Mike Pence (R-Indiana) was one of the speakers who addressed the crowd: “After years of fighting runaway government on this hill, you people look like the cavalry to me..I believe we are on the verge of a great American awakening.”
_MG_0094x

San Diego radio host Mason Weaver said from the podium: “I came here because I thought you might want to hear a black man speak without a teleprompter…This government is trying to make a nation of dependent people. Americans have always been independent people…This is not a Republican thing, it’s not a Democrat thing. It’s not a black thing or a white thing. It’s an American thing…We the people are telling them ‘No more! We’ve had enough!”

_MG_0272x

In the very center of the photo, above the Silence is Consent – Can You Hear Us Now sign, you can see Pennsylvania Ave., which at this time is totally blocked with protesters who cannot move forward to the Capitol area. Sorry, full up.

_MG_0216x

There were notable differences though, in the behavior of these attendees. Although the legend of Woodstock is that there was a friendly atmosphere of camaraderie, the truth is that most people were there for the drugs, sex and rock and roll. Today in D.C. there was a true kinship amongst these people based on shared values and intellectual understanding of what America is and how its future is imperiled by big radical government.

No one was having sex in the Reflecting Pool let alone the mud, and I saw no one projectile vomiting on the steps of the Capitol. There were no warnings to avoid the bad acid which would send you on a trip to the hospital. Not just a different era, but a different level of civilized behavior and thought. Oh, and by the way, these people didn’t leave tons of garbage behind when they left. Actually they left no trash behind at all.

_MG_0025xWorld’s #1 Crypto-Marxist. Endorsed by Fidel Castro: “The most powerful progressive candidate to the U.S. presidency.” – GRANMA, Havana, May 26, 2008

Dictator Castro did indeed endorse Obama. Note that he used the word progressive to describe Barack? Well thats because the Libs gave the word liberal such a bad smell by their behavior and policies over the years that they had to abandon it. They started referring to themselves as progressives and figured no one would notice the word’s communist pedigree. It means progress on the road to socialism and Castro understands it that way.

Well darn it Martha, look at that! The president really is a progressive just like NPR says he is !!

_MG_0222

Nancy Pelosi has accused patriotic tea-party goers of “carrying swastikas” implying that they are Nazi sympathizers or worse. This event was knee deep in hammers and sickles and words like “socialist” “communist” and “Marxist”. It continues to fascinate me how the Democrat Party tolerates this without ever objecting or attempting to refute this widespread view of Obama. When will the MSM ask the questions about The Chosen One’s communist buddies and endorsers? And why do communists who absolutely loath the USA, like Castro, Chavez, Ortega, and Michael Moore worship at the alter of Obama?

_MG_0298

Ever present at Tea Parties are Sons of Liberty re-enactors. The couple on the left is from Ohio and the young lady on the right is not but she joined in the photo when I invited her. The clothing for the Ohio couple was hand stitched by the lady on the left. The lady on the right also stitched her own. This is what really hip conservatives are wearing these days. It’s all about FREEDOM!

    Thank God for the Men & Women that are able to stand up and fight for our freedom. I am behind all of you, even though I was unable to come and stand with you. Lets all pull together and clean house, get rid of Obama, all the Democrats, and anyone else that is trying to destroy our country. We have to take back our freedom and our religious rights. Again thanks to all who fight for our freedom and our country, both in the military and those through out the United States.

  • Dave Colorado Springs Colorado

    thank you to all who participated in this wonderful tea party! our country depends on our belief that was established 200 years ago in the Constitution. please continue to keep the pressure on our U.S. Congress and President that the direction they are taking us is not in the best interest of the American people. We must stop them now and eliminate them holding office in 2010 and 2012.

  • Donald

    These are the real AMERICANS ! The next time there will be
    10,000,000 that show up. Then we will see where OBAMA runs

  • Carole Pickel

    I am overwhelmed when I look at the photos taken of the Tea Party Protesters. Then I learn there were ZERO arrests during the event and NO TRASH left after the event.

