Forward, Into Battle
This is a snip from an article in The American Spectator. The article looks at the question of if the Tea Party movement is losing Patriots since the health care scam was signed into law. Are these concerned citizens just giving up? Some are losing heart, yes. They will find the strength returns though, and their resolve will be stronger than ever. It is not the time in our history to lay down in defeat. Read on, and find the full article at:

All the pomp surrounding this historic foray must be countered contemporaneously. This is ill-conceived, ill-timed, ill-executed and will yield no benefit. Conservative politicians who stood united against passage and who press relentlessly for repeal will reinforce this narrative. The bad guys came and tried to steal our freedoms but the good guys scraped to get them back. The path of most resistance can be the path to victory.
This uninterrupted trajectory can carry all the way to victory in 2012. The steps are simple: run the Congressional races in 2010 promising repeal. If one house of Congress is won, pass a repeal law out of that house to be blocked by the other. If both houses are won, send the repeal to the President for his veto. Once that happens, the stage is set for 2012 to elect a President who will sign the repeal. Here is a rare argument which forces voters to give one party both houses and the Presidency to achieve a desired result.
Additionally, all this is feasible because of the timeline. The main features of the bill are activated in 2014. The period between now and then will be rife with rumblings of massive governmental entities being shifted into position. These cannot fail to sound ominous, like the bureau being moved in the attic, like the first shift of snow signaling the avalanche. The likelihood that the bill will amass new adherents in the interim will be canceled by the live repeal debate. If it is allowed to build without opposition, it will prove worse in the prosecution than in the inception.
Furthermore, if this battle is over then others will begin. New and more ambitious slides into overt radicalism will visit and make themselves comfortable, bringing ever more companions in their wake. Yet if the battle over health care never dies then the Democrat energies will remain preoccupied. They cannot surge forward to capture new territory if the beachhead continues to take fire.
NOW, FOR SOME DISTURBING INFO FOR YA’LL. THE DEMOCRATS ARE SCREAMING THAT THE PUBLIC (TEA PARTIERS) IS THREATENING THEM SINCE PASSING THE HEALTH CARE HUSTLE. OF COURSE THERE IS SCANT TO NO EVIDENCE OF THIS – OF COURSE IT IS A TRUMPED UP AND CHILDISH ACT TO VILIFY THE OPPOSITION. THEY MUST DO TWO THINGS RIGHT NOW, ONE IS TO DEFLECT ATTENTION FROM THEIR CURRENT MOVE – TO PASS THE IMMIGRATION JUNK, AND TO DISCREDIT ANY OPPOSITION SO THAT THEY HAVE SOME SORT OF A CHANCE IN NOVEMBER.
IT WON’T WORK.
HERE’S SOME MORE DISTURBING INFO FOR YOU, TAKE THIS SH*T SERIOUSLY !!
