Tea Party thrusted great momentum into political activity of 2009 and 2010. It was exciting as it brought back some enthusiasm. We regained ground against Obama and progressive insurgency. It feels better when our take-back-America momentum attracts attention. Now, as the new Republican Congress gets down to business over Omama care and the deficit and spending orgy, it feels more like a slog-slow process. Danger of losing momentum? Maybe; it's a concern.
The step-by-step events we see every day in the budget process. Defunding Obama care seems necessary; going detail-by-detail as the two sides slug it out. Democrats now visible to everyone trying to hold on to all of their ground allowing for no reduction of spending. Are we in danger of Republicans giving in? Lets tell them loudly that they are the only ones on that ship of state bailing water. That ship is actually sinking. Can bailing out the water ( cutting the spending) save the ship? We don't know but the guys on the ship better not give up or slow up.
Dick Morris's book "REVOLT" enumerates long lists of the step-by-steps needed. His description is as good as I have seen in print. Lets hope our sailors in congress have it planned in detail. The card check threat and the Carbon dioxide emissions (EPA brutality) and the new destructive finance regulations are even now strangling small business and their jobs. Obama et.al. will not back down on those strategies. Do not compromise these. Chop them clean off.
Meanwhile, the States continue going after Obama on numerous fronts. Lets hope the Wisconsin, Ohio and Indiana process continues strong push to reinvigorate Federalism. In the face of that, the progressive, radical team likely has its own plans in detail to fend off and refute our efforts to protect our country.
