just a bunch of "fringe extremists"

Radical? Okay. Extreme? Maybe. Dangerous? You betcha -- never underestimate the power of a pregnant, homeschooling, stay-at-home mom who actually reads the Constitution.

But fringe? You're kidding me, right?

Okay, I know it's kind of rare for people nowadays to actually know what kind of government America actually is (no, surprise! It's not a democracy!). America is - ready? - a Constitutional Federated Republic. I know, those are big words. Mr. Obama should look them up. But I guess if you're smart enough not to believe everything you hear from CNN, the New York Times, or TOTUS, you're fringe.

So...yeah, that's me (on the left). And I'm okay with that.

But I'm not alone! There were over 2000 of us "fringe extremists" just in little ol' Wasilla! And we are a small town!

The view from (almost) the front row.

And, yeah...the kids got a little bored during some of it - but according to my oldest, it was way better than doing math.

Afterward, our group took over half of our favorite coffee shop, where the kids were rewarded with hot cocoa, and the moms got espresso (yes, mine was decaf. Be nice). The minute they put a sin tax on lattes, I'm soooo going postal.

Thanks for the encouraging post! What a fantastic turn-out! If the administration really does believe that freedom loving, Constitution-wielding folks like us are "fringe extremists", they must be terrified right now...LOL!

Latte tax? I think you've found the thing that will finally wake the American people from their TV comas! Rise up, people! :)
