Here is the article I wrote. But that was not the case in DC, where an estimated 1.7 million people attended the event. Now that’s what I’m talking about.
Obama was voted into office with only 63 million votes, a far cry from the entire population of 300+ million. This event could be a turning point in history as the people look like they have had enough.
Here is some information from an email I received about the event.
“The sleeping giant has indeed been awakened! On Monday I think Glenn Beck is going to roll out a plan to vote out the 56 Senators and Representatives who come up for reelection in 2010, who aren't onboard with conservatives. I suspect he will be watching them closely. He has the viewership to hold them accountable!
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. “
Here are some pictures of the crowds;
This was no small protest with 1.7 million in attendance. The next day Obama's senior advisor David Axelrod said, 'they don't represent main street views' and 'my message to them is they are wrong'.

The Democratic leadership is in denial. The crowds are growing at every event and with each new bad policy they come up with. Here is a article with many more pictures and videos about the DC Tea Party.
