Thanks to all the Tea Partiers for all you do for the Conservative cause!

The Awakening

.

It was a sunny day as I stood on the Capitol steps in D.C.

There was a great sea of people on the lawn before me

What brand of protestor be these with signs not vulgar or profane

Who called for prosperity, lower taxes, less government caused pain?

.

They invoked God and his forgiveness as they did pray

They said the pledge and sang the Anthem at each meeting day

So many people and yet they left behind not a speck of trash

For as far as you could see there was only green grass!

.

This new kind of protestor was without doubt a rare breed

All colors, all races, all faiths, all avocations and all creeds

Proclaiming their love of Country, patriots one and all

Honoring the Veterans and all, who had answered the call.

.

The Tea Party movement had been born at long, long last

Their name harkened back to patriots from our revolutionary past

We would know them by their patriotic garb, slogans and signs

Some on the left called them Astroturf, terrorists and worse at times.

.

They advocated for free markets, fiscal responsibility, freedom and liberty,

For Constitutional limits on the State and Federal government’s authority

They believe that “We the people” are the rightful masters of the land

And that the government works for us through God’s guiding hand.

.

At last the great silent majority had awakened and loudly they spoke

This November past, the Left and the media learned they were no joke

They stood proud for God, Country and principles with character so hardy

Taxed Enough Already became the battle cry of the modern day Tea Party.

.

What a counterpoint to the protests of the left in the past

With their signs advocating for peace, but that didn’t last.

No short sleeved shirts for their police guards on duty

Full riot gear was the order of the day, to control the unruly!

.

The Left would invariably espouse their green philosophy

Yet their trash left behind was an environmental catastrophe

They carried signs with nooses round necks and heads lopped off

Of religion and family values they would most often scoff!

.

I always wondered if any Liberals realized the hypocrisy of it all

“Do as I say, not as I do”, must require a great deal of gall

Or was it as simple as they couldn’t think, they were sheep

They were just out there protesting together, their minds asleep.

.

These days the lights and cameras are on the Tea Party

The newly awakened and no longer silent majority

What a pleasure to see patriots standing for their God and Country

Knowing their actions won’t embarrass us here, or over the sea.

.

The job is not done for the Tea Party; indeed, it just started

There is bad legislation to repeal and earmarks needing to be parted

A balanced budget amendment would be a good place to begin

Make the tax cuts permanent and the wasteful spending reign in!

.

The voters have spoken, Tea Party principles they embrace

They have flipped the House, the Senate, they'll finish next race

It is now for the new Congress to show they are up to the job

Or else next Election Day they will face, yet another angry mob!

Reality is a school, one in which we learn by experiencing the consequences of our choices. Freewill is the conscious ability to choose, a necessary condition for learning. Rene Magritte (Belguim Surrealist Painter): "The mind loves the unknown. It loves images whose meaning is unknown, since the meaning of the mind itself is unknown."

Charles F. Kettering (American inventor): We should all be concerned about the future because we’ll have to spend the rest of our lives there. Read my contribution. "How to Prepare for the Worst."

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
