In August of 2010, Glenn Beck held his Restoring Honor Rally in Washington, DC. A firm hired by CBS News estimated the crowd at between 78,000 and 96,000. There were no arrests, not one scrap of paper was left for the Park Service to clean. No one left human waste, there were no rapes, drug use or the need for the police to pepper spray attendees.
Say what you will about the rally, about the Tea Party or Christians, this is the America I love, the country where decent, hard working people are responsible for their own successes or failures. WHile the Occupy Wall Street protesters have some valid concerns, some which many people share, they are costing cities a fortune in clean-up, along with the escalating cost of added law-enforcement.
Take the fight to the ballot box, get involved on a local level to make changes. Know what you believe and pursue your vision in a law-abiding, respectable way.
Again, there will be many different opinions about this movement. This is just mine as all of us can still exercise the freedom to speak our minds – at least for now.
