I’m sure the marchers for civil rights wondered if their efforts were for naught - now we know what their activism accomplished. See you at the Mall on Saturday!  Peace!

unfortunatly the globalist agenda WHICH IS THE PLAYBOOK OF THE BUSH FAMILY will be dominate at the rally….

ceding EVEN MORE US SOVERIEGNTY to the United Nations and its destruction of US Independence…will be the Mantra of the day…

why can’t the progressives see THEY are being used…just like the dumb Republican “patriots” by the BIPARTISAN elite in furthering the destruction of the soveriegnty and independence of our country????? two rigged and controlled sides of the globalist coin…..

Why not vote out the REPRESENTATIVES who pushed across and voted for the PATRIOT Act/AUMF/and financing of the unConstitutional BIPARTISAN imperialism and militarization????

Remove the parrots and sycophant “leaders” who go along to get along…and further destroy the real opposition to the march to fascism and globalism…from the real Right…the “isolationists” who WARNED all of this country what W and his boys are doing and what will happen…and the morally and LITERALLY bankrupting of American society….

the globalists “solutions” dont just stop at “bringing the troops home”...they want them to go ELSEWHERE for OTHER “missions”/issues…ones that are more “progressive”...usually revolving around crushing laws to promote equality and the redistribution of OTHERS wealth to help the governments of the world feed their people…

keep the troops when they come home where????????? guarding the border?? patrolling inner cities??? security at airports???

the media will have a field day with the protest.. running with the ball for both sides…at the expense of truth…and the wasted time of those who are misguided enough to protest and march and think thier efforts will help matter…

It will take at least a million or more people out there for these criminals to even take notice and I hope it happens.
