    Oh well....maybe the next time.
    Lowball figures are 60K, for the one city.

    Compare that to the common attendance of war/anti-Bush protests.

    Or, just continue seeing what you want to see.

    If you read the teabagger and wingnut terminology I used I got the point across anyway.

    Well I hope people are opening their eyes to what the government has been doing for the past like 3 Presidents now. But the press is doing all it can to sweep this under the rug, and FOX news is way too annoying/stupid to listen to and it's probably the only one giving consideration to this issue. Maybe we'll wake up and retake the Republic, I hope people start to understand what sort of one party politics we've been under for awhile now and move to correct it.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    That you are no moderate and hold liberty minded Americans in contempt?


    Yeah, I got that point.

    This was billed as a much larger event...not exactly a small city anti-war march.

    This was supposed to be the teabaggers "million man march". Turned out not to be such a big event.

    Appeals to popularity don't mean a thing.

    I think a lot of people would protest both - fascist policies abroad and fascist policies at home (i.e. government ownership of your body).

    Ahhh.....the conservative estimate for the Million Man March was 400K. Other estimates put the figure at over a million.

    I don't know how you think 60k numbers surpass 400k-1 million+

    This shows that Americans are unhappy, and that the news is politically motivated in one form or another.
    Now in the next election if they can be moved away from voting for dem or rep,and into some other political camp in large numbers maybe we the people can make a difference.

    They didn't surpass any of those. Nor did it surpass a pro-choice march in 2004. Doesn't mean it wasn't an impressive turnout, but lying about attendance diminishes the numbers that did turn out.

    Moderates are generally turned off by fringers of all extremes.
