Close to 5,000 People @ Madison Tax Day Tea Party

Great Tea Party Protest in Madison, Wisconsin today at the State Capitol. Initial crowd estimates are around 5,000 people. The crowds were peaceful, but fired up. Paul Ryan kicked things off...recurring themes were:

*Enough is enough
*Government needs to serve the people--not the other way around
*No more taxes
*This is only the beginning
*We need to mobilize after today to get the word out

Here are some of my favorite signs:

The Constitution: The Other Document They Never Read

Read My Teleprompter, Cut Our Taxes

Flush the Doylet (for Governor Doyle)

The Real Pirates are in Washington

We Can't All Be Democrats...Somebody has to pay taxes

Right Wing Extremists Pay Their Mortgage
