You bet the American people are coming for Congress. Here we have a Democrat who worked for the Jimmy Carter Administration who realizes the legitimacy and power of the Tea Party movement.
This brings a few very pertinent questions to mind.
Will the Republican Party leadership ever come out of their isolation bubble and welcome Tea Party Patriots as the revitalizing force they so desperately need? Or will they continue to attempt usurping it’s energy while claiming credit for what We The People have done? Will they allow Conservatives a voice in the choice of candidates, or will they continue to foist candiates like Dede Scozzafava upon the electorate, thereby ensuring more congressional seats are won by progressive socialists hell bent on destroying our country?
Does a Conservative message doom the Republican Party to failure as some (mainly progressive socialists and other corrupt politicians hoping to share in the spoils) have argued? Unless you’re hostile to America and the American system, why is this even a legitimate question for anyone, especially Republicans, to ask?
This is a center-right country. More people in the United States identify themselves as Conservatives than any other single political identity. The current White House occupant won the 2008 election by preaching ad naseum about “tax cuts for 95% of Americans”, “going after the budget with a scalpel to cut out waste”, and keeping America safe by fighting the “just war” in Afghanistan.
That, folks, is a Conservative message.
Why now, with America’s back against the wall, while ravenous progressives socialist wolves are circling her covered wagon and howling at the moon, are Republicans hostile towards Tea Party Patriots who strive to return America to limited government as outlined by our Founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution?
The lady doth protest too much, methinks.
