All you need to do is look at the picture and can see many reason’s for Obama’s FIRST WATERLOO even before the special election Massachusetts recently had where the Republican Scott Brown won the senate seat.

Thus I call the loss of Massachusetts, Obama’s SECOND WATERLOO. And it doesn’t end there. Obama faces a THIRD WATERLOO here’s how and why.

Out-of-touch Democrats and the Kamikaze Congress

The American people voted for change on November 4, 2008, many envisioning a new era of progressive politics and social reform under Barack Obama. The newly elected president got to work immediately, depending on a strengthened Democratic majority and high approval ratings in early 2009 to justify pushing a radical liberal agenda through Congress. One year later, public enthusiasm has shifted to the other side.

Young, uninformed voters who jumped on the Obama bandwagon have moved on to the next social trend, some regretting their votes upon finding that the president’s version of change is not what they expected. Tea parties organized on a grass roots level are gaining widespread popularity and momentum among the working and middle classes, despite an intense media propaganda effort to portray the movement as marginal. But while Obama’s plummeting approval ratings reflect an increasingly disillusioned citizenry, his position is safe for the moment.

The same cannot be said for House Democrats. They will reap the consequences of President Obama’s policies, and their roles in a legislative experiment gone wrong.

Democrats across the country are switching parties or retiring, probably because they place greater value on their political careers than in blind party loyalty or supporting a far-left agenda. A new Rasmussen poll indicates that 36% of Democrats “believe their representatives in Congress have lost touch with the party’s voters”, while only 54% say they “have done a good job representing their party’s values over the past several years.”

Obviously, Democrats are not on the same page as their supporters, let alone independents and Republicans. Which page are they on? Whose interests are they representing? And how can they possibly believe that ignoring their constituents will be helpful in winning reelection in November?

Some don’t, which is why they’re getting out of the game with their reputations intact. The rest, who go along with Obama’s disastrous agenda, seem to be committing political suicide, sacrificing their careers to implement long-lasting changes in U.S. government and society that the people do not want. Like Japanese kamikaze pilots of the Second World War, they fly a one-way mission. But this brand of liberalism is no “divine wind,” and the inevitable crash will affect the entire country.

The House of Representatives was designed to reflect shifting public opinion. Today’s problem is that opinion is shifting, and House Democrats aren’t reflecting. They continue to pursue federal health care reform that is unnecessary, unpopular, and unconstitutional. They ignore, or support, the president’s alarming use of policy “czars,” sidestepping Congress and the voters in an unprecedented increase of the Executive Branch’s power. If Democrats refuse to address the problems in the Obama administration, and continue to disparage the legitimate dissent of concerned citizens, they will be dealt a severe blow in the coming 2010 election, which could result in a lost Democratic majority and lame duck presidency only halfway through Obama’s first (and possibly last) term.

This is not to say that Republicans are safe, either. Some in Washington, like Representative Ron Paul and Senator Jim DeMint, are active and vocal in their opposition to the current mad dash toward big government and socialism. Others are disturbingly silent. So-called RINOs (Republicans in name only) may find their seats to be equally at risk in the coming election.

Both major parties have an opportunity to represent the best interests of the American people by embracing the Constitution and the free market, and slowing Obama’s progressive agenda. They have less than ten months until Election Day. There is no doubt that voters will be watching their actions very carefully.

I wrote about this six days ago, making the same point this person makes. However I’m posting this article I came across because it reaffirms what I have already said, while going into greater details of what I was conveying those six days ago. Some of this article will just…well…piss you off. It’s not anything new however it might enlighten you to just what the Federal Government is doing as a whole, where and what they are messing with; even when they have no power to do so.

Thus let me share the article:

In the days following the Tea Party victory and the overturning of a long time Democrat held senate seat, in the bluest voting district in America if you can imagine, I received several calls from radio shows asking for my take on “the message behind the Massachusetts miracle…”

I see only two important messages worth mentioning…

Anyone wondering what power the people have, should wonder no more

No incumbent is safe…

Republican Party elites think it was a Republican success. It wasn’t…

Democrats think it was another rebuke of old Bush policies not yet remedied by the Obama administration. It wasn’t…

Independents think it was a sign that now is the time to build a third party. It wasn’t…

Tea Party and 912 groups are wrestling for credit, when in fact – the outcome of the election was the net sum result of all of their efforts combined. No one group could have done it alone.

Politicos from the extreme left to the extreme right and all points in between are scratching their heads trying to figure out how to build upon what happened in Massachusetts. But their efforts to make partisan gains from the demise of the “Kennedy seat” might be blinding them to the real message behind the Brown win.

The people are mad as hell and they aren’t going to take it anymore!

The people behind the Brown victory were not Republicans, Democrats or Independents. They were all-the-above, and more importantly, they are all-the-above who are fed up with Washington DC elitism, the vulgar waste of the peoples resources, and the 24/7 assault on individual freedom and liberty.

I have heard the word “constitution” from more lips in the last year than I had in the preceding forty-nine years, combined!

