Uncle Sam is getting an ear full today, now that his new nickname is Big Spender. Hundreds of Tea Party protests (not the "dozens" reported on CBS radio news at 4 p.m.) were staged throughout the country as taxpayers vented and voiced their opinion on runaway government spending. Maybe there was one in your town, too. Maybe you attended. Maybe you don't mind being labeled as one of the right wingers who may end up in a clandestine militia group which is bent on overthrowing the USA.
My guess is that even if you didn't stand up and carry a sign, you were there in spirit - part of the silent majority.
That silence will turn to shouting come November 2010.
