Someone else picks up on it – only a short 16 months after I first noted this:
The Internet is a large-scale version of the “Committees of Correspondence” that led to the first American Revolution — and with Washington’s failings now so obvious and awful, it may lead to another.
People are asking, “Is the government doing us more harm than good? Should we change what it does and the way it does it?”…
Or, as I put it:
… We don’t want our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor destroyed to placate the false gods of group-think, environmentalism and grievance-mongering.
Liberalism won the 2008 election, but it did not win the right to dictate to the whole nation how it shall live…we didn’t vote once and for all for Obama’s vision of America…
The fundamental flaw in the Obama Administration – and liberalism as a whole – was the presumption that the 2008 result was definitive. They really thought that the majority had voted for liberalism. The fact of the matter is that the people who gave Obama his victory voted not for liberalism, but against a worn-out GOP and in favor of fundamental change in the way government does business.
“Change” didn’t mean “spend even more money on a failed governing theory”. It also didn’t mean “in the first non-white Administration, harp endlessly upon racism”. It further didn’t mean “hey, now we can be even more corrupt than before!”. Most importantly, it did not mean “the people a ticked off about Bush’s TARP, so lets do even more of it!”.
It is our good fortune – such good fortune as can easily be classed as God’s grace – that our Founders set up a system where by even in our current condition, we can have a revolution at the ballot box. And we will have one – its starts this November, and it will go on for a generation. We will restore America – we will be free, now and forever.
