All too often, as our Founding Fathers also warned us, once in power, the "well" and "good" part tends to take a backseat to the "govern" and "master" part.
The TEA party has been a major factor in reminding those we elect where the power really lies, and any elected lawmaker who continues to dismiss us as "astroturf" does so at their own political peril. The 112th Congress plans a "live reading" of the Constitution on the House floor Thursday morning, and if you ask me, it should be beamed into EVERY classroom in America so that our children can know that their well-being is NOT dependent upon any elected official or entitlement program, but is only limited by their desire to achieve and to succeed!
Regarding the Constitution reading, David Limbaugh of Townhall.com summed up the best: "The...liberals' end-justifies-the-means mentality, which, as we are witnessing, is a green light for tyranny and a smothering of liberty and democratic principles in the name of promoting them. Their arrogance and mockery just serve to confirm their disrespect for our founding institutions. More importantly, they underscore the enormity of the stakes involved and strengthen our resolve to politically defeat liberals and crush their systematic assault on our liberties."
