Hawkeye Review: Tremors abound: Are we on the verge of a political "earthquake?"
Excerpted from this post at Hawkeye Review
History is a never ending river of events that flows each day through
and around our lives. Many of us participate, others choose to live
their lives in ignorance. Some swim upstream and others go with the
flow. In recent months, it's those individuals swimming upstream that
have captured the imaginations of a weary and increasingly fractured
electorate. You know the names; Palin, Beck, "Tea-Publicans." I have
two recommended reads for you this morning. First up, the Washington
Post: "For Conservatives, A Political Surge." Next, a post from Erick
Erickson, founder of the influential web site Redstate.com who pens:
"A Very Necessary Republican Civil War." Our republic has thrived with
a dominant, two-party political system going all the way back to our
founding. Yes, the names have changed, but it's now clear that we are
in the early stages of our next political earthquake, which may
transform our political system yet again.
