It was nice to see some patriotic Americans in the state of New Jersey. Despite the cold weather and the small venue there was a good turnout. Everyone there, Republican, Libertarian, Independent and even some Democrats are fed up with Corzine, ever increasing taxes, ever increasing spending and ever increasing government reach into our lives.
The yahoos on MSNBC want to treat these events with disdain, and I imagine their coverage would have been different had this been an anti-war rally when Bush was still here to kick around, but the people who attended these events are people with real concerns about the direction our country is going. The fact that there were 700 of these events in all 50 states, largely organized on Facebook, and not by the Republican Party, is representative of the unease with which a large segment of he population view our government and both political parties. The attendees at the Piscataway Tea Party were just as outraged over President Bush’s bailout as they were with Obama’s creeping socialist policies.
