    Citing quotes from various sources, Republicans today have introduced a measure declaring that Saturday's Tea Party protest in Washington, D. C., was the largest event ever hosted in the United States.

    Evidence to support their claim is easily found on the internet and was presented before the official vote on the resolution.

    "experienced one of the biggest demonstrations in history, when, according to the organizers, more than three million people flooded the streets of the historical city on Saturday"

    "About 10 million pilgrims have gathered"

    "It is a record...We believe it is the largest event held in Washington, D. C., ever."

    "It continues to expand and is now the largest single object in the solar system"

    well it was very big for conservatives. for too long conservatives have been silent and sometimes apathetic that's what the demoncwats count on apathy.. I think they are awake and caring now.. oh hell yes.

    The reason tea parties are enjoying success, over half the country agrees with the parties core principles; deficit control and smaller government.

    Dont forget to remind them what those core principles are ;).

    We want smaller not bigger government
    We want economic responsibility from our democrats and republicans, no more gigantic deficit spending
    We want lower taxes for ALL Americans, from poor to rich
    And we want to vote out all the corrupt democrats and republicans from office, which means kicking every single senator and congressperson out of office in 2010 from either side and replacing them with new Democrats and Republicans.
