Our victories are only small because we aren’t really rolling back any Socialism, we don’t have the power.

We must roll back socialism and are in the process because we do have the power. Congress critters want people to believe they have the power. Failure to exert our power is failure to restore those powers our founding fathers intended to grant to the people through the Constitution.

“Failure to exert our power is failure to restore those powers our founding fathers intended to grant to the people through the Constitution.”

The Founders GRANTED us NOTHING. They (and we, through them) GRANTED GOVERNMENT some very limited authority to do certain things in our names and on our behalf. POWER NOT GRANTED TO GOVERNMENT WAS (and is) RETAINED BY the people. I agree, power not used is power lost, but all power in this nation flows from the People TO the government in VERY LIMITED amounts. We merely need to turn off that spigot and fire our employees, by whatever means prove needful.

We don’t have the votes to roll back anything that already exists. This is what I meant.

There is already plenty of existing Socialism that we need to scrap, but can’t because we don’t control Congress. So, we are powerless there.

I wholeheartedly agree that we have the power to make the political cost high for anyone that votes for more Socialism, though.

I was merely trying to illustrate how far we have to go. Even if we do stop most of this, they will still add a few increments which may never get rolled back and we certainly won’t cut into that Socialism which already exists.
