Independence Day Tea Party Gala Extravaganza
Posted by Dave Blount at July 6, 2009 10:23 AM
Interest in politics bottoms out this time of year. People are in vacation mode, and elections are far away. Despite this and the scorching heat in some parts of the country, the Independence Day Tea Parties were a great success. Hundreds of thousands turned out at over 2,000 rallies in all 50 states. Even some mainstream media outlets have been forced to admit that the movement is significant and growing.
If the power-mad statists infesting Washington do succeed at destroying America and replacing it with a wretched, half-starved socialist slave state, it won't be without resistance.
