SEACHLIGHT TEA PARTY

Saturday morning, the wife and I drove the 45 miles to the Searchlight "Tea Party" rally. It was phenomenal!! Cars lined up as far as the eye could see. Stop and go traffic for an hour and fifteen minutes in the middle of desert no-where. After parking, loading up (I was the pack mule) we walked a short mile past a long line of cars and onto the grounds. Weather was great, cool with a small breeze, and always sunny. Sky writers with important messages. There were young & old, black & brown, white & gray, and able bodied & disabled Americans. Younger generations pushing the wheelchairs of grandma and grandpa, older generations pushing the baby strollers, and EVERYONE with one message…LOVE. Love for this country and how to get it back on track. We saw patriots from California, Arizona, Oregon, Alaska, Utah, New Mexico and the great state of Nevada of course!
My conservative estimate was 10 to 12 thousand. The governor of Nevada received a laugh when he said, “I would like to thank all 250 of you for attending.” Everywhere I looked there were people helping people, talking about issues, the constitution, thanking veterans for their service, and good down-to-earth red blooded Americans celebrating Liberty. Not a damn thing un-American!
Thunderous applause greeted Sarah Palin.

  1. You are a great American. How does it feel to be part of history? You have done a great job capturing it for us. Get the word out that you have these great pictures of this great event. It was what the hippies wanted but couldn't do back in the 60's. You didn't take the brown acid did ya? That's a Woodstock joke. If you could let the readers on my blog know your address. They need to see how awesome this event was. The media didn't show this that is for sure.

  3. I attended one in NY last week as well.
    It was very inspiring to say the least.
    And I didn't spit on anyone.

  4. Just doing a little blog surfing and found you. I attended the 8/28 rally in Washington DC. Of course, I suppose you already know there were only 1000 in attendance there. Guess we beat the Searchlight Rally by a few hundred:)
    Keep up the fight. It is going to take all we have to win this battle. Bad enough we are having to fight our own government while we are in the middle of a battle with the Muslims too.
