It was the first time I visited the State Capitol. I was blown away by the amount of people that showed up. There were reports of 7,500+. There were a lot of great signs and several people even dressed up in period clothing.
Of course, I contributed with my own sign.
It is not a tea party without tea . . .
From my observation, despite all the media reports, there was a mix of people rich/poor, black/white, Republican/Democrat . . . and a lesson learned to not judge a book by its cover. I would have guessed this guy would be someone that would protest the protest but I was wrong.
The whole experience was pretty neat. At the end of the day, despite what you believe, America is a great country and we are all lucky to live here.
USA! USA! USA!
