Rick Darby, who attended the demonstration in Washington yesterday and wrote it up at Reflecting Light, concludes with this:
[N]owhere else on earth could such a gathering happen. Sure, not a day goes by when people aren’t waving signs and shouting somewhere in the world, agitating for more benefits, more laws, more guarantees, for their own tribe ruling instead of someone else’s tribe. The Tea Party marchers were aiming for a uniquely American goal: less government, more individual liberty. To take responsibility for themselves, their families, and their country. Such a large rally would be inconceivable in Britain, France, Canada, you name it.