    I wonder how many folks who voted for Mr. Obama would vote for him if the election were to be held tomorrow. Do you think some might change their mind? Now the same question for those who voted for Mr. McCain…Hmmmmm

  • Pat

    THANK YOU FOR SENDING THIS FORWARD. THIS COUNTRY DOES NOT HAVE FRREDOM OF THE PRESS ANY MORE. WE NEED MORE GROUPS TO STAND UP FOR THE CONSTITUTION
    ON WHICH OUR GREAT COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED.

    KEEP UP ON THE GOOD WORK AND PLEASE KEEP THIS COUNTRY INFORMED ON WHAT IS GOING ON BEHIND OUR BACKS. THANK YOU!

  • It’s good to see, how people are beginning to realize how bad things really are in this Country, and that they’re willing to stand up for what is right.
    Had I known of this Conservative Woodstock …… I’d have been there !!!!

  • Just fantastic—one of the best forwards that has been shared with me. How I would have loved to have been there! God Bless America……

  • The March On Washington- Glenn’s Dream Come True…

    On the train from New Carrollton, I spoke to Elona from Ringoes, New Jersey. She recounted how her father nearly froze to death three times in one of our tanks during WWII. Elona came to Washington to fight for freedom.

    When I emerged from the Metro at 13th and Pennsylvania, I really didn’t know what to expect. At first I read the colorful placards- then the beautiful faces of decent folk all around me- and finally I was just plain overwhelmed by the spiritual power of this grand gathering of American patriots.

    As we marched down Pennsylvania Avenue toward the Capitol, it seemed Barry Obama would soon be seeking other employment. It was not an angry crowd, more like a jubilant army- cheerful and disciplined. They didn’t even leave any trash on the street. I was never more proud to be an American.

    Kimberly and Beth from Tampa. George from Orlando. Barry from Long Island. By the hundreds of thousands they came from every state in the union to protest what has been done to our country. Texas, Ohio, Wyoming, New Mexico, California… Even Alaska and Hawaii.

    I tried to keep my eyes and ears open as to what was happening at this great convention of conservatives. According to the liberal press, this angry conclave of the rabid right was coming to Washington to protest Obama’s healthcare reform. However, unless I’m even more oblivious than my family claims, nothing could be further from the truth.

    It didn’t seem to me that any particular issue ranked far above another, but there was one common thread that tied together most of the protest signs and animated conversations. MR. PRESIDENT, WE WANT YOU OUTA HERE!

    I’d say BO’s lies took first place. I knew it couldn’t be, but it seemed like these mild-mannered middleclass maniacs had been reading my blogs- especially the last one about Obama losing his credibility. Now this wasn’t exactly a scientific study on my part. However, it did seem to me that the number one complaint about Barry was that he’s been less than truthful in his communication with America- that he is a liar. Nancy Pelosi also ranked high in prevarication.

    A close second place was clearly concern about a general loss of our liberty. The veterans in the crowd were especially angry about this- particularly any infringement on our right to bear arms. I recall a sweet little lady who came up to me and said, “You know, they have a metal box now that you can put your gun in, bury it in the ground- and it can’t be detected!”

    The next big issue which comes to mind was deficit spending. And though I rank it third, it may well have been spark that set off the powder keg. The middleclass is significantly more than miffed that Obama’s blowing money like a drunken sailor on shore leave- no offense to the United States Navy…

    I saw complaints about taxes, the Fed, abortion, healthcare, czars, Congress, Acorn- more angry declarations than one person could possibly process.

    America, you can be proud to own the men, women and children who showed up in Washington yesterday on your behalf. And while they were all respectable and orderly, they were more like a determined offensive line- waiting for their team to get the ball in the last quarter of a championship football game.

    And Glenn, if you never had a dream come true before, God surely smiled on you yesterday. At your request, hundreds of thousands of patriotic Americans converged on the nation’s capitol from every state in the union to take their country back- and tell the crooks in Washington to start packin’ their bags…

    I PRAY, GOD, GUIDE US EVERY STEP OF THE WAY TO VICTORY!!! AMEN

    Thank God above for these people!!! We not only need to take back our Country…………we HAVE TO TAKE IT BACK before there is nothing left!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks to each and everyone of you that protested.

