They’re Our Children Stupid
We love our children more than you love them. So don’t be telling me what to do with them.
We know what education they need to get ahead in this world.
We don’t want the education you give them that only seems to let you get ahead in your world.
We are just as fed up with funding a failed education system as we are at funding and enabling bad financial decisions. We love and respect our children enough to demand they do the work necessary to succeed.
Why do you expect us to demand less from our paid officials? What should we demand of our government?
We’re tired of suffering fools easily.
It’s time to suffer them hard.
We don’t want to saddle our children with Trillions in debt so we can get bigger government.
As John Boehner was called disrespectful when he threw the 1,000 page stimulus bill on the floor of the Senate. He said in effect he respects his children and grandchildren too much to do anything else.

----From CPAC hat tip to Politico.-----
I wish I could get Boehner’s whole speech. The above was just the beginning. He was just getting warmed up. I thought he gave one of the best speeches of the Conference. He was fired up. Of that there was no doubt.
CPAC has been an uplifting event for me. I think like others that I was alone in what I thought and believed. To see and hear from all the people I’ve looked to for leadership was heartening. I felt better, I felt maybe we can do something to change things after all. I am not alone.
Two college age women were singled out by CPAC to receive the Ronald Reagan Award. These ladies echoed my feeling. When accepting the award, they said that they were inspired when they attended a previous CPAC to go back to college and speak their mind. They were tired of being bullied by teachers and students for their conservative views. They thought they were alone until the went to CPAC.
They decided to sue Georgia Tech over their speech code. After I believe 4 years they won.!! They were not alone. They picked up support from other Conservative groups along the way.
We have friends out there. We just have to work harder now to find them. We have been beaten down for so long, that the wheat is being separated from the chaff.
In our own way at the local level we take inspiration from the likes of those two young ladies. From any individuals going against the grain because of what they believe. Whether they win or not.
Across the country “Boston” Tea Parties were held protesting the stimulus bill and big government in general.

We must shed our reluctance to do such “activist” type of things. We join civic groups like the Lions etc, we donate to foundations and worthy causes. I think it is time that we start to blow our own horn and take our heads out from under the bushel. It’s time we become a little more proactive.
Perhaps we need to stand up for our beliefs, in public. We through CPAC and other events are starting to generate a much needed “in your face” Republicanism. I think people will respect that.
I’m proud to be a Republican, I think it is time to tell the world.
