convinced us of this Nation’s nanny, socialist, Big Government, bankrupting, victim-producing statist ways by now, it isn’t going to happen (and I’m speaking of “us” as enough of “us” to change the way Congress thinks). Have you seen Stossel’s special, Freeloaders on the Fox News Channel? It has aired throughout this past week. If you haven’t seen it, and your kids haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it.
Like all of Stossel’s specials, this one leaves you enraged, or at least with the deep realization that these government traps, designed to allow the free flow of power to the House and Senate, must be stopped. But how? Stossel has been “informing” us for years now. We have all studied. We know the Constitution inside and out. Nevertheless, we cannot stop the newer, bigger, government we awake to every day.
Doug Ross was burning on the continuing resolution agreement yesterday, and no matter how you feel about that – whether Boehner did all that could be done under the circumstances, or not – we have to reconnoiter and refuse to accept that we cannot kill-off most of the self-propagating, stinking, rotting government. Doug has a message for the “old Republican bulls,” and, friends, this is the only solution, THE ONLY WAY, we can make America right and whole again:
And I have a message for them: we are going to overwhelm the legacy Republican Party with Constitutional conservatives (note: not “Tea Party extremists” like the Democrat caucus has instructed you to say) in 2012 and kick your asses out of the House leadership positions.
This, of course, applies to the Senate as well.
I remember just a couple of years ago when the kitchen table talk around my house was: the only way to change things is to stand on the steps of Congress. We did it, we stood there and stood there and stood there. We gathered on the Washington Mall. We walked the halls, and showed-up at every townhall and voted our one vote – and we DID send Constitutional conservatives to the House. But until the Fossils decide to do fearlessly what they must…ignore being called murderers, and hold to every advantage the leadership has, even if they fail in the shadow of a Democrat Senate, we will take one step forward and two back, as new government agencies spring up like fleas on a pup, the numbers of federal employees explodes, and money flows even though there is no budget to “appropriate.”
We need Republicans in both chambers at the microphone talking about a balanced budget amendment, and writing the debt ceiling into law. Those less involved need to hear it day in and day out, and from the mainstream media, not just on Fox.
From now until the 2012 election, we have to boldly accept that the Senate will be a problem. To say the Senate won’t pass what the House does may be reality, but it doesn’t change the fact that the House is it’s own entity, and must do the most it can do.
We MUST discharge the fear of the government-leech vote (ACORNs and community organized masses), and move forward. We cannot win this by believing the mass of entitlement Democrats will vote us out of office. There has to be confidence in the Conservative vote. We saw it in 2010. Why can’t we believe in it? If we do, voters will begin to take notice…see some hope, and in November 2012 we WILL load the Senate with Constitutional conservatives.
