Common Ideas is what makes ideology - Not background, skin color or financial status

Hello everyone,

I have just become a tea party member. I want to clarify a few things here as a new member.

 

I am a tea party member

Not because I am white -- I am an Asian Indian

Not because I am Christian -- I am a Hindu

Not because my ancestors travelled on Mayflower -- I am an Immigrant

Not even because I am a registered republican -- Yes, I am, but that is not the point.

 

I am here because

I believe in most of the ideas Tea Party enlists as their beliefs.

I am patriot of United States of America

I truly believe USA is by far the fairest nation ever manifested on this planet

I want USA to remain the best democracy by keeping its constitution intact

I want Government to be as small as possible

I want FREE enterprise to be guiding principal of the society

I want individual rights for guns for self protection  

I want USA to do anything and everything to protect its citizens physically and economically.

 

Why am I stating seemingly obvious statements? Because, the moment you say they are so obvious, you are missing the point. As we all agree most of these ideas are typically Republican Party ideas. However, I just cannot escape the fact that no matter howmuchever I try I never get a feel that Republican Party is "inclusive" to people who look different. The irony here is that lot of people like me truly believe in these IDEAS which work far better than the failed ideas of the left. I know lots of immigrants like me who truly never even try to go to all white all Christian gatherings of the Republican Party!

 

I really want TEA PARTY should SOMETHING to fix this problem. Or else eventually right ideas of the RIGHT are going to lose out to the failing ideas of the LEFT. This post may sound blatantly stereotypical or racist, but I am only trying to state genuine problem in Republican Party which can only be fixed by bold new initiatives like TEA party movement.

 

I think we should make "inclusiveness" as part of the list of principles of Tea party by bold declaration that Tea party believes in common ground in ideas not common physical appearance!

 

Thank you,

Ven Konuru

Osprey, Florida

OK Ven but, now that you do have the Democratic teachings of history down it would be good if you learned the real history of this country. Also I have illegals in my family, whom I love and care about deeply, so as you know my stance on Immigration it has nothing at all to do with race, but appears Democrats know how to spin the truth, into sinister remarks and false history to prove their points. So if people of any nation have become a citizen of the US and refuse to really find out the truths of this country and except something they feel more comfortable with, what are we to do. You see Ven it is easy to just cry racism, and get the masses of ignorance to follow including (whites), they can believe it because it takes no effort to learn anything, the reality is the Republican Party has done way more for minorities over the past 200 years than Democrats in a legal sense, and the Democrats have hurt minorities all along the way, but minorities in large part don't even stop to look. Minorities have held more political offices in the Republican Party than in the Democratic Party, and up until Obama Colin Powell Condalisa Rice held the highest, as well Republicans encouraged Powell to run for President we all know at that time he would have won. Democrats by their very actions enslave people and Republicans Free People, yet the rederic continues. "WE" want laws to be enforced, doesn't matter witch ones, Dems call racism! What do you suggest, but also don't even insinuate Republicans or Americans are racist, we despise it as much as you probably more so.
All ears for a fellow American that cares enough to help

Sounds like we both are beating around the bush here. Neither of us believe that party is racist. Let us agree to agree on that and leave it at that.

Personally I was ALWAYS welcomed even when I had heated arguments on certain issues. But, I wanted to focus on this sesitive issue because I see very few minorities either in party convensions or when I go to local meetings or when I see the floor of Congress on republican side. It bothers me when I see 90% blacks vote for Democrat as if they really believe in those ideas, 80% Indians and Chinese vote Democrat!!! If you talk to Indians personally 98% are republicans at heart. Maybe due to the success of the "divide and rule" by democrats! I feel proactive things are to be done to include more minorites into the party membership.

I mentioned it in the subject line because it was meant for my "folks" provoking them to think outside the box. It was my way of asking them to look at the ideas! But then first response was from you and my answers got us into more sensitive but irrelevant issues!

Ven
You said : "Democrats have hurt minorities all along the way, but minorities in large part don't even stop to look. "

Who do you think should be blamed for this? The minorities ?
I blame both, Democrats for phony propaganda, and always taking credit for America's natural progressions, and minorities for choosing to remain minorities for the bias protectionism's offered by the Government and community for which they live. The truth for anyone is available if they choose to seek it, but many choose to remain divided because it is comfortable. So as Americans "we" Americans spend our lives explaining to immigrants and the miss informed these types of things, not because they want to learn or seek truth, but in most cases it's because they want to challenge the wisdom and exceptional ism of this country "they" (minorities and immigrants) have a real hard time seeing beyond racial and religious boundaries and Democrats feed on that. The mere suggestion by (Democrats) Jan Brewer is a racist (which she is defiantly not) sent Latino immigrants, minorities and sympathizers seeking justice against something that never existed, sent fear through their hearts and instead of protecting this country, they sought to harm it by not protecting it based on a lie that sb1070 was racially motivated, who's to blame "Democrats" said it (minorities followed it) Jan brewer became the target of hate and so did everyone else that stands up for Jan Brewer. No one else was targeted with hate just Jan Brewer for defending her country and those that stand with her.

So when a candidate loses an election blame is either on the opponent or voters and not on his own failure to communicate the message across! Always blame it on someone else! Well, what can i say? Now you will scream at me !
No, it depends on the candidate some can not get a massage across (as you said) some don't stand for anything we feel comfortable to vote for. For many years many of us have not even voted for this reason. Why do you suggest I would scream? You seem, like you are bitter toward Americans that are not Democratic, and feel they are against you.

Glad you have not screamed, because I am putting blame on republicans for their failure to communicate the message properly. For example. If you feel I am bitter, I take the blame for giving you that feeling, not you! It is my own failure to communicate right?

Anyway, no I am not bitter, Paul! I am frustrated at situation that minorties are not getting right message and they are supporting the wrong party. Well, it will happen!
Ven I can understand your frustration and I on occasion I wish Republicans would speak up, but no matter how loud they speak if we the people do not care to truly understand it is our fault it is our ignorance. The more ignorant we become as a people the more ignorance our representatives in Government will become. If a person gets all there information on a late night comedy tv show or from MTV, and that is it, well how informed are they. If you read and learn about the ounding Fathers Of This Country, they had the equivalent education of 9 PHD's on today's scales, and most talked in 6 or 7 languages. They did expect a free people would educate themselves, Government is a reflection of the people. Getting a messages across I have thought that we need Conservative none progressive minority, young cable tv and radio news people. Especially in collage towns.

ALERT ALERT

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
