The local July 4th TEA Party drew about 300 participants at one particular event in rural Washington State.
CNN covered the event in Washington DC. CNN estimates only 2000 showed up for the protest. Somehow I think they estimate low.
The Democratic Party is in control of the country, the economy collapses under regulatory and tax burdens, and the Dems seek to increase the Federal burden of regulation and taxation. Either Democratic Party people are really stupid or they hope everyone else is.
