The professional politicians in Washington and across the states (now to be referred to as the "establishment") are falling by the wayside. Yet they think so highly of themselves that some refuse to lose. Some excellent examples are Charlie Crist (FL) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska).
The "establishment" still has not grasped the meaning of We, the People. The "establishment" politicians (both parties) in Washington and across the states honestly don't know what to do with the rest of their lives now that the movement collectively referred to as We, the People are speaking up and telling them "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH". "They" didn't believe in We,the People (Tea Parties, 9/12s, etc.) when this movement began almost two years ago. They listened to the pollsters (main stream media) and “political experts”, both of whom still haven’t figured this out yet. So they assumed that their political lives, their liberty to do as they please when “legislating”, and their pursuit of a lifetime as a professional politician (their version of pursuit of happiness) would just continue on.
The “establishment” should wake up real fast. The movement of We, the People is just getting started. More changes are coming within the next four years. So the “establishment” might as well get ready for some REAL CHANGE!!
