Tea Party

Don't want to be a "Party Pooper" but I am saddened by the direction I see the Tea Party going.  The numerous e-mails receieved from National Directors De and Melony sound more like something from a liberal organization.  What's up with all the name calling and sniveling and acting like the liberals do.  Let's get back to facts and logic without all the crybaby emotion.  What started out with true good intentions is going down the drain fast.  Let our goal be organization and integrity and be more like the NRA.

  • Sharon;
    What saddens me is the rhetoric that is passed off as commentary from the left, and is taken as serious thought by a lot of people. When the leadership on the left is totally counter to what rational people are used to, they think they can sugar coat it or use 2,000 word legislation to cover and confuse the issue. Those that can wade through the mess, like professional septic tank cleaners cannot overstate the obvious; This administration IS hellbent on its promise of fundamental change and NOT for the. better.
    Please, the stress and strain of our fight for freedom is NOTHING compared to our forefathers. But we HAVE to bear that load; the consequences if we fail ARE going to be worse than dire. Just watch the news for reports coming from Europe and think ahead just a bit; it can and just might happen here.
  • I find that many people are incapable of carrying a factual conversation. There are many parts to subjects that people can only use their emotional brain wave to. Today is the age where different

    subjects can be investigated on the Internet for facts. Just because we see it in print does not mean

    the article has the whole truth or even the partial truth. Only more accurate information in a given time span can usually let us know the truth.  Some authors will purposely misled readers who do not care for the truth! True good ideas with good sound ethics led to success! Government is one place where the representatives  in Washington, D.C., Republicans or Democrats, and elsewhere need to be well inform from their constituents.  Or replace the representatives, Republicans or Democrats, who use only emotion & greed to govern for their own wealth!

    Joseph, the intent of the rules discussion was to stop members from bashing each other.  Some profanity we won't allow....otherwise, we are big boys and girls...we've heard a few cuss words in our days. Said a few too! LOL

  • How does one NOT be emotional when our Republic is at stake???  For too long have we either been apathetic or asleep and it stops now! You cannot achieve ANYthing without passion and in fact, this is the blood which operates and motivates.  Take a lesson... or is the goal continued lackluster ambivalence and failure in the face of our Imposter in the WH and those who control his strings? 

  • Wow!  I am so grateful for the Tea Party website because we are allowed to read reports that do not normally make it to news sites.  I am emotional about how our government is rallying against us with Obama and Soros at the wheel.  Many of us enjoy lashing out on this site with many members teaching history as reminders.  I feel overwhelmed every day worrying where our lives are going, and just knowing we can voice our concerns with others, helps tremendously.

