PostSubject: Atlanta Tea Party   April 16th 2009, 15:39

I took the 15th and 16th off from work. We gathered our signs and picked up a friend and headed to Chamblee Marta. The fun started there. We met people on the train that saw our signs and we talked politics all the way down. We got to the Capital by 3:30 PM and already hundreds were there. We sat in front of the stand.

The fun was reading the signs and talking to the people. At the peak, they estimated that we numbered 20,000. In every direction, there were people as far as the eye could see. We had helicopters above us the entire evening. Everyone was talking with everyone. People were handing out Fair Tax literature, petitions, flags and trillion dollar bills with Pelosi and Reed's picture on them.

The show was great. It started at 7:00 PM with several singers leading us in God Bless America and the National Anthem. And we said the Pledge of Alliance several times. Jonathan Krohn spoke for 30 minutes without a teleprompter!! We discovered that a young lady standing beside us attended school with Jonathan so we were giving an inside look to this prodigy and future leader.

Sean Hannity came on stage around 8:30 PM and Dick Army gave a great talk for about an hour. Sean’s show started and Joe the Plumber was there with John Rich. Neil Boortz and Newt Gringrich were piped in. We were about 50 ft. from the stage. Sean did a great show, signed many protest signs and stayed on after the broadcast and just talked to us.

At 10:30 PM we headed to Five Points to catch the Marta train. We got to see the liberal side of Atlanta sleeping on the steps of government buildings as we walked past them. They expressed irritation that we were keeping them awake. One of our signs read “iPhones for the Homeless”. If you don’t understand, ask a friend.

We got to Five Points and there were so many of us that it was as if the party were still going on. My wife and I are not usually fans of Marta and especially late at night. If I have to Marta, I generally pack. But I could not pack that night due to the obscure public gather rule. But my wife commented that she never felt so safe in Atlanta. We were with like-minded people. Everyone was talking to everyone. People were still yelling “USA” and “Hell Ya” at the train station. We had to wait for about 5 trains before we could get on and even then it was SRO until Lindberg station. My wife and I had our GCO “Guns Save Lives” buttons on. At least 10 people asked to take my picture but they were really just taking pictures of my button. We ran across many GCO’ers there. I joked about wearing the button through airport security. (I truly do that).

When we got to Chamblee station, after 11:30 PM, we were still in the company of Tea Party go’ers and still talking. We stood at the station, freezing and still talking about our country. The electricity had transcended its way along the Marta rail.

In closing, I need a day like this to remember who the real America is. I recounted how we went to Six Flags Park on Home School day and I felt like I was wondering around Mayberry. No one was afraid of anyone. Kids were polite. Lines were not jumped. I started seeing in Back&White and expected to see Barney Fife come around the corner. It is an America that still exists but has been hidden by the liberal media and pushed back into the catacombs by the academic left wing. We are still here, people. We are still the back-bone of America. We are the people who get up in the morning, get our kids ready for school and then go to work to support our families. We don’t get welfare checks. We don’t demand that the government must make our lives work. We make our lives work. But by the Department of Homeland Security, we are Right-Wing extremists and terrorists suspects.

The sign I carried read, “Proud Right Wing Extremist Here”. It was very well received.

We live on Hidden Circle in old Sugar Hill. My wife is quite a voice at city hall whenever they try rezoning the entrances to our neighborhood.

Where be you?
