'America did not buy ... a very left-wing government'
Liberty Central is a nonpartisan "public square," Thomas explained, and the founding principles are issues every American should embrace.
"I have put away my partisan lenses," she said. "I think there should be a political free market. Both parties should be climbing over themselves to come to these founding principles. We don't care if you have a 'D' or an 'R' next to your name or something else."
Thomas said she believes the federal government has grown to monstrous proportions and that it's time for Americans to reclaim their nation.
"I call it a runaway train. This country is heading for a cliff, and I think we can put on the brakes with enough citizen activism," she said. "Because of the citizen protests, things have slowed down quite a bit.
She added, "You have to take solace in that fact that Barack Obama campaigned on rhetoric that was 'hope' and 'change' and was not as transparent about how far left he wanted to take us. So, that's the good news: America did not buy – hook, line and sinker – a very left-wing government."
The tea-party movement has "greatly inspired" her, and she calls tea partiers "America's political first responders."
"You don't need everybody at the protests, but you need enough to get people's attention who are in public office," she said. "That is what the tea-party movement has done."
Thomas pinpointed repeal of the "Obama health-care bill" as the "No. 1 issue for the fall."
"We can't get to the White House in November, but we can sure send another big signal eroding the support that President Obama and his left-wing agenda have on Capitol Hill," she said.
She's confident Americans can send new representation to Washington – lawmakers who will read legislation, remember founding principles and make the Constitution relevant again.
"There's a big tsunami building in this country," she said. "You're not going to hear it from the mainstream media or Washington because they're in a bubble of their own making. But you can feel it and see it across the nation."
