I, who was there, would like to tell you what I saw and felt at the Washington Tea Party.
1. There were many more than the 10's of thousand as the media says. It was like being in an ocean of people. Everywhere where I looked was people (360 degrees).
2. Unlike what the president and the media says, we weren't violent and an angry mob. No arrests were made, and we cleaned up our trash and put our signs in cans.
3. We paid our own way and even tipped the bus driver who only got $40.
We spent 20 hours on a crowded bumpy bus, trying to sleep. We walked all day, holding our signs till our arms hurt and our knees were ready to buckle, no clothes change or no cleaning up, eating what we had in our pockets, and even missing the Ohio State game. It was one for all and all for one. Nothing negative about anything. And safety was no problem.
I went because I must and so did everybody else. I'll go again.
