A Special Thank You To Monster Readers And The 912ers

I just saw this over at TPM Live Wire where the liberal moonbats are bashing away at the Tea Party Marchers on 9.12.09.  I just thought I would share the actual House Resolution put forward by Tom Price and 75 House republicans thanking us for showing up and being present. And for those that are still wondering, the Capitol Police estimated 2.1 million after the fact.

I never believed that the Tea Party Patriots were about forming a third party. This movement is about making the two parties we have bring forward legislation in keeping with the founding principles of this nation, and candidates that are willing to serve and not gorge themselves at the trough.

Once again to all my loyal readers, many mahalos for making that trip possible, and give yourselves a moment to pat yourself on the back and smile about 9.12.09 and NY-23.

Expressing gratitude and appreciation to the individuals and families who participated in the Taxpayer March on Washington on September 12, 2009.

Whereas, on September 12, 2009, hundreds of thousands of American patriots, who refuse to sit idly by as the Federal Government advances skyrocketing deficits, taxpayer-funded bailouts, pork-barrel projects, burdensome taxes, unaccountable policy czars, command-and-control energy policy, and a government takeover of health care, came to Washington, DC, to show their disapproval;

Whereas individuals also wanted to convey their displeasure with the future tax increases that will be required to pay for deficit-financed spending;

Whereas these individuals understand that the fundamental American principles of limited government and personal liberty are under direct assault;

Whereas this dedicated group of freedom-loving Americans believe in open, accountable, responsible, constitutionally based government;

Whereas hundreds of buses, multiple caravans of cars from across the country, and many individually chartered flights, as well as thousands of lone-traveling cars and trucks, brought these patriots to Washington, DC, solely for this event;

Whereas these individuals endured considerable personal expense to get to the march, including transportation and lodging expenses, as well as lost wages in many instances;

Whereas estimates of the number of people who peacefully marched from Freedom Plaza to the West Front of the U.S. Capitol on September 12, 2009, range as high as 1,700,000 marchers;

Whereas all 50 States were represented in the march;

Whereas this event is considered to be the largest ever gathering of fiscal conservatives in Washington, DC;

Whereas special accolades are due to the grassroots citizens organizations across the country who helped individuals exercise their constitutionally protected First Amendment rights in the Nation’s capital; and

Whereas when the current trends of government expansion and freedom retrenchment are reversed, it will be due in large part to the efforts of the hundreds of thousands who marched on Washington, DC, on September 12, 2009: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved, That the House of Representatives expresses its gratitude and appreciation to the hundreds of thousands of people who marched on Washington, DC, on September 12, 2009, to show their love of liberty and their grievance with recent government actions.

  • Unfortunately, the libs and conserves are still stuck in the left-right paradigm to keep us fighting between ourselves, while the criminal elite work their dark magic behind the scenes (next up: “climate change” conference in Copenhagen).

    DT, thank you for posting this. It means a lot to me to know they appreciate our effort and it looks like they will work toward the results that we want. Go patriots! Maybe the MSM ignored us but they didn’t!

  • Thanks for the post, Diamond. Although poor health kept me from attending, I knew that we were well represented by you.

    Thanks also for keeping us pumped up with your daily postings. I hope you realize what a tremendous thanks is due you for your dedication to your readers. Keepup the good work, and keep the movement alive.

  • Diamond… thank you for representing those of us who could not go to DC. I know I am inspired by your dedication and research skills that are so obvious in all your posts.

    While I seem pessimistic at times, I am actually optimistic in terms of our being able to reclaim the country we know and love.

    Keep up the great work!

  • Lee – I was saddened that I could not meet you while I was there, but I know and respect your efforts to keep this movement going. Thanks for taking the time to comment today!!!!

  • Dug – there is another march being planned. I think we need to pick a reader to send the next time, who I would work with posting information. I cannot do 17 hours on planes and in airports again…the physical toll on me and the mental toll on my family was a *(^^&$&^^*()^%&! 😉

    As for pessimism – I know you believe what I believe – the overreaching is creating the 2nd American Revolution and now NY-23 is proving that the Tea Party Patriots are shifting the paradigm back to the founding principles. YOU are part of that!!!

  • NoTingles -

    Holy Cow…they did notice! Question is…did the message sink in? Judging from the letter I got today from Sen. Hagan’s office, the lies continue to be believed and promulgated, and the truth is sidelined concerning the health care legislation.
