Big Win for the Thomas Jefferson Club

The Thomas Jefferson Club (TJC) started with a couple of people sitting around a table discussing the state of the country and, more specifically, the state of Bucks County. The decision to try to do something about the political situation may have seemed at the time to be nothing more than tilting at windmills, but the tenacity of those few individuals proved to be invaluable.

One of the first goals of the TJC was to inform people about the local political scene and to get people involved in stopping the tide of the Obama agenda. Patrick Murphy, voting in lock-step with that agenda, was an obvious problem and the TJC put him at the top of their list for attention.

Last night, that attention paid off with Mike Fitzpatrick’s knockout win of Murphy. Although Fitzpatrick was not considered the ideal candidate by the TJC, one of the main goals was to unseat the sycophantic Murphy, and they never lost sight of that goal. Working closely with the local Tea Party Movement, they provided the necessary awareness and information to Bucks County residents that convinced them to remove Murphy. In the end, it was a landslide victory.

Kudos are due to the TJC’s president, Jeff McGeary, for providing the leadership, vision, and tenacity that inspired others to get involved. It is often said that one man can make a difference, and McGeary proved it to be true. His energy and convictions provided the impetus for many to decide to get involved.

The TJC will probably not get the recognition it deserves, but it was surely a huge factor in unseating Patrick Murphy. Mike Fitzpatrick gets that seat, but the TJC was the real winner. It proved its worth and it will continue its efforts to safeguard the American ideals that are at its core. No politician or political party gets a free pass from the TJC. They have to earn it.

    While everyone is patting themselves on the back. . .let’s give the candidate credit for putting together a campaign, making an intelligent case against Murphy, raising money, attracting support from all corners– and winning. It takes more than a band of conservatives to win an election. Think Ronald Reagan. It takes an electable candidate. Think Christine O’Donnell.