  • Rosella Vazquez

    I think it is great that the common man can have his voice heard. It’s about time we do something about what is happening to us. I am 84 years old and my husband was a WWII veteran. He must be turning over in his grave to see what is being done to true, patriotic Americans. You have never seen such pariotism as these veterans display. Let us honor them.

  • Conservative from Idaho

    I am so glad that my generation is starting to open their eyes and see what our government is trying to do to us and to OUR AMERICA! Brainwash the kids in our country and everything; remind you of someone? Please never give up! I may not have been there in body, but I am there in spirit!!

  • Leda

    As Pelosi cries a tear because she fears violence, she calls conservatives Marxist, astroturf, thugs, mobsters, and every other name in the book, which of course doesn’t anger anyone. She never speaks of the Liberal who bit of someones finger at a rally, or the anti abortion protestor who was murdered. NO There were no arrests in Washington DC by any Protestors and they left the DC are in good, clean condition, unlike the liberal War Protestors or the Rodney King Rioters

    We need to continue to unite, continue to protest and continue to STOP all the madness in the District of Corruption (DC).

    Congratulations to all of us who have developed the knowledge and courage to defend our Constitution and our Bill of Rights!

  • Paul Noel

    The next step, and it must be done quickly, is to make sure there is transparency in the vote counting process, or we’ll be screwed again. Right now, Diebold (or whoever has the contract with the Feds) are the only one’s with “first access”. Former employee’s have stated to under oath that it’s easy to “hack” the vote count. Our work is just beginning.

  • Jean Lodeen

    Thank you to all the people who bombarded Washington in this “tea party”. I agree 100%!!!!

  • OMG!!!!!! Our founding fathers would be so proud of all of you that marched. I am heart sick and worried sick for the American people. Someone needs to listen. We can not go on this way any longer. For the record I did not vote for this President. He has made a mockery of the office. How can we be proud of our President and trust our President that lies everytime he opens his mouth. We can not give up. YOU GO AMERICAN PEOPLE. Lets not give up keep going.

  • Judy Walton

    I deeply applaud each and every person who took the time and money to go to DC to let this “government” know where most of Americans really stand. You will in one way or another be rewarded for your sacrafice. Please keep it up and don’t get discouraged; YOU are making a difference and God bless each of you and your families.
    Sincerely

      Thanks to you Ringo. Ringo is a photographer in south california who bravely chronicles the madness of the left wing democrat protesters in that area of the USA. His work is important for all of you who are new to, or thinking about joining a “right wing” protest movement. Ringo’s photos clearly illustrate the over the top madness of left-wing groups and how not to behave in public. El Marco

Where are you from and where is your black friend from? Many people love his sign and others hate the fact that this photo does not fit the decades old liberal photo cliche of white man bad black man victim.

  • Jim gennarelli

    All I can say after seeing what happened in DC is that it has never been a better time to be an AMERICAN. A real American one who is so proud to have been born here and one who remembers the Patriots of World War 2 ,Korea.And yes Vietnam. Now in the middle east and evey place that we have an American fighting man aand or woman. Proud of a country that will always reach out to help any cvountry in need even the countries that have scorned us,spat upon us and who continue to do so even after we have helped them for they know that the next time that they are in need we will be ther to help take thier butts out of the fire. Why? because we know that this great country of Ameica has been out but never down. It is not in our blood to give up to an oppresive government thus dishonoring the many men and women who shed thier blood for this great Country. WE the People under God. Let us not forgetGod lest He forget us.Thank You AMERICA

    An old semizdat joke says that the aging Stalin asked a soothsayer when he would die. “You will die on a great holiday” predicted the soothsayer. “Which one” asked Stalin. The soothsayer responded: “Whatever day you die will be forever celebrated as a great holiday”. The same could joke could be said about the day that Obama and his gang leave office, saving the United States from tyranny.

  • Tree Hugger

    Enjoy it while you can, dinosaurs. Your own guy said it best: The meek shall inherit the earth. Not the gun-toters. Not the war-mongers. Not the racists, nationalists, xenophobes Not the money-changing capitalists. And certainly not the selfish, self-absorbed pork-bellies “marching” (shuffling?) on 9/12. “Your” time (if you ever really had one) has come and gone. As Mr. Dylan (a noted “commie”) sang, “The old road is rapidly fading. Get out of the new one if you can’t lend a hand. For the times they are a-changing.” When I looked at these pictures, I realized: We’ve already won.

