There is nothing like fear in the air and the Democrats and the liberals have a lot of fear. In the past few weeks, they have been saying the Tea Party are terrorists, have held the budget and congress hostage and now the latest talking point, we are fading away.
First, from the Chief Thief of the Senate, in the Las Vegas Journal Review:
"The Tea Party was the result of a terrible economy," he (Harry Reid) said. "I've said that many times, and I believe that."
"That (the Tea Party) will pass. They will lose a number of seats next year."
Reid has amassed his considerable power by never underestimating his adversaries. And he has been known to throw out strategic fibs to create misdirection.
However, Reid left the indelible impression Friday that as long as he's leading the Senate Democrats, the Tea Party agenda is dead on arrival in his chamber. In exchange for a modicum of reduced growth in federal spending, Reid said someone will have to pay more. There will be reductions and entitlement reforms without tax increases. He singled out the rich and oil companies as especially deserving of punishment.
Then from the Hill:
The reign of the Tea Party may be coming to an end in Washington, according to academic political experts who say polls show a backlash against the conservative movement.
Two national polls released this month by CNN and The New York Times in conjunction with CBS News showed the Tea Party’s unfavorable rating at an all-time high.
Political scientists say the data shows a backlash of independent voters against conservative lawmakers who have taken a hard line against bipartisan compromise in Washington.
These experts say independent voters who make up the swing bloc of the electorate typically pay less attention to politics than staunch Republican and Democratic voters.
The contentious debate in Congress over the debt limit gave the Tea Party new prominence to many of these casual observers of Washington.
And many independents were not happy with what they saw over the last several weeks: a contentious debate in which conservatives threatened to force a national default; the failure of President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to reach a grand bargain to reduce the deficit; a sharp rebuke of the political system by Standard & Poor’s causing havoc on Wall Street.
Where have we heard this one before?
Oh wait, it was 2010 before the Tea Party kicked Nancy Pelosi out of the Speaker’s chair. We have liberal CNN and the liberal New York Times and the liberal Hill all saying the Tea Party is fading. This is the messaging the Party of Treason and the left wants us to hear.
The Tea Party has a message for the far left. We aren’t going anywhere.
The liberals HAVE to say something to attack the Tea Party. It's fear than causes hate. And they've got a lot to fear so they must make us conservatives look stupid. What gets me annoyed is the fact that the uninformed will believe what they say.
I have an uncle who is an undying democrat.....not a liberal as a matter of fact I don't know if he's aware of what that party stands for but he told me on Sunday and NO ONE will beat O. Hmpf. Never reads anything just listens to MSNBC and all that rot. It was through Obama's administration that I started doing my homework so I would have some basic knowledge of what is really happening.
Dirty Harry and the likes of him can say (lie) what they wish. The Tea Party is stronger than ever and WE WILL have a MAJOR impact on the 2012 elections. We are here to STAY and GROW.
The kleptoparasites on the far left are, as is typical for them, so clueless that they don't have a clue that they are clueless.
Do you suspect it would help to clue them in if we could find a way to explain to them that Tea Parties are more a social movement than they are a political movement? And that the social movement is far larger than the aggregate "official" membership of all Tea Party organizations combined. And, folks, the political establishment may whine and complain loudly, but political establishments will always eventually follow the direction of the society else they will render themselves irrelavant and be replaced by political establishments who do have relevancy to the society. That is the very nature of a democratic-republic.
So, hang in there and keep plugging. We will win because we have truth and reality as a firm foundation upon which to stand. Let those who would hang themselves politically do so.
I remember when Carter came up for his second term. The media all said that he would win by a landslide. They all had Reagan dead and buried politically. I learned something by that election. It is better for the libs to come out with all that stuff. I think it makes conservatives who tend to think someone else is going to "win the day" for conservatives, come out in droves to vote!!!
Well, we all know what happened. It was a landslide all right! But it was Reagan who won by a landslide.
If conservatives play their hands right, don't spend their election money too soon, and save it to go face-to-face with Obama's assault on the airwaves right before the election, then I think we will prevail. All the conservatives need to do is remind people that Obama's first objective was not to restore a climate to encourage jobs but to pay to the tune of trillions of dollars his supporters off with our tax dollars! And just list all of his failures and all of the times he has pushed things down the throats of the citizens; list all the times he has broke the laws of the Constitution.
All Obama has got right now is to smear his opponent because his record as present is the title "the worse president ever." That reminder just needs to go out to counter his venom.
Sherry H. et al:
The Democrats, unlike the Republicans, are students of history.
This is there golden rule:
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Joseph Goebbels - Propaganda Minister (and close friend) of Adolph Hitler.
We expect them to use this principle in the political campaign arena, but they use it in all circumstances.
Yesterday and today, more so than in the past, we hear "The Tea Party is Fading away." Whore House Harry Reid made the prediction that the Tea Party would fade away many months ago and now the drive-by media has picked it up as a war chant.
We cannot let their propaganda become our reality.
Anyone actually interested in putting aside their keyboards and getting out into the streets needs to contact me via my page here on TeaPartyNation.
There are plans being formulated to put Boots On The Ground nation wide from the immediate future up until and long after the 2012 elections.
Is it going to be fun? Not hardly.
Is it going to be hard work? You can count on it.
Is there going to be any danger? Depending on the nature of your community, there could be.
If we do not take this action, then we face a much greater danger; the loss of our country.

You dang right we aren't going anywhere and we may start carrying our pitchforks with us as well. Even though they have all been traitors when it comes to confronting Obama's eligibility, I truly like to think they are waiting for January to unleash on Mr. illegal himself.
