During the War for Independence from the British rule, Massachusetts led the colonies. Tuesday night, with the victory of Republican Scott Brown, the revolutionary fires of Boston were reignited; the message is as clear Paul Revere's. But will the forces of socialistic big government hear the message?
The Democratic Party turned the funeral of Sen. Ted Kennedy into a rally for big government and government-run healthcare. Their rallying cry became, "Do it for Teddy." Now the U.S. Senate seat Kennedy controlled for nearly half a century has been turned over by the voters to Republican Scott Brown, who has pledged to fight much of the Kennedy agenda. Those pesky voters have messed things up again. Robert Gibbs described President Obama as "surprised and frustrated" and "not pleased."
What happened in the months after the British march to the Lexington Bridge is history. What happens during the historic weeks ahead is still unfolding. There are four crucial groups who will make decisions in the days ahead deciding the outcome of this battle for the future of America.
The first group we call the liberal royalists. These are the hard-left politicians who have sworn allegiance on the altar of big government. This team is headed by Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. For the past year, while reveling in their power, they rammed the notice down our throats that big government is the solution to every problem facing America.
This group is in total control of two branches of the government. Their goal is an aggressive agenda to remake the U.S. in the image of a European socialist democracy. Thus they have spent $787 billion on stimulus programs and bailouts for big businesses run by their allies in large labor unions and internationalist banks. General Motors and Chrysler were nationalized. Citibank, Bank of America, and AIG are all mammoth financial firms bailed out and now largely controlled by the government.
In addition to these grabs for the reins of private business, they are attempting to take over the healthcare system via nationalization of healthcare regulation and insurance.
They also want to exploit environmental regulations and taxes under the guise of fighting global warming. This will slap government-made shackles on the utility, oil and energy sectors of the economy.
