Welcome to Nevada, Tea Partiers

In about 24 hours, the Tea Party movement will gather in Searchlight to kick off a series of rallies around the country.

I think this gathering will become to politics what Woodstock was to music, only with less drugs and more lawn chairs.

I'll write more about that in Sunday's Review-Journal. I'll appreciate your readership.

In the meanwhile, my advice to Tea Partiers is to remember that the power structure is scared spitless with your movement. They don't understand it and either want to harness it, or knock it down.

So be cool. Have a great time. And, welcome to Nevada. If you've come from the People's Republic of California, this is what freedom looks like.
