There's A Brewing Tea Party

I drove out to Harrisburg today to witness one of these growing Rick Santelli inspired Chicago Tea Parties for myself.

And guess what I found?

Conservatives don't tend to be protesters so much as those to our political left, but when we get fired-up about an issue we rally with the best.

I also got an opportunity to meet Nathan Benefield and Matt Brouillette of Commonwealth Foundation, as well as Chris Lilik from Grassroots PA. All of them were as impressed with the turnout as I was.

It's only been a few weeks, but this kettle is starting to stir. April 15th seems to be the day everyone is targeting for the next BIG rally. I'm thinking Valley Forge.
