200,000 True Patriots Marched Peacefully In Support of an Improved Economy and in Support of Our President!

A Peaceful Crowd of people estimated at 200,000 rallied near the Lincoln Memorial in the U.S. capital today. These peaceful marchers energized their Loyal American base a month before pivotal congressional elections. This crowd was over twice as large as the Hate-Filled Anti President Obama rally last month led by far right zealot Glenn Beck and funded by the Big Business Tea Party supporters, the Koch Brothers.

The rally, held under sunny skies, was titled "One Nation Working Together." Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO labor organization, urged the crowd to "promise that you'll make your voices heard, for good jobs and justice and education today and on Election Day." Republicans are trying to regain control of Congress from President Barack Obama's Democrats in the November 2 congressional elections.

Unlike the Koch Brothers funded rally, this True Patriot rally was sponsored by every day Americans, including union workers, civil rights groups and liberal Humanitarians who have been struggling to get their messages heard during an election campaign in which media coverage has focused on Tea Party anger against our President and his policies.

Denise Gray-Felder, a spokeswoman for the organizers of the rally, estimated that 175,000 to 200,000 people attended. Roxanne Bunnell, a 29-year-old student from Washington, D.C. who attended the rally, said she hoped it would get progressive voters riled up. Some right wing opinion polls have indicated an election
"enthusiasm gap," with Republican voters expressing hate and anger in casting their votes versus the more peaceful and Presidential supporting Democratic voters.

Many of those at the rally were derisive toward the Koch Brothers sponsored conservative Tea Party movement that has helped energize Republicans ahead of the mid-term elections.

One sign in the crowd read, "Axis of Ignorance = Tea Party, Republicans, and Fox News," referring to the cable TV news channel that showcases many prominent conservatives. "I feel the liberal progressive voice of America has not been heard," said Michelle Ridley. Ridley said she came out to show support for healthcare reform and President Obama. Rally participants said they support the Democrats and the Obama administration.

Dee :

Thanks for information of these important events, that unfortunately are not so publicized as the Madness and Superb Foolishness of Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin.

Wackos, Crackpots, Crazies and Cretins attract more Attention than the current normal people.

I am also a little astonished that "Dee from Texas" has not blogged on the Great Amazing Hypocrisy, Falseness, Insincerity, Shamelessness, Racism, Unkindness, Inhumanity, Brutality of that Great Pinocchio of California.

The Queen of Lies, Deceit and Deception :

Did you guess ??

Yes, it is Meg Whitman !

Cheers !

This is laughable. It wasn't even close. I was at the Beck rally. No crowd at all in the whole area on the east side of the reflecting pool at "One Nation". That held thousands at the Beck rally.

I saw a lot of signs for the Socialist Party at the One United rally. That's where the left has us headed...

I dare you to print this. I've had previous posts never shown and I've never said one angry word or used a foul mouth. So...I won't be surprised if it never shows up.

Funny, Jools.

I saw several news reports that reported the truth on the numbers at both rallies. The truth is, they were about the same size in numbers.

However, this rally had All colors, all races, all ethnicities in attendance. No one was angry. No hate filled signs. No big dollar Koch brothers sponsoring the event.

Also, I've posted ALL of your comments, even the comments where you've said you'd never post again.

Why so angry Jools?

Why do you get angry when there are hundreds of thousands at a rally that opposes your (and Glenn Beck's hate-filled) views?

Sad!

Well, Dee, wouldn't you be angry if you were accused of being at a hate filled, Anti-Obama rally when you knew that was not the case. I was accused by you because I was actually there, Dee. There were NO signs. There was NO message of hate. It was a tribute to our troops, to our founding fathers, to our constitution, to God. There were no signs regarding immigration, no signs regarding health care, cap and trade, nothing of the sort. It was not political. Not one speaker even asked anybody to vote.

NOBODY paid for my flight, my hotel, my meals, unlike the several unions that paid their members to attend the One United rally. The Koch brothers sure don't know my name or the name of anyone else of "the commoners" who came to the rally. If the Koch brothers paid for the johnny on the spots or the amps, so what? Is it only ok if big labor unions pay for these things to support their causes?

This post provides a little idea how folks feel about Obama's policies in his hometown. Just another demonstration of public sentiment about Obama.
