I think it’s pretty safe to say that the Tea Party people are serious now. They mean business. They have followed the folks they elected to Washington and are watching them not only like hawks, but like all-American bald eagles.
They do not intend to let them get away with any funny business. And they are forcing them, for the most part, to stay focused on matters of fiscal and governmental responsibility instead of on the social issues that many would probably like to return to. So far, so good. The Tea Partiers are keeping their promises. I hope their new proteges keep theirs as well.
This is not your grandpa’s GOP. The challenges that we now face are unique to this new century. It’s time to leave the 20th Century behind. This is exactly the theme of this Blog. Even though I am, at this point, only a Tea Party sympathizer, I am totally on board with what they are trying to accomplish.
I’ll be watching every development in the weeks and months to come. Born on 9-11 will be very busy.
