It’s the beginning of the end of the system as we know it.
There are alarms sounding all around us. Some people hear them. Most people don’t.
Certainly the political class — the statist warriors championing the “isms” (progressivism, socialism, Marxism, totalitarianism) that infest Washington — don’t hear them. Like the hear-no-evil and see-no-evil monkeys, their hands cover their ears and eyes. Not their mouths, though. Evil pours out in everything they say.
The Tea Party protests were about changing the system, but they were just early warning signs. In the beginning, before they were co-opted — some, not all — behind the scenes by the Republican establishment, they were strictly a grassroots movement that sprang up from a growing disgust at the players in Washington. This was in 2008, when Ron Paul supporters were chanting “End the Fed,” and in the first half of 2009, when they were occupying Washington, D.C., and shouting “Kill the Bill.”
