It is time for a Tea Party Agenda. This is an agenda that we can point to and say if you elect Tea Party Congressmen and Senators, this is what we are going to work on.
This agenda is based on ideas from Tea Party activists across the nation. The idea behind the agenda is simple. We decided that the best course would be to pick out a small number of goals that everyone would agree on. We kept in mind that the Tea Party wing of the Republican Party does not control the leadership, so the parts of the Tea Party Agenda would have to have overwhelming support.
This is a simple agenda that can be passed. That is the idea. This should be an agenda we can take to the American people and ask our Tea Party Senators, Congressmen and candidates to embrace.
It will not solve all of our problems, but it will be a start.
AT THE RISK OF REPEATING MYSELF AND EVERYONE ELSE, JOHN STOSSEL DEDICATED THIS WEEKEND'S SHOW TO oil.
HIS PERSPECTIVE WAS UNAPOLOGETICALLY LIBERTARIAN, A FLAWED PHILOSOPHY IN MY OPINION.
PEROT DECLARED AN END TO AMERICA'S MIDDLE CLASS WHEN NAFTA WAS ENDORSED BY BUSH AND CLINTON.
BEN STEIN CONDEMNED SPECULATORS FOR ARTIFICIAL PRICING. HE'S A SMART GUY.
THE COMMODITIES MARKET WAS SLATED FOR NEW REGULATIONS TO DEAL WTH THE NEW ABBERATIONS WALLSTREET CALLS PRODUCTS. WHEN THE REGULATORS ANNOUNCED THE PUBLICATION OF THE NEW PROPOSED CONSTRAINTS, THE WHITE HOUSE, AT THE BEHEST OF WALLSTREET, KILLED THE REFORM BEFORE IT WAS EVEN PUBLISHED. SEE "INSIDE JOB.'
OIL IS A PHENOMENON. IT IS A FINITE QUANTITY. SOMETIME THE RESERVES WILL RUN OUT. MEANWHILE, THE OLDEST AND MOST SOPHISTICATED BARON WILL BE THE MOST INTIMIDATING CAPITALIST WE WILL BE REQUIRED TO CONFRONT. AND, CONFRONT WE MUST.
UNLIKE THE DEFINED PRODUCER, OIL IS AKIN TO DIAMONDS, GOLD, SILVER, AND URANIUM, FOR THAT MATTER. IT IS NOT A MAN MADE CREATION.
IT IS OWED OUR WISEST DELIBERATION, UNLIKE STOSSEL'S CARNIVAL BARKERS.
THE TOUTED PIPELINE WILL DELIVER OIL TO HOUSTON, OUR REFINERY SYSTEM SERVING EUROPE AND THE NEAR EAST.
FRESH WATER IS ALMOST AS IMPORTANT TO THE REFINEMENT PROCESS AS OIL.
HOUSTON'S AQUIFER AND SAN FRANCISCO'S FANTASTIC BAY ARE UNLIMITED SOURCES - WITHIN REASON.
THE USA HAS WATER ALL ACROSS OUR NATION. THAT'S WHY REFINERIES ARE EVERYWHERE.
OUR OWN SOUNDBITES ARE SOMETIMES AS DUBIOUS AS THEIRS. CANADA INTENDS TO OVERSEE THE CONSTRUCTION OF THIS PIPELINE WITH NO AGREEMENT ABOUT MANPOWER SOURCES.
- ONE OF THOSE INCIDENTALS FALLING UNDER THAT 'DELIBERATE PLANNING' GAMBIT. .
I FAVOR A BRAIN BLITZ FOR THE COAL TECHNOLOGY. I THINK WE CAN CLEAN ANYTHING, SOONER OR LATER.
COAL REALLY IS CHEAP, AND IF STOSSEL CAN BE BELIEVED, THE NEW GAS RESERVES ARE DRIVING DOWN THE PRICE OF THIS VITAL ENERGY SOURCE.
BRAZIL (SOROS) WILL REFINE ITS OWN OIL WITH THE BILLIONS OBAMA GAVE HIM..
