Just read an AP news story about the Tea Parties today, and I was left with a bad taste in my mouth. I really should not be at all surprised by the fact that the story started with playing down the "Tea Partiers " role by calling them "a loose movement" which I really have nothing more to add to. I know what they mean of course only I may have made a different choice in words.
The real relevance of the article for me was the fact that Republicans like Rep. Bachman of MN who spoke at the rally at Freedom Plaza in Washington. Accusing congressional Democrats along with President Obama of "trying to take over health care, energy, financial services and other broad swaths of the economy."
Using terms such as, "gangster government" and "time for these little piggies to go home" to incite the crowd, she then began thumping for support for her own reelection bid. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich told a crowd of about 300 that the GOP need tea partier support and that creation of a third party would only divide the opposition to the Democrats.
In essence Gingrich is correct. If that is all that we are to accomplish is to create a third party that will take years to gain recognition, then we are defeated before we begin the race. I am registered to vote as a Libertarian and have been for many years. I am not a dues paying member of the Libertarian party and yet I do support the ideology of small government and more freedom. Allow the legislation passed by two-thirds majority of all the sovereign States who send their respective delegates to the House and Senate to vote on such legislation to do so, on behalf of the States and the citizens, and leave Congress to restore itself to taking responsibility for coining currency and setting the value of it. End the Federal Reserve and the Internal Revenue Service and end fractional reserve banking.
Let's stop dancing around the reality and the gravity of the situation and act responsibly for real change. Change America back into a federal representative government and end the socialist democracy lunacy before we are completely bankrupt both economically and spiritually.
