Beware of the Long Knives

Well I have not said anything about Scott Brown and the Massachusetts Senate Race. Frankly I get tired of all the bickering back and forth, all the predictions and all the punditry. Now that it's over, I'm glad and I'm relieved. This one event may have saved the United States from socialism, at least for now.

You can bet the long knives will be out and on the prowl. The liberals don't give a damn about the will of the American people. They will rather try and force their socialist/communist agenda down our throats and change America forever. For so long they tried to do this by stealth. As Rush Limbaugh says, "Liberals cannot tell the truth about who they really are...".

This year however they came out of the closet. In bold moves they have tried to steal away everything that has made this country great. They had a liberal leftist president, a huge majority in the House, and a super majority in the Senate. I guess they thought they had a socialist mandate and I guess they thought they could just ram anything through as they saw fit. I guess they thought Americans would not notice.

But, to their chagrin, Americans began to see liberals as they really are, and droves of us said, "NOT NO, BUT HELL NO!"

Brown's victory in Massachusetts is more than a referendum on health care. Indeed it is a referendum on the liberal, socialist, communist left. We all know they won't give up. They may have to resort to their old and more familiar ways of "getting things done" by stealth and smoke and mirrors. I suspect efforts will arise to demonize and delegitimize Scott Brown.

Brown did do a couple of things during his acceptance speech that bothered me slightly. First he thanked John McCain. I have nothing against McCain personally, but is this a signal that he, like McCain, is going to be willing to "cross the aisle" and "work with Dimocrats" to "get a bill" and "get things done"? I hope not.

He also mentioned that he would work with Dimocrats to reform health care.

Scott, you do not want to be a senator like John McCain. McCain is a RINO. These are the people we need to get rid of, not embrace..............I know, I know, he was just being nice to the old geezer.

Scott, we have the greatest health care system in the world. It does not need to be REFORMED. To say this is to agree with the premise set forth by the Dimocrat left. I would rather he had said, "We have the greatest health care system in the world. Unlike the left, I do not believe it needs to be reformed. I agree there may be some areas in need of repair. I pledge to work to find free market solutions that benefit all Americans and protect the Constitution of the United States, not trample it."

Why could he not have said that? Wouldn't it have been great?

Scott, you were elected because you espoused conservative values and principles. Don't lose your vision and your direction. Good luck and watch out for the long knives.

PS. I hope Ted Kennedy is rolling over in his grave. Kennedy was definitely a booger in the nostril of freedom and liberty. As far as I am concerned, he does not deserve praise. We are for sure better off without him.


  1. I had a twitch at the back of my neck today when Scott Brown was visiting with the other Senators in Washington. He again praised McCain, talked about working across the isle. . . I hope it's just nice talk on his first day at school, trying to make a good first impression. . . . and that's all it is.

    But that twitch is still there....

    Right Truth

  2. Yeah, I just don't understand this irresistable urge to cross the aisle and just get along. If I were in congress I guess I'd be the most hated SOB in the chamber.
