We The People

Well, I went to the Glenn Beck rally in Washington, D.C. My wife is a huge fan and forced me to go. Glenn Beck is OK, but there is a fair amount of showmanship used in promoting his very valid message. I loved Sarah Palin, Alveda King, and the brave but mangled soldiers who appeared on stage.

So, what did I get out of the event? Mostly, how many middle class people are PISSED. Those there were physicians, optometrists, nurses, professors, college educated, intelligent and full of common sense. They were polite, clean, articulate, respectful and PISSED. They came from California, Florida, Texas, New Hampshire, Arkansas and, I suspect from every state in the continental U.S. If I were a liberal and thought I was smarter and knew better than that crowd what was good for America, I should be scared. These people are not the people who will tear them limb from limb or tar and feather them. They will do something far, far worse. The people at the Glenn Beck rally will work night and day to take away the elitist's power. They will lose their status as an aristocracy and the influential. They will be without power and fame. For that type of person, it is a fate worse than any other. Doubt not that most elites will face this fate, regardless of political party or position. As the Japanese admiral said after Pearl Harbor. "We have awoken a sleeping giant."

How many people were there? The crowd filled the mall proper from the Lincoln Memorial to the World War Two Memorial. I was in that area and we were shoulder to shoulder. The crowd extended well into the fields beyond the mall. Areas where they could not see and barely hear what was going on. The crowd also extended more loosely to the Washington Monument, many straggling-in late because the crowd overwhelmed the local transportation system. For perspective, the mall is 1.2 miles long. If 500,000 people will take days out of their lives, spend hundreds of dollars in travel expenses, walk miles, stand in the hot sun to listen to 3 hours of hope, what does that say about the mindset of the American People. God Bless America.
