UPDATE: Someone on Twitter pointed out that we are, as a movement, moving forward. I’m not suggesting we aren’t.
What I AM suggesting is that our enemies are moving forward at a much quicker pace. If they reach their end goal then we still lose, regardless of us having forward movement.
Someone needs to say this. I’ll be the one to do it, even if it isn’t the popular thing to do.
The tea party movement as a whole doesn’t currently have the unified guts to take on the union/progressive/leftist/government/Obama/Soros machine that opposes us. At least, not at the level our political enemies are fighting at.
I’ve been involved in a few discussions over the past few days where tea party organizers from various states expressed frustration over a lack of action on very, VERY important fights happening locally.
With all due respect to my friends in Congress and in politics, the “gains” Republicans are making are small. The speed at which our nation is spiraling into collapse by far outpaces the steps taken by Republicans to try and fix the problems.
Our political enemies, yes, ENEMIES are selfish and care nothing about the fabric of the nation. They care nothing about the Republic or the free-market realm’s ability to thrive naturally.
This includes public employee unions, government infused corporations and elitists hacks like Ron Schiller.
These people only care about themselves and they’ll get what they want at ANY cost. The state is going bankrupt? So what! How DARE you “tea partiers” suggest I don’t get my six figure overtime pay!
Even many within our own movement have subscribed to the “I’m getting what is mine and I don’t care what happens to YOU” mentality. (I’m not suggesting even our own are enemies, but I do assert some of the problems arise from within our own ranks)
Yesterday I wrote a few posts about social security and other government programs now paying out some 30% of U.S. wages. The selfishness displayed in many of the responses via email was staggering.
I’ll give you some examples and remind these are people who consider themselves members of the tea party movement.
I have reread your bullshit about soc sec, medicare and unemployment insurance being a handout. Well listen close dummy. All the aforementioned have all been paid for by the recipients that you are calling parasites that devour the host. I have come to the conclusion that you must be a parasite for begging money from these people to pay for your apparently leftist liberal agenda to use against them.
Again, I never said it was a handout. All I said is that there is no money.
GET REAL.SS IS NOT WELFARE IT IS A FINACIAL AGREEMENT ENTERED INTO
WITH OUR GOVERNMENT WHICH HAS BEEN SEVERLY MISMANAGED BY OUR ELECTED
OFFICIALS. IT IS NOT A ENTILTLEMENT PROGRAM & IS RELATIVELY SOLVENT IN THE
NEAR TERM..QUIT INSULTING THE INTELLIGENCE OF YOUR SUPPORTERS.
Based on the logic that SS should be paid, even if there is no money, simply because it was an agreement into with the government, we cannot properly argue against the end of union contracts. Since, in many cases unions have “agreements” with the government as well.
Again, there is no money. It’s been spent for political gain by those who have been allowed to stay in power over the years.
I have probably 30 or so emails like this. And for the record, I understand the frustrations here. But those venting to me fail to realize something…
As a 31 year old I’m paying into the system and I will NEVER see a penny of what I pay in. I’ve been paying in for almost half of my life and I get NOTHING back.
The tea party movement needs to realize something and fast… we’re in for much tougher times ahead. There is no way to avoid it.
Republicans proposed to cut some $60 billion from a budget that operates at a $1.5 TRILLION deficit. The budget is upside down and now getting worse than ever, faster than ever.
Our political enemies are taking everything they can get before it’s too late. Public employee unions are like economic looters making runs on the bank and shops before there is nothing left.
Many within our movement are trying to figure out how to keep the SS checks flowing, blasting those who suggest there is no money left, and spending time keeping the couch clean for the evening TV shows.
Our enemies are in the streets, crashing the State Houses, raiding the banks and infiltrating the entire political process.
And worse… they’re funded by global corporations and elitists like George Soros and his ilk. In fact, they’re funded by YOU and I through taxpayer dollars!
If we’re to continue on the same path we’re on and think we’re going to eventually win against this selfish movement rising across the nation… the joke is on us and we’ve been had.
I challenge you, if you haven’t already done so, to read Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky. This is the training blueprint that Barack Obama and the rest of his leftist army grew up with.
Once you start reading it, you’ll understand the mentality we’re up against.
We need to man up. For too long we’ve been showing up at a nuclear war with a butter knife.
Enough is enough.
