Senator Jim DeMint's gentlemanly air and refined tone belie a power and an urgency in his words. The stately senator from South Carolina sees America's unique centuries-old system of freedom dying out.
And he thinks we may have to take to the streets to save it.
"I would think it's time to start thinking about peaceful demonstrations," he told us last week.
"The power of the people is there. Freedom is in the people's hands right now, and it's about to slip through."
Of course, the recent "stimulus" debate is what's fresh on DeMint's mind. Despite DeMint's putting 15 aides on it overnight, no one in Washington was able to read the bill, which was the most expensive in American history -- as well as being perhaps the most irresponsible.
The worst since the adoption of the income tax, DeMint figures.
"People don't need to look to Washington. It's the people's government. And the people are going to have to take it back. They can do it with their voices and with their votes -- and they may have to do it with their legs. People are going to have to show that they're not going to take it anymore."
By "legs," he means what you think he does.
Noting the tactics of left-wing organizations such as Code Pink, which like to send handfuls of noisy people to a lawmaker's office, DeMint suggests such things do get the attention of congressmen and senators.
"I think some of these folks might think twice if they had several hundred people standing outside one of their state offices asking, 'What in the world are you thinking?' "
If that doesn't work, there's plenty of room on the boulevard.

In the next part of the dream, I saw that a great explosion had happened at Cheyenne Mountain, home of NORAD, and several million had died from effects of radiation.

Everybody is already all over the internet. Just like the 100's of threads here.
There are sites from one extream to the other. People wrote, spoke, called, emailed and the Govt does not care what we say.
This is the next step, it's a little more forceful.
Non of us except for extremists want the step after that.
Not that we wont take it that far.
It's long past the internet, unless you got some magic skill's to shut the Govt. down unless they listen.
