I am encouraged by the events unfolding in Massachusetts. Should Brown win it will be a moment much like a bunch of liberty loving citizens who had had enough of an overbearing force and began their revolt at Concord. Now perhaps comes the beginning of the Second American Revolution where the same spirit opposed to tyranny stops the assault.
Ted Kennedy was the epitome of the socialist left that longed for power concentrated into the hands of an elitist oligarchy, going so far as to bestow a pseudo aristocracy upon a wealthy local bootlegging kingpin's family. The People's Revolution was not fought to throw off one form of tyranny in exchange for another.
There is a certain justice, that with the death of the prince, the shot be fired by his successor from his empty throne. The shot that comes to be seen as the point where the American spirit re-emerged letting those who have corrupted that spirit know:
WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF YOUR BS ! NOW LISTEN TO US DAMMIT !
