Vice President Joe Biden on Monday said if Republicans succeed in winning back the House in 2010, it would be the "end of the road" for the White House's agenda.My real concern is that the GOP leadership in Congress won't understand the very shakey "mandate" they've been given by an angry citizenry. They must, without hesitation, begin rolling back both the enormous size of our current federal government, but also must vastly reduce it's intrusion in both business as well as that of they people.
American government is designed around one small but significant idea, that our government must be,
“A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.” Thomas Jefferson, First Inaugural Address, 4 March 1801.That's by the founder of the Democratic party. A party that's forgotten it's roots and drifted so far away from what the founder's intended that's it's nearly indistinguishable from European socialist parties. Indeed, here's video of important members of the Democratic party saluting and declaring solidarity with the European Socialist Parties at their EU convention last year.
But, the leaders of the GOP must understand this: If they fail to even attempt the task for which American has entrusted them, they too will be swept aside in 2012...take heed!
