Tea Party Rules Now


November 2nd was an historic day. America stood up and said “NO!” Led by the grassroots, common-sense-driven tea party movement, Americans said loud and clear, “We want jobs, less spending, lower debt, individual freedoms, and a free market economy!” The election was a clear repudiation of President Obama’s policies.

The question now, will the president and Congress listen to “We the People?”

Furthermore, will Obama do what is best for America or continue to force his radical agenda on America? No doubt, we will get answers to these questions during the lame-duck session of Congress.

During the next 2 years, average Americans, especially tea party members, will be watching.

If we do not like what we see, there will be more changes in the 2010 election. Hardworking Americans will no longer sit on the side-lines and be silent.