EXCEPT FOR THE GOP PRICE-FLOURISH, OIL'S HOMAGE TO CONGRESS'S OBIESANCE, WE WILL SEE A SLIGHT PRICE SUBSIDENCE FOR A SMALL PART OF THE CALENDAR NEAR ELECTIONS, JUST LIKE THE TIP OF THE HAT TO W FOUR YEARS AGO.
ARE YOU TIRED OF THE GOP REMINDING US OF BUSH'S LOW GAS PRICES IN THE SUMMER OF '08, AFTER SEVEN YEARS OF ROBBER BARONY, WITH THE HANDY WAR TO BLAME?
REMEMBER ENRON? CALIFORNIA DOES. IT ACTUALLY RECALLED A DEMOCRATIC GOVERNOR IN REPRISAL.
I AM A CONSERVATIVE. LIKE RONALDUS MAGNUS, THE DNC LEFT ME. THE GOP FOLLOWED..
THE GOP HAS BETRAYED CONSERVATIVES AND THE TEA PARTY.
UNTIL YOU CAN ACKNOWLEDGE THIS, YOU CAN NOT FIGHT A WAR WHEN YOU DO NOT KNOW THE ENEMY.
Our enemy is our government.
Both Democrat and Republican leaders favor federal authority as soon as they are elected and want to have power. They are not there to give us more personal freedom. All the laws they pass give government more to do.
The personal and economic issues in politics define who favors the right, the left, government authority, personal freedom, or moderation. The majority of Americans favor personal freedom. Take this quiz to see where you are http://www.theadvocates.org/quiz “ The Quiz has gained respect as a valid measure of a person’s political leanings. ” - The Washington Post
Energy is the life blood of economics. There is plenty of free energy available to everyone. Tesla drove a car 90 mph with free energy, but was ruined by the oil companies. Oil, natural gas, coal, atomic, and electric energy are monopolized and will stop anyone who tries to use free energy. Our government is supposed to break up monopolies so the free market will work, but both Democrats and Republicans strongly favor monopolies. Republicans favor private monopolies and Democrats favor government monopolies, but both harm average Americans.
The problem is that no one coppywrited the name tea party. We have some that started backing Romney when conservatives still had a chance.
But why not our own party? What we have right now is one party with two names. The ruling class will never let us have a principled conservative on the top of the ticket. The GOP has become the 1856 Whigs. If we can't find a conservative alternative in the GOP then we need to send the GOP to join the Whigs.
I am a young person. I wonder why young people don't identify with the tea party? can someone please explain why?
There is no overall leadership. Most younger people are looking for leadership. When they look at Romney, McCain, Boehner, McConnell, etc... There is non.
Perhaps young people are more likely to rely on sound bytes, and not look deeper? Perhaps a lack of experience: they've not experienced greater freedom? Young people tend to be more liberal.
I never had a heart.
Vern, my daughter has used that quote several times. She went to college at Kansas State deep in the bible belt and conservative views and came home a moderate. After not finding a job in the last 18 months she is slowly becoming less and less liberal. experience is the teacher.
I assume most of us serious about controlling our government. If so then how does base closures appear as a number one priority for our group? What about term limits? Good conservatives term limit themselves but lousy politicians maintain their seats for decades. Priorities 2, 3, and 5 look good. Number 4 suggests a sales and income tax. Where is the research for 9-9-9? The FairTax has been researched and debated for 15 years. Please provide adequate remarks for choosing 9-9-9 over the FairTax. Don't just build your fence by saying it won't pass. 9-9-9 won't pass if people find out what it is.
For the most part I agree. I think goal #3 is a bit unrealistic. Do you think everything in the oil business from land owners, to the drilling rigs, to the truck drivers, oil pipeline welders, bringing the oil to too few refineries, to transporting the fuels to the distributors, to storing the fuels locally, to transporting the to the gas stations then having the tax from government tacked on is going to ever reap $1/gal again? This is just delusional thinking. Not to mention the global oil community would be buying it out from under us. The government would have to drop their tax and supplement it to bring down the cost that far. If we are going to make goals lets make realistic ones. Like $2/gal by 2016
It would cause OPEC to increase their output to keep the oil off the market.
If they maxed their output it still would not bring it down to that level. There would be tankers sitting out on the oceans waiting for it to be refined. With China buying up anything extra just would not get back to $1
