The Massachusetts Miracle

19 Jan

Congratulations Senator-Elect Scott Brown!

Virginia. New Jersey.  Now Massachusetts.

How’s that Hopey Changey stuff workin’ out for ya?

Will the President and the Democrats in Congress finally get the message?  The American people do not want your brand of socialism.  We don’t want your brand of health care.

You didn’t listen to the town halls. 

You didn’t listen to the Tea Parties.

Listen now, hear the roar of the voters.

With all due respect, it’s not the Kennedy’s seat, it’s not the Democrats’ seat, it’s the people’s seat.

U.S. Senator-Elect Scott Brown, Republican, Massachusetts

Indeed it is.

    Say something original for once.

    Honestly, Brown was the best candidate in the race by far. I think the biggest message from this and the McDonnell’s election is that voters don’t tolerate incompetence and poor leadership. These Republicans won because they appealed to the independents. That is what the GOP needs to take from these, independents are the path back to power, not the tea party. Brown is a pro-abortion politician who voted for universal health care, not your typical tea partier.

    Brown’s election was not the biggest news this week, though. What do you think of the legislating from the bench by the Supreme Court in Citizens United v. FEC? Where is it in the Constitution or the Framer’s intent that corporations are people and that money is speech? This ruling is only going to strengthen the grip of special interests on our political process.

    No, Scott Brown is not a Tea Party conservative. But the reality is he couldn not have won without the energy from the Tea Party folks and Republicans across the nation. True, Coakley ran a miserable campaign, but that alone did not defeat her. And while Brown is not pro-life, he does support limits on abortion and opposes the pro-abortion provisions in the Senate health care bill. More than anything this is a rejection of politics as usual. And those paying attention will realize that the alarm bells are also ringing for squishy Republicans.

    As for the SCOTUS decision, it is quite frankly a victory for free speech. That’s what the framers intended.

    You can call it free speech, I call it more money from corporations and special interests to buy votes on Capitol Hill.
