Conservatives Rally for Free Markets


Hundreds of grassroots conservatives rallied outside the U.S. Capitol to protest against government spending and defend free markets Friday afternoon.

"Big-government supporters are on the attack - the free market and our American way of life are the targets," said Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips.

AFP is holding their annual "Defending the American Dream Summit" this weekend. The group assembled 1,000 people for their conference and urged them to participate in this "free market call to arms" in front of the Capitol's reflecting pool  amidst an uncertain financial market.

"Free markets work! They work every time, they work all the time!" yelled AFP's North Carolina Director Dallas Woodhouse to loud whoops of applause.

Several protesters carried American flags in addition to their own protest signs. "Regulate yourself," said one.

"Stop Pelosi's Politburo!" "We are taxed to the max" and "No Commies in Congress" said some others.

During the event AFP members broke into the popular "Drill, Baby, Drill" chant to encourage Congress to increase domestic energy exploration.

One member shouted "NoBama" several times.
