Debbie "Wasserman Test" Schultz and the liberal left love to giggle over the Tea Party. Well, yesterday some folks down in Virginia just sent a powerful message to RINO apologists like Eric Cantor...they elected a Tea Party candidate who has pledged to fight like hell against amnesty for illegals and a little budget discipline. And if you don't think defeating the House Majority Leader ain't a big deal, you're dreaming.
Back in January Congressman Cantor hosted a plush little get together to plot Republican strategy for 2014 and beyond. He said we need to put these Tea Party folks in their place...and we need to work with the President to pass immigration reform. So he and House Speaker John Boehner held all kinds of closed door meetings and were working hard to pass a pathway to citizenship for 30 million illegal invaders.
Well, at least a small pocket of American voters yesterday said they don't think that's such a great idea...that we need to care about American jobs and American borders. That we need to put a stop to home invasions and anchor babies and wage suppression and welfare for illegal aliens and explosive Hispanic crime.
No matter what happens in the next few months, no matter how many Tea Party candidates win or lose, you can drive a nail in the coffin of immigration reform this year. Those RINO congressmen, including Paul Ryan and John Boehner, have gotten a strong message. Pass amnesty at your own peril.
So who defeated the establishment? A humble economics professor who can add two and two and knows where are borders are located. Cantor spent more than $5 million dollars while Dave Brat spent $122,000. He had nothing going for him except the truth and "the right."
As you know, I've written often that I believe the Tea Party is simply the front line troops, the small rag tag army that fights hardest for America, just as that first Tea Party did 250 years ago and just as Washington's rag tag army defeated the mightiest army on earth!
And no matter how much the liberals giggle, no matter how hard they try to portray the Tea Party as a bunch of right wing nuts, I believe the Tea Party represents our best hope for the restoration of America.
I hope Dave Brat goes to Washington and acts like a "brat." I hope he throws a tantrum along with the other 86 Tea Party members of Congress every time Obama asks for a trillion dollars in deficit spending and every time Harry Reid calls for amnesty for those invaders who are destroying us.
Viva the "Brat!"
