I had a great day at the Save the American Dream Summit today. I attended some internet activism classes, went to a rally/tea party down on the Capitol. We also went and spoke with Eric Cantor's office. He is from Virginia so he had a staff member come and meet with us. It was interesting, because I don't think his staff member expected the anger.
This is one of the things that the republicans don't get. We are not going to vote for them simply because they are republicans. They need to get back to their conservative ideals and principles. I told him that I will vote for democrat if he/she is a fiscally conservative. I don't care about party. The look on his face was total shock. It was fun!!
Laura Ingraham was one of the key note speakers. She gave a good speech. She had the chance to sit in for Bill O'Reilly tonight. She was a little bummed that she didn't have the opportunity to talk about Michelle and Oprah crying their way back to America after the shock of not only losing to Rio, but being knocked out in the first round. I happened to be in an internet activism training class when the news came out. The entire room stood up and cheered.
Laura also gave kudos to us all. The bloggers and the people that have showed up at the town halls and tea parties. We are driving the legislation agenda. Even if the democrats don't want to admit it.
A very good day/evening. I did forget my camera this morning.
I will fill you in more tomorrow at the rest of the events over the weekend.
