Thousands turn out as Tea Party Express makes its way to D.C.

~Shenandoah Valley has filled 4 buses~

It's 10:06 pm on the East Coast and 7:06 pm in Flagstaff, Arizona ... and thousands of tea party patriots are live on Fox News Channel's Greta Van Sustern show as correspondent Griff Jenkins talks with attendees and listens as they chant, "U.S.A.! U.S.A.!"

The Tea Party Express is making its way to Washington, DC, for the huge September 12 rally at the Capitol, stopping at towns and cities along the way as momentum builds against nationalized health care.

They are not AstroTurf and they are not typical protesters. Most have never protested anything before in their lives but feel strongly that they are losing their country, their freedoms are being taken away, and their elected representatives are not representing them.

How many people will show up in DC on September 12? Who knows? But we have FOUR buses filled going from the Shenandoah Valley and have now reserved a fifth. A caller to Sean Hannity's radio show today said they had two buses coming from his area of Georgia and, he said, 95% of those people had never protested before.

Same with the Valley buses. Most of the people have not protested in the past but they are paying $35 to go to the Nation's Capital ... all ages and socio-economic groups -- from high school and college students to working parents to professionals to doctors and dentists to retired folks.

This is truly an American movement of We the People. It is amazing to hear the stories as we talk with them, and that will be my focus on the bus going to DC ... to get the individual stories of those who will join with tens of thousands of other patriots to stand up and be heard.

The sleeping giant has been awakened and will roar on September 12. It will be an historic day in American history.

See you in D.C.!
