Hey there everyone! I just got back from the Houston Tea Party and
I thought I would give you my view of the whole thing.
At the moment I am watching CNN, and they are blasting the Tea Parties as "Right-Wing" protests. They could not be more WRONG.
The Houston Tea Party was in downtown Houston, three blocks across from our Post Office. Thousands attended and are still attending as I write this. I
parked my car under the highway and proceeded to walk 4 blocks to join the Party in a completely packed open air auditorium. Along the way I saw
people with signs standing on the side of the road, one woman was shouting her opinion to the passing cars, getting nasty looks from the police in the
area. My Pictures are large so click this link please.
After chatting with the guys on the corner I headed to the main protest and was blown away by the number of people there.
There must have been a good thousand or two people packed into
the small auditorium.
I chatted with a few people while wading through the crowd. Not only were there Democrats and Republicans, there were
Liberals and Conservatives, there were old people, young people, black, white, asian, mexican and everything in between.
People had even brought
to join in the protest.
I am angry with CNN and a few other news networks for putting labels on these people. They are not a political party they are
Just out there trying to get their
voices heard! While there I definitely felt that there was a group feeling that we are not being represented in the Federal Government.
I would like everyone to remember it is the citizens DUTY
to question its government.
Ask yourself this question: why does that now make you an
Because the Government is too big! Too much! They are becoming Totalitarians! They call it
now, but you know what it is deep down.
