National TEA Party, Washington, D.C., 9.12.09

Isn’t shameful that the best coverage of the tremendous Washington TEA Party happening this past weekend had to come from England? The Daily Mail reported Sunday a comprenhensive story about Saturday’s massive TEA Party . . .

Up to two million march to US Capitol to protest against Obama's spending in 'tea-party' demonstration

Up to two million people marched to the U.S. Capitol today, carrying signs with slogans such as "Obamacare makes me sick" as they protested the president's health care plan and what they say is out-of-control spending.

The line of protesters spread across Pennsylvania Avenue for blocks, all the way to the capitol, according to the Washington Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency.

People were chanting "enough, enough" and "We the People." Others yelled "You lie, you lie!" and "Pelosi has to go," referring to California congresswoman Nancy Pelosi.

One U.S. reader of the Daily Mail Online captured the sentiment of the majority of American when she wrote the following comment in response to the coverage of this important event by the Daily Mail Online edition:

“Many of us are excited and thrilled to see we are not alone in our serious concerns about where this country is headed. Thank you, Daily Mail, for printing the truth. The tea parties and townhall meetings throughout the country over the past few weeks have been incredible displays of Democracy in Action, where regular folks are finally starting to speak out. The turnout today in DC was incredible. We are all so fortunate to live in freedom, the United States and our friends across the pond. God bless!” GoCardsDeb, Louisville, Kentucky, USA, 13/9/2009 00:36
