An Underclass View of GOP vs Tea Party
Tea Party vs GOP for 2nd Place
All the news distracts us from seeing the real problems and solutions.That kind of influence is very costly, only Wall Street and associates can afford such an illusion.) I didn’t realize at that time that the illusion had already begun with the creation of the Tea Party. Last year this time hub pages the TV and Internet news was all about, Democrats vs. Republican leadership. The Republicans had had 8 years to drive the country in a ditch. The Republicans were looking unelectable and the Democrats were poised to win again in the 2010 mid-term election.
The Purchase of the Great Illusion:
The American people for years have wished for a third party to give them another choice other than Democrats and Republicans. Right Winged Conservatives knowing they couldn’t win with the Republican brand bought and paid for a clone of the Republican Party.This third party calls itself The Tea Party. The American people for the first time had a party that could challenge the two major parties. The Tea Party had a job to do quickly, before the mid-term elections. Their job was to attack Republicans and Democrats and show no mercy. With all the influence and exposure money could buy, that’s exactly what the Tea Party did attack Washington Politics. Soon they were able to lump Republicans and Democrats together as the cause of the Nation’s debt problems. On TV and Internet news, the chatter gradually changed to get rid of Republicans and Democrats replaced them with Tea Party Candidates. The Tea Party’s was to stop the spending (defund the government), and reform entitlements and cut the national debt; jobs also had an honorable mention. They argued that the government should run on the same economical principles as the average tax payer’s household.With the influential power of money, the Republican Party through its Step child, the Tea Party, served the people kool-aid and hogwash.
A brilliant and well financed plan:
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not hating on the Tea Party, I’m just expressing what I observed over the last year. In 2008 there were 2 major political parties. In2010 there were 3 major political parties. Prior to 2010 I don’t think that there were ever 3 major parties. It happened so quickly. The Tea Party had no growing pains; it went from birth to maturity in months. The cost to bring a political party from concept to political power in 2 years is unmentionable. In the Congress of the United States there are over 80 Tea Party-Republicans. They pledged an allegiance not to use reason and not under any circumstances vote certain ways. They say they were sent by THE PEOPLE to do their will. My hat’s off to the Republican Party for creating a Republican seal team to attack the President and the Democrats while faking an attack on the Republican Brand. It worked brilliantly and the speaker of the house got 98% of what he wanted, he said.
The Tea party could turn out to be the Republican’s Trojan Horse or pain in the neck. They were not elected for brain power, but for obedience. They can’t be sent home after use like the people that came in buses, planes, cars, and trains during election season. The Tea Party freshmen feel empowered and know there is power in their numbers. They are trained to attack Republicans also and like people look out for each other. They also know in order for them to be vested in their congressional pension they must serve at least 5 years. They will fight to not be 1 term Congressman or women. The democrats have had to live with yellow and blue dog mess in their house for years. Now the Republicans may have dog mess that may prevent republican lock steps, it looks like it may be a 2 step. President Obama must have a good end game.
It was a good first year with Hub Pages, I wasn’t bored.
