It was a beautiful day for a Rolling Tea Party.......

Today in St. Louis the organization MyConservativeGroup put on a Rolling Tea Party, driving a 50 mile loop through South and West St. Louis County. It was a beautiful day for a lovely drive. Over 30 cars showed up, decorated and ready to go:





There were messages protesting too much spending and the poor healthcare bill:









It took about 30 minutes for us to get assembled and ready to go. Brian Bollmann armed with a megaphone and a great attitude got the crowd fired up.





Dave McArthur even came by and said a few words of encouragement before we took off. I have video of both of them speaking. It will be up a little later.


We even had one lone protester.



He wanted to debate kool-aid facts with the people, so I obliged him. Here are the highlights:



The Rolling Tea Party made the trek from South St. Louis County, heading north on Lindbergh Blvd, then West down Olive, East on Manchester Rd. and finally coming full circle back to Lindbergh Blvd. Stopping in the Home Depot parking lot where we had started. Throughout the entire trip we had folks honking and waving, it was really great to see so many. They knew the message. They knew why we were there.

The Rolling Tea Party was a great success. It was the first major event put on by MyConservativeGroup and it was fantastic! Those taking part were approached by strangers in parking lots where we pulled over for breaks along the route and most-if not all-were in total support. The folks are really starting to get it. Through the efforts of groups like MyConservativeGroup, St. Louis Tea Party, I Heard the People Say and countless others-all with their scores of hard working grassroots activists, we are getting the message out. People are taking notice. We are making a difference.
Before you go, be SURE to check out SpikeSTL's video montage. The work is excellent and AC/DC is my all-time favorite band so that just adds to the awesomeness :)

Keep up the good work you guys! We are making a difference.
