Great piece in the Washington Times Communities regarding the Tea Party movement.

In the years to come, as President Ronald Reagan was known as “The Great Communicator,” will Barack Obama become known as “The Great Divider?” It is a crucial question for Barack Obama and his place in history. However, there is another related question – a question that is perhaps even more important and fundamental that Americans are now asking themselves. Does the U.S. Constitution still mean anything? In the wake of the passage of Obama’s healthcare reform – a bill so unpopular that Congress had to resort to a budgetary ruse called “reconciliation” to bypass normal Constitutional requirements – it is a natural concern.

To answer that question, there is no need to ask the pundits, the poll takers, the Ivy League scholars or elite New York sophisticates. Stay still for a moment and listen. Open your eyes and watch. See and hear what is taking place around you: everyday Americans standing up to a government that is attempting to dismantle the very ideals and governing principles put in place by our Founding Fathers. Ideals immortalized in the U.S. Constitution. A Pledge of Allegiance said by school children at the start of each day. Dreams reflected in patriotic songs and heart-warmed tributes to the things we hold most dear.
