It is true that the victory
of Scott Brown
versus Martha Coakley
in Massachusetts is literally historic, after someone other than a Democrat now sits in the Senate seat that once belonged to Edward Kennedy
who kept that seat from 1962 until his death in 2009.
Of course, the Internet and news media is buzzing about this landmark political win in a state that is considered a solid “blue” Democrat state, but what is the real message here?
The Obama Nation crowd is no different, they are worse.
Massachusetts has health care and so the rest of the country would like to have that too. So we don’t think a state that already has health care should determine whether the rest of the country should.
Plain in simple, the Democrat leadership and Republicans like GW Bush tell the American people what’s good for them because, in their opinion, the American citizen can’t handle the responsibility of taking care of themselves. Observing the habits and attitudes of some Americans, they are partly right – however, freedom of choice must always be maintained, and those that choose must face the responsibility of living with the decision they make within the freedom of choice.
How many of us have made mistakes during the course of life?
Are we to go to a government office and have people who look at the populace as peasants and/or dunces to govern our personal lives?
We allow this constantly by electing officials who believe Marxist nonsense.
What the message was in Massachusetts revealed: The government elite, the good old boys in federal (and state) government have pissed off the those who have remained silent for too long.
Previously, they were too busy making ends meet and trying to stay above the rising tax rates and cost of living, while their wages remained the same or just falling behind. This phenomenon has been caused by sociocrats that took over our government – and the Massachusetts citizens realized that the fiasco that Nancy Pelosi praised would be escalated nationally.
If you examine the voting mass that elected Scott Brown, you will not find primarily Republicans, but independents and third-party voters who have had enough of the political monopoly of the two-party traditional electorate.
It was — for the second time in Massachusetts history — the shot heard round the world, or at the very least from coast to coast and surely in the halls of Congress. Scott Brown won this one fair and square with his down-to-earth charm, his hard work and his forthright position on issues — and with the help of that much-disparaged by the opposition pick-up truck. But it is also true that Brown was the right candidate at the right time with the right message. And it’s that message that the White House and congressional Democrats can no longer ignore. After all, if the people of Massachusetts can send a Republican to the U.S. Senate to fill the seat Ted Kennedy had a lock on for 47 years, then the revolution has indeed begun. And like that battle in Concord more than two centuries ago, this is only the opening round. Her fellow Democrats will attempt to blame the loss entirely on Martha Coakley, her inability to connect with voters, her verbal blunders and on assuming her primary victory was all she needed. Much of that is true, but it is also true that Coakley promised to be simply more of the same. And voters here are tired of more of the same. They don’t see the point of an expensive new health care bill that threatens to damage the health care industry here, disrupt service to Medicare recipients and tax us all — especially when we already insure 97.4 percent of our people. They don’t see the point of paying higher and higher energy costs, when the world’s pollution is not our fault. They don’t see the point of growing the deficit so that our children and grandchildren will be paying for today’s policy mistakes — including a $787 stimulus bill that didn’t. Most of all they are simply tired of the kind of Washington arrogance that says ‘don’t worry; we know what’s best for you.’ Voters of Massachusetts wanted to take back the power that has been so sorely abused. Yesterday they did.
While the Obama Nation was looking at the Tea Party
organizers and protestors as misfits and possible reasons for a call for martial law, the real working here was indeed a revolution that had begun before Mr. Obama swore in as the 44th
President of the United States. It has been called across the Internet in the realm of cyberspace as the Second American Revolution
, except most utilized the old saying that the pen is mightier than the sword
– as well as peacefully organizing to oust usurpers of the US Constitution and the Jeffersonian republic. In this case the vote is mightier than the politician.
A few organizations are militant, but most want to use the process to ensure true reformation occurs. Instead of the Second American Revolution
, it should be called the American Reformation Age
, and that reformation cannot possibly happen without society reforming itself – improving their individuality, their character, their education, their knowledge and quit looking at our Founders as old white slave-owners in powdered wigs
. They were enlightened in an age of enlightenment because they, like Thomas Jefferson
, say the wisdom of classic philosophy of those who are far older than them, Cicero
, et cetera.
Were they perfect?
Of course not, they wrote the best documents of freedom and liberty in the history of civilization, yet still allowed slavery to exist. Some, like George Washington brought this factor out in public. Others, like Thomas Jefferson, wrote the thoughts in letters.
I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary, too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious. Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Ludlow, 1824
It was hypocrisy, of course. However, that does not deter the fact that since the government is By the People
, and then the People must make sure that the hypocrisy does not remain. Society must clean its own act in order to expect their government leadership to do the same.
Those we elect should be those that are better than the average in society. If we do not elect men and women with good character, integrity, honesty and the desire to uphold and protect the US Constitution and its Bill of Rights – how do we expect to have a strong and stable country?
This is what the Massachusetts people did. They realized that by voting for the same type of politician their circumstance would not only remain the same but worsen.
It really is the people’s seat, and yesterday the people took it back.
The Kennedy family political machine
had become the feudal lords of Massachusetts and the driving factor of corruption in Washington, DC. Ted Kennedy considered his senate seat his right, but in fact it was his constituents’ seat of government and he was elected to perform for them. The People finally saw through the platform of the Democratic Party, but cautious of the GOP. In stepped Scott Brown and they began to see the difference between his opponent, just by observing her behavior, attitude and examining her past performance. The people saw through their vindictive attack ads and character assassination that has won them too many elections.
That is why I praise the people of Scott Brown’s district, and why this has become a national focus. I hope President Obama supports more Democrats up for reelection. It will be to the people’s benefit.
Nancy Pelosi met with House Democrats yesterday to tell them how the negotiations on a compromise health care bill between the House and Senate were going. As she spoke, one Democratic member whispered to another, ‘It’s like talking about your date on Friday, but the date’s in the emergency room.
Compromising is not the solution – tossing it in the trash bin is.
Watered down or not, it is a step towards nationalizing 1/6th of the national economy into the hands of the government, and we all see how well they have performed with Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. We should know from history that the liberal-socialist never gives up.
The call for limited government is being shouted from the populace – and it is time for those in government to listen or seek other employment.
I am not referring to humanitarian aid to nations suffering from natural disaster as the recent tragic Haiti earthquake demonstrated – Americans are willing to help folks out in such situations; but in reality, this is what the America Red Cross
is for. However, the government has the resources to use the military in such humanitarian efforts to keep order, ensure that the survivors get their donated supplies, prevent looting and criminal activities, et cetera. Other nations have provided support for Americans, as in the case of Hurricane Katrina
