Who’s Afraid of the “Big, Bad Tea Party”?

 Is it any wonder that those who’ve learned to live on government handouts see the Tea Party in their nightmares as a fanged monster, or that anybody who’s profiting on the current dearth of individual thought and action sees the Tea Party as a threat?

As I understand the Tea Party, it isn’t a political party like the American Democratic and Republican Parties, or even the American Communist and Socialist Parties. It isn’t organized on a national basis. It doesn’t have a central headquarters. I don’t think it even has a centralized web page. It’s not well funded. It’s loosely affiliated: mostly locally organized groups bound by an idea.

It’s not a new idea. In fact, it’s the idea on which this country was founded: that large, extremely wealthy, all powerful, all consuming, empire-like governments that collude with equally empire-like corporations are . . . well, maybe not necessarily evil (that’d be giving evil a bad name, if it’s possible to do that), but certainly detrimental to life, economic liberty, and individual freedom.

The Tea Party is probably most similar to the American Libertarian Party, which does have a web page and national headquarters. I can see the Tea and Libertarian Parties someday merging into a formidable political organization.

But oddly enough, even though the Tea Party and the Libertarian Party are similar in belief, the Libertarian Party doesn’t scare the living daylights out of every federal government employee like the little old Tea Party does. When people in Washington DC–including many republicans–hear the words ”Tea Party,” they lash out like cornered animals.

Maybe we have them on the run at last

Not until WE take our country back, restore the constitution in totality, administer the laws properly. It might take a long while to undo what this current president has destroyed, these past 5 years.

Disband the Current Democrat Party because it IS NOT the party of old. Its so communistic in its consistency with corruption that its unrecognizable.

i agree and obama's corruption has to stop,along with his side kick biden

Biden is not his sidekick he is his manservant!

Where is "happyjack biden?"  Haven't seen much of him since his assinine statement about getting a shotgun and discharging both barrels at the same time out the back door, if someone breaks into our houses.  Must be a big fan of the marijuana crowd, legal or not, since they are all above the Law.

Also disband the Republican Party because it is trying to hard to be like the Dems....vote Conservative or not at all.........

They fear us because they can't control us.

There's the truth to it Glenn, in a nutshell! Obama has but one choice to attempt to control the TEA PARTY etal, and that's HIS nuke option, MARTIAL LAW!

Republicans know it, and have been fence straddling for a long time to appease this fraud president BUT, it can't go on forever. The president will eventually come to a place where nobody will bow to him or obey him or his worthless ideas and that will be when he fabricated a synthetic Martial Law to get back control.........BUT.......IT WILL BE HIS UNDOING.

You can fool all the people some of the time [Democrats & foolish Republicans who bought "Hope and Change"], and some of the people all the time [Definitely all the Democrats, forever, A Weak minded foolish people], but you cannot fool all the people all the time [ The Tea Party/conservatives because of GOD, Truth and real justice being on their side.]

Abraham Lincoln

Now go play the battle him of the Republic and sing those words out loud!

Stephen Kazmer It wouldn't  surprise me one bit if he has an army of his Muslim pals. Remember, people, what he said when first elected.....  He said he wanted an army that was  a bigger and better army than  Our American Army..... and the idiots still voted him in a second time.... God Help America and our people...

Hopelessness and "buddy can you spare some change?"

I agree, If Obama plays his "Martial Law" card, it will be his undoing.  He will then find out how many of us True Americans are out here in the real world, and we will do what we have to do to survive and make this country great again.  I really don't think he is that stupid, but I could be wrong, you never know...

Exactly! "they tried it with the gorillas:  The IRS! The politicians always use the IRS to keep the sheep corralled.  If all else fails: call the IRS! The IRS is the only way they could get to the Mafia.

ALERT ALERT

Breaking — West Virginia Lawmakers Invite Persecuted Pro-Second Amendment Counties In Virginia To Join Their State

West Virginia lawmakers introduced legislation to invite persecuted pro Second Amendment Counties to join their state.

The West Virginia Senate adopted a resolution to remind Virginia residents from Frederick County that they have a standing invite — from 1862 — to become part of West Virginia.

West Virginia freedom fighters broke away from Virginia Democrat slave owners during the Civil War.

This week West Virginia has once again invited persecuted Virginia pro 2-A counties to come join their state.

Sounds like a winning plan!

