On November 2nd, according to PJTV, over 80% of "Tea Party" backed candidates won. This election was indeed a major shift in the political landscape, and many of us might consider it a significant victory.
But, if we all go back to our lives as usual, nothing will change. History has shown time and time again that left to their own devices, elected officials will fall prey to lobbyists, political action groups, or large corporations. The pressure on our politicians to compromise their principles is incredible.
Freedom groups, such as our 9-12 Project and Tea Party organizations, must continue to play an important role in our government moving forward.
At our next meeting, we will discuss plans to stay in touch with our newly-elected representatives, and remind them of their constitutional duties, which must take precedence over the goals of their party, or their individual re-election plans. We must act as a constant reminder that principles matter, and provide an important counter-balance to the forces that seek to diminish our liberty.
Time permitting, we will also be presenting more movies, which everyone should enjoy.
This meeting will also be the last one of this year. I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone the best for the Holidays, and for the coming New Year!
