Senator echoes Tea Party rally cry – ‘People have to show that they’re not going to take it anymore’

Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., a staunch opponent of the federal government’s increase in size and spending legislated by President Obama’s stimulus package, has issued a call for Americans to stand up – literally – and take back their freedom.

“I would think it’s time to start thinking about peaceful demonstrations,” DeMint said in an interview with Georgia’s Augusta Chronicle. “The power of the people is there. Freedom is in the people’s hands right now, and it’s about to slip through.”

Disappointed by the outcome on Capitol Hill, DeMint is now calling on the common people to resist government actions he sees overflowing constitutional bounds.

“Really, I think the hope right now is not in Congress to make the right decision, because they’re not,” DeMint says. “It’s just whether or not the American people are going to stand up and say enough is enough.” Read More

The senator is correct, the American people has to stand up and take our country back.

  1. you have to admit, Bobby Jindal was humorous, porous and gaseous – he looked like a little boy in a grown man’s suit…you could not help but laugh when he was through

    goodtimepolitics: And you will have to amit that Obama lied yet two more times when he said that there was not any earmarks in the last $800 billion spending bill and no earmarks in this next Budget bill. Also his speeches are getting very boring because you will have to agree that he says the same old things each and ever time.
    The stock markets was away down again today after Obama,s speech so they must not of liked what they heard from him. Plus you will have to agree that Obama’s rating has fell below 60% for the first time today! The empty suit spoke again last night A.j. 🙂

  2. “Porous”? Jindal was “porous”? This “A.j.,” he is too subtle for me, I think.

    The reviews mostly agree that Jindal came off badly, probably because he was trying to be folksy when, in fact, he’s a total brainiac and doesn’t do folksy very well. He’ll catch on. People would much rather he be himself.

  3. What!! Bobby Jindal was truth and intelligence. What is so great about a blabbering liar who can smile as he lies and draws in all you emptyheads.

  4. I will have to agree on the side of rightlady on this! I like the truth over lies, I like the honest over being a crook and I like being down to earth person over a person that thinks he’s God Almighty!

    Jindal did great within the background he had of talking into a camera compared to obama talking to a group of people.

  5. Budget TRICKERY noted. This is mainly for econo-geeks, but, for those of us who like this sort of thing, it is the sort of thing we like. New tax revenue is overestimated, new spending underestimated. I do not think we can take this Obama fellow at his word.

  6. And, on the windfarm front, the NRO crew remind us that the Obama’s harebrained CARBON reduction scheme amounts to a huge tax increase (you’ll pay for it via your electric bill, most painfully) that is not included in advertised budget figures.

  7. I say Obama is against America and what it stands for, just look at what he is doing! I don’t trust him one minute! The congress better wake-up cause they need to stop all this spending before we go bankrupt!

  8. This is the big question. Is Obama simply simple, or does he consciously plan to destroy the country? On the Right, our job is the same, either way — to stop him, by arguning the issues in Congress and in the court of public opinion. But people on the Left ought to be wondering whether they’ve elected a dope or a dynamiter. The more prudent course for “remaking America” will depend on how they answer.

  9. I think the first thing you do is borrow a Civics 101 textbook from your local neighborhood high school sophomore. You cannot recall a member of Congress and/or the President.

    Get a life. Get a clue. Buy a vowel.

  10. I think the person was talking about impeachment larrys…and yes that can be done! You’re so smart larrys or at least you think you are! Maybe you need to learn alittle about government!

  11. You folks are idiots. You, who supported Bush, have supported fascism at its finest. Your propaganda is outdated. Look for solutions to unite, not divide.

  12. Can you say Tax and spend Liberal Obama there Mike Smith and make it sound like 3.2 trillion dollars is what we the Americans people need to owe in taxes! Do you have something hot running up your leg?
