Some months ago, Texasdarlin published my piece Rally for the Republic, which was actually a dream I had as the voices rose and the tea parties began to advance. As it turns out, many patriots had that dream, and it’s coming true on September 12, 2009, in Washington, D.C…..and all over the country!
Spurred in part by Glenn Beck’s vision of America the day after September 11, 2001, the march in Washington on September 12 is a day we remember that we are all Americans, not democrats, republicans, independents; not ‘of color’, not young, old, or middle aged, but Americans. And that is what happened to me, as to many, this year: we dropped our labels and became Americans.
There are many resources posted on the right hand side blogroll here, including the main 912 site, which shows all the cooperating organizations; the Tea Party Express, which now will have MSM attending rallies across the country; and links to follow. A schedule of events is available and you can be sure there will be many youtube videos documenting the entire event. Please also check out The Dame Truth and Logistics Monster for excellent related stories.
Of special notice is the event to honor our wounded military at Walter Reed Hospital on September 11th. Hundreds of people will participate and you may still send your well-wishes.
The Tea Party express launches from California today, and will hold Tea Party rallies in 34 cities across the nation before ending up in Washington D.C.. When you check into the site, if you are in any of the cities or know anyone there, please make sure they know they are welcome at all the rallies.
Although the obots have in general laughed at this, they are staging their own ‘counter tea party express’ bus tour in 11 cities….the schedule and locations of the made for TV events have not been published. 🙄
Constitutional Radio will be broadcasting live from the event with interviews, panel discussions, live reports, and special coverage of specific events occurring throughout the weekend. Live streaming video will be available.
In the meantime, Bob Basso as Thomas Paine has a new inspiration for us all.
We the People of the United States.