Resolution 8 reads as follows:

HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION 8

(By Delegates Howell, Summers, Shott, Householder, C. Martin, Hott, Graves, Cadle, Barnhart, J. Jeffries, Maynard, Phillips, Foster, Hamrick, Steele, D. Jeffries, Wilson, Waxman, Bartlett, Paynter, Linville, Sypolt, Bibby, Hill, Ellington, Higginbotham, J. Kelly, Mandt, Pack, Dean and P. Martin)

[Introduced January 14, 2020]

Providing for an election to be had, pending approval of the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and a majority of qualified citizens voting upon the proposition prior to August 1, 2020, for the admission of certain counties and independent cities of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the State of West Virginia as constituent counties, under the provisions of Article VI, Section 11 of the Constitution of West Virginia

Whereas, The Legislature of West Virginia finds that in 1863, due to longstanding perceived attitudes of neglect for the interests of the citizens of Western Virginia, and a studied failure to address the differences which had grown between the counties of Western Virginia and the government at Richmond, the Commonwealth of Virginia was irretrievably divided, and the new State of West Virginia was formed; and

Whereas, Such division occurred as the Trans-Allegheny portions of Virginia perceived that they suffered under an inequitable measure of taxation by which they bore a disproportionate share of the tax burden; and

Whereas, That this perception was further compounded by the effects of a scheme of representation by which Trans-Allegheny Virginia was not allowed to have its proper and equitable share of representation in the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, That this arrangement arguably resulted in the tax dollars of Trans-Allegheny Virginia being used to enrich the Tidewater through internal improvements which did not benefit the people of Western Virginia, while the people of the Trans-Allegheny had little to no say in how their tax dollars were allocated; and

Whereas, Though this course led to an irreconcilable division, and the subsequent formation of West Virginia, yet, the longstanding peaceful cooperation between this State and the Commonwealth of Virginia is a sign that such separation, undertaken even under the most challenging and onerous of circumstances, can, with the passage of time, yield lasting results which are beneficial to both sides; and

Whereas, In the intervening years, the same neglect for the interests of many of the remaining counties of the Commonwealth of Virginia has allegedly been evidenced by the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, Particularly, many citizens of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont contend that an inequitable measure of taxation exists by which they bear a disproportionate share of the present tax burden of the Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont also believe that, currently, a scheme of representation exists by which the citizens of Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont do not have a proper share of representation in the government at Richmond; and, consequently

Whereas, The people of the Southside, the Shenandoah Valley, Southwestern Virginia, and the Piedmont believe that their tax dollars are used to enrich the Tidewater and Northern Virginia through internal improvements which do not benefit the people of these other parts of Virginia, while the people of these other parts of Virginia have little to no say in how their tax dollars are allocated; and

Whereas, In recent days, these tensions have been compounded by a perception of contempt on the part of the government at Richmond for the differences in certain fundamental political and societal principles which prevail between the varied counties and cities of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, In the latest, and most evident, in this string of grievances, the government at Richmond now seeks to place intolerable restraints upon the rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution to the citizens of that Commonwealth; and

Whereas, The Legislative body of West Virginia believes that this latest action defies the wise counsel which has come down to us in the august words of our common Virginia Founders: as the government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that tribune of liberty, Patrick Henry-who stated to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788 that “The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of a Signer of the Declaration and premier advocate of American independence, Richard Henry Lee-who stated in The Federal Farmer that “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of that zealous guardian of our inherent rights, George Mason-who stated that “To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them”; and

Whereas, The government at Richmond now repudiates the counsel of the declaimer of our independence and theoretician of our freedoms, Thomas Jefferson-who stated in his first draft of the Virginia Constitution, that “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms”; and

Whereas, The Boards of Supervisors of many Virginia counties and the Councils of many Virginia cities have recognized this dangerous departure from the doctrine of the Founders on the part of the government at Richmond; and

Whereas, These Boards of Supervisors and Councils have passed resolutions refusing to countenance what they affirm are unwarranted and unconstitutional measures by that government to infringe the firearm rights of Virginians; and

Whereas, The actions of the government at Richmond undertaken since the recent general election have, regrettably, resulted in unproductive contention and escalating a lamentable state of civic tension; and

Whereas, That, as has been proven in numerous instances, such as have been observed internationally in more recent times with the peaceful dissolutions of Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union, and the creation of South Sudan, or, earlier in Virginia’s own history, with the formation of Kentucky, the peaceful partition of neighboring peoples can occur, and, is often very beneficial to both sides in reducing tensions and improving the tenor of discourse over ongoing political and societal differences; and

Whereas, Article VI, Section 11 of The Constitution of the State of West Virginia explicitly permits additional territory to be admitted into, and become part of this state, with the consent of the Legislature and of a majority of the qualified voters of the state; and

Whereas, In a spirit of conciliation, the Legislature of West Virginia hereby extends an invitation to our fellow Virginians who wish to do so, to join us in our noble experiment of 156 years of separation from the government at Richmond; and, we extend an invitation to any constituent county or city of the Commonwealth of Virginia to be admitted to the body politic of the State of West Virginia, under the conditions set forth in our state Constitution, specifically, with the consent of a majority of the voters of such county or city voting upon such proposition; and we hereby covenant that their many grievances shall be addressed, and, we further covenant with them that their firearms rights shall be protected to the fullest extent possible under our Federal and State Constitutions; and

Whereas, Providing that the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Virginia shall give its assent to any county or independent city presently part of the Commonwealth of Virginia having the opportunity and ability to do so, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia.
