There's a big crowd today for the Boise Tea Party rally on the Capitol steps, with speakers including costumed re-enactors representing such historical figures as Patrick Henry. Here's a sampling of the signs people are carrying: "King George didn't listen to us either" "Socialism=Slavery" "Legalize the Constitution" "Even God only asks for 10%" "Stop Water Fluoridation" "Where's the birth certificate?" "Obama-Pelosi-Reid - The axis of taxes" "Proud to be American, not Socialist" and "November 2010: We take our country back." There were some spontaneous chants of "Vote them out," and, with encouragement from speakers, "USA."
