Congratulations to newly-elected Senator Scott Brown (R-MA)! An incredible victory for Brown, Massachusetts, and the American people! Isn't it ironic that in Massachusetts, where the Revolutionary War began, another revolution is in the works? Against early odds, in a state where Republicans are outnumbered 3-to-1 by Democrats, Brown pulled out an amazing victory. A victory that spoke volumes against the Obama agenda for our country - and Obamacare.

Thanks for that.
I’m so glad Scott won. I’ll sleep better from now on. The threat of obamacare is reduced now.(and many other things too)
It was taken at Meriam’s Corner in Concord.
A little before we came to Meriams hill, we discovered the enemys flank guard, of about 80 or 100 men, who, on their retreat from Concord, kept that height of land, the main body in the road . . . About twenty rods [330 feet] short of that place, the Americans made a halt. The British marched down the hill with very slow, but steady step, without music or a word being spoken that could be heard. Silence reigned on both sides . . .
- Edmund Foster, Reading Minute Man
After brief battles at Lexington Green and Concords North Bridge, Colonists and British soldiers clashed here...militia and minute men coming from the North Bridge fight were joined by companies from Reading. While the Colonists watched from the cover of the Meriam house and barn, British flankers protecting the main column of troops came in to cross the small bridge over Mill Brook. This weakened the British position. Musket shots rang out, beginning a six-hour running battle all the way to Boston harbor. Colonists discharged their vengeance at the British troops along the old highway that is known today as Battle Road.
Remember from history: only 1/3 of the American people fought the revolutionary war; another 1/3 sided with the British against their American brothers and sisters; and finally, another 1/3 of Americans did not care one way or another who fought or won the war!
It is therefore no surprise that “conservative” Americans came out to elect an American who stood on his principles and the U.S. Constitution!
Thank you Scott Brown a true American for liberty!
