I’m glad that the elections are finally – FINALLY – over. It’s my view that, as some wise person once said, if elections ever solved anything, they’d be outlawed by our “leaders.”
Maybe that’s why those leaders would like to tell us that nullification is “illegal” – because it can actually work.
It’s my belief that liberty will never be handed to us by politicians – close or far. It will only be taken by our own very actions, our own agitation in defense of it, and our own sacrifices made in support of it.
We’ve got a long way to go, and a lot of work to do. But the time to act is today – not tomorrow. Will you help us spread the message of liberty today?

It's far from over, Michael. Within days, the lobbyists will be calling on the newbies and giving them glimpses of blank checks. This is the beginning of a new awakening, where people come to realize that no party out of Washington will ever adequately represent the working class. It is too corrupt there, and not even the Tea Party candidates will be able to resist it. Just wait and see.
I encourage everyone to carefully scrutinize what occurs over the next few years and to see who gets all the pecuniary benefits. Of course, with the gridlock in place, the newbies will at least be able to try to shift blame as always. But watch what passes and what does not. In both cases, I think we'll see the same old corporatism and catering to deep pockets, while the working class is largely ignored or told to be patient and wait for the benefits to "trickle down."
