There can no longer be "Politics as usual" in America anymore. There can only be one way and that is the American Way...
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
The issue that we seem to keep butting up against in the above preamble to the Constitution is the general welfare clause. It is not meant as a ladder to Socialism, it is meant to ensure that this Country is solvent and whole. The Establishment in DC would like to take that one small statement and run roughshod over the entirety of the rest of the preamble. The established justice has always worked for us as well until this racist Justice Department decided being white is a crime Culture of Corruption. The common defense had worked fairly well until this Justice Department decided that politics would be more important then defending our borders Political Hit Job. The domestic tranquility of our nation was destroyed by the anti-war left and continues to be destroyed by a President who seems to preside as a President of lefties and not the rest of America. The tranquility of this nation can only be preserved by those in office who love this Country more then they love themselves or their Big Business friends.
The bottom line is that Republicans in Congress have been more of a washed out version of Democrats for far to long. This two year test for Republicans will begin in the next Congress. They have put together a blueprint of how they want to govern for those two years and while not a perfect document definitely a beginning. If those Republicans pass the test of less spending, defunding Obamacare, making ALL agencies come back to Congress every year to explain their funding and spend no more then what was spent in 2008 well they will pass the test. If they do all the aforementioned in 2 years they will get an additional two years to do even more cutting, but if they whine and cry and fail, they too will be sent home.
2010 is no aberration it is the beginning of the end of the Political Class. WE The People will never again be cast aside for Big Business. We will never again be treated as second class citizens as our dollars are taken from our pockets to fill the pockets of bankers or the so called "poor". We will never again allow the Political Class to "spread the wealth" at our expense. This is a test for Republicans that they are going to be allowed to pass but there is no failing grade, failing means going home in 2012. There will be no more chances. This is it. Take it or leave it. The TEA Party Movement is ready to fill the void and for Republicans that is as scary as it is for Democrats! TEA Anyone?. It is as Erick Erickson says at the beginning of his book, the TEA Party Movements ideology is a Conservatives ideology and the two are actually one in the same. That there are 42% of the Country that self identify as Conservative means that for once in my lifetime WE get the Congress we want!
