WASHINGTON, March 14, 2014 – Last week at CPAC, Texas Gov. Rick Perry energized the crowd by opening his speech by saying that what we need is a little revolution.
It’s time for a little rebellion on the battlefield of ideas. – Gov. Rick Perry
Although it is unlikely that everyone in the country heard that speech, Americans are fed up with big government overreach and are beginning to foment a little rebellion on their own.
The Founders feared “tyranny of the majority”—the kind of thing we’re seeing from radical Democrat legislators in Denver today and in Washington D.C. before the 2010 election. But what this country as a whole is experiencing is a tyranny of the minority. A minority of perhaps 12% of the population have captured the commanding heights of the government, the press, and academia and are asserting their will on the majority.
The other 88% of Americans don’t like that very much.
