AS THE SEPTEMBER 12 Tea Party march of two million and this blog wanes temporarily, here's a quick spot on why things are different now. As Shannon Love noted on the Chicago Boyzblog and and now echoed by Mark Tapscott in the Washington Examiner the times may be changing again:
"Getting hundreds of thousands of kids, the professionally unemployed, and government workers to show up isn't that hard [especially if someone buys the bus tickets]. Getting two million middle-class, middle-aged people with jobs, careers, children and businesses is way, way more impressive.
"We can safely assume that for every individual who made it to the protest that there are dozens of people whose grown-up obligations prevented them from attending.
"That thought should keep Obama and Pelosi up at night."
Indeed. To have Federal laws written by outsider lawyer groups like the Apollo Group, and driven through congressional hoops without having even been read by those who dare to vote on such game-changing legislation being shoved down the American populace is just wrong, anti-American, and no way to run a republic founded upon the principles of liberty and constitutional law. It's that simple, folks. America, please. This nation is slipping away. Both parties have long raped and pillaged the US Constitution as if she deserved it in flaunting her exquisite and growing beauty and liberty for all peoples to admire and aspire to. Where has our once lauded American magnanimity gone? Can we not agree that this serial abuse of our constitution must be stopped?
