Anger Is Now Hardened into Resolve
Liberal pundits are still writing from a modern perspective, analyzing data, looking for hope in recent past flips in electoral dissatisfaction, utterly oblivious to the true picture. Token conservative pundits still disdain the tea party movement and shake their heads in dismay as the old guard crumbles around them. The out-of-date media speaks as though they still have power to control the people’s flow of real information and shake their heads in wonder at how the masses are so stupid. Race hustlers from every nook and cranny still hurl their accusations as though the people believe them. Hit pieces against our modern liberty boys and girls appear regularly in formerly esteemed newspapers and magazines as though the people give a tiny whit what the loyalists prefer.
And just as our ancestors were willing to dump the darned tea into the harbor, rather than indulge their favorite luxury, modern Americans are making huge personal sacrifices to journey long distances just to make their voices heard.
It’s hard some days not to just sit back and laugh at the spectacle of a whole vanguard biting the dust and still not knowing what’s hitting them smack upside the head.
This is America, stupid!
This isn’t France or Britain or Germany or Italy. We’ve been putting those old Europeans’ faces in the dirt for more than 200 years now. The last thing in the entire world real Americans want is to follow Europeans off the cliff of freedom’s destruction, bringing our whole economy down in the bargain.
Luxury? Sure, we love luxury just as much as the next fellow. And we Americans have created more luxury for more common people than any civilization in the history of the world.
But just as our colonial ancestors were willing to sacrifice their personal fortunes for the liberty to determine their own futures, so are we.
For those idiots running this country into the ground for personal profit and power, here’s a message that ought to be heeded posthaste:
Individual liberty is a God-given right. It is unalienable by any government.
For 100 years, progressives have eroded individual liberty on the mantle of collectivist envy. And we the people have let them.
But on March 21, 2010, they went too far. The people know that the health care bill wasn’t about health care at all. It was and is about power, the power to control one’s own business, one’s own healthcare, one’s own destiny.
Over here we prefer liberty to luxury any day of the week. And we aren’t afraid to sacrifice luxury for our liberty.
This is precisely why all the old formulas, all the old data, all the old political playbooks of the past century are pitifully out of date now.
Welcome to the 21st century American revolution.
Doesn’t it feel great to be a patriot!
We’ll have our tea and eat the loyalist power-brokers for lunch. Tar and feathers? Nah. We’ll just use the vote, thank you.
