‘Non-Violent Coup,’ Part of Larger Intolerant GOP Narrative

“This is a damn outrage,” a disgusted David Brooks, the faux conservative columnist for the New York Times, declared on Sunday’s Meet the Press reacting to Republican Senator Bob Bennett’s loss Saturday at Utah’s Republican convention which chose two others to compete in a June primary for the seat. Brooks fretted he was punished for being “a good conservative who was trying to get things done” by “bravely” working with Democrats on health care and supporting TARP. “Now,” he repeated, “he's losing his career over that. And it's just a damn outrage.”

Hey Brooks it is about the people taking control. The people are tired of the “insiders” calling the shots. Take your whining and go sit in the corner.

Mr. Brooks, may you and the so-called newspaper you work for end up at the business end of either a poodle or a parakeet.

LOL... love the Waaahmbulance pic.

Was watching Fox news this morning and a Bennett interview... the pathetic loser was crying on camera. How sad. He ONLY got to serve far too long. Now what is that poor man going to do with himself? Poor poor man. Take your lifelong health and pension and go buy yourself a fishing pole.

A "career"? That's the problem. Serving as "the People's" representative was never intended to be a "career." The Founders intended representatives to return home and live under the laws they enacted, no more, and no less.

Under title of "The future of democracy in America" at UVA's web site containing quotations of Thomas Jefferson, appears this statement from Mr. Jefferson:

"If we find our government in all its branches rushing headlong... into the arms of monarchy, if we find them violating our dearest rights, the trial by jury, the freedom of the press, the freedom of opinion, civil or religious, or opening on our peace of mind or personal safety the sluices of terrorism, if we see them raising standing armies, when the absence of all other danger points to these as the sole objects on which they are to be employed, then indeed let us withdraw and call the nation to its tents. But while our functionaries are wise, and honest, and vigilant, let us move compactly under their guidance, and we have nothing to fear. . . ." --Thomas Jefferson to William Duane, 1811. ME 13:29

How could Jefferson envision "our government . . . rushing headlong . . . ." or, "violating our dearest rights, the trial by jury, the freedom of the press, the freedom of opinion, civil or religious, or opening on our peace of mind or personal safety the sluices of terrorism"?

Certainly, America's Founders intended "the People" to "watch over" (Jefferson) their elected officials, and recall them when they did not do "the People's" will.

This is not the coup. The coup began in 2008, and the enemy has been consolidating power since then.

This is the counter-coup.

Hey Bob,rejection hurts don’t it.Bet it doesn’t hurt as much as the realization that millions of people in this country have that their grandchildren will struggle to pay off the debts that you and your pals saddled them with.So Bob just fade away gracefully.

If this is how Brooks feels, I wonder how he’ll feel this November??? If Palin runs/wins in 2012, Brook’s head will explode.

“he's losing his career over that.

And it's just a damn outrage.”

Bob chose poorly, now didn't he David?

And, btw, David, 'we the people' don't elect politicians "to a career!"

What a concept, eh David?

And, get ready for some more outrage, you moron.

. . . “bravely” working with Democrats on health care and supporting TARP . . .

Now this RINO can bravely find a new career, one in which he does less damage to the free world than he did with TARP.

No, Dave! The outrage is the Berkely Prof, member of La Reza, which I believe receives tax payer money, telling students (probably mostly illegals) that they are standing on Mexican soil stolen by the US and they are in the revolutionary vanguard to take it back.

Oh, that is just sedition and anti-govt. bombast incitement to riot, etc. MSM haven't let out a peep that I have heard. It is all about that awful Tea Party and the danger from them.

These people are so irrelevant to more than half the population, sealed in their own little bubble.

Dave, wake up. The people have spoken. That’s all that has happened here and that’s what our system of government was designed to accommodate. Maybe it’s time for you to investigate why this happened instead of complaining.

You know what drives these RINOs and Leftists crazy? The fact that the TEA Party has no one leader!

This fact makes us a very politically dangerous opponent to these Statists!

Get used used to Statists and RINOs! We’re not going anywhere...EVER! We’re everywhere!

Okay, a 76 year old politician wants to go for his 4th 6th year term, after promising to serve only two terms. Bennett’s been in their 18 years and his voters haven’t seen any improvement in the Federal Government in that time. He’s supposed to get 6 more years to fix, what he didn’t fix in the first 18 years? Where’s the beef?

Public service....I always thought that was an odd name for what politicians do.

“These men (government officials), in point of fact, are seldom if ever moved by anything rationally describable as public spirit; there is actually no more public spirit among them than among so many burglars or street-walkers.”

I prefer the word ‘restoration’. We’re going about the task to restore a constitutional, limited government federation, which the DC elite has been trying to dismantle for a century.

We need to have a pause here.....

The citizens come up with a new set of rules for those they elect to office.

Republicans vote on Tuesday, Democrats vote on Wed......:)

And if your are on welfare / any Fed teat right now.....

YOU CAN'T VOTE!!!!!!!

No Feeders, only Workers are allowed to vote on the rules of conduct.
