Defining the Tea Party (and Why the Beltway Is Frightened Of Them)

tea party movement something brewingWho is running scared?  What is going on in the USA?

Both the Democrats and the Republicans are afraid of the Tea Party.

The Tea Party consists of the average citizen. Some are younger, some are older, but mostly it is comprised of decent, hard-working people who want their country back. It is not a party with a chairman, or any real hierarchy. It is just people who want to exercise the rights given to us by God, written into law by our Forefathers.

The Tea Party is made up of citizen patriots who supported the filibusters by Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. Filibusters are part of the due process of an elected official’s arsenal to fight for his or her constituent’s wishes and rights.

The Tea Party is for God and country, family and all the things the USA was founded upon.

Scary, isn’t it? Bottom line, the “rabid and evil” Tea Partiers are trying to eradicate the elitist elected and their royal lifestyles.  It must be as frightening as a horror movie for many of the elitist politicians; they have covered their eyes and ears–they cannot look.

The Tea Party is made up of a group of voters who want their elected officials to do their jobs. Oh, the humanity!  Don’t be fooled; the powers-that-be are running scared.  They know the golden teat (i.e. our tax money) is about to be pulled out of their mouths.  So, what is a beltway slug to do? They have to do what they do best in any situation: Throw money at it! The elite have even corrupted your local Chamber of Commerce to join in on the witch-hunt. And of course the lamestream media hands the poisoned Kool-Aid out nightly about how the Tea Party is ruining America.

Could anyone have predicted the power of a group of concerned citizens a handful of years ago?  What the elitist, cushy politicians have forgotten is that the “Tea Party” is simply a large group of registered voters—the type of voters who actually vote (see “2010 Elections 101” for proof).  And now is the time to put the pressure on your elected officials and remind them that they are in your employ, not the other way around.  They can—and will–be replaced each and every time for lack of job performance. There is a great deal more power in the numbers than could have been imagined.

The status quo is gone. It is time for action, not words.  If the Tea Party is a pebble in the shoe of the Beltway Bunch, then so be it.  2014 can change many things for either good or evil.

While many people do not consider themselves Republican, leaning more toward Conservative Independent, the Republican Party needs to understand that if they trot out another moderate, non-conservative candidate, they can lose again.  This loss could be fatal to everyone. It is a make or break election year and the Party needs to try to win, not try to go along to get along with the Left-leaning crowd.

Too many people did not vote in 2012 due to what they felt were lack of choices. We are now reaping the consequences.

If you don’t want to have to hold your nose and vote for the ‘lesser of two evils’ in the upcoming elections, get involved NOW.  Let your voices be heard because the 2014 and 2016 elections are possibly the most important in the history of America.