  • This is very interesting and well worth taking the time to read. Israeli Psychologist on Obama >This Came out in late 2008 received little recognition. It quite appropo this week. Dr. Sam Vaknin is an Israeli psychologist. Interesting view on our new president. Dr. Vaknin has written extensively about narcissism. Dr. Vaknin States "I must > confess I was impressed by Sen.Barack Obama from the first time I saw him. At first I was excited to see a black candidate. He looked youthful, spoke well, appeared to be confident - a wholesome presidential package. I was put off soon, not just because of his shallowness but also because there was an air of haughtiness in his demeanor that was unsettling. His posture and his body language were louder than his empty words. Obama's speeches are unlike any political speech we have heard in American history. Never a politician in this land had such quasi "religious" impact on so many people. The fact that Obama is a total incognito with zero  accomplishment,  makes this inexplicable infatuation alarming. Obama is not an ordinary man. He is not a genius. In fact he is quite ignorant on most important subjects." Barack Obama is a narcissist. Dr. Sam Vaknin, the author of the Malignant Self Love believes "Barack Obama appears to be a narcissist." Vaknin is a world authority on narcissism. He understands narcissism and describes the inner mind of a narcissist like no other person. When he talks about narcissism everyone listens. Vaknin says that Obama's language, posture and demeanor, and the testimonies of his closest, dearest friends suggest that the Senator is either a narcissist or he may have narcissistic personality disorder (NPD). Narcissists project a grandiose but false image of themselves. Jim Jones, the charismatic leader of People's Temple, the man who led over 900 of his followers to cheerfully commit mass suicide and even murder their own children was also a narcissist. David Koresh, Charles Manson, Joseph Koni, Shoko Asahara, Stalin, Saddam, Mao,Kim Jong Ill and Adolph Hitler are a few examples of narcissists of our time. All these men had a tremendous influence over their fanciers. They created a personality cult around themselves and with their blazing speeches elevated their admirers, filled their hearts with enthusiasm and instilled in their minds a new zest for life. They gave them hope! They promised them the moon, but alas, invariably they brought them to their doom. When you are a victim of a cult of personality, you don't know it until it is too late. One determining factor in the development of NPD is childhood abuse. "Obama's early life was decidedly chaotic and replete with traumatic and mentally bruising dislocations,"says Vaknin. "Mixed- race marriages were even less common then. His parents went through a divorce when he was an infant (two years old). Obama saw his father only once again, before he died in a car accident. Then his mother re-married and Obama had to relocate to Indonesia, a foreign land with a radically foreign culture, to be raised by a step-father. At the age of ten, he was whisked off to live with his maternal (white) grandparents. He saw his mother only intermittently in the following few years and then she vanished from his life in 1979. She died of cancer in 1995." One must never underestimate the manipulative genius of pathological narcissists. They project such an imposing personality that it overwhelms those around them. Charmed by the charisma of the narcissist, people become like clay in his hands. They cheerfully do his bidding and delight to be at his service. The narcissist shapes the world around himself and reduces others in his own inverted image. He creates a cult of personality. His admirers become his co-dependents. Narcissists have no interest in things that do not help them to reach their personal objective. They are focused on one thing alone and that is power.. All other issues are meaningless to them and they do not want to waste their precious time on trivialities... Anything that does not help them is beneath them and do not deserve their attention. If an issue raised in the Senate does not help Obama in one way or another, he has no interest in it. The "present" vote is a safe vote. No one can criticize him if things go wrong. Those issues are unworthy by their very nature because they are not about him. Obama's election as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review led to a contract and advance to write a book about race relations. The University of Chicago Law School provided him a lot longer than expected and at the end it evolved into, guess what? His own autobiography! Instead of writing a scholarly paper focusing on race relations, for which he had been paid, Obama could not resist writing about his most sublime self. He> entitled the book Dreams from My Father. Not surprisingly, Adolph Hitler also wrote his own autobiography when he was still a nobody. So did Stalin. For a narcissist no subject is as important as his own self. Why would he waste his precious time and genius writing about insignificant things when he can write about such an august being as himself? Narcissists are often callous and even ruthless. As the norm, they lack conscience.. This is evident from Obama's lack of interest in his own brother who lives on only one dollar per month. A man who lives in luxury, who takes a private jet to vacation in Hawaii, and who has raised nearly half a billion dollars for his campaign (something unprecedented in history) has no interest in the plight of his own brother. Why? Because, his brother cannot be used for his ascent to power. A narcissist cares for no one but himself. This election is like no other in the history of America. The issues are insignificant compared to what is at stake. What can be more dangerous than having a man bereft of conscience, a serial liar, and one who cannot distinguish his fantasies from reality as the leader of the free world?

    I hate to sound alarmist, but one is a fool if one is not alarmed. Many politicians are narcissists.. They  pose no threat to others... >They are simply self serving and selfish.  Obama evidences symptoms of pathological narcissism,  which is  different from the run-of-the-mill narcissism of a  Richard Nixon or  a Bill Clinton for example. To him reality and  fantasy are intertwined.  This is a mental health issue, not just a character flaw. Pathological narcissists are dangerous because they look normal and even intelligent. It is this disguise that makes them treacherous. Today the Democrats have placed all their hopes in Obama. But this man could put an end to their party. The great majority of blacks have also decided to vote for Obama. Only a fool does not know that their support for him is racially driven. This is racism, pure and simple. The downside of this is that if Obama turns out to be the disaster I predict, he will cause widespread resentment among the whites. The blacks are  unlikely to give up their support of their man. Cultic mentality is pernicious and unrelenting.  They will dig their heads deeper in the sand and  blame Obama's detractors of racism. This will cause a backlash among the whites. The white supremacists will take advantage of the discontent and they will receive widespread support. I predict that in less than four years, racial tensions will increase to levels never seen since the turbulent 1960's..  Obama will set the clock back decades... America is the bastion of freedom. The peace of the world depends on the strength of America, and its weakness translates into the triumph of terrorism and victory of rogue nations. It is no wonder that Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez, the Castroists, the Hezbollah, the Hamas, the lawyers of the Guantanamo terrorists and virtually all sworn enemies of America are so thrilled by the prospect of their man in  the White House.  America is on the verge of destruction. There is no insanity greater than electing a pathological narcissist as  president.

