when some conservatives deem it necessary to ridicule the efforts by other conservatives to make their (and by extension, our) voices heard against this massive expansion of governmental intrusion into our lives.
Case in point, Rick Moran from Right Wing Nut House . Mr. Moran's views on the recent 'Tea Parties' that have occurred over the past week or so are dismissive of the results, so disdainful of the efforts, that one must ask a simple question...why?
Mr. Moran, is it because these parties were started not by the elites in Washington? Is it because it was not started by the Country Club Republicans? Is it because it was not started by the Rockefeller Republicans? Is it because those who started these protests are just the common, every day type folks?
Mr. Moran pontificates that these protests amounted to a small turn out, and thus, should be dismissed as not worthy of anything except derision , but he misses the point entirely. The point is that we have had conservatives across the nation that are not willing to put up with being silent, and have decided to do something about it. And where does Mr. Moran stand on this issue?
I think his haughty, closing remark will suffice.
"When you get some money, organization, professionalism, and a little more realism, come back and see me."
