Can someone explain to me why there aren’t a million AMERICANS marching camped out at the Capitol and White House getting in the faces of the DC destroyers? This story should be on the front page of every newspaper, website

While the wrecking crew continues to run our country into the ground you do know there is a bunch of them who have been silent for quite sometime working on ILLEGAL ALIEN AMNESTY! The fact this rally is going forward with approx 30 elected traitors showing up should be as much of a concern as the stories on 0bamascare!

Look at it this way, whomever set this rally up got the permit for people to show up… soooo maybe some PATRIOTS should show up too!?

“Under the same First Amendment rights that are allowing Honor Flight veterans and their families to visit the veterans memorials on the National Mall, other groups will be granted access to the park for First Amendment activities in accordance with National Park Service established regulations,” he added in an email...more
