Washington and the beltway are in an ecstasy of self-congratulation. What we, as Patriots, are going to do about this travesty, this multiplicity of prevarication foisted on us by our own leadership, has yet to be seen, but if the mass of melted copper that used to comprise the Capitol’s phone systems is any indication, the proverbial ‘merde’ is about to hit the fan.
Most of us have been watching this whole thing unfold in our nation’s capital with undisguised anger, leavened by an equal amount of disgust. A number of us were, judging by the comments we’re receiving, willing to reserve some judgment. Most, like myself, were a much more skeptical bunch.
We’re going to have to give some serious consideration to a change in the Republican Party leadership, and soon at that. RINO hunting aside, if we don’t have leadership that will stand up to this cabal of leftist Marxi-Socialists, now comprising what used to be the Democrat Party, our country is in for some very rough times.
Watching these liberal forecasters try to paint some sort of rosy glow around what is a badly failed and dismal economy is comical in a tragic sort of way. They’ll grasp at any straw, no matter how tenuous, to try and convince you and I that the recovery is just around the corner if we’d just pay more for the government to ‘grow’ the economy.
So the deal that wasn’t becomes the deal that never was, and the deal that never will. They are touting the passage of this bi-partisan compromise as some great victory for Republicans and the country. It is neither. When anyone in Washington says ‘bi-partisan’ or ‘compromise’ it’s a sure indication we’re going to get the shaft.
What this is, is a call to action to all Tea-Party patriots to stand up and be counted. This is a fight that’s going to be won in the neighborhoods and the cities. It’s about time we let these so-called leaders, and every single senator and representative who voted to kite the debt and the massive spending again, know just exactly where we stand and where they stand with us.
Semper Vigilans, Semper Fidelis
