Our first stop of the day was in Paducah, KY where we met some warm-hearted patriots who dearly love our country. It was a pleasure to be among them!
I found this article about the Tea Party movement that you might like to read… It kinda goes along with the mission and outcome of the revolution sweeping our nation. Be sure to visit ThirdWaveDave’s site for more details about the tour dates and locations.

The hostility and jaded news coverage that the Tea Party movement evokes suggests that it must be onto something really big — beyond anti-incumbent attitudes or current-issue debates of Democrats or Republicans.
The Tea Party is animated by powerful enduring ideas expressed in the nation’s founding through the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution: freedom, the natural law of inalienable rights and the sovereignty of the people that requires limited government.
Remarkably, the Tea Party movement has gained national prominence with unpaid volunteers in just a year and a half. Its people come from every walk of life from all over the country.
What has brought them together is an acute awareness that Washington has been tone-deaf to the voices of the people. They’ve had it with the posturing of both Democrats and Republicans. Through the Tea Party, the silent majority now has a giant megaphone.
The Tea Party movement provides a fresh and unvarnished combination of candor, authenticity and idealism. In the age of YouTube, politicians are having difficulty in managing their image or their audience through a largely supplicant news media.
