Thousands Rally in Capital to Protest Big Governmentimages.huffington...
Made popular 1866 days ago in Society & Religion
nytimes.com — A sea of protesters filled the west lawn of the Capitol and spilled onto the National Mall on Saturday in the largest rally against President Obama since he took office, a culmination of a summer-long season of protests that began with an opposition to health care and grew into a broader dissatisfaction with government

On a cloudy and cool day, the demonstrators came from all corners of the country, waving American flags and handwritten signs explaining the root of their frustrations. Their anger stretched well beyond the health care legislation moving through Congress, with shouts of support for gun rights, lower taxes and a smaller government.

But as they sang verse after verse of patriotic hymns like "God Bless America," sharp words of profane and political criticism were aimed at Mr. Obama and Congress.

Absolutely not! At least not for me. Whoever voted yes... do you know what a tea party is? lol Do you know their arguments? They are pretty good ones. There are blacks and hispanics and all types of people involved with the tea parties.

I believe all of you Obama lovers are racists. Black people to day are a descries to there ancestor and some one like Martin Luther King who stud for freedom for all.
People today cry racism if they don't get what they won't.

Every officeholder deserves the right to be evaluated by voters on the merits of that person's abilities and actions in office. Sometimes I disagree with some of President Obama's policies, but I very much respect him as a dedicated and hardworking leader. He has demonstrated great conscientiousness and sagacity in my opinion. The tea parties are helpful for our system because they reflect voter interest and civic concern. (I don't always agree with speakers at those events either, but our nation is so fortunate to have so many active and politically concerned citizens like the ones who attend these functions). We are blessed to have the Bill of Rights and the United States Constitution!

These are everyday Americans fighting to keep our freedoms. How is it that the race card is always pulled? Afraid? Stop the nonsense! Americans all over this country are sick of the spending and the disregard for the American Constitution!

We are all legal Americans! We have the freedom of speech and we oppose what this government has done and is doing to us!

God help American and Great job to the folks who went to Washington!
