road to repeal rally

For the past three days I’ve been in Washington D.C. attending the Road to Repeal events.  We are protesting Obamacare and showing solidarity on the steps of the Supreme Court while the judges rule whether or not Obamacare is unconstitutional.

Despite the rain on the first day, many thousands of people attended the Tea Party Patriot’s Road to Repeal rally across from the Capitol building.

Speakers included Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, Sonnie Johnson, director Stephen Bannon, Dr. Gina Loudon and many others, but the crowd favorite was Herman Cain.

Cain talked about the unconstitutionality of Obamacare and also his upcoming ‘Cain Solutions Revolution’ tour.  I got one of the only interviews with Mr. Cain so stay tuned for that!

At the end of the rally, Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert led the entire crowd on a walk down the street to the steps of the Supreme Court.  People cheered, yelled ‘Kill the Bill’ and took lots of pictures.

Nope, there were no sexual assaults; no one stole anything, no one trash was left behind–just great Americans peacefully protesting.

Today I briefly returned to the Supreme Court where large groups of people gathered to either protest or praise Obamacare.  Word was that the Unions paid for large groups of Obamacare cheerleaders.  Major kudos to young filmmaker Matthew Perdie for shouting down and directly debating groups of liberals; at one point Perdie held up a picture of Andrew Breitbart and said, “I’m doing what Breitbart would have done!”

And of course, Breitbart’s legacy has been a central theme throughout the past few days.  During Saturday’s rally while John David Kahn was passionately singing his song “American Heart” a giant poster of Andrew was raised and the sun briefly came out.

Who knows.

Overall, this has been a beautiful experience.  To see so many like-minded people gather for a common goal—to restore our country and eliminate all traces of socialism—is the very meaning of ‘patriotism’.

Tomorrow we’ll be back on the steps of the Supreme Court waiting for a ruling and conducting interviews.  A decision probably won’t be reached while I’m here in D.C. but in the meantime I’m here, happy to be in the thick of things.
