Ruling Class Versus the Tea Standing Up Republicans Party for America by Sal Giarratani Next year's presidential campaign is up and going so far in advance. Leaders in both parties are trying to steer their groups in the right direction. The internal battle grew more turbulent after the upset of 2010 when the Republican Right took over control of the House. Four years later, Republican voters grew strong enough to hand the Republicans control of the Senate, too. However, as members of the Tea Party outsiders grew embolden, it appeared the Republican House and Senate leadership started backtracking on their promises to take back America. Most Republicans and conservatives thought that with John Boehner and Mitch McConnell in charge that the rollback of the Obama agenda would begin, but what most Tea Party Republicans saw was weakness. Republicans caving in on every count. When Harry Reid ran the Senate, he always got what he wanted. Now that Harry Reid is minority leader, he is still getting what he wants. Where are the Republicans in charge? Many folks truly believe that there is a rtfling class in this country. I am talking about Hollywood, Wall Street, Madison Avenue, Big Corporations, Big Unions, Capitol Hill, Democrats, Republicans are all on the same page. Some think we are at a tipping point as far as being a constitu- tional democratic republic. Many voters are frustrated and have simply given up voting since no one listens to them anymore. As my friend Mark told me, I just listen to sports talk radio, in a comfy chair and await the water taking over his living room. He pretends he is coming up to the end of his cruise on the T/tank. Don't WOITy, Be Happy, you should not be. But look around and see why there are so many Marks out there sounding like Jeremiahs feeling the approaching doom. Many out there feel a sense of doom and we have a choice, give into the doom, or take it on. I will take it on because I am an American and this is my country and yours, too. Don't be like Mark. Remember the Battle of Bunker Hill. Remember the Alamo. Remember Pearl Harbor. Remember 9/11. Sing along with Lee Greenwood, "God Bless the USA."
