Elections Sent All Politicians Message to Shape Up

Friday, 06 Nov 2009 04:38 PM

By Richard Viguerie

Election results this week disproved again the periodic pronouncements from Republican and Democratic politicians, lobbyists, and consultants that the conservative movement has vanished.

Although it's true that many conservatives have left the Republican Party, when given principled candidates to support, they enthusiastically volunteer, donate, and vote.

The results should be seen as an anti-incumbent election. Establishment politicians — Republicans and Democrats — should know that the voters are angry and no longer content to remain uninvolved.

The comfortable, establishment politicians of both parties should get ready for a serious primary challenge from angry tea party activists and grass-roots Americans who are no longer accepting an attitude of “business as usual.”

All politicians should see the results as a cry from previously uninvolved Americans as a “send-them-a-message” election, with a lot more on the way.

And look out, President Obama and Pelosi-Reid Democrats. The American people are trying to get your attention, and the 2009 election is their first response to your big government agenda.
