    Default Eric Cantor, first major casualty of the beltway Republicans.

    So is this the beginning of the draining of the establishment swap, or just a shot across the bow of the beltway moderates? Eric Cantor was taken out by an un-known econ professor, running on fiscal conservative principles. Eric, along with other establishment repbub's like Boehner and McConnell have been basically flipping the bird to the TEA party base telling them, "We will crush you and take you out every chance we get!" Well, looks like the the conservative base drew first blood by taking out the house majority leader. Dave Brat beat Cantor in the primary by something like 10 points, that's an ass kicking! Plus Brat only spent about 1/2 mill on his campaign while Cantor spent about 4 mill. He ran on a VA state TEA party supported platform, but got no help from any national TEA party organization, this was wholeheartedly a grass roots win.

    We in here have been saying the natives are getting very restless for a very long time. I've been waiting and wondering, when are people going to rise up and start taking back control of our country from DC. Every day we wake up only to find we've been butt raped by Obama again with nobody standing up to this assault. I personally think people are pissed and feeling ripped off and violated by Obama, and all of DC. Americans aren't ready to concede to Obama's, "This is the new norm!" vision of America. Too much blood, sweat, and tears have been shed by too many people to let this half black pencil dick worthless socialist, steal our country. So, what's the thoughts from the locals? Is this the start of the revolt?

    I saw that! Now if Mississippi can get rid of that RINO Thad Cochran for Chis McDaniel and if Louisiana can oust Mary Landrieu for some one like Col. Rob Maness, we will be in a much better place!!!

    I feel sorry for those who are stupid enough to actually believe the TEA party is dead. Come November, they'll get quite a wake up call.

    Is it any wonder, if you don't do the job you were hired to do, you get fired! This guy had all the tools but lost sight of the goal! Good riddens!

    One down and many more to go!

    Doc, if you are referring to those Republican's who believe they are invincible, I certainly do not fell sorry for them, as they have no one to blame but their own blind ignorance. The heads of our current Republican Leaders have been stuck so far up their own self serving asses they have totally forgotten and ignored the core beliefs of the Republican Party, and they have forgotten their objective for being elected into office, REPRESENTING THEIR CONSTITUENTS. Dave Brat simply dusted off the core beliefs of the Republican Party and beat Cantor's ass into the ground! Feel sorry for them? HELL NO!

    (From Brat's web site)
    We Believe…



    • That the free enterprise system is the most productive supplier of human needs and economic justice,
    • That all individuals are entitled to equal rights, justice, and opportunities and should assume their responsibilities as citizens in a free society,
    • That fiscal responsibility and budgetary restraints must be exercised at all levels of government,
    • That the Federal Government must preserve individual liberty by observing Constitutional limitations,
    • That peace is best preserved through a strong national defense,
    • That faith in God, as recognized by our Founding Fathers is essential to the moral fiber of the Nation.


    This is the best political news I have heard in YEARS! And I do agree, Come November, they'll get quite a wake up call.

    We now need to impeach Obama for his Constitutional sins and send a message to ALL politicians to make certain our Constitution shall NEVER be trashed by ANY POTUS AGAIN!

    That asshat Cantor spent over $150,000 on Steakhouse dinners. That is almost what his opponent spent for his entire campaign... +-
