Will Americans keep up the pressure after the election?
We have seen with the rise of the Tea Party more people seeming to care about a mid-term election than ever before. There seems to be many who find Obama and his policies are the wrong thing for America moving forward. There have been many times in mid-term elections after a new President was elected that Presidents party loses seats in Congress. We have seen the liberals and progressives claim this as being against a black President rather than his policies. The question is why people who voted for him in 08′ would now be voting against people within his party. These people who have switched their opinion of him are now suddenly racist people for not voting for his party. We have seen this from the liberals for sometime when things get tough in elections, pull the race card and pull the class warfare card. It seems that many people are waking up to realize that Obama was just the wrong choice for the Country and must be slowed down or stopped completely.
The Democrats are behind is many races in this election and appears at the least the house will be controlled once again by Republicans. We have seen the tea party make a difference in many elections from within the Republican party primary’s. The real wonder is have the Republicans been listening to the frustration and anger of the American voter. We must hold them to their word, we have already shown them that nobody is totally safe from being voted out of office. Just by voting in Republicans to stop Obama isn’t the end of the road, We must continue to let our voice be heard. We can’t afford to once again become silent and allow them to do whatever without any consequences. We must make all members of congress fear the consequences of voting against the Constitution and the will of the people.
Thomas Jefferson said “When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.”
Will we stay involved?
This seems to be the really big question, Will the people who have spoken so loudly in this election go back to sleep? Will the Tea Party survive beyond this election or continue to grow for the 2012 election. I think we can no longer just vote and depend on our politicians without letting our voices be heard. I believe the Tea Party is here to stay, I believe there are enough people who are fed up with everyone in Washington. The Tea Party and many other groups must continue to get people involved in how this Country is ran. Voting on election day just isn’t enough anymore, everything is just too important to stay silent. You must find your voice no matter how small it may seem, write an email to your representative, donate to candidates you believe in, attend meetings to hear candidates speak and etc. Most of the nation which includes myself sat doing nothing while allowing all levels Governments to grow without constraint. Silence is no longer an option if you truly care what happens to this Country and the future generations of Americans
