    An estimated 1 million Americans participated in at least 1,000 tea parties, according to reports by organizers tabulating the nationwide numbers, with documented protests held in 50 states.

    Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform told WND, "The Obama administration has awakened a sleeping giant."

    Tax Day Tea Party national event coordinator Amy Kremer told WND she has confirmed that more than 850 parties took place. She has at least 100 more reports in her e-mail inbox that have not been posted.

    Asked how many people attended the events, she responded, "I would estimate it at over 1 million. I'm waiting on more numbers to come in from organizers right now. I can tell you it is absolutely over 750,000 right now."

    That is good for the right. That is a lot bigger turn out than reported. I believe it will really make a difference to the left if they get this kind of turnout going into the next elections.

    The next election will change exactly what? The names of your tax collectors? What else changed this past election?

    An ineffective president, woeful economic conditions, unstable international situation, and the emasculation of the US military made a huge difference in the 1980 election.

    The question is...will there be a viable alternative to the left's candidate?

    So did Kieth Olbermoron. Lots of people did. But I think America, as a a collective, is kinda stupid.

    I think you hit the nail on the head. The deficit ran up in the last administration. And as for abortion, for 6 years the Republican's had both the congress and WH and abortion is still legal. At least the Democrats are honest about leaving it legal.

    Most people on this board...myself included...repeatedly make the point that conservative and Republican are not synonymous.
