Hooray! Napa Tour Kickoff Was GREAT!
We've just finished our massive kickoff rally, and we have to say a big THANK YOU to Napa, California for an hosting the Tea Party Express "Super Rally!" We were thrilled to see a wonderful crowd of thousands join us to send the message it's time to Reclaim America!
After that great sendoff just up the road from Nancy Pelosi's district, we're heading straight into Harry Reid's home state of Nevada for big rallies in Reno and Elko! You see, we refuse to be intimidated by the attacks and insults from those on the far left who want us to go away. We're hitting the road with everything we've got to send the message that We the People are stronger than "we the politicians!"
*Here are some pictures from the Napa "Super Rally" this morning!*

After such a great kickoff, we're more excited than ever to be back on the road fighting for fiscal responsibility and economic prosperity for all! We are expecting to see tens of thousands more patriots over the coming days as we travel across the country. Please take a moment to see our full schedule and find the next rally nearest you!
Bullies like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid don't like to see the tea party movement growing stronger - that's why it's more important than ever to show them we're not going away, and we won't be stopped! We need to make this tour a huge success in order to prove them WRONG
Great weather, and a good crowd of Patriots agreeing on the need to stop this great country from continuing down the path being foisted on us by the current administration and the beltway insider politicians!
And the rest of youse, good to see you again!
It was a fantastic Tea Party, the Napa tea party puts on some great events.
Shoot, I met another FR guy today, but forgot his handle. I think the last part was Gilcrest.
They will be in Roanoke on Sept. 8th
Is there a schedule and map of their planned stops? Where will they be on Sept. 3rd?
Not THAT Gilcrest!!
Thanks for the link, post. WOOOOHOOOO on route for Milford, Michigan! (practically in my backyard...a couple of miles away)
HOORAY Tea Party! See you in Milford. BTTT!
Wished I could have been there with y’all, but had to ride through the outer fringes of Irene. Heard about the uncivil union protesters, found and posted some video.
The Napa event was fantastic!
Congratulations, and thanks.
It was great seeing my FReeper FRiends: you, AmericanPreservative, and the Robinsons.
Be safe out there on the road and say “Hi” from me to all of the patriots you meet along the way.
Did you hear about the giant inflated rat the commies had?
I’m still scratching my head over that one!
Heh heh alright cool!
I ws searching for WHG etc dunno why, grate to meet you!
Rogue, see the pic of the rat dressed like a democrat below
Here's a report from a freedom works person that is riding along with us and taking pics and reporting, Tabitha Hale:
Day One: With TPX in Napa and Reno!By Tabitha Hale on August 28, 2011
The counter protesters were strong, but they stayed on the other side of the fence. They didn't stay long, either - they seemed to give up pretty quickly. They put all sorts of effort in, even blowing up a 15 ft. rat. Yes, a RAT. I wouldn't lie to you.
Tony Katz had a great take on this over on the Tatler.The majority of the Tea Party crowd was still partying at 1:20pm. The event officially ended at 1pm. Who has the staying power? Its one hell of a metaphor.
Once we took off from there, we got to Sparks, Nevada - just outside of Reno. It was a beautiful little town, and despite the fact that we got stuck in traffic and showed up late there was a nice crowd that toughed in out in the heat.
Tomorrow morning we will be in Elko, then we've got a long haul for a Fireside event in Salt Lake City.
Great Stratman, want to link to your report or the videos?
Gotta run, heading to Elko see ya all later!
Here ya go:
Y’all have a good one in Elko!
Thanks for the update!
Yup. That’s him.
I’d know that rat anywhere.
