The past ten years started with planned acts of terrorism by Islamic radicals and ended with spontaneous acts of patriotic protests by average God-fearing, freedom-loving Americans. The TEA PARTY PARTICIPANT woke up and began to see that the current president was carrying out an anti-American agenda, which his immediate predecessor, the Compassionate Faux Conservative President began with such things as his push for Medicare Part D Prescription Drug ‘benefit’, Amnesty for Illegal Aliens, the North American Union Highway and the ill conceived Bailouts . . . President Hope & Change intensified the move toward socialism with multiplied spending schemes and expanded socialist policies and legislation. It all started to come to a head this year . . .
So it was very fitting when the 2009 Person of the Year was named by WorldNetDaily.com to be the TEA PARTY PARTICIPANT. Actually, I would go further and conclude that the same person should be named the Person of the first 10 years of this millennium.
You could say that these two persons – the Islamic Terrorist and the Tea Party Participant – are bookends to a decade of lost opportunities.
2000 - 2009, I say was 10 years of 'lost opportunities' because we, conservatives, thought we were electing a conservative president in George W. Bush. He proved to be a half-hearted conservative at best. He did not advance either fiscal or social conservative issues with any passion or necessary leadership.
The Tea Party Participant, on the other hand, represents the real hope for America going into the new year and decade. An awakened electorate, who will do something daring in May and in November in response to the outrageous acts of domestic terrorism and foreign terrorism being visited upon America. Hopefully we will purge Congress of the in-House & in-Senate socialists. Many in Congress and in government today are bent on moving the country toward tyrannical and global governance. If the country can survive the legislative atomic bombs being dropped on an almost daily basis, come November we may be able to neutralize a grossly arrogant and errant President. That is the HOPE and the CHANGE that is really needed . . .
