One Nation Under Individual Rights

Me at a one of The Tea Party events I've attended over the years. The biggest difference between the Carter years and the Obama years is the existence of The Tea Party. Americans are fed up with the federal government and are getting politically organized, which is the the last thing Washington, DC wants. Just look at how unhinged they've gotten over Ted Cruz, who embraces The Tea Party unlike any other politician. Despite the scumedia declaring it dead, the modern day Tea Party is alive and well and about to celebrate its 5th anniversary. In a post-Carter America, we got Reagan. In a post-Obama America, we need a candidate who embraces The Tea Party. Here are all of my Tea Party/Tea Party-related blog posts.

And here is the man who sparked the modern day Tea Party movement, Rick Santelli, on its 5th Anniversary and what it means.

Great on the nose post and thank you for your love of country as I see it should be.

Please allow me to share my feelings as to the Tea Party and the country in general. I wrote this a few years ago but I think it still rings true.

"We the people sometimes do not pay attention to all that is going on, but once we open our eyes, we act. The hateful noise coming from the hard left at this time leads me to the following. I am hopeful this is the start of a second revolution that will restore our country’s soul. I’ve said before that we need a revolution but we are the only country that can have one that is done peacefully through that ballot box. As to the Tea Party, my feelings are well known but apparently need repeating!

It is apparent beyond all doubt that the establishment on both sides are deathly afraid of the so called Tea Party (and thus the electorate in general) and they well should be! For those of you who prefer to live in a cave, the Tea Party from my view is not just about returning to conservative principles. The people who are aligning themselves behind this movement are looking for so much more. We are looking for men and women of principle! We want representatives that obey the will of the people, not their leaders or their own power lust! We want a return to the bedrock principles this country was founded on! We sure as hell do not want to be told we are racists, hate mongers or all the other names we are called just because we disagree with the direction this country is being taken. We believe in free speech, not hate speech!

The Tea Party movement is not a fight for the heart and soul of the Republican party! A co-opted media led by a hard core left wing wanna be dictatorship government would want you to believe that it is in fact all about the Republicans. And they would be dead wrong! The Tea Party movement is a fight for the heart and soul of our country! It is a fight to return us to what made us the greatest country in the world! How sad that entrenched politicians on the right along with the tone deaf clowns on the left cannot or refuse to understand such a basic tenet!

Freedom comes at a price kids! Sit on your hands and take, take, take, you’ll lose everything! Take responsibility, work and earn your way, respect the rights of others to pursue those same goals and live as true Americans! Those who fought and died to make this melting pot the greatest country this world has ever known deserve that from all of us and if we act now, there is a chance to save it all. But time is running out and the fact that even now most of the current political class would rather punt and destroy our grandkid’s future is disheartening to say the least. Add the hate we now see and we are in free fall! “