    • miketheorganist

      Wrong-o, tree hugger, you have lost. The reason I know you have lost is that your side is reduced to your most basic card in the deck, calling us racists. These people care about their country and do not wish to see it reduced to the pathetic level of the late unlamented Soviet Union. They don’t care what the Big O looks like. You either do not believe this is the Obamanational goal, or you just don’t see it. But you will, buddy, because if your side ends up with everything you want (although it’s tough getting it all at once, you rile people up when you do that) one day it will slap you in the face like an SEIU thug with a set of brass knuckles and you will realize that what you wanted has ruined YOUR life too, taken YOUR freedom, and left YOU dependent on the Crypto Commies for your very life.

    • admin

      Tree hugger, Your comment shows you as an anti-semite (money-changing capitalists) and a cultural nincompoop. Dylan was a songwriter and musicologist and always took pains in interviews to distance himself from communism that was a strong element in the “folk music” milieu in which he found himself. He is as far as I know a christian now and he did leave New York to get away from people like you. Read Rolling Stone interviews. He talks about your type. El Marco

    I was there and this presentation is the very best yet. I thank whoever put this together because it is right on the money. I’m a vet of WW2 and Korea and I love my country and we need to stop the bleeding. In 2010 don’t vote for an incombant vote for the challenger. It doesn’t matter if republican or
    democrat or Independent just make thaty change. In two major elections the 535 that are there will be gone. Now get TERM LIMITS.

  • SAm Sunseri

    HI , I’m a ww2 vet and have been so concerned that we were going to lose everything we gained with the winning of that war and what we accomplished when it was over. Our government seems to want to undo everything 11 million worked so hard to get done. This does not to well with me and so many other Veterans. But our time seems to have passed and age has restricted what we are able to do phyically. Thatts why I’m ams so proud of the efforts of so many REAL Americans doing what our fore fathers allowed us to do in our constitution. Thank you all for the wonderful efffot put forth on the behalf of all TRUE AMERICANS who ar unable to partisipate.

    Keep the pressure on if we the people want change, the new world order is trying to bankrupt us and and keep us down and depressed, rise up and take back the USA, the people in our Goverment are voted in by the people and for the people. and they seem to be there for their own agenda not ours so we need to clean house. at the rapid commuist agenda we will be like old Russia in no time, we need to be like France and present consistant pressure on the government to get ahold of our constituants for a American agenda, not a commuist agenda. we are dealing with widespread GREED in goverment and large business, Exxon, Fannie Mae, AIG and so on. I have wached my brothers at work lose their jobs and many others in this country. and on a side note why is out new leader letting in all these new Muslems? makes u say Hummmm. look up Teddy Roosevelt operation WETBACK. I dont want offend the mexican americans I have many friends that are hispanic and went to catholic school in S. Texas and been around them all my life. they are wonderful people and very caring and giving and hard working. Listen to Carlos Mencea he speaks his mind with no regrets.

  • People I talk to keep telling me: “I wish I was there!” The American people are awakening.

    It was beautiful. If you wanted to take a picture, people moved out of the way before you asked. Crowds parted to let you in. Someone started singing “America the Beautiful” as we walked up Pennsylvania Avenue. Chills ran up my spine!

    After the march people were picking up trash. The trash cans were overflowing but the grass was amazingly free of debris. I met people from all over this great land. America lives in our hearts.

  • Jane Dilatush

    Thank you so much for showing those of us who stand for liberty and the Constitution that so many more are out there too. I truly believe in thise country and all those who have come before to give their lives so that I may stand with those today who will not give up this country’s legacy without a fight. Those of us who have worked and sacrificed to remain free and not dependent on big government shall continue to believe that “freedom” is our GOD given right. I believe in teaching a man how to fish, and not feeding them fish. I also believe in a work ethic, and taking personal responsiblity for my actions. YEAH! YEAH! YEAH! YEAH! And a million more yeahs! I am so happy this is happening. In peace we will we go to the polls in 2010 and show radical liberalism just what it means to be an AMERICAN!

