Last Tuesday was a beautiful day----perfect day for a rally. Before rally time, there were some opposing ralliers including a bus of SEIU "paid volunteers". They weren't very active then loaded up at lunchtime (union break) and never came back. Gratefully, the Occupy were not visible.
The real rally moved across the street at 1:00pm to a lawn complete with press boxes and a stage with great sound. I was praying for at least a couple thousand people and I am happy to report at lease 7-8 thousand. We got the attention of the legislative body with speeches from Bachmann, DeMint, King, Rand Paul, West, a Canadian with socialized medicine and AFP leadership.
