Scott Brown and the Second American Revolution

CNN PoliticalTicker – Poll: Brown makes gains in Mass. Senate Race

There are two ways to topple a tyrant and hold a revolution in this country.  The Founders set things up so we could deal with those ideas and people whose ideas, policies and programs turned out to have more in common with King George than George Washington using ballots.  They’d just gone through the more typical sort, involving bullets, and wanted to make sure the fledgling nation would have a way to do something they couldn’t – solve the problem peacefully.  It’s evidence of their foresight that some 223 years later, it works – and it works well.

It’s only appropriate that the state where it all started – the Boston Massacre, the Tea Party, Lexington and Concord – would also be the place where the second revolution takes flight.  Massachusetts, from your cousin across the country, it looks like we’re going to be able to say, “well done!”

We’ve already seen the Governor races in two typically Democrat strongholds tell the elitists at the nation’s held that they’d had enough already.  But to have a Republican win in Ted Kennedy’s seat will be a clearer, more unmistakable shot than every other to date.  It’s a bonus he’ll be the vote that stalls Obamacare and the other over-reaching efforts of the ruling party; just to have the polls show him leading is a victory.

Of course, the election is still a day away, and anything can happen as the votes are counted.  But let the tyrants beware – we’re out here, we’re watching, we’re voting and your days are numbered.  To all who side with him, beware; we’ll remember in November.

  1. Allow me to be among the first to congratulate Massachusetts for once again being where the Revolution catches fire.
