Three of us from Fairfax County will be attending.
It's inspiring to see all the out-of-towners making the effort!

"We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing. With some the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labor; while with others, the same word many mean for some men to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men's labor. Here are two, not only different, but incompatible things, called by the same name - liberty. And it follows that each of the things is, by the respective parties, called by two different and incompatible names - liberty and tyranny." Abraham Lincoln

Everyone get your signs ready!!! Make sure we have conservative quotes from our forefathers and former presidents that believed in America's greatness on these signs!

Some examples below:

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.
–Thomas Jefferson

"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, That we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the Survival and success of liberty."
-John F. Kennedy

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!"
-Benjamin Franklin

Our obligations to our country never cease but with our lives.
-John Adams

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

Better late than never for Americans to stand up for their sovereign individual right to manage our own life with minimal governmental interference. Obama and Congress are neither bright enough nor knowledgeable enough of my life to run it for me. They are clearly suffering from megalomania. From the promotion of income class warfare to the global warming farce, to the financial, housing, and car industry bailouts, to union card check coercion, to the politics of favored and disfavored identity groups, to stopping drilling, to promoting socialist foreign leaders while tolerating violent mullahs, and to the planned take-over of the health care industry, the change being delivered is wrongheaded. It is very consistent in expanding the power of government at the expense of the private sector and the individual, however.

I'm coming from Redmond Washington.. we need to stand up and join together now before it is too late!

The easiest way to get to the Upper Senate Park is Union Station.

Walk toward the Capitol and you'll see the Senate Reflecting Pool (What an oxymoron) and walk up the stairs next to the Fountain to Upper Senate Park..

Hurray for freedom and let's keep it as we know it! Scary times for American right now...so glad that there are like-minded people willing to show their concern for all of our rights! Looking forward to seeing you on the 4th!

Metro stops:
3 blocks S. of Union Station; 6 blocks N. of Capitol South
The park is at the corner of Constitution Ave. and Delaware Ave.
Lots of trees for shade. A couple of blocks to the Dubliner for refreshments.
