If Hillary gets the prize for best rehearsed performance, then Illinois Republican Mike Bost gets the prize for his 2012 passionate and off-the cuff-tirade, while on-lookers would be rewarded for least emotion or response to such an outburst.
Apparently, when presented with a 300 page bill and given only 20 minutes to review it and vote on it, Rep. Bost went into a passionate display of aspersion expressing his frustration, anxiety, disdain and apparent contempt with the system that has taken over our legislative branch. What was in the bill? That isn’t really the point. The point is that it’s about time someone stood up and said what Americans have been thinking all this time as we have begun to more closely watch what this government is and has been doing for so long. The point is that more and more of our legislators are standing up for the American people! As hopeless as everyone is (myself included), fighting this battle for freedom every day, it’s refreshing to see this type of thing happening on the floor on the Hill.
I may be a bit late, but I’m going to call Rep. Bost’s office in Illinois and thank him for his outrageous outburst and I hope you all will do the same. People like Rep. Bost give me a glimmer of hope that maybe there are people serving in DC who love Americans better than their jobs. (Shortly thereafter I’ll tell him that America is not a democracy, it is a republic, which is something that anyone who works on the hill really ought to remember!)
Folks, just as we can’t spend our way out of debt, and we can’t lie our way to the truth, we also cannot bring America back up to by tearing her down. The best and probably most effective way to inject enthusiasm, strength and a powerful spirit into this great nation which is nothing except for her people, is to lift up those who are willing to shine light on the corruptions and bring truth into dark places. I think it will be a worthwhile cause to call, write, email or fax these representatives who stand up for us and let them know we are on their side. Let them know that they too, are not alone.
