The Rand Paul – Tea Party Message to Democrats AND Republicans

Rand Paul

Rand Paul

Rand Paul’s victory was the single most important event in yesterday’s primary buffet. This morning, the Democrats have decided that this is somehow a repudiation of Republicans. In some respects, this is true. But not all Republicans.

When Republican Minority leader Mitch McConnell decided to endorse Paul’s opponent, Trey Grayson, the torch of the big spending Washington insider was passed into Grayson’s waiting hands. The result was devastating.

But the joyful noise from the left at McConnell’s candidate going down in flames is a direct response to McConnell’s history of embracing the big spending, debt expanding, social spending of the left. McConnell is seen by many Conservatives as one of the more liberal members of the Senate – a RINO. Hardly something that should make a Progressive’s heart go pitter-patter. THE VOTERS LIKE PROGRESSIVES EVEN LESS!

Message to Democrats: your big spending days are over. The repudiation of McConnell was actually a repudiation of left wing policies espoused by McConnell. McConnell and Grayson were simply surrogates. The target was Obama, Pelosi and Reid. There is nothing good for Democrats in the McConnell smack down.

But on the other side of the coin, Rand Paul is a candidate that excites Conservatives. He may be the head of the freshman class of New Republicans.

Those in the mold of McConnell, John McCain and Lindsey Graham, not to mention the herd of RINO’s in Maine, are an endangered species. Their willingness to abandon Conservative principles in the name of bipartisanship will be their downfall.

We see the Tea Party effect most clearly when the Republican Party offers a true Conservative like Rand Paul. The clear message to the “old guard” of the GOP is hop aboard the train of true Conservatism or you will be run over. The Tea Party is not a third party, yet! But they do exert a massive influence on both parties, but especially the Republicans.

The Tea Party has no use for the way things are and the way things used to be in Washington. Their only concern is for the way things must be if we are to survive as a free and prosperous nation.

The Senate would be perfect with 99 more Rand Paul’s. Then we need only clean the House.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
