It's the Republicans Who Should be Scared of the Tea Party

It seems no one in Washington, whether they're a Democrat or Republican, is spared from the public's wrath in the wake of healthcare reform. Wait until the first Tuesday in November, both parties have been warned, the nation's capital is in for another shake-up. The Democrats argue that Republicans are on the wrong side of history and that voters, energized and thankful for healthcare and other social reforms, will vote the donkey party back into another majority of both houses of Congress. Republicans counter that Americans are fed up with big government and the liberal excesses of Obama-nation.

Spicy rhetoric aside, Americans are faced with three choices for government:

1 - A liberal, socially-conscientious system that focuses on inclusion and improvement
2 - A conservative, self-righteous system that aims to keep everyone in their place
3 - The Tea Party, you know, the one whose spiritual leader is Sarah Palin

We all know which way America is leaning.

While the Democrats definitely have their work cut out for them and have to shift their focus back to issues of national security and those two wars we're fighting overseas, it's the Republicans who ought to be scared. Not scared of the Democrats, mind you - they've already lost that battle. No, the Republicans should be afraid of the Tea Party. That rogue group could either drag the GOP into the far right fringes of political and religious extremism or force them to return to their core values of fiscal prudence. Either way, the GOP is pants-down in this situation. At the moment, they're a caricature of a party forced into a serious reckoning with the lowest common denominator of political debate.

Meanwhile, that "hopey changey" thing is working out for the Dems just fine.

Inclusion only if you agree with them. Otherwise, you're a racist, sexist, bigot homophobe terrorist.

A conservative, self-righteous system that aims to keep everyone in their place.

It wasn't conservatives who keep poor blacks and other minorities crushed under the heel of grinding poverty so they don't wander off the plantation.

The liberals have managed to piss off a ton of people and, naturally, are blaming Republicans. It ain't gonna work.

TGC, I'll be the first to tell you that there needs to be an accountability clause in all of these social progress initiatives. I know many people who have gotten a hand up from the government and they have more than paid our society back with their taxes and the example they set. It's my firm belief that of the 30 million plus people who now have a shot at healthcare, a significant portion of this group will go on to do great things. This is an investment in our future as a nation and I'm proud of it. Sorry you can't see it this way.

I'm sorry that you see the theft of money, liberty and freedom as a great idea. If you're willing to give up your freedom for the security of "free health care", you deserve neither.
