Big Numbers at Tea Parties East


The Tea Party Express has a report of some 10,000 at a New Lenox / Joliet, IL, tea party.  The photos are inspiring!

Morristown, NJ, brings in 2,000:

Despite a hot and sunny break from weeks of rain, angry taxpayers skipped the beaches and crammed onto the Morristown Green — a historical site of revolutionary activity during the Revolutionary War — to express their frustration with increasing taxes and call for smaller government.

Though the tea party movement has focused on taxation, today’s event felt more like an old-fashioned free-speech protest, with flag-waving protesters carrying signs that read “America’s no longer free” and “Save our constitution!”

Update: 18,000 estimated at West Chester, OH, rally.
