The Quiet Anger

Today on American Spectator, James P Gannon has an excellent post about America’s Quiet Anger.

There is a quiet anger boiling in America.

It is the anger of millions of hard-working citizens who pay their bills, send in their income taxes, maintain their homes and repay their mortgage loans — and see their government reward those who do not…..

I do agree that there is anger, but it is not as quiet as it was just a few years ago.    We have long been the Silent Majority, but no more.   The Tea Parties, The 912 Group, and many others are giving everyday people their voice.   I do not remember at any time in my life when so many people joined in the cause of Liberty and Freedom as I have when I went to the Tax Day Tea Party on April 15 of last year.   An estimated 15,000 people crammed into Keiner Plaza in downtown St Louis, and neither the Cardinals, Blues or Rams won a national championship.

But as James states:

Most of the angry are not out marching in the streets, waving signs or shouting into bullhorns. And they are not smashing windows or phoning death threats to politicians. They are simply waking up angry in the morning, and going to bed angry at night. And their resentment is multiplied by the media’s efforts to portray them all as dangerous, crazy people, and by the effort of certain Democrats to tar them with brush of violent intent….

The sheer arrogance of Obama and the Democrats forcing the Health Care Bill, and now Obama has recess appointments in the dead of the night, even against his own party, shows how out of touch Obama and the Democrat Party have become.   In every poll before the Health Care vote, the majority of the American public did not want this monstrosity passed, but still they passed Obamacare.

Make no mistake though, The Republican Party is not absolved of this anger.   When they had the reins, they spent like sailors on a bender in Bangkok.   We need better candidates to vote for on the Republican side, and have more people get involved.   My friend, Cold Warrior,  has been touting his Precinct Committee Project, so Liberty minded people will get involved and take back the Republican Party.

The quiet anger is building and more and more are not staying quiet.   We need more people involved and taking the rein in local politics.   Yes blogs such as RedState, The Minority Report, and many others are doing a great job to get the word out.   But we need more than just talk.   And the PC Project is a perfect example of what everyone can do to help get this country back.   We must use this anger in a positive way, and make a better tomorrow for this country.
