Seems to be a rare time in American politics when the American people have such negative feelings about Democrats and Repblicans both.
24% of Americans, fewer than 1 in 4, trust congressional Republicans. 1 in 3 voters, view the GOP favorably. Almost half of all Republicans, 45%, disapprove of their party's congressional delegation.
Only 38% of American voters have a favorable view of the Democratic Party.
Is it any wonder then that "tea party" ideals are being so readily adopted and used as a litmus test to hopefully get candidates elected who can return both honor and functionality to Government. Maintaining standards consistant with the Constitution, and founding ideals applied to candidates regardless of party affiliation is the path to getting America back from the brink. The evolutionary process of creating an environment for getting people interested and engaged in learning more history and making independant choices has already started. The Progressive's attempt at usurping power, and ignoring American values is being seen for the danger that it is and God willing the elections in November will mark a date in history when America returns. The world is yearning for this return of American leadership, honor and respect.

Cramer says expect a stock market rally when Brown wins...we'll see . At any rate ,hopefully like at Lexington and Concord, a Brown win on Tuesday will be the turning of the tide and a "shot across the bow" of every politician especially Democrats and Rino's. Conservatives, Libertarians, Tea Party, 3rd Party whatever you want to call them, are getting a foothold to help keep Progressives and their ACORN and Union thugs from putting America under their heel.

Rumors of Dodd retiring to become Treasury Secretary! Now that is scary! It would all be comical if what happened in the last 15 months wasn't threatening the foundation of the country. At least we are not Britain....yet.
Then there is this bit of urgent news.....perhaps if we'd water-boarded instead of Mirandized the underwear bomber we'd have a bit more to go on.....the last time we had to do this was after 9/11 when Postal Inspectors, US Marshals, DEA and Fish/Wildlife agents were filling in.
President Barack Obama has ordered a “surge” of federal air marshals to be in place by Feb.1 in what officials said was a “race against time,” with other suicide bombers believed to be in the terrorist pipeline, although there is no specific imminent threat, federal officials told ABC News.
Under a preliminary plan, the officials said the already existing federal air marshal force of more than 3,200 personnel would be deployed almost exclusively to overseas flights flown by U.S. carriers.
Domestic high-risk flights will be covered by agents from other federal law enforcement agencies who were trained as air marshals in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.
“The personnel we trained back then comprised a kind of reserve air marshal force and they are now going to be borrowed on orders from the President to work domestic flights,” said a senior law enforcement agent briefed on the plan.
