How the Tea Party Will Lose The 2014 Election

How the Tea Party Will Lose The 2014 Election

 

 

 

Yes, I do believe that conservatives will wake up in November 2014 to find that they have lost the senate and maybe the house; though I will admit we just might retain the house.  Maybe.

All because there really is no Tea Party.  There are the Tea Parties, plural and they don’t talk to each other.  They each have their own agenda.  They don’t even agree on their basic tenets.  There is the “Tea Party Patriots” with a web site here that states their mission as being simply …to restore America's founding principles of Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets.

Then there is the Tea Party Command Center with a web site here with 15 ‘basic tenets’.

And of course the Tea Party express with six points in their mission statement.  Their web site is here.

On each page if you want to see their mission statements for yourself just click on the ‘about’ link at the top of their home pages.

There are others but I think you get the point.  Each of these has their own agenda and each goes after their own political ogres.  And I am sure each will have their own favorite candidates to endorse.  There is no focus within this hodgepodge of political theologies.  They can’t even focus enough to get very detrimental Presidential appointees disapproved!  Thomas Perez as Secretary of Labor???  WOW.  If he has his way, forced unionism will be a federal law that will supposedly override any and all state laws, the tenth amendment not-with-standing.  How about Obama’s socialist bed mate Kathleen Sebelius as Secretary of Health and Human Services overseeing the dreaded Obamacare. 

Ok.  OK.  I’ll get back to the point.

With this much diversity among the so called Tea Parties, they accomplish nothing.  The speaker of the house, a republican in name only (RINO) is touting the immigration reform acts as they come down from his new bosses in the senate.  Who would have thought that a Speaker would go on national TV and call himself a “facilitator”.  Gee I thought he was supposed to be the Leader of the majority party.  I guess with the mind set of our esteemed politicians that just ain’t true anymore.  He has other leadership issues and broken promises, but I said I would try to get back to the point of this blog.

The next point about the fractious Tea Parties is the local organizations.  They, for the most part, are far from local in their focus.  They want to be on the main stage so they go after national issues.  The Tea Party in my own county even refuses to endorse candidates for public offices claiming that they are ‘educational and therefore can’t do that.  I have some news for them.  There are basically only two entities that can’t endorse political candidates.  Any registered religious group due to the separation of church and state and any organization that receives the bulk of their funding from the tax payers such as PUBLIC schools.  Private non religious educational organizations that don’t receive funding from the tax payers are completely free to do so.  The local groups really need to focus on getting local issues made into laws.  Want to take back the senate?  Get behind a good conservative candidate and PUSH!  Want to stop the amnesty?  Deluge your own states senators and representatives with faxes, phone calls and letters telling them to represent their constituents.  Now there’s a revolutionary idea.  An elected representative representing.   I would like to start a new Tea Party in my county.  One dedicated to the two items of interest to our population.  Political education of the issues of local interest and the backing of conservative candidates.  We might call it the Local Tea Party, or some such.

It is up to us, the people that provide the Tea Party leaders with their incomes to make our individual voices heard and demand and accounting.  Why can’t they sit down with the leaders of all of the national Tea Parties and work out a concerted effort on one or two issues and a bunch of national conservative candidates then FOCUS or lose yet another election and perhaps an entire nation.  Let’s face it folks, WE THE PEOPLE pay these people too and they should reflect our needs not their own.

Thank you fo the kind words, Terri.  They mean a lot coming from you.

Perhaps the word perception was ill advised. I do recognize that all 501(c)(3) organizations are strictly banned from political endorsements.

Terri; there is one more point I would like to make.  I am afraid that I must disagree, respectfully, with your point on not supporting a candidate. Your position assumes that people will accept or even want to be educated.  In this world there are a massive amount of lazy and apathetic people that would rather have someone they like or respect tell them what choices to make at the poles.  That way they can go back to their computer games and TV with the unearned but very real feeling that they have done a good thing.  They did vote.

Thanks for the comments Terri.  And yes, I should have made that clearer.  The ban does include the non profits (501 (c)(3) since they don't have the taxes therefore are perceived as having government funding.   And I guess, in a way, that is true.

ALERT ALERT

 Rush Limbaugh: Hillary Just Admitted To Everything
I’ve Been Trying To Warn People About The Democrats!ll  

(TeaParty.org) – Rush Limbaugh, the godfather of conservative punditry, has a hait of being right.

And he’s well aware of this.

During a recent show, the commentator pointed out that Hillary Clinton had recently confirmed everything he’s been saying about Democrats for years.

Clinton, whose recent interview with CNN journalist Christiane Amanpour made headlines for many of the stunning things she said, also made a call for non-civility because the Democrats are not in power.

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” she said. “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

“(Hillary) pretty much admitted everything I have been trying to warn people of about the American left and the Democrat Party!” Limbaugh responded on his show.

“She went out and in her best Maxine Waters impersonation,” he continued. “She was encouraging people to be uncivil, and she was saying that it was justified being uncivil, given the opposition, the Republicans.”

Rush is well-aware that Democrats have only been feining civility whenever it suits their desperate pursuit of power.

“(I)f they win the House, then they can go back to being civil. If they win the Senate, then they can return to civility,” he summed up Clinton’s position.

“I mean, they’re making the case, they’re proving the point .… In all of this crazy, deranged, unhinged behavior of left-wing activists, I haven’t heard one elected Democrat denounce it,” he explained. “I haven’t heard one elected Democrat attempt to distance himself or herself or the party from it.”

The behavior he speaks of has been on full display in the attempt by an angry mob to disrupt Ted and Heidi Cruz’s dinner last month, and the angry mob that tried to knock down the 30-ton doors to the Supreme Court when Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in.

This is not a change in the tenor of Democrats, Limbaugh explained, but only them showing their true colors.

“They are all encouraging it. My point is: This is who they all are — and with Hillary Clinton now advocating this incivility,” he said.

“What did I tell you yesterday? We’re not in a battle of ideas anymore. We’re not in an argument over ideas,” he continued. “They don’t… They’re not even looking at any of this as about ideas.”

He explained that the right and the left vary not just in ideology, but in their fundmantal view of America.

“They see America today as flawed and illegitimate and, therefore, in need of a new set of defining values that will serve to unify the people who want to be part of America,” he continued.

“Not anything to do with our founding. Not the Constitution. Not the Declaration. That’s out the window ’cause all that’s tainted,” he said, explaining the way the left sees things. “All of that was written by a bunch of privileged white guys who were setting up a system for themselves and their families and their descendants.”

But we don’t even need Limbaugh to explain this…this comes right from the horse’s mouth:

Rush Limbaugh: Hillary Literally Just Came Clean on Everything I’ve Been Saying About the Left

Rush Limbaugh: Hillary Literally Just Came Clean on Everything I’ve Been Saying About the Left -...

There are few people who can call out the empty […]

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently declared that “America was never great.”

Michelle Obama claimed to have never been proud of her country until they elected her husband.

Her husband openly admitted he wanted to “fundamentally transform” our country.

Maxine Waters refuses to backtrack on her call to harass GOP lawmakers in public.

All this while Antia wages war on anyone they disagree with, armed with whatever makeshift weapon the can scrape together.

They’re telling is what they’re up to. It’s time to start listening.
