The Tea Party I attended on Thursday was not disrupted by anyone. It was a concern, though; apparently, all the publicity surrounding the possibility deterred those who might have desired to cause trouble. Of course, there’s always one segment of society that will remain a problem.
I mentioned in my last post that I don’t believe the Tea Party movement is going to die out. One major reason for that is the Democratic leaders from Obama on down are not moderating their positions or their goals. News today is that Harry Reid is already planning to go around Senate rules—as he did for the healthcare bill—to force through massive cap-and-trade legislation. Passage of a bill such as that will be almost as devastating as the healthcare program.
On top of all that, we are now awaiting Obama’s next pick for the Supreme Court. Everyone on the “short list” that is circulating is a radical when it comes to interpreting the Constitution. Not one person on that list has any desire to contain the authority of the federal government even though the Constitution dictates a limited role for the government. The appointment of radical judges was one of the direst warnings conservatives offered during the presidential election campaign.
The only trace of good news here is that Obama will be merely replacing one radical with another—the makeup of the Court will not be altered . . . for now.
Vigilance must continue. Now is not the time to relax. We must keep educating American citizens. Perseverance is the key.
