This Congress is going to be one for the history books. Not just because of the GOP’s sweeping wins last November, but because for once we will have an debate about the minimal role of government. The Tea Party centrists (and it is mostly independent libertarians in the movement, no matter how hard social conservatives claim otherwise) will be holding the entire Congress to come address how to best shrink government down to its bare essentials and free the American people to pursue life, liberty and happiness without Big Brother Nag wasting our time and money.
We know the rule from We The People is no new taxes or projects. We know the rule is no more back room trading and business as usual. We know there can be no more hyper-partisanship (let the losing side have a try and creating support, stop being afraid of debate). We know the rule is to cut the deficit and live within our tolerance (not soak us to the point we scream ‘enough!’).
The debate will be long and hard on Obamacare and the silliness of Human-made Global Warming. Pass the popcorn and may the truth win out in the openness of free debate.
