Joe Biden Makes Campaign Stop in Rushville… MASSIVE Tractor Protest Breaks Out!

Last night Joe Biden held a rally at Rushville Middle School.
Only 800 people showed up.

But outside was a different story.
Local farmers organized a flash tractor and crane protest across the street from the middle school. It took them only 24 hours to organize the counter rally.

HUNDREDS of Romney supporters turned out!

In addition to the 25 tractors there were cranes, spotlights and port-a-johns.
The Lancaster Eagle Gazette reported:

It only took 24 hours for a small group of Romney/Ryan supporter to gather forces and pull together a tractor pull to counter Vice President Joe Biden’s rally Sunday at Rushville Middle School.

In that short amount of time, Joe Young, one of the men who started the event, said they were able to secure a location, food and drink, a 20’-by-40’ American flag and more than 25 tractors and other big pieces of machinery.

“It all started from a phone call,” said Young, of Rushville. “We thought we’d have our own rally and it really blossomed from there. I just can’t believe how quickly it came together.”

As Biden’s campaign set up inside the gymnasium of the middle school, Republicans started setting up their demonstration directly across the street in a field.

Mike Ricketts, the property owner, said he was more than willing to let his fellow farmers and friends use his property.

“We wanted to make a statement,” Ricketts said. “And people just came.”

They also donated equipment. In addition to the tractors, there were also cranes, spotlights and port-a-johns.

Several veterans joined the tractor rally. (Lancaster Eagle Gazette)

    It’s Obama time again, don’t know whether he’s wrong or he’s right
    But be ready to step right up and kiss Rmoney goodbye
    Yes, this brother’s fine
    We’ll vote women, we’ll vote women in next time
    On the brink of a dive
    Economy goin’ to thrive

    If your daddy’s rich, he’ll pay for your meals
    If your daddy’s poor, he’ll get a good deal
    Say so long to Rmoney
    He and Ryan can return to mundane lives
    They couldn’t swim the progressive tide

    Now we’re in debt to China, Japan, and the Saudis
    Twelve years of war has brought us to our knees
    Spending every penny on those poor Afghanies
    With the Country’s ailin’, the key wasn’t Ryan and Rmoney
    It’s now Obama’s time and now we’ll all be happy
    Makin’ a good livin’ in this here democracy

    Sing along with us dee dee dee dee dee
    Da da da da da, yeah we’re hap-happy
    Da da da, new mac daddy, new daddy O-ba-ma
    Da da da da da, da da da do da da

    Now the winter’s here, think we’re gonna be just fine
    Raise your glasses, wear a smile because this is Obama time
    We’ll all sing again, we’ll be thrivin’
    When the markets are a risin’
    Then we can all ditch Boehner
    Bring all your friends and we’ll all go paint the town red

    This kind of stuff brings tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat. It gives me hope that we will not hand this country over to the left.

    I live in CT a blue state all the way. I travel 15 miles, 1/2 hour, thru 6 small towns each morning to get to work. In 2008 I saw hundreds of Obama yard signs and bumper stickers on my way to work. This year I have seen one Obama bumper sticker in the last month and 3 Obama yard signs. I do not believe the polls at all.

    Joe, once again, this songs for you.

    I read you were told you would be taking a vacation soon. I hope part of that time will be spent in the doctor’s office. We worry about you, Joe.

    This election is between the government parasites, demented Liberals and lifelong Democrats and hard working/tax paying productive Americans that have to pay for EVERYTHING! I hope 51% of the people have come to their senses – but I am not optimistic – too many leeches in this country.

    Just Beautiful.

    “We wanted to make a statement,” Ricketts said. “And people just came.”


    And Tomorrow, we all will come together.

    Good job by hard working farmers! They didn’t need to pay anyone to bring those tractors like we see all those paid protesters loading on busses. Obama and Biden would be surprised to hear exactly how a farmer feels about this mess.
