There are fundamental flaws in how American government operates today,
contrary to the Constitution and the vision of a representative republican form of governance.
I intend doing something about it: by educating and informing others who
are not even aware of the dangers.

Tea Party or Broom Party?

There is so much clamor in the media linking the "Tea Party" to everything from radical neo-conservatives to terrorists seeking to create anarchy. Many Republicans have called for so called "Tea Party" candidates to step aside and back a Republican, because they have a better chance of gaining the support of  the American voter, than a "radical Libertarian" that wants to legalize drugs and give hand guns to everyone.

Nothing could be further distorted about what the Tea Party movement is all about. Breaking from traditional party politics, the citizens that comprise the "Tea Partyers" are from all walks of life, of every color and ethnic makeup, of many different political ideologies, who are looking to restore Constitutional integrity to the United States of America, and to give economic recovery a chance to happen in a free market system without the burdens of government regulations and mandates, and a burden of taxation that forces many corporations to relocate overseas.

Ideologically, I consider myself Libertarian, and I register to vote as a Libertarian. I am not however, a member of the Libertarian Party, I do not pay dues, and will not consider any party affiliation at all. That is my choice to make. That does not mean that I will not back a candidate who is a member of a party. I will vote for those people that best serve the interests of the constituency they will represent. Experience in politics is something that I personally feel is a negative when reviewing a candidate's biography and resume. I want someone who going to represent our best interests and a "seasoned politician" knows how to "work the system" so that he can please the people he represents a bit and still maintain a "rewarding relationship" with the special interests groups that get first priority on any considered legislation.

This November, I am going to become a member of the "Broom Party" and sweep out the stagnant incumbents at all levels of government. America needs new blood in government. We need people who have real experience in how the government's own regulatory system is an obstacle to real growth, and who understand that so long as we have a debit-based monetary system, we will be forever paying for it with inflation and recession.

I have posted before about the site with the documentary film The Money Masters several times, and I am too lazy to go grab the URL and copy and paste it. Besides, if people do the work themselves to research it, then it will be their experience and not my opinion. I feel that serve the highest good and therefore allow others to think for themselves.

If you are sick and tired of decades of two-party politicking and want real change in government, then you are getting off late but not too late to research alternative candidates who will best server YOUR interests and those of your family and community. We need to start fresh so as to have a real change occur. We have endured decades of the two-party system and when you sum it all up, it has not worked!

I am sure there are incumbents that are worthy of reelecting but they are far and few between. GOP Congressman Dr. Ron Paul is one that immediately comes to mind along with Arizona Governor Jan Brewer. Standing up for what is best for America amid all of the pressure from the media and activist groups, as well as the federal government who, one would think, would be supporting the States rights to protect itself from illegal invasion from illegal citizens of many nations, that cross into the United States along the southern border.

And Dr. Paul's relentless attack on the Federal Reserve System gets almost no serious media attention whatsoever. At the very least he is labeled a radical as he was ignored by his own party's "endorsed" presidential nominees during the debates. The media manipulates the public opinion by omission of facts and injects spin in its place.

Tea Party candidates are representing a Constitutional government, where the States rights are restored, where the monetary system belongs to the nation instead of private foreign banks and the responsibility for the stability and soundness remains with Congress and not a secretly-meeting body of "board members" who do not represent your best interests or mine.

Yes, just like the Colonial Tea Party participants, this November there are many in government, who for years have been firmly anchored in the Beltway System, will be cast overboard like rotting waste to make room for fresh ideas brought from real life experience and not political back-room deal making.

Unlike true democracies, a representative federal republic as was designed by our founders, balances power amongst the citizens AND the States. Now to some that may seem redundant, but it was not always so. The 16th and 17th Amendments to the Constitution of the United States, upset the balance of power and as a result, helped to create the debit-based America we live in today.

If we are to remain sovereign and become a prosperous nation again, then We the People must take our voting rights seriously and do the brave thing to save our nation from within as our brave troops are defending our freedom abroad.
