"Democrat/Tea Party - OR... Republican/Tea Party" by Merwin

Updated on December 24, 2011

I really do not know the over all direction of the Tea Party, but I do know that if Ron Paul is afiliated with it, that is a step in a good direction.

I mean really folks... the political machine is the problem in this country, and we have a golden opportunity in all parties for real change.

President Obama was elected because we desperately wanted change from the bovine scatology that D.C. has been oppressing us with for many, many decades. But, how can someone who is so akin to the machinery... no, let me rephrase that. How can someone who is so "manufactured" by the machinery, provide us with change from the machine itself..?

Obama's vague promises of change, and "YES WE CAN", was extremely inspiring, I hoped, that he might be someone who could deliver. My disappointment has not been a surprise.

BUT... that is in the past, we now have a direction that EVERYBODY, in all parties may espouse and demand from their political leaders no matter who may be running... "I will not vote for you if your platform is unconstitutional."

And yes this may be what the Tea Party is calling for... and the MEDIA may be portraying them as just a bunch of cracked pots, but consider the source. The media... conservative or liberal, is simply the propaganda machine for government. And let us say for the sake of getting this straight... even if the Tea Party is near "over the edge", it is the Constitution that can join us all in safety, and keep the country from going over the edge.

It would not matter about the social constructs of your political ideals, if they were reinforced by constitutionalism.

You may have all the things that you would like your governments (federal, state and local) to do, and be, but in their appropriate settings. All the things that you, we, they, would like to implement can be accomplished both in the political and private sectors, constitutionally. Democrat, Republican, Libertarian... whatever.

We need to elect Ron Paul to send two messages... one to the monstrous political machinery, and the other to the American citizenry.

To the Machine... "You are dead, and we will get your affairs ordered."

And to the People... "You are very much alive, you are free, big brother has been dealt with, you and I, are in charge! Vote... Run for offices... and do it all Constitutionally."

Yes liberals, conservatives and libertarians see things differently, but it has been the Machine that has fanned the flames of those differences, to keep us at odds with one another while the Machine picks apart our Constitutional safeguards. Stop the scatology... vote Ron Paul, and get involved..!

Write about it..! Run for office..! VOTE..!

      Myself and lovely bride of nearly 29 years... not nearly long enough, (sigh).

      My friend there is much for us all to do, and I believe it is time, if only... I pray it is not too late.

      A longtime ago, I recited those words. It was an oath to uphold, protect & defend the Constitution. That meant something to me; It was bigger than me, bigger than anything I realized... to this day; I marvel at the words on Parchment. Before the soundman ques the Sousa Marching Band...

      It pains me this is the foundation we must rebuild from. The good news; I'm over it so back to work!

      If I May defer to the Tenth Amendment...

      "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

      SCOTUS Ruling:

      United States v. Sprague, 282 U.S. 716, 733 (1931).

      “The Tenth Amendment was intended to confirm the understanding of the people at the time the Constitution was adopted, that powers not granted to the United States were reserved to the States or to the people. It added nothing to the instrument as originally ratified.” –

      A long time ago the Founding Fathers were rightfully concerned over the potential power struggle between the Feds & States.

      We really could use that DeLorean about now to go Back in Time.

      Thats the beauty of The Oath to uphold, protect and defend the Constitution...

      No? If I'm missing something please let me know...

      Thats a great Hub picture by the way. Very Nice

      2 gjfalcone...

      All candidates that run for every office needs to be a Constitutionalist, Federal then state.

      If for instance someone runs for Governor or even state legislator, if their platform is based on the Federal Constitutionalism first, then if follows they are insisting on State Autonomy or at least State Strength because that is what our Federal Constitution is based on.

      Your thoughts..?

      I truly love this "...we desperately wanted change from the bovine scatology that D.C. has been oppressing us with for many, many decades."

      Does that include message regurgitation until it becomes palatable? Sorry, couldn't resist.

      What if we vote for Teddy Roosevelt?

      Levity aside, I couldn't agree more. Now is the time for a strict Constitutionalist. But we must take this thought to the next level.

      Ron Paul will dilute the Establishment Republican Candidate. This suggests to me, President Obama will win re-election.

      The Dems face 23 seats up for Senate. Republicans have 10 seats up in 2012. No way Dems hold that body of Congress. Assuming, The House holds and now we're off to the races.

      Filibusters galore, maybe Presidential vetoes, but absolutely stuck in the mud America. 'Back to the Future' politics rehashing Roe V. Wade, Voters rights, Minimum wage, stop me anytime...please ...tell me I am way out of line!

      Yet, still, as an Americans Elect Delegate, I'm holding until otherwise convinced; A Ron Paul/ Bernie Sanders ticket has the best chance. Maybe not to win, but 33% could be a tie.

      Voted^ & Awesome

      I do not follow politics closely, at least not close enough to offer sound answers to the problems that have led to the crapalanche which has finally come to pass, (no pun intended), as a result of our decades long study of the fecal excrement which is commonly known as OUR GOVERNMENT! However, I will say that from what I'm hearing and what little I do know Ron Paul sounds firm and definitely genuine. Good Hub Merwin... Keep campaigning....I'll keep reading!

      President Paul! President Paul! Yes, if Americans truly care about their civil and economic liberties they will vote for Ron Paul. If they really care about the troops they vote Ron Paul and bring them home.
