The Tea Party Is On A Mission And Its Not That Of Saving America.
The Tea Party Is On A Mission And It's Not That Of Saving America.
Like vicious rabid crazed gremlins with sharp teeth, these little teapoters have set out to risk America’s very life and every limb of the Obama presidency — even if it means that they have to destroy the country before trying saving it. The full faith and credit of America apparently should not be an obstacle to the full religious faith and mayhem of the Tea Party.
America has to be saved — if for nothing else, for the idea that uppity politicians should know their place.
We all know, unless you stone stupid or a blind ideology, that the battle waged by the Tea Party, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and fundamentalist Christians to "take back America" will inevitably further the corporate takeover of the U.S. as we know it.
Behind the Tea party's revolution lies a nostalgic yearning for an imagined past that never existed. This conservative Tea Party has evolved from the Tax Equity for Americans (TEA) Party of the 1970s.
Beginning one month after the election of Barack Obama, the new Tea Party was embraced by the Republican Party because it allowed them to regain control of the House of Representatives and begin their sole purpose of defeating the president in the next election.
When our capitalist economy readjusts itself by depleting accumulated surpluses, driving down wages, busting unions, lowering living standards and throwing millions out of work by instituting corporate rule, we the victims are told our sacrifices are necessary to set the stage for a "renewed boom."
The Washington Post published detailing how a debt deal showdown that engulfed Washington and fractured the Republican Party was the direct result of ascendant Republican lawmakers, the self-proclaimed "Young Guns," who recruited Tea Party freshmen and then targeted the debt ceiling as a key strategic opportunity.
However, the foundation was laid years before, when a trio of rising Republican stars -- Reps. of Virginia, Kevin McCarthy of California and Paul Ryan of Wisconsin -- began a push to revitalize a beleaguered Republican Party by recruiting members who hewed to an unyielding ideology of curtailing the federal government, according to the Post's account.
A new wave of 87 Republican freshmen had ridden to power opposing the budgetary expansion that a debt ceiling raise represented, and they were not ready to capitulate -- not to Democrats or to their own party's leadership.
They were helped along the way by Cantor, who repeatedly invoked the leverage they would have with the debt ceiling. Cantor was also instrumental in undercutting the "grand bargain" outlined by President and Boehner, arguing that repealing tax breaks would be unacceptable for the emboldened freshmen.
They are most disgusting, arrogant, demagogues, anti-intellectual, bunch of politicians ever gathered together who have caused the credit of America to be downgraded and they are proud of it.
They should be run out on a rail. They are punishing the people for having the audacity to elect an African American to the presidency of the United States.
The real problem with these folks is not what they say they believe in,
but what they don’t say and really do believe.
