Tea Party Protester Describes Sept 12th, 2009
September 22nd, 2009
Thank you for your heart felt words of encouragement and kindness.
I didn’t take any pictures but I will share what was common among all the hundreds of thousands of patriots I had the honor to stand beside on Sept 12th at our Nations Capital. There is a deep, profound love of God and Country expressed by those in attendance that at times would bring tears of great joy to my eyes.
The media is trying desperately to portray those in attendance as being “out of touch” with the majority of this country. We have been called all sorts of demeaning names and our intelligence has been questioned on media talk shows. I’m here to tell you, all those I talked with that Saturday are highly intelligent but possess something the media can’t understand and that is common sense, love of country and truly understand we are a Republic. A Republic – a state in which sovereign power is invested in representatives chosen by the PEOPLE to govern. And government is the PEOPLE and it’s from the PEOPLE to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people. They also have a profound understanding of Liberty – which is freedom; the right of power to live one’s own life without threats, fear or some sort of retaliation. So my dear Dr.Piazza, keep up your good work, we will continue the fight for liberty, freedom and allegiance; allegiance meaning “my love and devotion” to our country.
