( 9-12 Tea Party Protest outside the U.S. Capital [2009])

"I believe in the United States of America, as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies."

- William Tyler Page, The American's Creed

    The uploaded resolution is just a bit too small for me to determine if this was a Tea Party or what. Could you share the events reason/date?

    Love the shot.

    Voted for Theme! Terrific shot. I thought that it was 9/12 but wasn't there. The Atlanta event was very successful as well. I have hundreds of photos on my website.

    Hi Aaron. I just visited this photo series on Flickr. Great images - wish I could have made it there. Isn't it amazing what the main stream media completely freaking missed???!!!!

    It was shocking how little coverage there was! I saw two local news vans and then CNN and FOX. CNN had one anchor that I know of who broadcast for about two minutes. The clip I saw on FOX was only a few minutes as well. The protest was amazing though. I've never encountered a group of protesters that were as civil or as good spirited as the D.C. Tea Partiers. It was a wonderful example of citizens exercising their first amendment rights. In a sense it's disappointing but rather poetic that it's left up to the citizens to document it.
