TEA Party TRUTH:
Now is a perfect moment to consider the emergence of the TEA Party, its impact upon 2010 elections, and its potential impact going forward this Fall and Beyond.
In early 2009 as Barck Obama was racing to implement his unconstitutional and criminal fraud against General Motors bond holders, implement TARP, 850 billion dollar [friends of Obama] "porkulous" fund, implement [by any means possible] Obamacare, and building massive spending increases on "auto-pilot," ... grassroots conservatives across the country took notice of a rant by Rick Santelli and a blog by Keli Carender AKA Liberty Belle ... and the "Taxed Enough Already [TEA Party]," was born.
Many [to numerous to easily count] groups using Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, blogs, and many other methods of communicating and coordinating began identifying themselves under variants of the phrase "TEA Party." Almost all folks self-identifying as "TEA Partiers," abhor the current system of taxation, abhor deficit spending, abhor runaway national debt, and abhor monetary policy that is destroying the dollar while trying to maintain fiat currency over constitutional specie of gold and silver.
While many other issues fall under the "TEA Party" umbrella, reverence for, and a return to, constitutional government under the "Rule of Valid Laws," was almost universal to them ALL. TEA Party folks are people who believe in hard work, equality under the law, and equal application of valid laws to ALL. Most believe in the Creator spoken of often by the founders of our republic. In fact, most of them hold near equal reverence for the Declaration of Independence as for the Ten Commandments.
Throughout 2009 and 2010 TEA Party folks organized, worked, and rallied across the nation. They fought hard to block as much of the "Obama-Pelosi-Reid" agenda as possible. Simultaneously they began recruiting folks to run in primary election contests and in every general election since. In 2010, one of the largest "political repudiations" of a Party, administration, and agenda, in U.S. history, occured as conservatives AND the GOP regained the majority in the House of Representatives, almost regained the Senate, and gained in Statewide offices everywhere.
Fast forward to today ... where MANY TEA Partiers [myself included] scratch our heads, bewildered, wondering how it is possible things have gotten so much worse [including the likely nomination of Romney]. Of perhaps greatest bewilderment is the FACT that with the TEA Party led new majority in the House [our nation's purse-strings] deficit spending and national debt have BOTH skyrocketed.
Today on the Rush Limbaugh program, Rush finally spoke words I have been screaming at my TV, radio, and PC monitor ... for almost a year.
Why did Obama-Pelosi and Reid implement so much of their "America destroying" spending in 2009? Why has the Reid-democrat controlled Senate not passed a budget [even though required to pass them under current federal law] since April 9th, 2009?
SCOTT BROWN is the simplest, shortest answer, for with the election and swearing in [Feb 4th, 2010] of Senator Scott Brown (R) MA, Harry Reid lost his "filibuster" proof majority in the senate.
However, to cut spending by our federal congress ... budgets MUST pass. Continuing Resolutions [CR's] do not and will not Cut Spending. Pelosi and Reid were well aware of this, and no doubt at some point educated Barack to this FACT. Massive spending increases [including automatic annual increases] were added by the democrat party [sadly with far to much GOP help] and nothing short of shutting down the federal government CAN stop the runaway spending until and IF the American voters punish the democrats mainly responsible!
Folks, We MUST get this TRUTH spread to every potential voter before this Fall's general election. We MUST hang this "fiscal treason" like millstones around the neck of every democrat running for congress [and the rest if possible]. We MUST fund election ads that hang the Reid obstructionist record around every democrat senator. Obama has knowingly ... deliberately used these tactics to "steal" billions of dollars from We the People [and our kids and grand kids] and funneling those billions to his cronies, friends, and supporters.
This is One Critical Part of the TEA Party TRUTH that Must Get Out to Everyone!
