Sometimes we seem to be very close to winning an agenda item only to see it slip away into the maws of big government. This theme came up on more than one occasion in the Clermont Tea Party meeting last night. (The Principles, Nullification, and Right to Work Ohio.)
We wonder why, but the answer is really quite clear, even if repugnant to us. One of our tenets is Constitutionally Limited Government. This principle is not only an anathema to the people in Washington, it is construed as a threat. And this includes most of the allegedly “conservative” Republicans that view government as the end all – be all, and who endlessly strive to expand it – and thereby their own power. Tonight’s poster boy for at least attempting to wrest defeat from the jaws of victory is John Boehner. His selection of a chief on immigration is a clear signal that he (and presumably the house leadership) is prepared to completely cave in on Amnesty. Read the Red State article details here.
Yeah, I hear you, and no, I don’t know what exactly to do at this point either. I do know that we have to be contacting our congressmen (and women) to urge action against Amnesty for Illegals. Not PC? Tough.
I also know that there is going to be a primary challenge to Boehner. Get behind the challenger. It is about all there is to do. If Amnesty goes through, we may all need Spanish language IDs for the next election………
