Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

Just when you thought nothing could stop Congress from sucking another sector of American life and our economy into the dripping maw of government, a spark of hope.

Scott Brown, the Republican candidate for Massachusetts’s open U.S. Senate seat, won.

I’m sure I’d disagree with many of the senator elect’s opinions. But his campaign was based, loud and clear, on his promise to vote against the Democrats’ overblown, misguided, quasi-socialistic healthcare plan — a compelling enough message to propel a Republican to victory in a very Democratic state.

What now? Well, hopefully we are going to stop the big government juggernaut. That is, unless Democrats start playing some very dirty pool.

Will it be the kind of dirty pool MSNBC talk show host Ed Schultz endorses? In the final days of the campaign, Schultz bragged on his radio show that if he were a Massachusetts resident he’d cheat at the ballot box to stop Brown. “[I]f I lived in Massachusetts I’d try to vote ten times. . . . Yeah, that’s right. I’d cheat to keep these bastards out. I would.”

It’s not unheard of, in politics, for politicians and even activists to go off the deep end, foreswearing principle for the sweet smell of partisan success. But I bet one reason Brown won was that he represents the kind of above-board probity that Schultz and far too many in Congress — Democrats, and Republicans, too — utterly lack.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

    Mr. Jacob, the following is a quote from your article.

    “Well, hopefully we are going to stop the big government juggernaut. That is, unless Democrats start playing some very dirty pool.”

    My God, “Start playing”??? The Ds have been playing the rottenest pool I’ve ever seen since Obama’s election. They openly, and behind closed doors, exclude ANY Republican input. Then Obama crows about how open and non-partisan the process is.


    Time for a REAL change!

    Dear Paul: What a NATONAL DISGRACE Ed Schultz is! If my kids were ever listening to his stinking show, I’d wonder what I should do first,–turn it off or cover their ears! After centuries of Democratic prevarication, MUST they CONTINUE…their dishonesty with scoundrels (IMO) like Schultz, who seems to “channeling-Hoffa (–with no insult to Hoffa)!”

  3. Jack says:

    That comment from Schultz is further reason to never watch MSNBC again. I don’t know of a better place to be lied to.

    Don’t get too excited over what Brown will do in the Senate. Remember, the Republican Party did not come to Mass. to help him nor send any big names. Earl Warren was a good Republican who jumped ship after Eisenhower appointed him to the Sup. Ct. Brown says he will work to solve problems, not exacerbate them. With 59 votes in the Senate for the Democrats, the GOP must filibuster to stop bills they disagree with. That only emphasizes the GOP as the party of NO. Will too many NOs lead the GOP to be the party of anarchy?
