1,000 protest Obama visit to Wisconsin

~ Protest Obama's universal health care ~

We have become accustomed to liberals showing up to protest Republican presidents ... but conservatives do not do much organized protesting of Democrat presidents.

Until now.

More than 1,000 turned out in Green Bay, Wisconsin, along four blocks of the motorcade route of President Barack Obama, to protest his proposed universal health care.

Local Fox Channel 11 reported:
Most of the protestors were part of a grassroots movement that calls itself "The Party of Know." Jerry Bader, a conservative talk show host on WTAG 1360, helped organize the rally. Most protestors said their purpose Thursday was to let President Obama know just exactly how they feel about a government backed health care system.

"It doesn't work," Dawn Papapetru said. Papapetru said she feels an obligation to speak out. She now lives in Green Bay but was born and raised in Canada, a country that provides universal health care for its citizens.

"I know what the free health system is all about. It's wrong. Taxes will go up, gas will go up and the lines get longer in hospitals," Papapetru said.
Americans began turning out and speaking up during the tea parties held nationwide earlier this year. More tea parties are planned for July, August, and September.

Is this a sign of what is to come? Over 1,000 Americans turned out to protest Obama in Wisconsin ... America is waking up.
