Where were you on 9/12/2009? Maybe you were marching in Texas, Georgia, California or New York. If you were among the 1.5 to 2 million people marching against big government in Washington, D.C. can you find yourself in the photo here?
Okay, so maybe you can’t find yourself in the picture, but isn’t that a great photo?!? The left trying to claim that the photos are doctored, all of them I suppose. Of course they would accuse the right of that since that’s one of their favorite tricks. They say there might have been tens of thousands, but not millions. They say the right is using ’scare tactics’ while they themselves attempt the threaten and intimidate The People into complying with their wishes.
You get a handful of Code Pink darlin’s protesting the Troops and the photos are close in and there’s headlines screaming about the outrage across the nation at the war. That was when it was ‘Bush’s war’, they don’t seem concerned with ‘Obama’s war’. But you get millions marching on Washington against big government spending, and there’s a little mention that a few people are upset that the President and Congress are trying to get health care for illegal aliens or that the national debt has reach never-before-seen depths!
We are a center of right nation and Obama, Pelosi and Reid are legislating like we are the USSR. People are mad and getting madder. Instead of hearing The People, they demean, belittle, name-call, accuse, close their eyes and ears, leave town and retreat to their ivory towers.
It’s the first time I’ve ever seen a President at war with The People. In the United States at least. He declares that The People won’t stop him. He wants and will have this health care reform, The People be damned. You see, he has to have it because it gives him more control over our daily lives. The more control he and his inner circle have, the more power and riches they can have in the short and the long run.
The President calls the people who oppose his health care proposals ‘his opponents’ and vows to defeat them. Here’s a time lapse video of the crowd in Washington yesterday. These are the people who oppose various proposals being sought by this President. These are the people the President vows to defeat. The American People!

Mr. President, you are barking up the wrong tree. He really should have tried this in a country in which Communism was already tried. No, I guess he couldn’t. They would have run him out of town on a rail from the get-go.
If Obama, Reid, Pelosi and their devout followers continue to refuse to hear the concerns of the people, if they continue to be at war with The People, they will lose and they will lose big. We are a nation Of The People, By The People, For The People. We won’t go down without taking them with us. They are grossly underestimating the power of The People. We are the descendants of people who were willing to fight and die for freedom through our history. That blood is still pumping through our veins. We hold our freedoms dear.
Here’s some more reading you might be interested in!
It seems the British press is better able to count than the American press. I think we must need to send our ‘journalist’ back to school for the basic; reading, writing and ARITHMETIC!
Ed Morrissey has noticed that Obama’s rhetoric is coarsening as his opposition grows. It seems he’s getting himself all wee-wee’d up over it!
Darleen Click is also discussing the size of the DC Rally, versus the size of Obama’s rally in Minnesota. As much as the media tried to hide it, it seems The People’s was bigger than Obama’s.
AubreyJ notes that Congressman Joe Wilson says one apology is enough. Of course ‘they’ don’t think so. It’s good for them (or none at all), but not when their sensitivities have been offended.
The Lonely Conservative has a list of good reads.
The Gates of Vienna – Mr. President: you can run, but you can’t hide!
The Right Perspective says yeah, it was 2 million!
