Dateline Texas: Tea party Republican Ted Cruz forces an election runoff between he and Dewhurst.
Deb Fischer (R) candidate for US Senate wins over the establishment Republican in Nebraska!!
Another conservative win!
When an awkwardly tall and lanky man who was born in Kentucky and now lived in Illinois, attempted to run for public office for the first time, I bet no one gave him a lot of attention or even a second thought. I certainly bet no one thought that one day he would rise to the highest office in the land and that he would be an agent of change, for the betterment of our Union. The man of course, was Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican President. The Republican party started as a smaller, grass-roots, third-party, as an anti-slavery party in 1854. This is where we are in our political climate. We are witnessing a revival of common sense politics in our nation, all I can say is, it’s about time!
When the Tea Party (Taxed Enough Already) emerged on the scene, a lot of media types discounted them as right-wing crazies, it was largely dismissed as a bunch of angry white people, who were only protesting spending because president Obama was black. That’s right, the media automatically pulled the race card from the deck of tricks they have. They completely ignored the massive, unsustainable Federal spending that had swept in with Obama’s presidency. Then the media tried its very level best to paint the tea party as dangerous, home-grown terroristic, Timothy McVeigh types, who were seditious and anti-American. This only steeled over the resolve of the people who considered themselves part of the tea party movement, imagine, being called a sexual name and innuendo by the President of the United States because he disagreed with you and sound fiscal policy. Imagine being marginalized for something that our grandparents thought was normal, you don’t spend more than you have or make. Were giving away our national sovereignty by running deficits we can’t pay.
When the media raged at the Tea Party for being dangerous to the nation, what they really meant was, the Tea Party was dangerous to liberal progressives, and tax, spend, borrow, and tax again policies. However, a funny thing happened on the way to Washington D.C., the Tea Party hung up their Americana costumes and picked up their clip boards, telephones, and started organizing into an actual political action group and teaming up with other pro-freedom, low tax organizations such as FreedomWorks.org. As the Tea Party is gaining steam, the liberal media has had a sharp drop in following and tv ratings. You can really tell when the media is scared to death, they begin searching for stories they can spin into their self-serving narratives. I recently read a story on the Daily Caller that was titled “Tea party petering out in South Carolina?” Its premise was so obvious, try to beat up the Tea Party before some extremely important primary elections in Wisconsin, with Scott Walker (R), In Indiana, With Dick Lugar (R), and Richard Mourdock (R), and out in Utah with Orrin Hatch (R). Now, with Lugar voted out in his primary by 20 points, and Scott Walker (R) voted to stay in office, the media is beside itself. (By the way, Scott Walker didn’t need a single vote to win today, he was unopposed, but he received roughly 70,000 votes more than the two Democrats running against him combined. Wisconsin had a huge conservative voter turn out.) North Carolina passed amendment one, defining marriage as a legal union between one man and one woman and this also would be the only recognized marriage in NC. Now all eyes are on the primary in Utah, to see if Orrin Hatch can win his primary, he is challenged by Tea Party favorite, former Utah State Senator Dan Liljenquist. Needless to say, after todays conservative landslide, Obama’s really got to be wondering what his next political steps are. (A year ago the media said these things were impossible.) The so-called “war on women” he tried to spin as being a Republican problem, has back fired on him. Today he flip-flopped on the Gay marriage issue, his campaign is stinking of desperation. He was for it in ’96, then against it in ’08 and now he’s for it in ’12.
When your political opponents are grasping at straws, you know, that they know, they are in big trouble! Liberals are in a frenzy now, they are watching their religion, “Liberalism” take it on the chin, hard! One can only hope that the media keeps discounting the Tea Party and that the Occupy movement keeps crapping on cop cars and door steps. While their wasting their time begging for lattes’ and for electricity to charge their ipads, conservatives are sweeping into public office, and getting ready to turn this ship around.
