This past Wednesday night in Portland, Oregon we had hundreds upon hundreds of grassroots activists in a downtown park protesting Al Gore’s (without a doubt the largest emitter of hot air in the nation) pro-cap-and-trade speech. Click here for pictures of the event.
Ever wonder if your grassroots efforts are making a difference — well the state’s largest newspaper, The Oregonian which is one of the most liberal in the nation, editorialized the next day that the pro cap-and-trade side sees its “momentum slip sliding away…” The Oregonian went on to detail how public opinion is turning against the cap-and-trade forces as well which is a stunning confession from such a liberal newspaper.
Al Gore tried to deflect the grassroots fire against his radical ideology by calling our Americans for Prosperity rally a “…so called astroturf campaign from Washington, D.C…”
