There was lots of color and patriotism and great music and inspiring speeches, ending with a fantastic call to action by Sheryl Bohlander.

It was so much fun seeing many old friends and meeting some new ones. And the best part was knowing we are all struggling for a common cause -- saving our country from encroaching socialism and committing ourselves to our core conservative principles: smaller government, less taxes, the free market system, national security, and personal responsibility.

Yes, Patriots Are on the March -- and we have a full schedule ahead of us from now until the important elections in November. Thursday was just the beginning ...

Thanks for sharing. Sounds like you had a great turnout. There are so many things I could say about the protestors but I'll just sit here quietly and enjoy my afternoon.
