A little over two years ago, I wrote an article with the title, “Independents: Are You Nuts?!?!???” That article was primarily addressed to middle of the road people from both parties… Not this article! Not to start anyway. I’m talking to you moderate Republicans… genuine, bonafide conservatives… but reasonable people. You may have heard, Eric Cantor, the House majority leader lost his primary. NO???? You hadn't heard??? Well… It’s time to WAKE UP!!!!!
You know… liberals like me think of Eric Cantor as a far far extreme right wing nut… But I guess he’s not wing-nutty enough for some people... and those people were not sitting on their hands today… but you more reasonable conservatives got just a little bit too complacent.
Most of this country is languishing in political complacency!!!!! Meanwhile, the Tea Party is NOT complacent, and they’re taking the country by storm!!!!!
Okay lefties… NOW I AM talkin’ to YOU… and to you Independents as well… pretty much everybody from the far left to the right of center moderates. Remember the last mid-term election… 2010??? The year the Tea Party, took control of the House and many state legislatures across the nation??? NO???? Oh, that’s right… You were too busy fawning over your Facebook page to pay attention. What?!?!?!?!?!? You say I’m being unreasonably cynical?!?!?!?!?!?!????? Well… This is another mid-term election year… and I just want to let you know… If you sit on your hands this November the way you did in 2010… it ain't gonna be pretty. If you want something other than the hateful angry vision the Tea Party promotes, you’re gonna have to take some time to...
