The Washington Democrats and a few others better be. As many of you know, Massachusetts held a special election yesterday to fill the Senate seat vacated by the passing of Ted Kennedy. What happened was not thought possible, even just a few months ago. The Democrats lost the Massachusetts Senate seat that had been held by Ted Kennedy for 47 years! MASSACHUSETTS STATE SENATOR SCOTT BROWN defeated ATTORNEY GENERAL MARTHA COAKLEYby a margin of 52% to 47%, with 1% going to JOE KENNEDY who ran as a Libertarian/Independent. Brown is the first Republican from Massachusetts to be elected to the U. S. Senate since 1972. Click HERE for the story.
This is major blow to the Democratic party. Massachusetts is a state where registered Democrats outnumber Replubicans 3-1. It’s obvious there are many Democrats who are fed up with what has been going on in Washington for the past year. Without Democrats crossing over to vote for Senator Brown on a large scale, there is no way he could have won this election. The Democrat majority in Congress has failed to listen to the will of the people on things like the TARP bad debt purchases by the government, the government healthcare takeover legislation, and the spend-our-way-out-of-a-recession to the tune of trillions of dollars “stimulus bill. Democratic voters have seen what has been happening in Washington for a year now, and many have joined Republicans, Libertarians, and others in pushing back against an agenda that ignores the will of the people. Washington should have heeded the warnings of the numbers of attendees at the TEA PARTY protests. They did not. Now the consequences of not listening to those for whom the Washington politicians work have started. It’s not just Democrats who better be listening either. There are some RINO’s with short memories who better pay attention too.

Here’s an example of how fed up mainstream America is with what’s going on in Washington. In this brief post on the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee site, those who are pushing back against the Washington Socialist agenda, & letting their voices be heard as guaranteed by the First Amendment of our Constitution (read it & weep, Washington!) are referred to as a “serious threat.” Good! Scott Brown is running for Ted Kennedy’s vacant seat in Massachusetts, & is reportedly in a dead heat with his Democratic opponent (can you believe it?), District Attorney Martha Coakley.

Republican Scott Brown raised over $1.3 million yesterday from national Republicans in a Ron Paul-styled “moneybomb”, as the radical right wing of the national Republican Party hopes to seize Ted Kennedy’s seat and block health care reform and the rest of President Obama’s agenda.
The tea-party fringe of the GOP is a serious threat and they will elect genuine right-wing radicals if we don’t fight back.
This shows the fight against higher taxes, government take-over of our healthcare system, and spending in one year that has far exceeded the total spent by the Bush administration has gotten the liberal left’s attention. The far left-wing Democrats fear not only this special election on January 19th, but the upcoming mid-term elections later this year. That’s the reason why Obama has not been able to get it through Congress, despite the media’s accusations of Republicans being “obstructionists”. There are more than enough Democrats in Congress for the bill to go through easily. But the problem Obama is having is with his own party. The Democrats know that whoever votes for the government healthcare takeover will likely lose their jobs come election time. The Democrats are why the healthcare takeover has not passed Congress, DSCC, not the Republicans or anyone else.
Brown may not win, but the fact that the race is so extremely close that it is indicative of how angry mainstream America is with what’s going on in Washington. There have to be many Democrats, or now former Democrats that plan to vote for Brown for the race to be this close in a state like Massachusetts. Whether Brown wins or not, the message will be clear: Americans are fighting back using not the court system with carefully chosen cases to bypass the legislative process, but the most powerful weapon there is against a government that is bent on creating a Socialist state with a population forced into dependency on it: THE BALLOT BOX.
