The “sleeping giant” has awakened and has stated its purpose as “taking America back” from the special interest groups and politicians that are moving the nation away from a sovereign republic governed by elected representatives of the people guided by the original intent of the Constitution of the United States.

The Tea Party movement has a unique opportunity during this election year to use its energy to take back control of American institutions that should be serving the people and are now serving the special interests of the central government. Tea Party activists are stepping forward to become candidates for public office and are supporting candidates and incumbents who have a record of service consistent with the provisions of the Constitution.

The “handwriting is on the wall,” 2010 is not going to be a good year for RINOs.  In case you have not been paying attention, RINO is a liberal, moderate or progressive politician that, in order to get elected in a conservative district or state, places an “R” after his or her name, runs in a Republican primary election, and becomes a “Republican in name only” (RINO).

The Republican Party in its effort to become a powerful force for good government was willing to compromise principles in order to gain majority control of the South Carolina State House and Senate and both houses of Congress in Washington, D. C. Republicans not only accepted Democrat office holders into their party, but encouraged change of party label in order to add numbers and become the majority party.

The Republican Party has the greatest opportunity in a decade to change national, state and local government for the better this year. However, there are perilous obstacles along the way that could derail the opportunity and become disastrous for both the party and the nation. An objective look at recent history is beneficial to understand the current situation and plot a way forward.

A large influx of social and fiscal conservatives became involved in the political process during the 1980s through organizations such as the Moral Majority and Christian Coalition. The “Rockefeller” style, country club, establishment republicans distrusted these energetic newcomers, but eventually found a way to harness their energy and build a powerful political movement that eventually controlled the White House and both houses of Congress.

It’s election year. We have a radical in the White House, revolutionaries in control of the Congress and a large segment of the electorate is confused. That makes for a dangerous mixture for law-abiding citizens who don’t particularly care for excitement of the violent variety.

A large segment of my generation don’t even watch violent movies; we saw enough carnage in Korea and Vietnam to last a lifetime. We sympathize with the troops trying to fight a war when the civilian leaders are not interested in winning and don’t have the courage or the integrity to admit it. We detest a civilian population that is disinterested in national defense unless they have a son or brother whose life is on the line in Iraq, Afghanistan or elsewhere.
