Yes we did.

The most amazing part about being a tea partier these days is the ongoing, never ending projection by the left. I am constantly being told what I believe and think by people who don't have a clue what I believe or think.

The rallies may be over but the tea party continues to grow. Our values are the same today as they were in April 2009 when Rick Santelli made his call to arms.

Either we will save America or it will be done.

I think we'll save it, Jane, although it's definitely not a sure thing.

No question about the lefty projection, but let me ask you. Can you think of anything they say or any position they take that is anything other than a vehicle for advancing government (progressive) control?

Health care reform: Do you think liberals care in the slightest about anybody's health? While they grab off one sixth of the economy.

Poverty: Lefty poverty programs have proven to be the surest way to keep people in poverty. They need poor people who provide the excuse for keeping themselves in power, which leads to...

Illegal immigration: As standards of living have risen over the decades, progressives have been running out of poor poeple. So much so that they've been trying to import more of them through illegal immigration.

Global warming (Oops, Climate Change. They're no longer sure which direction the temperature is going.): It's a scam by lefty elitists to impose wealth redistribution on an international scale while milking the private sector by selling carbon credits.

And the list goes on. I guess I'm saying we better save America!

I actually don't think it is that thought out or sophisticated. I think, since Clinton, the only thing most of the diehards on the left are, is anti-right. They don't care if they lose freedom, as long as the right loses. They don't care what the policies are as long as the left opposes them. It's pretty pathetic.

You make a good point, Jane. But there are progressive leaders and progressive followers. I know first hand of some followers that don't care what's true, they just want to win. I had a conversation with one of them who told me, coincidentally, that he became a hard core Democrat when Clinton was impeached. He was nonplussed when I said that Clinton was, actually, convicted of perjury and disbarred.

But I digress. I'm convinced that progressive leaders do think these things through and that they pick their positions and their words without any regard for what is true or what might actually work as a policy. It only depends upon whether or not it will sell with the followers.

Actually, I think progressive politicians prefer programs that don't work. Government programs never go away. And when they don't work the solution is always to give them more money. The stimulus wasn't big enough, you know. Expanded programs are constituencies that keep progressives in power to feed the insatiable beast. Progressive leaders know this. I'm convinced.

I don't know if the whole Tea Party saw it, but enough did. Which is why the soi-disant progressives are hell bent on demonising it. They are quite right to see the Tea Party as the enemy, and a relentless one too. But their game plan outs them as devoid of integrity, and in the end, that will finish the statists.
Seen from the point of view of young idealists, it's cavaliers and roundheads all over again. The cavaliers have the glamour but the roundheads have the principles. And it was the king's head finished in the bucket.

We can certainly hope so, John. And with Obama's poll numbers going the way they're going we can hope with at least a small degree of confidence.
