Grow up, Troll
New England Republicans, dismissed as a vanishing breed after a string of congressional losses, are now thinking comeback.Tapping a deep vein of voter discontent over the economy, jobs and President Barack Obama's health care overhaul, the GOP has a reasonable shot at capturing a handful of House races in the six-state region."I think people are ...

The problem is that Schiff is getting no support from the Republican 'powers that be,' who want more of the status quo, and their GOOD OLD BOY network power, which Schiff is definitely not on board for!
Please join the Independence Caucus (free, all volunteer network of common sense Americans)---which definitely needs more good grassroots folks working to help replace the "compromised incumbents"---especially in states like NY!
Please spread the word about ICaucus, to like-minded friends who believe in "Limited government" the Constitution, and candidates with INTEGRITY and PRINCIPLES!

In Sunday's CT Post (of a few weeks ago) was a superbly written opinion piece (letter to Jim Himes) written by Robert W. MacGuffie (a leader of the grassroots movement in CT). I recommend reading and pondering the entire letter at the link below.
Here is an excerpt from the beginning:
"In defense of a nation that is slipping away"
..."The United States of America was founded as a Constitutional republic with the adoption of the Constitution. As we all know, the states which created the federal government did so reluctantly and enumerated limited powers to the federal government, reserving all other powers not enumerated to the states and the people.
"Make no mistake about it, Congressman, our movement vociferously objects to the relentless advance of federal power at the expense of the states and their citizens -- that is the central driver of this movement."...

We have some excellent conservative Republican candidates in Connecticut. One of my favorites, seeking the Republican nomination for the 4th congressional district (Fairfield County) is Rick Torres. Rick has earned the endorsement of the Independence Caucus ( www.icaucus.org ).
Here is an excerpt from a letter that candidate Rick Torres submitted (as a reply to a Frank Rich column of March 28 "The Rage Is Not About Health Care") to the NYT.
"No, It Is Not About Health Care" by Rick Torres
..."The grass-roots Tea Party movement, and the conservatives and libertarians in the Republican Party, have made it abundantly clear from what we want to take our country back: the tyrannical growing government. America was founded on the ideals of Liberty an inalienable right of an individual to be free from coercion by others. It is to secure this right that the government is instituted among us. The Founders knew that governments tended to grow and overreach, and to usurp power. It is to protect us from such a government that the Framers gave us the Constitution enumerating limited federal powers. This is why it is so important to demand that the government adheres to the Constitution. This is why the government has been circumventing the Constitution.
"For the first 140 years of our nations existence, from 1776 to 1916, the non-defense federal spending amounted to just over 1% of the GDP one percent! During that period of time, the United States had grown from a nascent, marginal country to the worlds economic and military superpower. In 1916, the federal government was spending some $147 per person in todays dollars! Ushering in the Progressive Era, Woodrow Wilson increased the non-defense federal spending to 10% of the GDP. Calvin Coolidge, perhaps the last of our Founder-like presidents, rolled this spending back to under 2.5%. It has been rising ever since. Today, it is at whopping 22.5% of the GDP. Again, excluding spending on the national defense. And before Obamacare.
"With all its bloated, unconstitutional programs, Big Government is tramping on our liberty and hampering our prosperity, all the while trapping millions in perpetual poverty. Indeed, to fund itself, the government is first confiscating our wealth, and the wealth of the most successful [productive, entrepreneurial, lucky, greedy whatever your point of view may be] members of the society making sure that they create fewer jobs for the rest of us, invest into fewer enterprises, and deliver fewer ingenious products and innovations to us all. Then, having paid itself and its political allies, the government uses the left-over money to reward people for doing a poor job, or for not working at all. The liberals and Big Government like to congratulate themselves on the fine work they do on behalf of the 'underprivileged,' whoever a latest victim group might be. But in fact, all they do is remove an incentive for people to help themselves, to succeed and prosper keeping them enslaved on government 'largesse,' in perpetuity. Frederick Douglass said,'People might not get all they work for in this world, but they must certainly work for all they get.' Booker T. Washington said,'Nothing ever comes to one that is worth having, except as a result of hard work.' He also said,'No greater injury can be done to any youth than to let him feel that because he belongs to this or that race he will be advanced in life regardless of his own merits or efforts.' It is the liberals and their patronizing, profoundly racist policies that have led to an utter destruction of the black family and community. By contrast, it is our side who want to welcome everybody into the liberty and prosperity of the free-market capitalism."...

How many R's are there now in the entire NE? 0, 1, 2? So, if the R's pick up 1 or 2 seats, they will call it a tremendous victory.
Trouble they have in the NE is that the more educated a voter is, the more likely it is that they vote D.
So - if you're stupid you vote for the R's. If you are smart, you vote D.

No, if you believe in BIG GOVERNMENT, taking more and more of the "fruits of the labors" of OTHERS---"wealth redistribution" iow, then you vote D.
If you are a RESPONSIBLE, hardworking TAXPAYER, who wants prosperity and opportunity for ALL, NOT government confiscation and taking away LIBERTIES, then you vote for *conservative* Republicans!

Except, it was a RETHUGLICAN administration that expanded the size of the government to historic highs.
You see, all that "small government" bullchit is just that - bullchit.
