The following article appeared on the American Thinker web site on November 13, 2012. It compared the patriot victory at Concord Bridge to the results of the 2010 elections. According to the article, tea party patriots are now at Valley Forge following Obama’s re-election.

The U.S. House of Representatives, run by Republicans, passed a budget in 2011. The U.S. Senate, run by Democrats, has refused to pass a budget, even though it is its legal responsibility to do so.
It’s time to take control of the Senate from the “do nothing” Democrats. Continue reading
