The End of the Beginning?

The last not quite two years have been exciting.  The Tea Party movement has grown from protests and rallies and inundating Congress with phone calls, e-mails, and visits about pending legislation, to getting real fiscal conservatives elected to Congress.  We brought the foundational principles of Constitutionality and fiscal discipline and the issue of mounting debt [...]