  • Gene L. Wegher

    Best anti GOV. rally in years….right on ! Lets let those robbers and back stabbers know we mean business wake up America and all those liberals that put this ASS in office. Wokers and good people of AMERICA UNITE ! love it or leave it ! AMEN

  • Cliff Newman

    Thank you for posting this site. I was afraid America was dead. Now I know they just wanted me to believe it was dead. America is FOREVER!

  • Cam Summers

    We need to do this more often, but NEXT time, with the President there instead of having him run off again.

  • Al Clark

    I was not surprised when former president Carter said the opposition to Obama is racially motivated. Perhaps he was referring to his own distrust of black people?

    However, I was surprised by Cosby’s concurrence with Carter! Cosby usually has his head on straight. The real reason for opposition to Obama is the inescapable judgement of his character and politics by the company he keeps regardless of race! (By his own request!)

  • Jason Seigfried

    I may not know much about politics but I know when things are not going right. Thanks to everyone who is waking up and not allowing the government to take control. I wish I could have been there. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

  • Raymond Hayden

    We must not stop!Keep the pressure on!This goverment is trying to brake us
    and we can not let it happen.

  • Steven D. Cords

    Paine, Thomas 1791, “To be convinced that the voice of truth has been stifled in England, the world needs only to be told that the government regards and prosecutes as a libel that which it should protect. [NOTE] This outrage on morality is called law, and judges are found wicked enough to inflict penalties on truth.”

  • JOAN

    WHEN WE SAY, LET GO AMERICA, CLEAN THIS PLACE UP, “WHO IN AMERICA CAN WE TRUST ANYMORE?”

    WHERE DO WE GO, WHAT DO WE DO…..IT’S LIKE THINGS ARE COMING TO AN END FOR SO SO MANY FOLKS…..”ELDERS”…….

    “GOD BLESS AMERICA AND EVERONE WHO READS THIS”

  • The Palm Beach Medical Society leadership met with Rep Ron Klein (D) just before the weekend. He graciously accepted a copy of GB’s Common Sense and just sent out a healthcare email asking that we use common sense in designing an American Healthcare solution. Perhaps there is some hope in a bipartisan solution still.

    I’ve never been so proud to be a Conservative Rebel!

  • Mr Wunnerful

    clearly,I’m the only voice of reason on this site …….and I will be banned in 5….4….3…2….1…..

  • I’m an old fart, been around for lots of years, this sure did my heart good to see people stand up and do this. If it had been here I would have been on the ling all so.
    I have been concerned about this Country and the Goverment for the past 35 years or so.This Reasured my feeling about people in this Country, who will not” stand by and let Congress and the President buffalo us into believeing what they say is always truthful and for our good. What ever happen to WE THE PEOPLE” BY THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE. Strange how things get slide under the rug. Like Saluting our Old Glory (flag) saying in God we trust and the right to say prayer’s in school’s.
    I for one, sincerely hope this young Generation will become a biger part of keeping there eyes wide open to this Congress and the Goverment’s intention’s to control us all.

  • Mr Wunnerful

    Can you people really be this stupid…Really? Scared, Little People.

  • Lance in Texas

    I just wanted to say thank you to all that attended this rally at the Capital. You can multiply the number by 30 or 40 to get a real sense of who wanted to be there, because believe me for everyone one of you who went there are 40 more who wanted to attend right there with you.

  • michael krause

    Sorry to have missed the “Tea Party”… The main stream media certainly missed it. I am an immigrant to this great country; have fought in two wars to defend this great democracy, and now we are under attack from within. Thank you for reminding us of the great risks our forbearers took to establish this country based on FREEDOM.
    We will not forget what was done here…
    Thank you

  • I fought in the Korean War so people just like you could have the freedom to protest when you felt there was a great need. It is evident the need is there, and so thankful thousands of people have shown their true colors. Just wish I could have joined the others for this great event.

