Time will tell, but I reject the somewhat cynical view that the House Republicans' vote to repeal Obamacare is purely symbolic. I think it's quite significant.
We are engaged in a war to save our nation from crippling debt and systematic assaults on our Constitution and our liberties and to preserve our prosperity. No setback has to become a permanent defeat. But neither will any victory remain secure, for the forces working against us are tireless and relentless.
No matter how many times history has proved socialism disastrous, there will always be those promoting it, as if the past never occurred or its lessons are unlearnable.
All of which is to say that the struggle in which we are engaged has long existed and will continue as long as we are a nation. As such, we must have the long view in mind and not expect that we can always make dramatic changes instantaneously.
Our opponents certainly understand the virtue of patience. They have been pressing the welfare state for too many years to count, forever pushing their unwelcome statist envelope on a freedom-loving society, but one vulnerable to seductive appeals for government-provided economic security.

Its MUCH more than symbolic. Without it, would deflate the sails of the Tea Party. With it, keeps momentum going for 2012 and beyond...
I think David Limbaugh is as good a writer as his brother is a talker. I always enjoy reading his columns.
We now have the Dems in the House [except for three] on record that they oppose repeal. That should be at the top of the list for their Rep challengers in 2012.
darned well better be more than symbolic, or the new GOP
leaders in the House are not long for office...
