I am sitting here listening to the Governor of Maryland, Martin O’Malley, being interviewed by Greta VanSusteren on “On The Record”. He has consistently made the comment of how the TEA Party is the cause of the USA’s downgrade from our AAA rating. Listening to him try to convince Greta that we, TEA party members, have taken the Republican party ‘hostage’ and are destroying this economy because of an ideology that is unsustainable, is making my blood boil! He is not the first person I have heard make these same statements. I also saw where John ‘Swift boat’ Kerry was making the same comments about the TEA party and how the Republican party is being held ‘hostage’ by a group of ideologues. And there are many others out there spouting the very same comments, word for word. There must have been an email or a memo that has been distributed among ALL of the Democrats nationwide to try to dissuade the Independent and Moderate voters from joining with the TEA party to return our government to rational thinking and abiding by the Law of the Land, the United States Constitution!
As everyone in the TEA party knows, WE have been the ONLY voices calling for DEEP cuts in spending, NO more debt increases, which is the REAL reason the credit rating of the USA was downgraded, CUT wasteful programs, and too many other things to list, that will help get our government out of the hole it is digging.
I am at a loss to figure out why it is so hard for the people in the Democratic party to see what is actually happening to this country. There could be numerous reasons for their blindness. 1) could it possibly be they actually want the capitalistic economy to collapse? 2) could it blind allegiance to their leader, Obama? 3) maybe it’s because they want the “business as usual” to continue 4) or they are all left-over hippies of the 60’s and their “communal” ideology has never left their minds 5) they are just in plain out denial about what is happening 6) they are not as smart as we thought they are 7) they are all secretly marxist, socialist, communists; are just a few I can think of.
I agree with Colonel Allen West, America is like a ship headed on a collision course without a Captain! We have had NO leadership in this Nation for about 5 years now. And the reason I say that is because I firmly believe President George W. Bush was so tired of fighting tooth and nail to get things done, that his last 2 years as President, he just did everything he possibly could to make it tough on the next incoming President. I know that sounds harsh, but he was a completely different man when he left office than he was in the entirety of his first term.
I also believe the Republican party knew exactly what a mess we were headed for and that’s exactly why John McCain was nominated, because the “Republican elite or establishment” knew that Senator McCain didn’t stand a snowball’s chance in Hell of beating Obama in the 2008 Presidential election. I also believe they didn’t want a Republican as President with the economy fixing to ‘tank’. Call me a conspiracy theorist, if you want to, but it is very possible. They put Sarah Palin as his running mate to make it look like he was a legitimate candidate, but they knew he still wouldn’t have a chance and they had to at least make it look like he did. But what they didn’t count on was the reaction Sarah was going to have on the American people! I thank God everyday for the bumble-head who thought up the idea of getting Governor Palin to run as McCain’s Vice Presidential candidate. That was the best backwards thinking decision to come out of the Republican party since Ronald Reagan! I’m sure whoever thought up that plan has surely been fired or demoted by now, but they sure gave us TEA party members a hopeful chance that the snowball is going to survive its trip to Hell and come out the victor!
Until next time, may God’s grace and mercy be with you!
