Government Tells The Taxpayer Where To Go
The Average American Blog ^ | 08/23/11 | Jenn Harrington

So, the other day I’m thinking to myself, who are the Tea Party? We’re actually a really diverse group, crossing lines of party, religion and race, even income divisions. What holds us together as a group? And then it dawned on me, that in addition to believing in small government, self-reliance and adherence to the Constitution, there is probably an even easier way to define the Tea Party. We’re tax payers, basically. I would guess the majority in the Tea Party are those who actually pay the taxes.

So when Maxine Waters, piped up with “The Tea Party can go straight to He**” I thought to myself “That’s interesting…

I’d suggest that Maxine should propose not taxing TEA Partiers so she won’t have to live off of our tax support for her and the rest of the ‘rats.

An article in Forbes really summed it up nicely.

Predominately, the RNC is made up of people who reach a consensus. The donations to the RNC are primarily from individuals donating $50, 100 or $150.

Predominately, the DNC is made out of groups who want the Gov’t to do something for them, individually. As a collective, the Gay Movement has little in common with the Pipe Fitter’s Union, AICU, SEIU, Teacher’s Union, Counsel of the Arts, the Environmentalists or anyone else. If left together in a bar; they would likely tear each other apart. An overwhelming majority of funding to the DNC comes from the Unions, with only 7% coming from the individual member.

The DNC is going to tear itself up soon. The common goal of using Union fees to give to their candidate; who in turn steers bills to favor unions; is coming to a crashing stop. Why? Well, manufacturing is moving overseas (primary source of Union members is going away), Wisconson and other states are decimating the Teacher’s Union with the collective bargaining issues, Teachers are being laid off, and the court fees won by the Environmental groups are also drying up.

Meanwhile, the RNC membership is gathering together; and seeing the utter failure of Liberal policies, and the damage it has done; Conservatives are becoming more vocal, instead of passive.

Look. The Fed benefitted big corporations and the stock market. Obama is only interesting in wealth redistribution. Look at the slides:

The Obama refi plan is a wealth transfer to 30 million households. Pure politics!

“It should be the highest ambition of every American to extend his views beyond himself, and to bear in mind that his conduct will not only affect himself, his country, and his immediate posterity; but that its influence may be co-extensive with the world, and stamp political happiness or misery on ages yet unborn.”

–George Washington, letter to the Legislature of Pennsylvania, 1789
