The final nail was driven into the coffin of the Obama agenda on Thursday night by a Reno, Nev. grandmother.
Look to Nevada on the evening of Nov. 2 to see the power of the historic tea party. After spending over $20 Million defining Sharron Angle as radical, extreme and dangerous, if Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid loses to this tea party grandmother, then you can bet it’s all over for the Obama agenda.
The big government, pro union, anti/business socialists (aka Democrats) will be going down to landslide defeats all across the country.
Starting on Nov. 2, Nevada will be known as the state that fueled the tea party citizen revolution.
It all started earlier this week when Sharron Angle announced she’d raised a staggering $14.3 million in the third quarter — the second biggest haul in the history of American politics.
I’d have given a million dollars to see the faces of Reid and his campaign managers when they heard the news.
Then came the big Thursday night debate. Reid had painted Angle as ignorant, radical, extreme, and dangerous. Yet the grandmother from Reno came across as credible, sincere, honest, and filled with common sense.
She stood toe-to-toe with the United States Senate majority leader and never flinched. The line of the night came from Angle when she stared down her opponent and said, “Man up Harry Reid.”
Harry Reid, the man who has carried the water for the Obama socialist agenda of tax, spend, and bankrupt America, is the one who came across as radical, extreme, and dangerous.
Sharron Angle showcased common sense in proving that wanting to lower taxes and allow people to keep more of their own money isn’t extreme.
Angle proved that wanted to reform and personalize (partially privatize) a failing Social Security system is not extreme.
Angle proved that wanting to reform education and eliminate the bloated Department of Education to bring the money back to Nevada, where local parents can decide what’s best for Nevada’s children, is not extreme. Wanting to keep the status quo for a disastrous public education system that is miserably failing our children, now that's extreme.
Most extreme of all would be re-electing the man who dug a $100 trillion dollar hole of deficit, debt, earmarks, bailouts, stimulus-to-nowhere, and unfunded liabilities that threatens to destroy the American dream for our children and grandchildren.
It was on Harry Reid’s watch that America went bankrupt. Could anything be more radical, dangerous, or irresponsible than sending him back to the Senate?
Earlier in the day my good friend, Eric Singer of the Congressional Effect Fund explained on The Fox Business Network that throughout history the best investment strategy is to buy stocks when Congress is out of town.
You heard correctly.
For the past half century, when Congress is in session, the stock market is up about 1 percent. When Congress is out of session or on vacation, the stock market is up over 17 percent. Since 2000 the market is actually down 8 percent when Congress is in session (much of that time presided over by Harry Reid), and up 9 percent when Congress is out of town.
Moral to the story? Elitist-lawyers-turned-politicians like Reid aren’t saving us when they create new laws. They are damaging the U.S. economy and the American people.
Eric Singer didn’t know it, but he was proving why Harry Reid should be retired. During his debate, Harry proudly stated again and again how important he has been to Nevada and the country. How many rules and regulations he’s passed to "save" us all. How many jobs he’s “created” by spending our money. How government helps us all in so many ways.
Singer’s facts prove that we need to stop Harry from helping us. With friends like him, it’s no wonder our children and grandchildren owe over $100 trillion dollars. Please stop helping us Harry. We can’t take anymore of your help.
The common sense of a tea party grandmother is just what the doctor ordered. We need a tea party “citizen politician” who says “no” to more spending, “no” to bailouts, “no” to bigger government, ”no” to higher taxes, and “no” to digging the hole deeper.
The final zinger of the night from Angle: “Senator Reid, how did a poor boy from Searchlight Nevada become a multimillionaire on the government payroll?”
How indeed Harry?
On Nov. 2 Nevadans will fire a shot to be heard around the world: “HARRY REID, YOU’RE FIRED!”