    This is the “roots” of obama. This man is doing everything as fast as he can on every front to undermine our country on every level.
    health care: his socialized medicine, I’m a veteran, I go to the V.A. hospital for emergencies. There are only a small percent of the country that uses that, the hospital in my city is great. But you have to sit there for hours in emergency. Then if you need a prescription, hours more. Just think if everyone used it, including illegals, millions of them. obamas people aren’t that stupid, that they aren’t aware of the fact this would help reduce us to third world statis. The people that voted for him are( that stupid)and that’s what he’s counting on.

    security of the country: illegals pouring in like ants from our southern border. arabs pass easy for mexicans, yosef are you racially profiling? Your damn right I am.This isn’t a trick qestion, tell me, what people or people groups hijacks airplanes and flies them into buildings in this country?
    A) catholic nuns
    B) christian pastors
    C) jewish rabbi’s
    D) mom’s that home school
    E) returning war veterans
    F) muslim radicals from
    saudi arabia and hell holes that hate us.
    I believe obama is an image that has been forced upon us legally the last 40yrs.
    Him being president is a result of an imature reaction by many of their hatred for bush, white liberals and their white guilt, many blacks, just because he’s not white, surprise! he’s half white and african arab, barrack hussein obama, isn’t kenyan its an arab name.
    Anyone think he’s got our best in mind? write me, tell me a story, his family didn’t come over here on a slave ship, they were slave traders. What do you think arabs do in africa, study botany? They sell slaves, they still do in sudan, to saudi royalty 50 to 75 at a time for sex slaves and other menial chores. Isn’t multiculturalism fun? Funny, if your a white guy and you mention race, many react like a knee jerk reaction and call you a racist, but if your a black gangster rapper you can degrade women, talk about killing police, selling ho’s, selling drugs, and its called,”free speech”. Go throw some cold water in your face, slap yourself, wake up!!!!!! By the way, put your hat on straight, pull up your pants, quit talking like you had a lobotomy. If that isn’t you go tell your kid to get right or get out of the house!
    If you disagree with this e-mail, STAY AWAY FROM MY HOUSE!!!! If you agree with it, pass it on! send it once a month!

    I attended the Washington event and it was as great as it looks (I still stand by my estimate of 1 million) It felt like a gigantic block party!! Everyone had a big smile on their face and everyone was so happy to be with hundreds of thousands of others that feel the same way about our country!! I wouldn’t have missed it for the world! Go to RESISTNET.COM for information on future events and another trip to DC if we have to!! Until then, PLEASE contact your reps and OFTEN!! I’m emailing, calling, faxing and attending every teaparty and townhall I can find! We need to keep up the pressure and let them know that none of us will “forget” before next year’s mid term elections!!

  • Shirley

    How long can the press deny us? We are so much larger than they even know! They have awakened the sleeping giants!

  • Ruby Tyus

    Sorry, that I could not go to Washington, but I am so thankful that the caring, concerned citizens of the United States have not stood, and will not stand, by idly, and allow our country to be turned into a socialist dictatorship. This country has, and will continue to be, by the people, and for the people. Don’t allow that to ever change. Just DON’T be quiet! Stand up for what you believe.

  • James Maverick

    I am sooooo glad to see that my Fellow Americans! are not standing around letting any of this just happen. Reminds me of my youth when people used to boycott companies, and markets just for unjust behavior of every day people. We need more of this. We need to take the Pied Pippers Pipe away so the rest of Americans can snap out of it!

  • James

    As I read and look at these pictures Chills are running all over my body! I just wish I could have been there. Thanks for all of you that were there representing what I believe. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

  • Melanie

    Is there a way to share this page on facebook?

  • Rachel

    These pictures make me proud to be an American! I attend Tea Parties in my city, wish I could have attended this one! We are patriots voicing our opinion. Freedom of speech means Freedom to disagree, I thank God our forefathers fought for and gave us our Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence. They acknowledged God for all that we were given by Him. We must not let these be taken away from us. Some of our young people have been dumbed down and must be educated to know the great heritage this country has been given. We must pray for our country, for those who are blinded with false promises from some politicians who have their own corrupt,greedy,self-serving agenda and not serving our country they were put in office to maintain. I look forward to 2010!

