The Republicans are leaderless and impotent, with little support for the party nationwide. The media have continued their near unanimous worship of Obama.
- Yet Obama can't get his healthcare legislation passed.
- Forty-nine percent of Americans disapprove of Obama's job performance, up sharply since he took office. 52% disapprove of his ideas on healthcare.
- Obama was publicly called out in Congress by Republican Joe Wilson. Although the Democrats voted to censure Wilson based on their party strength, Wilson received over $1 million in donations to his campaign after his outburst.
- The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives voted to defund Obama's support group ACORN.
What the heck is going on? It can only be attributed to one thing -- the power of the tea parties, the townhall protests, and the massive anti-big government protest in Washington DC on September 12. The voices of angry American citizens have scared the crap out of politicians.
If for no other reason, our voices need to be raised even more. Politicians need to be afraid of the electorate. They must be reminded that their phony-baloney jobs depend on us. For the next thirteen months, America's citizens must be heard in Washington. The loudest message must be sent in November 2010.