    This article was written in 2008? Prophesy or just the intellectual understanding  of how dangerous and treacherous a NPD individual can be.

    Okay, let me break your complaints down here. 

    1. You are sadden by the direction of the Tea Party.

      ~you have been on this site since 2010.  What have YOU personally done to volunteer your time and efforts to mold the site in the direction you feel it should go?  I see two posts on your page and both are on this page.

    2.  You don't like emails from us?

    ~Okay, turn them off.  That is easy.

    3.  We act like Liberals with 'crybaby emotion'

    ~WOW, you throw a public temper tantrum with this blog and accuse other of 'crybaby emotion'?  Seriously?  I'm mad as hell about what is going on with this country's government.  I'll match the Conservative credentials of the site staff to yours any day of the week.  YOU owe US an apology for comparing us to liberals.

    4.  Going down the drain fast?

    ~ Guess that is why our membership keeps increasing and our numbers for March were off the charts from previous months. (guess you missed that sniveling email??)

    5.  ~the media getting screwed by Obama is the alternative conservative sites (logic, my dear, it is a wonderful thing)

    6. The 100,000 households project: "What I fear is that it won't be done with facts and truth only but with name calling and emotion mixed in."

    ~ So, with no Facts about how the project is being operated, you choose to 'fear' (fear is an emotion is it not?) it is not being run factually? 

    7.  It appears you feel threatened by my opinion.  What part of my suggestions do you oppose and why?  My question to you - Are you a CEO or a dictator for the Tea Party?

    ~ Threatened by your opinion?  Nope.  Just amazed that you feel a public forum is the place to promote your 'ideas' rather than send a private message to any of the staff. 

    ~what part of your suggestions are opposed?  Better question:  what sweat equity are you willing to VOLUNTEER to the site?  2 posts, 2 years.....not much to judge from there.

    ~CEO or Dictator?  Wow, just wow.  Is that not sniveling, name calling and acting like liberals do???? Pot meet kettle.

    November 2012 is going to be the most important election this country has seen in a very long time.  Emotional about it, heck yes, because we do not want FOUR MORE YEARS of SOCIALISTS and COMMUNISTS in D.C.  We are in a FIGHT for the future of our children, grandchildren and a country we love. 

    I, like Steve, would recommend that if you do not like what we do here and if is offending your sensibilities, then it is perhaps time to leave because the fight is on and we are going to be here everyday fighting it. 

  • Previous blog was not intented to condemn the need or great benefit the Tea Party is and can still be to our nation.  As a member I would expect my view to at least be considered.  If I am a minority in my opinion in this matter, I respectfully back off.  I have already recieved an  e-mail from Steve Eichler, CEO Tea Party.  He appears to be on the defense.  He stated in this e-mail that the "lame brained media is getting screwed by Americas Fraud President".  This is a false statement based on emotion.  The liberal media has the full backing of Obama and visa-versa.  That is dangerous. These types of false statements being publised by the Tea Party as facts  is what I am concerned about.     To have a goal to reach 100,000 households with the truth about Obama is a good, beneficial goal.  I agree with that idea totaly.  What I fear is that it won't be done with facts and truth only but with name calling and emotion mixed in. That will distract from the issues at hand. If given the opportunity to reach this many Americans, let us do so wisely and with integrity to be of strong benefit to the cause.  Steve Eichler's e-mail  questioned my patriotism and suggested I leave the Tea Party?  I promise you Steve I love the United States and stand for our constitution.  It appears you feel threatened by my opinion.  What part of my suggestions do you oppose and why?  My question to you - Are you a CEO or a dictator for the Tea Party?
