"You want socialism? Go to Russia!"—Susan Clark, protestorUp to two million people marched to the U.S. Capitol Saturday, carrying signs with slogans such as "Obamacare makes me sick" as they protested the president's health care plan and what they say is out-of-control spending.
The line of protesters spread across Pennsylvania Avenue for blocks, all the way to the capitol, according to the Washington Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency.
People were chanting "enough, enough" and "We the People." Others yelled "You lie, you lie!" in reference to Rep. Joe Wilson and "Pelosi has to go," referring to California congresswoman Nancy Pelosi.—Mail Foreign Service
It was originally reported in the Daily Mail two days ago that up to two million people marched on the U.S. Capitol and then without explanation the Daily Mail adjusted the number down to 1 million.
It is unclear whether the change in the estimate is the Daily Mail succumbing to political pressures because they were being used to reference that fact that upwards of 2 million people were in attendance in Washington.
What is suspicious is the Daily Mail made no mention why the number was changed. and adjusted down. (see story)
Other sources did record the Daily Mail's original report. (see here and here)
2 million people are a significant number because if that number stands it would be larger than other significant Marches on Washington: It would be larger than; the October 16, 1995 1 Million Man March with a reported 400,000 people. It would be bigger than the October 12, 1996 Illegal Aliens Rights March - First national march in D.C. for equal rights for Illegals. With a reported 500,000 people. With their slogan, “Today We March, Tomorrow We Vote” (see source) (That? You thought the election of Obama legitimate?)
And it would be bigger than the April 30, 2000 homosexual Millennium March on Washington controversial LBGT political rally with a reported 200,000 to 1 million people.
Marchers overran Washington Saturday to protest big government, out of control government spending and the irresponsible way that Democrats have used the full power of the presidency plus control of both houses of Congress to impose an ultra- partisan agenda on the American people
The American people come out in full force. to protest tax policies, along with growing resentment over the economic stimulus packages and bank bailouts.
Obama media and the White House attempted to completely ignore that a significant number of the American people are not happy with the Barry Soetoro administration and the direction which it is taking America.
The Barry Soetoro administration ignores the American people at its own peril. Barry has all but lost the support that put him in office. The far left alone will not be enough to sustain his radical plans to fundamentally change America.
2010 promises to be an explosive political charged year. If the political activity of Conservatives in the march on Washington is any indication, the fundamental change that was promised will be a fundamental change in the Congress in 2010 and then more of the same in 2012 in the Senate and then change in the White House in 2012 too!
