It really does sound like something out of Mao’s cultural revolution, doesn’t it? The Patriot Movement has been successful in ways that haven’t even become apparent yet. To the Marxists, our name is anathema. All you have to do is whisper “Tea-Party” around them and they go into paroxysms of vile invective, fit only for the streets of the slums they so love to perpetuate for their ‘plantation’ underclass.
Monday’s fiasco was no victory. What it was, was a classic display of Washington insider deal-making. I can tell you that the article I wrote, in which I began to explore the political necessity of replacing some or all of our party leadership, has drawn hundreds of comments. Although we haven’t had time to read them all, I assure you that we will within the next couple of days.
What you’re saying is surprising. Anger and disappointment… yes, there’s that in abundance. The country is a seething cauldron into which someone is poised to throw gunpowder. There is, however, a growing undercurrent of strength and determination.
It would be interesting to see a national census on the full numbers of the Patriot Movement, including those who agree with just about everything we stand for but do not necessarily identify themselves as tea-partiers. I’d be willing to venture to say that number could well run to a hundred million or more.
A new poll came out yesterday, saying that only 21% of the country identify themselves as liberal. This doesn’t bode well for the DeMarxists.
As Conservative Patriots, we have to take the lead in returning the country to sanity. The budget deal was a horrible piece of legislation that could only have been conceived in the fevered minds of the inside-the-beltway Republican establishment hacks. We know who all the players are, so I don’t need to go into that.
The Senate elections are coming up. We need to give some thought to who we will primary and then get strong conservatives to run in those races. Remember, no matter what they say… there are one hell of a lot more of us than there are of them. Let your voice be heard!