For the first time in my life, Republicans, Democrats, Independents, conservatives, liberals and libertarians are all talking about the constitution, enumerated powers, limited government, and the fact that no matter who is in elected power, the constitution is under assault by the very people who have take an oath to uphold and defend it.

Is the Constitution a Partisan Document?

Do Democrats take a different oath of office than Republicans? Is only one party supposed to uphold and defend the US Constitution and the Charters of Freedom while the other dismantles it?

Eighty percent of what the federal government involves itself in these days is beyond the enumerated powers of the federal government. More than sixty percent of federal spending is outside of the scope and power of the federal government, according to the US Constitution.

The people have finally awakened and realized that their federal government has been slowly but surely bankrupting the nation with a plethora of unconstitutional policies for decades now. They also realize that BOTH parties have played a role in that effort.

In the five years that Republicans controlled the White House and Congress, 2001 – 2006, the national debt increased an average of 6.4% per year, from $5.8 trillion to $8.5 trillion.

When Democrats controlled the purse strings from 2006 – 2008, the national debt increased at an annual rate of 7.6%, from $8.5 trillion to $10.02 trillion.

But in the last year under Democrat control of both the White House and Congress, our national debt has increased from $10.02 trillion to pushing $14 trillion, a 40% increase in just one year, and that’s without passing nationalized health care, cap and trade, amnesty for illegals or any of the BIG TICKET items Democrats still hope to ram through before losing power.

Meanwhile, the nation and world are clearly less safe from international terrorism and “the people” are losing their rights while known terrorists are afforded all of the protections intended for only legal US citizens, under a US Constitution that Washington DC leaders seem to think a waste of paper.

The Massachusetts election was a rebuke of ALL of it!

Do only “conservatives” Love Freedom?

I don’t think so… Even the liberal peaceniks of the 60s loved the idea of individual liberty. Thomas Jefferson was a “liberal,” in the original meaning of the term, in favor of a maximum degree of individual liberty.

Libertarians are liberals with an eye on fiscal responsibility. Most independents are not “moderates” when it comes to the Constitution. They are maybe the MOST concerned with the destruction of our constitutional republic, by leaders of both political parties.

Conservatives are by nature and definition, all about “conserving” the founding principles and values that allowed the United States to become the most prosperous peaceful people ever known to mankind – the Charters of Freedom.

So who is it that still thinks the political left is on the right track in America?

No Incumbent is Safe!

If Tea Partiers were under the illusion that they elected a “conservative” in Massachusetts last week, that daydream ended hours later when Scott Brown announced that he would be stumping for RINO-extraordinaire, John McCain.

As Tea Party darling Sarah Palin was announcing her intentions to campaign for McCain, the US Supreme Court was busy announcing that John McCain is in the business of passing unconstitutional laws. Not a good way to kick off the campaign season…

Even “read my lipstick” sweetheart Sarah Palin won’t be able to save John McCain from the wrath of Tea Partiers, 912ers and town hall goers in Arizona. They have had a target on McCain’s chest since his “amnesty for everyone” days.

So, the message politicians from both parties had better pay attention to is clear.

If you have a history of voting outside of the enumerated powers in the US Constitution, you had better start sharpening up your résumé. Washington DC elitists are headed for the unemployment line.

The people are not mad at the other guy… It’s you they want to remove from office!

Tea Party Explodes Into 2010

Tea Party Rally Washington DC 2009

Early last year, the Tea Party movement was dismissed as a flash in the pan by both leading politicians and pundits.  The movement, however, continued to gain momentum and is now entering 2010 with strength, amazing influence, and a growing following of supporters disaffected with both political parties.  In fact, the tea party organization has become a to-be-reckoned-with force made up of a growing chorus of basically angry voters who are ready and anxious for a leader.

“The tea party movement has the potential to drive public opinion and electoral support in ways that are hard to fully appreciate right now. The American people are angry at both parties, and the tea party movement fills an important void that neither party currently addresses,” said Democratic strategist and Fox News contributor Doug Schoen.

Fox News reported that just this week, many credited the tea party movement for the resignation of Jim Greer, chairman of the Republican Party of Florida whose stances clashed with the movement.

Republican political consultant Matthew Dowd told ABC News he thinks people are making a mistake by trying to downplay the movement, “I think Republicans definitely dismiss this at their peril. I also think Democrats, by trying to marginalize it, underestimate the anger out there.”

The first National Tea Party Convention takes place from Feb. 4 to 6 in Nashville, Tenn. The headline speaker is Sarah Palin and Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., a lawmaker who has taken part in previous tea party rallies, also is expected to speak.

According to Fox News, a 20-day, 42-city road trip that is scheduled to start in March – a cross-country caravan tour called the “Tea Party Express III.”  Organizers are encouraging supporters to get in buses and join them at Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s hometown of Searchlight, Nev., on March 27.

The movement’s Web site states that they hope to “bring activism against Obama’s healthcare plan as well as continued opposition against out-of-control spending, higher taxes, bailouts and the ‘Cap & Trade’ global warming fiasco.”

In 2010, Tea Party activists are ticked off and are teeing up for action. It promises to be a most interesting year.
