The events were amazing. The local news coverage was more than anyone could ever ask for. The passion and determination of the organizers of the various tea parties across the state leaves me speechless. They deserve to be praised today.
Thousands of Iowans gathered around the state yesterday, not to hear from some big name speaker or politician, but to say enough is enough. I’ve never seen anything like this in my lifetime. People from all walks of life showed up. Sure there were party activists, but there were also people who have never been involved in something like this before. It was amazing.
Now, I realize that there were not partisan events, but the Democrats who control all the branches of government in Iowa and in Washington D.C. were put on notice yesterday. For years the people may have quietly complained about this or that, but they never took their frustration and did anything with it before, but now they are.
If you helped organize one of these events, or took the time out of your schedule to attend one, you deserve a standing ovation. For anyone who thinks that the people will continue to sit silently while a handful of people push us closer and closer to socialism, you are wrong. Yesterday proved that the people have finally had enough and are ready to fight back.
Below is a video I made that with some of the photos I took in Des Moines yesterday.
