Listen Up Libâ€™s This Is What A Tea Party Is
By: Ken Hughes
There seems to be a great deal of confusion among Liberal Democrats as to just what a Tea Party consists of. The Tea Party movement is not now nor has it ever been an organized political party. A Tea Party is one step up from a Town Hall meeting, the American Colonies first means of participating in community affairs. The Greeks are credited with inventing democracy but true democracy, American Democracy was first created on the ship Mayflower in 1620 when the Mayflower compact was agreed to and signed by the majority of [men] on the ship before anyone was allows to disembark. One of the first buildings erected in these new villages was a community center that served as both religious and political gathering sites. In their previous lives these new frontiersman were subject to God and their Monarchs for direction. Since both God and the King seemed a long ways away these men and women were forced to band together and make decisions that fulfilled the needs of the community. For lack of a better word it became known as a democracy.
American democracy is unique in that itâ€™s allows / encourages mans innovative juices to flow. More of the modern age technologies came from American ingenuity than anywhere else in the world. The few things Americans didnâ€™t invent they made work better, faster and cheaper than those who did the inventing. None of these accomplishments came from a big government leading the way. Public decent and criticism is the fuel that makes American democracy burn bright for the world to see.
The United States Congress is comprised of some [not all] of the most corrupt and cowardly politicians ever to espier to public office. About half are hell bent on establishing European style socialism as the policies of this government. Itâ€™s Old Englandâ€™s Robin Hood philosophy steal from the wealthy give to the poor only after skimming off the top half for themselves. Itâ€™s this mentality that keeps liberals from accepting the tea party movement anyone whoâ€™s honest and doesnâ€™t steal canâ€™t be trusted. Town Hall / Tea Party movements are as American as George Washington or Ronald Reagan, to disparage them by questioning their patriotism is not to understand democracy and the constitution. Suggesting loyalty to a president supersedes loyalty to America and all it stands for in its self boarders on treason.
One of the Democrats least successful dirty tricks is planting stories suggesting the tea party participants are getting violent when just the opposite is the case. Any violence has been traced back to persons planted within the tea party gatherings to disrupt and hope to create the wrong image. A number of talk show hosts have offered large rewards in the hundreds of thousands of dollars for proof of any violence by a tea party member, so far no takers and no proof.
So far the only violence has been when 12 year old young girl Frankie Hughes [no relation] was arrested by the police for refusing to leave Senator Tom Harkins Des Moines office without an answer to her question by the senator or one of his staff. Frankieâ€™s mother Renee Espeland was also arrested for contributing to the delinquency of a minor. That would never have happen if the senator were a Republican Frankie would have gotten her answer, only Democrats are allowed to revert to such tactics to silence decent. Since when is teaching children family values as well as family political beliefs un-American? Senator Tom Harkin has some explaining to do before he starts ragging on the tea party movement again.
Barack Obama has chosen his target of the week. This week so far itâ€™s Sarah Palin, of course with Obama he doesnâ€™t stay focused on any one thing or one person for long so this can change. Obama questions Sarah Palin’s knowledge of a nuclear threat. In case the president doesnâ€™t know his American geography Alaska is much closer to Russia than Hawaii. Sarah Palin as Obama grew to maturity during the cold war years with Russia. Palinâ€™s Alaska was potentially one of Russiaâ€™s first targets in the event of war. In the event Russia won a war then perhaps Hawaii would have been where the Russians would go on vacation, I canâ€™t see where Obama has any more experience in anything with the exception of gang warfare in South Chicago. Something Obama failed miserably at curbing when he was organizing that community.
To our friends on the left, the tea party movement is not the third political party nor does it want to be. It is not a branch of the Republican Party nor does it want to be. It is neither organized nor franchised. Itâ€™s an independent group of very pissed off citizens with a common cause and that is to get a message through to congress, â€œWe the Peopleâ€ are in charge and elective government serves at our pleasure and we are not pleased with how thing have been going for a long time. One of the founding fathers said [paraphrased] â€œOne obnoxious person is a tragedy, two is a law firm and three or more is congressâ€.
The left continually suggests the right has no ideas no plans when the left talks and never listens thatâ€™s a somewhat correct assumption. The rightâ€™s offered any number of alternative suggestions to be considers by both house of congress that never see the light of day. The left can come up with as many trail balloons as they like and each one is treated by the mainstream media as something monumental, those bills from the right never see the back pages of a newspaper or any news source. Thereâ€™s a media bias in this country and even a subculture of bias in most of the national networks. The good thing is Fox News and Talk Radio is winning the information wars. The public is no smarter today than theyâ€™ve ever been, theyâ€™re just better informed. The Internet has created a source for information unprecedented in the past.
For those who donâ€™t believe in a higher power please explain why itâ€™s taken man so long to discover all of the technologies God placed on this earth? Could it be man is being tested? Meet the challenge vote conservative in November you may not be awarded 70 virgins but you will get a good nightâ€™s sleep and a much better tomorrow.
