What is the Tea Party?

What is the Tea Party?

That's a bit more difficult to define than "Why is the Tea Party?"

A MAJORITY of Americans are outraged that Congressional leaders would demand that the party in power sign an $800 billion stimulus bill without reading it. If you're one of those Americans, you'd find people just like you in the Tea Party.

A MAJORITY of Americans feel that the ObamaCare program is bad for them and bad for the nation. This is another one of those Trillion dollar investments where Congressional leaders mandated that the party in power sign without reading. If you agree that ObamaCare was a horrible solution to the problem the nation faces with escalating healthcare costs, you're going to find people just like you in the Tea Party.

A MAJORITY of Americans feel that the Federal Government is simply too big and doesn't respond to their concerns as citizens, as parents, as co-participants in the Republic. If you think that the Feds need to devolve some of their power to the States where the buck can stop a bit closer to home so you can have a voice in what's done, you'd feel at home in a Tea Party gathering.

Today, A MAJORITY of Americans believe that Barack Hussein Obama does not represent the best interests of the citizens of the United States. If you agree with that statement, you'd feel like you are with friends when you're marching with people from the Tea Party.

The Tea Party represents the MAJORITY of Americans. They have no headquarters, there is no leader, there are no dues, nobody will hand you a machine-made sign or an "envelope" with cash in it for showing up and expressing yourself. Its ranks are made up of independents, Republicans, Libertarians, Democrats, the young, the old, those in between, the rich, the poor, the middle class, all races are there, most religions (except for the Satanists, I think) are represented. They clean up after themselves when they march and don't leave trash around, they sing patriotic songs and want to see the government do what the Constitution says it should do.



The Tea Party (like it or not) is America.

  1. Because Barack Hussein Obama's socialist agenda is in play, America has spontaneously mobilized. And trust me, the Republicans are just as uncomfortable with that as the Democrats are.

  2. Never trust someone who prefaces their statement with the words: Trust me.

  3. Thanks for the link and image. Thanks again for doing the logo on that picture for me. Your talents are a well-kept secret.

    The Tea Party is America. Every time the pundits and libs offend the Tea Party I smile inwardly thinking that it will not go well with them to fight America.

  6. Amanda, I'm getting ready to do some off-roading on the Big Island in the rented Jeep. The lava fields are calling me.

    BUT in my more quiet moments when I'm not reading or working on the next novel, THE BLACK SCORPIONS (due out in the Spring - shameless plug), I still think about the fix this country is in.

  7. Opie, are you kidding? Secret talents? Have you read LL's book? He no longer belongs to us. He now belongs to the literary world.

  8. To the radicals in Washington, everyone looks like a radical. The plain truth is that the Tea Party is centrist and does indeed represent a majority of Americans. Will the Tea Party pull the Republicans back to the center or even right of center? That remains to be seen.

  14. The Tea Party movement is not a fight for the heart and soul of the Republican party! A co-opted media led by a hard core left wing wanna be dictatorship government would want you to believe that it is in fact all about the Republicans. And they would be dead wrong! The Tea Party movement is a fight for the heart and soul of our country! It is a fight to return us to what made us the greatest country in the world! How sad that entrenched politicians on the right along with the garbage on the left cannot or refuse to understand such a basic tenet!

    Sometime ago I wrote something that in reading it again, I realize in my own way that it is what the Tea Party is in fact all about. We want our country back! And if it takes a revolution, in this case at the ballot box, so be it!

    “Our country is suffering a slow death as we do not have a leadership with enough moral fiber or belief in our ideals to stand up to it. They only condemn what will hurt them, not caring a wit about the electorate.! This is not what my forefathers fought to give us!

    Before the lefties get their panties in a bunch, I state again. As has been the case since he has been in office, Obama's administration has chosen to talk down to or ignore the general populace! As the electorate ( the barely 50% that even bothered) was stupid enough to allow this man to be voted in due to their own refusal to take their jobs a voters seriously, this is the kind of government you get.
