Missoula and Bozeman Tea Parties
« on: April 15, 2009, 06:29:24 pm »

 
I attended the Tea Party in Bozeman today, along with hundreds of other people
(I heard estimates of 400-700).  I never personally saw the whole crowd - we
were crowded on the area in front of the courthouse, on the steps, on the
lawn - 8 inches of snow and all, and on the sidewalk up and down both sides
of Main street.  We walked the length of Main street east to west from the
library to the courthouse.  Elias was among the speakers.  He gave a great
short speech on Oath Keepers.

Nasty conditions, lots of people didn't even have any hat on in the cold wet
snow, but it didn't dampen the enthusiasm.  Not summer soldiers these.

Gary sent this - looks like they had a real good crowd in Missoula also.

Excellent!  Good to hear that so many people in so many different places got out and made connections with others.

Bozeman had a LOT of honks and thumbs up.  I thought the honks for the Ron Paul signings were good, but this was incredible.   Sometimes several in a row!  Semi trucks, too.

 A friend of mine was at the one in Hamilton (noon to 1) and said there were 300 to 400
He then went to the one held in Stevensville (at 4 to 6) and claimed there were  even more people at it.
