How To Avoid A Full Scale Revolution

As I said in an earlier post, I'm disgusted with the politics as usual in D.C.

If "Hope And Change" meant, literally, buy senatorial votes at an alarming rate, give away disgusting deals, ignore the will of the people and basically trample on the United States Constitution, Hussein is living up to that promise - and then some.

Imagine the shady, backroom Chicago style deep-dish democracy going on in Washington with all these "Nay" votes miraculously turning into "Yay" votes.

I spoke to McQ from, and, running it by him how scared I truly was. I said: I'm scared - though prepared - for a full scale revolution against this current "president".

He's doing everything in his and Pelosi's power to circumvent the
Constitution to ram legislation you and I will have to live with for
the remainder of our lives.

I personally can't stand for this. I thank god every day there exists
people like Scott Brown in the senate - because he strikes me as a guy
that will hold his ground - but Dennis Kucinich will not and has
already signaled he is on the take.
and he summed it up quite nicely:

You use the process until the process is of no more use.

What the Democrats are doing is politically stupid. They could have their cake and eat it too - just back off, say "we hear you", start over, involve the Republicans and get both health care reform (the GOP says they're willing) and preserve their majorities. They'd also buy a lot of good will with the American people. Instead they're on this insane path of using trickery, stupid accounting tricks, strong arm tactics and kamakazi politics to pass a deeply unpopular bill.

They lose their majority in the House this go round and unless the GOP is totally inept, they lose the Senate and White House in 2012. What bloggers and the like have to do is keep the fire lit and keep the pressure on - both parties. Can't afford to let the GOP go it's usual way and squander a golden opportunity. Focused and deliberate - with a plan to stick with principle instead of the usual devolution into Democrat lite.

The benefits don't kick in until 2014. All people will know to that point are the increased taxes. It's not like a Republican Congress and White House will be taking any benefits away from anyone - just the taxes. Repeal should be a piece of cake and with Democrats insisting that reconciliation is something to be used as often as they like, the vehicle will be in place. Naturally the caterwauling by Democrats will be epic, but if the spine implants the GOP has received take, they should be able to turn the same nonsense on the Dems as they're being subjected too now.

Poetic justice is what it's called.
