Huge Crowd Protests Obama Policies at Stand Up Missouri Rally in Macon

JEFFERSON CITY—More than 1,100 tea party patriots and concerned Missourians rallied for freedom in Macon on Tuesday—just down the road from the site of President Barack Obama’s visit.

Several special guests addressed the Stand Up Missouri Rally, including Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer, Congressman Roy Blunt, Carl Bearden, state director of Americans for Prosperity-Missouri, former State Rep. John Loudon, and conservative activist Paul Curtman.

“Our common concern is that the country is literally being bankrupted by foolish ideas,” said Cindy O’Laughlin, an organizer of the rally. “Tonight, people from all around Missouri have spoken—and we are upset with the direction of this county! More than 1,100 people made our voices heard loud and clear, and Barack Obama can certainly hear us now!”

Speakers took issue with the Washington Democrat agenda—particularly the cap-and-tax energy scheme that would devastate rural Missouri.

“People are fed up with President Obama’s job-killing, big-government agenda. He would know that if he stopped long enough to listen to the concerns of real Americans,” said Lloyd Smith, Executive Director of the Missouri Republican Party. “It’s time to bring sanity back to Washington, DC—stop runaway spending, stop the government power grabs, stop the proposed tax increases that will hurt families and cripple businesses. Until he does this, President Obama will be met with overwhelming opposition, and demonstrations like the Stand Up Missouri Rally, wherever he goes.”
