Tea Party Growing

The Tea Party Movement is growing and it's gaining momentum. According to the New York Times, 18% of all voters identify with this movement. They interviewed members of the Tea Party Movement and these are the reasons they gave for participating (CLICK HERE)!

The mainstream/state-run media continues to consider the Tea Party movement to be a race-based political movement - and all non-white people who identify with the movement are branded as "traitors to their [respective] race". It's one of those they continue to sling out there - but it doesn't wash. It's about Socialism, not skin color, gender, or sexual orientation, religion, or national origin. Most Tea Party people believe that ILLEGAL immigration is a problem -- because it's ILLEGAL. It's not aimed at people based on race.

For the most part, people who relate to the Tea Party Movement feel that the heavy-handed regime of barack hussein obama with a clear and unambiguous socialist agenda is able to ignore constituted laws, is hijacking the political process and is moving against Constitutional concepts, replacing them with nationalizing and socializing at will.

At the Santa Ana Tea Party gathering yesterday, one speaker questioned the US Government's motives in pursuing Toyota Motor Company for defects in some of its cars that resulted in recalls. Since the US Government owns General Motors and Chrysler, Toyota is its direct competitor. Therefore the US Government's motives in actions (clearly a conflict of interest) can not be challenged since both the Congress and the Executive Branch of government is under the sway of the obama regime.

Those who identify with the Tea Party Movement believe that chief executive of this nation has worked hard to alienate our allies and has worked equally hard to court those Communist Nations (Cuba, Venezuela, etc.) and radical Muslim Nations (Libya, Iran, etc.). They do not believe this agenda is in the best interest of the American people.

They do not want ObamaCare, not because they are heartless, but because it's simply not the government's place to absorb 20% of the US Economy under its direct control. It is not in keeping with the spirit of free enterprise or the principles that have guided us. The US Government has bankrupted every major entitlement program it's embarked on. EVERY -  SINGLE  -  ONE. Members of the Tea Party Movement believe that a healthcare bill that was far less than 2,400 pages, had been read by people who voted for it, and addressed portability, pre-existing conditions, tort reform, opening the market to every insurer nationwide, etc. would have been completely acceptable. It wouldn't be what we have now when ObamaCare kicks into full swing, Socialized Medicine.

The Tenth Amendment has been trod on to the extent that it really doesn't exist anymore. Most people who participate in the Tea Party Movement want Education and a host of other issues to be matters under control of the States - with more emphasis on local control and self-determination. They don't trust the Federal Government to do the right thing. It's much easier for us to exercise our votes locally and make real change over matters that impact ourselves and our children than it is in massive national elections where vast, horribly expensive bureaucracies end up make decisions about how our children will be educated (for example).

That's what these screaming 'radicals' believe in. Ask yourself this simple question:



  1. The simpleton Birthers along with the Tea baggers are the same whiners that were crying when the McCain/Bailin ticket lost. Now that their yelling and screaming failed to stop the health care debate and the bill from passing they are crying again. Let’s face it the Republicans had eight years to deal with health care, immigration, climate change and financial oversight and governance and they failed. The Republicans are good at starting wars (two in eight years, with fat contracts to friends of Cheney/Bush) but not at winning wars as seen by the continuing line of body bags that keep coming home. Instead of participating in the health care debate of ideas the Republicans party turned inward to their old fashion obstructionist party (and their Confederacy roots). In my opinion the Republican Waterloo loss was caused by the party allowing a small portions (but very loud) of the republican party of “birthers, baggers and blowhards” to take over their party. I will admit that this fringe is very good at playing “Follow the Leader” by listening to their dullard leaders, Beck, Hedgecock, Hannity, O’Reilly, Rush, Savage, Sarah Bailin, Orly Taitz, Victoria Jackson, Michele Bachmann and the rest of the Blowhards and acting as ill programmed robots (they have already acted against doctors that perform abortions). The Birthers and the Tea party crowd think they can scare, intimidate and force others to go along with them by comments like “This time we came unarmed”, let me tell you something not all ex-military join the fringe militia crazies who don’t pay taxes and run around with face paint in the parks playing commando, the majority are mature and understand that the world is more complicated and grey than the black and white that these simpleton make it out to be and that my friend is the point. The world is complicated and people like Hamilton, Lincoln, and Roosevelt believed that we should use government a little to increase social mobility, now it’s about dancing around the claim of government is the problem. The sainted Reagan passed the biggest tax increase in American history and as a result federal employment increased, but facts are lost when mired in mysticism and superstition. Although some Republicans are trying to distant themselves from this fringe most of them, having no game plan/ vision for our country, are just going along and fanning the flames. For a party that gave us Abraham Lincoln, it is tragic that the ranks are filled with too many empty suits. But they now claim they have changed, come on, what sucker is going to believe that? All I can say to you is remember Waterloo.

  2. That last graphic is the best I've seen.

  3. Montana - Reagan's policies brought down the Berlin Wall and restored the US military. If you were there, then you saw it.

    Frankly, vote obama and ask yourself that last question - are you better off four trillion dollars later than you were last year. The economic collapse was due to successive administrations who did the wrong thing but the obama regime has done precisely the wrong thing to put the country into recovery mode in my opinion.

    I don't think you have ever seen me post pro-Bush rhetoric. I don't think you have ever seen me post some hoo-rah bullshit on how we were justified going into Iraq. I was involved to some extent and told friends I knew at the time that it was a phoney war.

    Vent as you are moved to. Free Speech.

  4. Poor, poor Montana; just doesn't think for himself. Says to many cliches.
    From the Pharaohs to Stalin to FDR.
    All had people behind the scenes doing the dirty deeds.
    Only the just can see. This movement of Socialism is the byproduct of Communism thrown at the people. The people stood up against FDR's communism and won. The Supreme Court said that FDR over stepped the bounds of Government grabbing to much power. But the people behind the scenes, did not let the Supreme Court get in the way. As with any thing that is too aggressively a violation against the Constitution, seem to slip by the people with something not so bad or as overly aggressive- named Socialism.
    The people behind the scenes do the deeds that the people do not see, and then the Behind the scenes people point their fingers at the politicians, and say, yea that's him man-he did it. It's the Republicans fault-or Chaney or Bush. Or Reagan did it to.
    And so on and so on. And people like poor-poor Montana are gullible- and feed at the frenzy trough.
    As with the Arizona new Law, wanting to protect the people, as they are charged with. Having all the socialist yelling that it is a bad law and a step backwards. Yea, a step backwards for the socialist.


It's virtual - it's a mirage - it's life
