    I don't get why they would do it. I don't think this is true either.

    Is this going to be like the April 15 tax protests? If so, then I understand. I was thinking "strike". Having a strike is stupid, IMO, but a protest day, sure.

    It seems painfully obvious to me that when primary voting is less than a month away in most states, having a national anti-Obama protest movement is missing the boat. Shouldn't they be drumming up support for more conservative replacements for the traditional, or overly incumbent, usual faces on the ballot? Obama isn't up for election for 3 more years, come on, focus on something that matters! Like the election that is less than 30 days away! Fuck me to tears! I thought the Tea Party Patriots were supposed to be the people with their heads out of their asses.

    I don't think I understand exactly what you're saying, but if it is going to be a protest rally day, great! Calling it a strike on the other hand sounds really stupid. You strike when you aren't getting the crap you want, you protest when they are giving you crap you don't want. We are in the latter situation.

    I don't think having a protest to send a message is as powerful as voting the bastards out in the primary. The protests did work last year and stalled legislation for a long time, but didn't stop its passage. Just because it was slightly successful then doesn't mean that it ever will be again. It's time to transition to the next step, an organized Tea Party which gets involved in primaries. If they got one fifth the number of their supporters to vote for a different candidate in the primary every seat could be turned over. They could dictate who would be in which office. But they aren't going to because it seems they've already become a bunch of jerk off Republicans like they were before April 15, 2009 who like to bitch but won't put their feet where their mouths are and walk down to the primary and vote for a different, less tax and spend asshole, smaller government conservative in the primary.

    I have no idea where got the idea this was a strike Eagle. its not even close to that. and I never gave that impression. this is their way of having their voice heard. politicans are deaf. did you see the townhall protests last year??? those were tea baggers and ordinary citizen venting their rage at democrats sent out to sell the HC bill.
