If Obama gets his way, he will 1) over tax us all into poverty and government dependency, 2) spend the country into oblivion, and 3) take our guns. That’s what dictators do and usually under the guise of “helping”, “saving”, or “protecting”. We are at a “Give me liberty, or give me death” time in history. WAKE UP PEOPLE! Wake up Republican leadership!!!!
I posted the above comment on facebook today. I got these great replies:
Ron: Just what Hitler did to Germany. Time for Americans to wake up re-read some history books and get our collective heads out of our backsides. We can no longer keep telling ourselves this could never happen in America…. IT IS ALREADY HAPPENING PEOPLE!
Christine: That’s exactly what Hitler did. What do they say about those who fail to LEARN FROM HISTORY?
TEA Party still fights hard through the hard times. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/12/26/The-Tea-Party-Has-Not-Yet-Begun-to-Fight
I followed up the post with this: It has seemed so hopeless lately. But I guess it’s time to get over the Obama victory and utter GOP failure, and get myself back to work.
One comment about 2012 from my friend Jerry was this: [The TEA Party was] “Being torpedoed by RINO’s in office and being called Racist by Communists.” We were not only attacked and marginalized by Barack Hussein Obama, the Democrat Party, and the liberal main stream media, but also by the GOP. Time after time, we all went back to the GOP to help put Republicans in office. We succeeded in many races. Yes, the Primary was contentious and people took sides, but that’s completely normal. Now in the General Election, the TEA Party couldn’t have been more unified with the GOP and even the establishment. And what did we get? Slapped.
Slapped at the state convention. Slapped at the National Convention. We all still volunteered for, voted for, and supported Republican candidates, even Romney. We didn’t deserve to be called names, or held on buses at the convention in Tampa, just to name a couple things. Ron Paul and his delegates didn’t deserve to be held out of the National Convention. (I’m not a Ron Paul for President supporter, but I can see the much needed value of his platform and his supporters votes in the GOP. The GOP was too short-sighted to welcome them in, just as they were with the TEA Party.) So many of us worked really hard to defeat Obama with [eye roll] Romney. He should have had an easy victory. … Never mind, that’s already been discussed at nausea.
To clarify, I am angry at the national party – the RNC and US House and Senate. In our neck of the woods, Senator Burr is the worst offender against conservative principles.
Conversely, North Carolina has been represented by some of the most upright and conservative Republicans I have known. We are lucky to have such fantastic representation in our state. They understand their jobs, the scope, the limitations, and the Constitutions. The state Republican Party is not so fantastic, and I’ll leave it at that.
I’m ready to hasten the GOP’s self-inflicted irrelevancy, especially after this latest budget debacle. They seem to become more and more politically inept. Is it so difficult to understand we have a spending problem, not a revenue problem?
No wait… THEY have a spending problem and we are the one’s responsible for paying the bill. Apparently, Congress fails to grasp at any level their federal spending is so out of control that they are ruining the country. [Google “Cloward and Piven”] SPENDING CUTS! SPENDING CUTS! Cutting the rate of increased spending is not a spending cut. Check out this budget example:
US Budget for dummies (from the HotAir Greenroom, 2011)
* U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000
* Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000
* New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000
* National debt: $14,271,000,000,000
* Recent budget cuts: $ 38,500,000,000
Let’s now remove 8 zeros and pretend it’s a household budget:
* Annual family income: $21,700
* Money the family spent: $38,200
* New debt on the credit card: $16,500
* Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710
* Total budget cuts so far: $38.50
It’s simple math stupid. We’re broke. We can’t afford it. Even if something was a good idea (like new infrastructure), we can’t afford it. Stop Spending!!!!!
Why does it seem like the GOP is more willing to go along with Obama with each new battle?? The GOP is basically allowing Obama to control the narrative of who they are and what they stand for, to such an extreme that I sometimes think the Left might be right about the GOP. Have you heard Speaker Boehner explain what their plan is? Rarely. Have you heard Obama explain what the Republican’s evil plan is? Yes. Obama claims the House GOP wants to end Medicare and kill grandma – not true. But the politically inept Republicans either don’t or won’t clarify. Shoot, the GOP won’t even call Obama a Socialist or a Communist.
The GOP has come to Obama’s gun fight with spit balls.
Another facebook friend, Jimmy, said it’s time for a third party now. “But there was no tea party presence in the  primaries, Sarah Palin pretended to be a non-partisan hack commentator on Fox, and in the general election the tea party backed some real losers. CONCLUSION: Unless the tea party becomes a nationally organized team, it will never have any real power.”
People in the TEA Party are mostly conservatives and some libertarians. We all worked hard in the appropriate existing political party – the Republican Party. We were dedicated to getting a conservative principled outcome in the elections. But just like Ron Paul and his supporters, all libertarians at heart working in the GOP, we were all ridiculed.
After 2012, I am officially ready to form a third party! I’m done with stupid Republicans who are either too corrupt or too stupid to do the right thing.
I’m a Republican deep down inside, I mean, I really believe in the GOP Platform. Why don’t most Republican elected officials? Why is it that the TEA Party supported Congressmen are maligned for being conservatives and supporting the principles in the GOP Platform? It’s dysfunctional, unproductive, and led to Obama’s victory.
It’s time for a new Party. We have four years to make this happen. Some might be surprised, since I’ve been telling people for 4-years “we don’t need a third party. It will only cause Democrats to get elected.” At this point with the GOP, we have nothing to lose.
