The VDA Declaration Rally is/was a success and no amount of complaining from critics who didn't attend will not change that fact! This event was not a tea party pep rally/show! That is why it didn't look like or work out to be one. We never intended on it being a party/show!
You need to enlist the support of a Glenn Beck personality to get the numbers. Don't be discouraged! It's nearly impossible for people to drop what they're doing to protest. We are NOT the 99%ers who have trust funds to fall back on! Our absence doesn't indicate any lack of desire. It only signals our inability to fund the trip. Perhaps a nation wide protest would be a better venue, not altogether different from OWS gatherings, just on our terms. No occupation, just wholesome messages from real Americans!
As Mike Tyson said awhile back, "Everyone has a plan tell they get hit!"
Probably the most profound words to ever come from Mike's mouth.
If you are talking about his 8-28 rally, there were only about 650,000.
9-12-2009 had about 2,000,000 and Beck wasn't even there.
Are you talking about the 9-12 rally or the 8-28 rally? Becks pictures of 8-28 showed (in comparison to the MLK rally, which was 500,000) about 650,000.
I was there on 9-12 and we covered the 1st section that BO had 465,000 chairs in, wider than the chair section. But we didn't extend as far back as BO had chairs. Estimate at 10:30, by the Park Police was 1,500,000. BO had 1,800,000 in chairs. And Beck was in New York.
It is NOT impossible, you just have to want it bad enough. We just made an international move and lost half our income because I don't have job anymore. Was it hard, you betcha, I HAD to go and we found a way. We don't need Beck or anyone else, WHAT we DO NEED is for all patriots to stand, we all need to come together on what we do agree on and later we can figure out the other 10%. What will be YOUR excuse when they come knocking on your door in the middle of the night??? Good lord, did we learn nothing from history?What is the saying? All it takes for evil to enter is for all good men to do nothing (or something like that). Will you or anyone else I've heard complain/excuse why they weren't there, will you stand when they come knocking, will you have the time or money then??? I'm sorry if I come across as rough but I'm not sure everyone is awake that says they are. When is the time to stand? Tomorrow, next week, next month, next year????? If your waiting for the elections you are still sleeping, they will solve nothing.
This Patriot Pastor preached to Hospitalized Veterans, and the Restoration Rally was mentioned in our prayers. We had two Services, both well intended. I am sure most would have liked to be in Washington, D.C.!
I didn't get to go Miss Twana, but we were praying for ya'll. Keep up the good work. we would have been there if we could have gotten out of the house.
Go with Gods blessings

Going to the rally was NOT something that I wanted to do! I would rather have peace and prosperity in this country without obama present, this we do not have, so as a citizen of the finest country this world has ever known,I HAD to go!
Why did I go, why did I donate money, why am I disgruntled? Because too many people,not real patriotic citizens, voted for a foreign,marxist, muslim that hates America and most people and whites in particular just to prove to themselves that they were not a racist,THAT is why I went.
When, and it better be soon, the military shows up at the Capital building with over a hundred thousand strong with indictments in hand for everyone that deserves one and are escorted to a sight of incarceration.
This would include the Supreme Court and all of this administration, I will breath a sigh of relief but NOT rest till those that are responsible for this debacle are convicted and dealt with as only treasonous people can be.
Am I mad? That is putting it mildly, my father was in the Philippines(127th Inf) my father-in-law had one ship that sank under him(USS Gregory) another hit by a Kamikaze(USS Cassin Young) If I did any less it would be an insult to these fine men that are no longer here to continue the fight.
My war was Vietnam(173rd ABN) I am still in disbelief of what our government did after losing 58,000+ lives.
In my opinion those that served and are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan will feel the same, our government will cut and run, the troops want to win, politician are not held responsible for the lives that THEY have lost!
It seems as though our politician have little reluctance to start a war, but they have no idea how to win one and will not get out of the way and let the military win the damn thing, then they can take credit for the win.
A politician never takes credit for a loss!
Can all of congress NOT see that the American people want this illegal alien gone from our shores, who is it that covers this mans past personal history and WHY?
What hold does this man have on our government to make them cow tow as they do?
If any of the current politician are breathing......free air in two years we as a country may be a lost cause.
SOME ONE MUST PAY for obama, besides obama!
I am not talking about one year probation and a pension either.
If I were allowed, there would be no measure as to how fast I would bring the fight to obama's front door.
ONE LAST thought, DO NOT rely on the Joint Chiefs of Staff, they are political hacks and appointees.
Yes Arnie, I am PO'ed.
John, having read several of your posts... I just have one minor observation. There are plenty of Oak Trees in and around the DC area some of them very mejestic and God knows there are plenty of nuts around there too and up in them branches there are nuts hanging... . It is time or real close to the time for them lower level branches to be utilized. I am sure you caught my drift. Bob
I think I get the jest of your message.
It is getting that time of year to decorate the trees, isn't it?
A great man once said "We cannot dedicate,we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow, this ground." If I can para phrase the next sentence some what,The brave men, living (civilians) and DEAD (politicians) hanging in the trees as a reminder to the next ones that want to change our way of life!
"That this nation,under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from this earth"
Isn't if funny how so many of the greatest real American speeches still fit our agenda?
I in NO way meant this as an endictment of your writing or paricipation of the rally.
I am very thankful for ladies and people like you that made this rally what it was.
You did put me on to the ride that got me to DC.
As for me, give me Liberty or give me death, but let my grand children have FREEDOM.
We are responsible for this mess NOT them.
I get very emotional at times.
Twana, I am sorry that you had to deal with the rotten apple in the patriot barrel; however, you are in exalted company. George Washington had to contend with some of those types, and fight a war as well.
You all did well in DC and I am proud to know you and be even loosely associated.
Many of us could not come to DC this time mostly due to finances. Many are out of work and those that are retired may have to help some family members who have no income due to the economy.
