Are the Tea Party’s Moribund?
“Associated Press declares Republican ‘Tea Party’ era has faded away…..” Hummn? Maybe, but I disagree with the premise asserted here by noting that pop-up, grass root political organizations like Tea Party’s, were mostly filled with aroused, angry people born in the 40’s and 50’s, who lived through the WW2 years and beyond, and enjoyed America’s post-war heyday of economic growth, prosperity and good living, only to see their parents achievements being replaced by the corrupting philosophy’s of national socialism, the same socialism their parents had just defeated. It was their parents who were the “Greatest Generation” and today, their children tend to get a bit tired after they’ve accomplished what they set out to do.
Regardless of clearly commercial Internet Tea Party organizations that claim some primary roll over the movement, Tea Party’s were really local attempts to make a difference by people who realized their Representative were not doing what the base wanted but instead were spending without control and raising taxes to pay for it. Taxed Enough Already was the Tea Party’s mantra and still is. What they realized was, is that politics should not be a career choice.
Attending political meetings where you’re told what you already know and nothing really seems to get done, quickly loses its appeal. Most meetings are merely platforms for speech makers to energize the enthusiasm of the base to do one thing and one thing only, effect “term limits” one politician at a time and, that has been done.
Three successive national elections has completely changed the Congress from a majority of Marxist leaning Democrats and go along to get along Republicans happy not to have been kicked out by their constituents, to a majority of Republicans being pushed and cajoled by the few Tea Party members elected to replace dangerous democrats. More Changes are coming!
Time passes and enthusiasm wanes, but not the determination to make America great. The denizens of “fly-over” America have seen the results of their combined efforts to make the changes needed in the body politic. Enthusiasts, no matter how their called, Tea Party or GOP or whatever, have succeeded. The battle is joined.
At this moment, our President is Donald Trump, not a politician but a pragmatists, a doer who is doing what he promised he would and returning to Americans the pride they felt in their country that the previous administration apologized away. Weakness invites contempt. America is no longer weak.
The Tea Party movement encouraged a morose population of patriots to get off their butts and start changing their attitudes from defeatism and disheartening acceptance of the coming Socialism, to realizing the righteousness of America’s constitutional representative government, and connivence others to change their attitudes too. It worked in three successive elections.
Today, we see a rising tide of minority Americans of African descent realizing they have been kept on the lowest level of the economic plantation created by the Democrats, and are starting to rebel, despite what the Black Shirts of the Fascist anarchy movements, AntiFa and BLM, want. America is on the threshold of greatness and we need all our citizens involved in the task. That’s the promise Trump has brought us, and that’s the promise he’s keeping. Conservatives can no longer enjoy the policy of bipartisanship with an enemy that wants to destroy us.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, let’s go get ‘em! (03Jun18)
Today is the first day of a brand new year, that drags along with it the sum of all the problems and pretenses of the old year, but accompanied with a dash of sincere hope that under new management, our country can succeed in restoring America to its rightful role, for all the world, as the “Shining Beacon on the Hill.”
I noted that we approach the future under Donald Trump, ‘with a dash of hope,’ but also with a marked lack of enthusiasm. The TEA Party experience seems to have evaporated into thin air after having achieved three consecutive election victories for Conservative principles that finally showed the Marxist-Democrats the door. But those rascals are still out there plotting and scheming and organizing, to undo the grass works efforts that made a Trump Presidency and a Republican Congress possible. From Republicans, there is no gratitude.
Shockingly, the lack of acknowledgement of that effort from our stunned elected politicians who constitute the Republican Party, and who still fail to grasp the import of the tidal wave of political change that eliminated the Democrats, has also swept the GOP’s influence out the door too. They are still reeling in disbelief wondering how a pragmatists became their leader. Apparently some have even “reached across the aisle” to join hands with the Socialist enemy to try to restore their combined hegemony over the American political process. Let the looting continue.
Primary among the GOP “Never Trumpers” stands 4th place loser John Kasich, Governor of Ohio who, if the frequent appeals from his web site to my email address are any indication, still believes he should be the rightful Republican candidate so as to restore to proper governing, the failed process of “bipartisanship” and return our government to the capable hands of the one world government crowd composed of mega banks, international corporations and the quasi assembly of third world nations gathered under the blue banner of the United Nations.
2018 will be another important midterm election experience for conservatism. Also judging by the volume of their appeals for donations, Democrats must truly believe, because Americans really, really hate Trump, that they will capture the House and the Senate again. How they accomplish that goal with an intractable and intransigent, but aging leadership, themselves ready for hospice care, is in serious doubt. Their message never changes, free stuff for everyone, no border walls, protect sanctuary cities and states, and free education and glorify perversion because it’s only fair.
Future leadership for the Democrat party is an unspoken contest between old time American leftists and the corroding influence of foreign ideals (Islam), they are trying to force into the American culture as a norm, a precursor of the coming jihad that turns America into a Caliphate.
Presently, both party’s find their bases confused by indecision. For the Democrats, it’s do they move further left and double down, or move center right to save themselves? For the stupid Republicans, a golden opportunity has been laid at their feet and sure as heck, they’re going to flub it. Where is the TEA parties when we need them? The GOP needs to be cleansed of its socialist heretics. Younger conservative candidates need to be encouraged to step forward and seize the reins of American constitutionalism. As my friend Jack Smith reminds us constantly, “if not now, when?” “If not you, who?”…or something like that. We’ve got to get moving, now.
