After Texas talked the talk, Oklahoma is walking the walk.

This is very interesting to me. It shows that a large segment of our population is starting to feel out of touch with the fools in Washington. As Obama continues to take the nation down a path many of us do not want to go, more and more people are finding ways to express their frustrations.
A perfect example of how out of touch liberals and Democrats have become is Colin Powell. How far and fast this man has fallen. He is in serious need of an enema. (Sorry, I can't help myself with the Colin/colon jokes!)

Read this part especially:
"The Republican Party is in deep trouble," said Colin Powell, former secretary of state for one Republican president and chairman of the joint chiefs of staff for another, speaking this week at a conference in Washington sponsored by Fortify Software Inc. The party has to reconcile with the fact that the mood of the voters has changed, he said: "Americans do want to pay taxes for services... Americans are looking for more government in their life, not less."
So Powell thinks we want bigger government not smaller government? How out of touch is this thinking? Well, here are some interesting poll numbers:

A USA Today/Gallup poll found that 55 percent of Americans say that 'big government' will be the biggest threat to the country in the future.
So Colin appears to be speaking out of his, well, colon. (Sorry, I told you I can't help it!)
With opinions of people like Obama and Colin running counter to the opinions of the American public, you will see more actions like we are seeing in Oklahoma, and hearing more rhetoric like we heard out of Texas. People are getting fed up and they aren't going to take it anymore. That is what the tax day tea parties were all about.
To Powell, and "Republicans" of his ilk, I'd like to echo what Rush Limbaugh said yesterday: take a cue from Benedict Arlen Specter and become a Democrat.
