If this current trend continues, we will be known as the generation that restored liberty to America.
It is the general entitlement attitude; of “who can get me more free stuff” that has given us elected officials like our current Washington administration. We need to change the attitude in order to change the elected leaders.
Are we changing the attitude? Check out this current story “Americans Have Never Been So Unlikely To Re-elect Their Congresssmen” http://dailycaller.com/2014/01/25/americans-have-never-been-so-unlikely-to-re-elect-their-congressmen/ The story claims that just 17 percent of registered voters think any member of Congress deserves re-election.
Alas, the tide is changing!

McConnell’s Troubles with the Tea Party
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is a fifth-term senator from Kentucky. He is the minority leader in the 110th Congress and sits on the Senate Appropriations Committee. He currently is in a heated primary with challenger Matt Bevin that will be decided in the upcoming Kentucky Republican primaries on May 20th, 2014.
McConnell seems to demonstrate time after time that he is no friend to the Tea Party. McConnell’s big problems began when according to Breitbart, during a conference call organized by Karl Rove’s Crossroads organization for large donors and their advisors in October, McConnell stated that the “Tea Party was nothing but a bunch of bullies and you know how you deal with schoolyard bullies? You punch them in the nose and that’s what we’re going to do (McConnell: Tea party ‘Bullies’ Who Need Punch in Nose, 2013).” This may have been in response to Tea Party Nation withdrawing its support for McConnell in early October citing a “hugely revealing” report by Glenn Beck that McConnell had allegedly referred to tea party senators as traitors. (Tea Party Group Withdraws Endorsement of Mitch McConnell, 2013).
The opposition to McConnell’s primary campaign is continuing to grow. Adding to McConnell’s tea party problem was the recent announcement that Freedom Works endorsed tea party-backed Kentucky businessman Matt Bevin in his effort to unseat McConnell in the state’s Republican primary (Freedom Works Backs Tea Party Challenger to McConnell in KY Primary, 2014). McConnell’s hostility toward the Tea Party is why hundreds of Tea Party activists from neighboring states are coming to the Bluegrass state to assist with toppling McConnell (Tea Party Sets Its Sights on Mitch McConnell, 2014). McConnell may have antagonized the wrong group of patriots.
