I ask myself this because I am in line with the Movements beliefs and values to the letter.  Yet, I have taken one further step and have committed to run for Congress in 2014.  I have the desire to commit the time, run on self imposed term limits and even a reduction in salary and benefits.

Yet, I have to unseat a moderate Republican who is as we say here, "dug in like a tick on a hound dog", as a career politician in a very wealthy community who will come out and vote.  Trying to unseat him in a primary would not work well as a plan.

So I must do it as an Independent Candidate. Interesting dilemma, the movement has never supported an Independent before which has brought some criticism to the Tea Party Movement and who they really are.

We had better wake up and realize the system is broken.  With the exception of some good people such as Ted Cruz, these people who are representing us only care in being reelected as career politicians and have never had a true job or budget before, let alone balance one, in their lives.  Obamcare is a good example, it is totally wrong and should be repealed and our spending is irresponsible and out of control.  However, rather then work on fixing these problems our politicians see a hole in the Obamacare system due to a 6 million dollar disaster of a website.

There is still the debt ceiling crisis to deal with and putting an end to Obamacare. But instead, they see fit to hold hearings, at our expense, to find out what went wrong with the website and who is to blame. We are not idiots, we know Obamacare is wrong.  Why spend 6 million more dollars on a hearing to find out what went wrong with a website?  It was all about posturing and getting free radio and TV time as 2014 rolls around.  There is a trillion dollar problem which is much bigger and coming up again.  

It is time someone step up and really try to do something before it is too late.  The Dems have pulled out the nuclear option which could be far worse then anyone realizes.  With or without you I am committed.

Comment by Ted DeMatteo for US Congress on November 28, 2013 at 10:01pm
Steve:

I didn't say you don't have a point, I was saying what is the point in asking for help from you for the last month. All I have heard is your going to sometime in the future make a candidate section. I would say that is a little late from other people I have spoken with, including, Joe, your hero.

All I get is 40 emails a day to send my congressman an email and pleas for donations. Who are you actively supporting right now? I guess I don't fit in because even though we have the exact same beliefs and values, I have to run against a moderate Republican as an Independant.

So if you are not supporting me, you are supporting him, a moderate Republican who has rolled over more times then my dog.

It's interesting you request donations. For what? Anyone can email their Congressmen for free at any time. I don't get it. The people of this country are not idiots. We understand the issues and are powerless against a broke system that needs to be fixed. How do you exactly plan to get congress back to one of your care values of making it possible for all the good people of our society to be able to run for election? One will not even be considered as a serious candidate without I million dollars and that is on the loe side. Congress has never had such a low approval rating and the time is now in 2014 before all is lost.

All of the Texas seats are up for reelection as well as many more. Who are you supporting and how?

Ted, we are awake, this is why this site and others are up and working for America.

Remember, over 75% of our candidates win! Who else can say that? This group, TeaParty.org sends over 750K fax pages to Congress every month! They send over 250 million opt-in emails to subscribers every year and this site has over 38K bloggers.

Also, TeaParty.org sends over 1 million snail mail pieces every month.

Furthermore, TeaParty.org is in the top 30k of all the websites in the world and is number 1 ranked of all the Tea Parties by Google. This site is ranked number 3 of all the Tea Party websites, therefore this group controls the 1st and 3rd Tea Party websites in America! 

So, now you should know the Tea Party has a point and a lot of them.

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
