(Sept. 12, 2009) — In the greatest, patriotic manifestation of our times more than 100,000 thousand American Citizens, from all walks of life, and each of the 50 states, are expected to march on the U.S. Capitol Building this morning, in what is acclaimed as the largest grass roots movement in modern U.S. history.

The Tea Party movement had its genesis CNBC reporter Santelli’s public criticism against Obama’s plan for wealth redistribution, followed by his call for a Tea Party protest, in Chicago.

His public excoriation of Obama’s un-American views of economics, touched a nerve in the American public, and ignited a grass roots movement, the like of which has never been seen in the United States. His original comments are now so popular, that they are retrieved with difficulty from CNBC’s website and Google’s cache, as the servers are overloading with requests.

Today, the day following the 8th Anniversary of 9/11 — which is also the 326th Anniversary of the defeat of Islamic Armies by the combined Christian forces of Europe, at the gates of Vienna — American Patriots gather in Washington, D.C., to defend their country from radical proposals aimed at undermining the American liberties ensured by the U.S. Constitution, and handed down to us by our Christian Forefathers; economic proposals to be forcibly imposed by Barack Hussein Obama and the Democratic supermajority in Congress.

The main events scheduled for the day are as follows, as listed on the 912dc.org website:

While aimed at the economic proposals of the current administration, the Tea Party Protest is also a principal venue for members of the “patriotic movement” or those who style themselves “Constitutionalists” to get out the word regarding Obama’s usurpation of the Presidency, and the DNC conspiracy to defraud the American Voters of a choice for a legitimate presidential candidate.

The current outrage against Obama’s health care proposals, also will figure in the protests of the day; as thousands are expected to echo U.S. Representative Joe Wilson’s (R – SC) rallying cry, “You Lie!” on placards and signs.

Today is a historic moment in the United State’s of America.  How it will affect the nation, and what response our representatives in D.C. will give it, remains uncertain.

What is certain is that America has reawakened to the importance of the essential liberties and requirements of the U.S. Constitution, and taken a bold stand against the foreign influence and radical marxist ideology to which the Democratic Party has chained itself, in nominating Obama as its presidential candidate in 2008.

Americans of all walks of life are beginning to realize that it is principally upon them, and not the major parties, that the security and liberty of the nation rests.

If this truth sprouts up in the hearts of all our fellow citizens, with God’s blessing, the future welfare of the nation will be secured.

But if we ignore this moment of national grace, the future of this great nation’s liberty and prosperity is in doubt.
