Every once in a while, we are fortunate enough to witness an inflection point, a point when the course of events actually could have gone either way and history is forever different as a result of the outcome. I think that our children may well look back on January 19, 2010 as one of those inflection points. I have watched with great interest the building momentum of the Tea Party Movement and have stated in this blog that while I doubted it could become a political party, it could certainly become an ideological foundation for conservative policy and politics. What Scott Brown demonstrated is that now every single incumbent seat in the House and Senate, whether Republican or Democrat, can be key to taking away forever Washington's ability to reach into our homes and wallets and the lives of every American for any reason they deem necessary. That is the fundamental change that we want and that we desperately need. That will be the legacy of the Tea Party Movement. The ordinary Americans that make up the Tea Party Movement represent the needs and values of all who work and sweat for a living, pay their taxes, and provide for their families with what is left over. They represent the taxpaying citizen that struggles under the oppression of a massive federal government, a government that spends and spends with no limit in sight, and thinks that it knows better than we the best use of our hard earned dollars. Mr. Obama, the Democrat party and even Republicans that think they can carry on with business as usual, spending away our future and making deals, and behaving as though the principal objective of their employment by the people is to win the point rather than to benefit the citizens of this nation had better take a long hard look in the mirror. At the end of every day in office going forward they should be looking in that mirror and asking themselves "did what I do today take away from the citizens that elected me?" Because for those that answer "yes," their time in office will be short.
