Mean It This Time
Let's hope the move for constitutional reform is real this time:
The tea party movement is talking about some important things, such as placing strict limits on the power and authority of the federal government, abolishing the federal income tax and the Internal Revenue Service, and restoring the powers of the States under the 10th Amendment to govern their own affairs more fully without interference from Washington. We heard that kind of talk in 1994 as well, and recall that it led to the "angry mob" dramatically changing the complexion of Congress. What was not sen was the kind of fundamental change we heard political leaders talk about on the campaign trail during that historic election cycle.
