It’s the burgeoning confrontation between the Republican Party machinery status quo and a newly-awakened wave of patriotism and political awareness which was not present two years ago.
This is one of the many things the Marxists don’t get about the Conservative movement, because they reference everything as an ideologically-driven environment. What the left has tried to do here in this country has united and ignited the right as nothing else could, melding the various factions of the right into a Conservative Patriot Movement, which encompasses the Tea Party groups, the Tea Party Express, Patriotic Resistance and others.
In the beginning, say, two years ago, we only represented a minor pain to the establishment. We were a phenomenon, some place for hoi polloi to vent their spleen and, in the confusion, it would be easy to reassert their old policies.
It became apparent that the Patriot Movement was not the momentary fad they had assured themselves it would be. Instead, it began to grow… and grow… and grow. It’s growing as we speak. The Tea Parties and the constitutional patriots are popular for a reason.
The movement is the voice of the American citizen… black, white, Asian… it doesn’t matter, because we’re all on board for one reason, and that’s to protect and defend the Constitution from enemies foreign and domestic. The good Lord above knows we have plenty of both varieties.
I think it would be an excellent idea for the incoming Republican majority to revisit the treason and sedition laws and put some real teeth in our national security. Some of these sleazy, pompous blowhards may think twice before they shoot their big mouths off, compromising national security secrets and giving aid and comfort to the enemy in time of war.
The Republican establishment is in danger of becoming an also-ran. There are some similarities between establishment Republicans and the liberals of the left. They’re both afraid of the Patriot Movement for different reasons. The left, because they know they have been totally stripped of cover and are facing what can be best described as political disaster. The Republicans, maybe facing an equally grim end if they don’t come around and support the Tea Party candidates.
It may be the last hoorah for a number of the RINO moderates cloaking themselves in the banner of the party. Once again, we know who you are and we are going to purge the Party of you and replace you with strong Constitutional Conservatives.
