Will the GOP Takeover Give Us Back Our Liberties?

In last week’s column I predicted that since the Republicans won the Senate, there would be little for true Conservatives to rave about. All the back-slapping and high-fiving one might see would be no more than a futile momentary palm-stimulant. That the Republicans who had won the Senate would keep their baby-soft, hairless chests well drawn in even though they had given the Democrats a solid trouncing.

Mitch McConnell proved me a prophet.

Mark Levin noted on his radio show that it didn’t even take 24 hours for the ever putty-buttered Senator from Kentucky to let Obama and the pummeled Democrats know that they have no need to fear the new wielders of the gavel. Can’t you just see it? McConnell tapping lightly on Harry Reid’s door, peeking his nervous smiling face around the mostly closed door, politely asking in a timid voice,

Uh, Mr. Reid? Just wanted to ask if I could step into the podium now . . . I mean, if it’s okay, you know, like when you’re done with it. No hurry, take your time. After all, I won’t try to hog it. I realize that it’s your’s just as much as it is mine.

Hold on . . . sorry, my stomach. (ahem)

Now that the Republicans have control of both Houses, McConnell boldly told the Main Stream Media,

“there won’t be a government shutdown.”

Oh. Ahhh, okay. Well, at least Obama and the Dems know where the new Senate kneels.

Telling the opposition that whatever they do, they won’t have to worry about the GOP’s iron fist coming down on them is just what I expected the new and improved Congress to do.

John Boehner said that if Obama moved on amnesty with executive action it would be like, “waving a red flag in front of a bull.” Confused simile not withstanding, a more apropos line might be, “like waving a feline paw in front of a mouse.”

The House can stop any and all executive actions by any President in any situation at any time. As I said in my last column, all they have to do is withhold the funds. That’s it. No money, no implementation. Simple as that.

“Just say no.”

If the Establishment Republicans were as vitriolic and aggressive against the Democrats as they are with the Tea Party, we might be able to have more success on Capitol Hill.

Perish the thought!

When speaking of Obama’s veto power, we have the new Senate leader saying in halting trepidation,

“I’m not sure he’s going to sign everything.”

Really Mitch? You’re not sure he’s going to sign everything? Wow. That’s weird. I thought you were sure he would sign everything. I mean, why wouldn’t you be sure of such a idea? Hmmm . . . guess I was wrong. Thank’s for clearing that one up for us.

Let’s cut to the chase. The next step in taking back our country is to get rid of all those big government, Progressive types that want to hold onto centralized power with no interest in getting us back to independence and the We the People freedoms that have been trampled upon lo these many decades.

I’m talking about they guys who just won.

If we can get rid of Lindsey Graham, John Boehner, Olympia Snow, John McCain, and Mitch McConnell and their ilk, like we just did the Leftists, and replace them with Ted Cruzes, Rand Pauls, Mike Lees, Sarah Palins, and their ilk, then we just might find ourselves on the road to recovery.

The Republicans won. Great. We have both Houses. Wonderful. We won’t have to hear Harry Reid’s irritating contralto anymore. Fantastic!

But that’s just the beginning.

A week ago, we went from PeeWee Herman to George Constanza. But if we are going to go up against Alfred E. Newman over the next two years and Nurse Ratched in ’16, we’ll need a John Wayne to head up the fight.

I know, I know. Fat chance, right?

Fine. For now, we’re stuck with what we’ve got.

But with much prayer, a focused vision, guts and God’s help, we’ll have another internecine changing of the guard. And little by little, there’ll be more and more true Constitutionalists taking our nation’s legislative and administrative offices.

Can we get back to the free society Of the People, by the People, and for the People that we were given generations ago by our Founding fathers?

Only time will give us the answer to that one.

I know the GOP won’t!
