    LAS VEGAS -- Fewer taxes, less government and no "Obamacare."

    That's the message thousands of conservative Tea Party activists were hoping to send to Washington as they streamed into Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's hometown in Nevada Saturday morning.

    "Harry Reid is symbolic of the problems in Washington in the sense that he's been the leader in the Senate of all the things we've been against -- expanding the government, increasing the deficit, and raising taxes," Sal Russo, chief strategist of the Tea Party Express, told FoxNews.com.

    "He campaigned as a moderate but has moved so far to the left," Russo said of Reid. "Voters are tolerate of different views, but what they don't like is when someone campaigns one way and then governs by another."

    The Tea Party Express, one of the most visible factions of the national Tea Party Movement, officially kicked off its cross-country, 42-city bus tour with Saturday's rally.

    Activists brought American flags, "Don't Tread on Me" signs and outspoken anger toward President Obama and his health care overhaul.

    The activists' star, Sarah Palin, spoke to the rally Saturday from a makeshift stage in a patch of dusty desert about 60 miles north of Las Vegas.

    Palin told them the big-government, big-debt spending spree of the Senate majority leader, Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is over.

    "You're fired!" Palin said.

    Organizers predict as many as 10,000 people could come to tiny Searchlight, the hardscrabble former mining town where the Senate Democratic leader grew up and owns a home. By midmorning, cars and recreational vehicles filled the area as people set up lawn chairs and braced against a stiff wind whipping up dust clouds and blowing dozens of flags straight out.

    "We're not going to sit down and shut up. Thank you for standing up," Palin told the Tea Party rally.

    Apparently the democrat operatives who have stated over the last week that the Tea Partiers will just go home with their tails tucked between their legs since the passage of government take-over of 6% of this economy--were mistaken-:lol::lol::lol:

    The tea party is growing in numbers and they most certainly will grow more when Verizon employee's get their mail that their health care premiums are going up, when AT+T tells their retiree's no more prescription drug benefits, that they will have to go to medicare to get it. It only gets worse from here.

    Corporations and business take a very long view of things, they plan now for the up-coming years. Obama thought he would look good after signing this monstrocity and mistakenly thought none of the bad stuff would show up until after his second term was in place. AT+T, Verizon, John Deare, Catapillar, just to name a few are gearing up for this bill and it ain't a lookin pretty for the Obama debunkle or the congressional and senate idiots that went along with his plan. LOLOLOLOLOL

    More and more to come on this front, with the killing of the stock market with reduced earnings, more lay-offs to follow, reduced benefit packages, boy oh boy I can hardly wait for the news. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

    Fox reported about 7000 people. I'll bet that little bar/resturant /casino owner was a very happy camper. I almost drove over but thought better of it. It's 280 miles of high wind and heat. Changed my mind.
