Townhalls - What A Difference a Year Makes

Abigail and Dolley readers has it occurred to any of you that this summer has been relatively quiet on the Town Hall front?  Compared with last year's headline grabbing rants, rages, and smack downs this year has seemed relatively tame.  There are a couple of reasons for that: primarily, embattled Congressmen have avoided them like the plague.  Some may suggest it is because people are disengaged and no longer care.  I think the exact opposite is true, people are so far engaged they are no longer talking to those who will not listen.

The protesters of last summer are the candidates and volunteers this summer.  They are in Washington this weekend for the Restoring Honor rally.  They are volunteering at their local candidates offices.  They are blogging and sharing articles with their friends.  They are more involved and informed than I have ever seen in my lifetime.  Ordinary folks have turned off CBS and tuned into PJ TV.  They are mobilized, informed, organized, and ready to reassert a Government, of the People, by the People, and for the People.  A Government of laws and not men.

The Political Class takes the calm at the Townhalls and their disregard of the Citizenry at their own peril because come January they will be coming home to live amongst us again, fortunately for them, we no longer Tar and Feather.
