What happened to the fire?

It seems almost forgotten but in the summer of 2009, conservative were angry. They were on fire. They demanded representation. They demanded government accountability.

Despite handing Republicans a congressional landslide in November 2010, are we really better off now? 

The things that outraged conservatives in 2009 are still with us. We're just further down the road. What seemed threatening then is closer to reality today. Obamacare is law. The federal debt continues to surge higher. But somewhere between then and now, the fire of a grassroots resistance has died down considerably. 

Do you think there's any chance government will begin fixing things if we go back to sleep?
