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 Obamcare is a good example, it is totally wrong and should be repealed and our spending is irresponsible and out of control.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.
