Tea party activists may not be as numerous in heavily Democratic Maryland as in Republican states, but they have held rallies with hundreds of supporters.

And organizers say their phones have been ringing a lot in recent days.

David Schwartz, the Maryland director of Americans For Prosperity, said he’s confident more people will be energized to take part in tea party events from now until Election Day after the historic vote in Congress to overhaul health care.

“I think it was a punch to the gut, again, sort of a reality check,” said Schwartz, who helps organize tea party events in Maryland in a group that was established in the state last April. “This is the real beginning of the 2010 campaign.”

So who are tea party members in Maryland and what do they want to do?

    With today’s news of Obama emasculating the United States even further, expect the Tea Party movement to grow that much more.

    I love that they asked for “Public Defenders”, now they know about the undercover FBI agent. The simpleton Tea baggers keep missing the point. These are the same whiners that were crying when the McCain/Bailin ticket lost. Now they are crying again because their yelling (because they are haters not debaters) did not stop health care from passing. They think they can scare, intimidate and force others to go along with them by comments like “This time we came unarmed”, let me tell you something they are not the only ones that are armed and not all ex-military join the fringe militia crazies who don’t pay taxes and run around with face paint in the parks playing commando, the majority are mature and understand that the world is more complicated and grey then the black and white that these simpleton make it out to be and that my friend is the point. Do not cry when regular people openly laugh at your group when they see on TV that your leaders are Sarah Bailin, Orly Taitz, Victoria Jackson, Michele Bachmann and that turn coat Glenn Beck from the LDS. They do more to discredit you on TV (powerful) than any of my comments do in the blog sphere.
