BARBER: Reagan uprising isn’t over yet
‘Racist’ accusation doesn’t stick to Tea Party stalwarts
“What do you suppose holds together those three legs of the stool?” he asked. “Do tell,” I replied. “The seat,” he said. “And the seat, which is sustained by all three legs - a strong defense, the free market and traditional social values - is where we as Americans can rest steady.”
“What does the seat signify?” I asked. “The seat represents those certain unalienable rights granted by our creator, addressed in the Declaration of Independence and enumerated in the U.S. Constitution. The seat is our individual life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, bound together by faith in God and love of country,” he concluded.
Indeed, the ongoing Tea Party uprising is a monumental grass-roots clamoring for a national return to Reagan conservatism. Reagan conservatism is merely an extension of the fundamental principles held near and dear by our Founding Fathers.
For those wishful thinking “progressives” and lukewarm RINOs who imagine that the Reagan revolution is over, I say it’s only just begun.