  • Steve

    Keep up the energy america – just make sure you read and understand what you’re fighting for. Be informed, not just a follower!

  • tina carvalho

    im just wondering
    why did he get voted by these very same people?
    where were all these people then?
    are the voters of Mr Obama also in this event? if not? what is going on in the “United” Stated of America, how can there be such a divide in such a large country?
    you people are in serious trouble if this is so, in my humble opinion, and we in the world need the American people to be and remain united and strong and leaders.

  • K7L3

    KEPP UP THE GOOD WORK, EVERYBODY WHO PARTICIPIATES IN THESE PROTESTS ARE GREAT, THE ONLY ONES WHO ACTUALLY LIKE OBAMA’S PROGRAMS ARE HIS CREW THAT MAKES THEM POSSIBLE, WE HAVE TO THROW THE RED FLAG ON HIM!

    GO AMERICA! WHERE THE FREEDOM IS!

  • BILL LAZAR

    AMERICA HAD BETTER WAKE UP TO THE CANCEROUS LEFT WING PARTYS AND THE STEALING BY THE CONGRESS AND THE HOUSE WITH THEIR
    OUTRAGEOUS BENIFITS AND UNNECESARY PERKS.

    ALSO THE CONTINUING NEVER ENDING SEX MURDERS OF CHILDREN AND WOMEN
    THE PENALTIES FOR CRIME OF THESE TYPES ARE A JOKE !

    MANY FOLKS BELIEVE OUR SO CALLED AMERICAN JUDGES ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE LIBERAL VERDICTS ON SEX MURDERS ,, RAPE OF CHILDREN ALSO ARMED ROBBERIES WHERE FOLKS ARE BIENG MOWED DOWN LIKE DUCKS IN A POND!!

    MANY OF OUR (JUDGES) ARE SEX OFFENDERS THAT HAVE NOT BEEN CAUGHT IN THE ACT .

    OUR LIBERAL AMERICAN LAWS WILL CONTINUE TO AFFECT OUR CHILDREN AND OUR WOMEN
    UNLESS AMERICA INSTITUTES A SWIFT DEATH PENALTY AND CARRIES IT OUT WITHIN A SHORT PERIOD AND WITHOUT ALL THE PHONY APPEALS .

    AMERICA , AMERICA HAD BETTER WAKE UP ! LIBERALISIM HAS AND WILL DEGRADE THIS ONCE GREAT COUNTRY !

    crime against your children is the sickest heartbreaking offense perpertrated against american families we must have a swift death penaltie
    for the drug addicted trash in america .

    WAKE UP !!

  • Ken Watkins

    My wife and I have seen these days coming for years. We have written hundreds of letters, sent thousands of emails and prayed thousands of prayers that God Jehovah the great I AM will guide His church and our leaders and bring us all back to Him. HE is listening! I, from the depths of my soul thank each of you for speaking out for freedom. The freedom America has known since it’s founding is the sweetest thing on earth and in heaven. There is nothing that can top that sweet feeling and knowledge that one is free. Free from tyrranny, opression, subjugation, deception, fear etc. etc. Keep the liberty bell and the “Spirit of freedom” ringing loudly. Never let it cease. And it’s great to know that those that have tasted that sweetness can recognize liars and deceivers almost right away. You do not ring right, look right, feel right, and eventually you leave a bad taste. Let freedom ring and reign over America. God bless and bring America back to you. Ken E Watkins

  • James A Albert

    All Politicians Should be limited to two terms in their elected offices in all branches of goverment. Only then they would be permited, after five years has passed, to run for a goverment job.
    Our founding fathers never thought that politicians would make a lucrative carreer out of a congressional appointment.

  • Isn’t it amazing that the “driveby”media missed this event!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • annelouise

    Im sorry, but all I see in this crowd are a bunch of mis-informed boobs. Stop insurance company fraud, stop cancelling people because they are TOO sick. And like the previous poster, stop the stupid war and save billions. All of you make me sick.

  • Kawigirl

    Your pictures have got to be the best and most moving I have seen. Your piece on 9/11 just tears my heart out, I cry every time I look at it. Keep up the good work!!

