Something is brewing in America, and it is gaining momentum. First they had the tea party protests, then this summer they had the town hall meetings. The Democrats were caught off guard at this grassroots protest. Conservatives don't usually protest, I know I never have, not even in my more radical university days. So what is motivating Americans to protest now? I remember reading Ayn Rands "We The Living", and now we are hearing the same refrain from the American people. It is "We The People" who elect the politicians.
The Democrats are late starting, but they are revving up the union and Acorn machine, and it is anything but grassroots, it appears pretty militant to me, but what do I know up here in Canada, except what I find on the internet.
Let me compare and contrast once again, but this time with the two types of protests.
First we have the tea parties and town halls, mostly peaceful, but lots of yelling. Most people get emotionally involved about health care, but I think it's more than health care that has people upset, it's not just Republicans joining the tea parties, it's American patriots.
The TeaPartyExpress Bus is stopping at over 30 cities in America with the last stop in Washington on September 12th, 2009. If even people up here in Canada are watching, what must it feel like in the US? Change is brewing, but I'm not sure it's the change Americans expected.
Compare: Obamacare bus comes to Indy.
Contrast: Tea Party Express in Indy.
Now you tell me, who are the real Americans protesting for something they believe in, and who are the phonies?
September 12th should be interesting.
