Many reports and not just so-called ‘left wing’ source say the Tea Party is losing considerable support in many corners of the political stage…………
WE bloggers, both right and left, have been warning the people of the situations that we are now faced….few people listened and we have a crap economy and a crap political system……from time to time we have even predicted certain things and they have come true…but were we given a atta boy? Hell, no! We have been ignored even more and the MSM gets all the credit for seeing into the future……being the bigger persons we bloggers give credit where credit is due….but the MSM feels NO way the same……(the pricks!)
But from time to time it feels good to see something that you wrote about months even years ago were spot on…..that is where I am coming from now…..awhile back I wrote several times that the Tea Party and the GOP were playing a dangerous game….that is that they do not want any jobs created so they may have a shot at winning the presidency. Then I, among others, were told that politicians were not so petty as to wish ill on the American public……but guess what? The Tea Party Express has proven me and the others correct…..and it feels good to be right!
Tea Party Express activist, Melissa Brookstone, has sent out a message and it reads……
Resolved that: The Obama administration and the Democrat-controlled Senate, in alliance with a global Progressive socialist movement, have participated in what appears to be a globalist socialist agenda of redistribution of wealth, and the waging of class warfare against our constitutional republic’s heritage of individual rights, free market capitalism, and indeed our Constitution itself, with the ultimate goal of collapsing the U.S. economy and globalizing us into socialism.
Resolved that: President Obama has seized what amount to dictatorial powers to bypass our Congress, and that because the Congress is controlled by a Progressive socialist Senate that will not impeach one of their kind, they have allowed this and yielded what are rightfully congressional powers to this new dictator.
Resolved that: By their agenda and actions, those in our government who swore oaths to protect and defend our Constitution have committed treason against the United States.
Resolved that: The current administration and Democrat majority in the Senate, in conjunction with Progressive socialists from all around the country, especially those from Hollywood and the left leaning news media (Indeed, most of the news media.) have worked in unison to advance an anti-business, an anti-free market, and an anti-capitalist (anti-individual rights and property ownership) agenda.
Resolved that: Our President, the Democrats-Socialists, most of the media, and most of those from Hollywood, have now encouraged and supported “Occupy” demonstrations in our streets, which are now being perpetrated across the globe, and which are being populated by various marxists, socialists and even communists, and are protesting against business, private property ownership and capitalism, something I thought I’d never see in my country, in my lifetime.
I, an American small business owner, part of the class that produces the vast majority of real, wealth producing jobs in this country, hereby resolve that I will not hire a single person until this war against business and my country is stopped.
Damn! Looks like another one of those pledges in the Grover vain…….The last paragraph says it all…….and Dammit! It feels good to be right!
So the Tea Party would rather force Americans into joblessness just to make a point for the upcoming election….does that sound like a group that gives a crap about you and your family? By all means support these dipsticks and crap on your family at the same time…..
All the crap going on in Washington and through some of the states makes me wonder if there may be some master plan that these Repubs and Tea Party types are trying to install……and are the Koch Bros. (for lack of another front man) behind this new movement?
Rick Perry, Governor of Texas, is getting a lot of press….why? He has become the frontrunner, ahead of Mitt, for the GOP in the next election (boy that did not last long at all)……and somewhere in his little mind there is a right to secession from the US written into the Texas constitution……first, I believe that Texas has the right to break into smaller states, but there is nothing about secession if their government is unhappy with the government or the policies of the US (if there are Texans out there and they are reading this…please clear it up for us)……..
Looks like the master plan within the GOP is to do away with the national government in favor of 50 state governments……this would be the best thing for business and the wealthy…..why? to begin with NO minimum wage enforced by a national government, the death of unions, mandatory education, no environmental policy, no national health care or a social security….in other words, the people become tools to be discarded when they become a burden in favor of the younger ones as they come of age…..
They would not need to worry about SCOTUS getting in the way of the takeover …it would not be needed….each state has its own and they are elected, in most cases, and that would be good for corporations…..they could get whatever they want for some bucks for a campaign…….
Is this what the Founders had in mind? Without reading about the constitutional debate and siding with the Repubs, then yes it is what they had in mind……but if one has read the Constitution and the debate surrounding it, then this is all so much crap and if they succeed then we can kiss the American exceptionalism thing goodbye…….and return to the days of the Confederation.
The Confederation…….states were printing their own money, signing individual treaties and trade agreement…..the country collected almost NO taxes and the weakness of the situation made foreign intervention possible….in other words, America was a f*cked up place and not capable of anything other than the cutting of each others throats……..the states were too weak to even protect their own territory……and with all the GOP/Tea Party crap about returning so much back to the states we are moving to repeat our failure with the Confederation….It will benefit NO one but speculators and corporations….the residents will be SCREWED!
Bachmann I realize that she is not the sharpest pencil in the box, but……) does not think were need any revenue as a country and the rest of the GOP field is lessening the amount of money that the country could have on hand and that would make the states the major players….individually with 50 separate agendas….what would that do to make the US a stronger country? NOTHING!
I feel rejuvenated by the movement that is underfoot…..it makes me think of days gone by…the 60′s and 70′s…….it does my old radical good to see that all is NOT lost…that Americans, especially the young, still have the balls to face down the government in times of crisis…….
I want to give them some sage advice from the my days on the protest lines….first, recall back about 3 years ago and the original Tea Party….Ron Paul and his supporters were very local and very successful in their attacks on the staus quo……..and then because they were so successful the corporate think tanks and PACs began taking over the message and co-opted it into the extreme and sometimes racist group that is in the forefront now…..
I had been sitting in front of the PC trying to find the words and the method for me to issue my advice without sounding like some condescending asshole….I have been trying for a couple of weeks and each one of my drafts sounded more like a sermon than some good advice….but the internet to the rescue…..then I found an article written by Andrew Gavin Marshall…….
While I fully endorse the efforts and actions of the Occupy Wall Street protests, now emerging internationally, there are concerns which need to be addressed and kept in mind as the movement moves forward.The process through which a potentially powerful movement may be co-opted and controlled is slight and subtle. If Occupy Wall Street hopes to strive for the 99%, it must not submit to the 1%, in any capacity.
The Occupy movement must prevent what happened to the Tea Party movement to happen to it. Whatever ideological stance you may have, the Tea Party movement started as a grass roots movement, largely a result of anti-Federal Reserve protests. They were quickly co-opted with philanthropic money and political party endorsements.
For the Occupy Movement to build up and become a true force for change, it must avoid and reject the organizational and financial ‘contributions’ of institutions: be they political parties, non-profits, or philanthropic foundations. The efforts are subtle, but effective: they seek to organize, professionalize, and institutionalize a movement, push forward the issues they desire, which render the movement useless for true liberation, as these are among the very institutions the movement should be geared against.

It is a very good piece and plenty for the OWS protesters to consider….Please do NOT let the “man” take over the movement….for when that happens we all will lose…..STAY STRONG…….STAY FOCUSED……STAY PEACEFUL…..and watch your backs!
