Stop Fighting and Voters May Send You Home

This past Tuesday night, an under-funded, long shot TEA Party candidate, soundly defeated the 2nd ranking member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Eric Cantor,  in the Virginia Primary.   This is sending shock waves through parts of Washington.

I think Rep. Cantor is a good man, but his opponent successfully made issues out of amnesty and Obamacare.   So many people go to Washington campaigning to drain and clean up the swamp, but years later they seem to act as if that swamp has become a hot tub.

Republican voters want a real opposition party that will stand up against the demise of our country happening right before our eyes.  They don’t expect to win every battle, but when their representatives appear to stop fighting, voters may replace them.  Mississippi U.S. Senator Thad Cochran recently learned this too.  He has been in Washington since the Nixon administration.
