July 4th Tea Party in Arvada CO Big Success
It was very great to see so many people, events, speakers and happenings going on in response to the out of control, running off the rails on a crazy train, socialist, government takeover of our liberties freedoms and rights.
No doubt about it, people are waking up and people are getting fed up with the direction our government and Democrats are taking this country. There were about a half dozen tea parties in Colorado and over 150 tea parties nationally today.
Best sign was from a young boy, (I'd say about 12 years old) holding an obviously self made sign in magic marker that read... "Tax Payers voting for Obama is like a chicken wing voting for Colonel Sanders"... the sign also had two teabags hanging from each side and some feathers hanging from the long stick he used to hold up the sign. (not sure what the feathers were for, maybe from the chicken...but they looked cool)
We bought some Tea Party buttons and stickers and stuff, listened to a couple of speakers including Jon Caldara and another fellow who was from Focus on the Family (didn't get his name).
There were lots of kids playing and guys with those tri-cornered hats and "Don't Tread on Me" flags and even tea party dogs were welcome as well.
Over on the side of the park, under the trees off by itself was a canopy with a "Ron Paul Revolution" sign hanging on it and about a dozen rolls of tinfoil stacked neatly underneath... to make hats with I suppose.
I guess it takes all kinds to make a tea party.
