Tea Party; Friend or Foe
As the Tea party holds its’ first convention in Nashville many are asking just what is the Tea Party? I know you are aware of the good work they did in helping Scott Brown get elected in Massachusetts. You are probably familiar with their Tea Party Expresses wherein they traverse across the country stopping at strategic locations to hold rallies. All and All I am a 100% supporter of their cause but I must admit I have a slight reservation!
My reservation comes from having been inside one of their meetings. Now don’t get me wrong there were no strange goings on; no weird voo-doo rituals or such as that. I was called one Sunday afternoon to attend a neighborhood gathering, the purpose of which was to start a local Tea Party Chapter. The caller had read several of my letters to the local paper which are usually just pared down versions of my blogs in which I rage against the Obama Administration. He told me they were starting the chapter and thought I would be interested in attending. Well a few hours later I along with a buddy of mine were sitting in the caller’s living room discussing the purpose of the Tea Party.
In the beginning I was energized and enthusiastic regarding what we could do to help raise the awareness level of the general population regarding the Socialistic takeover of our country we were all witnessing. As I rose to speak; the Patriot isn’t shy when it comes to letting his feelings be known, I was cautioned not to speak ill of Democrats because the Tea Party was in fact a Bi-Partisan Movement. Goodbye; that did it for me. Let me say it here and now I am not interested in, nor will I ever support any organization that claims to be Bi-Partisan. Sorry but I despise Democrats; they are the root of all evil in this country and to ignore that fact is to deny reality. There is no such a thing as a moderate Democrat. Just look at how they all were cowered into voting in block by Reid and Pelosi. The only thing that saved this country from healthcare was Scott Brown!
Now that brings me to the point of this blog; what will be the outcome of this movement? How will the efforts of the various Tea Party endeavors translate into the success of candidates in the November elections? If they do indeed, back only Republicans then they will truly be a force for good! However if they live up to their supposed charter and in the spirit of Bi-Partisanship back a Supposed Moderate Democrat or worse yet, support a spin off Tea Party Candidate then they will be the mechanism through which the Democrats are allowed to continue their madness! The only formula for success in November is Back Republicans; no ifs, ands or butts about it!
I would also prefer to see the Tea Party stay away from such controversial issues as King Hussein’s Kenyan birth because that only provides fodder for the liberal naysayers who continually look for ways to marginalize the movement. Don’t provide ole wee-wee-leg Mathews any more ammunition with which to shoot you with. I agree the King is most likely Kenyan born but there’s a time and place for that debate and on national news at your first convention is neither the time nor place!
All and all I know the Tea Party is a good thing; if not Sara Palin would not be addressing their convention tonight. It’s just that Bi-Partisan thing that really gets me riled up; I can’t stand Democrats!
