Tea party.... a few thoughts

Concerning the 'Tea Party', I have a few thoughts.

First, let me say that I firmly in the ranks of those backing the present Tea Party concept. Vote out politicians who disregard the citizens liberty, property, and wishes. Vote in politicians (or simply other citizens) who do regard the same, and are staunchly in favor of lowering taxes and lessening government control over the people.

I have attended Tea Party rallies, and read the news coverage after. Let me say.... anything that can get the 'media' so upset that they'll lie that blatantly to damage the movement, I'm in favor of. If the Local Democrat cat box liner is that solidly against the Tea Party, then the Tea Party must be worth supporting.

Now... after watching Karl Rove and other 'Republican' party officials coming unglued as their hand picked machine candidates lose to 'Tea Party' candidates, I am even more firmly supportive of the new 'Peoples' party, for that's what the Tea Party is fast squaring up to be.

I don't expect die hard liberal Democrats to bother looking past their major media handlers and actually pay attention to what the Tea Party is all about, and Lord knows I certainly don't expect them to go to a Tea Party event and see reality for themselves. They haven't bothered doing that in generations, and there's not much chance they will now. Nor do I expect the Republican Machine hard core to accept the Tea Party and their millions upon millions of citizen supporters as worth regard, excepting where it suits their latest power play. They haven't cared what the majority of citizens really want for forty years, so why begin now.

I see the Tea Party as the embodiment of a sea change. All the pent up frustration citizens feel at having their hard earned money stolen under guise of tax law, and their freedoms snipped away bit by bit in the name of security, fairness, and shear arrogance. All this has come to a head and the sleeping giant is awakening.

Career politicians are afraid. Very afraid. At least, the smart ones are, the ones not already lost in an internally generated sea of arrogance, indifference, privilege, and self importance. The politicos who are paying attention and have their eyes open are seeing a ground swell of citizens involvement they can't control and manipulate, and it frightens them badly. They are striking out in terror, turning cannibalistic, and scrabbling at the hard stone walls of the political tombs they never noticed themselves building.

I approve.

Aye, you're spot on. Well said.

I heard that Christine O'Donnell received a million in online donations in the 24 hrs following her win in the Delaware primary. We're seeing a rising tide that I hope will swamp the entrenched politicians in D.C.

Career politicians are becoming known simply as "the elite"; out of touch, smarter than us peons, &, as you say, afraid, very afraid.

I sincerely hope that we (Tea Partiers) can cut through the haze that envelopes these people before the next step becomes necessary.

Hey Teach, nice to find you...

I've got a "job" to do here and I take some time to scour the web to find what info I need to help the local Republican favorite defeat one of Nancy Pelosi's most ardent followers in Congress. You have him listed under the heading:

I pledge to donate money, time, and effort to defeat ANY congressman or senator who voted in favor of the unconstitutional and morally corrupt bill known as 'Obamacare'.
The roll call of treason: Who voted for Obamacare?

His name is John Tierney and he's being confronted by a very active, confident and knowledgeable candidate named "Bill Hudak" who just won his primary 78-22 in MA06.

Obviously, a donation of any kind is supremely appreciated but there are other ways you could help, too. If you could write a short article, pointing both to Bill's website

Bill Hudak for Congress

and his facebook Fan page:

with a "Call to Arms" for any readers who share your views, I can tell you it'll be immensely appreciated.

Jay Severin, of Boston's WTKK Talk Radio, came out saying "strongly, and greatly" he picked Hudak to have a great chance at beating the entrenched incumbent John Tierney.

Tierney votes with the Party 98% of the time, and one of the times he didn't, it was a bipartisan effort with both Dems and Reps supporting "responsible fatherhood" Tierney has also been steadily withdrawing his support for our only true ally in the Middle East while Obama and his lapdogs send our money around the world to help rebuild/repair mosques.

email me at and let me know what other information I can provide you with if you think it will help you help him.

I'm reminding people that whether or not Pelosi can be defeated directly, a Tierney defeat is TWO marks against her... it removes one of her YES cohorts and puts in a free market, limited govt guy who will probably always be voting against her.

Best wishes,
Defeat Congressman John Tierney
