The Glenn Beck’s and Sean Hannity’s of the Republican party have been trying to capture the momentum created by the truly independent outrage of the average American. Big government and big corporations have teamed up on both sides of the aisle and now there are people who want to profit from the backlash.
Our growing discontent sewed it’s seeds under the Bush administration, but America has been off course for much longer than just ten years. The promises of perpetual war and an ever increasing size and scope of government has led to such great things as the “Patriot” Act, warrantless wiretapping, and the loss of more freedom and liberty since Orwell wrote 1984.
Today snapping a photo on the sidewalk can land you not in jail with a court date and trial of your peers, it goes much further than that. You will be indefinitely detained, questioned and held without recourse, only to be released on your way with no charges or record your encounter whatsoever. Until the next time you try to board a plane when you will find out that photography lands you Homeland Security watch list A.
My own father has been identified to be on one of these list, when he was pulled out of line for an enhanced search. A Caucasian, conservative, tax-paying american, who has never even left the country, and never drove over the speed limit is pulled aside to be put through the full spectrum of interrogation and harassment, because the lists must be “balanced”. Meanwhile an Islamic African national with no passport, luggage, or identification, and who had been identified as extremists by his own family, is waved through security with a wink and a nod. Oops looks like that guy was actually the one who had the bomb.
For a brief moment there was Hope that war in the middle east may be coming to an end, but now we are seeing the beginning of a new war in Yemen, and the civil unrest in Iran is only the beginning. Obama had campaigned on a promise to return freedom and liberty to America, he promised Change from the Bush policies, but today we have seen things only become worse. Full body scans are needed to enter an airport, no one may use the restroom the last hour of the flight, and we are made to fear water bottles, toothpaste, books, and all forms of boxes in general.
We are made to fear the great “Al Qaeda” ghost and pray that our we can be saved from these terrorist by our loving government. Both parties are playing this card to its fullest extent, but those who cannot run a used car exchange program certainly cannot deliver us from evil.
“I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”
The Two ‘Party’ Party
The champions of the Tea Party movement, posing as conservatives and libertarians, are doing their best to stop the “Obama Socialism Express” but meanwhile boast the greatness of Bush administration. Regular guests and friends on the Sean Hannity show include Karl Rove and Darth Vader himself, Dick Cheaney. The same ones who brought us the Haliburton war’s and backwater “contractor” assassins.
Now people are led to believe that they have a “Plan” for victory.
The neo-cons are trying desperately to reign in those who stray from the two party system. Every day on every program the fox radio broadcasters stress how important it is to keep our beloved 2 party system intact. Without it there will be the complete destruction of American values and morals and the other team will win.
Communism or Fascism; those are you choices, don’t think for a minute that you could have anything different.
The kind of victory they have in mind is quite different from what I have in mind.
Obama’s team of Mao loving communists are just as deadly to the constitution as Bush was. Obama’s team is possibly even more dangerous. Obama is more authoritarian, more ego-centric, and far more persuasive than Bush could ever have dreamed of being. A combination that makes for a Supreme Dictator.
The Train Has Been Derailed
The neo-cons have championed the Tea Party Train and have now derailed it completely. The movement was grown out of the Ron Paul 2008 “Campain For Liberty”. We are the people who wanted neither their “prosperity nor security” at least not in the ways our two parties have proposed to give it to us.
The left promises prosperity by giving us everyone else’s money, and the right promises security by taking away everyone else’s liberty.
We can only have prosperity AND security where there is Freedom and Liberty.
NO REPRESENTATION WITHOUT TAXATION
GOP party organizers are now throwing extravagant “Tea Party” fundraisers, dinners with a pricetag of $1600 dollars per plate.
Many of us who had no money had created a true populist movement that swept across the country. Now in the course of just a few months we have allowed all of that power to be taken from us and given back in to the hands of those who rightfully deserve it. The wealthy elite, who can afford to buy their freedom.
Enemy Of My Enemy
Every Fox News pundit now miraculously has been converted, they now claim to be either “conservative” or “liberterian” but somehow are also for bombing countries that have fewer people than we have cars and may God help you if you speak poorly of Mr. Bush on one of their shows.
Do not confuse the enemy of our enemy for a friend. They will point out with professional accuracy the flaws on the other side of the aisle, in an attempt to bring you back to theirs.
We are now left with only two choices, grow or die. Every living organism exists in only two states, growth or decay. We must increase our size until we outnumber both parties or disband and assimilate back into the two parties and hope and pray we can steer the ship back to sanity.
2010 is here, and the deadline is coming upon us very fast. 11 months to create a real third party movement or be assimilated into your choice of Globalist Commie’s or War Hungry Neo-Con Fascistas.
It’s time to get off your computer, go out of your house, campaign, organize, raise money, grow the party, and make lots of noise. Victory goes to whoever wants it the most, which is why we have allowed our movement to be hijacked.
The theme for 2010 is GROW OR DIE.
