If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

2012 May not just show a tossing out of the remainder of the uber-liberals, but the tossing out of quite a few Republicans as well if they don't heed the message of 2010.

Hmmm! My first reaction to this cartoon was that the voters put the Democrats in control in the first place. Moreover, it was the voters who bought the lefty demogagoguery in 2006 and the Obama Kool Aid in 2008.

The eagle in this cartoon should have been labeled "The Tea Party". And what's so neat about the Tea Party is that they are actually involved in (and driving) the political party.

No sheeple here.

Yes, the Tea Party Movement is probably the most significant political movement since the mid-late 1800's (from the founding of the GOP in 1850's to the populist movements 30 years later). Not in over 100 years, have normal every day people become so vocally active in politics.

A great deal of what drives this is the tonedeafness of the "political elites" and their biased media enablers. Labelling the Tea Party as racist last year was probably the absolute worst thing Progressives (Statists) could have done. While there are undoubtedly racists in the TPM, the vast majority are just average people who are pissed off at what the government and Congress are doing.

Now...for those in the Senate who don't get it (led by Jon Kyl) it's time to look for good candidates to oppose them in the primaries and get them the hell out of office. Because they are part of the problem and NOT part of the solution.

In Virginia, the TPM is doing just that. They are starting to groom and field candidates not just for state offices, but local offices as well. This is how the TPM will become a full blown political movement...by taking over the GOP from within.

The GOP, especially the leadership, has come adrift from the core beliefs that the party is supposed to stand for...and that's why the country slapped them down in 2006-2008 elections. They moved away from what they are supposed to be about.

It's time to let them know...that we won't stand for it any more.
