Tea Party Republicans

The Liberal Media spends so much time and effort attempting to marginalize the Patriotic efforts of those of us who have had enough of the monster we have been feeding called Big Government that they can’t see the forest for the trees. The “In the Tank” Media, or “Tankers” as they are called, truly have no idea who members of the Tea Party really are. Oh, they have high hopes that the Tea Party will become a third party and siphon votes away from Republicans. But those that believe that truly do not understand the movement at all.

What are Tea Party Republicans?

I, your humble citizen correspondent – (A.K.A. Blogger) identify myself as a member of both the Tea Party movement and the Republican Party. These are not mutually exclusive groups. Not either / or. A large number of the active members of the Tea Party are also active members of the Republican Party.

So the Tea Party ARE Republicans after all!

Some are. Some are not. There are a lot of Tea Party folks that are Ron Paul followers. Libertarians. Some are Democrats who regret where their party is going, and many are independents. Believe it or not, some Tea Party members consider the Republican Party and the Democrat Party as two wings of the Socialist Party with the ultimate goal of bigger government. Many are offended you call them Republicans and openly despise the failed Republican leadership that got us to where we are today. To them, the Republican Party is beyond hope. Beyond salvation.

So the Tea Party IS positioning to be a third party?

Well, the jury is still out on that one. Some say we need a third party, that the two party system is not working. And they are not wrong. Both parties are leading us into the mouth of repression and loss of freedom. The Democrats are simply on a faster track to the same destination.

The Tea Party movement is presently in flux.

The influence that the Tea Party has had on the Republican Party is enormous. The Tea Party awakened a sleeping giant and the resurgence of the Conservative movement is strong. Both within the Republican Party and without. The Republican Party has seen a revival of it’s soul. Some genuine, some in fear of their elected position, with the latter on the short list to retirement.

So what is the answer?

It is hard to deny the influence in terms of direction the Tea Party movement has had on the Republican Party. Some are, and have been, Tea Party people at heart forever. Others now see the light. The key is a return to the emphasis on State and Local government as the most important participant in self governance. The real power must be returned locally where the people can keep a close eye on what is happening to them and their money. Any politician that does not agree with this most basic principal on which this country was founded has no business representing the people. And they must be purged.

At this point, the Tea Party movement serves the people best by exerting their considerable influence, grass roots efforts and support behind the candidate that has BOTH the best chance to win AND the closest adherence to the principals on which this country was founded. In some cases, fielding a Tea Party candidate may be the best answer. But in most cases, the answer will be to push strong Tea Party Republican candidates during primaries, and a full on grass roots effort to see that they win the election.

While the idea of a third party is enticing, in the near term it is a certain path to bigger government and repression by the “Progressive” Socialists that have taken over the Democratic Party. We simply do not have the decade or decades it will take to establish a viable third party. In the meantime, the Tea Party would serve to splits votes and will hand the Socialists the reins of government and the keys to Washington. We have jumped over the cliff already and must do something immediately to salvage what is left of our country. President Obama, Pelosi and Reid have mapped out a path to America’s destruction. They are a clear and present danger to our liberty.

In the end, a Tea Party Party will spell the demise of the Republican Party before the Tea Party can rise to viability. And a return to a two party system is inevitable. All that changes is the name of the second party. It is far more expedient to bring the Republican Party to the Founding Father’s vision than to start over.

Many of us are already there, and we have work to do.

7 Responses to “Tea Party Republicans”

  1. David Johnson says:

    We are sick of socialism. The Republican party has done nothing substantial to overturn the legislation enacted from the New Deal or the Great Society. The Republican Party will never give up socialism. It is integral to its historical development. The first socialist who held political power in this country were the progressive Republicans. Read anything that is written by Theodore Roosevelt, he is steeped in socialist ideology. This party has duped all those who love liberty. It is time for a third-party movement: The Tea Party.

  3. The only hope to upset the Demoncrats plans is for the Libertarians(who are not strong enough on their own), the Tea Party who has no official party standing, and the GOP who’s the closest in size, numerical strength, and money to compete with the Demoncreeps, to unite forces! If the Gop, the Tea Party, and the Libertarian Party, all combine forces, The Demoncreeps are in trouble!

  4. Hanover Conservative says:

    Great point. Politics has invaded the Republicans and they have lost focus. Founding Father conservatives and Reagan Republicans have given the party over. We aren't here because we were too conservative. That's like saying you listen to the people "too much". Republicans cannot be "low calorie democrats". Current Democrat leaders have shown exactly what Democrats are. We got here because Republicans showed exactly what they had become. Nobody saw a diff. Hard to knock stimulus packages, government health care (part D) and checks in the mailbox when it wasn't an original thought. Think about it. Democrat stimulus bad….Republican Stimulus good? No finger pointing….but let's get this cleaned up.

  5. Tom White says:

    And if we can continue to move the independents to vote for the Candidates that are willing to work for smaller government and more liberty, we will regain our freedom – and our country. And those that we elect MUST govern based on their promises when put in office. Liars get the boot!

  6. Laurence Topliffe says:

    I thought you might be interested in this new book on Intelligent Design. Based on what I’ve read from each side of the argument, I would say that neither side has provided any solid proof that shows that what they think is true. This book does that. It proves beyond any doubt that intelligent design must be true. The knowledge in the book is not covered by either side and when it is included in the discussion, it inevitably leads to only one conclusion. The premise is that human beings have an ability that cannot be the result of evolution alone and that humans are the only being on Earth that has this ability and it is impossible for any other being on earth to develop it. This will add important knowledge to what you teach.

    I guarantee that you will not be disappointed in what you discover. You will discover something about human potential that I would bet right now that you have no idea of but which the book will explain and that’s a guarantee. The title of the book is absolutely correct. You will not be able to refute the proof. You may resist it but you will be forced to agree that the ability could not have happened or developed through evolution alone. Evolution has a goal and this book explain what that goal is and how to get there. You will be very glad you read the book.