  • fermin iraneta

    This is a day to remember Sept. 12,2009,wake up America save the freedom fight for it.

  • Ray

    GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH! Don’t give me false promises of change. Give me 2 term limits. Give me downsized government. Give me downsized spending. Don’t give me false promises of change……….
    Give me back my COUNTRY – NOW!

  • Mrs. Catherine Costello

    Hi,

    This is GREAT!!!

  • yvonne

    I couldn’t agree more. I am not into politics, I do not BELONG to an organization, nor do I choose to be a registered voter. However, I am well read in Global History while most Americans are not. After the 8 years of ineffective (IQ below normal) garbage, I am happy to see a change being attempted. Bush left this place a mess and he said he’d fix it after the first four years. It’s embarrassing to be an American when traveling outside the US. The south is often viewed as un-educated, close minded christian cracker racists. There are children in Europe who know more about our economics then we do. I wonder why the kids are smarter there, have better health care and less drug issues. It’s not because Europe is smaller. I have visited and lived in socialists countries for months over the summers as a child. I judge someone on what they have accomplished to make this world a better place. I think that we live in a beautiful country. I do not think that uneducated people who cannot respect others differences are beautiful. When someone say’s, “keep your government hands out of my medicare.” With comments like that, it’s clear that we are living in a place where people are concerned with how loud they speak and not with what they are saying. I had a Fiance (musician, eagle scout, good old Catholic boy) in the die in Iraq. My brother is sick and he does not have health care. These pictures sadden me. People are wasting their time attending these events when they could be out making the world a better place or better yet reading a book. Too much hate and negativity.

  • Michael

    As a fireman, I responded to 13 years of 911 calls. As I know it, there were many individuals-citizens and not that the fire department would treat and transport who NEVER paid their bill. Many individuals out there know how to use and ABUSE the system; so us responsible people pay for their medical bills. DON’t allow it to get even worse!!!!!!

  • Smitty Johnson

    I thought this was very interesting but was really mad when I could not see the event on the news and all the webcams for DC were down for the day. AS a disenchanted voter, I’m hoping that maybe somebody in Washington will start listening and I’m glad that people organized enough to flood the area. Worries me that our president is more interested in himself then the country. He had a talent that people could have listened to and he could have used it for good but he used it only for feeding his own ego and eliminating some good solid principles this country had. Next election is far away but hoping there will be a better balance in government then one party in power who does not hear the people.

  • Joe DeFalco

    We can pick up America by her bootstraps if the congress and senate would list the issues, address them pragmatically and cite the true facts that govern their vote…

  • AS A WWII COMBAT VETERAN, WITH THE EIGHTH AIR FORCE, BOMBING GERMANY IN A B-17 FLYING FORTRESS, WHO LOVES MY COUNTRY AND OUR FLAG … I SALUTE ALL OF YOU FROM MY HEART! GOD BLESS AMERICA!

    I’M CERTAIN THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA IS AN ATHEIST. I AM DEEPLY HURT THAT THE NEWS MEDIA DOES NOT GIVE YOU USA CITIZENS PARADE RECOGNITION, BUT I WILL AS WE ALL DO!

    WHEN YOU’VE FOUGHT FOR YOUR COUNTRY’S HONOR AND FLAG IN A WAR, YOU APPRECIATE THE VOLUNTEERISM YOUR PEOPLE’S MARCH ON WASHINGTON AS PARADERS AND THE MONETARY SACRIFICES YOU’VE ALL MADE — GOD BLESS YOU, ONE AND ALL.

    • admin

      Mr. Morton, We salute you and thank you for your comment. Good to hear from the WWII generation. Canada’s war started in 1939 and a number of my uncles and my father joined up the day after Canada declared war on Germany. They were all in till 45. Dieppe Normandy Africa Italy Holland North Atlantic Mediterranean are some of the places they saw heavy action. They all survived but almost never spoke about it. Today Canada fights in Afghanistan with the second largest force and the highest casualty rate just like WWII. God bless the English speaking people and all those who fight against tyranny. Winston Churchill told us to NEVER GIVE IN cause thats the only way to win. Please keep speaking out. We need to hear the voices of your generation. El Marco
