Living here in the Midwest I can tell u this: People HAVE HAD IT. They've been pushed 2 the limit & they've got nothing 2 lose at this pt.

The pundits should understand this: the 10s of 1000s u've seen this week in JUST ONE STATE is bigger than anything the "tea party" has done.

This movement--we'll call it the "Madison Movement"(after both the town where it was born & the president who wrote our BillofRights)...

...Is exploding across the Midwest. It will be unlike anything you've seen in recent U.S. history. It is built on this 1 truth:

Corporations have taken over our country & we know this is our LAST chance 2 wrestle America away from the grubby hands of the greedy rich.

U know us as Midwest. We r fightingback. We will risk everything we have if that's what it takes. We-will-shut-the-machine-down. Pls b w/us
