On 9/12 in Washington DC, America showed it was indeed fed up and they were going to be seen and heard. Amidst the town hall meetings which were set up to hear constituents--many in Congress really did not want to hear--they just wanted to tell us what they were going to do for us and that they know best. Well, American's got tired of not being heard and they banded together to send a message to Congress--this is a nation for "We the People."
It was an amazing crowd. There is no official report that accurately states the correct number but look at the picture taken from top of capitol and you know it was a huge crowd--many says-one of the largest ever. A crowd of a million is very likely as the webcams from below links pretty much attest to that and even this overseas British news agree with that.
See the amazing links to some of the pictures and videos.
Reuters News as of 9 am Friday 9-18-09 had nothing on the 9/12 rally.No matter the naysayers-- it was indeed a day to be remembered and inspired. It was an incredible way to fight the hijacking of this nation as lawmakers got a taste of what is going to happen in their districts in the next election. It was a peaceful protest full of patriotic Americans who most-- barely could have afforded this. But they put their money where their mouth is and there is many more of them that couldn't get there and will do the same. Obama was out of town but that's okay--as the message was loud and clear enough to be heard by his administration--Pelosi and Reid included. The founding fathers would have been proud. America is no longer asleep--America has gotten back to trying to run their country onto the right track. So even though most mainstream media didn't report it--I daresay our Congress and Pres got the message right in their face. Hear podcast on insight from Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt (one proud
American who stood for the right for military chaplains to pray in Jesus' name and won that right for chaplains throughout) on that eventful day in Washington DC.

Even the British are Covering It--Why Not Our Mainstream Media?--Well-maybe because they are good at misinformation these days!
I guess whatever the size of the crowd--we will truly know by next election--how many are fed up!
