The Second American Revolution

At first I was amused and simply brushed aside the early Tea Parties and gave them little chance of effecting the American political system. I was wrong, boy was I wrong! This has turned into what many are now calling the "Second American Revolution" and it the end it may put to rest the creeping socialism that both parties have been guilty of pushing on a sleeping American giant, the common man. Millions have rallied and the numbers seem to be growing as more and more of the Health Care Bill is revealed and as the massive spending of the liberals in Washington goes unabated with total disregard to public opinion.

Things are quickly coming to a head and those forces on the left who stubbornly cling to their discredited values are beginning to feel the wrath of the American people---the American people who pay their bills---the American people who work hard and pay their taxes---the American people who for too long have been silent, while those on the left yelled and screamed to get their message out---the American people whose silence was taken as an endorsement for more government control and more government spending---finally, the American people are no longer silent and that silence has been broken by the roar of the crowd, or if you like,"the mob" and can be heard across this great country from the lighthouse on the rocky coast of Maine through the vast heartland and to the Golden Gate. The cry is not "the British are coming", the cry of this Second American Revolution is "No More Big Government---Leave Me and Mine Alone"!

I had high hopes for the TEA parties and town halls, but I was afraid after July 4th that they would peter out. No way, in fact the opposite has happened, as you say. They are building, bigger, stronger, more determined, more informed, more determined. I'm hopeful.

If it doesn't send the socialist back to the stone age, then I truly will have lost all faith in humanity's ability to overcome Washington.

This may not be the straw that breaks the socialist back, but it is certainly a beginning.

It has the virtue of getting people engaged. There are people looking a politics and actually looking into things. Even if it has no immediate effect, it might be the start of something bigger.

No one can say what will happen--flip a coin!

This movement is real, people have finally had enough. Nobody is representing us in Washington on either side of the aisle and that are not going to stand for it any more. There will be change coming next November, the people will be heard. The politicians who believe that this is an astroturf movement and the politicians who do not take us seriously will not be laughing next November.

Election day could very well be a bummer for many of these "out-of-touch" officials and their staffs.
